A Family Affair
  • *Angelo's*
  • Molly's Date: *raises his glass* To us.
  • Molly: *smiles; lifts her glass* To us *clinks his*
  • Molly's Date: *nods at Angelo* A mate of yours?
  • Molly: *turns away; waves* Oh, yeah, he's friends with...someone I know *turns back* So...where were-
  • Sherlock: *suddenly next to them; exasperated* Sorry I'm late...may I join you?
  • Molly: ...
  • Molly's Date: *frowns* Excuse me?
  • Molly: *rolls her eyes* Edward, this is Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock, Edward Castle *mutters* Sherlock is my soon-to-be-ex husband.
  • Molly's Date: *raises an eyebrow* You never told me you were married.
  • Sherlock: *pulls up a chair; smug* Ah, first date. Remember ours, dear?
  • Molly: *narrows her eyes* Where are the kids?
  • Molly's Date: *splutters his drink* Wait, you have kids? Plural? As in...more than one?
  • Molly: *still looking at Sherlock* Yes. Where are they?
  • Sherlock: *thinking* Hmm...one is out solving a crime probably, teenagers, I'm sure I left the twins downstairs with Mrs. Hudson, John and Mary wanted the toddler practice and Mycroft is babysitting the, erm, baby.
  • Molly's Date: *alarmed* Jesus, how many have you got?
  • Sherlock & Molly: *glance at each other* Five.
  • Molly's Date: *confused* Well, then...why are you splitting up?
  • Molly: *smiles* The sex was crap.
  • Sherlock: *chuckles; takes her wine glass* Now, Molly, give him an excuse he'll believe *raises the glass to the light*
  • Molly's Date: *looking between them* What's going on?
  • Sherlock: *sighs* Does the name Julia Smith mean anything to you?
  • Molly's Date: *shakes his head*
  • Sherlock: Nooo *sniffs the glass* You never get to know their names first, do you? Did you know she was fifteen years old?
  • Suspect: ...
  • Sherlock: Her mother hired me to investigate her attack. Dinner at a restaurant with someone she met in a chatroom... *dips his finger in the wine glass* I don't think I need to tell you the rest *tentatively tastes the liquid*
  • Molly: *calm* You see, while you're sat here with me, the police are raiding your flat and, well...I don't think you're getting away this time.
  • Suspect: *fuming* You have no right-
  • Sherlock: *fuming* Our eldest is the same age. It is taking all my willpower not to force you to drink this and leave you at the mercy of my girls. Far worse than anything I could do to you.
  • Greg: *enters Angelo's; approaching their table* Come on, Castle. You have the right to remain silent... *leads the suspect away*
  • Molly: *holds Sherlock's hand* It's okay...we got him.
  • Sherlock: *nods* Too late *sighs* That was...good.
  • Molly: Not bad for an amateur, eh? *pats his knee* Come on, let's round up the troops.
  • Sherlock: *smiles* Thank you for helping me.
  • Molly: *grins* What would you do without me? *kisses him*
  • Sherlock: *takes her hand* Don't make me think about that.
  • John: *running his hands through his hair* For God's sake, Will...put that down.
  • Baby Holmes: *grinning; rips open the bag of flour*
  • John: *high-pitched* Don't you dare! Where did you even get-
  • Baby Holmes: *throws the flour at him*
  • Mary: *returns from the bathroom; examing one of Sherlock's shirts* I think I got most of it out *looks up, sees John covered in flour; stifling giggles* What happened?
  • John: *glares at her* About this baby of ours...

tbh I find manami more devilish bc he’s manipulative and far from innocent omf playing the “angel” why you little

My feminist awakening was not a conscious thing, I guess you’d say. It came from watching my dad.

Dad and my brothers would be painting the house. “I want to help” “Give her a cup of water and a brush. She’s a girl; she’ll mess it up.” Dad would be working on a car. “I want to help.” “here’s a screwdriver, go play in the dirt or something.” Brother would be moving the lawn. “Can I try?” “You’re a girl; you’ll just cut your foot off.”

When it was time to decide on college, “I want to be a musician.” “Yeah? And you’ll end up like your mother, flipping burgers.” She was a chef, but he, like a lot of men, doesn’t take female chefs seriously. “Okay, what about psychology?” “You’re too stupid for that.” I went for an accounting degree, because he felt I should, even though it wasn’t what I wanted. When I got on the Dean’s list every single time all through college, “You couldn’t have done that. You faked the letters.”

My brothers, on the other hand, were never too stupid for anything (even though I did better than they did in school; a lot of my problem was that I was bored). It was never a problem that they were working crap jobs. It was never a problem that one of them went for his dream.

No matter how hard I tried, it was never enough; no matter how little my brothers did, it was always more than enough.

I can’t even with this. Congratulations on turning out to be a well-adjusted human being despite having the worst father ever.

What sparked your feminist awakening? Send me an ask or submit your story!

So I may be excited about nbchannibal and nbcaquarius airing back to back on the same night. 👽

Kannao @ Manga Studio

My first shot at Manga Studio. The interface is intimidating compared to SAI but they have a lot in common so it’s not like totally bad. I just have to play around the tools, setting and etc.

Although on this pic, it was all fun and games until I realized I’m working on 600 dpi and been lagging a bit. I realized it when I was almost done… OTL

Gosh the blend tool is awesomeeeee and those pattern brushes are fun!
