You got other detectives in my Sherlock!

These examples are both from season 1, so no spoilers.  

"Rachel" -- A Study in Pink

Dying clue.  Famously used and made popular by the fictional detective Ellery Queen, to have the murder victim scribble out a dying clue.  And yes, EQ used that a LOT.  

Grammar police scene -- The Great Game

Nero Wolfe.  I'm sure Wolfe does this more than once; Wolfe is a particularly snarky detective, much like our Sherlock.  I just reread one of Wolfe's famous bits with a suspect, as you can see by the link.

Ideally I'd have a third "this belongs to another detective" bit here, but I haven't.  Sorry.  If I get something from future reads, I'll add that in and link back here.

I could pretend that The Blind Banker wasn't all ACD, but I'd be lying.  Everyone loves to use the secret codes... written on walls.  :D

Today is brought to you by the letter S.

Speculation, Sherlock, friendship, fan art, siblings...  (S won; I couldn't say F!)

Mostly spoiler zone territory.  Except for this drawing of Sherlock.

By the way, Benedict's  just finished filming August: Osage County according to Cumberbatchweb.

Found in LiveJournal: STUFF. :)

Mmmm, found another blogger who's going through eps, Hells-Half-Acre.

Here's Great Game, parts 1 and 2; Blind Banker; and Study in Pink parts 1, 2, and 3.  (That's the order I found them in.)  The rest of HHA's Sherlock posts are tagged here.  That includes her takes on season 2, so you are duly warned!

Anyone who ships will get lots of kicks out of the TBB post.  Trust me.

For anyone wondering, that tag includes her own fics.  :D  If you happen to be a Supernatural fan, HHA is a fan of that also (I haven't seen any Supernatural, and it's unlikely that I will).

After the break is both spoiler-territory (Scandal) and her blog post about slash.

The Game Is On and other sweets.

Mycroft pose.  Afraid this is [nearly] all spoiler zone territory.

Mycroft Meta, a fic, and a request.

Spoiler alert:  This is ALL season 2, mixed into season 1, with no spoiler warnings inside the links themselves.
