Oh man, sorry it took me forever to reply I've been really busy lately and I've gotten in the habit of only reading comments I'll reply to here on DA. >___< Anyhow, GOSH. REALLY? YOU WOULD WANT TO DO THAT? XD No I'm flattered as heck, I'm not about to stop someone being inspired. I know how great that is, and it would just be the worst thing to be barred from acting on that inspiration. ;w; And haha, Y0do's stuff too, good choice! His Sherlockarts are absolutely amazing and some of my favorites as well~

Do show me if you do anything based on whatever of mine. OAO

I'll start tonight!! Well, maybe tomorrow, I'm kinda sleepy. ^_^
Yes, I want thoroughly to write fanfics for your work-- I really do love your artwork and like I said, I always like to imagine scenes behind the pictures.
I don't post on dA but I am a bit of an artist, both with pencil/paper and with a camera, but I'm not nearly as good as 99.9999% of the people on here and my specialty falls in writing. If you're curious, I published my first in my Y0do-series on here (I usually post on fanfiction.net or some other site). It was based on his piece "Hands". If you're interested in my writing style, feel free to check it out. :)

Gosh, I read your fic based on the Hands drawing and it's amazing! I really love it! o_o I read it once two days ago so I don't think I can comment on anything technical but I did really enjoy how you interpreted the hands and all...it was just really cool. Did you make sure Y0do read it? I hope, otherwise I might bring it to him myself. xDDD

Anyhow, I'm just really excited to see what you're going to come up with for...whatever picture I drew. I might actually point you towards my Tumblr because I have more sherlockart there then here. sketchlock.tumblr.com/tagged/Sherlockart

Well, if you're interested, I have published a oneshot based on a piece of yours. :3 I'm hoping that it's at the caliber you're expecting of me; I'm afraid it isn't as lyrical or artful as the language and ideas in the piece I wrote for Y0do's "Hands", but I hope you enjoy it anyway. I figured a light-hearted picture needed a fun little bit of whimsy.

Well now that I've read it, let me go link to it on my drawing. *A*

You don't have to do that if you don't want to, lol. XD It's kind of a mediocre sort of piece; like I said, I'm better at the more serious stuff than the fluff. But I'm really touched that you were so kind, hahaha. Don't feel obliged to do it with any others (yes, I do intend on writing more...such is the curse of art-inspired writing; there's a lot of art to be inspired by. ...That was kind of a "well duh" statement, but it's true).

I'm pretty sure I've linked it, I really haven't checked my DA stuff in a long time. Maintenance here is rather falling apart...xD;;

I tend to do art that's really literal I think, would defiantly want to draw Sherlockart that's much more vague for various reasons. =w=

Ahaha anyhow, I'm talking to myself by now. I hope you've been well. : )

Thanks for your lovely words of praise!! They really mean the world to me, hahaha.
Actually, I asked Mr. Y0do if he was interested in reading the fics after I finished them and he said that he'd prefer to remain detached from it. If that's what he wants, it's fine. (I certainly wouldn't mind him reading it, though, hahaha.)
I'm already working on one of your pictures!! I try to write oneshots based on art prompts in between chapters of my longer-running fic, Tea Leaves (which, to my glee, has gained a surprising amount of popularity among the fanfiction.net Sherlock fandom-- exciting!!). Once I'm done with my oneshot, I'll make sure to post it to dA as well so that you can take a look at it. It'll be a little more lighthearted and less lyrical (not sure if that's the right word...) than my Hands piece, but I'll try to maintain the quality level. >_<

....OKAY, JUST LOOKED AT THE URL FOR YOUR TUMBLR AND SDNFSD.KFBDSKFDMZNBF ASMFDSVFMNDZVFAHHHHHHHHHHH. You're sketchlock?!?!?! I feel enormously stupid for not having made that connection but I just recently started looking at your tumblr (like, two-three days ago) and I really love it!! I had no idea it was you though...should've done my reasearch, huh? Plus I haven't gotten very far on account of being busy with a few other things. I like checking in on that little community-- you, y0do, alicexz, reapersun...I myself don't have a tumblr but I still enjoy them. Tumblr at 2 am is one hell of a party. I Enjoy (coughWastecough) all my nights there. :D

