Once upon a time (back in July), I decided to treat myself to a big ass framed version of one of my favorite enerjax prints, titled “Benedict the Actor,” from Society6. A few days after I placed the order, it was shipped. And then somehow, despite the fact that the package was HUGE, it got lost in transit somewhere in Texas. I contacted the lovely humans at Society6’s customer service department, and they promptly shipped me a replacement. It arrived last week and is currently adorning one of my walls.
But the story doesn’t end there.
Yesterday some sort of glitch happened and I received an email from Society6 telling me that they were shipping me yet another framed print. Gadzooks! I thought, and I immediately contacted customer service to inform them of the error and ask them what should be done about it. Their kind response was basically do with it as you wish! ♥
And so there is only one thing I can possibly do with this print. Have a giveaway!!!
This is a large (36” x 28”) gallery print with a vector black frame (a close-up detail of the frame is included above). The front is covered with premium shatterproof acrylic and the back is covered with an acid free dust cover. The one I have received already came in absolutely perfect and pristine condition.
The one that is currently en route to me will end up moving on to one of you lucky Tumblr folk.
As always, there are rules and shit. Please make sure you read these thoroughly before entering the giveaway:
- You don’t have to be following me. I’d really prefer it if you were (because I’m selfish that way), but I’m not going to insist on it this time. But if you’re entering the giveaway, take a closer look at my dumb blog and you might like what you see enough to stick around for a while.
- NO GIVEAWAY BLOGS. I will be checking this.
- Both likes and reblogs count. You may reblog this post as many times as you want, but please be mindful of your followers and don’t spam the living daylights out of them.
- My previous giveaways have been open to people worldwide, but due to the size of this package, I have no choice but to limit this giveaway to people living in the U.S. and Canada ONLY. I am willing to pay the $$ to ship to the U.S. and Canada, but the cost of shipping outside of the U.S. and Canada will basically be insane and make me cry. And you don’t want to see that, because I’m a super ugly crier.
- The winner will be chosen by a random number generator.
- This giveaway will end at 11:59pm PDT on September 30th, 2014. I will notify the winner on October 1st, 2014. The winner will then have 5 (five) days to respond. If the winner does not respond within those 5 days, the prize will be considered forfeited. A new winner will then be chosen via random number generator.
- You must be willing to provide me with your name and address so that I can ship the package to you.
- When the package arrives here, I will open it long enough to remove the invoice and do a quick visual inspection to make sure there has been no damage in shipping. I will then seal it back up with mailing tape, and the print will then be shipped to the winner in its original packaging.
- If I discover that the print has sustained damage while en route to me, this giveaway will be canceled immediately.
- I will be shipping via either UPS or FedEx, whichever one is cheaper.
- I reserve the right to make changes to these rules at any time. If I do make any changes, I will reblog this post outlining what changes I’ve made.
I think that pretty much sums it up. Have fun, and good luck!
And in the meantime, make sure you check out all of the goodies available at enerjax’s Society6page!
Sherlock in bed, his phone on the nightstand. The screen lights up, his long fingers reach for it. He reads the message. Lestrade. And then he turns and nudges John gently to wake him up because they have a new case.
A scene like that would be enough for me, to be honest.
Reminder: ask Sherlock if he’d be up for some light bondage.

OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Is it just me, or do Sherlock and John both make the same funny face?
Mirroring. It’s where one person copies another person’s body language. It’s a (usually unconscious) sign of being in agreement/social harmony with them. A demonstration of empathic connection, basically.
We tend to mirror people we’re close to a lot—friends, family, lovers. It’s why old married couples sometimes start “looking alike” to us. Ahem.
Great stuff, by the way, for a job interview or flirting. People usually don’t even notice you’re doing it; they just start feeling more favorable towards you.
Also it’s darling.
As a body language buff, I second the above explanation! Also, if you are attracted to someone, or they are attracted to you, you will start mirroring each other’s body language even if you don’t know them very well.
I love it. And they’re both lying to each other here - hence the tight-lipped expression they’re both using. Sherlock is lying about his relationship to Janine and how “affirming” it is, and John is lying about seeming happy about it. :P
"It’s a disgrace, sending your little brother into danger like that. Family is all we have in the end, Mycroft Holmes."
I feel like in the context of His Last Vow, Mycroft’s reaction in this scene makes a lot more sense.
I’ve always thought Mycroft’s “Oh, shut up, Mrs. Hudson!” was a strange, and bizarrely strong, reaction on his part. It’s true that he’s capable of being just as callouss and socially inept as Sherlock, but we also know that his position has caused him to develop a certain level of manners and diplomacy. It seems out of character for him to lose his composure just because a sweet old lady chastises him.
Unless she was touching on a sensitive subject.
Imagine that this line in His Last Vow implies what we think it implies: that there was a third Holmes brother, and that Mycroft was somehow involved in his demise.
If he’s harboring guilt about this it’s no wonder he prickles at Mrs. Hudson’s seemingly innocent comment.

Oh, by the way, Sherlock—do you remember Redbeard?
