I don't think Doyle - no, art - no. Life. Gets cuter than this. And hey, slash or not, their relationship is what it is; whether you'd classify it as slash or not, it's not going to be any different. Personally, I don't think they're together, and so I just interpreted this as a very warm sick day. Because, really. Who could resist a forehead-hug-thing from Watson?!
Just wondering, though; why is this in the anthro category? (If I'm missing something really obvious, please murder me. And then have Holmes solve my death.)
[And PS, real works? I always blow off school projects for Sherlock fanfiction. Ain't nobody got time for Homer when there's (really bad) literature a'be written!]
Actually adorable. You've really got a talent for using colours and stuff to your advantage. It's very warm and tender. Not to slashy at all - the way you've set Watson's face really shows his worry, and Holmes has a kind of sickly expression - but only hinted at by some very subtle lines. I think this is excellent, I love it. Please draw more of these two, because this is geat!
Too slashy? Are you kidding! This is perfect!!!!!!!! It is sooo sweet and emotional! It really shows how much Watson loves Holmes! I just cannot tell you how much I love your Holmes drawings and how happy they make me when I see them!!!! You are definity, without a doubt, my favorite artist on deviantart!!!!!! I can't wait until another beautifully done work of Sherlock Holmes masterpiece!!!!!
Well, he manages to talk him into going on a vacation for health purposes (Holmes is ill)... and then later in that same story he saves both their lives after they do something that was sort of immensely stupid.... Does that count?
And hm. In The Solitary Cyclist Holmes has a few minor injuries picked up in a fistfight (which he totally kicked but in by the way). Watson might have helped with those BUT IF SO IT WAS 'OFFSCREEN' GRR >.<
But yeah. Generally, if Holmes is injured or impaired, he's faking, and if he's not faking, then there's no big deal made about it. OH WELL THAT'S WHY WE HAVE FANFICTION
I KNOW! Throughout the entire story you're d'awwing at them. And then they intentionally poison themselves to see if the stuff is toxic or not, and you can't figure out whether to headdesk at their almost killing themselves or squee at their devotion to each other. >.< grr. Stands to reason that those two would find a way to be absurdly adorable while choking to death and nightmarishly hallucinating thanks to a burning African root.
I know. The Canon has a lot more amusing bits than most people realize. If you're sitting next to me while I'm reading one of the stories, you'll probably over the course of the thing hear me laugh, in various ways; cry out "I KNEW it!" in a state of mental victory after a long silence; murmur something seemingly non-sequitur (i.e. "How long is a mongoose?"); mutter about how something is inaccurate or doesn't make sense; read part of a line aloud, pause, and say, affectionately but like I want to facepalm, "Oh, (character name, usually Watson or Holmes)..."; call one of the characters stupid; yelp unexpectedly; and say something sarcastic. Only a few of these are actually reasonable. ...The yelps are often when someone has mentioned oysters. Erm... sorry. After the fact, it occurs to me that you didn't actually need to know all that. I forget what point I was trying to make. I am very, very tired. Oh well...
I generally yelp. Quietly. Like I've spilled hot water on myself. "Aah!" I can't WAIT till it happens in public WEIRDEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE I BET. Trying to explain to them. "Well, you see, there's this fictional character..." and they'll be getting progressively more through the entire explanation, until by the time I'm done they're trying to get me committed to a mental hospital. IT WILL BE FUNTIMES
