Last night I had an epiphany and set about to make a blog resolution: With 221B Con on the horizon, I would do nothing in March but look forward. No looking back. Forward is where our optimism lies, where our hopes lie, and where 221B Con lies, at this point. So for one month, just one month, what if I was to only look forward?
And so it starts.
One thing I need to do for 221B Con is prepare myself for the rush of alternate Sherlocks. So many alternate universe versions of Sherlock and John turning up in cosplay, art, and discussion -- angels, fish, all sorts of things I never imagined. So to prepare, I thought I'd practices going through my scales, so to speak, a quick run through the alphabet of Sherlock AUs that might, or might not exist, A to Z. That ought to open up my brain a bit.
So here goes:
Airlock . . . 221B the space platform, naturally.
Brrrlock . . . Sherlock and John alone in Antartica.
Curlock . . . a Holmes milieu where all the good guys are now moustache-twirling blackguards!
Duhrlock . . . well, nobody's very bright in this one.
Earlock . . . Holmes, Watson, Lestrayd, etc., all a part of the peerage.
Furlock . . . yeah, been done, fur sure.
Girlock . . . Shirley and Joan when they were wee lasses.
Herlock . . . really, really done, and pretty well at that.
Irelock . . . leprechauns?
Jarlock . . . Sergeant Holmes and Private Watson of the U.S. Marines.
Kerrlock . . . okay, this one is based on one of my ancestry lines, so probably not written yet.
Lurelock . . . anglers detecting trout.
Murlock . . . nope, not mermen this time -- World of Warcraft murlocks! HAROWWWWWW!
Nerdlock . . . Big Bang Theory on Baker Street.
Orelock . . . Gold Rush prospector John and Sherlock staking claims!
Pearlock . . . yeah, clams.
Qwertlock . . . 1930s business school typist Sherlock and John.
Ruralock . . . American Gothic fan art is the centerpiece of this one.
Stirlock . . . Holmes and Watson in prison!
Turdlock . . . Mr. Hankey has a case for the boys!
Urolock . . . The world's greatest consulting urologist.
Virglock . . . well, we'll see how long they can stay in this genre.
Whirlock . . . John and Sherlock must battle as pieces in an old Battling Tops game.
Xerxlock . . . forget Moriarty, Leonidas is going down!
Yourlock . . . Sherlock reincarnated as Watson's Tamagotchi.
Zurlock . . . Sherlockian fanfic based entirely on a single "Magic: The Gathering" card.
Okay, that bit of exercise is done for the night!
Can't wait for tomorrow! Looking forward to it, actually, the motto of the firm. (This month!)
