It struck me as odd that Within the Narrative is tagged with both “Tragedy” and “Comedy” when it is a pretty heavy story (so far), focusing around Sherlock’s pining over John, Mycroft’s death, John’s marriage problems, the return of Moriarty… it could barely be considered a comedy.
So then @jenna221b had to go and point out that The Adventure of the Three Garridebs starts out like this:
“It may have been a comedy, or it may have been a tragedy. It cost one man his reason, it cost me a blood-letting, and it cost yet another man the penalties of the law. Yet there was certainly an element of comedy. Well, you shall judge for yourselves.“
and suddenly the description for it, “about the stuff between the lines”, now makes so much more sense.
I just needed you all to know that this person is unbelievably clever and embedded so deep in The Conspiracy that they couldn’t possibly be anyone other than One of Us, which we know they are not.
