Welcome to my keep! My name is Sue. I'm an artist, photographer, anglophile, ardent reader (Tell me a story!), film buff, music fanatic, and all-around-omnivore-of-the-world-around-me. Under the cover of superficial cynicism (I'm old enough to know better), I'm actually an insufferable optimist. I live in the October Country and keep a Halloween tree decorated and lit year-round. I adore Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, ghost stories, fan fiction, fan art, Doctor Who, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, children's literature, Steampunk, artists, musicians, poets, writers, photographers, philosophers, and anyone who just has something to communicate.

My exchangelock gift (plus close ups), for sherlawkis4jawn, who said they liked kidlock and fawnlock, and then on their blog had some things about Richard the III, so I decided to combine all of those things. :)

John likes introducing Fawnlock to human literature, which Fawnlock is enthralled with—up to a point; if John uses too many words Fawnlock doesn’t understand he tends to loose interest. Although it definitely helps if John brings some snacks for him to munch on while he listens to John’s renditions of Shakespearean monologues.


After seeing shootbadcabbies' amazing headshot sketch of Fawnlock, I commissioned her to finish it for me in color. Needless to say, she'll definitely be hearing from me again!


Click here to support Wheelchair needed. by Lissa Mitchell



I would appreciate it if you’d take a minute to read through this post. Lissa Mitchell is a lovely, talented Sherlockian who was recently diagnosed with the debilitating and incureable Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and is in urgent need of a wheelchair. She is trying to raise the necessary funds from among the Sherlock fandom and the Tumblverse, as she has no other resources at present. Good health is a priceless blessing. I show my gratitude for my own good health by doing what I can to support my friends who aren’t as fortunate. It really doesn’t take much if many Tumblrs contribute modest individual amounts to Lissa’a cause. Thanks for your consideration!
