(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!

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!

Case #3Team Moriarty now has 25 points! Someone step up for the others!Case #3 in Personal More Like This
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

'Thank heavens you’re here!” exclaimed 17 year old Rob, the clerk at the little corner convenience store. Detective Brown had come in to avoid the rain and get a coffee.
The little store was warm and cozy despite the driving rain outside, and I was pleased to note that Robbie was obviously doing a good job of keeping the place neat and tidy. The floor was spotless, and all the shelves were neatly arranged.
“What’s wrong, Rob?” Brown asked.
“You just missed them!” the young boy told him. “Two men just burst into here, held a gun on me and demanded all the money in the register. Mr. Loan says if that happens, we should just give it over, so I did, but as soon as they were gone, I ran outside to see if I could get their license number, or at least see the car they were driving.&

There will be a few as we go throughout the day.
So, here we go:
1. 'Mr. Lal was having an early walk. He had just crossed a bridge when he saw a crowd of people. Rushing to them, he found that they were crowding around a dead woman. Lal was a famous detective. He took the case and started his investigation. The woman seemed to have come for an early walk, too. Seeing her handbag lying nearby, Lal ruffled through it and found what he wanted - her identity card. Her name was Lakshmi, and her house was about a ten minute drive away. Her number was also written on her card. Lal phoned the given number.
"Is this Lakshmi's residence?"
"Yes. And I am her husband. What do you want?"
"Sir, your wife is dead."

If you want to check out the puzzles still, they are still up.
Answers were as follows:
#1: Lal never said where he was. How would the man know unless he was the killer?
#2: If Rob had run out in the rain, the floor would be wet. It was mentioned that the floor was clean!
#3: If the power was out, the man never would have been able to use the cordless phone to call the police!
#4: The ice hadn't melted in the glasses, so how could the boyfriend have been gone 2 hours?

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?

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser
Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural WorldSince human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest – until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural World in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".
The spam can attack didn't end there, Pilot's job for today was hiding behind building ruins and throwing the spam cans at me at random intervals with yells of "INCREASE YOUR GENITAL SIZE!", "RUSSIAN BRIDE LOVES YOU" and "I AM NIGERIAN PRINCE WITH 56 BILL

She was a goddess in the machine, our search engine.
We used her to collect and share knowledge and in return she had started to use us as her processors. It was an unexpected transition and it took a long time, thus I failed to notice it, failed to stop it. The new organism had come to life in which we were only neuron cells of her massive mind, that spanned continents.
Humanity no longer had a chance to survive in it's current state. We had poisoned the oceans, we had scorched the earth and blackened the sky in our quest for power.
The world we knew was dying. I knew that this decade would be our last. The city would fall to the Zone, sooner or later.
Research notes from the last report of Charles Snippy terrified me greatly. They had found something horrid in the Dead Zone. Something that killed them all.

PE: Traditional ShadingTraditional ShadingPE: Traditional Shading in Art Features More Like This
Hello. This is iDJPanda on the topic of shading!
When I usually start into the shading process of something, I always struggle to see which kind of technique I can use to give the piece of art the type of wow that I want. But just like anything, there are MANY ways to do it! This can help you use different shading techniques for different textures. I'm gonna give you a few different ways you can shade (Try to shake it up! ). If you have any other ways you shade, please feel free to tell me!
One of my favorite, in this technique of shading, you go against what all elementary teachers told you. You scribble! When you shade like this, you'll come out with something that looks like this.
Using circular motions, you generate different shades. Spending more time, swirling makes the certain areas you want darker, and the less you swirl makes the other areas lighter.

What is considered copyright infringement?Due to the growing concern...I have had a lot of people ask me what is considered piracy and what isn't. Things to consider is the Millenium Copy Right act and fair use laws. Funny enough a while back I would have liked a law like SOPA because it would hold a site liable for letting its users plagiarize my artwork. E.g a while back a group on Facebook took my work and refused to credit me, I contacted Facebook and they said they would remove the work, then the admins of the page said they would change it to a private setting so I couldn't access the site and see if my work was still being used without my permission. SOPA would have been useful but now I see that with such power as to hold an entire site liable for a bunch of users actions is dangerous because it can be abused. Also how would you feel if someone like me closed down a huge public web site because a few where taking something of mine? I have learned not to care when my stuff is uploaded elsewhere and shared. I don't mindWhat is considered copyright infringement? in Deviant Events More Like This

Also I bought these sour lollies....from the UK store... I dunno how they like their lollies in the UK but I swear those things are coated in battery acid. They are so sour, they actually burnt off a good deal of my taste buds and now there is just raw smooth patches all over my tongue. Needless to say I have been frantically searching for stuff online about taste buds growing back and luckily they do seem to grow back. :iconotlplz: Now I will just have to wait and see....

I have had a wonder and found a few that I find very amusing or frustrating...
WHEN LAWSUITS ATTACK!!!
And now for our favourite! Those folk from the RIAA and MPAA! I am now convinced the're not an organization...they are actually a circus.
You don't have to worry about being sued for copyright infringement...because they will try sue you regardless .
Suggestions?My darlings! I am sure you are not all internet hermits like me...so may I ask a favour? can you recommend any good books for me to read? I have only read a handful in my life....sadly.Suggestions? in Personal More Like This
I love supernatural/none supernatural horror, or medieval historical/ medieval fantasy or demony-middle earth type books. Also quite keen on zombie apocalypse/ pandemic survival style too. If you know any that fit into these categories I would be grateful if you could share?
If you know a really really good book that doesn't fit into any of these? I would still be interested in having a look at it.
I am sad..I read a book on my Japan trip and I can't remember the name :iconcryforeverplz:. Its about a boy who could shape shift and use magic, I think his name was Tern and there was a story in the book about him rescuing a girl enslaved by a wizard who was obsessed with quicksilver? if you know the name of this book I will love you forever and ever. The book pretty much covers his life from birth to death.
