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!

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!

'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.&

'I brought him a drink and then left-he likes to be left alone during work,' said the assistant, Veronica, about her husband, who was lying dead in his office. I don't understand how anyone could've got in here-I work at the desk outside...'
Lestrade looked around the office from the pictures on the walls to the desk. It bore the remain's of the man's lunch-Half-eaten sandwich, and a glass of water.
'Does he always drink water with ice?' Lestrade asked, looking at the glass which bore a few all-but-melted ice cubes.
'Yes. They've melted since then, but he likes his drink to stay cold.' She sighed. 'I wish I saw who went in...who did this...'
'Maybe they didn't have to be in the room,' Lestrade asked. He went on his phone, and asked that when the autopsy was done, they check for poison. Then he turned to the woman. 'Now,' he said, 'Maybe you wanna answer some questions, namely why you would want to kill your husband...'

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.

It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
I really don't know what my emotions are doing right now. I'm mostly happy but also surprised really big time. The cause of this state is that my story, The Ghost of You: http://trajektoria.deviantart.com/art/BBC-Sherlock-The-Ghost-of-You-333402385?q=gallery:trajektoria&qo=0&, got the first place in a Halloween competition held by Sherlocklovers: http://sherlocklovers.deviantart.com/.
I honestly and sincerely didn't expect that it will even get to the round two. But to my genuine surprise, it did. And it got even further. That's really awesome, amazing and just wow! I'm totally happy that you've enjoyed my story and thanks for all the votes, that really means a lot to me
I love to write and such success really gives me a boost in confidence and strenghtens my motivation to work even harder to perfect my English. Thanks again, everyone!

I didn't post anything in ages, because I simply couldn't focus on writing. There was too much noise and I couldn't hear myself think. And I had too many feels. But I plan to write like crazy in Germany (since I won't have anything better to do there anyway) and when the academic year starts, I'll be spending a lot of time in the library with my trusty netbook (Robercik) and work on my stories. I want really badly to write my Wholock, another chapter of Live and Let Die, something for the Halloween competition and a lot of other stuff.
And I haven't forgotten of :iconfeatherback: request. It's nearly finished and I'll post it when I return. I'm really sorry for the delay, I hope you'll like it despite everything.
Much ado about writingThat's just a little update on what's going on with my writings, especially fanfiction. I have a ridiculous amount of ideas regarding Sherlock and I'm working currently on a few stories. Post-Reichenbach ficlet and the sequel to "Bohemien" are finished, I just need to edit them and get rid of the mistakes. They should be available somewhere at the beginning of the next week, I hope. I also began to write the third part to "Like a Virgin" and actually I have an idea for the fourth part as well. Yay for inspiration! And I'd love to write something about Moriarty, but I don't know what yet.

Sooo my experiences on DeviantART began like 7 years ago, I didn't really have an account cus I knew I was terrible at art and I knew I'd get alot of laughs for drawing chibis with french fry limbs, so I just didn't bother using Deviantart for anything other than looking for fanart of my favorite animus and vidyagames.
Then in 2010, my bro made his DeviantART account and we started using that for scopin for art cus, heh, at that point we were able to look at *ahem* questionable content. But for me, questionable content gave me the sorts of references that normal artists would have a tougher time giving you, and really honestly, I watch most of the people I watch today because of the art. I don't really care what you draw, well I do but not in the way most of your fans probably do, if you made good art, you're amazing to me and can inspire me in many ways.
So anyway, let's fast forward two years, when I only

In light of the absolutely horrendous commission page DA started up which encourages artists to sell their work for literally pennies, let me talk about pricing artwork. Or more specifically, how I price my work.
This...guide? Advice? Thing? Highlights what I've learned about pricing throughout the last few years. I do not touch on the subject of beginner pricing, simply because there are no set guidelines for that and beginner pricing usually ends up being extremely subjective. This guide assumes that the reader is somewhat experienced in their craft and is looking for pointers on pricing. However I still highly encourage beginners to read! This is what pricing should be like, not mere pennies for hours upon hours of work. This also focuses on crafts and sewing but a lot of it is s

With that, you have no idea how unfathomably humbled I am at the fact that there are that many people out there who have taken an interest in my work here on deviant art as well as on the blog. Again Thank You!!
So to commemorate this occasion I've decided to give back to the community which has been good to me with my set of 1:1 scaled, ready to use RWBY Weapon Drawings of the props I've made to date.
In this download you will find a number of PDF's that you may print out and use with whatever Propmaking technique you are comfortable with, to bring into this world a Crescent Rose, Myrtenaster or Gambol shroud of your own.
So again Thank You! and I hope these will be of use and hope you out there

So the quality of the product they are selling is definitely not represented by tho
