A selection of the many (most of the time he was all I could see) photos I took today of Gatiss at filming. (I have more but these...

Yesss… Mrs. Hudson! I so LOVE her!
Well, let’s start by summarizing what...
Tailoring, intellect, poise…
After devoting serious, studious thought to the issue I have come up with the following list of people that I actively ship with Mycroft Holmes:
I also have no particular objections to adding in other members of the wider Metropolitan Police detective and forensics teams, landladies, snipers, recalcitrant journalists, passing minor characters that only appeared on screen for thirty seconds and had no lines, characters that exist only in AUs, characters from other fandoms, Frycroft (would that technically be masturbation?) and if that all wasn’t too weird then probably also Mark Gatiss himself.
So I have returned from my quest to read just about every Mycroft-centered fanfiction in existence, and I bear yet another long list of recs as a chronicle of my journey. Get ready for lots of flailing and me struggling to say, “This is wonderful!” in various ways.
My first massive list of Mycroft fic recs is here.
I’ve just opened nine new tabs of ones I haven’t read - I may be gone some time… <3
This may be a stupid question but in my defence I have no idea what the average image-concious middle-aged man does with his hair. (My Dad always considered combing his to be frankly an excessive effort unless he was soundly nagged.)
Anyway - what would Mycroft do to his hair to get it to go like it does? I’m sure Mark is subject to half a can of hairspray for filming makeup purposes, but that surely isn’t right for “real life”. I only have collar length hair myself but I don’t think mine would stay in that sort of arrangement without product of some sort in it, and then combing into place. Any suggestions of what Mycroft’s morning routine would be?
