I would prefer it if you talented writers would please stop using the word (adverb? adjective?) "impossibly".

Well, it isn't very Sherlockian, is it? It isn't impossible, just very improbable, isn't it? I THINK IT WAS SHERLOCK HOLMES WHO SAID SO.

It's a very annoying word, that's why. It's not impossible if it exists, is my point! Whether Sherlocks eyelashes, the color of John's eyes, or someone's grandmother's fragile fingers or whatever, I don't care. You are overusing that word. Also I do not think it means what you think it means.

The phrases you are writing would be stronger without it. Possibly I should have mentioned that first.

I'm trying so hard to let my eyes just skip over that word when I see it, Sherlock fen, but it's just so damn ubiquitous.

Do all fandoms have these cultural oddities?
