I need to get to know the place again, breathe it in –
feel every quiver of its beating heart. x
Sherlockian, polyglot, sometime tulpamancer. Come in and stay a while.
Well worth a watch if you haven’t already. Stephen Fry turns up as a fishmonger & it has Peter Capaldi in it, if that can tempt you any more!!

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
This is so incredibly precious, this actually makes me tear up with happiness!
So, while working on the last edit I posted, I got inspiration for ice!fawnlock, since the Sherlock base was B&W and the background picture I used was wintry/painted white lines on his face.
This was a real pain to make- I used two of this pic (not mine) and flipped the one to give the basic white lines on his face, then I had to paint for a looooong time to get rid of the branch on his face. Had to repaint over some of the lines, too, but I think they look mostly the same color/thickness. As a result of all the painting I think the top half of his face is smoother than the bottom, but oh well. I’m gonna leave it here, cause between this version and the previous version that I trashed because it was going horribly, I’ve probably spent four hours on this?
Spent ages on the freckles by accident. XD I’m still not 100% happy with them, but they’re alright. I need more brushes, I think. >.>
In any case, I hope people find this pleasing to look at. :)
new background is this pic (also not mine)
It is John’s habit to pull the door closed by the knocker, making it hang to the left. But notice that Sherlock’s practice is not to adjust the knocker to the left, but to the right. He’s annoyed to see that Mycroft has straightened it. To Sherlock’s mind, it should hang to the right if he is at home with John, or to the left, if John is out.
