I've just finished watched both seasons BBC's series Sherlock
. God damn is it amazing. I've read some Doyle before, and it's not been bad
, but the series makes the transition to the 21st century not only intact but arguably better off. If nothing else, then simply because the conditions of your own time are what you can most easily relate to.
Now, in Exalted terms, I don't think anyone will argue with me if I say that Sherlock is a Twilight. Maxed out Mental, standard Physical and decent Social (Charisma is way low, but he does have high Manipulation (and Appearance, rawr
)). Obviously top Lore, Awareness, Investigation and Integrity, but certainly no low parts Presence, Performance or Craft: Water either. It's so obvious it's painful.
Watson, though. What's he? Lunar presents itself as a good alternative, what with the companionship he forms with Sherlock and the way he acts as a catalyst for the Solar brilliance. He's been a soldier, but he's hardly all strength and physical which would qualify him as a Full Moon, and while he's certainly pleasant, he's not a socialite in the real sense of the word (in fact, he never seem to manage to make his girlfriends stick around for long). No Moon does suggest itself, what with his pursuit being one of education and knowledge, and even in the presence of Sherlock he makes some impressive conclusions himself.
Am I in the right area?
