Hi. Uh, well, I need advice and heeey, you might be able to help. So, last year this guy asked me to dance. I didn't like him then ( he scared me at the time), so I quickly started dancing with my friend. I feel horrible about that to this day. So, semi was last night and I like the guy now and I sort of wanted to dance with him but I didn't know what to do so I didn't ask and he danced with my friend. I told my other friend that I think I liked the guy, but because I have never had a: continued

(cont’d) Crush on a guy before, and because he is the exact opposite of me she thinks I just think he’s an enigma, and that I don’t really have a crush on him. The thing is I don’t know WHAT I’m feeling, and it’s horrible. Like, even if I told him I wouldn’t know what to do because he’s more of a friend of my friends and I don’t all to him because I feel embarrassed and K can’t look at him in the eye without feeling weird what do I do

Oh my. Gosh, I’m not sure what made you think I’d be able to help, because I’m completely hopeless when it comes to flirting~ and emotions in general, but I’ll try (。・・。) god knows how the gf puts up with me, lol

First of all, take a deep breath, Anon.

It’s not that bad. It’s not the end of the world and it may seem complicated and frustrating and horrible now, because it’s emotional turmoil and hormones and stuff, but that will pass, I promise. Maybe you could ask yourself what it was that scared you about him at first, and what has changed since? Did he do anything in particular that made you like him? What is it that you like about him? And don’t worry if you don’t know what it is exactly, feelings are usually not that simple anyway and they don’t come with a guideline or a manual (now wouldn’t that be brilliant). It’s also not a bad thing at all if you find him fascinating, idk why your friend seems to think there’s a huge difference between that and having a crush on someone? 

Uhm, idk man … what can I tell you. While I think that it’s important that you figure out what your feelings are towards him, you probably can’t do that without him? You don’t have to tell him how you feel (which is easy because you don’t know, heh), but maybe try to hang out with him or somehow … idk … get to know him better? I know that’s easier said than done, especially when you’re feeling awkward and scared, but if you really want to get to the bottom of this you will have to include him eventually. And if he’s a friend of your friends, maybe you can find a way to be around him without it being just the two of you? And, I mean, he’s asked you to dance before, he obviously likes you in some way, you just have to find out what way that is, and if it’s the same way you like him.

Wow, I’m so not helping, aren’t I

Anyway, I wish you all the best, Nonnie. You can do this!!! Good luck ♥

There's a 3rd brother in the books, right? Maybe BBC is just trying to keep it as similar as the books.

No, there isn’t :) as far as I know, Doyle was considering ‘Sherrinford’ as a possible name before he decided on Sherlock, that’s why the name appears in his earlier notes. It was then taken by others (namely William Baring-Gould in his fictional biography of Sherlock Holmes) for an older brother of Mycroft and Sherlock, but that brother never once appears in the original stories, nor is he mentioned in any way.

He does however appear in several pastiches and apparently there are (historical) hints that there must have been an older brother who’d have to take over the family business or something so that Mycroft and Sherlock could go freely about their own businesses, but like I said; ACD never mentions any of that in the original stories. 

tbh I don’t mind the actual idea of there being an older brother, nor the fact that they’d deviate from the canon like that, because in the end these differences are what keeps Sherlock as a show interesting to people who know the books, but I just didn’t like the way they handled it? Like, in an off-hand remark ‘you know what happened to the other one’ as if it was nothing that we-don’t-know-what-terrible-thing happened to him and there was no need to ever mention it again idk

A little baby elephant stumbles in your ask box, holding a small letter in his mouth. He hands the note to you, "I love you. You are a wonderful, lovely person." Pass it on to the first ten people on your dash anonymously, you don't have to but it's nice to let someone know that they deserve to be happy :)

Aw, I love you too, little baby elephant
