Well. Anyone who knows me and my fandoms knew this was bound to happen someday. I always knew I wanted to have Chapel dressed up as Sherlock, and as I added Rupert I remembered that the Sherlock fandom on tumblr refers to John Watson as a hedgehog – so it seemed fitting that Rupert should wear a tiny sweater that looks like Watson’s from the program. For those of you who haven’t seen it, BBC Sherlock is a really amazing series! There are only 6 episodes, but each one is 90 minutes and is essentially a small movie, so it’s all good. Also, the phone Chapel’s holding plays an integral part in the first episode of Sherlock, which is called “A Study in Pink.”

Anyway, I had wayyyyy too much fun drawing Chapel in her Sherlock cosplay. I regret nothing!
I thought Rupert Watson meant RUPERT Grint and Emma WATSON 2 actors from the HP films!=)
The modern Holmes is very nice, but for me the ultimate Holmes will always be Jeremy Brett (also a BBC show). The Jeremy Brett series did the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories straight up, with excellent acting and perfect period feel. Brett had an amazing energy, taking over the screen without obviously overacting, and just sucking you into the idea that this is HOLMES. There were these bits in the stories where you meet some character and only later realize it was Holmes in disguise 'cos he's a master of disguise. So how they handled that in the show is you meet some character and only later realize it was Jeremy Brett in disguise 'cos he's a master of disguise.
Jeremy Brett actually got so deeply involved in the role that it gave him nightmares and may have contributed to a mental illness.

All that she needs to complete the costume is a pipe!
Sahir. 9/29/13
Yes, but she's dressing as the modern day Sherlock, who doesn't use one.
 Emma  11/7/13
I've never heard of the show until now, but I've read all the Sherlock Holmes books. They are amazing!
Bonzelle 8/17/13
I know, they really are!
 Emma  9/20/13
OMG. Sherlock. Is. So. AWESOME. I first started watching it just a couple of hours ago and am now completely obsessed. :D :D :D
Clockwork Wombat 12/28/12
I KNOW, it's so well done!
 Emma  3/8/13
In my mind:
Moriarty = MASHY SPIKE PLATE = Portal 2 = Time to play!
Haisen 8/9/12
Ha ha!
 Emma  10/8/12
I came here BECAUSE panel four was the ad. I was SURE it had to be amazing, and it was.

On the topic of BBC Sherlock, I'm torrenting the 3rd season as soon as it comes out in the UK. I'm not waiting half a year for it to reach the US!
Dare 7/13/12
Oh ha ha...tricky torrenting!
 Emma  10/8/12
I came to this comic because of the Tardis ad, but you know Emma, I would have come to read your comic if Panel 4 had been an ad.
Have you considered it? :)
Great comic by the way!
PennyPepperPants 6/23/12
I have made one of Panel 4 I think...I'll have to check!
 Emma  10/8/12
TRying to think of something interesting to comment about...
Whoever comes up with the most random sentence wins.
I'll start!
Chapel flew to the bread store on the back of an anime hippogriff, where she bought a pair of bright purple wigs and Emma and her wore them to the Holmes Ball.
Beat DAT.
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/27/12
If they have to do with Chapel then here:
Chapel went to Hawaii to eat burritos with her rainbow colored unicorn which then went to Uranus to punch the purple hippo.

Thanks! :)
Miss L.S.P 2/27/12
Anyone else for the random contest?
Miss L.S.P 2/27/12
Chapel meets a hare krishna finds out she is related to him and helps a sheepherder who's on the lam
Yarin 2/29/12
Great!!! ;D
Miss L.S.P 3/1/12
Ooh! Ooh! I want to make a random comment!

Chapel runs around a giant teapot with Robert E. Lee singing "Norwegian Wood" while splattering orange sparkly nail polish on the floor.

love it!

Chapel performs the greatest Yandere trance pose of great moe and psychopathic inclination.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/29/12
Oh my gosh this is the best one.
 Emma  2/29/12
You do know what "yandere trance" is, right?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/29/12
I don't get it, so I guess it's the best so far..... :)
Miss L.S.P 2/29/12
maybe it's time i let you in on something that is awesome. Yandere trance goes with ANYTHING. it is not gory nor x-rated. Yandere trance goes with Touhou, Vladimir Putin, transformers (the robots), your parents, minecraft (the PC game), any anime you dare to name, and any thing else you can think of, even maybe YOURSELF!

