HMS Johnlock

fuckyeahshezza:

Okay it’s not that Sherlock S1 and 2 weren’t full of Johnlock moments, it’s that we didn’t know if it had a chance of being realised until series 3.

Like that moment in ASiP where John asks if Sherlock has a girlfriend or a boyfriend (twice. He asks about a boyfriend twice) and then “it’s all fine”. That was pretty blatant but we didn’t know if that was something the writers were intending on actualising. There are many many many moments like that in S1 and 2 but S3 was the game changer that lets us look at those previous moments with new light shed on it.

If you know who I am, then you know who he is [because there’s no Sherlock Holmes without John Watson, and there’s no John Watson without Sherlock Holmes].

Let’s talk about murder.

Chapters: 16/16
Fandom: House M.D., Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, Irene Adler/Sherlock Holmes
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Greg House, John Watson, James Wilson, Mycroft Holmes, Greg Lestrade, Jessica Adams
Additional Tags: Crossover
Summary:

Sherlock’s unexpected visit to Princeton-Plainsboro, ostensibly on a case, threatens to turn House’s life upside down as he has to face up to a secret he has kept for thirty years.

Author’s note: This entire fic is based on the video “Cat’s in the Cradle” by daasgrrl, which combines House (starring Hugh Laurie), Sherlock (starring Benedict Cumberbatch), and Fortysomething (starring Hugh Laurie and Benedict Cumberbatch). I took its central premise, used as much of the imagery and implied back story as I could fit in, and imagined what might happen next.

Obvious, but: this is especially poignant because they weren’t on speaking terms at the time. I mean John prettied himself up and had been on his way back to Sherlock when he was abducted, but I don’t think Sherlock knew about that. The last words John said to him before this moment appear to have been “Fuck off.” And Sherlock accepted that.

You may not want me in your life anymore, John Watson, but there’s no way I’m going to let you die.

"It is with a heavy heart that I take up my pen to write these the last words in which I shall ever record the singular gifts by which my friend Mr. Sherlock Holmes was distinguished. In an incoherent and, as I deeply feel, an entirely inadequate fashion, I have endeavored to give some account of my strange experiences in his company from the chance which first brought us together at the period of the ‘Study in Scarlet,’ up to the time of his interference in the matter of the ‘Naval Treaty’ — an interference which had the unquestionable effect of preventing a serious international complication. It was my intention to have stopped there, and to have said nothing of that event which has created a void in my life which the lapse of two years has done little to fill.”

Can we please stop stealing people’s art without their consent?

Especially Japanese artists?

Because believe or not, when you take a dojinka’s art and post it somewhere else without permission, not only will you make them very sad (not to mention angry) when they find out, but you could cause them some serious legal problems as well. 

I am not lying. Artists are in danger of losing everything they have if distribution of their parody work gets out of hand and the original publishing company gets wind of it (and decides to prosecute). Quite a few artists have already had their lives pretty much ruined because of the thoughtless actions of irresponsible western fans.

The reason why the dojinshi industry and sites like pixiv are even allowed to exist is because of the implicit understanding that artists who make parodies will control and limit the circulation of their digital artwork, and that printed dojinshi will only be made available to a limited audience. When you take an artist’s work and upload it somewhere else, you are taking away that control, and putting them at risk

Re-posting art without the artist’s explicit permission is not okay. Adding a source does not get you off the hook either. Neither does not adding a source at all, or saying you don’t know the artist. You took something that wasn’t yours without permission, and that means you stole it. Reblogging and liking such posts only gives re-posters the incentive to steal even more art - making the situation worse for the artist. For the love of god, have the decency to respect the rights of other human beings.

Still not convinced? Then let me take an example of an artist I’m sure you’re all familiar with: emi (of the 10-RANKAI circle).

Thousands of western fans have constantly been stealing her art for years. As a result, not only she has changed her website url multiple times, but has now renamed her circle in an effort to shake off the so-called fans who keep going against her wishes and stealing her work.

Unfortunately, her new url has already been found, and her gallery has been plundered of its copyrighted content. And it seems that re-posters can’t read, because they clearly don’t heed what she says on her site; in FOUR DIFFERENT LANGUAGES, including plain English:

image

DO NOT UPLOAD MY FANWORKS TO OTHER WEBSITES, COPY AND REPRODUCE THEM, PUBLISH THEM IN FANZINES WITHOUT PERMISSION.

