In honor of the day Sherlock and John met, January 29th [link]
I present you My Little Sherly and John. (I don\'t know what the generally accepted ship name is but Shwatsonlock sounded cool)
Sherlock would say "Your tiny foal minds would not be able to comprehend the complexity that is my cutie mark." but for those who wish to know here's the breakdown
Sherlock's cutie mark is a brain wrapped in electron rings with a violin, his magnifying glass, and a skull on them. Sherlock has such a complicated brain and life's purpose that I felt he cutie mark had to reflect that.
The brain is for his intellect, the rings are for his use of science and experiments, the violin is for his musical abilities, the magnifying glass is for his detective skills and the skull is for his general lack of friends and such.
Because Sherly here has such an intense cutie mark I felt that I couldn't give John something too simple either. He has the general caduceus medical symbol with a blogger symbol on top.
The green and brown of the snakes pay homage to his servitude in the army, the medical symbol as a whole is because he is, in fact, a doctor and the blogger signal symbol is for his blogging skills and connection to the outside world that Sherly lacks.
any questions and I'd be happy to answer them I actually have a small headcanon for their ponysonas. Found here: [link]
