"Well, I have a trade of my own. I suppose I am the only one in the world. I'm a consulting detective, if you can understand what that is. Here in London we have lots of Government detectives and lots of private ones. When these fellows are at fault, they come to me, and I manage to put them on the right scent. They lay all the evidence before me, and I am generally able, by the help of my knowledge of the history of crime, to set them straight..."


I walked over to the window, and stood looking out into the busy street. 'This fellow may be clever,' I said to myself, 'but he is certainly very conceited.'

~From the chapter 'The Science of Deduction' in A. Conan-Doyle's 'A Study in Scarlet'.

Watson's first impressions of Holmes are so very cute ^.~ I can just imagine Holmes standing there with his slight conceited smirk as he tells Watson what he does. It's only after I finished the picture that I realised that I was pairing a primarily scarlet picture with a quote from A Study in Scarlet. Hehe.