There is absolutely no excuse for anyone to disrespect the wishes of artists like her in this manner. If this continues, she will no doubt block foreign servers from accessing her site, or perhaps even stop sharing her work with others altogether. I’ve seen this happen to so many other artists who couldn’t take this abuse before. 

But pixiv artists don’t say they don’t allow re-uploads on their profiles.

That’s because it’s already prohibited in the terms of use, and they don’t feel the need to repeat it. You can even find it on the help page:

image

This art theft has gotten so fucking bad, a flipping union has been formed to try and protect amateur artists’ rights. I shit you not (and by the way, emi happens to be a member).

But where will I get my fanart?

You’re free to browse artist’s galleries, save art to your hard drive, and enjoy them at your leisure. Just don’t upload the art. It’s not yours. You have no right. 

But I wanna share awesome pixiv art with my friends.

Then link them to it without re-uploading the damn image. It’s not hard.

But I wanna share art on my online communities.

There are many wonderful artists with tumblr accounts. Look for them, enjoy their work, reblog from them. Your support will inspire them to create more, and encourage other artists to come in (I can’t tell you how many times a tumblr artist has said they won’t make art for the SN/NS fandom because there are too many unscrupulous art thieves in it).

Quite a few Japanese artists are here too (a popular Korean narusasu artist, um-mmma, gets their art re-posted here all the time, yet they actually have a tumblr). You could always learn to draw as well. You might turn out to be good at it. It’s fulfilling to make your own fanwork (and it’ll also help you appreciate the feelings of other creators). If you can’t, you can always just ask artists if you can share their stuff. 

But I don’t know Japanese!

Most pixiv artists have a basic grasp of English. Keep your sentences simple and they can manage. You can always make use of Google translate, and you could also use these templates. It’s not hard, and artists really appreciate it. Why give them headaches when you can make their day?

I asked the artist and they refused/I got no reply.

If the artist hasn’t replied, then do not re-post. If they say no, do not re-post. Ever.

Can’t we be more creative as a fandom and not get by through stealing? Is that how we’re going to support our pairing? Through plagiarism? Are we gonna keep appreciating dreadful thief blogs like sasunaruyaoigirl? Are we that desperate to get notes? Are we gonna keep abusing these artist until pixiv blocks out all foreign access? Tbh, our pairing tags are a fucking eyesore, far worse than almost any other Naruto pairing I’ve ever seen. We’re better than this. It’s possible (not to mention easy) to run a fandom blog without snatching art from somebody else.

STILL NOT CONVINCED?

Educate yo’self with these materials (x) (x).

Good night!

"My dear Watson," said the well-remembered voice. "I owe you a thousand apologies. I had no idea that you would be so affected."

- The Adventure of the Empty House

I published the first page of this a little while back. Sorry that it’s taken me a while to get the rest of this posted!

Some of these scenes (such as Watson and Holmes before the web, or Sherlock and Joan on the rooftop) should seem a little familiar. I very deliberately tried to recreate them from all sorts of screenshots and references. 

Thank you very much to everyone who has been so supportive in having me see this through.

September Challenge: Characters when they think no one’s looking! 
(example art by Reapersun)
~Ends September 30th~
PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE BEGINNING!
Our challenge for September is to draw Sherlock characters in a situation where they think no one is watching and are doing something you wouldn’t normally see them do. You could choose a situation which is an extension of a canon moment, an original situation or something as part of an AU.
It’s a very open ended challenge in regards to content, so a great opportunity to get creative with pairings and context. It’s important that entires include at least two characters - with one or more of them being unknowingly observed by another character(s). 
Entries can feature a number of different characters and you can choose any character or characters in Sherlock (any version, BBC, RDJ, etc) for the challenge.
Below are some examples of situations you could use:
Doing socially unacceptable things with their bodies (picking their noses / scratching their bums)
Letting their inhibitions go (singing into a hairbrush)
Taking a sneaky selfie
Expressing suppressed emotions (“you look sad when you think he can’t see you”)
Talking to themselves
Trying to do something behind another characters back
Before starting on your piece, please read the full guidelines under the read more.
