HAVE I TOLD YOU RECENTLY HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU?
No? What do you mean, 'no'?
Well, I LOVE YOU ALL.
I log on today to find 37 new comment stacks, and I think 'That's quite a lot more than usual'.
Then I look at the front page.
On the '24 Hours' setting.
What do I see?
MY CHEEKS HURT FROM THE GRINNING.
AND THEN I CHECK THE REST OF MY MESSAGES.
I HAVE GOTTEN AN EXTRA 100 WATCHERS OVERNIGHT.
AND THE 'SHERLOCK HOLMES ICON PACK' HAS RECEIVED 761

YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST AND YOU ARE AWESOME AND MADE OF KITTENS.
(Unless you are allergic to kittens, which in that case, you are made of sprinkles.)
But, in all seriousness, I can't thank you enough. I tried very hard to reply to every comment, but I don't think I can personally thank every , so, to all you watchers, whether you watched me from the beginning, or have just started...
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

What do your characters give to you?We all know that we put countless hours of energy into creating our characters.What do your characters give to you?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We give them everything. We give them their identities, attitude, genetics, hobbies, wardrobes, relationships, surroundings--the whole works. But what do they give us in return?
Most people may say their characters give them back a sense of accomplishment. Something to do. Entertainment.
While my little darlings give me that, they give me so much more.
They give me ALL SORTS OF PRETTY FEELINGS and disgusting feelings I guess. They make me cry and they make me smile. I particularly listen to the way people freak out over characters in television shows on here and on tumblr mostly on tumblr and while I am no stranger to those sort of feelings, I feel that way about my characters, too! What's that, I hear? Reflections on Doctor Who or Supernatural or the Avengers that go something like MY FEELINGS OH GOD MY LIFE IS RUINED NO PRECIOUS BABBUS OH GOD I WILL NEVER MOVE FROM THIS FETAL POSITION IN THE CORNER OF MY
CONTEST TIME!!!!!Because we can. And I love holding these.CONTEST TIME!!!!!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
SO-The Theme for this contest is HALLOWEEN (because c'mon, who doesn't like Halloween?) You can go anywhere you like with this-kidlock trick or treating, John drags Sherlock to a Halloween party...etc.
The deadline for this contest will be midnight (EST) October 20th. (That way we can have 10 days for voting and show the entries on Halloween)
So that gives you a little over a month for this.
Any medium is allowed (includes fanfiction, so if you write, write away.
must be only Sherlock. No crossovers. (unless one of the characters is dressed as say the Doctor or someone)
the contest will be open for judging by group members as soon as the folder closes.
ONLY ONE entry per person. If you submit more than one, both will be taken out.
Since we now have a facebook group, I am considering the option of also letting our facebook fans vote. If anyone is
My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.
The Travelling Lemon: Writers' EditionThis randomly came to me. Yay Cabin Pressure!The Travelling Lemon: Writers' Edition3 years ago in Personal More Like This
HOW TO PLAY:
Two players- both must be writers. The first "hider" lists four to seven stories(/chapters) from his/her gallery (depending on length, preferrably fanfictions) that the lemon may be hidden in. Beforehand, of course, he/she has randomly placed the word "lemon" in one of them (NOTE: ONE AND ONLY ONE OF THEM). This can be accomplished by hitting the EDIT>EDIT TEXT buttons on the deviation. The seeker must then look through the stories, until he/she finds the lemon. He/she will then post a comment on whichever deviation the lemon was found in, in this format:
"[sentence/phrase where the lemon was found]" [list of his/her stories where the lemon is hidden]
Taunting sentences such as, "The lemon is in play" may also be added. If the seeker cannot find the lemon, then he/she must admit defeat.
Place the lemon thick in the plot where your opponent will be too busy anxiously reading to notice it

Shout It Outs.

"Ah, the world-weariness and pain what can only come from the old soul of a middle school furry." ~ TikTak
These wonderfully color-coordinated windows into the very soul of DeviantArt are guaranteed to warm the cockles of my heart every time one trembles its way onto my screen. Black backgrounds, Comic Sans, and tormented critters pave the way to expressing things you previously thought you could never shout out.
I pour over the deepest, darkest secrets you reveal to the world, like "I'm really skinny but I still call myself fat" and, "I secretly hate people" and, "My mom doesn't know I self-harm, unless she uses the internet" and, "Friends are useless" and, "I feel so ignore by you" and, "I'm mean to my friends" and, "Fuck you" and, "Why do people hate me??" and "I'm not Asian".

Why I asked you all to gather together...Why I asked you all to gather together...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I didn't realise you had asked me all to gather together.
Topics of discussion for today:
Sherlock S3 Tease Words: Rat, Wedding and Bow.
Asylum of the Daleks (and Doctor Who Series 7 in general)
Also 'Pond Life', upcoming Doctor Who mini-series
The 'Tease Words' released by Moffat are, I assume, if the last series was anything to go on
AND IT WAS, the words on which the following series will be based. For instance, the Tease Words for Series 2 were, I believe, the Woman, the Hound and Fall. Rat, Wedding and Bow are all we have to go on for Series 3 so far.
Asylum of the Daleks is the name of episode 1 of Series 7 of Doctor Who, airing on the 1st of September.
Pond Life is going to be like a mini spin-off of Doctor Who, with shorter episodes on the life of the Ponds without the Doctor. I think. I'll admit this bullet point isn't as well researched as the others.
Care to discuss?

Just a little update, for those of you who are interested.
Halfway through week two of Work Experience. It's really fun - I'm in a digital print shop, and it's really tiring, but I'm learning a lot. It is really eating into my time, though. Hence the lack of drawings.
And when I'm not working, I'm most likely at home watching Woman in Black.
Goodness, I thought it was terrifying in a cinema full of people. Then I watched it at home, with all of the lights out and I thought I was going to die. Really amazing film; I love a good ghost story.
Now I've got a couple of things on upcoming art.
I hate calling it 'art'. It's not really art, but it'll do as a label.
I'm probably going to post a photo I took recently, just to see what you think, and to get some feedback. Your comments are always so helpful, so I'll open it up

I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.
Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.
...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.
She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.
What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?
...So this was to be my death.
