Don't judge me. I just really don't want to be working on my 40 page paper right now.

Name 5 crossovers that should happen.


1. Sherlock and Death in Paradise
If no one picks up my challenge on this, I might do it one day just so that I can have Poole and Sherlock working together and driving everyone crazy, including each other. Poole is like the significantly more imaginative, smarter version of Lestrade so he and Sherlock would constantly clash over protocol or lack thereof and probably fight each other on who gets to do the impressive reveals at the end. Meanwhile, John and Camille can just roll their eyes and have a drink over how impossible it can be to work for two eccentrics. Camille would probably make a comment about Poole being so "ridiculously English. No offense."

2. Supernatural and Good Omens
If only so that the two Crowleys can meet and the world can explode. As dangerous as SPN!Crowley is, I feel like GO!Crowley being the First Evil would wipe the floor with him. Plus, I'd really want to see what sort of conversation Dean and Aziraphale might have.

3. The Dresden Files and Grimm
I really like the idea of Harry and Nick working together. Mainly because Nick is so well-adjusted in so many ways and Harry is so not when it comes to balancing their supernatural lives to their regular ones. Plus, Monroe and Bob would love each other.

4. Sherlock and The Dresden Files
I think I only say this because I secretly want Lestrade and Murphy to get together. Plus, all the added hilarity of Sherlock having to contend with a world where magic is real. It might make his head explode.

5. Being Human UK and Sherlock
Basically what I'm saying here is that Sherlock can be crossed over with anything. Again, I'd want to see Sherlock dealing with a world where supernatural things are real. Plus, guardian_chaos introduced the hilarious idea of Hal having a freakout over the disarray at Baker Street.

I am addicted to SPN/GO crossovers, and I don't even like SPN. :| Also Dresden Files and Grimm sounds hilarious and amazing. I wish it would happen.

Are there already tons of SPN/GO crossovers? I need to read them!

There's definitely a few! If you check out the GO section on AO3 there's a few long ones...they're not always the best quality (and some are kind of...weird) and a bunch conflate the two Crowleys, but I just cannot stop reading them. There's something about *any* outsider!POV GO fic that means I have to read it.

I did have a DF/Sherlock crossover going at one point, but then I started writing a Castle/Sherlock crossover and recycled some of the deductions from Murphy to use on Beckett, so I have dueling crossovers. I'll have to rewrite one or the other. I too ship Lestrade/Murphy.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can crossover Sherlock with everything else. I'd like to see a Sherlock/Lewis crossover. I think Sherlock and Hathaway would try to out clever each other. And Lewis and John would be drinking heavily to get through it all.

Oh god, Sherlock would hate Hathaway. The idea that someone with a clever brain could have almost been a priest...! He'd be appalled that Hathaway even considered believing in something not in front of his eyes. I doubt he would have gotten along better with Morse, though...Morse would be a little too establishment for Sherlock, even with the brain.
The Writer They Call Tay: SHERLOCK: Watson giggleawanderingbard on May 7th, 2012 12:38 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen enough Morse to know how much Sherlock would or wouldn't have liked him, but I'm in total agreement about Sherlock and Hathaway. Though they're both amateur musicians, so that might win Hathaway some points.

I'm not sure how much Sherlock would care about people's religious beliefs in general. I don't think he would be pleased about Hathaway's former career choice and would certainly mock it, but I think religion would be one of those things he couldn't be arsed about. "I don't care who you're sleeping with or what God you pray to unless it's relevant to a case. I just want to look at your shoes and be clever about them."

Oh Sherlock and his manic genius and Hathaway and his laconic smartness. I can also see Lewis fighting down the urge to punch Sherlock in the face. To which John would say he did that once and yes, it was just that satisfying.
The Writer They Call Tay: DH: Coming Alongawanderingbard on May 7th, 2012 02:29 am (UTC)
I think Sherlock and Hathaway have similar enough backgrounds that they might have gone to the same schools. Sherlock either had to go to Cambridge or Oxford, so they could have been at Uni together, though obviously not studying the same thing. I think they're roughly the same age? I would check but the wi-fi is being a whiny brat at the moment.

Have you read any of the Agent Pendergast novels by any chance? Because I want to crossover with them too.

Too many crossovers, not enough time.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on May 7th, 2012 02:39 am (UTC)
I think they're roughly the same age?

If we go by the ages of the actors playing them, then yes, they're only about a year or so apart. They would have been contemporaries at Cambridge (I'm mentally putting Sherlock there because that's Hathaway's alma mater) though I imagine Sherlock would have only scoffed at Hathaway's conflict over whether to be Mozart or Jesus.

I haven't read any of them but I swear you and I must have discussed them at some point because Pendergast sounds familiar.

[...]though I imagine Sherlock would have only scoffed at Hathaway's conflict over whether to be Mozart or Jesus.

Yeah, I can't see them getting along really well for the reasons Katarzi mentioned. Also because Sherlock doesn't get along well with anyone. Though they might have been part of the same music scene. Hathaway's musical tastes run toward classical music. Well, weird renaissance hybrid music.

I haven't read any of them but I swear you and I must have discussed them at some point because Pendergast sounds familiar.

