Summary: John's therapist has determined that blogging isn't helping him rehabilitate. It is her decision that John needs to do something to supplement writing or he won't accept that adventure isn't part of his life anymore. It's a pity John finds drawing quite boring - mostly.
Original Prompt: By sostrangechild on my fic "Not Quite Safe" here: "John takes up drawing as a hobby in the little time he gets to himself. Tiring of drawing trees, the kettle, and the chemistry apparatus, he begins to draw Sherlock when the man is deep in thought, and won't move for days. Being this focused, he doesn't notice John at first, but discovers John's sketchbook a few days later. He routinely steals it from there in. :)"
Notes: This didn't turn out quite what sostrangechild was expecting, methinks. And it was prompted about 6 months ago now, so just a little late, but I know that sostrangechild had to spend today doing lovely fun things like tedious and boring assignments all day, so this is to make her day just a little brighter, hopefully (given it's not exactly what's expected, but the prompt is there! Just not... obvious...). Strange, this is for you!
Also, I do imagine the stolen picture would look like this, but author's rules say look at it after reading.
