Alternate Universes: Soulmates, parody Sherlock comic by Amy Crook

Alternate Universes: Soulmates
parody Sherlock comic by Amy Crook

For Friday we have purples, and one of the sweetest AUs in fandom: Soulmates. This is a magical realism AU where there’s some sort of mystical way that people are matched up at birth, and they have to search to find their perfect match. It takes the myth of the divided soul and puts names on people’s arms, or clocks counting down, or bits of poetry or some other plot device to show that the characters are literally made for each other.

In this case, I went for the name on the arm trope, and you can see John’s got his own wrist covered in a cuff, politely shielding his soulmate’s name from prying eyes, while Sherlock just used nicotene patches for dual-purpose covering up.

Alternate Universes: Soulmates, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper. Get the whole comic as a print at Etsy.
