Yeah... I dunno  
I feel like there needs to be a crack Sherlock/The Great Mouse Detective crossover fic where modern!Basil is incensed that people believe Sherlock is a fake and he and Dawson decide to prove his innocence and leave little hints for John to find.

...this is why it was a mistake giving me an imagination. I don't do anything useful with it.

Oh God, it's been ages since I've seen TGMD. I'd need to refamiliarize myself with it to give any justice to the voices. I just love the idea of a little modern!221b under 221b and Basil and Dawson keeping any eye on their counterparts.

oh YES, I loved that aspect of TGMD, the fact it was Holmes and Watson above them. (btw- It's *ahem* accessible if you need to find it in that sort of way, I could point you to where)

I imagine even my tiny video store has it, I might go out and rent it. And I think I have a post liked on Tumblr that can help me out if that doesn't work.

Thanks though!

I recently reblogged a link so you probably do have it. :)

Now the very important questions: is Dawson 'David' in this modern version, if Watson is John? And do the mice have access to a mouse version of the internet?
donutsweeperdonutsweeper on October 25th, 2012 11:41 pm (UTC)
I would think there would be a mousernet or something for them to use. Hmmmm about David vs Dawson though. I forgot that was his first name, but I suppose it would be used.

I'm having a very hard time not inserting 'mouse' into every other word. :P Basil doesn't seem to have any other name in canon, so I guess it's his first name. I don't know if I like David, though. I'll have to think about it...

...I feel really weird contemplating these things.

I think going with Basil and Dawson is fine, even in BBC's version Lestrade was still Lestrade.

Yeah. And maybe mice have different cultural norms or Dawson just prefers his last name from his army years. It's going to be confusing enough already without me switching up names.

So far I'm just having fun translating everything into mouse. I've decided Basil will have a Holeless Network. And that the mouse hospital under Barts will be St. Gertrude's. She's the patron saint against fear of mice. She's apparently usually depicted with mice crawling all over her.

Oh, that really sounds GOOD! I like the world you're building there.

I feel like I ran across a Sherlock/The Great Mouse Detective crossover fic at some point. But it definitely didn't have this hilariously awesome plot you just threw out!

The Writer They Call Tay: DH: Coming Alongawanderingbard on October 24th, 2012 02:54 am (UTC)
I saw someone rping as Basil once, who was on the case of Sherlock's death. And I've seen some fan art, too.


We'll see. It looks like I'll have at least two readers interested. :-)

how is that not useful?

maybe I'm missing something, but I think that's a good idea.
(granted, I'm also relishing reading the scene where Sherlock confronts the "logical" impossibility of a talking mouse) *eg*

Okay, so about a month ago I re-watched that movie and had a very similar thought! It's totally adorable--and believable, too! I can completely buy that Sherlock's 221B might have a little, er, mouse problem, with all the stuff they have lying around. And of course Basil wouldn't stand for Sherlock's name to be tarnished! Maybe they could have witnessed the cameras being put up, too. :)
The Writer They Call Tay: DH: Coming Alongawanderingbard on October 24th, 2012 02:35 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm actually starting to build up a little fic in my head that Basil and Dawson have seen all the things that John didn't see and would be able to put the pieces of the puzzle together better than he could.

I may have to write this. I wish people wouldn't encourage me in my madness. It's not healthy! :p
