Do you ship Mycroft with anyone particularly? Love the blog BTW 😊
Well, it’s obvious that a man of Mycroft’s stature could be shipped with many of the characters from the show barring just a few based on these simple rules:
1) they never met each other/never existed in their timelines
2) they hate each other and I mean REALLY despise one another to the point where they’d kill each other on sight if they could.
3) there’s no way in hell its going to happen because its morally wrong or gross.
Anyway my Mycroft ships within the fandom is as follows:
Love the ship, I like how most authors integrate Greg in either earlier in their lives to make them more like friends and the development that it gives them both. The fact that Mycroft can in more than one way affect Greg’s job and how Greg can get Mycroft to care while giving the space to do so is a wonderful way to make the ship a great one.
Oh baby, after Greg Molly was someone I was hoping that might give up on Sherlock and choose the better brother. After Greg Molly is my second favorite pairing with Mycroft because not only does she deal with Mycroft having him date her would help Molly grow a spine to stand up to him more often while having plenty of ammunition to gross Sherlock out into doing what she says. Like with Greg I would assume that Molly would give Mycroft that opportunity to feel again and there is the added bonus of a possible Holmes child to come out of it. Sadly I don’t see too many of these but for the few that I’m hording they are my little gems.
Oddly enough after Greg there are more of this pairing than anything else. I think its fair to say that almost everyone on the show is smitten by John in one way or another so putting him with Mycroft who would value him just as much as Sherlock would be good. Same with Greg and Molly John would be someone that would bring Mycroft back down to earth and make him more ‘human’ even when he doesn’t want to be. There too would be the added bonus of ‘shut up I’m fucking your brother you twat’ that would have Sherlock gagging but it would be all in good fun.
NO. I do not ship this at all HOWEVER you are free to ship it without getting hate mail, personal attacks or the like because they are fictional beings and shipping it does not equate to condoning incest or pedophilia. Fiction is not reality no matter how addled your creative mind may be.
Very plausible ship and shrouded in mystery.They work well together sometimes without words and trust each other without question. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did turn out to be together but like anything Mark Gatiss produces for the show I will welcome it with open arms and as gospel.
Now the only time I can see this ship ever sailing is if he needed her to play his wife through some contract marriage because while Irene loves an intelligent mind she also wants a pretty package. If she was truly all about the mind she would’ve come for Mycroft but instead she sticks to Sherlock. I really don’t see how she would take to him or vice versa (as Mycroft doesn’t seem too pleased with his first impressions of Irene) but that’s what fan fiction is for! Explaining shipping and doing so with reckless abandon!
This I would see as a one sided thing on Jim’s part as if Mycroft isn’t interested in criminals especially ones around Sherlock’s age. Don’t get me wrong I’ve come across some great ones where Jim was using Sherlock to get Mycroft’s attentions but seeing them as a working ship? Eh, not too sure but its always fun to read and see what twisted things Jim will do to get to Mycroft.
Strange ship but like with the first 3 it does bring about some interesting changes for the other characters involved. Sally would have to be nicer to Sherlock and vice versa, better funding for the police and the Christmas Dinner-those are going to be a nightmare but I would watch every second of it.
Regardless of my opinions on these ships in question shouldn’t discourage anyone from shipping whomever they like because its all just fiction. This literally hurts no one and its fun. If you find a ship that you don’t like then ignore it and you do you without trying to drag the other one through the mud because that’s petty as fuck and uncalled for.
Just SHIP EVERYTHING.
