It was that noise again. That dreadful cacophony of mixed voices, music, and sound effects that filled the Brownstone every time Sherlock meditated in front of his television sets. The noise set Joan’s teeth to clenching as she strode into the television room. Sure enough, Sherlock lay perched on the back of a chair, all attention focused on the screens. On each one, gaily colored ponies frolicked about in a mixture of settings and environments. Curiously, each set focused on a particular pair of pink and purple ponies.
Joan snorted. “You’re watching that show again.”
“Yes,” Sherlock said, his gaze staying on the screens, though he did lower the volume, thankfully. “I thought it prudent, given its relation to our current case.”
Joan nodded. “Right… each of the victims did seem to be fans of the show… though I can’t imagine why. Discover anything?”
“Apart from an apparent attempt by the show’s writers to get lesbian relationships past the censors, no.”
Furrowing her brow, Joan said, “I beg your pardon?”
The Simple Way clips fill me with dismay. I get the feeling I’m going to super dislike this episode. And it may negatively influence my opinion of the show as a whole, particularly if that one scene with AJ is the beginning of fanservice…
The door to her boutique crunched under the weight of her rear hooves slamming it open. Rarity galloped inside, her body convulsing with every breath. She snarled as she caught a glance of herself in one of her mirrors. Her mane hung around her, drenched in sweat and muck and tangled like rotten ropes. Her face was pale and gaunt, the flesh of her neck stretched out with the strain of her cracked lips curled to reveal her sharp, jagged teeth. Her throat was swollen, parched, drier than a desert dune. Her eyes bulged, bloodshot, the once sapphire irises turned crimson. They were wild.
Like a beast.
“Twilight!” The words tore themselves from her throat in a guttural howl. “I need you! Now!”
So, I conceived this idea while walking to the DMV earlier today to get me an Oregon driver’s license. Although it doesn’t quite contain all of the details I wanted to include, because of time constraints, I’m really happy with how the description came out in the opening paragraphs. It’s more or less exactly what I pictured in my head for once, which is pretty damned amazing. I know how I pulled that off too so I think can start actually repeating that feat in the future.
