I have no excuses...  
I just like this meme.

Give me the name of a character I write or have written and I'll tell you:
-What they smell like
-How they sleep (sleeping position, schedule, etc)
-What music they enjoy
-How much time they spend getting ready every morning
-Their favourite thing to collect
-Their family (siblings, parents, extended, etc.)
-A weird/obscure fear they have
-A secret skill

OCS and AUs welcome, as always. Feel free to ask for a couple of characters.

Putting this here to make it easier to respond from my iPad if necessary:

In the past I have done: Anderson, Mummy Holmes, Arthur Shappey, Kevin Ryan, Molly Hooper, Sarah Sawyer, Abby Watson, Mycroft Holmes, Q, Tony Stark (and Demira), and Sherlock Holmes.

Siger Holmes

What they smell like: Siger has a deep, musky smell from his cologne, which has notes of cedarwood, rum, cognac, jasmine and mandarin in it. His aftershave smells of oakmoss and rainwater. The overall impression is a masculine, deep, mysterious scent, but not overpowering.
How they sleep: Rarely. Siger suffers from intense insomnia, and probably only sleeps a few hours 2-3 nights per week, and then usually has one night every few weeks where he just collapses and sleeps for twelve hours at a stretch. He can't turn his mind off unless he's borderline exhausted and he can't sleep while he's thinking. He used to try and stay in bed with Dora early on in their relationship, but she told him lying there and watching her sleep was creepy, and to get up and do something. So, he does. If they do end up in bed together, they don't usually touch, as Dora is too used to sleeping on her own. But almost every morning he's home, he brings in the newspapers and they lie in bed together and read them. He also sticks around for a few hours if they've had sex, but as neither of them find it very important, it's not infrequent, but hardly regular.
What music they enjoy: Siger finds the music his family members make perfectly tolerable. Otherwise, he really doesn't have an interest in it.
How much time they spend getting ready every morning: Half an hour. Siger is a meticulous groomer, and never leaves the house looking less than his absolutely best, from lacquered hair to shining shoes. He never has stubble on his face, unless he's ill.
Their favourite thing to collect: Cuff links. He likes them, and they tend to be the one way his outfit is an expression of his personality. It's a gift he likes, so is often given to him, and thus, he has several pairs.
Their family:
Edward Holmes (father, an actuary)
Delia Holmes, nee Siger (mother, a homemaker)

Metrodra Holmes, nee Mycroft (wife, a homemaker and artist)

Mycroft Holmes (son, child)
Sherlock Holmes (son, child)
Trevelyan Holmes (son, child)

William Mycroft (father-in-law, retired spy translator of books)
Celestine Mycroft, nee Vernet (mother-in-law, amateur photographer)

Theodosia Archambault, nee Mycroft (sister-in-law, probably has a job)
Guillaume Archambault, (brother-in-law, probably also has a job)
Thaddeus Archmabault, (nephew, child)
Lysander Archambault (another nephew, child)
Sophronia Archambault (niece, girl child)
A weird/obscure fear they have: Stairs with open risers. Especially when using them with small children. A toddler could fall right through one of those, and he wouldn't put it past Sherlock to try.
A secret skill: He can write backwards, a skill developed from his admiration for Leonardo Da Vinci as a child.

This made me chuckle!

And it's interesting that Siger is such a meticulous groomer. I suppose it runs in the Holmes family? They all like looking good, eh? And writing backwards is pretty handy! Thanks for answering. :)
