For those who don't know about Asexuality, please give the topic a few minutes of your time! You can read more about what asexuality is at the AVEN website. Here is a link to AVEN's brief overview: ASEXUALITY BASICS
Today's fandoms are Harry Potter and the BBC 2010 Sherlock. Yes, fandoms. You heard me. That means crossover. Behold, the insanities that pour forth from my head when I'm sick. Do read the notes!
Title: Of Like Minds
Prompt: Asexuality Awareness Week.
Word Count: 1211
Characters: asexual!Harry Potter, asexual!Sherlock Holmes
Warnings: Insane crossover AU snippet. Also, still not beta'd.
Summary: In which Harry has a problem, and Sherlock offers some unexpected advice.
Notes: So, uh. There was a point when I realized how eerily similar Sherlock Holmes is to the movie!Snape. Listen to them talk. Cumberbatch's Sherlock sounds disturbingly similar to Alan Rickman. Also, note the fondness for dramatic entrances/exits. Chemistry, potions, acidic snark. So this AU popped up in my head in which Sherlock is actually an alternate universe incarnation of Snape, and somehow Dumbledore summons him and John to Hogwarts to solve an uncrackable murder mystery (or something like that). And everyone is weirded out by Sherlock's antics, and Sherlock is viciously critical of and condescending towards wizarding society. And much hilarity ensues. Don't judge me for this. Also, in this fic, Harry is a bit older when the Triwizard Tournament happens, solely because it felt like it worked better that way for the purposes of this fic. Think fifteen or sixteen. I dunno. It's an AU. Just run with it.
