    Wanted, fellow roleplayer with taste for battle of wits

    As the title of this thread suggested, I am searching for those who loves power play. Smile It could be in political arena that span nations or as a fellow roleplayer at the past had suggested, between two or more people who have taste for messing with other people's mind in non-catty (reads, queen bee) ways. Irene Adler, Lady Smallwood and Jim Moriarty came to mind but who knows if you can infuse that spark of 'bloodlust' into a character like Sally Donovan or Anthea. Smile

    I'm practically open for any idea at the moment Smile I'm very happy to have another thread with Andrew Holmes, if you're up for that? Though, feel free to throw me an idea if one springs to mind!

    Mr. Holmes,

    I believe that power games over where I have hidden the cake tin are entirely unnecessary.

    Sir,

    Your physician encourages further exercise. I suggest bending and stretching to locate said tin. If you do locate it, save me a slice.

    Respectfully, Sir, may I remind you that between Mrs. Dudley and myself, a period of six months, you went through exactly 12 assistants, each of which you pronounced inadequate and untrainable?

    If my first two weeks were any indication, firing me does not stick. [Swore she was fired at the end of each and every day during that time. After all, she was pulled from the secretarial pool and thrown into the deep end.]

    Blasted woman! She is indeed the best of the lot but it doesn't mean she can take away a little slice of heaven that make hours of fixing other people's asinine problems bearable. He replied mulishly.

    Anthea,

    You are supposed to work for me. Tell me if hiding something that vital for the continuation of this empire is not tantamount with treason.

    MH


    ((I take it that this A is not a trained Intelligence Officer masquerading as an executive assistant instead of an actual PA. Is the one in the Reincarnated thread the same? ))

    [ooc: Anthea aka Anna, is a trained intelligence officer, but that is not how she began. She is still Mycroft's assistant and friend (as much as he allows) and is most likely his left arm, but she is not his secretary/PA anymore.]

    Sir,

    This empire was not built on cake. Tea I will give you.

    A

    p.s. speaking of treason, will you please look at the file in your electronic inbox.

    .... He will buy another from the small bakery he frequented, and Anthea will not get any. That will teach her not to hold his cake hostage.

    Anthea,

    Tea is acceptable.

    [ooc: ha!! You'll get your cake back, just in slices with tea. She doesn't mean to starve you, just not have you eat it all in one sitting. Plum Puddings indeed.
    And yes, my Anthea is the same. She might poke him (gently) when it's just them, just like she would straighten his tie and make sure that he's perfection before going out the door. That said, she would never do any of this in public. Anthea's terribly loyal and the magic she can work with that blackberry is only limited by her wireless connection and programming. From green streetlights to just arriving elevators, Mycroft Holmes' life is terribly convenient when Anthea is around.]

    (( Thanks to you I keep snickering and giggling and thus unable to enter the more serious mode for the Reincarnated thread Laughing :p Laughing Must be hard to be a Holmes minder, both of the brothers can be handful at times. I still shudder at the memory of Mycroft in The Special. Plum pudding, yeeck! I prefer lemon - lime layer cake and so are my dogs. ))

    I loved that it was Anthea who brought out Sherlock's coat, probably all freshly cleaned and brushed, buttons all repaired. Not that she would do it herself, but she know who is the best in the business.

    I can see it now, The Care and Keeping of a Holmes, by Anna Thiel and Dr. John Watson. It would be a handbook in case the boys ever reproduced or if either of their caretakers died/left and the Holmes had to be handed off to another person.

    And only a few know about the bunker-like office. Wink

    Hehehehheheheheh... I imagine it would be hard to find people who not only can stand them in the long term but also genuinely enjoy and thrives in the partnership. Looking at the series I swear that John have the patience of a saint at times.

    The boys reproduced. o.o Through the surrogate system perhaps? I can picture Sherlock's playing with dangerous substances and Mycroft's raised by an army of nannies and tutors.

    Almost forgot. When in step by step conversation replies tends to be shorter in length but I will try to add bits and pieces to expand the description of what happened.

    Liang, Soo Lin's brother, is Zhi Zhu, The Spider.
    She sees the Spider as an evil aspect/side who 'killed' the kind person her brother once was.
