“Sherlock’s idea of compliments “[You are] amazing! [You are] fantastic!” are exactly the same compliments John gives him when they first meet - as most people call him a freak, they’re probably the only compliments he’s ever received.
His idea of how to be nice to people is what he’s learned from John.” [x]
*wibble* WHY. WHY WOULD YOU WRITE SOMETHING LIKE THAT. WHY IS MY FACE WET???
Click on the pictures for HQ. Trust me. They’re mad pretty.
“I have been shot at, stabbed, and seen my own arm torn from my body upon the hostile battlefields of India and Afghanistan, and yet none of those terrors compare in my estimation with that of driving through London with Holmes at the helm.”Steampunk Holmes is a mashup of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, characters, and stories from other 19th century works set in an alternative Steampunk universe. In the Steampunk Holmes Universe, a new, more compact and powerful steam engine has been invented, which powers everything from motorcycles to airships; computers, called Babbage Engines, are pervasive and critical to the information architecture of Victorian England; and the telegraph has evolved into a world wide network connecting Babbage Engines and people.
The series starts in the year 1885, when Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are called in by Sherlock’s sister, Mycroft Holmes, to help find the stolen plans of a very advanced submarine, the Nautilus, recovered from the watery grave of the most notorious terrorist of the British Empire, Captain Nemo. Who stole the plans and what will they do with them? This is a job for the world’s greatest Amateur Detective and his trusty bionic sidekick.
Babes Jenn, Lyndsay, and Amy have a chat with three of the people behind the Steampunk Holmes project. Producer Richard Monson-Haefel, author P.C. Martin, and artist Daniel Cortes talk about how the idea of mashing Sherlock Holmes and steampunk together came to life. Holmes rides a steampunk motorcycle with sidecar! Watson has a bionic arm! Mycroft is a female! How cool is that?!?
The Steampunk Holmes project is authorized by the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate and is a labor of love for these three. Currently, they are in need of your help.

The Doctor Who version of the Nativity. It’s much better than the original.
I made this about a year ago, but I thought I’d share it with tumblr. I thought about re-doing it but there as a lack of ‘can be bothered’ going around, I’m afraid.
Although, my parents have a nativity set that’s just about the right scale for my Doctor Who action figures. Maybe that’s something I can, um, use responsibly.
OMG, I LOVE YOU.
K-9s instead of sheeps and baby Jamie. YES.