Just type it into your yahoo browser and see what i mean.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/1/12
Hey Emma, do you have a random sentence?
Miss L.S.P 3/1/12
Is it too late to enter? If not: Chapel ate chameleon food out of an old can while watching Much Ado About Nothing.
Sasha 2/29/12
Chapel filled a mustard bottle with liquid bread and fed it to her sparkly yellow dodo bird before going outside and climbing a tree to sing normally nonmusical ingredients to a recipe and painted the leaves with stripes.
Emily13 3/2/12
Chapel bought a snowy owl at the grocery store and also cooked dinner for her emaciated passenger pigeon before sending a letter to her great - grandmother in Russia.

Oh, do you mean on my tumblr? I'm glad you liked it, it was a super fun ask! :D You should get a tumblr account if you want, it's a really safe and fun community!
 Emma  2/26/12
Haha, luv it! Escpecially her outfit in the last panel ;)
I had a total mental lapse and forgot to check for the new comic yesterday JE SUIS TRÈS STUPIDE
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/25/12
Ooh! French! And I doubt that you are stupid if you were saying that..........
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
Haha, thanks! I'm taking French in school and it's my absolute favorite class! Le francais est amusant et ma prof est geinale! J'aime prendre le cours de francais!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/25/12
Cool! My parents are teaching me Chinese, but I do also want to learn French one day!
Miss L.S.P 2/26/12
Wow, that's awesome! Mandarin was an offered course at my school in middle school, but I didn't take it! Are your parents Chinese?
 Emma  2/26/12
Well, my mom is Chinese but my dad is American...... he can speak it though!
Miss L.S.P 2/26/12
I've always wanted to learn French, along with Italian! Since I already know Spanish, it shouldn't be too hard!
 Emma  2/26/12
Yeah, you really should! It's a great language to learn, and more useful than most people might think.
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/26/12
I have been trying to learn Irish language myself.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/27/12
My cousin goes to an all - Gaelick school, so she has to speak only in that language.
Ginny Weasley fan 4/2/12
I'm taking french too! But its probably less advanced.....
Ginny Weasley fan 4/2/12
Ha ha, you're not stupid! Far from it! And the comic will still be here if you check a day later :D
 Emma  2/26/12
Wow! I LOVE Chapel in the last panel! And Rupert!
Blarber123 2/25/12
I'm glad you like them! I'm REALLY pleased with how they turned out in that last panel, I think they look super cool!
 Emma  2/26/12
OK! Somebody PLEASE explain to me what this magic stuff is about....... I have NO idea what you are talking about and I just wanna know what's going on.........
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
Okay, basically, "magical girls" is a genre in anime and manga that tends to feature young girls with magical powers and floofy costumes. They often also have animal sidekicks. This all got started because of the commentator "Kyubey." Kyubey is a character in a magical girl anime called Puella Magi Madoka Magica. In this anime, the character Kyubey tries to convert people into magical girls. That's how this all got started! Hope that helps!
 Emma  2/26/12
Also, if you remember my Halloween strip, Chapel dressed up as a character called Cardcaptor Sakura. That's the main character of a famous magical girl anime, so if you look at that strip you can get an idea of what magical girls look like usually.
 Emma  2/26/12
Oh yeah, I remember that strip! Thanks for explaining it to me, it helps a lot.....
Miss L.S.P 2/26/12
I noticed that you are adding more subtle shading in your artwork Miss Emma. It looks much better now.

oh yea, you might want to update your Bio page now that you had another birthday. ;-)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/25/12
Yep! Bye Bye 14! Hello 15!!
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
Oh, good point, I'd totally forgotten about that! I updated the bio on my tumblr blog, but not on here, ha ha!
 Emma  2/26/12
Love your comic! You have a real talent for storytelling, and the expressions you draw are priceless.
Binque 2/25/12
Wow, thank you! That's SO sweet to hear!
 Emma  2/26/12
I like Chapel's expression in panel 2!
The whole wide-eyed thing is funny!
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
I'm glad you like it! I think it's funny too! :D
 Emma  2/26/12
Nice strip! ^^
Katherine 2/24/12
Thank you! :D
 Emma  2/26/12
Ohh, Rupert looks adorable. LOL

