“Because I like you,” she said, “and I don’t want anything from you.
Just a scribble. Finished the first episode of Sherlock. My feelings on Benedict Cumberbatch evolved thusly:

People are hard to draw, though. Especially those with unusual faces and creepy eyes and high cheekbones and…yeah. Stuff. Yay Sherlock!
A mini comic I did the art for, produced for Grayhaven Comics’ upcoming compilation, ‘You Are Not Alone.’ Written by :DevDestiny-Smasher:, this standalone comic also serves as a slice of backstory for Jane Fitzpatrick — one of the primary characters of the Avatar: tLA/LoK fanproject, ‘What I Learned at SRU.’ Jane’s character concept was directly based on ‘Smellerbee,’ and in the story Jane serves as a reimagining of the character.
You Are Not Alone will be: “A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse.” You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1
You can read more of Jane’s story in this short piece: http://destiny-smasher.deviantart.com/art/Side-Pocket-An-SRU-Short-211078228

Of course not. No one is chosen. Not ever. Not in the real world. You chose to climb out of your window and ride on a leopard. You chose to get a witch’s Spoon back, and to make friends with a wyvern. You chose to trade your shadow for a child’s life. You chose not to let the Marquess hurt your friend—you chose to smash her cages! You chose to face your own Death, not to balk at a great sea to cross and no ship to cross it in. And twice now you have chosen not to go home when you might have, if only you abandoned your friends. You are not the chosen one, September. Fairyland did not choose you—you chose yourself. You could have had a lovely holiday in Fairyland and never met the Marquess, never worried yourself with local politics, had a romp with a few brownies and gone home with enough memories for a lifetime’s worth of novels. But you didn’t. You chose. You chose it all. Just like you chose your path on the beach: to lose your heart is not a path for the faint and fainting.”
