Narnia!lock is Canon!
Not a drill. Sherlock knows all about the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe. I know because he’s got a scholarly book about the Narnia series on his shelf before John moves in. Go forth and multiply your kid!lock head canons. Please, somebody draw me a Sherlock|Narnia AU picture. Pleeeeze!
Now. What if YOU learned your book is on the 221b set?!
@naturalshocks pointed out that Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C. S. Lewis is on the shelf behind John’s chair. I told the author, Michael Ward, that his book visible in 221B and he was totes tickled and watched Hearse in great anticipation. He wasn’t disappointed. The book is still there in S3.
Now this fact creates a kind of timey wimey cross-stream problem because Sherlock Holmes is mentioned in a Narnia book, The Magician’s Nephew!
Here’s what Michael told me when I asked him why he thought the book was there:
I love ‘Sherlock’ and have a great admiration also for Martin Freeman as an actor. So this made my day!
I posted [that Planet Narnia is on the set of 221B] on Facebook and it’s attracted more likes, comments and shares than anything else I’ve ever posted …
With kind regards,
P.S. As to why Holmes has a copy of ‘Planet Narnia’ on his shelves, I suspect it’s to do with his apparent ignorance (actually wilful agnosticism or apathy, or so I understand) about whether the Earth goes round the Sun. It’s something mentioned in ‘A Study in Scarlet’. The BBC adaptation, ‘A Study in Pink’, refers to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R-YdkjRHo4
So yeah, Narnia!lock.
