I thought it was about time to keep up my reputation as a slash artist XD
Bwahah, I was browsing my folders and found this WIP vector art I started in spring of 2009. I don’t think I’m going to finish it….plus I find it is amusing as it is, with Caterpillar!Watson XD
Snarky bedtime reading.

About slash, subtext and innuendo
One of the (many :’D) things that bothers me about the RDJ films is how they seem to have all these ‘in your face’ gay jokes going on.
That’s not what really appeals to me as a Holmes/Watson slasher, especially in victorian versions. I always remember how my heart leaped when I first saw them walking arm in arm in the Granada series, or when I read how they showed caring in all the tiny ways in the canon stories. In the Ritchie film on the other hand, they clearly know about the slash appeal, and have made it into a source of farce-like jokes.
In the BBC it can be seen they know about it too…but in my opinion they did it better and more clever way by turning it all upside down. When previously in victorian times people would have whispered and wondered quietly about their relationship, now everyone just assumes they already are in one.
Heh, sorry. This was one of the things I needed to get out of my head. I have now decided not to go see the new Ritchie film as I really do not want to, despite all the Stephen Frys and slash slaspstick it might have. I promise not to say anything of it when the time comes, as I don’t think I should, having not seen it.(I might actually just avoid the internet alltogether.)
Meanwhile, I will await for the BBC Sherlock season 2 eagerly and might even try to force out some Holmes/Watson (or Sherlock/John) drawings ;D
First one of the request drawings is finished! Um.
This one is for Sadyna who asked for “hurt!Watson and Holmes is taking care of him and kicking ass”. But because I fail…I remembered it the other way around…and forgot my water colours at home when I was supposed to colour it.
SO HERE IT IS COLOURED WITH SUCKY CRAYONS OLOLOL. XDD Sorry Suski uhuhuhu. :’D
Mr Godfrey Norton and Mrs Irene Norton (née Adler)
My version of Spacefall’s drawing of the Nortons :)
The original and also spacefall’s version of one of my drawings can be found here.
I’ve been at his very elbow all the morning. You’ve seen me as an old lady, Watson. I was never more convincing. He actually picked up my parasol for me once. ‘By your leave, madame,’ said he–half-Italian, you know, and with the Southern graces of manner when in the mood, but a devil incarnate in the other mood. Life is full of whimsical happenings, Watson.
—- The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone (1921)
I stooped under the rude lintel, and there he sat upon a stone outside, his gray eyes dancing with amusement as they fell upon my astonished features. He was thin and worn, but clear and alert, his keen face bronzed by the sun and roughened by the wind. In his tweed suit and cloth cap he looked like any other tourist upon the moor, and he had contrived, with that catlike love of personal cleanliness which was one of his characteristics, that his chin should be as smooth and his linen as perfect as if he were in Baker Street.
—- The Hound of the Baskervilles (1902)
When I approached your room, I examined the window. You amused me by supposing that I was contemplating the possibility of someone having in broad daylight, under the eyes of all these opposite rooms, forced himself through it. Such an idea was absurd. I was measuring how tall a man would need to be in order to see, as he passed, what papers were on the central table. I am six feet high, and I could do it with an effort.
—-The Three Students (1904)
Couldn’t it already be a few months after the film so I can blissfully ignore them again.
*counts days to new series of BBC tho*
This is my newest one :)
Compared to the one I posted earlier…
This was less effort (I did it very quickly) but still is somehow more free and lively, I think :D
Oh and it’s a scene from the Speckled Band, with Holmes and Watson waiting in the dark room of Miss Stoner.
