To me John Watson and Sherlock Holmes has always been about friendship; a friendship that has grown into a strong and not often seen friendship.
I get that many people think of them as more (as Johnlock), and that is totally their right to ship them that way! It really is! I can totally see why people would ship them. But for me I choose to just “ship” them as an amazing friendship. One that has gone through so much, so very much, but has endured through it all.
I don’t know I guess I had to write my feelings out because I’ve been reading other people’s posts, how they’re super disappointed with the episodes and will only take certain parts of it. But that saddens me because there’s so much to retain from these episodes. I guess I’m not of the same mind as most fans; maybe I’m not as invested as others. I guess I will enjoy the show and choose to see it how I do (because we all have individual imaginations, we all view it differently).
I mean in the end they are still simply fantastic stories that captivate us, and bring us along on a legendary adventure. And I’m pretty sure we can all agree on that :)
