Q:Sherlock, obviously. You can choose which incarnation.
I’m playing with Elementary/Jonny Lee Miller, by the way.
- What they smell like: For some reason I keep coming up with “tobacco” even though canonically both modern Sherlocks have quit smoking. I guess it’s just ACD’s pipe smoker leaking in. Also: leather, and ink, and honeycomb - like that waxy mild honey smell - and something vaguely chemical.
- How they sleep (sleeping position, schedule, etc): Usually sitting up at like 3 in the morning, but if he’s tired and given access to a bed, sprawled and huggy and taking up the whole bed. He can fall asleep basically anywhere though. I feel like he can probably self-induce hypnosis and/or trance state, given his other interests in altered states. That’s not sleep but it’s related.
- What music they enjoy: Most kinds, but with a heavy bent towards trip-hop (as you can tell from the soundtrack) and string-heavy indie. Incredibly obnoxiously knowledgeable about classical.
- How much time they spend getting ready every morning: Not terribly long - efficient - but spends slightly longer on his wardrobe choices than you’d suspect. Tops 40 minutes though.
- Their favorite thing to collect: FACTS. Also primary source documents, from the personal epistolary sort (eg, letters to penpals) to original copies of old books and such.
- Left or right-handed: Naturally right handed, but practicedly ambidextrous and capable of several different styles of handwriting.
- Religion (if any): HAHAHA. Science, I suppose.
- Favorite sport: I think he’d be fascinated by sports that require a lot of strategy. Thus, I’m going to say (from traditional sports) probably baseball and likewise cricket, but I WANT to say that he watches football in a instinctive kid-like manner. I think Sherlock would collect sports stats just like everything else though.
- Favorite touristy thing to do when traveling (museums, local food, sightseeing, etc): Sherlock would never consider himself a ‘tourist’ — he’d acquaint himself with the area far too much beforehand — but snacking on street food would probably be a favorite.
- Favorite kind of weather: Dry and clear and just a little cool, because it’s useful for preserving scenes. Being English I assume he doesn’t love New York’s hot summers anyway.
- A weird/obscure fear they have: Losing his memory. I guess that’s not weird. I can’t think of a weird one though.
- The carnival/arcade game they always win without fail: That totally rigged one where you have to toss balls into buckets. He’d be able to figure out the angle, and more importantly he’d also know when to stop.
Leave a character in my askbox and I’ll give you a headcanon!

I spotted this awesome little meme while linksurfing around trying to find that quote about Grantaire’s dad despising him for being bad at maths. This is more fun!
Any fandom I’m even REMOTELY familiar with is open, though obviously I have some that are bigger than others.
- name: faye
- age: 27
- gender: no thanks
- birthday: july 16
- height: 5’4
- sexuality: queer is probably most accurate but i id as bisexual
- relationship/status: i have a wife-shaped person and a metamour who are both awesome. <3
- occupation: customer service/data entry essentiallyDo you have any--
- siblings: nope
- pets: two kitties, eris and orpheus
- piercings: not anymore: ears closed up
- tattoos: three, a dandelion with the word ‘persistence’ on my wrist; the words ‘this year will be better than the last’ down my spine and a butterfly on my hip. planning for more: the next will probably be a halfsleeve of death from the sandman, most likely david mack’s version.Favorite--
- movies: oh geesh. the ones i force on everyone are the crow, velvet goldmine, empire records…but i love movies so there are a lot. les mis, recently.
- foods: veggie sushi, banh mi, and cheesy comfort foods like mac and cheese.
- bands/artists: thursday, fall out boy, patrick wolf, recently bastille and bon iver…i also like a lot of music.
- things to do: write, roleplay (journal format = <3) and use tumblr? listen to music. read, which i don’t do enough of.
I’ve gotten this meme about three times now sooo…ten facts about me:
- I was born three months early. (If I had been born at the right time I would have almost definitely been a Libra.)
- My entire church choir played the children’s chorus in the local city opera’s production of La Boheme when I was ten. I loved it, except that I had to curl my hair into little sausage curls and it would not hold even with a TON of hair spray. And I also nearly fell into the pit once because the chair I had to jump up onto tipped forward (the dude who was my ‘father’ neatly grabbed me).
- I was never a member of the church that the choir sang for. (I wasn’t required to be, either.) But I did like singing there.
- I was such a musical theater geek when I was younger that when I couldn’t get the username I wanted on AOL I added “24601” to the end instead of my birth year or a random number.
- I played basketball from the time I was 8 to the time I was 13 and despite not being very good at it, I felt really good about myself and made a ton of friends and I miss it a lot.
- I named my dog Eilonwy after the princess from The Black Cauldron when I was 7.
- I am incapable of going to bed without checking at least one of my social media sites.
- I would love to be a roller derby player.
- I would love even more to write something publishable but I am deeply afraid that I’ll never finish anything because I’m too afraid they suck or because I’m so much better at creating characters than stories. I have multiple 100+ page stories that I’ve abandoned because I don’t feel good about them.
- It’s my and my wife’s ten year anniversary (of dating, not marriage :P) today - more than a third of my life!

eleven questions from discursivedisarmed
Morghan gave me questions! Same deal as last time.
first thing that pops into your head when you think of being happy? puppy pile on the foldout couch with tash and jess :) or even just all three of us curled up together doing different things: tash on her laptop, jess resting for work, me on my phone.
where do you wish you were right now? somewhere in the opposite hemisphere so it stops being dark all the time. i love chicago but i have never been as aware of my SAD as i am here. it gets dark so early here - i think it’s because we’re fairly far east in the time zone so sunset is 4:45 here while in louisville or indianapolis it’s approximately 5:45.
eleven questions from neverless-wonder
Sherlock Holmes and Charles Xavier are playing chess. Who wins? Well, knowing your opponent’s moves is important. Holmes has the element of deduction, but Xavier can read his mind. If Holmes knew he had that ability he’d probably be able to counter it, but Professor X can both telepathically camouflage (eg, make others’ perceptions appear different) and shield his thoughts so he can mislead Holmes. So, Professor X has the edge.
That said if they’re playing a fair (no telepathy) game Xavier will probably win anyway because canonically he plays more chess. So, Professor X. Is the answer. But I’d like to see the game.
- What’s your favorite boardgame? I haven’t really busted out the boardgames recently, we should while we’re visiting! But I really want to play Ticket To Ride or Settlers of Catan and even really old-school tabletop D&D type games. In terms of stuff I’ve played love things like Trivial Pursuit and Clue. I kind of hate Monopoly because it takes forever and everyone hates each other by the end.
