    Alternet Universe (of sorts)

    Post by MadMimes on Tue Jul 09, 2013 4:33 am

    I'm aware that there are probably a few ideas that might be similar to this one, but I'm gonna shoot anyone and try to get some takers.

    I was thinking that instead of a world where Sherlock Holmes was the famous detective, James Moriarty is, and Sherlock is his enemy, a psychopathic bored narrator to a couple of horrible stories and events for James. I feel it should still follow Sherlock. Molly and John (including the other more background characters) are still the same as they were before. I feel it could follow three different parts, like Sherlock, at the same time as John, ect..

    Have any ideas? Please, feel free to add on. I would want to play Molly and make her a little more of a forward character, so I'll be searching for a John, Sherlock, and possibly a Jim.

    Great! I'm glad I found a Sherlock. At this point it's mainly improve, so whatever comes up, feel free to add in whatever kinds of plot and twist you want.

    We do need a name, and a John and possible Jim. If you know of anyone, direct them this way.

    I like it. It's to the point and explains everything without describing anything. Do you want to start, or should we wait for some one else to join in? Your call.

    I agree. Lets give it a time limit... how long do you think we should wait until we start.

    How about five days? The first thing that came to my head was a week, but I was like that's way too long. Next I thought three days. Then I went in the middle.

    I like the idea. It's probably better for just five days. I have a feeling it might not even take that long. We can wait and see though.

    I think it will take too long. It's a good idea.

    Yeah. Hopefully we'll get two or more takers before the next few days are up, though. I don't want to wait that long. I'm excited about seeing what an evil Sherlock looks like, and a good Jim.

    It will be fun to play Molly while she still has a crush on Sherlock. This should prove to be a very fascinating RP.

    Well, which way pleases you more? It's up to you if you want him to be bad or good. You are more than welcome to have a say in your own character, if you'd like. I can also pick for you if you don't want to choose on your own.

    Mmm...I'd probably go for....John is good, but he still meets Sherlock and feels naturally drawn towards him, is intrigued by his intelligence and doesn't actually have any other friends in London since he got back from the army. Initially, he doesn't realise that Sherlock is a criminal, he is just impressed by his deductions and ends up tagging along. Then he gets more and more drawn into Sherlock's world and finds it impossible to back out, even though he knows it's wrong.

    I love it. Maybe Molly and John can be close friends and that's really how Molly will end up meeting Sherlock. She ends up tagging along occasionally also, and lives in apartment 221C above them.

    OK. John and Sherlock should still have met in the same way though...via an introduction through Mike Stamford. I had this crazy idea that Stamford could have taken up drug dealing instead of teaching medicine, and that's how he knows Criminal Sherlock...so when he sees John in the park and John's all like "who'd want me for a flatmate", he introduces him to Sherlock etc...

    But maybe Molly could meet whilst John was doing some work at the hospital, because he'd still be a doctor obviously, and he does locum work which means he's basically self employed, takes jobs when he pleases and fills in for people when they're sick or on maternity leave. So, he could get a few days work at St Barts, which is where he meets Molly. She's looking for a place to live and 221C is going spare, so John tells her about it and she moves in as their neighbour.

    I love this idea. I feel like we should start now, and then have Sherlock come in in a little bit. I can also play Mark I just need to get ahold of our Sherlock first and I'll PM you the rp title, okay?

    Okay, guys. Here it is. I'm going to introduce Sherlock pretty quickly, so Syd, keep your eyes open for your que. I promise It'll be obvious.
