Anonymous: Would you ever consider doing a BBC Sherlock Graphic?

Tough question anon - but I’m afraid the answer is no.

I watched the first season of Sherlock when it first aired and I fucking loved it. Murder mysteries was all I ever watched when I was a kid and Sherlock was a treat. I loved how it was shot, the mysteries were complex, they had a great detective with a great skill to carry us through it (and it was different from other classics like Marple and Poirot, in that it had a city setting not a country one - and that really gave it it’s own identity) - I was instantly in love with Sherlock and was convinced it would become a murder mystery classic and would be a definitive staple in crime television.

However, when I watched season two, I was bitterly disappointed. I won’t even get into the details but overall, the mysteries became more ridiculous, the main character regressed, the story lines and humour became more childish and seemed to be pandering to their fanbase and all of this was added to cliffhangers with poor resolutions and some casual misogyny on the side. Like a lot of people, I find Steven Moffat’s douchebaggery quite distracting and it becomes harder and harder to get invested in the story and characters.

I watched the first two episodes of season 3 and if someone told me it was a parody, I would have believed them.

So all in all - I loved Sherlock and it let me down and became something quite embarrassing in my opinion. Even though there are parts of the first season that I adore, the downfall of the show is just so fresh in my mind that I don’t think I could ever make a graphic about it.

Yeah, but I just use it to store some pictures and look at others. I don’t really use it as a social network. It’s cassiusviolet if any mutuals want to know. (But again, I don’t really use it)

Anonymous: What are you reading at the moment?

I am currently reading The Little Friend by Donna Tartt and True Grit by Charles Portis. 

I am preferring The Little Friend way more that The Secret History - which I found to be beautifully written but empty in substance and lacking in any real tension or conflict. I can’t get invested in a story where the characters are more descriptions than actual characters. (Sorry to all it’s fans out there). 

And True Grit is badass.