I think I may have mentioned him in a Sherlock review, once, in regards to Sherlock's memory palace. Pendergast also has one of those, though his is a New Orleans giant ass memory mansion.

They're a really, really great series of books by a Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child. A bit violent and can be sort of unsettling at times, but you seem to have an even higher tolerance than I do for that sort of thing. Pendergast goes around looking into weird cases that seem to have a supernatural element to them and tries to do science to solve them. He'd totally dig what happened in Baskerville. They also feature some truly kickass female characters.

4. Sherlock and The Dresden Files

Sherlock and Bob. That's the scene I want to see. I want to see Sherlock trying to deduce the past of a man long dead and Bob's reaction to him. I'm sure John would be quite amused to watch, once he got over his surprise (which probably wouldn't take awfully long).

Way more fun than a forty-page paper (which seems excessively long to me. That's master's thesis length. Too long for some articles, too short for a dissertation. What's the point if you're not actually writing a master's thesis? Of course, I don't actually know your field. I just like to judge.)

I do wonder if Sherlock would get anything right. I would think not given that logic in the way Sherlock knows it doesn't apply to Bob.

This is a conversation I've had with everyone in this class. And yes, when I wrote my masters thesis, it was about 40 pages. This is not a masters thesis. Consequently, I feel like no one is going to hand in an actual 40 page paper. I'll be lucky if mine reaches 30.

And that would be hilarious. Sherlock would be so frustrated!

"The state of the shoes show a man whose last prolonged visit was to Sacramento but has recently remained housebound," Sherlock rattled off. It was subtle but to John who was so used to hearing Sherlock in this mode could hear the slight twinge of desperation in his tone.

"To be fair," Bob replied. "These shoes are not strictly mine. I modeled them after a gentleman who came to inquire after Harry's services last month."

"Oh, yeah," remembered Harry. "The German guy with the possible poltergeist. I don't think he'd ever been to Sacramento. He said it was his first and only time to States," he said somewhat apologetically to Sherlock.

"Your jacket-"

"Again, not strictly speaking mine," Bob interrupted. "Unless you were going to say that the original came from a warlock who specialized in antique Cromholt caskets and who had an affinity toward categorizing his Grimmoires by place of origin rather than by author."

Judging by Sherlock's expression, clearly none of that had been in his mind.

"Bob doesn't get out much though," Harry offered. "That part's right. And 1 out of 3's-"

"A failing grade," Bob stated, dryly.

AHAHAHAHA!

I actually feel a little bad for Sherlock. Just a teeny bit. I bet John is trying very hard not to grin openly.
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on May 7th, 2012 01:20 am (UTC)
I bet John is trying very hard not to grin openly.

He'll give up at some point and just laugh.

"This is not going to work!" Sherlock fumed. "I have no concept or history of a world inhabited by wizards, witches, ghosts, and other creatures which until now have been widely considered fictional!"

"Complaining of ignorance is the last and most pitiful defense of those with paltry intellect," Bob intoned with little forgiveness.

Sherlock and John blinked.

"He said the same thing to me when I was 10 and couldn't recite back Groyer's Chant in the original Latin," said Harry.

I stopped watching Grimm after three episodes I think. Strangely since you wrote of Grimm getting darker I am getting intrigued and now that you say a crossover with DF would be great I just HAVE to catch up with Grimm! :) :D

I am also way behind Sherlock, but I started reading guardian_chaos crossover with DF/SPN/Sherlock and I think I have to catch up there too! ;)

And sorry to butt into other conversations but aelfgyfu_mead idea that Sherlock tries to deduce things from Bob is pure gold! :D :D :D

Another crossover that must happen in my opinion is DF/Merlin! :D
formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on May 7th, 2012 01:07 am (UTC)

Oh right! We'd have previous conversations about how the Council would travel back in time and be bowing like crazy at Merlin's feet while both Merlin and Arthur look completely perplexed. And how later Harry and Bob cannot believe that gawky kid is the original Merlin.

Harry stared. "That...that can't be..."

"A part of me may be dying all over again," Bob said, miserably.
quickyfant: smilequickyfant on May 7th, 2012 01:11 am (UTC)
I am currently catching up with the last episodes of season three of Merlin! Yes, I know, terribly behind schedule, but I honestly havent got the time, now I am avoiding reality and squeezing all I can into this last hours of Sunday! ;) But watching Merlin again, and reading your post, its just too funny, also the reaction of Harry towards Arthur could be so good! :) Well and the reaction of Arthur to people bowing not to him, but to Merlin! >:D

This made me grin so much "A part of me may be dying all over again," Bob said, miserably.

I wonder what Mycroft and Morgan would make of each other? That could be an interesting encounter.

And I can just see Sherlock talking to Bob's skull...

Or Ancient Mai and Mycroft!

And I can just see Sherlock talking to Bob's skull...

Harry and Sherlock would probably have a not so subtle competition over skulls.

"Look, man," Harry stated, firmly. "We're not going to be comparing skulls. It's morbid and also weird. Plus, mine comes with a ghost so there's no competition," he added quickly.

Bob sighed.
