In recompense, I award you this:
A baby Sherlock tries on his coat.
Now, apologies all in order- onto the real heart of the matter.
One of my favorite stories, A Study In Scarlet begins John Watson and Sherlock Holmes' time together, and what a wondrous beginning it is. Riddled with adventure and daring-do, this tale is a classic.
It not only establishes who our set of protagonists will be, but how they view each other.
Here are some questions I hope will metaphorically tickle your fancy and begin some discussion.
1) What is Watson's first impression of Holmes? How is it formed, and how (and by whom) is it influenced?
2) What is Holmes' first impression of Watson?
3) Why do you think Watson agrees to letting himself get closer to Holmes?
4) What would you do in Watson's place?
Have fun, all!
(And once again, I really am sorry. I love reading these stories and falling behind causes me as much woe as I'm sure it's caused you all.)
