Harlot O'Scara's Tumble-Stuff

I'm probably old enough to be your mother, but I'll never get old. I refuse. I take fan fic requests for Sherlock BBC, Being Human, Batman, and many other fandoms.
I sometimes post in character from my selected fandoms, and from my OC, Kathryn Kuipers, aka "Kit."

Mycroft just doesn’t care?


I am sitting here this morning, thinking over The Reichenbach Fall (thank you, Steve Thompson!)

While my parents were visiting last weekend, we watched the episode with them, and upon the re-watch, I had a few Mycroft-related thoughts. Of course, those seem to be about the only kind I have…

This is what trolliarty and I were talking about. Totally worth the read!

From The Adventure of The Empty House

  “I did not take long to think about it, Watson. Again I saw that grim face look over the cliff, and I knew that it was the precursor of another stone. I scrambled down on to the path. I don’t think I could have done it in cold blood. It was a hundred times more difficult than getting up. But I had no time to think of the danger, for another stone sang past me as I hung by my hands from the edge of the ledge. Halfway down I slipped, but, by the blessing of God, I landed, torn and bleeding, upon the path. I took to my heels, did ten miles over the mountains in the darkness, and a week later I found myself in Florence, with the certainty that no one in the world knew what had become of me.

     “I had only one confidant — my brother Mycroft. I owe you many apologies, my dear Watson, but it was all-important that it should be thought I was dead, and it is quite certain that you would not have written so convincing an account of my unhappy end had you not yourself thought that it was true. Several times during the last three years I have taken up my pen to write to you, but always I feared lest your affectionate regard for me should tempt you to some indiscretion which would betray my secret. For that reason I turned away from you this evening when you upset my books, for I was in danger at the time, and any show of surprise and emotion upon your part might have drawn attention to my identity and led to the most deplorable and irreparable results. As to Mycroft, I had to confide in him in order to obtain the money which I needed. The course of events in London did not run so well as I had hoped, for the trial of the Moriarty gang left two of its most dangerous members, my own most vindictive enemies, at liberty.”

TheNorwoodBuilder: Could we consider Mycroft for just a moment, please?

Very good analysis of Reichenbach Fall. I just want to add, that, if you go back and read “The Empty House” by ACD, you will see that it will be highly unlikely that the plan went wrong in any way.

Remember that it was ACD’s full intention of killing off Holmes once and for all in the Reichenbach Falls, and due to numerous fan complaints, outrage, and utter devastation, he wrote Empty House in order to bring Holmes back. Luckily he was a master of ret-con (he had to be, because he never kept notes or a concordance so he would screw up details and then have to back track to fix them). ^_^ But in this case, Gatiss (who will be writing this version of Empty House) will not have to be an expert in ret-con (although he is, to be sure), because they already have it planned out and know how Holmes faked his death.

The opener to Series 3 promises to be excellent, and we may be lucky enough to learn just how clever Mycroft is. Remember, in the books, Mycroft is superior to Sherlock with deduction — he’s just way more lazy.

As today is one of the possible/presumed dates of Sherlock’s “death”, and we’re all mourning togheter with John, could you also find a little corner of your heart where allocating a little concern about Mycroft?

I mean: even if I’m growing everyday more and more persuaded that Mycroft’s…
