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.
I was looking at varaciouspanda’s art in deviantart and i noticed you commissioned them to have a big ol dean being checked by a small john Watson. You ever going to do anything with that?
You bet we will be! (Though it’s Sam and not Dean in the pic)
We commissioned this picture of big Sam and tiny John Watson doctoring him, and there are plans in the works for a future story with these two (and of course some others).
Once @borrowedtimeandspace escapes from school, we have many plans we’ve been cooking up that we hope to get to, and I just had to commission voraciouspanda / @justanothergiant when they opened up commissions, they’re perfect at this style scene!
In the Brothers Consulted sneak peaks Stan meets smolls for the first time, after being informed of their existence, and in Brothers Kept their already known to the world… But what would happen if he didn’t known of their existence before interacting with them for the first time? How would he react? grab? Freeze up? Trap? Offer them tea with biscuits or cookies?! Also, what if John was the one to discover the brothers, and not Sherlock? How would this affect the relationships between the four?
Stan is lowkey a g/t nerd himself, so even if he’d never heard of borrowers before or had any idea they were real, he’d have generally positive reactions. Depending on the circumstances he might get a little overexcited and even a bit grabby, especially if the smol tries to run away before Stan gets to introduce himself and learn more about the smol!
Aside from that it would mostly be amazed stares and curious questions. If the smol stuck around, they would learn that he’s receptive to their feelings regarding the meeting, and will adjust his behavior to try and make them more comfortable.
Wouldn’t leave tea and biscuits completely off the table.
As for John, we mused ages ago about a few situations in which he was the one to find Sam and Dean before Sherlock, ones that probably aren’t likely to be written into full stories since it’s not likely to change the overall dynamic and story from what’s been established in Brothers Consulted. Mostly it builds trust with John a little earlier on since he’s more likely to let them go about their business if he accidentally finds them.
What are some cute headcannons for Brothers Discovered
Well, we’re not really the ones to give out headcanons, because anything we come up with is most likely to end up canon, since we’ll be the ones writing it! But for cute things… I imagine Sam will get all huffy when it comes time to move (he still hates moving around!) and what is John to do with this kid that just throws himself on his bed and dares them to move him?
Commence Dean throwing himself into the situation, talking about how he’s going to be using Sam’s bed from now on since Sam won’t need it if he’s staying here, and Sam just getting so offended by it.
Does anyone have a headcanon for Brothers Discovered? We’d love to hear what you guys think for these cuties!
This is the last time we’ll be able to share any of our own headcanons, since when we come up with them, they don’t stay headcanons long! But we encourage everyone else to come up with ideas for them!
(If I get anything wrong, please let me know)You said Destiel and Johnlock isn’t canon in the BA universe, so I get that there not gonna be together, but does that necessarily mean that all four of them are heterosexual?(Aside from whether it will actually show in the stories).I know you have quite a few lgbt OCs(Stan, Nathan, Chase, Jacob, did I miss anyone?), are there any other characters from the LGBT society? I love all your characters and your work is amazing! Thank for being so awesome!
Well, you’ve got it half right– two of the four are hetero!
Dean and John stick with strictly hetero relationships in the Brothers Apart multiverse, but Sherlock and Cas are another story.
As an angel of the Lord, Castiel in his angelic form is both agender and asexual. He does take on the attributes of his vessel if he inhabits them for long enough, so when Dean knows him he is a male, while he has also been a female in the distant past. Sherlock, as well, is asexual, married to his work more than any person he could fall in love with.
As far as other characters that appear in the storylines that are on the LGBT spectrum, we do actually have quite a few others…
Celeste, like her younger brother Castiel, was agender and asexual, though in the past she has shown a liking for women, and has currently been inhabiting a vessel for several hundred years, giving her a female way of thinking as she picks up her vessel’s habits.
All aeternum sprites are strictly feminine. There are no males of their race (making Sam quite an odd sight for Nixie!), and they do have relationships with each other. The fire sprites especially, with the burning passion that they feel for all things. Air sprites as well, though those relationships tend to spark quickly and end fast. Water and earth are more subdued, but very committed partners.
The characters Bardolph and Xander (who appear in this short story, and will be appearing later on in Brothers Apart season 3), are a pair of borrowers that will also fit on the spectrum. Barry has no interest in women, and Xander is surprised to find out he’s interested in both men and women. They’re particular faves.
Yep, you got Jacob and Chase right! Jacob Andris is ace/aro, so he’d be less interested in dating and more interested in being your buddy. He’s a very good hugger and listener, so that’s a good combo right there. Chase Lisong is bisexual with no strong preference of any gender over another.
In addition to them, nearly every one of my sprites (including Bowman Leafwing) is biromantic/demisexual.
I also have Elias Dawn, a genderfluid/pansexual trickster that may someday make an appearance in the BA Multiverse!
Could you imagine seeing someone just tapping out a conversation? With no one? Who’s that guy talking to, is this just a nervous habit? Then realizing that someone else might actually be tapping back… There’s more to this guy than meets the eye.
There actually is one other character who knows Morse (without learning it within the story context, which a few likely will!). John Watson knows it from his time serving, and used it a few times on cases during his time with Sherlock. How he puts this skill to use with the tiny bros remains to be seen!
Struck by a thought, John carefully reached a hand toward the brothers, extending a finger to Dean with an amiable look in his eye. “Shake on it?”
Dean recoiled from the hand, his eyes darting from the extended finger up to John’s expression to read his intent. Spotting nothing but honesty in the planes of John’s face, he hesitantly reached forward.
As his hand approached the waiting finger, Dean’s much smaller fingers brushed against the thick skin and flinched. Reaching forward again, Dean gripped John’s fingertip, finding his entire hand inadequate to cover the entire surface. Using that same determination, Dean reached out with his second hand as well, clasping the rest of John’s fingertip and a bit of his nail, the rigid surface ungiving between Dean’s hands as he shook them up once, then down.
