Here's The 'Frozen'/'Sherlock' Fan Art You Didn't Know You Wanted

Everything you need to know about the Frozenlock meme.

Frozenlock is a thing. Well, okay, as with most things on Tumblr, Frozenlock -- fan-made mash-ups of Disney's hit animated movie "Frozen" and BBC's "Sherlock" -- is mostly a thing on Tumblr. But it's real, it's happening, and it's spectacu-lock.

The basic idea is to take "Sherlock" characters and cast them in the roles of characters from "Frozen," rather than vice-versa. It also seems to have started with user sash-kash, and then spread around Tumblr from there; eventually taking on a life of its own.

Sometimes it's called Frozen!lock, sometimes just Frozenlock. But however you tag it, here's what you need to know to get meme-ing right away:

Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) is usually Anna (Kristen Bell)

Mycroft Holmes (Mark Gatiss) is Elsa (Idina Menzel)

John Watson (Martin Freeman) is Kristoff (Jonathan Groff)

And in one spectacular case, Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) takes the part of Olaf the Snowman (Josh Gad).

That said, there are no hard and fast rules, as this is a newly developing meme. Want to draw Sherlock as Elsa? Go right ahead.

Everyone agrees that Sherlock and Mycroft's relationship is just like Anna and Elsa's in the song "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?"

They've even recorded a song in honor of the sub-meme called, "Do You Want To Play Deductions?"

But end of the day, it's all about Sherlock and Watson riding a reindeer.

So there you go! Everything you need to know about Frozenlock to get your own fan-blog started. The cosplay is only a few days away, we're sure. Now if Tumblr could only create a new meme called Downton Abbatman, we'd be happy campers.
