I really really want to know more about Mycroft’s character.

Lately, for whatever reason, my mind is continuing to return to the scene where he’s sitting alone in a large arm chair on Christmas, a glass of (scotch, perhaps?) in hand, by the fire. He’s all alone, the room is silent.

And that scene goes back and forth between the little Christmas party at 221 B Baker Street, where Sherlock is with John, John’s girlfriend, Mrs. Hudson, Molly, and Lestrade. (The most important people to him, which Moriarty was able to figure out. The more I look back on the Christmas party scene, the happier I am. Super happy that Lestrade is there. I think I’m really really liking the entire lot of characters for this show, truly.)

It’s just a sad scene, for Mycroft, really. He just looks so…lonely. It hurts to think about. And yet, it makes me all the more curious about him. He’s the entire British government, and yet has no companions? Every time he smiles…It’s strained, there’s a pain in his face. He’s consistently smiling, but he’s never *actually* smiling as the expression doesn’t reach his eyes. He looks as if he’s in this constant state of emotional ache. To think that Sherlock didn’t invite Mycroft to the party is sad…but I want to know why.

What drove the wedge between them? Sherlock seems truly angry at Mycroft, but Mycroft consistently worries about his safety. He’s very protective over Sherlock. I have to wonder if he was in on Sherlock faking his death? I’m inclined to think he wasn’t as he got a text like right after that scene and was placing his head in his hands.

I’ve also noticed that whenever Mycroft mentions Sherlock’s and his mother, Sherlock gets very defensive. What all happened there? I really want to know. And while their mother has been mentioned, twice, though briefly, I’ve never heard mention of their father.
