His mind was more agreeably engaged by Sirbestonen His mind was more agreeably engaged by Sirbestonen
- I can guess the subject of your reverie.
- I should imagine not.
- You are considering how insupportable it would be to pass many evenings in this manner-- in such society; and indeed I am quite of your opinion. I was never more annoyed! The insipidity and yet the noise; the nothingness and yet the self-importance of all these people! -- What would I give to hear your strictures on them!
- Your conjecture is totally wrong, I assure you. My mind was more agreeably engaged...


-Pride & Prejudice - Jane Austen ©
_________________________________________________

Finally, finally finished, I've worked on it for ages (and I mean ages)! I really wanted to draw something (Sherlock related of course) which would be a kind of crossover/AU, taking place in the early 19th-century. Because.....those clothes!.
And dressing up John, Sherlock and Mycroft in those clothes was a hoot! :D I've build it up to play out a scene from the book Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, where Miss Bingley tries to pry out Mr. Darcy's thoughts. But I changed it so Mycroft is Miss Bingley; Sherlock is Mr. Darcy(because let's face it, Sherlock kind of is like Mr. Darcy) aaaaand that would make John, Elizabeth? XD

I liked using the blur-tool (in Photoshop) on the girls to the right and on the edges to bring out this feeling that Sherlock's focus is entirely on John and everything else is not important. But hey I'm just an 'ol romantic :P.

Also the silhouettes I used for the pictures on the wall belong to Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth as portrayed by Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle from the 1995 series(my favourite :))

I just wanted to say that the wallpaper in the background does not belong to me, I didn't make it, and Iím not that good XD. I found it on one of those pages where you can order wallpaper online but now I can't find it :(.

(I Wish you could zoom in more on it because there's shit-load of details in this, I loooove details.)

First time I've ever seen a Regency-era Sherlock Holmes :)

Come to think of it, I've never seen an Elizabethan Holmes, or a Medieval Holmes or a Jacobean Holmes or whatever.

Oh my Godtiss, this is gorgeous! You must have spent so much time on it! John is as oblivious and cute as always and Sherlock's expression is absolutely perfect. I can't even. Oh my god! Seriously, Sherlock's expression! So beautifully focused on John! Only John!
I've been staring at your picture for the last five minutes at least ! I am in love with it!

Wow. This is all sorts of gorgeous. The expressions on their faces are just perfect and beautifully comprised. Sherlock's interest. John's patient sort of social boredom. Mycroft's 'I'm-so-above-all-of-this.' :) Beautifully done!

Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Griffindor? OH no! Yes it IS--ack, when Fandoms Collide *facepalm* Incidently, whenever I put on the Sorting Hat I invariably get put in Griffindor even though I think of myself as more of a Hufflepuff sort of person but when I mentioned this to the People That Really Know Me, they just laughed and said I am entirely too Strong Minded, I think they meant Pig-headed :D to ever be in Hufflepuff so apparently the Hat knows best--as it always does. Anyway, I like the Griffindor Fight Song, all Together now, give up for the Red and Gold!

"So who are fightin' for?
GRIFFINDOR
Givin' it all for the Red and Gold
And who are we fightin' for?
GRIFFINDOR
This is Battle this is WAR !"
