Sherlock and The Social Dots

I keep seeing people continue to fight over Sherlock and the meaning of Eurus’ tests so I wanted to write a little thing on it.  I’m doing this with a wrist brace on and heinous fibro-turd pain, so forgive any misspellings.  

The way I have personally absorbed Sherlock and the meaning of Eurus’s tests is that it’s about Sherlock as an empty person.  He is an incomplete picture until he begins connecting the dots that are his social connections and even more importantly, his emotions.  Let’s look at his relationships one by one and I’ll explain.

Dot 1: Greg Lestrade

  Lestrade represents respect for authority.  In fact, he is the only real authority figure in the series.  He’s Sherlock’s ‘boss’ in a way.  Bosses need people they employ to be reliable, respectful, and trustworthy.  Sherlock treating his boss/mentor like crap, making fun of his intelligence and skirting around him at every chance he gets is terribly disrespectful.  Sherlock is childish and arrogant and disregards Lestrade in most cases, even refusing to acknowledge his name.  We’ve all had those bosses when we were young that we didn’t respect, so we act like spoiled brats about it even though those people probably have way more experience than we do.  They have earned their position via the rout of hard work and being reliable and respectful.  By the end of the series, however, Sherlock shows us he has resolved the issue of his respect for Lestrade by politely asking him, by name, a first for the entire series, to please take care of his brother.  Sherlock is no longer a bratty child and he has connected the social dot of respect.

Dot 2: John Watson

John represents friendship, pure and simple.  John is literally the “replacement” for Victor, Sherlock’s best friend who was killed when he was very, very little. That left Sherlock as the empty shell that we see at the start of the series.  The loss of his friend at such a young age meant that he essentially shut down the part of him that he felt could even have friends.  He rejected the idea of personal connections with other people entirely, so that he wouldn’t suffer loss again.  John, through all their trials and tragedies, has now healed that wound for Sherlock.  Even more, John as Sherlock’s friend, has helped him connect all the other dots.  He walked with him step by step to do it.  Without John’s companionship, Sherlock would still be empty.  John’s maturity helped Sherlock grow up and be the man he was supposed to be, had he not suffered such a terribly traumatic event in his youth.

One other thing John represents is family, brotherhood to be specific.  Mycroft was very cold to Sherlock in their youth, even though it’s obvious it wasn’t always that way.  In the family videos we are shown, Sherlock absolutely loves his brother.  It isn’t until later, after Victor, that he feels so alone.  It’s obvious Sherlock loved Victor just like a brother, like the brother he really needed but was taken from him.  Sherlock says John is “family” in TFP, and he means it.  It also shows just how much emotion Sherlock has.  His love is that strong. His friend was his brother, a part of his own blood, even if they wren’t born as brothers.

Dot 3: Mrs. Hudson

Mrs Hudson represents a parent’s love.  It’s clear that Sherlock has a very strained relationship with his parents. He doesn’t hate them, but he doesn’t appear to believe that they care for him.  They’re not around when he is still basically a child in a grown man’s body.  He has cut them off in his mind.  Maybe they weren’t there for him in the past so he continues to believe they’re not there for him now.  Meanwhile, Mrs. Hudson dotes on Sherlock, brings him tea and food and generally ‘takes care’ of him.  She’s kind but not a pushover.  She’s also led a life that is about as tumultuous as you can get, which I think appeals to Sherlock.  He always surrounds himself with people who aren’t “regular” people.  Mrs. Hudson holds enough action and adventure in her life that she appeals to Sherlock, and she is also loving and sweet to boot.  Mrs. Hudson is the connected parental dot for Sherlock.

