Vid: Cat's in the Cradle (House/Sherlock/Fortysomething crossover)

I came up with and rejected about a dozen titles for this vid: Ouroboros (classy, no?), Sons of the Father, Like Father, Like Son, Daddy Dearest, Of House and Holmes, A House is not a Holmes, There's No Place Like Holmes and others just as patently dreadful. For obvious reasons, I eventually gave up and went back to basics.

Title: Cat's in the Cradle
Artist: Harry Chapin
Fandom: House/Sherlock/Fortysomething
Summary: In the beginning, there was Sherlock Holmes. And Holmes brought forth the brilliant doctor House, embodied by the lovely Hugh Laurie. Who prior to that in Fortysomething played a slightly less brilliant doctor, Paul Slippery, who begat three sons, the eldest of whom was played by the equally-lovely-if-somewhat-peculiarly-named Benedict Cumberbatch. Who of course grew up to play Sherlock. And the Universe looked upon its work and pronounced it good. And then my head exploded. (Thanks so very much, karaokegal *g*)
Possible spoilers for: House to S7, Sherlock including S2, all of Fortysomething
Thanks: to evila_elf for repeated previewing.
Notes: My first multifandom vid. I actually started this before news of House's cancellation broke, but in a way it seems a fitting tribute to two - really three, if you include the original canon - of my most influential fandoms, past, present and future. I love Sherlock for many of the same reasons I love House, so the father and son connection was irresistible. And in some sheltered corner of my brain, entirely divorced from reality, I almost... kind of... believe it *g*
