If I ever met Benedict and Martin ...

Benedict - Metro
... it would apparently look something like this ...

Drawing by Squire 09 09 14

My fabulous friend Squire (aka Danlef) drew this for me without any advance warning, and I'm still flailing wildly nearly 24 hours later.

(I would point out that apparently I'm sitting on an upturned box or something in the picture, because I am definitely not shorter than Martin in real life!)

Ah, my dream is to one day cosplay this image with the real Martin and Ben.

Thank you so much for this, Squire! It was such a brilliant surprise.

I'm sorry but this drawing is very inaccurate. Not realistic at all. I mean, you shouldn't even be in the frame. You should be lying on the floor at Benedict's and Martin's feet, flailing uncoordinatedly and making dolphin sounds instead of just standing there and looking nonchalant. That, or your self-control is much better than mine. :D

Artistic license! LOL

But yeah, that's totally accurate for most of us.

Ah, maybe that's why I'm sitting on a box. I probably spent the last half hour flailing and making dolphin sounds and the boys finally got fed up with me, picked me up, plonked me on the box and yelled, "For God's sake, someone, take the bloody picture so that we can get out of here!" And that's not a nonchalant look - it's a glazed look of complete incomprehension: "How did I get to be this lucky?"

Two seconds after this photo is taken, the boys walk away and I fall backwards off the box ...

Such a lovely gift! Fandom pressies are the best.

In my humble opinion, it's Martin who is standing on a box, definitely fed up being all the time shorter than his fans. And Ben is just playing along.

Glad you like it! It's been fun googling the reference photos, you can imagine :-)

So after all this time it finally dawns on me: is your squire icon drawn by you?!
11th-Sep-2014 01:36 pm (UTC)
No - my LJ icon is in fact a lineart from a colouring book (I'm squire as the knight's servant, not the landed gentry kind).

My AO3 icon is a crossbow, my weapon of choice.

But as you mention it now, I could make myself an icon... let's see:)

What a great gift - and nice to meet you!

Here's hoping one day that sketch will turn into a photograph . . . :)