Dot 4: Irene Adler

Irene Adler represents sexuality.  What’s even better is that Irene represents fluid sexuality, and more importantly, the rejection of labels.  Regardless of how everyone has interpreted this, when you get down to the simplicity of it, it is simply about rejection of boxing one’s self in.  Sherlock’s box was his own making, his image as the “higher power” that Irene pointed out.  Irene’s own box was her sexuality.  Both of these people had discovered during the episode that their boxes weren’t taped shut all the way.  There was wiggle room.  Back to the sexuality part, Irene awakened Sherlock sexually.  The entirety of ASIB was loaded with sexuality, from Sherlock being naked and looking extraordinarily dashing, to the very naked Irene appearing to completely disrupt his logical thinking power.  It’s as close to canon as one can get that Sherlock did sleep with Irene after Karachi (judging by Eurus’s reaction to his violin song for her).  Sex and intimacy was something Sherlock had very much refrained from in his life and Irene connected that dot for him.  

Dot 5: Molly Hooper

Molly represents authentic love, or “romantic entanglement” as Sherlock puts it.  Everything about Molly and Sherlock’s interaction falls in line with how everyday romantic relationships blossom.  They began just like kids, with Molly having a crush and Sherlock being a jerk to her, ignoring her, or thwarting her attempts to date other men. As they grow together, they begin to close the gap between them.  Molly earns Sherlock’s complete trust, which was monumentally difficult for her to do considering Sherlock’s fear of connecting with people too closely.  Molly loves Sherlock through his best times and his worst times, unconditionally, even though he doesn’t appear to return her feelings.  From small things we’re shown, however, it feels as if Sherlock does feel something for Molly, but he has compartmentalized it and buried it as deep as he can underground out of fear.  Eurus’s test is what forced Sherlock to dig up that box, that box he’d put his heart in and covered it underneath the earth.  Eurus forces that box open, and connects the dot of romantic love for Sherlock.

Dot 6: Mary Watson

Mary represents, I think, coming to terms with one’s self, and the different shades of the self.  She represents acceptance.  Mary connected with and accepted Sherlock instantly because they were the same.  They both came from dangerous lives, they are both morally gray, and they both have a need to be accepted for who they are, the good and the bad.  Mary was in many ways, a reflection of Sherlock’s own duality.  I think Mary made him question things about himself (no not sexually), and I think she also taught him how much he is worth as a person.  She showed him that even though you are this person you’ve constructed out of your own pain, you don’t have to live just as that person.  You can have anything you desire and still be you.  You can live with shades of yourself, and those around you who truly love you will accept you as that.  They will love you for the good that you are, and forgive you for the bad that you are.  Mary connected the dots of acceptance for Sherlock.

Dot 7: Jim Moriarty

Jim represented fear.  He represented who Sherlock would have been, had he not had some form of love and connection in his life.  He was a madman, a true sociopath.  He showed Sherlock what it really would be like if he was who he said he was. We learn very quickly, however, what Moriarty already knew.  Sherlock can never be like him because he does have a huge capacity for love.  He’s hidden it, denied it, but it is there.  Anywhere Moriarty appeared, it caused great fear in Sherlock.  Even after his death, Moriarty was in Sherlock’s mind, chained up in a padded room like a some kind of caged monster.  As much as Sherlock tried to be like him, he really feared becoming that.  He also feared that Moriarty would be the undoing of his friends and family, forever a threat to their lives.  Moriarty was an endless threat to Sherlock, an endless fear of madness and murder.  Jim connected the dot of fear, true fear, for Sherlock.

Dot 8: Mycroft Holmes

I admit this one’s tough. I feel Mycroft represents weakness.  For all the power Mycroft wields in the government, he’s very fearful of being out in the world.  He keeps people as distant as he can manage and still be a part of  functioning society.  He also did a terrible thing and locked up his little sister and lied to his family about it because he feared confronting it.  All along in the series, we see Mycroft chastise Sherlock for things like having friends, being close to people, tangling with psychopaths, etc.  Mycroft is a very soft, fearful person, which makes his nickname The Ice Man sort of ironic.  Its not that he doesn’t care, he’s just far too soft to care.  We see his softness demonstrated with Sherlock, time and time again.  He cares so much for his little brother and fears so much for him that he constantly keeps watch on him.  Mycroft also tried to help Sherlock by proxy, using John as a means to help Sherlock heal his wounds.  In the end, Sherlock comes to realize his brother isn’t a bad person, and that he loves him deeply.  In fact, he loves his little brother enough to die for him so that he won’t be left like he was as a child, without his best friend.  I think Mycroft regrets being as weak as he is, because he didn’t do more to help his siblings. It just required too much care, and he wasn’t able to fulfill that.  In the end, it is Sherlock who is the stronger of them, and he is stronger because of his connected dots.  The last dot is connect by Mycroft, and that is Sherlock understanding that he is capable of protecting the weak, that he is stronger thanks to his mind, heart, and soul now being complete.

