    I mean the biochemical processes Smile Sherlock is 'scalpel', an instrument for precision, means his investigation goes deeper than laymen's. Ordinary people might focused on what their eyes can see from the outside but Sherlock, he is a certified chemist whose career choice also making use of forensic and criminology knowledge.

    Do you know that slow-acting poison would be embedded in various tissues of the victim and might survive even centuries after their death?

    I'm not saying it won't be there, but I think it would be extremely difficult to find, isolate, and identify it. I think the poison would have to be Sherlock knows is very deadly, but hard to associate to where it came from or how it was ingested.

    Of my own creation. To my knowledge, no such poison actually exists.

    ..... Talk with Sherlock's player, how far he will bring the investigation into. However, if you involve Mycroft, be aware that I am fully capable of analyzing it down to the molecular level.

    The standard question, how far are you willing to go in the matter of 'love and deceit'?

    I am willing to go as far as it gets as long as it aids in the plot.

    Guess he is not a round-the-clock roleplayer, lol. Five AM is a good time to enjoy the morning crisp air. Wink

    I would be an around-the-clock roleplayer if I didn't have to sleep in order to do well in school. During weekends, I am, though.

    Hm. How about you tell me how Mycroft will be played? Is he much different from BBC's version?

    More active than BBC version. Ambitious, forceful, egotistical, adaptable, calculating, strategic, and scored quite high on the infamous Dark Triad. It is a mistake if thinking that beneath the exterior there is a fluffy core. He might have sentimental streak but it is limited to very few. On the overall, there is layers of ice under the polite smile. Generally calm until severely provoked.

    Ooh, that's interesting. I've always been intrigued by Mycroft. He's far too underrated, in my opinion.

    My favorite characters are Moriarty and Mycroft, so I thought it would be an appropriate username.

    I see...

    To follow your example (Katrina Greene) - he doesn't do romance but taking care of 'the itch that demand to be scratches' when he have time and inclination for it. Mostly go for female but had a few discreet liaison with males. Enjoy the challenges, the battle of wits and repartee that come with his role. Exceptional self-control, head over heart, appreciate physical beauty but it is seduction of the mind that have chance to become more than just one night stand, casual romp beneath the sheets.

    That reminds me of the scene in Buckingham Palace where Sherlock says that sex doesn't alarm him, to which Mycroft replies with, "How would you know?"

    The Iceman and The Virgin. I always on mind that the nicknames are not only about sexual experience but also about their skills & attitude about cloak & dagger, which is also Moriarty's game.

    That's true. I've never thought of it that way, though.

    I have an idea. So that we have an idea of what our characters are like, how about we prepare a sample of how we'd typically roleplay?

    Good idea. My samples already on this forum, the Slash section. However, none of them is accurate representative of the Mycroft that will show up on our game. They all have exaggerated traits that were made that way to suit the game. How about you choose a situation then we both write as our characters.

    I just took a look, and I have to say I really like your writing style.

    Hm, a scenario...how about just having alone time to think about the day's events? Nothing else comes to mind, lol.

    You mean Mycroft checking emails, chatting with 'cousins across the pond' and the likes? He is that busy, always on call with erratic schedule and down time usually means sleeping on planes / cars. Spending time alone at home is a rare luxury.

    He turned a page casually, engrossed on the novel. Historical stories is his guilty pleasure, he found the intricate storylines fascinating. From farmers to leaders to soldiers on the battlefield, their struggles keep him anchored to the concerns of ordinary people.

    On a small side table, four different mobiles laid side by side. He doesn't expect a call but the world doesn't stop turning just because he decide to have some time for relaxation. Tomorrow is another day and his service would be on high demand as usual but now he is simply a man who enjoys a good time.
