I seem to be developing something of a fangirl-crush on Victor Trevor. I blame [ profile] ladylovelace.

All right, so it might have been I who suggested we should RP a pre-slashy farce about Holmes thinking romantic friendships are common friendships, because Victor told him so, and Watson flips out a bit. Only, then things got melodramatic and we decided to bring Trevor back from Terai America and after enough overacting and drama to make a Victorian roll her eyes, we ended up with all three of them living in a polyamorous relationship, where Trevor and Watson have sex while Holmes doesn’t, because Holmes is emotionally still a teenager.

… I don’t even like OT3s.

What I do like is Oxbridge romances, though. Ah, Charles Ryder/Sebastian Flyte, Maurice Hall/Clive Durham… ♥ I blame the atmosphere of those universities; it’s so terribly romantic. Yes, indeed, that is the reason why I ship Holmes/Trevor so much. That and the fact that Trevor owns a dog, because everything is automatically better with dogs.

(For those of you who are familiar with the radioverse: have you listened to A Study in Scarlet yet? Because according to this ‘verse, the reason Watson gave his bull-pup away (to Stamford, actually) was due to the fact that the pup wouldn’t stop attacking Holmes’ ankles. Sound familiar? ♥)

I feel like I am being blamed unfairly, here.

Does it help if I point out that I am developing a similar crush on the bastard? To the point where I want to write fic. FFFF I have a secondary character problem and you are an enabler.

I don’t even like OT3s.
I call shenanigans.

Aaaand I think most of the over-acting went on while Trevor was dressed like a girl. And he started it. :P

Poor Beecher. He sounded like such a nice puppy.

You are never blamed unfairly. You call me an enabler? Pshaw!

Do it. Do iiiiiit. I dare you to. And then we can compare our fics and fangirl pathetically and we can nit-pick all the scenarios and motifs we stole from Maurice and Brideshead Revisited. It will be glorious. ♥

I think our RP is pretty melodramatic and over-the-top. But it's so fun to play, so who cares if it's melodramatic?

Actually, I think it's awesome that Beecher was kicked out, because that gives us the proof we need to establish, once and for all, that Holmes/Adler isn't canon. Because (in radioverse) we see that Holmes only forms emotional connections with people who have dogs which gnaw on his ankles. Was an ankle-biting dog present in SCAN? I think not. Thus, Holmes/Adler is not canon.
(Oh, shut up. This isn't the strangest theory in the Holmsian fandom, not by a long shot.)

Pathetic fangirling is the best kind. It's nice to have someone you can be a complete and total dork with, knowing all the while that they are just as bad. I note that you have discovered my secret weakness - the inability to back down from a dare. Consider yourself on.

I actually like that Watson got rid of the dog for the comfort of a man he'd only been living with for a few weeks. He was clearly enamoured from the beginning. And I think that Watson making a deliberate "Holmes and Irene were not shagging" statement proves that fairly well. (I tend to think that "John, I'm only dancing" is the Holmes/Adler song).

(No, I think the "strangest theory" award has to go to the "Holmes was disguised as a horse in STUD" one. Because I think it would be fairly easy to tell the difference between a pantomime horse and a real one).

Exactly. ♥
All right then! ::gets pens and paper and gets going::

He was clearly enamoured from the beginning.
What gave him away? :P Oh, the first part of STUD is such a favourite of mine. Watson is such a fangirl, and Holmes is such a tease, and they're so obsessed with each other from the very beginning. (Muma and I sometimes listen to the plays when we play Yatzy, and her main comment on both STUD and LION was "Damn, won't they ever quit squabbling? :/" Because she clearly doesn't get that the squabbling is the best part.)

(NOOOO. Cecilia, I beg of you, do not mention the horses! Thank you for giving me that mental image again. D:)

If I weren't so flattered, I'd make a snarky remark right now. ♥

I highly approve of your fangirl-crush, indeed I think I share it;) I love any half-way realistic back-story for Holmes, and his years at college are particularly fascinating to read about. There are so many intriguing possibilities with Victor Trevor. Come on, Holmes' one and only college friend who invites him to spend a month in his house over summer, a visit which ends rather abruptly...? Very suggestive;)

I give you all the credit of making me listen to the radio-plays - I've never liked the genre, but they are so adorable! Bert Coules' invented dialogue is really good, and the performances are excellent. I've taken to listening to one or two episodes before going to bed most nights:) I could have done without the elaborate back-story he gave Culverton Smith and his nephew though...
