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?

CuriositySheryl was not a natural human being. The obvious thing that one would think of when I say this is her cleverness, and yes, it is true that her intelligence was far above what one might call average. However, that is not what I mean. Sheryl was, if anything, exactly what many people called her: a "Freak". She was not born from a true mother and father, but rather created from DNA samples and the skilled minds of several doctors at Baskerville Laboratories. The project, which had been created and overseen by one Dr. Stapleton, was viewed as the most advanced and successful attempt at cloning the world had ever seen, and as such was kept under tight wraps. For the first time in history, mankind had created a living, breathing, thinking exact replica of another human being.Curiosity3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, I say exact.
Truth be told, there was one small error in the project, but the final outcome was so incredible that all those involved had ultimately decided it to be inconsequential.
You see, Sheryl
The Commandments of Sherlock Holmes(Out of topic) Before I get into this, a note to all Sherlockians: Go check out Andrew Lane's Young Sherlock Holmes book series if you haven't already! Thank you.The Commandments of Sherlock Holmes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Reading up David Hume's texts on "Problems of Induction" inspired me to compile an essential list pertaining to systematic workings of (canon) Sherlock Holmes in my personal journal, and :iconwindmaedchen: encouraged me to share it here; so here we are.
Let's face it: I'm not a criminal investigator. Far from it! However, especially because I'm more of an artist, writer, literature lover and conceptionist, the philosophy of logic appeals to me as much as the philosophy of... well, everything! I've compiled the following list of self-applied codes of Sherlock Holmes -- a character imagined by the ingenious writer, physician and logician, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- from the canon, of certain axioms and theories to consider in contemplation and practice. These comma
HomecomingIrene's flat, wicker sandals slapped against the tarmac of the runway, her small suitcase rolling along noisily behind her. The air was humid and heavy, however the long black gown and head scarf she sported didn't much help matters.Homecoming3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The plane was already there, engines running, lights on, awaiting her arrival. Irene climbed the steps swiftly and gracefully and by the door was a smartly dressed Steward ready to meet her.
"Miss Adib," he greeted, gesturing for her to enter. She gave him a nod in reply and handed him her suitcase, which he took to the back.
Inside the plane was empty save for a few dark leather seats and some finely polished tables-a private jet. Irene sat by the window looking out across the runway.On the horizon were bright, glittering lights from the bustling towns making the stars in the sky look dim in comparison. She'd had a good run here, but she knew she had to return to London and get on with her life.
"Wine, Miss Adib?"
Irene gestured for the steward to place t
Those Almond-shaped Eyes....Yeees, I apologise for this and if you're not a fan of Sherlock's eyes then, this journal should be avoided because...looky what I have here:Those Almond-shaped Eyes....3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just...behold the beauty!
I mean, come on, just look at them! Sometimes they look really bright blue and then at other times, they look green! They are so lovely. And these damn eyes have been plaguing my mind for a few days now. The intensity of them is brilliant
Oh, and weirdly, there is a point to this journal other than Sherlock's eyes...well, sort of a point...
Me and my brother have been discussing a Skyrim and Sherlock crossover. Can you imagine it? Well, perhaps you don't need to, because at some point, I'm writing that shite!
I already have in my mind what Sherlock and John are in the game and...a vague idea of when they can meet and why. My brother's main character of the game shall also be making an appearance because the character is completely badass and I adore him! Not really sure when it shall be written and I have no idea

"The Guinness World Records has consistently listed Sherlock Holmes as the 'most portrayed movie character' with 75 actors playing the part in over 211 films. Holmes's first screen appearance was in the Mutoscope film Sherlock Holmes Baffled in 1900, albeit in a barely-recognisable form."
The Sherlock Holmes fandom is OVER 100 YEARS OLD. People celebrate his freaking birthday. Sherlockians should be proud.
I love how influential one fictional character has been on the world.

The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
