“What is your brother like?” It was the sort of question one asked without thinking – a way to fill dead air.
“You’ve been through his File, haven’t you?” Sherlock asked, one brow raised – a signal to remind me that he disliked redundant conversations.
- “Of course,” I replied, colouring for a reason I couldn’t quite place. Examining the Personal Archive File of anyone you had met or could expect to meet was commonplace and expected. In fact, it is often considered rude not to do so soon after making a new acquaintance. If at your next meeting you couldn’t list all their high school sweethearts, you could find you had made an enemy instead of a friend. As usual, basic etiquette seemed not to apply to Sherlock, and, where he and his family were concerned, I felt as if I had been snooping.
“If you’ve been through his File, then you know what he’s like,” Sherlock said.
“I know who he presents himself to be,” I replied. I could tell I had surprised Sherlock, a vanishingly rare occurrence.
He regarded me closely for a moment then said in that cryptic way of his, “You are more than a mere conductor of light, aren’t you, John?”
“I don’t know what that means,” I replied in fond exasperation. “Is he anything like you?” I immediately regretted my question. Sherlock’s face darkened noticeably. Comparing him to his brother had obviously struck a nerve. -
“He’s much cleverer than I am.” I could see what it cost him to make that admission. He loathed false modesty, so I knew that even though “cleverness” is a somewhat slippery concept, by Sherlock’s definition, Mycroft had the superior mind.
Watch the book trailer and read an extended sample of SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE ADVENTURE OF THE PAPER JOURNAL on my Wattpad account (link out in my bio).
I see why JKR didn't end it like this though. She wanted a happy ending. EDIT: All y'all complaining about how this wouldn't have been possible because the epilogue was so short, etc., are missing the point? And besides, it would have taken like 2 lines to acknowledge this. For example: "Though harry knew that some parts of the war would never leave him, his scar had not pained him for 19 years. All was well." See? Was that so hard?
I went to a pool party tonight. It was an end of summer/college sendoff party. We tossed glowsticks in the pool (aesthetic) and threw tiny cold water balloons. It was chaotic haha but I had so much fun (unusual for me at parties). Now it's nearly one AM and I'm crying because it's all over and we're all going our separate ways and everything will be different now. I've had my fair share of issues with my friend group, but I still sobbed at the thought of leaving. Enjoy it while it lasts, kids. It's all over before you know it.
Not related at all to the rest of this caption but i am so disgusted by what's happening in charolettesville. I have no words. I hope that one day we will learn to love.
