Those of a passive disposition offer themselves to the Royals of those tastes that polite society does not speak of, though it is known of course.

This is middling-to-majorly nerdy of me, but howandever. It's been bugging me slightly since discussing the various Holmes adaptations with people, in particular the BBC Sherlock version and the Downey film version. Just a small exploration of the original, Arthur Conan Doyle Holmes, mostly concerned with his views on crime/morality/law. Only my interpretation, but one I'm ... ah, rather vehemently attached to.

Sherlock Remix - for AJHall: "Off-side coupling reins, width 3/4 inch"
Holmes let out a short laugh. “I am no great coachman, but even I can say with confidence that the dog-cart is not designed for such speeds as we reached last night. Well, never mind; the evidence was secured, Colonel Jameson was brought into custody, and I have every confidence that the police will make their case against him, thanks in great part to his own wife. I tell you, Watson, if half my clients exhibited such decisive curiosity as Marjorie Jameson, my job would be vastly simpler, and you would have far less to occupy your pen.”
