Here's something about me. I tend to avoid the bandwagon as often as I can, but will usually end up joining somewhere down the road (though preferably when the hype has dissipated). It's not intentional, I think I just get irritated when large groups of people all enjoy one thing and display their joy, I don't know how else to describe it. Take when a new iPhone comes out or how huge the Harry Potter books were back in the late 90s and the movies after that. I avoided these things for years and it wasn't until Twilight became the new sensation that I read HP and watched all the movies from front to back. I think the hype makes me feel like something is blinding the masses. But eventually the hype does die down, and I quietly enjoy these things.

Sherlock is one of those things, the internet just exploded with how awesome the new series was and how much they loved actor Cumberbatch, but found myself avoiding the series as hard as I could. I recently caved and began watching, and immediately saw why that actor appeals to everyone. I couldn't tell from the still images, but his deep voice and myriad of facial expressions are fun to listen to and watch. But another thing about me is that during movies and tv shows where mystery or apprehension is an aspect, I consistently try to guess how the show will turn out. I mean, in little ways. I can't tell you how a show is going to end and everything is going to tie together but I usually am really good at picking up foreshadowing and noticing when a story is attempting to lead me in a specific direction. I might not be able to guess the ending, but I can usually pick up when the story makes subtle hints at who is going to die or when someone is lying about something they said. And Sherlock is full of fun twists and turns to keep me guessing, it really is a very entertaining series.

That's all.

Wow, thank you for all the points! I don't even... *head explodes*

Even though I have no idea what I've done to deserve that Llama Emoji-02 (Blush) [V1]

A few years ago I started a personal campaign to donate premium memberships to users I thought deserved the attention, I've spent hundreds of dollars doing just that. You sent me a llama and I saw your donation pool with the caption underneath stating a similar mission so I donated a handful of my points to help you. :)
Cheers.

You, sir, earned my respect for that!
If I had money, I'd probably do something similar, since I love giving things (but have a hard time to accept gifts...)
I wish you all the best.

From my vague perception skills, you seem to have a broadly open mind. You look a little young from your dA ID so A. If you're not, then well what do you expect from me? I'm not an FBI profiler. But it would explain your writings and art; the experience you've gleam from would then be very apparent in them. Or B. You really are quite young and open mindedness at such a young age is pretty unique in this day and age.

Either way, be it literary or visual, I can't wait to see how your art evolves in the coming years. Cheers.

Thanks. I'm pretty young, yeah. Still a teenager, still a child.
Thanks, I can't wait to see it changes too, I'm excited and scared. :]

I most certainly wasn't implying that you were a child, I'm not partcularly aged. I was merely saying that while you look young, your literature suggests maturity :)
