John finds it extremely frustrating that Sherlock won’t sing their theme song with him.
“Yes, I’m aware,” snapped Sherlock, and then sped his pace up. It took John a moment or two of trying to keep up with him to realise that he was deliberately walking out-of-sync with their theme.
Right, he thought. Doesn’t like singing. Which was weird, given that the majority of people just accepted it as an unavoidable and occasionally rather fun part of life, but it wasn’t as if that was the weirdest thing he’d already noticed about Sherlock.
Why You Should Read This:
I love flawedamythyst’s writing and this is no exception. This story is hilarious and charming. The premise is unlike anything I’ve read before. The plot is set in the first and second seasons but the author gives the familiar story lines a different and entertaining spin. John and Sherlock live in a world where it’s normal for people to burst out into musical numbers on a regular basis. There are solos, duets, and even big ensemble numbers.
Flawedamythest makes the story work extremely well. The transitions between the musical numbers and the rest of the story are smooth. I liked the songs very much. I found myself wising I could hear the music. so I could sing along. A Very Sherlock Musical is just a lot of fun. I highly recommend it.
