Our neighbor friend Miss Tammy gave me this ball. It’s just like the one her doggie Lila plays with. She saw I liked Lila’s so much she let me have one for my very own. Lila is a little bit wild, so we don’t have any pictures of us together. I still like to go over and play!
I’m sorry for breaking character and commenting on such a serious issue, but I have to say this because not saying it is driving me up the wall: It never fails to make my blood boil when I come across people calling John or even Sherlock or Mycroft a “psychopath” or “abusive” without understanding the impact that these terms actually have, and I’ve been seeing so much of it recently in certain subgroups of this fandom that it’s beginning to genuinely upset me.
You know where you can find a large amount of abusers with antisocial personalities and the people who have been affected by them? State psychiatric hospitals. Go spend a few days in one and witness someone being restrained and injected because they physically or otherwise assault a staff member or another patient if you want to become familiar with those kinds of people. Have a conversation with one of the patients there who has been so severely abused and traumatized in their lives that they attempt suicide repeatedly until they eventually sustain brain damage and require around the clock care. Go talk to the man who needs to be institutionalized because the grief that he’s endured from his two sons both committing suicide within a year of each other is too much for him to cope with and then come back and tell me that watching a loved one commit suicide in front of you doesn’t have any psychological ramifications and wouldn’t alter a fictional character’s personality.
Trust me when I say that people like John and Sherlock aren’t the reason why these people become committed to psychiatric hospitals. If you truly think that John and Sherlock are amoral psychopaths despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, then I hope that you never experience anything in your life to make you come to the realization that the opposite is true.
So I completely forgot that I can finally post the drawings I did for the Cabin Pressure Artbook! I’m far too fond of drawing the airdot in its entirety, so here’s a couple of family portraits.
It was so much fun to be a part of a project alongside so many talented artists to make something so brilliant to help raise money for the con. John Finnemore was actually given a copy at the recording of the last episode and loved it, so what better endorsement do you need if you’re still unsure whether or not to buy one!
John arguing about the semantic difference and its implications between “previous” and “ex” but people don’t think he knows what he’s doing when he says “not gay” instead of “straight”
I’ve just been told I need ten thousand dollars worth of dental work. (The picture attached is of the projected costs.) I live off social security; my income is too little for any form of credit and I have very little money to spend. I’m trying to earn the money any way I can, and if you can he…
I’m still trying to raise the rest of the money. If you see this please reblog.
