Sometimes, yes. But not often. Not anymore.
To care — that is an enormous risk. To care is to put yourself in a position of vulnerability, to increase greatly the possibility of pain or betrayal. Sentiment clouds logic, love impedes judgment, and heart will always win the battle with head, if you give it the chance.
So don’t. Perhaps there is something wrong with us. But whatever it may be, we are better off with it than without it.
The condensed, visual version of Mycroft Holmes’ psychological profile. Click for hi-res.
After much procrastination, I have finally completed his profile. It is now gracing the sidebar of my blog.
Read if convenient.
If inconvenient, read anyway.
And remember to give feedback.
I can’t believe I never gave that quote much thought until now, considering how revealing that one quip is.
The question is, did Sherlock only say that because Mycroft had always behaved strictly and bossily with him, or did he say that because of the actual absence of his mother or father, meaning that Mycroft was his primary parent figure in childhood?
Psychologically, this would mean a lot. And it would have a large impact on his personality and lifestyle as an adult.
Just some speculation.
I’ll get started on Mycroft, and when I’m done analyzing him I’ll have all the major characters’ profiles on the sidebar.
I do take submissions, but if you submit a confession, make sure it’s from the point of view of one of those characters. And I suggest reading the profiles before creating the confession to see if it matches that particular character’s profile.
Anyways, if you have any questions or if you want to bitch about my font, simply inquire within.
