Give me the name of a character that I write or have written, and I'll give you 3-5 things I associate with that character—items they might own, clothes they might wear, decor in their living spaces, colours or music that suits them, images that remind me of them, facts from my head canon, etc.

Feel free to ask for more than one character. OCs and AU versions welcome.

As I discovered and fell in love with your Sherlock stories on AO3 last month and particularly enjoyed "An Extended Stay", which featured the best Molly Hooper portrayal that I've encountered in fic so far, I'd love to hear your thoughts on her.
(Sorry for this terribly long sentence!)
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on July 19th, 2013 03:52 pm (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much! Nice to meet you. :-D

- Colour synesthesia for her name: MOLLY HOOPER
- 'Molly' is a pet name for Margaret, but literally no one ever uses her full name.
- Molly's cow oven mitt
- Molly's tea pot
- Her degree is in Biomedical Sciences, and she graduated from Imperial College London

I'm going to try and not be obvious (oh nevermind):

BBC Sherlock's Mycroft Holmes, please!
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on July 19th, 2013 03:30 pm (UTC)
Never not be obvious, m'dear. ILU!

-Colour synesthesia for his name: MYCROFT HOLMES
-Both his pocket watch and the gold ring he wears are his father's.
-Quite a good artist (seven years as an only child being doted on by Grand-maman meant a lot of tutelage), but lacks the work ethic to do much with it.
-I haven't finished it yet, but the Holmes Penthouse (where Mycroft sometimes lives) looks roughly like this. (Please ignore strange man in the loo, he's there for scale purposes)

I love the floor plan! (And it's fine to have a strange man in the loo as long as you remember to include a loo! I feel like I ought to be tagging some of my entries and comments: tag: toilet obsession)

Jack Harkness


and, either Faye or Mal Dresden
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on July 19th, 2013 04:05 pm (UTC)
I'll get back to you on Jack, but here's Fay:

- Colour synthesia for her name: JULIANNA MARGARET LEFAY DRESDEN
- Grown Uppish Fay
-Fay and Miranda
- Her daemon's settled form (a glasswinged butterfly)

donutsweeperdonutsweeper on July 19th, 2013 04:51 pm (UTC)
Oooh, love that butterfly and it works so well for Faye!
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on July 19th, 2013 11:16 pm (UTC)
Okay, here's Jack (I've not seen much past Series Two of TW, so I have no actual canon from that time period)

-Colour Synesthesia for his name: JACK HARKNESS
- Accidentally 'wrote' a number of WWII songs due to them having a revival in popularity when he was a child. He sang them, and they caught on in WWII period, but they hadn't been written yet. It's a stable time loop.
- Likes to dance, a lot, and knows hundreds of styles from many time periods and galaxies. Will demonstrate if you get him drunk enough.
donutsweeperdonutsweeper on July 19th, 2013 11:37 pm (UTC)
Oh, I like that he accidentally wrote songs!

And yes, I bet he would demonstrate his dancing skills if drunk enough!

Bob—from the show, if you can manage. I've only read two of the books so far (and find that Bob not very interesting, but then, he's basically a plot device rather than a character).
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on July 19th, 2013 11:25 pm (UTC)
TV!Bob is an amalgam of a number of characters from the books--Bob, Michael, Thomas. Book!Bob is basically snark and exposition in a bottle, though he does get some characterization in the later novels.

-Colour Synthesia for his name: HROTHBERT of BAINBRIDGE aka "BOB"
- Had an older brother and a younger sister (she died shortly after birth)
-Winifred looks very much like Waterhouse's Lady of Shalott in my mind.
- My mental image of Bob always has him wearing something like this, though I'm fairly sure he didn't wear anything like that on the show.
- Was very fond of his owner during the Victorian era and bases most of his wardrobe on his style.

Yes!

I was going to say Bob or Human!Bob, but alas! That's been claimed already. Harry Dresden or his dad, perhaps? ^_^
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on July 20th, 2013 12:47 am (UTC)
Ooh, Malcolm is intersting. Hmm.

-Colour synesthesia for his name: MALCOLM DRESDEN
-Watched a lot of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movies on the road, and taught Harry how to foxtrot.
- Kept a bottle of dirt from Maggie's grave, since he travelled too much to visit it regularly. Harry has it now, as well as a bottle from Malcolm's grave.
- He always read to Harry before bed, long past the age Harry should have grown out of it. He did all the voices, and when Harry re-reads some of his childhood favourites, he sometimes mimic the voices to himself because they sound wrong otherwise.
