Thanks for taking the time to clarify everything! When it comes to a character like Sherlock, sometimes it's tough to figure out just what's going on in his head even with the best of muns highlighting in introspection/brackets or with memes on plurk. I appreciate you taking the time to write that all out for me, it definitely makes things clearer. I wish I had more to add to that other than this tiny comment after you wrote so much.
I will add though in regards to what you've said here and what you said to the anon above, I think you could definitely benefit from some more ooc communication. Lately, when you plurk about the game, it's usually with comments like "I can't do tags tonight, will try tomorrow" or "just finished tags, now going to bed", and thus all your plurks become a timeline for your tagging styles but doesn't offer insight into what your characters are thinking or reaching out to other players to get some threads going or hash out ideas. I know that sometimes it can be intimidating to just jump in or something like that, but I think that especially with someone like Sherlock, being more communicative oocly will really help for others to interact with him.
Hope that helps, and again, thanks for taking the time to write that all out. :)
