sherlock loves pizza okay? greasy, cheesy, melty pizza. cheap quick late-night pizza, fancy high-end gourmet pizza, everything in between. he likes all kinds of toppings but his favorite is just a good, gooey five-cheese, the kind that pulls slices away with cheesy strings, which he gathers up with his fingertips of his other hand, and he always giggles and closes his eyes with enjoyment and gives john cheesy tomatoey greasy kisses when he laughs. and later when he gets the lactose-intolerant tummy ache he flops out on the sofa and whines, but when john tells him to stop eating pizza then, he just rolls his eyes. be realistic, john.
I'm trying to write a full AU fic of my own, and I love how you guys portray these characters and keep them so true to form, even in alternate universes. I'd really like to try and stick to that as much as possible, so aside from your own head canons, do any of you have any advice on writing any of the characters, specifically root and shaw? I really want to do them justice and I know max was talking about a balance of characterization/romance earlier. Thanks!
