I’ve always found it pleasantly amusing and, to some degree, fascinating to wonder what various grown-up characters in books or TV must have been like as children.
Steven Spielberg’s Young Sherlock Holmes movie presented an interesting take on Sherlock Holmes’ childhood with theories to why Holmes didn’t date and how he first met Professor Moriarty.
I don’t know how many of you will remember these, but the Nancy Drew Notebooks was a spinoff from Carolyn Keene’s classic 1930s-1970s mystery series featuring Nancy, Bess, and George as modern-day nine-year olds. (There was even one story where Ned Nickerson, the boy who would grow up to be Nancy’s “special friend” and “favorite date”, was a suspect!)
So, today’s prompt will be as follows:
Prompt: Write a short scene that introduces your favorite TV show or book character’s younger self.
