and they both fall in love with strong stocky blondes because they're awesome like that

So I was chatting with some fellow Potterheads about a Potterlock fic I’m thinking of starting. The Holmes’s would (obviously) be an old and powerful pureblood family, so we were geniuses and like “Why can’t Sherlock have some awesome cool magical item too?” but I couldn’t even begin to think what he’d inherit when this amazing girl suggested an item from Merlin.

And I died.

No, but really. It was brilliant. I’m a huge Merlin fangirl, so I automatically thought of Colin Morgan.

I could so see Sherlock as a descendant of Colin’s Merlin.

I mean, the hair! And the cupid’s bow lips! And the ridiculous cheekbones!

Please tell me you see this.