That’s about all.  I only included the major characters here, the ones we see almost every episode.  I’ve already talked a bit about how Eurus forces Sherlock to confront trauma, so she represents that last little bit which Sherlock needs to connect everything together.  She wasn’t a dot, so much as the one who helped him see the entire picture he’d made.  Also, Rosie helps Sherlock in her own way, as Sherlock now has this capacity to care for the smallest of people: children.  Rosie is a teeny, tiny, adorable dot.

I mostly wrote this because I had wanted to for a while, but also because some people are still arguing about the I Love You scene.  They’re missing the forest in favor of the leaves.  The bigger picture is pretty clear on what everyone’s purposes were in the show, and how they affected Sherlock as a man.  To become a great man, he needed to be a complete man.  All these connected dots make him that man.  

Mycroft is insecure

A beautiful but sad moment in TEH is when Mrs Hudson interrupts the silly conversation of the Holmes brothers and says:
“He’s secretly pleased to see you, underneath all that.”
I think that in this scene Mrs Hudson outwits both brothers again and again.
And after that last spot-on observation, Sherlock looks at her lowkey impressed and remains silent. 

This means that Sherlock sees the (double) truth in her words and doesn’t deny it. 

On the other hand, Mycroft asks her with a sudden mood shift for the better : “Sorry, which of us?” to which Mrs Hudson replies: “Both of you.”

This is fantastic physical acting by Gatiss here. Mycroft tries to look indifferent and above all that, but he actually feels contentment and great curiosity. 

The fact that he, Mycroft Holmes, fails to instantly understand which one of the two Mrs Hudson meant and can’t keep himself from asking an almost childish question tells us that his insecurity about Sherlock’s feelings clouds his judgement. 

The sad thing is that, unlike Sherlock, Mycroft doesn’t know whether his young brother actually cares about him like he does. Despite all the hostility, Sherlock knows deep inside that Mycroft loves and looks after him. 

When Mrs Hudson responds “Both of you”, Sherlock turns to look at Mycroft playfully, but it is loving and affectionate. He looks at him straight in the eye, which means that he’s finally eager to become more open with his older brother and he would like it if Mycroft did this too. He’s like “See, the goldfish reads us better than we can read each other, brother mine”.

Mycroft may be able to see through Sherlock very easily, but he can’t do it when he’s personally involved. He is afraid that Sherlock truly loathes him. He fears that this is not just a childish sibling rivalry or that Sherlock never forgave him for some deed of the past. He’s very insecure and yearns for some sort of brotherly affection, so he literally clings to whatever information Mrs Hudson might give him. Does Sherlock care about him? Is the “seemingly insignificant” landlady right? Is he loved?!

Mycroft needs Sherlock just as Sherlock needs him, if not more. 

I require a hug.

Lotor and the Bad Guys

(Or, my thoughts on writing a strong villain.)

I’ve been thinking of writing a post like this for weeks now, but my hand was forced after catching up with season 3 of Voltron: Legendary Defender. This season was the strongest one in the show yet, raising the stakes and adding some interesting new concepts (like multiple realities.) 

But what really stole the narrative was Prince Lotor of the Galra Empire. Look at him. Look at this magnificent asshole.

