(all through the week, there will be Share the Sherlock Love. For more information, see here: http://love-sherlock-holmes.deviantart.com/journal/IMPORTANT-Share-the-Sherlock-Love-313621554)
STARTING NOW: A chain-story. Since we are technically a BBC Sherlock fan group (or ended up that way) I'm going to ask that we keep it BBC. That means Sherlock and John, not Holmes and Watson. Also, for the sake of everyone, keep it relatively slash free. So no sex or anything. They can hug, but anything over that line is a bit much. Here's how this works: http://rowlingson39.deviantart.com/art/Chain-Letter-information-314039255
It's been STARTED! To All those involved: THERE IS A NEW FOLDER FOR THE CHAIN STORY. PLEASE SUBMIT THEM IN ORDER. If the person before you has not submitted yet, do not put yours in!!!!!!!Please!
30 July—This will be Sherlock Holmes quiz day. The journal on that day will feature links to different Holmesian quizzes-whether it

My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made
AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?I've had that dream again.AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.
The stones of the roadway beneath its feet crumble and flutter in t

* Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky.
* The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever.
* Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought.
* The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks.

I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

FishGood Evening.Fish3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am sitting in a box.
It is 11:43pm. There are some fish bobbing about up near the ceiling. They are discussing Lev Vygotsky's Theory of Cognitive Development. They have been discussing for several years now, discussing and discussing and discussing, over and over again, they never shut up, not for one moment, just endless discussion, the same discussion again and again and again.
One day, they will be gone. One day, there will be silence, just a ceiling, no fish, no discussion, not even a whisper.
Where the fish will have gone, I cannot bring myself to say. I do not even particularly want to think about it, but I tell myself I must. Because only by thinking about where the fish will have gone will it exist for them to go there. Just like if I choose not to think about the fish, they will not be there, bobbing about up near the ceiling, but I cannot take that risk. I am the only hope they've got. Without me, they will be trapped in the darkness of non-existence, and whil

Hm, well it looks like Teloka couldn't submit her entry. Shame. I wanted to at least see one other person's take on my not-so-pure characters.
Already I've been getting ideas for the final round, though since I still don't know who I'm gonna fight, that part has yet to be written. The plot twists haven't ended yet either. Expect even more in this one.
I worked on a bit of the outtakes. Except I still don't have internet immediately available to me and forgot to back-up a couple voice clips while reformatting my old comp (such as wil's lines. Mind sending em to me again, Tino?) However, all of that is on hold. Because...

ROUND 0: New Management
-The voice heard in the very beginning is comedian Louis CK from his standup segment in his FK show "Louie"
-Right as I finished the rough draft, JerkDouglas informed me of the copyright music rules. Had I went with the original soundtrack, it woulda been from Panty&Stocking, F.E.A.R., Tekken 5, Modern Warfare 2 and Austrian Death Machine.
-The monkey plush's vision is a reference to the movie Predator.
ROUND 1: The Opening Gambit
-The original title woulda been a reference to a chess strategy mentioned in the MiB animated show. But I didn't know how to spell it, nor could I even confirm that it was a real tactic. I think it w

I have to say that I have been on a rollercoaster these past 2 years due to my Dad having 2 terminal cancers.

#3: If the power was out, the man never would have been able to use the cordless phone to call the police!

I find this will help me get better at drawing people, but I'll also be drawing a lot of people as dragons and birds (because that's what I do best). Haha don't expect too many full body pictures but I'll try because that wouldn't be very good of me not to get out of my comfort zone. I might even try coloring a picture or two that has Sherlock in them. It's going to be grand and for more information
