so this is my first time watching Martin's Interview when the interviewer asks "..why do you think they love each other" (I mean, I saw it couple of times in gifs) but OHMYGOD I'm laughing so hard. He explained everything about 'ppl with the same sex being attracted to each other' etc for a few moment and then it mixed up with friendship and then I started losing it when he did the *TAKE A DEEP BREATH* "yeah.. I dont know..I dont know.." 😂 like, I just cant..
I love that interview, it’s just priceless. Like, you can see how he starts to freak out in the exact moment the interviewer asks him “
why do you think they love each other so much?”
then he starts to ramble about how two same sex people can be super best bros forever like
then we get to the best part –> Martin I AM JUST IN IT Freeman. His face at the end is just…
He just wants to run and hide from that question forever. Look at the poor thing.
Ok but imagine after s4, John’s heading out with Rosie, and he turns around and says ‘We’ll be back soon, love you!’ and Sherlock just freezes from where he’s standing. He finally opens his mouth and says, ‘John… I’m not Mary.’ And John just smile and says ‘I know’, turns around, and leaves.
So I just wanted to share a few things really important to me about why I love this show so much and the Johnlock/TJLC fanbase in particular, and why they are so important and close to me. I’ve mentioned it before but it was through this show that I learned more about myself, about my sexuality, I learned I wasn’t straight, I just learned more. This community is so amazingly brilliant and smart and we gathered what we were shown and from that we formed our conclusions. That doesn’t make us wrong. I still believe we are right. Moffat and Gatiss and the BBC and anyone out there doesn’t own Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Nobody owns them. They’re our boys. We have as much a say as anyone and as people who have been evaluating this so intensively for years, I think if anything, we have more of a say on what is the truth.
With that said, I don’t regret anything. I love Johnlock and all the joy it has brought to me and my friends. I love all the friends I have made because of this show. I have made some of my best friends because of this show. It’s a part of me. Now here’s where I get a little cheesy.
Before I had this blog, I had a previous blog that went by a number of different URLs over the years, but I would occasionally try to make posts there and contribute to fandom in the little ways I thought I could. One day I made this post there, and through the notes saw @williamsherlockscott-watson reblog it. Despite going to school together and going to classes together, I had no idea she (Amber) liked Sherlock or shipped Johnlock or believed in TJLC or any of that, and because I saw her in my notifications over a simple Johnlock post I made one day I was able to discover this and reach out to her about it. If it weren’t for Johnlock, I would have never reached out to Amber and gotten to know her and now I do. As cheesy and cliche as it sounds, really, Johnlock brought me to getting to know Amber and I’m so grateful for that because Amber is so amazing and lovely and I’m so fortunate to have her in my life and without Johnlock- who knows if we would have ever gotten to this point?
So I guess the point I’m trying to reach is I can’t resent Johnlock. It’s brought me so much happiness, and love, and friends, and much more. It means so incredibly much to me and to so many others and you know what - it’s ours. We have worked so hard for everything and all the conclusions we’ve come to. We did deserve more and better but we still own this. This is ours, they are our boys. Johnlock brings so many people happiness, and hope, and encouragement, and most importantly it brings people together. I am - and always will be - grateful for that.
So thank you to Johnlock and the TJLC base of this fandom specifically. Thank you for everything you’ve brought me. I am so incredibly grateful and I can never voice that enough. I love you all so so much. Thank you.
I recently hit 3.8k followers and honestly, I have no idea how I got that far and I’ve never done this sort of thing so I wanted to do that, now. Thank you to everyone who has followed me! I’m Devan, and if it weren’t obvious already, I really love Johnlock and all things related. Enjoy your stay!
keep in mind all the following blogs will essentially be Sherlock-related
All of these blogs are amazing and really worth a follow (if you haven’t already).
so i hit 300 a couple days ago (a milestone i thought would take me ages to get to, if ever-thank you all so much!!) and i thought this would be a great time to do an official follow forever with everyone who brought me here! ☺️🐝
