Initially he wanted to be a pirate


Lets Draw Sherlock - Characters when they think no one’s looking! 

JW: Remember when you said Sherlock wanted to be a pirate?
MH: Initially, yes.
JW: Well, apparently he still does.
MH: Ahh. You’ve found the book have you?
JW: Didn’t have to look very hard…

Sherlock still indulges in a bit of mindless reading every now and again. Though he often seeks comfort in one book in particular. Funny that.

John comes home from the clinic early to find Sherlock sound asleep with a book. And though Sherlock claims that the books he reads are for case and chemistry purposes only, John’s pleasantly surprised that Sherlock has at least one adventure book among the lot. He feels like he’s just walked in on a very private moment so, after snapping a photo for safe keeping, John leaves Sherlock be and retreats upstairs.


I tried to tell the story about bbc!Sherlock in four illustrations, and each should be considered its own chapter.

ch1/ Redbeard /”Initially, he wanted to be a pirate. ”

ch2/ Mycroft /”Caring is not an advantage.”

ch3/ Lestrade /”Sherlock Holmes is a great man, And I think one day, If we’re very very lucky, he might even be a good one.”

ch4/ John /”You. It’s always you.”


There are too many inspirations in my head! lol Maybe this is the last one in 2015, I can take a rest for temporary and prepare my final exam. LOL

And waiting for the special out.(It’s January 8th!!!! We should wait for eight days more in Taiwan.)

A Painter, Pirates, and the Great-Uncle of Sherlock Holmes

Have we talked about this?

Horace Vernet
born and died Paris, France, 1789 -1863
Pirates Fighting at Sunrise

According to “The Greek Interpreter” Holmes’s grandmother was the sister of a French artist named Vernet. There are three French painters named Vernet but Horace Vernet seems to be the only one who painted pirates. Just saying.  


“Initially he wanted to be a pirate”

GoT 5x08 Musings

My initial reaction to “Hardhome”

This episode might be considered “better,” because instead of having 55 minutes of horrible, misguided adaptational decisions and out of character moments, we got a good 25 minutes eaten up by an assault to our eyes that was a mixture or Pirates of the Caribbean, Dawn of the Dead, Zulu, and Jason and the Argonauts. So a lot of my complaints may just be “SPOOKY SKELETONS!

Whatever, let’s get on with it.


  • Tyrion could not have been more Saint-like if he tried. He made amazing point after point after point, and also noted that Dany didn’t have anyone else around her who knew about Westeros. So it’s basically confirmed that Barry was killed off for Tyrion’s benefit.
  • Also TYRION LEFT OUT HOUSE MARTELL when talking about Westerosi politics. Perhaps it was to hide a reveal, but FUCK YOU their 50,000 spears are super offended (yes I know Doran claims there are fewer in the books don’t start)
  • “Varys is the only person I trust next to my brother (●´ω`●)” Just, fuck you D&D. Tyrion and Jaime parting on bad terms was rather important. But just keep rubbing our faces in it, fine.
  • Okay, Dany’s wheel platitude was not better in context. And they didn’t even formulate a plan. Putting these two characters apparently “creatively made sense” because they wanted it to happen, yet their conversation with each other was kind of just…lacking. It was Tyrion proving his genius and Dany proving she’s not a total shit, which we would have thought had they not botched her characterization this season.
  • Idk book readers are so excited for them to meet but this was just. It felt like very generic fanfic.
  • Jorah gets thrown out and decides the thing that will sway Dany is fighting in the pits she reluctantly opened despite the fact that Tyrion’s point about him not being good to have by her side will still stand. Kay.

What's the point of Hook?

Once Upon a Time’s ‘The Jolly Roger’ was a revealing episode regarding Captain Hook. We got explicit confirmation of his one-sided desire for Emma Swan… like we needed it, because Regina referred to it earlier in Neverland - a pirate who “pines for you”; and Emma told Hook that the somewhat experimental kiss she initiated was “a one time thing”. Plus planting one on her in New York didn’t work as true love magic, so it was becoming obvious. However in this episode we found out what it’s all about:-

When Emma asks Hook to mind Henry while Regina teaches her magic, he assumes she wants to be with him and can’t help indulging his ego by telling her as much, prompting Emma to call him on it. As Regina notes his doe eyes and yearning, Emma confirms that she doesn’t reciprocate - ” I don’t yearn”; and Regina emphasises that “he does”.

So what’s the point of Hook’s pining, yearning, egotistical assumptions and unrequited lust? I think it’s the danger it poses. Men who pursue women like this don’t do so out of love. They are self-centered and possessive. Once has given us a tangible, magical interpretation of this - Hook’s weakness of character is a flaw that the Wicked Witch can exploit.

That “one time thing” kiss is now a real and present danger because Hook wants a repeat, despite Emma’s rebuttals, and Zelena used his poisonous sentiment to make a literal curse. We have seen how villains like Cora and Pan declared love a weakness, and heroes like Emma and anti-heroes like Regina identify it as strength; but in Hook’s case, because what he feels towards Emma is not love, just self-centred obsession that prompts peeping through a spy-glass and ill-conceived lewd remarks, it is a serious weakness of character that now threatens Emma’s life. It has the potential to destroy her power, her magic.

The flashback with Ariel showed us that Hook is still the selfish criminal who puts his own desires first. He wanted his ship back, and even though that meant betraying her he got it. Now he lies about it when back in Storybrooke in the present, pretending to help the woman he thinks is her to search for Eric. When Zelena reveals her deception to him, he continues to lie to those she wishes harm. He lies to Emma, pretending to have helped Ariel find Eric, deceiving her into thinking he is worth her trust. Regina is suspicious but can’t put her finger on it, because by lying Hook hides from them and everyone else important information about the latest threat - how and why the Wicked Witch has Emma in her sights.

We didn’t really need this proof that Hook does not have Emma’s best interests at heart, but it does prove something else: there isn’t enough time and space in Once for a Hook redemption arc. Meanwhile his function as the not-right-for-Emma plot device kind of works. He puts her in danger because his desires are selfish.

“pirates..don’t usually initiate attacks against the world government or marines”

this line only is what makes dragon’s ambitions and motivations so mysterious in origin, it’s impossible that he wasn’t taught and raised to be a marine by garp,

because some pirates are renown and gained a higher bounty for attacking..civilians like killer or kid i recall, to think that even them wouldn’t initiate a skirmish against random marines or what not,

there’s something so fundamentally frightening and ruthless about dragon that even yonko lack, you can’t give up your image, soul and body (kuma propaganda by the WG) without being ready to give up everything, and that includes baltigo…and luffy

Why can nobody see you??^^"""

(PP I know what you actually meant)

To be honest, in the beginning I had a completely different direction I wanted to take with Sanzu- initially he was supposed to be a ghost, the same age as PT, and he was supposed to be tethered to the ship as solely PT’s curse.

Now, it’s evolved to be that the curse is in a broader concept- Sanzu’s existence was accidental and caused PT’s universe to spill over like a delicious pot of pirate-flavored gumbo; Sanzu, PT and the ship fell into the void where they’ll remain until Sanzu’s dead and balance is brought back to PT’s AU.
