Oh, this sounds really interesting - I mean, even as a casual Sherlock fan, I felt Season 4 was a hot mess of tropes in many (far too many) ways, but one of the elements I enjoyed was the expanded role for Mycroft and his relationship to Eurus

I already downloaded the fic and will try to get back to you as soon as I can :) And I agree - even watching from the sidelines, the canon seems to be very rewarding. It's a shame that Sherlock seems to also be one of the major current hotbeds of fannish wank.

*stares at your icon for a second, misty-eyed* Boy, has it been a long time since I have seen this picture, but it's always nice to be reminded...

It is most rewarding!

I noticed! As I said, I am a casual watcher at best, but some of the dynamics in the fourth season were actually more complex than previously - for example, although I thought that John being a person who contemplates affairs came a bit out of left field (it's less that I don't think he would have them as such, and more that I felt they rushed things a bit there in terms of the pacing), I loved how they made him forgiving Sherlock after Mary's death/sacrifice a process and not an instant done deal. And I cannot help myself: although there is something vaguely supernatural about the whole Eurus subplot I loved it. I mean, I just love the idea that the abilities of the Holmes kids are all tied to seeing the story structures of reality itself. And that Eurus is literally the Madwoman in the Attic of the *the* most famous representative of Victorian rationality just strikes me as nifty.

And yeah, the wank on fannish tumblr is so many variants of DO. NOT. WANT. (and a fair helping of DO NOT GET, as well, to tell the truth) that I am very happy staying far away from it as well

I forgot I had this icon on this account, and I saw it, and was all, OMG. Had to use it! :D

I can why you would - this particular picture really is a sight for sore eyes, isn't it? Though, to be honest, the fact that your brain went from "I am talking to Makamu" to "have to use Viggo icon" seems to indicate that the association is too ingrained now for me to ever get rid of it. Good :D

I loved reading your observations! It's actually great getting them from a casual watcher, someone not deeply invested. Thank you for sharing them!

Thank you, glad you like them! Well, to be honest, I think it's been a long time since I have been a casual watcher in the conventional sense, I suppose. Together, fandom and literary studies have made me *such* a pattern seeker that I am always analysing stuff while watching...
