Meme (It's an Addiction Now)  
I combined the first two OTP memes from before and did two more couples.

Couples Playing:
Adam Young and Sophie Taylor
Jeremy "Wensleydale" Barnes and Pippin Galadriel "Pepper" Owens


Adam Young & Sophie Taylor

big spoon/little spoon:
Adam is almost always the big spoon.

favorite non-sexual activity:
Watching movies or going for walks with Dog the Third.

what has a season pass on their dvr/who controls the netflix queue:
Adam adores American shows of various types. He’s got The Wire, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Boardwalk Empire all on their queue. They both like quaint mystery shows like Midsomer Murders, Inspector Morse, and Marple.

who uses all the hot water:
It’s funny but they have a really great flat where hot water never seems to be an issue no matter how long of a shower they take.

most trivial thing they fight over:
Whether or not cereal can be counted as a proper meal.

who cooks normally?:
Sophie. Adam mostly watches her and sometimes eats the ingredients before she can use them. He’s useless that way.

who kissed who first?:
Adam kissed Sophie. In the rain. It was very romantic.

who does most of the cleaning:
They split it but it almost always takes Sophie longer to do the cleaning.

who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
Again, their flat’s amazing. They’ve never had this issue.

who remembers anniversaries:
Adam. He’s really good about dates.

How often do they fight?
Not very much. But when they do it tends to get resolved on the same day. They’ve yet to go to bed still angry at one another.

What do they do when they’re away from each other?
Sophie watches a lot of romantic comedies that she’s too embarrassed to tell Adam that she loves to pieces. Adam enjoys getting lost in the neverending spiral that is Wikipedia reading.

Nicknames for each other?
Adam sometimes calls her ‘Soph.’ There’s no real nickname that can come out of Adam. His name is very normal and straightforward that way.

Who is more likely to pay for dinner?
They split it though on the first date Adam paid.

Who steals the covers at night?
Sophie. Adam doesn’t really mind though.

What would they get each other for gifts?
Sophie gets Adam clothes. It’s perhaps boring but he has a tendency to wear things until they fall apart so it’s good to have certain favorite items in rotation. Adam usually buys Sophie whatever she instructs him to. People have told Sophie this is somewhat unromantic and she supposes Adam could get her something that’s his own idea. But she figures if she knows what she wants for her birthday, why can’t she just tell him? It saves a lot of time and trouble.

Who swears more?
Sophie swears more just by the fact that Adam never seems to swear. She’s not sure if he does this purposefully or he’s just not the swearing type.

What would they do if the other one was hurt?
It hasn’t happened yet but Sophie would probably drop everything to make sure Adam was okay and if it was really bad, call her sister for moral support. But Adam hasn’t even gotten a cold yet since being with Sophie so this has never been an issue. Whenever Sophie’s been ill, Adam’s come around to make sure she had everything she needed. Sophie has never liked her previous boyfriends seeing her in such a miserable state but she always felt a little better whenever Adam showed up with soup and Lemsip. Luckily neither of them has ever been seriously hurt.

Who started the relationship?
Technically Adam asked Sophie out first. Sophie was smitten for a long time though and usually tried to talk to Adam whenever possible without making it look she was stalking him or anything.

Toughest decision they've made?
In the end, adopting children. Adam and Sophie had trouble conceiving and trying medical procedures was a nightmare for Sophie who has a phobia about doctors. In the end, they decided to adopt.



