Random Thoughts for the Day


Tags: , , , ,
I love my motorcycle. It makes me happy...

...except when I sneeze with the face shield down. This is why, as I've said in the past, I really don't mind trees having sex but really wish they'd stop doing it in my nose.

Good dogs, no matter how old and big, are always puppies.

In my new head canon, Dr. Gregory House is totally BBC Sherlock's father. I am definitely not half-way contemplating writing a crossover fic on this. Nope. Not at all. (Thanks to nikibee for the link to this awesome fanvid that first planted the idea in my head.)

Grading sucks but I'm almost done with the big midterm crunch and won't have anything major for at least a month, so yay!

PERFECT HEADCANON IS PERFECT. Somehow it had never really occurred to me till one day when I was watching Sherlock and said, "OMG they're just like House and Wilson" that House is just doctor!Sherlock Holmes. I can be slow on the uptake... But anyway, yes, I want to read this.

What season are you in now? I just had a dream last night about bawling through the House finale as House...died. *cries*

I finished Season 6 this week and there I shall stop, at least for now. I can't get season 7 both free and legally and I've heard season 7 and 8 are pretty bad in comparison to what came before.

I knew House and Wilson were supposed to be Holmes and Watson before I started watching the show so maybe I was primed for noticing Sherlock Holmes references, but they are all over House. Their job descriptions (only take the interesting cases that no one else could solve), their addresses (House lives at 221B though I don't remember it ever being said that it is Baker Street but I have a nagging feeling it might be), House gets a first or second edition Conan Doyle as a Christmas present one year, Wilson uses the name Irene Adler when he makes up a woman with a mysterious past with House to wind up House's team one time, etc.

The two big problems with a House as Sherlock's dad crossover is making the ages work (though I don't think Sherlock's is ever specified so if necessary could be fudged up to maybe 7 years either side of Benedict Cumberbatch's) and is House also Mycroft's dad or not. Yes seems like the more interesting option for the later, but it is less plausible, I think.

Of course, I can't figure out House's own timeline from before the show starts because the dates in the show almost never make sense. House and Cuddy have a c. ten year age difference (based on her age being given as 38 in one season and him mentioning his age as c. 50 a couple or three seasons later) yet were in med school at the same time? Some things online have it as him being in his last year of med school and her being a premed undergrad, but why would a last year med student and an undergrad be in the same class?

Sources online have informed me she apparently admits in season 7 that she was lying about her age, but it appears to only be a 2 year shift and I think they are supposed to be about 10 years apart even with that taken into consideration. So they could never have been in a class together, even if it was his last year of med school and her first year undergrad which still makes no sense, without at least a couple of years gap for him somewhere and all this has to be before he is kicked out of his first med school (Hopkins?) so his repeating some of med school doesn't factor in yet (what school did he graduate from?)

This is the problem with show writers not being as obsessed with continuity and details as fanfic writers!

OMG, it has always driven me crazy that House, Cuddy, and Wilson were all supposedly in med school together when Lisa Edelstein is obviously quite a bit younger than Hugh Laurie. Though maybe there could be a case for House not gong to med school straight out of undergrad?

The two big problems with a House as Sherlock's dad crossover is making the ages work (though I don't think Sherlock's is ever specified so if necessary could be fudged up to maybe 7 years either side of Benedict Cumberbatch's) and is House also Mycroft's dad or not. Yes seems like the more interesting option for the later, but it is less plausible, I think.

Could Mycroft be related in some other way? Like maybe he's House's brother? He looks closer to Hugh's age than Benedict's.

I think every show has this issue! they probably can't afford to be as obsessive as we are. Which is ironic since they're the ones getting paid. ;)

Not gonna lie, I've rewatched that vid an embarrassingly high number of times. And I'm not one to rewatch fanvids after I first see them.

So yes, I would adoooooore any House-as-Sherlock's-father fic that you write. DO IT!