Now before I get into it, I should state that a lot of my ideas on this have been formed by The Anatomy of Story by John Trudy, which is a superb book I’d recommend for anyone interested in story-craft. Furthermore I’m not getting into the original Voltron series, as I haven’t watched it and don’t really want to. I’m sticking to V:LD, with examples from other fandoms as well. 


Okay, let’s see. Lotor. As a villain, he immediately grabs your attention because for a start, he’s actually fabulous. Aesthetically pleasing. Beautiful hair, sharp features, dazzling smile. Lotor is supposed to be attractive. He’s created as the villain to look at. To admire. 

Then you have this great sequence where Lotor, after defeating Throk like he’s a mosquito, spares his life. You think, huh, that’s interesting. Then later in the show, Lotor orders his generals to send Throk off to some far-off Galra post, with a small grin that suggests he’s taken the revenge he sees fit for Throk’s disloyalty. 

What this suggests to me is that Lotor is interested in a kind of control that does not resort to bloodshed–not at first, anyway. Lotor likes to humiliate. It wouldn’t be enough to kill Throk if he can all but banish Throk off to some nowhere outpost. This has advantages.

a) By not killing Throk, he’s signalling to the other Galra that he, Prince Lotor, is merciful and just. He’s hitting this point harder: I don’t rule by fear, I rule by earning loyalty. After Throk surrenders and pledges his loyalty to Lotor, Lotor “forgives” him. In front of hundreds, maybe thousands, of Galra soldiers. This is a visual stunt that basically says, Prince Lotor is merciful; join him and you will be rewarded. 

b) Yet, by sending Throk off to some random outpost, he’s signalling again that, if you are disloyal, I won’t kill you, I’ll ruin you as you live. Lotor’s attack is on Throk’s legacy. The Galra, who are so obsessed with power and prestige, would find themselves destroyed if it was taken away from them. It is in direct opposition to their militaristic culture. Lotor has humiliated Throk, and that is more punishment than death. 

Furthermore, throughout the season, Lotor is a consistently active villain. I feel this was a HUGE improvement on seasons 1 and 2, where Zarkon, and the entire Galra empire, just didn’t seem like that much of a threat because all Zarkon ever did was stand there and look grumpy. He acted through his generals, which (apart from Sendak), just seem buffoonish. Zarkon is boring because he’s generically evil. Haggar, at any point in the story, seems more like its central villain because she seems genuinely interested in being villainous. I sometimes feel like you could replace Zarkon with a cardboard cut-out of Casper the Friendly Ghost and it would make no real difference to the plot. 

But Lotor. Lotor participates in his plans. In fact, he’s the most active member of his squad. He goes out there on his own to lure the paladins into dangerous terrain. 

According to The Anatomy of Story, opponents and heroes actually want the same thing, but go about obtaining the goal from different points of view. That’s where the heart of the conflict lies. In V:LD, both Voltron and the Galra empire want to influence the universe with their brand of ideology. The Galra believe in the propagation of one single ruling unit: their empire. Voltron believes in individual planetary sovereignty. It is for this goal that they compete. 

Which is why Lotor wanting to rule by creating alliances is a fascinating twist to Galra ideology, and if it works, Voltron really wouldn’t know how to cope. As the show stressed, Voltron’s forces are stretched thin, and they struggle to keep the promises they made. Lotor, with the full strength of the Galra empire behind him, has no such worries. Many planets would align with the Galra under “alliances” if Lotor promised them basic freedoms (i.e: ruling by creating a sense of loyalty, rather than fear.)

What also interested me was that Lotor is a thinking villain. He has thoughts and ideas that go beyond “I’M EVIL HAR HAR”. He understands things like loyalty, he recognises the paladins’ disharmony, his orders are very clearly focused on gathering intelligence about the enemy. He hasn’t actually launched open attack on Voltron, he’s too smart. 

His actions prompt the paladins to form Voltron and act like a team. This is what a villain is supposed to do: the challenges they pose to the hero should change the heroes in some way, either by making them stronger or weaker. Once Lotor realises Voltron is back, he knows he can’t win until he creates an object strong enough to counter Voltron. He does not want to attack Voltron until he is sure he has the upper hand. This is a smart villain. This is a villain I want to root for, because he knows what he’s doing, and he enjoys what he’s doing. It’s brilliant. 

