No conclusive analysis as to why Sherlolly is plausible?
I’ll give you some, sonny boy.
Molly is canonically in love with Sherlock Holmes. Rupert Graves himself said that Molly only has eyes for Sherlock. He even said that Molly/Greg is impossible for that reason. Benedict Cumberbatch never said anything of that sort about Sherlolly. But of course, since omg, Sherlollians aren’t as wonderfully eloquent as you are, you can ignore those, right?
That’s one for the Molly part.
As for Sherlock?
“The one person he thought didn’t matter at all to me, was the one person who mattered the most.”
You can analyze the shitstorm out of any eye contact or delusional subtext you can find for your ship, but you will never be able to deny the gravity of that statement. And you can’t give me that “it’s just platonic” excuse, because it’s been proven and insisted by cast and crew time and again that John and Sherlock are PLATONIC, but you choose to ignore that. Molly is ridiculously important to Sherlock, he adores and loves her (Moffat said so himself), and whether or not he meant it in a platonic or romantic manner, it gives us a really solid foundation for why we think Sherlolly could happen.
We could spend days debating about how Molly could see Sherlock in a way not even John can, about how the cast and crew actually see Molly as Sherlock’s rock/saving grace, about how he trusts her with things he doesn’t even trust John with, about how he turns to her every time his back is to the corner and triumphs in his darkest hour because of her or her influence on him, about how John couldn’t even make him apologize to MRS. HUDSON with stern words but Molly made him apologize to a STRANGER with just a look, about how you have the privilege assume that the only reason Lestrade asked Molly if Tom and she were serious is that he was jealous but apparently the two REAL cheek kisses Sherlock gave Molly when he didn’t really to kiss her doesn’t mean anything, about how Molly’s become SO SIGNIFICANT that even without having “book canon” status her character is included in teasers and trailers and becomes more and more prominent by the season, about how she is KEY (Mark Gatiss’ words, not mine), about how Sherlock can’t really do with her (Amanda Abbington’s words, not mine), about how Sherlock and Molly’s relationship is beautiful (Benedict Cumberbatch’s words, not mine). About how NONE of them have directly turned down the possibility of Sherlolly, but:
Rupert Graves has done so with Lestrolly,
Moffat, Gatiss (and his husband), Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Amanda Abbington have ALL done so (and with increasing frustration and barely concealed annoyance) with johnlock.
But of course, since we’re apparently not as eloquent as you are, these things cannot be taken into account as “proof” for the plausibility of Sherlolly.
We can also debate about how Molly is canonically shown to be romantically interested in MEN, and how John is repeatedly shown as NOT GAY, and how BC and MF have repeatedly confirmed that neither John nor Sherlock is gay. But whoops, forgive me, I’m not a maestro with words and as such, those “justifications” for my ship just float into nothingness.
We can also discuss how one of the writers is gay and the lead actor is shown to have no homophobia whatsoever, but they still don’t like the idea of johnlock and we have to wonder whether it is due to homophobia, as many shippers seem to argue, or whether it’s because it’s just not the way they see the characters and the show.
We can also debate on how Moffat himself said that Molly can put Sherlock on the back foot, in a way NO ONE, NOT EVEN JOHN could. So the argument that Molly is too weak to handle Sherlock? Gee, I’m so sorry because my inadequate command of the English language is hindering me from defending the Sherlolly ship.
There’s also the issue of Molly deserving better than Sherlock… but apparently John doesn’t deserve better. Even though John isn’t in love with Sherlock but Molly is. So in short, John and Molly, the two kindest, strongest souls in the show, deserve to NOT GET WHAT THEY WANT. Damn it, my communication skills are too damn bad for me to explain how twisted that logic is!
I can also launch a discussion of how Sherlock Holmes saves EVERYONE (given maybe that it’s an interesting case), so saving John/Irene/anyone else isn’t really a measure of how in love he is with those people. But nope, I suppose I’m running out of nice, big English words to use. Forgive me.
I am perfectly aware that the writers have uttered words that are misleading in the past, but I could also argue that everyone chooses to hear only those that they want to, and saying “oh but we shouldn’t believe Mofftiss!” for saying that johnlock is not going to happen but then turning right around and saying we should believe Gatiss for saying the Molly is wallpaper is a bit fishy, don’t you think? But then again, I must only be muttering monkey noises to people, considering this explanation may not be as impressive as non-Sherlolly shippers’ meta.
