What I've been up to (ver. fandom)
SMILING COOKIES OMFG

1. I've been playing Mass Effect, a sci-fi exploration/action game, and I just realized the male main character's name is JOHN SHEPHARD (I was playing with the female version of the main character). So I tried to make a hero that looked as much like Sheppard as I could but the face/hair options during character creation are pretty limited. But--hee. <3

2. I've watched all of Sherlock and I'm dying for more episodes. The second one was a doozy though, right? I spent most of it cringing. Why'd they have to go ruin a perfectly good series with that? Why? Why?

3. I got nostalgic for Invisible Man a couple days ago and tried to look up Chalie Ruocco's fic, but it got lost in the Geocities purge, I guess. Bums me out.

The Adventures of Shirley Holmes, by Johanna Watson
SMILING COOKIES OMFG

There is so much right with the idea of a Sherlock Holmes double genderswap, right? Sherlock Holmes's misogyny makes much more sense as Shirley Holmes's bluestocking/early feminist impulse; Shirley Holmes's skill for disguise comes from needing access to places women can't go.

Perhaps Shirley shares quarters with her dearest friend Johanna Watson, who, as a source of supplemental income, writes semi-fictionalized accounts of their adventures solving mysteries around London--with their names changed a bit, of course, and their genders switched because it would be scandalous otherwise. But perhaps Johanna, in the course of one of their mysteries, decided to accept Mr. Morstan's proposal; Shirley, of course, feels betrayed.



One of the things I love about the movie is that it's the male version of my favorite and least favorite story: "We Were Best Friends But Then She Got Interested In Boys And I Got Left Behind". I can't tell you how much I hate this story, and yet how tremendously compelling it is? And bringing it back to femslash/girl-BFFs makes it much more poignant for me. (Actually, the femslash version is even more depressing: We Were In Love But Then She Wanted To Get Married. To a Man." Blegh.)

It's hard to get across the sense of "Watson" without the mustache, haha, sorry. I gave Johanna fake sideburns using ringlets at least. (Note that Shirley is wearing the matching skirt to Johanna's jacket!)

NYC!

You! ♥ In NYC and related areas! Let's hang out (grab breakfast, lunch, dinner, picnic, comic store trip, whatever)! May 5th to 7th! I will draw you stuff. ( TдT)ノ

And then it's off to Toronto Comic Arts Festival. Oh man, it's a bus trip from hell from NYC to Toronto--three transfers in the middle of the night, and then straight to the con after that. There's another bus trip from Toronto to Buffalo that has me sleeping in an airport for six hours, which is actually better than what I was planning to do.

I learned my lesson this time--no more trying to combine NYC and Toronto into one mega-trip. This is some hollow-cheeked horror right here: щ(°Д°щ)

OK COME ON WHO ELSE THOUGHT THIS

THE LICKING



Starring Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes as Benton Fraser! Leo as Gladstone as Diefenbaker! And Jude Law as John Watson as Ray (whichever one you prefer)! (Or you can think of it as a Mountie AU, that's cool too.)

Oh god I just spent the whole morning drawing a joke that nobody is going to get.
