SH1920's - Sherlock Holmes by KaitousBlackWings SH1920's - Sherlock Holmes by KaitousBlackWings
Yes sir, I DID put it in the Original category--and you can't stop me! This is NOT fan-art! This is NOT for a fan-fiction! This story is my own idea with my own characters based on the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The new BBC show isn't fan-fiction, right?!

Ah, the incorrigible Sherlock Holmes. II ) He has a slightly different personality in my head from either BBC!Sherlock or ACD!Holmes, whom I tried to make him a combination of but don't think I did very well on. :/ He was originally meant to have swept-back hair with one part that would stay swept-back (a combination of their hair-styles), but it didn't work. So I went with: "It's messy because he doesn't care" and then tried to make it not look curly like Cumberbatch's.

He has a long and fantastic coat like BBC!Sherlock, but also a bit like ACD!Holmes. He wears a scarf, because scarves are cool. His other color scheme is supposed to be a bit more ACD than BBC, with warmer colors. His coat is supposed to have Art Deco-themed patterns on it, but I can't draw it at all. : (

Sherlock Holmes is a young chemist living and employed at Police Chief Lestrade's speakeasy, 221B. His official job is to separate toxins from imported booze so that it's safe for the customers to drink, but technically he also handles cases out of the polices' depth and cases brought by individual clients who find their problems either too complicated or too delicate for the police. Sherlock ran to college to avoid the draft, then immediately dropped out when the coast was clear. He can be a bit petulant, a bit over excited at very inappropriate things, loves the violin, is almost impossible to control, clearly a sociopath, but most of all unequivocally brilliant. Sherlock isn't really crazy, he's just too damn smart for his own damn good and he starts to crack a little when bored. Sherlock's one college thesis, on The Science of Deduction made him a star of the school, but his impossible personality and general disdain helped balance his fame with his infamy. Sherlock is quite fond of John Watson, for being honest, impressed by Sherlock, and intelligent. John does manage to bring down a little bit of Sherlock's crazy when he starts stagnating and also helps him take less drugs, because I've changed my mind and Sherlock's going to take drugs after all.


Hopefully there'll be some Moriarty, Sebastian Moran (who is being brought in purely because I had a great design for him and nothing else), and Lestrade, so I can talk more about Prohibition turf wars and 221B. : D

Okay, so I finally read through your whole description (What and idiot, right?) and I'm wondering if this means that your story will be set in the US.

Haha XDDDD No worries!

Yes, it will. : ) I'd prefer it took place in some imaginary 1920's Prohibition-era London, but I don't know even Modern London well enough to make that up. XDDDD;;; So, yes, it will take place in an unnamed big city somewhere in the American North East that is totally not New York City. : P

Yeah, it does actually.
Great job.

I've been looking for someone to do a preview picture for my SH story. I would credit you of course, and there may or may not be a feature and other things involved.
Care to take it?

You can read the story first, and I promise I won't be offended if you don't want to. :)

I'm so glad to hear that! ^___^ I tried to copy a pattern I found online, but I didn't think I did too well.

Really? You'd offer that to me? ;______; <- is touched You might want to look through my gallery a bit first, just to make sure you actually want my style.... ((honestly not trying to plug--I'm serious about you knowing what you're asking. ^__^;;;;;)) But if you would still like me to, I'd be honored to. : )

I would definitely like to read the story first, though, I must admit. XDDD