There’s also so much meta for Sherlolly, but then again I’m pretty sure some people haven’t bothered to look, and then they claim that there are no properly written, extensive analysis on them. Gosh, sorry, that’s totally our fault. The thing is, we don’t tag our Sherlolly meta in the johnlock/lestrolly tag, which is maybe why you don’t see it. You may not be familiar with that concept, seeing that you tagged your lestrolly defense as “Sherlolly”.
I beg your pardon, once again, for the sheer lack of ability on my part to show “proof” for Sherlolly. Really, I should go back to school and work on my written communication skills.
thank you all for the sweet comments on the first two parts! i didn’t know if i was going to write more of this or not, but i got super inspired and couldn’t help myself. unfortunately, this is not the reason why claire leaves, but it is the first time they meet each other.

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is a long way from what Elizabeth Gillies was doing a few years ago. The 21-year-old actress grew up on Nickelodeon, appearing on shows like Victorious and iCarly. Now she’s facing off with a drug-addled, rock star-coiffed Denis Leary on an FX series that is both hilarious and remarkably uncouth (the show premieres Thursday night). Gillies plays Gigi, the long-lost daughter of Leary’s washed-up rocker who hopes to follow in his musical footsteps. The actress sings, swears, and generally fulfills a lot of rock ‘n’ roll fantasies, which it turns out she’s been harboring herself. We spoke to Gillies about working with Leary, '70s rock, and her bikini-clad role in the upcoming Vacation movie.
When introducing her bestie and tablemate Fey, “Parks and Recreation’s” Poehler took note of the number of women in the room and called the event the “open casting call” for the all-female “Ghostbusters 3” reboot. The wise-cracking Golden Globes co-host then got sincere about her “SNL” compatriot.
“Tina is so Hollywood that she doesn’t even live here. She lives in New York City,” she said. “She can do so many things well … she knows how to light up a room. Literally. She’s also a gaffer …
”It’s harder to be funny than be serious,“ Poehler emphasized.
She shared that Fey, who’s "the real deal” and “a real person in the real world,” had gifted her a portrait of her sons Archie and Abel made out of Legos as a wrap gift for completing “The Nest” over the summer.
“I cried because I knew that my gift to Tina was a heart-shaped pillow with the word ‘butts’ on it,” she said.
“You’re unapologetically the boss. You’re always the funniest person in the room,” she added, speaking directly to Fey. Poehler also noted that it was no coincidence that their buddy comedy would be hitting theaters the same weekend as the next episode of “Star Wars.”
“Tina is the only one who can beat 'Star Wars,’ you guys!” she exclaimed. “She’s my Han Solo and I’m her Chewbacca, because she’s the only one who can understand me sometimes, and I will destroy anyone who tries to hurt her.”
Fey, 44, whose introductory video montage earned her applause for saying that she does everything men do but she does it in heels, thanked Poehler and “SNL” alum Rachel Dratch and teased the audience about their dirty, unpublished “SNL” moms text chain. (She joked that she’d publish it when she turned 50.)
The actress-writer-director said that when she started at “SNL” in 1996, she knew she was brought there to write for the women in the cast, to try to help get them onto the show.
“I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want points on [Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph’s] 'Bridesmaids’ even though it had nothing to do with me.”
She also shared her “deep sadness” over the loss of “SNL” alumna Jan Hooksearlier this month.
“Jan deserved a big movie career, a bigger one. Certainly a bigger one than … Rob Schneider,” she said, earning the room’s laughter before she recalled how glad she was to have cast Hooks on “30 Rock” in 2010 to play Jenna Maroney’s mother.
“I really hope when the stars of live-action shows (iCarly, Victorious, HTR…) get older and move on from Nickelodeon, they don’t get involved with things like drug/sex scandals. I’d be esp disappointed if Liz Gillies goes into porn. Oh, or anyone to be accused of hate-mongering.”
For all the real 30 Rock nerds out there, please watch this AMAZING interview with director Beth McCarthy-Miller.
She talks about how she came to direct 30 Rock and working with the cast of the show On a typical production week for 30 Rock; on directing the live episodes of 30 Rock; on directing the final episode of the show On her favorite episodes and the legacy of 30 Rock; on being nominated for multiple Emmy Awards.