Jeremy "Wensleydale" Barnes & Pippin Galadriel "Pepper" Owens
big spoon/little spoon:
Neither, really. Jeremy sleeps on his back and Pepper usually curls up on his side.

favorite non-sexual activity:
Playing board games, marathon-style.

what has a season pass on their dvr/who controls the netflix queue:
Both Jeremy and Pepper enjoy documentaries related to the history. The one about the pharaohs of Egypt was a favorite. Jeremy also likes his science programs. Pepper enjoys Mastermind. She really gets into it and starts shouting at the television. They never watch Jeremy’s stuff though as he’s funny about seeing himself on screen. Film premieres are always a nightmare for him because of this.

who uses all the hot water:
It used to be Pepper with her very long curly dense ginger hair but she’s recently chopped it all off so now she showers about as long as Jeremy.

most trivial thing they fight over:
Whose turn is it to do the washing up. They both HATE the washing up.

who cooks normally?:
Jeremy. He likes the process of preparing the ingredients and trying out new things. Pepper lacks patience for this sort of stuff. Whenever Jeremy is away on a job, Pepper will either order a takeaway or open a can of something.

who kissed who first?:
Pepper kissed Jeremy. It was during a cast party after one of Jeremy’s plays.

who does most of the cleaning:
It usually ends up being Pepper since she stays home more with her writing. This is always her strongest argument for why then Jeremy should do the washing up at least.

who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
Again, Pepper since she’s usually the one at home.

who remembers anniversaries:
They’re both not so great about these. They do remember big things though like when they got married. Usually. Their schedules can get hectic with filming schedules and book tours.

How often do they fight?
Pepper tends to be the more vocal one so if something’s bother her, she’ll make it clear. Loudly. Jeremy usually gets quieter when he argues. But he thinks about his arguments and approaches it like he’s trying to win some sort of court case.

What do they do when they’re away from each other?
If they’re apart from each other it’s usually because one of them is working. So Pepper will be writing and Jeremy will be acting.

Nicknames for each other?
Pepper still calls him Wensley and Jeremy still calls her Pepper or Pep. Granted, Pepper goes by Pepper even professionally.

Who is more likely to pay for dinner?
They split it. Jeremy tried to be chivalrous at the start of their dating and pay but Pepper gave him a Look and he stopped that.

Who steals the covers at night?
Neither. Both Pepper and Jeremy tend to kick their covers onto the floor during the night. Their house is well heated so this isn’t even an issue during the winter.

What would they get each other for gifts?
Pepper gets Jeremy the latest gadget he’s obsessed with. Jeremy buys Pepper trips to places where she can get inspiration to write.

Who swears more?
Pepper, definitely. One time Jeremy got a role though that required a lot of swearing so he went all method and decided to actively swear more. It was very liberating.

What would they do if the other one was hurt?
Jeremy would research everything that was related to the injury and/or illness and see what he could do to cure it. Pepper would try to distract Jeremy from the pain and/or suffering with funny stories.

Who started the relationship?
The relationship was officially started by Pepper with that first kiss. Technically, though, Jeremy’s been in love with her since they were children.

Toughest decision they've made?
So far it’s been telling their other childhood friends that they were now together. Brian was really shocked that it even happened because wasn’t it a bit like dating your sibling?? Adam just smiled like it was obviously going to happen at some point.

I'm sorry I got you into this shipping mess. I promise I will get you help! Just as soon as I get some for myself.

Sophie and Adam are so sweet! I like Sophie's slightly neurotic nature countered by Adam's innate steadiness. It must be very soothing. And awww to them adopting children. I was wondering if the children of the anti-Christ would get powers, but I guess we won't know.

I've been thinking about having Molly and Alec adopt, if I get them to that point. Mostly because from my research it seems very very dangerous to be pregnant and working in a lab, but at the same time I just want to see Sherlock trying to work with her while she's pregnant and having conflicting emotions of trying to be patient and safety conscious whlle also going 'why did you do this to yourself? This is so inconvenient'.

I also very much enjoy Pepper and Jeremy's adventurer lives. It's nice to see that they grew up to be all the things they dreamt of when they were little.

Yes, please tell me if you find any support groups or interventions. This might be getting serious.

It's on an unconscious level mostly but Adam is worried about his kids inheriting his powers and going through the same difficulties. So without being aware, he's using his powers to prevent any pregnancies. But they'll be fine with adopting. Adam was raised by non-biological parents and that turned out really well.

I just want to see Sherlock trying to work with her while she's pregnant and having conflicting emotions of trying to be patient and safety conscious whlle also going 'why did you do this to yourself? This is so inconvenient'.

