May I just point out: Mary Morstan is not an Original Female Character created by me. She is Dr. Watson's canonical first wife.

Are you getting grief over Mary?

But, the angst! It's the best part! It's the BIGGEST part! I'm confused by that. Not by people not knowing who Mary is, though, I guess; many don't seem to know who Irene actually is, either, which makes me facepalm.

*g* I read comments too quickly to notice errors, usually, and never bother to correct my own, so it's all good.

Eep! No! I am my very own, individual Claire. *g*

I've been asked that any number of times, actually. Including on F_W, so I'm quick to disassociate myself from all other Claires when it comes up. (I doubt that she would appreciate the connection, either. *g*)

No worries. It's been going on for years, but I like my name and would rather keep it and smile at the questions. :)

You are already published, aren't you? I thought? And I'm glad you're writing Sherlock, instead, as it benefits me. *g*

I hear you. I have an issue with deadlines--anything I'm having fun doing immediately becomes a chore if I have to get it done by a certain time. So there's that, plus health issues that I would need to deal with (if I even can) before I could consider being able to travel extensively, which one has to do in support of one's pro writing, apparently. So I plink away at my original things very slowly and have fun with fanfic (though I've had trouble finishing that, lately, too. *sigh*)

Thank you; we're working on it. I'm not a very patient patient, either. *g*

I'll be a force to be reckoned with! Rather than just an annoying buzzing sound in people's ears. :)

I think you're right, both about the writer thing and the selective canon thing. I think selectivity/ignorance of book canon is going to lead to a lot of this kind of misunderstanding, probably. I've never seen the RDJ movie (and don't plan to), but I think that's where some of the confusion might come from, too--I've heard it played a little fast and loose with canon, but those who haven't read the stories might not know that? Canon is going to be a tricksy thing in SH fandom, now.

So many fen seem to read nothing but fanfic. Which, I guess, means that they're reading something, so.

They have said that they took inspiration for the tone from the Rathbone movies and Mycroft from The Private Life, which I want to see, now. And also the one with dinosaurs. *g* (Not that they took inspiration from that one. How much fun would that be, though, considering the fanon? ;)
