Association Meme  
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.

I know I always ask for this, but could you do the Trio-verse brothers? I love them so much. <3

Finally a chance to use all the stuff I collect for no purpose! :-D

- Synesthesia for his name: MYCROFT EDWARD HOLMES
- Seaglass paperweight (birthday gift from Mummy). It's on his desk in his home office. He doesn't like to keep anything personal on his work desk.
- This is his favourite piece of music. Entirely coincidentally, of course, it's a piece Mummy plays a lot.
- Grand-maman's photo that he got from Mummy for Christmas.
- Grand-maman used to call him 'Mico' (Mee-co, she also often called him Mee-croft, if she was being very French that day). Mummy still does sometimes, but uses his pet name far less often than with the other two children. Probably because he finds it more embarrassing than the others do.

- Synesthesia for his name: SHERLOCK VERNET HOLMES. Sherlock is a 'white' name, so I couldn't do the visual colour there.
- I have this picture associated with childhood pirate adventures.
-During the Hiatus, Sherlock kept in contact with Q through editing an open source code on the Internet, leaving comments within the code to communicate. Everything was very, very cryptic, except for the day when MI6 was attacked by Silva. Then the comment was a pithy, if ever-so-slightly concerned question as to whether Q was in one piece.
- He has a few of his father's notebooks. He doesn't look at them, and actually very rarely ever has, but they're in a drawer somewhere in 221B. He's discovered he organizes information very similarly in his own notebooks, without being aware of it.
-Swiss Army ring (Christmas present from Mummy)

- Synthesia for his name: TREVELYAN SHERRINGFORD HOLMES. Sherrinford is also a white name.
- The cat who came with the flat he currently lives in is a British shorthair who looks like this. Her original name was Smiley, which Q suspects and hopes was a nod to the Le Carre character and not her disposition, as she's not very smiley at all. He changed her name to Fenena. But he only ever calls her The Cat.
- Some of Q's cufflinks: Meteorite slices (birthday gift from Mummy), Union Flags, abacuses, USB and Wi-FI, Qs, galleons (inherited from Father)
- Q's fidget ring. Mummy gave one to all three brothers, but Q uses his more than the other two do.

- Extra thing for all three brothers: Siger has always look very much like Jeremy Northam in my mind, only with slightly lighter and much greener eyes.

Ooh, these are wonderful--thank you for all the links; I loved seeing the pictures! Q has such an impressive cufflink collection! Gorgeous.

And I love Sherlock's Swiss Army ring best. Perfect present for him.

I'll be not surprising and say Tony Stark and Demira.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on November 28th, 2014 07:16 pm (UTC)
Hee! No complaints on the lack of surprise. :D

Tony Stark and Demira
- Synesthesia for their names:
ANTHONY "TONY" HOWARD STARK (Stark is a white name, with a touch of very, very pale blue).
- Demira has a bad habit of hanging semi-upside down to look at things. It's only a 'bad' habit, because sometimes the things she's looking at are other people's daemons, and sometimes the places she's hanging from is their bodies. Nemi is pretty chill about Mim hanging off her nose, but Issie is a little weird about her ears and Altan is totally uptight about any part of his body. Even if he's hanging off something, too, which is a little judgmental.
- Tony's mom was a big Gene Kelly fan and he grew-up with the movies playing a lot. Consequently, he and Mim have a bit of a soft spot for him, too. This is their favourite number (obviously with daemons in it, but you have to draw a line somewhere and it might be assigning daemons to 1940's film stars). Tony can kinda tap dance. He was put it classes for a few weeks, but proved to be too rambunctious to concentrate properly and was asked to leave. Also, he took the stereo apart. The teacher was not pleased, despite his improving the sound quality.
- JARVIS doesn't have a daemon, obviously, but the hud interface in Mim's part of the Iron Man suits is informally called 'H.A.D.D.I.E', in honour of the real Jarvis's daemon. Mim is still working on what the acronym stands for but she likes 'Huge Awesome Data Display Interface Experiment'.
-One of Mim's favourite forms when she was unsettled was a hummingbird. She liked to fly backwards so she could talk to Tony (he didn't like to stop to talk and sometimes she needed to get in his face), and it also let her put her beak into small places to get small things or hold them in place until Tony got the screws.

Edited to add in Tony's middle name. This is why I shouldn't post before naptime.

I may have aw'd rather audibly while reading that.

I've never been sure if Mim can speak to JARVIS directly, as in he can hear and respond to her voice. It seems like it would be taboo. So I thought Mim communicates via some sort of movement detection, and the H.A.D.D.I.E interface just basically allows her to see what's up while she's in the suit, and maybe makes it less weird for her to interact with it. Because J.A.R.V.I.S is sort of a person, and it's weird to interact with a person who isn't Tony.
