Am I the current king of England?You do know we don’t have a king…?
He’s the king of crime solving ;)
For the first time ever I quite like how the hair turned out even though it took ages to draw, as did the coat. I really dislike drawing that Belstaff.
The crown is referenced from a few photos of a Hiddleston photoshoot as I wanted a quite simple crown to fit with the mood.
Dedicated to Cumberbum because she’s great!
….art….. dedicated to me!?!?!??!? *FLIES INTO THE SUN*
I’m too sick to do anything proper. I’m making up some asks. I’ll answer any of these if you want — but better yet, reblog and answer them yourself! Consider this me, asking you all these things!
- How old were you when you read your first fanfic? What fandom was it in?
- How old were you when you wrote your first fanfic? What fandom was it in?
- How has your attitude toward fanfic changed over time?
- Are you always a shipper (or not a shipper)? Do you have a consistent gender pairing preference (e.g., M/M)?
- Do you care what the source media creators think of fanworks? How does it affect your fandom participation?
- Do you care what the authorial intent was behind the source media? How does it affect your fandom participation?
- Do you tend to be multifandom? Multishipper?
- Can you tell what it is that makes you participate in fandom rather than just enjoying the source media?
- What was the first fanfic you read for Sherlock?
- What was the first fanfic you wrote for Sherlock?
(If you’re an artist, meta-writer, gifset-maker, etc., feel free to modify these questions accordingly; if you’re not in the Sherlock fandom, modify the fandom-specific questions accordingly! Everyone who wants to play can play.)
1. I was reading a series by JR Ward, The Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and lots of fanfic because Ward took a very long time getting a popular ship together. I’m not going to say how old I was, just that I was very much an adult. The next after that was in the HP fandom, a Drarry fic: One Harry Potter, Please by Faithwood.
2. Again, no comment on the age thing, but my first fic was for the BDB fandom.
3. At first I was completely against AU fanfic. Basically, I thought, ‘I’m reading these things to satisfy my need for my OTP to get together in their own universe. WHY would I want them anywhere else?? ERM. Obviously, I’ve done a complete turnabout.
4. Always a shipper? If you mean do I see ships in any show I watch, no, I guess not. But I’m pretty attached and vehement about the ones I have, I suppose. I mainly ship M/M pairings, though there are a couple of F/M pairings I like, too. Haven’t found a F/F pairing I like yet, but I am open to that, too.
5. At first I did. Ward was/is pretty outspoken against it, and threatened lawsuits and such, so I started out pretty nervous as a writer, but was compelled to continue anyway. Now, I don’t really care what the source media thinks. It’d be nice if they respected fanartists of any type a little more, but….pffft. Their opinions aren’t going to stop me.
6. Authorial intent. As in…does it matter to me whether they mean to put subtext messages about my ships? No. And it doesn’t.
7. Multifandom? I suppose so. Sherlock, Star Trek (both TOS and reboot incarnations), Harry Potter, and more I dabble in here and there. Multishipper? I ship many pairs (thus my URL), but I typically don’t ship one character with more than one other character—i.e. I only ship John and Sherlock, but not Sherlock or John with anyone else. Not against them (ships other than my own) though.
8. I participate in the fandom because I enjoy most aspects of it. I like the endless creativity I see all the time in all sorts of formats. I enjoy people discuss and dissect damn near everything about every moment of every show or movie. I like that there are others like me who enjoy something as much as I do.
9. The Progress of Sherlock Holmes, by ivyblossom. I had just watched Sherlock Holmes with RDJ, and started reading it because, well, I’ve had a crush on RDJ since I was 15. Anyhoo-I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out WHY Sherlock had a cell phone and was in modern London. I loved it anyway, and have read it several times since. I didn’t even KNOW there was a Sherlock BBC until then. Even then, I didn’t watch it right away. It was actually some random tweet from Alton Brown about being excited for Series 2 that got me to watch it!
10. The first fic I wrote was The Hardest Steps of All. I had to reconcile my feelings about Reichenbach, just like everyone else.
"Then nothing can replace it… or him."
Captain Kirk + outfits
The fact that this exists makes me question if I’ve been wrong about god all these years.
