The Sherlock Tag of Ten

Greetings, dear friends!
It is time for something elementary, because the game is afoot over at Notes From a Hartfield Girl and The Winchester North Star, because Miss Woodhouse and Thunderbird Queen are hosting a Sherlock Blog Party!
All of May is featuring the BBC tv series. They created a tag that I am going to fill out today! I only watched it last year for the first time, but I would love to rewatch sometime because it is so complex while being really fun.

That being said, there are SPOILERS for the tv show Sherlock, so if you haven't watched it, don't read any further!

~ A Tag of Ten ~:
Would You Rather....
1. Spend a day with Sherlock or John?
I feel like this is all that would happen with Sherlock. I would not interest him at all. Nevertheless, it would be fun, and I would probably pester him with questions, like the little boy in The Sign of Three.

2. Watch the first episode or last episode?

I know that this is an unpopular opinion, but I actually didn't like the first episode. I don't know, I wasn't really excited about watching it and my sister was dragging me into it. I didn't really enjoy the entire first season, and I only got into it in season 2, episode 2, The Hounds of Baskervile. But, I loved the last episode! It was marvellous. The emotion made me cry.

3. Have Sherlock's mind or John's compassion?

*rubs hands together* Any excuse for quoting a James Stewart movie is a good one. Here is one of his lines in the movie Harvey (1950):
"Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' -- she always called me Elwood -- 'In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. And you may quote me."
I choose John's compassion!
(Can we also talk about in the episode Sign of Three when Sherlock said, "Here I was trying to solve a murder and John Watson saved a man's life. Ah! I love it!)

4. Work with Molly or Lestrade?

My first response was to say Molly, but it wasn't until I was reading other answers that I remembered where each of them work. In that case, I would say Greg Lestrade.

5. Face off against Moriarty or Magnussen?

If you can't tell, I'm groaning over here. This is such a hard question! Ugh, probably Moriarty just because he doesn't gross me out as much as Magnussen.

6. Be best friends with Molly or Mary?

Molly Hooper! Though, Mary is awesome, too,

7. Prevent the events of The Recheinbach Fall or The Six Thatchers?

The Six Thatchers was so horribly sad, I still can't process it. So yeah, that one.

8. Deal with a grumpy Sherlock or a grumpy Mycroft?

Not sure. I think that I could just ignore both of them until they are feeling better.

9. Ride in Mrs. Hudson's car or Mycroft's helicopter?

Mrs. Hudson's car! Haha!

10. Babysit Rosie or help plan the Watson wedding?

Is this even a question?? Babysit Rosie, of course!

A huge thanks to Miss Woodhouse and Thunderbird Queen for hosting this! I had a ton of fun! Check out the links in the comments HERE for more answers to this tag!

Thanks for reading! Where are the other Sherlock fans? Do you agree with my answers?



  1. I love Sherlock. Some of the episodes are a bit intense for me, especially in the final season, but it's so well done. <3

    1. I can't believe that it took so long for me to get into it! Oh yeah, the last season definitely was intense, but it was great! <3

  2. I've never seen Sherlock, but I've been mildly intrigued by it for years...it looks quite fun. And soul-harrowing. But y'know. The best things are both.

    1. I think that you would like it, Megan! If you watch it I would love to read your thoughts! That is so true! The best things really are both. They make laugh, cry, and be incredibly happy. :)

  3. I have not seen this Sherlock show. I've seen lots of Pinterest pictures though.... ;)
    I'll have to watch it sometime.


    1. Rakayle, you would love the mysteries! They are so complex. My only warning is that there is a bit of intense content as a lot of the mysteries involve death and are sometimes brutal. But, even still they are really good!

  4. Love your answers! Definitely would work with Lestrade over Molly. XD

    1. Thanks! I was wondering if you've seen Sherlock. I prefer Greg's job. XD
