Desk lamp: “Soup du jour, hot hors d’oeuvre,
Why, we only live to serve,
Try the grey stuff; It’s delicious!
Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes!
They can sing! They can dance!
After all, John, this is—-“
John: ”SHERLOCK!!! WHAT DID YOU PUT IN MY COFFEE??”
A few hours later… (when the hallucinations have really taken hold):
John would make a terrifying Disney princess…
Crossover AU in which Lestrade becomes stranded in the past, meets the doctor, assumes the pseudonym “John Riddell” and …well…you know the rest (I won’t spoil the new DW episode if you still haven’t watched it).
The postcard reads:
So, I’m having quite a jolly good time as John Riddell! Picked up a lady friend today—someone you all may have heard of… She goes by “Neffie.”
P.S. Anderson, guess who’s got a pet dinosaur!
This is just a quick doodle before bed. Tomorrow, I’ll draw a lot more stuff for the dinosaur DW ep. And just in case anyone hasn’t seen it yet, I’ll tag these with “spoiler” (River would be proud ;D)
“John,” said Sherlock earnestly, “if I — if I’m not quite —” he stopped and tried again — “John, whatever happens, you will understand, won’t you?”
At the time, John had not realized the full import of those words.
Sherlock did not live to be 100.
But John would be haunted by the memories even when he was 99.

AU: Where Sherlock and John meet as kids and become the best of friends, and Sherlock does not fake his Reichenbach death but actually sacrifices his life for John’s. Also, in this version, Sherlock’s a year older than John vs. Doyle’s version where John is 2 years older than Sherlock if I remember correctly (And for those of you who couldn’t tell, the quotes are from Winnie-the-Pooh, A. A. Milne’s original book version)
On a scale from 1-10 how endearing or not endearing is this version of kid Sherlock? (1 being not endearing at all)
I need to know cause I want my renditions of kid Sherlock and kid John to be heart-achingly endearing
so I can make you all weep from the angst when I finish this animation.