Maybe Molly can get pregnant and then take leave. So Sherlock does the manual work at the lab and phones in his results to Molly who does the non-chemical related analyzing on her end? I can see him breaking into the pathology lab and doing an illegal autopsy while saying this is all Molly's fault for getting pregnant. It didn't have to be like this.

It's nice to see that they grew up to be all the things they dreamt of when they were little.

I think Pepper became the person she always would have been even if she'd not met Adam. But Jeremy definitely became an actor because of all the games he used to play as part of Adam's group. Otherwise he probably would have become an academic or something and been vaguely unfulfilled with his life.

I was quite pleased that I wrote some Trio verse tonight. No ships at all!

I hear the first step is admitting you have a problem, so we're off to a good start.

I can see him breaking into the pathology lab and doing an illegal autopsy while saying this is all Molly's fault for getting pregnant. It didn't have to be like this.

Hehe! And Molly very disapproving but also quite pleased because she's bored at home.

I feel like poor Sherlock will be panicking about all the children by this point. Like 'I've only just made enough room for Abby in my hard drive, you can't go and ask me to care about more small humans'.

Awww. Maybe because Adam created a feeling that anything was possible. Because it sort of was.

Yay! More Trio-verse!

Like 'I've only just made enough room for Abby in my hard drive, you can't go and ask me to care about more small humans'.

It's probably particularly rankling since right now these small humans are completely useless to Sherlock directly. So it feels like wasted HD space.

Exactly. I also have the general headcanon (OMG seriously someone stop me) that Wensley's parents were a little unclear what to do with him because he seemed like a 47 year old when he was 10 so they went with his overly mature behavior. Meanwhile, Adam was like, "Games! Make believe! Fun!" and was persuasive enough so Wensley learned the value of play that carried over into his adulthood.

Sure, he still acts twice his age sometimes in his personal life but you get him in a costume and shove him onstage and he'll pretend he's a Mayan warrior if that's what's called for.

Yep. Still trying to get Q and Mycroft to be interesting. It's sort of working. I've decided to do a bare minimum of plot and keep it about how they view each other as biggest brother and littlest brother.i find Q gets quite childish when just with Mycroft, like falling into an old habit of viewing Mycroft as the Person Who Takes Care of Things. It's kind of cute.

t's probably particularly rankling since right now these small humans are completely useless to Sherlock directly. So it feels like wasted HD space.

He vaguely understands that they are important to people he needs for important to him things, so there is logic in trying to accommodate them. But it still took a whole month to decide what to delete in order to input Abby's name. Now she has a little closet in John's room in the memory palace.

I think a lot of actors are like that, actually. It amuses me how Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch are these intelligent, well-spoke, erudite gentleman who are also five years old.

I like the idea of Q fully embracing his youngest child status at times.

I'm actually really curious myself what got deleted. The next time John makes fun of Sherlock for not knowing the word for what makes things fall to the ground, he can tell John he has Abby to thank for that.

Now she has a little closet in John's room in the memory palace.

Aww! That almost makes the ridiculousness of a Mind Palace from HoB worth it.

I basically threw Ben Whishaw and Tom Hiddleston into a blender and made that Jeremy's life.

I think Q and Mycroft helped each other through Siger's death by Mycroft taking on a parental role and Q letting him, thus providing him with a chance to be useful. Whereas Sherlock just exploded and was unmanageable and resentful at Mycroft trying to 'replace' him.

His knowledge of obscure Russian philosophic principles is slowly dwindling as she gets older. He decided her name was probably information he would be using more frequently.

Aww! That almost makes the ridiculousness of a Mind Palace from HoB worth it.

I'd love to know what it actually looks like in there, I think because my colour synesthesia is so dominant that I'd like to know if he uses colour to organize things. Like, if I were doing it, it would be a room painted in the colour of John, and filled with photos of Stuff about John.

Oh, Sherlock. I'd give you a hug but I know you'd hate that.

Good triaging of information.
