Canon John Watson (Canon indicates the true original work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not the adaptations) was a soft man, a soldier, a doctor, loyal, caring. Loved Sherlock Holmes with all his heart.
“Contagious by touch, Watson—that’s it, by
touch. Keep your distance and all is well.”
“Good heavens, Holmes! Do you suppose that
such a consideration weighs with me of an instant?
It would not affect me in the case of a stranger. Do
you imagine it would prevent me from doing my
duty to so old a friend?”
That’s a man willing to take care of Holmes even if the sickness is contagious, not bothering with Holmes’ protest.
It was worth a wound—it was worth many
wounds—to know the depth of loyalty and love
which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard
eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips
were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a
glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain.
All my years of humble but single-minded service
culminated in that moment of revelation.
That’s a man getting overwhelmed because what he thought was an unrequited love, was proved wrong by the object of his affection. Find me another softer man.
I can go on and on. But better if you read the canon and know the real character yourself.
Any other fan adaptation John Watson, i.e Rathbone, Granada, Ritchie , BBC, Elementary etc is fanon. Not canon.
So any personality traits these adaptations imposes on John Watson other than his canon characteristics is fanon. Not canon.
BBC John Watson hitting Sherlock Holmes ruthlessly is fanon. Not canon.
People claiming John Watson is canonically an abuser, sorry to disappoint you. But it’s actually like trying to establish an OOC fanfic characteristic. Abuser John Watson is fanon. Not canon.
The most important thing : People claiming that soft , caring John watson is fanon, not canon, sorry to disappoint you again. Soft caring , loving, loyal John Watson is the most canon thing. Not fanon.
John Watson has always loved Sherlock Holmes and vice versa and that’s canon. And always will be.
Have a nice day everyone. And spread some love for soft John Watson.
I’ve been sitting on this for awhile. I started this storyboard/comic hybrid after the Raishan fight was initiated underground after Thordak, and just… never finished it. At this point, I’ve kind of made the call to not continue further. There’s just too many other things I could do, and there’s problems with this that I don’t care to really fix. (The first panel of “page” two was finalized as a Talks Machina submission ages ago.)
I had the thought of Percy and Vex talking about their death experiences after fighting Raishan and Thordak, as let’s be honest, they’ve had some drastically different ones. I’m super happy with what was happening here, even if I think some characterization is pretty off at this point.
Sorry if the last bit is illegible. Like I said, didn’t finish. But hey, now you can see how scrappy my thumbnails are. And the origin of why I draw Cabal’s Ruin with a blue feather attached all the time (as that’s what Vex is doing, if you can understand my scribbles). Patreon got to see this a few weeks ago, albeit at a slightly bigger size.
Made this forever ago before working on some commissions but I changed their hair after reading the last chapter. I thought, man! This picture is perfect for Natsu’s crazy hair! So much Tarzan feeI I couldn’t help myself :D Though I didn’t look at that scene when I drew this it was in my mind for awhile, plus I haven’t drawn Fairy Tail fanart in awhile (BTW, next commission I am working on is Fairy Tail, I think you guys will like it and hopefully the client as well!) I think we have too much expectation for Natsu to be a romantic when in reality, he is a wild child. SO! I made another one to counter the expectation! EXPECTATION VS. REALITY YA’LL! ENJOY!! NEXT WORK WILL BE A COMMISSION DRAWING I WILL POST HOPEFULLY SOMETIME BY THE END OF THIS WEEK!
A clearly-teenaged library patron today said that she had the exact same birthday as Harry Potter. I told her that Harry Potter is actually in his 30′s now, and she said, “No, not the actor who plays him, the actual character!” and I said, “No, yeah, Harry Potter himself was born in 1980!” and she said, “Nuh uh, he was born on July 31, 1997, just like me!”
So I had to explain to her that the first book may have been published in 1997, but the actual character of Harry Potter was canonically born in 1980.
Tbh, racists are making these trash ass excuses about Black Panther because everyone and their grandmother knows if white people hadn’t infested and ruined Africa, it and its people would be the greatest on this planet . And yes, I’m talking about reality.
Africa was and still is rich in gold, silver, oil and many natural resources. The riches person to ever live was a a west African man worth an estimate of $400 billion. Behind a majority of the worlds greatest discoveries and contributions to the planet are from people of African descent. For fucks sake, black women made it possible to go to the moon and you want to tell me that the success of Wakanda couldn’t be reality????
White racists and pretty much everyone who isn’t black knows damn well if it wasn’t for slavery, colonization, selfishness and greed you would be insignificant…
Your hatred for this movie is bigger than it being “unrealistic”. A two minute trailer has brought more black people around the world together than ever before. This generation of black people are more aware and informed about their history and themselves. And your intimidated. Your scared. Cause you know damn well if we TRULY wanted to,black people as a whole can make a fictional empire like Wakanda a reality….
Your intimidated by the fact that, maybe not as advanced, Africa was Wakanda, blessed with fearless people who took pride in their home, geniuses improving their way of life, black women treated like the queens they are, and a fair and just king,all for a infestation to take everything they hold dear to their hearts.
So to whoever it may concern, whoever has a problem,fuck you and your fake kings and queens and your fake nations run on stolen land. Fuck your animalistic laws and your white supremacy.🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾
