Thank you. :)

And I hate it too, but there seems to be more fandom activity on Tumblr than anywhere else.

LOL... I enjoyed the first season, but didn't care feel particularly fannish about it. Then after S2 I went directly to 'rabid fangirl' without passing go ;)

LOL. XD. I just recently watched the episodes and they were all out at once so...lol.

Out of curiosity, what is your favorite character, episode, and pairing?

Yes, and not quite so long to wait until the next lot! Lucky you *g*

Character: I would have said Sherlock until about a week ago, when I realised it was actually Mycroft. Yes, this was a very long time coming. I'm still a card-carrying Cumberbitch above all, though.

Episode: So difficult, but it'd probably be Scandal or Reichenbach. I probably lean towards Scandal, because it's fun and pretty but Reichenbach is amazing TV.

Pairing: Started out Sherlock/John like everyone else, but fell hard for Mycroft/Sherlock (despite the firm belief that incest is icky... that changed rather quickly), and I'm still here *g*

I know you're probably still processing, but would love to hear your own answers to all of the above!

BTW, just in case:

Things you need to know about Benedict Cumberbatch - Cabin Presssure.
Things you need to know about Mark Gatiss - The League of Gentlemen

...you'll thank me later ;P

When is the next series coming out? I cannot seem to find a solid date, but from what I've heard, sometime late 2013, early 2014?

Interesting. What draws you to Mycroft? (I personally didn't feel like we saw much of his character, so I'm curious to know your thoughts on him.)

I can understand a liking for Mycroft/Sherlock.

I was unable, sadly, to view (listen to?) the recording of Cabin Pressure.

I used to have a friend who looked like Mickey, the sweet, hapless job-seeker. It's a bit eerie. ;)

I am thankful for the link of the sherlock odd fic Tumblr.

I don't think there's a set date yet - I estimate the same as your rumours (late 2013/early 2014) based on the fact they screened s2 over Xmas/New Year last time.

Really, do you have all day? *g* As briefly as I can, Mycroft is very like Sherlock in many ways, but he's an adult, not an overgrown child (which I do find kind of charming about Sherlock, don't get me wrong). He also sincerely cares about Sherlock and his welfare. I think you mentioned competitiveness somewhere - if anything it's Sherlock who makes a point of competing with Mycroft and not vice-versa; Mycroft has nothing he needs to prove. I also find him lovely to look at, but that's a personal thing!

I remember a lot of CP eps were deleted from YouTube, but there are still snippets if you look there (1-3 minutes). Again, tumblr probably has them if you search tags.

...that freaks me out about Mickey 0.0

Re your PM, as I've said, McAfee hates my inbox for some reason, so I'll just answer you here (if you ever really want a PM on something, just PM me your email, or I can use the lj one).

Mycroft/Sherlock fic - well, obviously I'm going to say you should read my fic *cough*. But other good places to start are the tags on sherlockbbc:

and on AO3:

I've only just started compiling recs on my AO3 account, but some particular favourites are there:

How bizarre that you could only find ones where they're not brothers! I thought at most only one or two of those existed *g*. Enjoy!

That's such a long wait time, until the next season.

And I do understand the like of Mycroft/Sherlock. That is a good point; Sherlock is usually the one perpetuating the competition, it seems, and Mycroft does seem to care about Sherlock, and his welfare. I'm curious; why do you think that there seems to be a wedge between them? My guess is that Mycroft, especially given his career, was possibly the more valued and respected child, whereas Sherlock was often overlooked due to his behavior and odd interests, even if he is brilliant. What are your theories?

Thank you for the links!!! :D

If they aren't actually brothers, it takes away from the ship, at least for me.

That could be why the Sherlock fandom is insane. Or not.

I personally don't put it down to sibling rivalry (at least not in the sense of competing for parental attention - if anything, Sherlock has been thoroughly spoiled and indulged his entire life). Mycroft's always been the good, responsible one, Sherlock the druggie screw-up, and I think Sherlock himself resents that. Mycroft does tend to be interfering and bossy, but usually because he cares.

LOL, do you... not have a problem with incest!squick then? Although it does almost guarantee the angst.

That would make sense. Sherlock does seem like he was likely spoiled and indulged and perhaps does expect adoration from those around him, or something similar. And I do think Sherlock might resent Mycroft for being the good and responsible one.

And no, I'm not squicked by incest fic. And I'm always up for angst. ;)

Confession: I've never seen it. Although my mother said it was pretty good.

I enjoy the five stages of fandom!
