Sherlock: Headcanon being Mycroft's daughter and skipping school for "working" with your uncle
Can this actually be my life please I wanna work with Sherlock. I had fun writing this AHHAH thanks for the request anon!
Being Mycroft’s daughter and skipping school for “work” with your uncle:
Sherlock likes taking you along to cases for three reasons: to annoy Mycroft, your deductions are entertaining, and sometimes you make good suggestions.
“This case is particularity gruesome, Sherlock.” “Call a cab, John, we’re picking up (y/n).” “Did you not just hear me say ‘gruesome’, Sherlock?” “I know. Perfect for (y/n).”
Mycroft obviously doesn’t drive you to school everyday, one of his assistants do.
Sherlock is already at your school, waiting for your car to drive away.
“Sherlock, I really don’t think we should be taking (y/n) out of class-” “Shut up John, the case is much more interesting than whatever Literature class (y/n) is in right now. She’s much too advanced for that educational nonsense.”
Sherlock goes to the school office during your first class.
“(y/n) Holmes, please report to the office. Your uncle is here saying there is a family emergency.” “Family emergency? I don’t think- Sherlock!”
You love hanging out with Sherlock and John. John likes hanging out with you too, but he disagrees with Sherlock on taking you out of school. Sherlock doesn’t care.
Sherlock always asks for your opinion before John’s. That kind of pisses John off, but then again he’s secretly fascinated at how tolerant and nice Sherlock is to his niece. Watching the two of you interact restores some faith in John that Sherlock is actually human.
“Ew, Sherlock look! That’s gross!” “Yes, good deduction, very articulate. Gross indeed.”
Sometimes Lestrade is there, and he’s always confused when he sees you.
“(y/n)? Isn’t she supposed to be at school?” “No, Lestrade, she’s here to help replace Anderson. And don’t you dare call Mycroft.” “I already did.” “George!” “It’s Greg!”
So Sherlock has to rush you back to school before Mycroft is there, but his car is already waiting outside the school.
“Hi dad.” “Don’t ‘hi dad’ me, (y/n). Where’s your uncle?” “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” “Really, (y/n), you’re as difficult as your uncl- SHERLOCK! GET IN HERE RIGHT NOW!”
So Sherlock has to sit next to you in the car and the both of you usually get a lecture. Mycroft lectures Sherlock about taking you out of school to see dead bodies and he lectures you about actually going with Sherlock.
But that doesn’t stop Sherlock from taking you to more cases and it doesn’t stop you from joining him.
Say what you want about Camp Camp and criticize it all you want (chances are, you’re probably right about what part of it you’re criticizing), it’s one of the most beautifully-animated adult cartoons out there.
the main dude has all of the makings of the broody antihero lead but is actually a chill puppy who just cares about the kids in his life
the main brains of the show are a black pilot, a lesbian doctor, and a teenager with adhd
“i’m the asshole who raided the pharmacy. singular.” “i’m also a single asshole.” is the FULL EXTENT of any kind of flirtation/romantic anything between the main male and female characters (even before jake finds out ally is gay), and is their first interaction
related to the above, there is no jealousy or bad blood or anything gross between ally’s girlfriend and jake (who is now her close friend) when they meet
no threat of sexual violence used toward anyone, even though we’re in an apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic world and that’s become the ~norm in dystopian fiction
the main guy is seeking redemption for the death of his sister and mother (in which he is blameless, but feels guilty), and the main girl is just trying to save the world and find her girlfriend - pretty much a swap of the typical action dynamic
ally isn’t sexualized, even by the male guard near her when she is in her underwear
most people in this world are super willing to help each other??? like it’s not ‘let’s exploit this situation for personal gain’ at every turn which gets hella irritating in dystopian fiction
@forlornlyoptimistic gave me a prompt, and what kind of person would i be if i refused such a legend??
She wakes to her phone oddly- and annoyingly, she’s trying to sleep- starting to play before clicking off.
It’s only when she recognizes the tune of we are family start for the third time does she make a mad scramble for her phone. Her limbs get trapped, and she’s thankful for Maggie’s late shift if only for the fact that she doesn’t have to hear her laughter or see that teasing smile.
(That teasing, dimpled smile.
That teasing, dimpled beautiful smile she gets to wake up to any morning she wants.
That smile that is warmth in its edges, tenderness in the crinkle of her eyes, and oh, affection seeps into her as easy as the sun.)
the group’s collective name is “Blade of Marmora”, not “Blades of Marmora”, right? Is this the only way they refer to themselves: the Blade, singular, and never Blades, plural?
2.8 is titled “The Blade of Marmora” - is that a reference to the group, as in that’s what they call themselves, or is that a reference specifically to Keith’s knife? Both?
2.3 - Ulaz says to Shiro in Shiro’s flashback, “The Blade of Marmora is with you” - same question as above??
2.3 - Later when Shiro meets Ulaz again, Shiro says “There are others working with you?” and Ulaz says “Yes. We are called the Blade of Marmora.” Which at least tells us that yes, that’s a reference to the Group (still holding out judgment on Keith’s knife/Keith symbolism…). The Group is still singular…
2. 8 - Kolivan introduces himself as “Kolivan, Leader of the Blade of Marmora”, which again points to a singular title. Would there ever be a situation where it’s grammatically appropriate that they’d be Blades of Marmora? Or is it always singular?
If Blade is singular, is Marmora plural? Is Marmora the collective, since Blade doesn’t seem to be? Or is Marmora also singular, referring to a person or an entity or a ??????
In conclusion: Is there ever a reference to plural Blades in the show, or is every instance we have so far singular?
