I fucking like.
I do like how the official Doctor Who tumblr reblogged this.
No. I will not start watching Merlin. Tumblr has exposed me to enough television as it is. I CAN’T HANDLE ANY MORE.
do iiiiit. watch meerrrlliiinn.
(also: this post of mine is decades old. HOW IS IT STILL GOING?)
I think this would get all kinds of gloriously awkward pretty damn fast. Harry’s going to wonder why Merlin is a servant boy and not a powerful wizard with a staff, and Arthur’s going to be wondering why apparent hunters wear such flimsy cloth.
Dean’s going to be wondering if Sherlock is possessed by an angel or a demon because godammit nobody but those guys acts like that, and John’s going to be wondering who on earth this special Doctor friend of Sherlock’s is.
Rory will wonder if a thirteen year old boy with a stick can really help before he remembers the Sonic Screwdriver is a stick and the Doctor acts about thirteen anyway. Sam will wonder if Arthur has Excalibur somewhere, and does this mean they’re hunting dragons again?
Sherlock will wonder how long it will take everyone but the Doctor and himself to figure out what’s going on.
The Doctor will probably wonder if everyone he’s picked up will like bunk-beds.
Dean will get in shouting matches with all the British people over the correct names of food.
Captain Jack will show up and try to seduce everybody except Harry. Dean will give him a bloody nose for trying and he will complain about early 21st century heternormativity while Dean glowers and talks about females in excess.
Sam will geek out over everything, which the Doctor finds delightful and Sherlock will find tedious.
And then Dean will try to hit on Amy, only to be interrupted by Rory and say, “You’re married to him!?”
i’m sorry, i keep reblogging my own post, but THE COMMENTS, MY GOD THE COMMENTS.
Rory will just spend most of his time gaping at Harry and nudging Amy because Harry Potter is real, and it’s like his childhood nerd dreams come true. Harry just wants to know why he’s the one who has to get rid of Voldemort if there are clearly far more qualified and of age people out there. When it’s all over he’ll take the winchesters back with him and they help him get rid of Voldemort. John and Merlin will get along fantastically while Sherlock and Arthur just want a clear shot at each others throat and complain loudly about each other while the other is in the room. And Arthur will still remain clueless about Merlin’s magic despite how unsubtle Harry is.
Gaius: Merlin, don't do anything.
Merlin: Of course not, Gaius. I won't.
(GOES AND DOES IT ANYWAY)
They all have Angels.
Therefore they are all the same show.