Emily13 2/24/12
Doesn't he? A hedgehog wearing a tiny sweater, you can't really beat that in terms of cuteness!
 Emma  2/26/12
No, no you can't.
Emily13 2/26/12
Yay new comic have you seen the new Sherlock movie it's really great in other news there is going to be a doctor who star trek tng crossover comic YAY it only took them 50 years
Yarin 2/24/12
Oh wow I didn't know that! And no, I don't watch the RDJ Sherlock movies, just the BBC miniseries.
 Emma  2/26/12
Sweet look Chapel! And I have seen a little of that first episode... but it was probably a different Sherlock Holmes.. I think it was called " Lady in Pink" but I am not too sure....
MIss L.S.P 2/24/12
Ugh! Sorry, I copied the same thing onto both comments!!! :P
MIss L.S.P 2/24/12
No problem! And it must've been a different Sherlock adaptation, because this first one is called "Study in Pink." Although there IS a lady in it who wears pink, so who knows...
 Emma  2/26/12
Yeah, I think it was a totally different Sherlock........ and yes, I remember there is a lady pink, who is dead......
Miss L.S.P 2/26/12
Sweet look Chapel!
MIss L.S.P 2/24/12
I know, right? So stylish, as expected of her! :D
 Emma  2/26/12
Chapel looks very nice in that coat, I think.

Also, I have absolutely no idea how you made her glow like that. I'm starting a webcomic and Photoshop is still pretty much a mystery to me.
Ginny Weasley fan 2/24/12
Cool! What is your webcomic called?
MIss L.S.P 2/24/12
It's called Caitlin + Kira. It's not up on the web yet but I'll let you guys know when it is. I won't give too much away, but I will say that Kira is a cat. Oh, and it's not realistic. AT ALL.
Ginny Weasley fan 3/2/12
Here, if you want to send me an email at etc[at]chapelchronicles[dot]com, I can show you how to do it!

(holds up a sign) "If Sherlock was a girl, we would have made sure she would be a magical girl. But alas, it was not to be."
Kyubey 2/24/12
All right, Kyubey, enough trying to convert everyone to magical girls.

(holds up a sign) "Making suitable young girls into magical girls is my mission after all. I made Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, Pocahontas, Amelia Earheart, and others into Magical girls just to name a few."
Kyubey 2/24/12
What is a MAGICAL GIRL! And why are you trying to convert everyone into it????!!!!
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
Yep, I am pretty much with Harry Potter PWNS all.... I have NO idea what you guys are talking about!

Yarin 2/25/12
Oh, um, thanks?
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
for that matter, if you really want the truth about Kyubey and the show that thing came from. get on tvtropes and look up "Puella Magi Madoka Magica". Just warning you all it is not plesant.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/25/12
Gross unpleasant? or..... um not appropriate pleasant? just wanna make sure cause I am a young person.....
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
well, not gross nor XXX level of unpleasnt. just brace yourself for a bittersweet end at best, bad end for worse kinda of unpleasntness.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/25/12
ok......ir I ever go to that website anyway.....
Miss L.S.P 2/25/12
I looked it up. Yes, it is kinda creepy...but I never watch or read manga or anime, so I'm safe ;D
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/25/12
you should read manga and watch some anime when you can. there is some really good stuff out there.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/26/12
TYPO! it should be if instead of ir!!!
Miss L.S.P 2/26/12
the website tvtropes can really suck you in and all of a sudden, you just spend all afternoon reading it. ><
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/26/12
YES! Thank you!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/25/12
As much as I love "The great detective" I absolutely hate with a passion the new series.... why? Because it's made Sherlock "cool" He was already a popular detective now he's moreso. Why can't we get awesome new versions of other classic series? Where's the new high budget Anne of Green Gables film? Why don't they remake Seven little Australians? What about a new Arsen Lupin? how about we make a new series based on some OTHER old story. Sherlock has been remade and released dozens of times already, enough, please! (Also I don't like the new series being contemporyly set. I liked the Victorian setting!)
Stikibunn 2/24/12
Well okayyy you never know, those other series might get rebooted as well, and the fact that Sherlock exists doesn't mean they WON'T be redone! And I think you should try the new series more, the writing is very good.
 Emma  2/24/12
:* :* :* Great job! Bravo! (Or Brava, I guess, since you're a girl.)
Me! 2/26/12
I'm just a sourpuss. I don't know why I don't like the new Sherlock. Probably it's because I hate contemporay reboots (like the war of the worlds film adaptations, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and other films of that nature)
I just realised that it could be more fun if we all decided that Sherlock and Moriarty are Time Lords... that'd be entertaining!
Stikibunn 2/28/12
*reads Stikibunn's comment and has no idea what is going on because HPPWNSALL is clueless*
*sees the word "Lupin"*
*eyes get wide and head snaps to screen*
Yeah, I know you're not talking about the HP Lupin (even though I have no idea what you are talking about...), but I had to get mah fangirling in. Consider it done.
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/25/12
Wow, I don't even know what the R.J in his name stands for, thanks for telling.....
Miss L.S.P 2/26/12
Actually I knew what the R stands for ;p
Miss L.S.P 2/27/12
I forgot to say goodnight to you.
