By now, it should be no secret to anyone that the titular character of the hit TV show House was based on Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous creation, Sherlock Holmes. I first picked up on it when I started watching the show my freshman year of college. But I only recently started rewatching season 1, and coming fresh from our Sherlock rewatch, I see the similarities much more clearly than I did all those years ago. House is the perfect Sherlock AU, and here’s why.

Obvious. Dull. Holmes = House (a play on words, since the British pronunciation of the former is “homes”). Also, Watson = Wilson. Next.

Sherlock series 3 is set to premiere in the US January 19, 2014 at 10pm on PBS and I’ve decided to get back to my original OTP, the one and only Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson.

Confession time. I have avoided discussing Sherlock for about 6 months now. I haven’t watched the show, read any fanfic (except one-shot smut, cause, come on) or sent angry hate mail to Moffat for the delay of my favorite consulting detective and his boo from returning to the small screen. I just silently weep into my tea and try not to think about the Reichenbach Fall, waiting patiently for series 3. PATIENCE BE DAMNED.

How I feel about being patient, as played by Jawn.
