Dust and Shadow, by Lyndsay Faye
This book pits Holmes against Jack the Ripper. It's very well-written and in character. Exciting and fun. It's interesting to see Holmes collide with one of the most-well known events of his time.
The Beekeeper's Apprentice' (Mary Russel #1) by Laurie R King
Features a retired Sherlock Holmes meeting a teenaged girl and the two team up. It is a very good story and series, but I do have qualms with alot of it. Still, very worth the read!

Detective Inspector Lestrade entered the dark cottage and spied the distraught man Frank Lloyd sitting on his sofa by candle light. A uniformed Officer passed by and assured Lestrade that they would have the power on in an instant. Lestrade then approached the man and asked for his story.
“My wife is away on a business trip, so I'm here alone for the week,' Lloyd said. 'I was watching an old movie when the lights suddenly went out. Just then, I heard some strange noises coming from the bedroom. I got up to investigate when all of a sudden someone came flying out of the bedroom in such a rush that they knocked me down. Although I did not get a look at the offender, I did hear them open the front door and run out.. At this point, I crawled over to my desk and picked up my phone to call you people. When I got off the phone I lit some candles and checked the bedroom, that’s when I saw that my wife's diamond r

SoW Art ContestABOUT SONG OF WARSoW Art Contest6 years ago in Personal More Like This
Song of war is a one on one card based dueling game for the iPhone and iTouch (and maybe a facebook app depending on how well it does). Not to be confused with card games like Magic the Gathering or Yo-Gi-Oh, Song of War uses the cards as a inventory of items. The player will be able to customize there deck to there play style, so if you like a lot of swords in your deck you will be rewarded for doing so with a effectiveness bonus to swords. This applies to all the different kinds of cards, and we have alot of different weapons to chose from. If you wanna be a hammer wielding healer, then go for it. If you to inflict devastating curses on your opponents then hit them hard with magic, then go nuts. For those just starting out it's easy to jump into, and for those that know the systems in and outs can create a deck that can obliterate their opposition! Something else that sets Song of War apart from other card based battle game is the cards them selves. The more

So next time you are in somewhere that has those questionnaire cards that say 'Tell us what you think' (in cafes and shops), fill one out for your favourites character from a film. So put their name and supposed address, and in the comments bit write something you can imagines them saying. Extra points if you can do it in their handwriting, and extra special sparkly points for if you draw a little doodle to do with the character.
TAKE A PHOTO put it in the box, and post the photo here on dA! I may even do something ridiculous like... draw you a picture of your choice or promote your artwork like crazy, who knows ^A^
Pleasey please do it if you see one of those questionnaires, I will too!

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

You want to make plushies? Tips and resources listEdit: added a part about fabric selection before 'where do I start'!You want to make plushies? Tips and resources list3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ever since I posted Wolf Link and Midna I've been getting an influx of messages asking me to teach, reveal my secrets, take people under my wing, and so on. The sad thing is I can't spend all that much time one on one with everybody asking me to teach them. So I've decided to put together this massive block of text, relating some of my personal experience in plush making and listing off all my resources at the bottom. This will cover the very basics of plush and pattern making so if you are completely new to plush making this is for you, if you're not and you're just looking for resources skip to the bottom. I hope this will be helpful to someone!
First off, the reality. The big secret. The key to becoming a good plush artist is...
I can already feel the glares and exasperation but hear me out first.
One thing I've noticed with a lot of the messages I got were that a lot of people were scared of screwing up.

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique
World Building Part 2 - MapsNow that you have an outline made, it is a good idea to get a clear picture of what your world looks like. This helps you during the writing process by having a quick reference in order to keep place locations clear. And it definitely helps with consistency.World Building Part 2 - Maps4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For a basic map starter i suggest one of the main planet you story takes place on (if it is not earth) These are the things you should think about when making a map:
1. Decide if you are going to draw a map to scale or not to scale. If your map is basically going to just be a visual companion to your story then you probably dont need to delve into precise measurements. If distances are important, then your best bet is to draw a scaled map and precisely measure all your land masses. For a map to scale, choose your scale (1 inch = 1 mile or something like that). Also choose the direction for North (remember, not all maps denote north as pointing upwards!).
2. Legend - can you tell a city from a village? Figure out what symbols

I've never even dreamed that so many people would actually enjoy my writings. The writings of a girl who can barely speak English and who always thinks that she's not good enough. You have no idea how much this all means to me and how your feedback and support helped me to improve myself.
So big thanks for all of you!
I've also opened a donation, it's right below this journal. I'm not collecting points for a premium membership, some llama accessories or stuff like that. Nope.
