Okay, everything else awesome about Scandal in Belgravia aside (which is actually everything)
Is anyone else imagining John and Sherlock playing a game of Cluedo that gets so heated Sherlock stabs the fucking board to the wall.
I giggled at the milk.
“It was the dagger on the Cluedo board in the living room!”
This clearly happened because, somehow, John beat Sherlock at Cluedo.
Sorry guys i accidently a board game crack ficlet.
Sherlock fails to grasp the concept of Cluedo.
Sherlock still fails to grasp the concept of Cluedo.
“Where’s the logic? How can i deduce the motives of plastic pieces?”
There is a mad rush for the best Cluedo characters. In the end, John claims Colonel Mustard, Sherlock is Professor Plum, Mycroft has Reverend Green. Greg is left with Miss Peacock.
Greg sulks. John tries not to laugh.
Sherlock asks if he can take Reverend Green in for interrogation. John explains that’s not how the game works.
John sees Lestrade’s cards reflected in the mirror behind him. He now knows it was the lead pipe.
Sherlock asks for all the other characters cooperation in recreating the scene of the crime. John explains that’s not how the game works.
Sherlock wants to know if the victim is related to any of the suspects. John explains that’s not how the game works.
Mycroft can see through John’s paper due to the lamp behind him. He now knows it was the lead pipe in the kitchen.
Lestrade can only seem to roll the numbers one or two and so never actually manages to get into any room. He sulks.
Sherlock is choosing which room to enter, John gets out Miss Scarlet and has Colonel Mustard chat her up.
Sherlock sees Miss Scarlet and Colonel Mustard getting a bit too friendly in the billiard room and decides to investigate.
Reverend Green gets restless whilst waiting for his turn and starts dancing with Mrs White in the ballroom.
Sherlock thinks Mrs White has an uncanny resemblance to Mrs Hudson.
Mycroft chooses to say nothing. He is a little frightened that anything said against Mrs Hudson would result in him taking several trips out the window.
John sees Mycroft flinch and forces back a smile. He agrees that yes, she does have an uncanny resemblance to Mrs White.
The game has turned into a soap opera. Colonel Mustard is having an affair with Miss Scarlet who is engaged to Reverend Green. Professor Plum knocks over Miss White in a fit of rage and Miss Peacock seems to still be wandering around the corridors aimlessly.
John reveals the cards and wins the game, the truth is that it was Professor Plum in the kitchen with the lead pipe. Everyone looks at Sherlock with mock how could you expressions that soon crumble when he gasps “that cannot be right!” and looks for all the world as if he has just been framed for a real murder.
Sherlock refuses to accept that he was the murderer without knowing he was the murderer.
Lestrade tells Sherlock it is just a game and he won’t be taken into police custody.
Sherlock gives Lestrade the evils of a lifetime.
Sherlock throws Professor Plum like a toddler throwing a tantrum. John will find it a week later on top of the bookshelf.
John proposes they play Monopoly.
Sherlock proposes they burn Cluedo in the fiery depths of hell.
In the end, Sherlock stabs the Cluedo board to the wall in a fit of rage and John wonders, not for the first time, if the consulting detective is actually five years old.
That ficlet. THAT FICLET.
