I did a quick digital type treatment/fanart for [personal profile] astolat's Thor fic Athelas! I just really wanted to see Thor as a frost giant.

Okay, back to work!

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!)

Under an LJ-cut because it is slightly NSFW. )

I know I said the Sherlock Holmes movie came off as The Gay Love Story of Holmes and Watson, but upon reflection, Sherlock Holmes '09 could also be the Depressing Comedy of Holmes Learning To Let Go Of His BFF Watson Who Is Growing Up And Getting Married or the Depressing Tragedy of Holmes and Watson In Tempestuous Secret Gay Victorian Love And Denial. Also depressing: They Were Once In Love But Now It's Over And They Have To Split Custody Of The Dog And Holmes Is Just Being A Jealous Ex And Needs To Get The Fuck Over It Already. Though it might be a very uplifting sort of story if you see it from Watson's point of view: Watson Breaks Free From A Co-Dependent Relationship With Holmes, Finally, Thank God.

That's a lot of capital letters.

I have returned bearing vastly improved drawing skills learned from My Other Life (which is going great, by the way). My friend's been trying to get me into Supernatural, which inexplicably made me feel an intense wave of nostalgia for Due South instead. So here's RayK and Fraser, my One True OTP (One True One True Pairing?):

My thesis is due in a week and a half (oh god! and I have to restructure the whole thing!) and I have been reading people's crackpot theories about prosody nonstop. I NEEDED A BREAK. So I took one and quickly drew/colored this for [ profile] cesperanza who asked for John in his pink paisley shirt:

Possible mild spoilers for OK Computer by Speranza??? )

Story is here!

I will definitely get my [ profile] paintedspires entry in soon, btw. ♥ The thesis is due May 2nd, so I should be semi-free after that.

(The success of this picture kind of depends on your LJ friend's page background, since it's a transparent PNG, so I hope it doesn't look too weird. If it does, just, um, click on the comments link and it'll take you to the comment page, which is a default style? D:)

I present to you Girl's Poker Night... except with the boys... except they're girls:
