No but it would have been SO EASY to make Harry Watson a boy. No one would have questioned it, Sherlock’s assumption was completely valid. But they had John smash Sherlock’s heteronormative assumption on purpose, and by doing that, they also opened up viewer’s eyes to…

Ginger and Not Rude Answer:
Many thanks, friend. Okay, here we go (Layton in italics and Sherlock normal):
1. The first character I first fell in love with
Professor Layton. It was him as soon as the game started. I just gave my heart over to the him and the game. Flora was probably second.
For Sherlock…err…I love everyone but when I saw Mycroft (even if I didn’t know he was Mycroft at the time) I just ajklajfkfj;lbjwroh so much sass
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
As much as I find him annoying…Luke. I kinda love to be irritated by him and the game’s need him
Mooolllllyyyyyyy. I didn’t know how much important she’d become and the more she did the happier I got :)
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
Randall annoyed me sometimes.
Probably cause he didn’t get with Layton. On the whole I like him though…erm…I’m certain there must be someone I really don’t like somewhere…
I try to like Bill Wiggins, and sometimes I do, but he just didn’t quite fit for me. When he kept doing more I was a bit frustrated.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
Who do people hate in the Layton fandom? I’ve seen some stuff about Flora Reinhold who pretty much stole my heart instantly and I got excited whenever I saw her so I got pissed off when I read some hate. It’s sad but she felt like a friend to me when I was younger and played Curious Village for the first time and she was remarkably normal for her messed up situation.
This is a difficult one because ideas of characters change a lot in the fandom. Once upon a time I would have said Anderson, but he’s loved now. I guess I’ll have to go with Mary Morstan, because I do really like her and I was shocked when casual viewers like my auntie said they hated her.
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
Haha the only person I can think of is Aldus who’s long explanation of the zooming thing made me want to cry as I played Miracle Mask and Azran Legacy as quickly as I could
With the little amount of episodes and characters, I’m finding this damn hard. Even if a character’s a massive dick and causes all sorts of problems, I’m still gonna love them.
6. The character I would totally smooch
I feel bad as the people I’m thinking of are in relationships or still in love and stuff…so a no to Martine and I guess Hershel too (like you wouldn’t). Dammit. Emmy then.
Martin Freeman tho…so John. Wait. Moriarty. One would mess with my otp and the other may get me killed. Fuck it, Mycroft then. Don’t judge me
7. The character I’d want to be like
But I also want to be dramatic, so Descole
I want to be a smart as Mycroft and keep people distanced away from me, but Hudders is the best.
8. The character I’d slap
Sebastian Wilkes. I found this question much easier than the others…
9. A pairing that I love
Oohh…not sure. Anton and Sophia made me cry for many days so them. Randall/Hershel?
Johnlock. I think that one was obvious.
10. A pairing that I despise
In the fandom and stuff, Layton/Luke isn’t pleasant. Can’t think of stuff in the games right now
Mycroft/Sherlock. People are free to ship whatever and fic writers I admire have written Holmescest, but I’m really not comfortable with it
