Dating Sherlock Holmes: A chart of fannish chrono-geekery

spacefall:

What does eighty years of people trying to date the Sherlock Holmes adventures look like? Most sensible people have never wondered … or probably cared…but this is the internet, so now you can choose to find out. ;)

Puzzling out the dates and order of Holmes’s adventures has a history about as long as the fandom itself. Some fans simply wonder whether Watson was married during a case, or whether this or that adventure took place before the hiatus. Others take on the subject like a fannish game of sudoku, unable to rest until each story is slotted neatly into place. The stories and their contradictions don’t leave us with an easy task; dating the cases is a hobby that can keep a fan entertained (or just infuriated) for years.

A photoset to use as reference for various handguns and the way most hands hold them.

At some point in the future, I need to put together a reference for PROPER professional posture in wielding guns, as pros and people trained properly in how to use firearms do not hold them the way others do or the way most photos show people to hold them.

Good reminder to look for original sources everywhere - books, fashion, paintings, maps, poetry, illuminations… even if those mediums are not your primary topic. Everything is hiding a new perspective.

okay guys someone the other day asked for a bow tutorial so here it is! :> I hope it is helpful.

It’s not exactly the most precise archery information but I included what was relevant in terms of actually drawing—and remember as always, references are great in addition to looking through tutorials

am I even qualified enough to make a tutorial? oh well it was fun

Tumblr made them weeny but the magnifying glass will take you to full view

OR

part 1 full size

part 2 full size

part 3 full size

As an ex-archer, I can confirm these are reliable notes!

Recap: today was my birthday.
I was feeling rather depressed, like I usually do this time of year, but then I decided to get up and bake some cupcakes to cheer myself. And then, when my fridge was full of sugary goods, my house suddenly gets unexpectedly invaded by two old friends armed with green balloons, and cake and candles and beer!
Now I have far too much dessert home, I don’t think I can eat all that!
Grumpiness apart, I had an awesome time when I expected one particularly depressive, lonely day.
So, I know I said I wouldn’t complain about birthdays again, and I know I never really meant to make this into a personal blog, and I know I took a weird unexplained hiatus, and I know… I know…
…Actually, I forgot where I was going with this. I suppose I just wanted to apologize about this post to all my other followers. But I really needed to express my thanks to those two, at least in this small way.
Thank you so, so much!
Tomorrow there will be cake pictures, be warned.
And just so i can get get all the personal crap out of the way at once, I got an anonymous compliment in my ask while I was out! That’s amazing! I love leaving those, but I never expected to get one. Thank you, kind anon! I’ll take that as a sign to get active again.
Tumblr, I’m back! stop laughing…
