I'm finishing my tea by lily-fox I'm finishing my tea by lily-fox
John is so beleaguered and adorable.

No, Sherlock, the prospect of a cold corpse in the alley doesnít consistently thrill me to pieces. Sometimes I just want to sit and drink my tea and read my gossip rags, maybe eat a brie-and-butter sandwich in peace without having to move aside a jar of eyeballs. ITíS THE LITTLE THINGS.




props: I don't even know who to credit anymore. Conan Doyle, BBC, Martin Freeman's face, etc.

Aaaawhawhawhaaaaaw, that is just absolutely perfect. The artwork is wonderful, you've captured him perfectly. And the inner monologue... I laughed and made sappy noises all at once :heart:

"Martin Freeman's face" XD
This is adorable, love the way you've done his nose. He has the best nose. I like the white lines of his shirt as well.
Ugh, I aspire so much to be you! My art never looks like this, even in college. lol

We've got brie here in Hawaii. I'm sure they've got brie in the UK.

DUDE. THAT NOSE. I love it! It gives him a lot of character you know?

Anyway it's times like these when I'm pleased that DA shows the recent posts because your disneyworld submit lead me to this. [Not that I didn't like that one, I just get embaressed by such bizzare things that I couldn't handle it, for all that it really was wonderful].

So yeah. I love it when he wears this top, even though it really only happens once. And your commentary really brought it all together. So yeah I'm pleased and I wanted to let you know.

Ha ha, oh God. I woke up to so many notifications. The comic was just a ridiculous lark, I hope I don't get too much crap for it. ;D

I'm glad you like this! And yeah, I think in this fandom we get attached to certain articles of their clothes because, I mean damn, when you only get three episodes a season, ain't a lot of variety in the wardrobe!

Nah everyone'll love it! It's silly but great. The high five was my favorite.

I agree with you. Plus it was just so great how could you not love the little stripies?

I love that it simultaneously [to me] looks like Watson and Bilbo.

Seriously. The nose just reminds me of the cartoon hobbit.

ADORABLE.

ALLL THE FEELS for John. I love him ever so much. And he DOES need to have a little time to just drink his tea in peace without having Sherlock pluck strands of his hair to use in an experiment.

Were I in John's place, I would too. I mean, love Sherlock, and 99% of the time, I imagine John is somewhere on a scale that ranges between 'tolerant' and 'thrilled' to have Sherlock's hands on him, but there are times when you just need caffeine FIRST. I imagine this made Sherlock sulk on the couch for an hour, but it all worked out because by the time he was done, John had finished breakfast and even had time to write an email back to Harry, one letter at a time. And then he was ready to surrender a few pinches of epidermis for an experiment.

In my mind, John just became the Hamburglar gone legit. Sorry, I know that's not where you were going at all with this, but... my brain does things without my permission, and now I will never be able to unsee HamburglarJohn.

Okay, you are totally not the only one who sees convict stripes. A little slimmer and they'd be sort of Frenchy, but big stripes like that? Totally jailbird.

I made a big blob of blue, then erased using a nice media brush. Or did you mean the lines, like the white lines?

He does! It's part Martin Freeman, it's part John Watson's caring and patient nature.
We need to give him one huge fandom cuddle. This needs to happen.