Finally, I think Lotor succeeds in the most important thing a villain should be good at. The bad guy should hit the heroes right where they’re at their weakest.

For examples of this, let’s look at Avatar: The Last Airbender. Azula is Zuko’s foil and ultimately the villain he has to defeat to overcome his own feelings of insecurity, rage, and failure. She knows exactly what he wants: his father’s love. Or really, any kind of love. She uses Mai to lure Zuko to her side. Read Azula’s wiki page and you’ll see how she’s obsessed with being more powerful, more adored than Zuko. Even in post-series storylines, her sole focus is trying to humiliate Zuko. 

And Azula gets to Zuko.  He resents her, he feels inferior to her, there’s a part of him that wishes he could be like her. He believes if he catches the Avatar, his father will love him like he loves Azula

In the end, Azula was Zuko’s villain to defeat. 

Another great example is Sherlock and Moriarty in BBC’s Sherlock.

Sherlock and Moriarty are exactly alike except for one thing. Moriarty is pure rationale that bars on madness. Sherlock is smart, yes, but he is also emotional. He has made emotional ties with John, with Mrs Hudson, even with his brother, Mycroft. Moriarty uses the people Sherlock loves to manipulate him, to get the better of him. The whole climax where Sherlock jumps to his (supposed) death is because he’s trying to protect John. And in fact, it is Sherlock’s emotional ties–with Molly, in particular–that save his life. Without Molly’s help, it simply wouldn’t have worked.

Lotor from V:LD does a similar thing, which is especially obvious in the episode “Hole in the Sky”, where Lotor wants Voltron to retrieve the comet. It would not have worked if Lotor hadn’t understood that Allura would do anything to help Alteans, being as her race is all but extinct. He also knows that Voltron is all about helping the little guy, they answer distress signals all the time. 

“If Voltron disappears from our world, then we win. If they make it out with the comet, we’ll take it from them. It’s a win either way.” –Lotor. 

Lotor is literally assuming none of the risk but reaping all of the rewards because he has hit the paladins exactly where he knew they were weakest. “Thank you for answering my distress signal, Voltron,” he says as he flies off with the comet. What the heroes see as their strengths: in this case, Voltron being a bunch of do-gooders (which was cemented by Allura’s need for wanting to find Alteans), Lotor sees as an opportunity.

Another great fandom where the villain used this same technique to attack the hero? Harry Potter, book 5! Voldemort makes Harry think he’s seeing visions of Sirius in pain, and that’s how he lures Harry to the Department of Mysteries, which ultimately leads to Sirius dying.

Tl;dr: Good villains all have a couple of similar qualities:

1) They are active villains. They go after what they want. Their goals are actually the same as the hero’s, but they approach it from a different angle. The opposition between hero and villain comes because they want the same thing.

2) Good villains should be able to attack the hero at their weakest point, or put another way, a good villain should be able to use a hero’s greatest quality against them.

Mycroft and Sherlock had a little brother. A VERY little brother, called Y/N. You were a surprise on the Holmes family, but loved all the same. You were 2 and still mastering walking, but you didn’t mind being carried. Also you’re two older brothers were very protective of you since you were so little and you also had trouble hearing. You got checked up at the hospital and they found out you had lost most of your hearing, but since you were so young, you needed special made hearing aids, and since yours were broken you were waiting for your new ones to arrive.

Your parents had left you in the care of your eldest brother Mycroft for a few weeks while they went on a cruise. Unfortunately he had to leave the country for the weekend, so he had no choice but to leave you with Sherlock.

The Hudson Brothers - So You Are A Star (1974)

Bill Hudson was Goldie Hawn’s husband, and thus, Kate Hudson’s father.  As a kid, I remember the Hudson Brothers had a kinda dumb variety show on TV, but they were actually a pretty decent power pop group sounding not a million miles away from Badfinger, and they had a minor hit with this song. 

