i sincerely apologize for the quality of this

A brief list of Sherlock Holmes’ admirable qualities (personality edition)

  • He always does what he believes to be right and refuses to be held back from that
  • Brave like whoa
  • When he realizes he’s hurt someone, he apologizes (he just doesn’t expect other people to care about what he says/thinks, so often doesn’t realize that saying/doing something will be hurtful) and sincerely tries to better himself
  • Dedicated his life to fighting evil and stopping crime
  • Always trying to entertain himself and have a good time (which isn’t necessarily a virtue but I love ppl like that irl and I am one myself)
  • Incredibly resilient
  • Selfless (apart from dedicating himself to fighting crime, often at the expense of his personal safety and comfort, he spends a good amount of his time looking after John’s safety, happiness, comfort, and general well-being)
  • Extremely compassionate and soft-hearted (seriously the reason he holds ppl at arm’s length is because he cares SO MUCH ABOUT EVERYBODY)
