More on Sherlock’s knack

I can’t stop imagining a smoll Doctor Strange! One of his manny powers is time manipulation, which includes being able to slow down time. I gotta ask, did you get Sherlock’s knack idea from there? Either way, his ability fits him well, I love it! 

Lol! While it is true that borrower Sherlock shares a lot in common with Dr. Strange, his knack actually comes right from the BBC Sherlock TV show, and how Sherlock is shown.

His ‘deduction thing’ often shows him racing ahead of the rest of the world while he figures everything out, and this is an extension of that! It took an integral part of how he thinks and allows him to project it on the rest of the world, so now he’s even faster.

Chances are, John gets slowed down a lot.

It kind of works with the way the show is too! When Sherlock concentrates on a crime scene, he sees everything in a short amount of time. I like it! Cool!

Exactly the effect we were going for with Sherlock! He’s one of the borrowers who’s knack builds off of his own character, much like Dean and tracking.