Amnesia (Sherlock x Reader)

Warning: Angst up the ass. Character death and feels. Yeah that it 

I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted

I thought about our last kiss, how it felt the way you tasted

And even though your friends tell me you’re doing fine

You were racing Sherlock back to the flat.  Sherlock (a very drunk one) was stumbling but close behind.

“(Y/n)!!! You’re cheating!!! This coat is slowing me down!!!” His words were slurred and some were stuttered.

You ignored him and continued running until you bumped into the door of 221B.  You fell back and into Sherlock’s arms. A giggle ripped through the two of you “I will catch you when you fall!” Sang the detective from the top of his lungs.

Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he’s right beside you?
When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?
Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?
‘Cause I’m not fine at all

It was movie night with Mrs. Hudson, John, and Sherlock. The movie of choice was Titanic and sniffles were sound through the room. You and Mrs. Hudson were holding napkins to your noses and eyes.  Sherlock was correcting information and John was throwing popcorn at the black haired man when he interrupted the movie.

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish, we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape
'Cause I’m not fine at all

It happened on the way to your job at Scotland Yard.  You felt as if someone was following you but shrugged off the feeling.  A little voice in the back of your head was warning you.  It was words of advice from Sherlock you had received when you first met him. “Always trust your instincts.  If you feel someone watching you someone is most likely watching you.” When you decided to look behind you a rag was placed over your mouth.  Slowly the chemical on the rag began to render you unconscious.

The pictures that you sent me they’re still living in my phone
I’ll admit I like to see them, I’ll admit I feel alone
And all my friends keep asking why I’m not around
It hurts to know you’re happy, yeah, it hurts that you’ve moved on
It’s hard to hear your name when I haven’t seen you in so long

You prayed for Sherlock to find you but your kidnapper made it seem as if it would never happen.  Relentless comments about how he did find you yet filled your brain, while cuts and bruises filled your skin.  After a week of torment, Sherlock found you with blood in your hair and your eyes shut.

“(Y/N)? (Y/N)!!! Wake up, please.  Princess, please wake up!”

A red light appeared in your head and a bullet shot through the air. A letter fell next to the chair and a sobbing Sherlock.  The paper read “Moriarty sends his regards.”

It’s like we never happened, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?
'Cause I’m not fine at all
I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish, we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

Your funeral was quite except for the sobs of those who attended. Lestrade was like a father to you; John was like a brother; Mrs. Hudson a mother; Molly was your best friend and she couldn’t speak, just cry, And Sherlock was standing there. He lost the love of his life after six months of fighting. Snow fell around the gathering and not a word was spoken.

If today I woke up with you right beside me
Like all of this was just some twisted dream
I’d hold you closer than I ever did before
And you’d never slip away
And you’d never hear me say

The consulting detective stopped playing the stringed instrument and focused on the mantel above a roaring fire. A black velvet box laid untouched for many months. Inside was a Dimond ring which was supposed to be your engagement ring.  Unfortunately, you passed before Sherlock could propose. Salty tears fell and a ball of rage grew in Sherlock.

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish, we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape
'Cause I’m not fine at all

No, I’m really not fine at all
Tell me this is just a dream
'Cause I’m really not fine at all

Sherlock threw the violin into the fireplace.  The sound of fire crackling at the new fuel filled the air.  No matter how hard he tried Sherlock wouldn’t be able to forget you. One thing he knew for sure, Moriarty was going to pay and Sherlock was going to make sure it would happen. Personally.

You all deserve better for a character you’ve all grown to love, respect and believe in more than anything. I see that you all feel so alone, sad and angry just as he seems but remember this…Kurt Hummel did have at least one friend in the end of it all. A terrible tragedy took that special friend away forever but never forget Finn Hudson was his friend and he had his back til the very end and now he is watching over his little brother. 

Here’s one last Furt hug from me to you.
