Benedict Cumberbatch being interviewed by the Evening Standard before the GQ man of the Year awards ceremony - he said he was ‘Giddy’ over his Emmy win.

Our first attempt at a Swedish fire log was a smashing success.
burns for hours and it looks beautiful.
I have no idea how you make a Swedish fire long
but i have a MIGHTY NEED for a Swedish fire log
It’s actually super easy and you see basically how in the picture: Just cut slits about like 3/4 down in a big (dry) log with a chainsaw. Then, just light it up on top with some smaller branches and whatever, the inside will catch fire, and it’ll burn for a long time. Great at outside events in the cold months.
September Challenge: Characters when they think no one’s looking!
(example art by Reapersun)
~Ends September 30th~
PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES BEFORE BEGINNING!
Our challenge for September is to draw Sherlock characters in a situation where they think no one is watching and are doing something you wouldn’t normally see them do. You could choose a situation which is an extension of a canon moment, an original situation or something as part of an AU.
It’s a very open ended challenge in regards to content, so a great opportunity to get creative with pairings and context. It’s important that entires include at least two characters - with one or more of them being unknowingly observed by another character(s).
Entries can feature a number of different characters and you can choose any character or characters in Sherlock (any version, BBC, RDJ, etc) for the challenge.
Below are some examples of situations you could use:
- Doing socially unacceptable things with their bodies (picking their noses / scratching their bums)
- Letting their inhibitions go (singing into a hairbrush)
- Taking a sneaky selfie
- Expressing suppressed emotions (“you look sad when you think he can’t see you”)
- Talking to themselves
- Trying to do something behind another characters back
