I’m reading the murder on the orient express and I must say that after a brief period of consideration I have concluded that, between Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, Holmes is far superior as a detective. Poirot seems quite sloppy in his casual deductions, if you can call them that, in that he looks at some woman and thinks “yeah, she looks like she could be a maid. She’s probably a maid.” Holmes, on the other hand wouldn’t just guess her occupation but instead deduce it properly by noticing telling clues not just thinking that she looks like she COULD be a maid. I’m just saying… Okay, rant over. I haven’t finished the book yet, there might still be time for Poirot to dazzle me with some brilliant deductions.
On second thought writing “Sherlock Holmes is one of the most beloved fictional characters ever created, second only to God” in my assignment might be a tad insensitive…
Doesn’t know the earth goes around the sun
Knows the plot of Hansel and Gretel by heart
I’m done! I’m done! I’ve been writing/procrastinating on this bloody story for months, not completing it mainly because it’s schoolwork and I had so much time, I mean come on I could’ve written it in two weeks had I actually tried, but it’s finally DONE!
It’s a project I could do basically anything with, so I chose to write Sherlock Holmes fanfiction, ACD style. I wrote a Sherlock Holmes mystery. Have you any idea how annoying it is to try and make a murder hard for the reader to solve when you know exactly what happened, and to make it interesting and complicated enough to be worthy of the atention of Sherlock Holmes? It’s hard, ok?
I’d love to get some constructive feedback on it if someone would like to read it… It’s only eleven pages long.
Am writing a Sherlock Holmes story for school (classic style, not modern), and I find myself not struggling the most with clues and deductions as I expected, but rather with the difficulties of keeping the levels of gayness to reasonable proportions. The thing is that it’s not hard because I happen to ship Johnlock, it’s because the original stories are so gay it hurts and I don’t know if my teacher knows that or if she will just think that I’m insane.
Wow, I’m so fucking bad at typing. I’m writing a Sherlock Holmes story and I seriously can’t spell Holmes right. Everytime it just ends up like “Holes smiled coolly” or “replied Homes”.
