Illusion and Dream by inklou
by inklou

This is a wonderfully executed piece. I love your use of light and color. The entirety of the crowd around Sherlock and John is subdued...



Haha. So. It's kind of February right now.


I figured my return would occur with a tag because I literally have written nothing for two months. Thank you to :iconmrshorowietzky: for the tag!


1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 things about themselves.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people your tag will have to answer.
(Yes there are rules missing. I don't have enough people to tag.)
8. No tag-backs.
9. You can't say you don't do tags. 

10 Things About Me:

1. I love music boxes.
2. My favorite scenery to look at would be a desert. Mountains of sand are gorgeous.
3. I just watched "The Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway and I literally have not stopped singing the songs. 
4. I love messing with patterns, whether they're visual or mathematical.
5. My voice is extremely monotone. I feel like I put people to sleep when I talk!
6. I have a newfound appreciation for modern art after playing the absolutely glorious game "Ib." It takes place in a mysterious art gallery come to life that you have to escape. It has beautiful music. Arcangelo Corelli's "La Folia" is the background music for the beginning, and Agustin Barrios Mangore features prominently. As long as you can stomach a few jumpscares and a generally creepy atmosphere, I'd highly recommend it; a safe, free, and legal download can be found here:
7. The only reason I've built up any muscle is because I play baritone sax. (It's great because I'm, like, 5'4" and the saxophone dwarfs me when I sit down.)
8. I can multitask with anything but reading.
9. I'm a pretty messy person, but I absolutely will not stand to have my books messed with.  If there's a thumbprint on even one page I have a miniature heart attack. (I'm also a major hypocrite, because I scold my equally messy friends for forgetting stuff.)
10. My favorite piece of music ever is Claude Debussy's "Clair de Lune."

Ten Questions From: :iconmrshorowietzky:

1. Have you ever tried to deduce something like Sherlock Holmes about random people?

I've tried. And failed. I can get super basic information, like handedness, but that's about it. I do tend to make creepy observational comments ("You stand like that when you're nervous."), though.

2. What's your favourite era in history and why?

Probably the Renaissance; it was a convergence of art with humanity, which was pretty awesome.

3. Do you like comics? Do you know / like Disney Ducks?

Sadly I'm not much of a comics person. I know this is lame, but I honestly think I'm too lazy to invest in those long-running series...! And the only Disney Duck I know is Donald. Sorry...

4. Do you have (a) favourite quote(s)? Which?

"He must so to speak throw away the ladder, after he has climbed up on it." - Ludwig Wittgenstein

I love that one. When Wittgenstein was buried, a ladder was put on his grave.

5. If your favourite character would be suddenly standing in front of you asking you to come with her/him on a flight in a pink-piggy-shaped hot-air balloon, what would you think and do?

I would definitely ask if we went back to the cocaine, because Sherlock Holmes would have to be high to propose something like that. And I'd have to decline the offer because I can't handle heights! I'm kind of wimpy.

6. If you're a Holmes fan: Are you a H & W-shipper? Why (not)?  /  If you're a Duck fan: Are you a $ & G-shipper? Why (not)?

Do I ship Holmes and Watson... hmm. I'd say that I don't, but I like the idea that they do, so to speak, "toe the line" a bit. I think they're emotionally intimate enough that physical intimacy seems natural for them; I just don't know how far it would go. Even if there was something between them, though, I don't think I could ever see Holmes taking that step; that's something too emotional for him to handle.

7. Do you have a favourite piece of classical music (alternatively soundtrack)? Which?

Definitely Debussy's "Clair de Lune." If only I played piano. (But chords and I don't get along. I was raised on woodwinds.)

8. When there would be a contest where people can vote for the Eighth Wonder of the World, what would you pick?

Wow, I honestly have no idea! I guess I'd say the Hagia Sophia, because I don't really know of anything else.

9. Opinion on ladybugs?

They're great. I admit that I don't really like the way they feel when they walk on my skin, but I think they're adorable.

10. Selfish question: What do you like most about my work?

Your style! It's both super-clean and unique, which I really appreciate. I also like how you render characters familiar to me in a way that is definitely your own, but at the same time, you keep them recognizable. And I think your coloring is gorgeous.(I don't think that's a selfish question, by the way... just a request of opinion, really.)

(Bonus question if you feel like it: What do you like most about your favourite character?)

I'd say Sherlock Holmes is my favorite character, and I most like him because of the fact that he's extremely interesting to interpret. No matter what adaptation is concerned, there are always plenty of layers to analyze and compare.

My questions. WHOOPEE

1. Who is your favorite writer and why?
2. Have you ever used a Markov chain generator for fun? If so, what was the funniest sentence you got from it?
3. If you had the ability to paint any real-life thing (I certainly don't!), what would you paint?
4. If the current time period is one hundred years after a zombie apocalypse, what would you be doing right now?
5. If you lived in a fictional universe/setting/etc., where would you live?
6. What is your Myers-Briggs type, if you know it?
7. If you were an RPG character, what class/job would you be?
8. What is your opinion on snow?
9. Who is your favorite historical figure and why?
10. What's the prettiest place you've ever seen?

I tag whomever wants to do this. Yeah I'm cheap, I know.

Here I am.

INTP: The Architect

Overview: INTPs are obsessed with the idea of truth. Truth can manifest itself in countless forms to the INTP, but the one thing that is certain is that truth is a lifelong quest for this type. In order to gather as much information as possible and thereby come closer to attaining the truth, the INTP attempts to be the most objective of observers and constantly strives for logical consistency. This is often done at the sacrifice of feeling, which is perceived as a fearsome threat to the internal rationality.

Dominant Ti: Introverted thinking. Applies maximum leverage to solve a problem with minimal effort. Draws conclusions via methods of logical reasoning. (Well-developed.)

Auxiliary Ne: Extroverted intuition. Observes and identifies patterns in the external world. Sees possibilities begotten by patterns. (Well-developed.)

Ti-Ne Block: When the INTP has sufficiently grown his auxiliary function, he makes full use of his dominant functional block. A well-developed INTP has the capability to interact well with others through the use of Ne. This particular function, by generating situational possibilities, can simulate and subsequently act upon the empathy which strong Fe users possess naturally; therefore, Ne helps the INTP to cope with and accept emotion. Ne also enables the INTP to communicate his ideas to others clearly and concisely. Along with this, INTPs with strong Ne are able to be truly objective; they will not reject "useless" information. This brand of the type is endlessly tolerant of others as it is able to take on a universal perspective unaffected by foreign lifestyles. It also gains insight into the inner workings of others and thereby understands how better to deal with them.

Tertiary Si: Introverted sensing. Stores observational information in memory in order to be used in comparisons later. Notices causal differences. (Undeveloped until mid-twenties.)

Inferior Fe: Extroverted feeling. Attunes to the emotional atmosphere of a situation or person. Understands how to behave socially. (Undeveloped until late thirties.)

Best-suited careers: Philosopher, physicist, chemist, architect, mathematician, professor, photographer, computer programmer, video game designer

Worst-suited careers: Interior designer, school psychologist, nurse, corporate official, salesman, comedian, pediatrician

Most compatible with (from personal experience): ENTPs, ISFJs, INFPs

Least compatible with (from personal experience): ESFJs, ENFPs, ISTJs

skitskitpotter Nov 24, 2013  Student Writer
Haha, I'm great, Maddy, thanks! I get a lot of time to write over Thanksgiving break (I'll be in the car for about ten hours), so I'm pretty happy. How about you... any writing going on, or are you taking a break?

I'm glad to see you on dA regardless!