Ah, that was a uselessly lengthy reply...sorry bout that! >_<

Did I mention to you before about how I keep putting my DA messages off because I can never reply to things properly with the time I have? I just feel so bad sometimes because sometimes I end up putting off amazing comments/messages or conversations such as yours for a while. D: And I see from another comment you've left that you've already did a story. GWAH! I'm going to go read that right after replying to this. *excite*

Anyhow, aw, too bad Y0do wants to be detached from them, but hey, let me tell you from the fic recs I've exchanged with him he'd have liked what you did with it. ;) Oh and I really appreciate you trying to keep things hi-qual, though I hope it's not something that's at an expanse, I mean, some arts or inspirations are just not geared towards that. I did do a quick peek at your fic and so found that it's from the drawing I did of Sherlock covered in John's jumpers, that one's really wimsical to begin with anyhow so I wouldn't know how anyone can make it all...I dunno, lyrical. BUT STILL, I'm so honored and just gwahhh, SOMEONE WROTE TO MY ART?! ;A;

OH. UM. Yeah. TTTHHHATTTSSS ME? PWP Ahaha, I don't advertize it much, and I've gotten several comments here about people being really surprised I'm sketlock. And vice versa a little too? Or I just remember one instance. Mmmmm. Anyhow, I'm glad that you enjoy browsing through Tumblr, it's fun like that~

I dunno if I would suggest you get an account because it can EASILY be extreemly time consuming (I guess that's the "danger" of Tumblr) but the dash is a better way of seeing stuff from everyone you want to keep tabs on without having to shift through different pages. (Or I'm really just lazy hahah)

And don't worry, I tend to favor lengthy replies/comments and as you can probably tell from this, I'm a lengthy reply-er myself. =w= hoho.

Mm, don't worry about it, I understand. You're way busier than I am, so don't feel pressured to write a quick reply. I'm not even out of high school yet; I've got massive amounts of time on my hands, lol. (College applications will start for juniors like myself in a couple months, though, and I'll have less time... :( I'm positively dreading it).
I ended up replying to these out of order, whoops. I don't mind if Mister Y0do doesn't want to see it; I've known some people who write oneshots and stuff for fanarts just to get recognition and sort of guilt the artist into reading their other stuff with the hopes that they'll do art of their other stories. That always seemed so wrong to me, seriously. You write because you love to write, not because you're trying to guilt trip someone into advertising your stuff. At least, that's how I view it; clearly my views aren't similar. But I've come across a lot of artists-- specifically friends of mine-- who always felt obliged to do something in return, so they wanted to stay detached from it. This is probably Mister Y0do's case and I understand completely. (My intentions aren't such, obviously, but I wouldn't want to make him uncomfortable.)
Continuing on...like I previously mentioned, yeah, it's awfully difficult to get lyrical and poetic with fluff and far easier to do so with darker, serious-er fics, which will explain why It's an Experiment wasn't up to par with Physical Manifestation of Thought. ;A; Ah, fluff, you shall ruin me. I try to write good fluff, because it seems that so many in this fandom (any fandom, just about) enjoy it, but I have a lot to learn.
Mwahahaha, I looooove Tumblr but yeah, I haven't gotten one...I waste enough time as it is on facebook, dA, fanfiction.net, etc. I'm afraid my GPA would crash and burn with a Tumblr, as would I with the sleep I suddenly wouldn't be getting. Insomnia isn't a good thing but insomnia and Tumblr is a disaster waiting to happen. But it's such a party, really-- I love the fun communities of everyone who seems to know each other. (Makes me feel weird being an anonymous lurker.)
I hope you don't mind me writing more oneshots (twoshots, maybe) if I feel inspired by more art of yours? I'm someone who's very visual and gets her main source of inspiration from things I see/art (second possibly only to musical inspiration). If you don't want me to or don't feel like reading any of those, don't feel obliged to, haha. This is all purely for my enjoyment. XD
