What did you say to them?

She's just going to assume he's the reason everyone is crying. It wouldn't be the first time.

Nothing. I just explained how the murder happened.

[Sherlock hadn't insulted anyone's intelligence, either. Well, other than DI Dimmock's.]

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-23 08:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Who are you explaining it to?

[It was about context. Something which Sherlock never seemed able to take into consideration-who his audience was.]
consulting_freak: (Criminology)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 12:47 am (UTC)(link)
The victim's family and friends.

[She rolls her eyes when she reads his text. He really was proper clueless sometimes.]

You went into detail about the murder to the victim's family? That's why they're crying Sherlock. Hearing about how your loved one died is upsetting to most people.

His widow asked me what happened. Was I supposed to lie or cut corners?

[Sherlock has a little bit better sense than to bring this up uninvited to the victims' families. (After that incident several years back that earned him a punch in the nose, anyway.)]
theonewhocounted: (hopeful)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 02:00 am (UTC)(link)
Cut corners. Sugar-coat.

[She wasn't sure if Sherlock was actually capable or understood the idea of "sugar-coating."

If she didn't want to know the truth, then why would she ask?

[Sherlock should have redirected her to Lestrade, but he really wanted to show off how much he'd been able to read out of so little.]

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 02:21 am (UTC)(link)
There's a way to tell the truth without being clinical and detailed.

Where's John?

[He usually handles these situations with Sherlock it seems.]
consulting_freak: (Mass Killer)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
Not answering his texts or voice mail.

[Sherlock had thought he'd been improving before this, too.]
theonewhocounted: (working)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
Are you concerned?

[That seemed unlike John to her. Especially when Sherlock was involved.]
consulting_freak: (Refractive Index)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
Why? Should I be concerned?

[Sherlock is slightly worried about John, but he's got nothing to go on but a few missed texts and a missed call. He'd certainly feel stupid if he were to pursue this and find that John's just away from his phone for a moment. If Molly is also worried, he'll be more confident to act on it regardless.]

I suppose that depends on how long it's been or if you think you did something to upset him.
consulting_freak: (Polygraph)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
Nine minutes.

I frequently upset him. He usually gets over it fast enough.
theonewhocounted: (hopeful)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
Oh. Nine minutes is no time at all. I'm sure you'll hear from him soon.

But I'm here if you need me.
consulting_freak: (Swap File)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
Nine minutes is relative. When it's spent in front of a sobbing audience, it doesn't feel so fast.
theonewhocounted: (Default)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 04:35 am (UTC)(link)
Can you take your leave?

[That seemed like the safest option and she doubted they would miss him if he had upset them so much.]
consulting_freak: (Electron Microscope)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 04:38 am (UTC)(link)
They asked me to leave five minutes ago.
theonewhocounted: (hopeful)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 04:47 am (UTC)(link)
Then why are you still there?
consulting_freak: (Multiple Personality Disorder)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 04:51 am (UTC)(link)
Because when I told them to make me, no one did.

[But that's a good question. He doesn't want to be here. No one wants him here. The only reason he's still standing around is a matter of misplaced pride that doesn't actually matter for anything.

Okay, Molly. You win. Sherlock is going to leave now before things get any more uncomfortable for him.
theonewhocounted: (Default)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 04:58 am (UTC)(link)
Oh Sherlock, you didn't?

consulting_freak: (Criminology)

[personal profile] consulting_freak 2014-02-24 04:59 am (UTC)(link)
I did. And now I've left, too.
theonewhocounted: (Default)

[personal profile] theonewhocounted 2014-02-24 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
That's good.
