The X-Files’ agents Mulder and Scully are such a beloved duo, and I wanted to have John and Sherlock take on their guises - hence ginger!John, lol. Ah, I think the correlations between these two partnerships are so vast! I can’t help but write a bit about them… (rambling ahead)
John Watson and Dana Scully are both medical doctors with strong morals and sensible thinking. They wind up working with (much taller XD) counterparts - Sherlock Holmes and Fox Mulder - who have funny first names, great minds, and methods that are beyond unorthodox. Their flair for unusual cases attracts criticism from peers along with all sorts of danger, but they’ll do anything to discover the truth! Although John and Scully are both urged to spy on their new partners at the beginning, they choose instead to believe in them and become their ultimate allies. Scully is Mulder’s “touchstone” and “one in five billion.” John is Sherlock’s “conductor of light” and “one” friend… <3 <3 <3
God, I was so obsessed with The X-Files… “The Hounds of Baskerville” is actually my favourite Sherlock episode because it was so much like one of their crazy cases!
