Hello! If you haven't already, you should consider watching BBC's In The Flesh!

Aw, thank you so much for the recommendation, Nonnie *whispers* but I have already seen and cried and blogged about it

tell me about a memory.

Oh uhm … this is pretty random lolol maybe you should have specified what kind of memory you want to know about; a good one or a bad one or … what made you message me in the first place? :D (no really, I’m curious)

But ok, I’ll just … ehm. I’m sorry if this isn’t very interesting or rather rambly, but I have the worst memory so it all kind of comes back to me while I’m typing it :/ I guess I’d better put it under a cut as well, just in case.

[[MORE]]

So, hmm. A memory. Last year hudsini and I went on a hiking trip to Eastern Frisia. It was the first time we planned a trip like that ourselves and all on our own, so we were pretty clueless about most of the important details (like for example how many kilometres we’d be able to walk in a day ahaha), but we just went ahead with it anyway. After all, we had a map, a backpack full of cookies and self-confidence, so what could possibly go wrong?

As it turns out; a lot of things. Our map was pretty much rendered useless by the fact that there were barely any road signs anywhere, not even when you entered a village or something, anything that could have told a clueless wanderer like us where the fuck we were. It didn’t help that the villages all looked the same and that no one actually seemed to live there, because there weren’t any people around (which might have had something to do with the weather … storm warning and everything). Or, you know, shops where we could have bought something to eat or drink. Plus there was the fact that one of the guesthouses apparently forgot about our reservation when we arrived there late at night, completely knackered and basically ready to fall into a small coma, so that was great.

At one point we found ourselves in a small village that didn’t even have any street signs and where even the houses all looked the same. Or at least we thought it was a village but it turned out that it was still a part of the town we had been trying to leave for about three hours lmao anyway, it was completely deserted, except for three kids aged something between 7 and 11, who for some reason all had the same haircut and wore the exact same jackets. And then only a couple of minutes after we’d left them behind, we saw the only other two people in that neighbourhood: two blokes on bicycles who also wore the exact same clothes?? It was surreal. I mean, we joked about being trapped in a creepy Doctor Who episode, but it actually was a bit creepy?

But despite all that it was a great trip, really. We had a lot of fun and when it wasn’t raining or smelling like liquid manure (or stinky cheese) it was actually quite beautiful

We also met a very lovely lady who went out of her way to help us out and offered us food and stuff. And we found a pizza place in one of the bigger villages (one that even had a name on a sign!) that more or less saved our lives, lolol.

So yeah … that was it. Sorry if that wasn’t what you were hoping for, but it was kind of out of the blue and I really do have a bad memory haha

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
