This is a simple fanart for an amazing Sherlock story called "A City on the Head of a Pin" by Mad Maudlin. You can read it here:… It's a short gen story that I highly recommend - it's absolutely lovely and beautiful and it has imaginary!wings but is completely canon and believable and trust me you will want to art it too!

Haha, it's not Supernatural-related. I actually haven't seen that show yet!

My vision was right XD When I saw the little icon scrolling I was "OMG!!! SHERLOCK!!" I scrolled back up slowly just so I could click it. Thanks for this amazing piece!

Thanks for this--browsing Mad Maudlin's fics has been a pleasure, and you took me there. ^_^
Also, the picture itself is quite nice.

"You're ordinary--you're on the side of the angels."
"Oh, I may be on the side of the angels...but don't think for one second that I am one of them."

:) This art just reminds me of a quote. <3
