“Don’t look at them, John.”

“Why?”

“Because… they’re Holmes.

-SEQUEL-

Base on my 100% imagination:

Sherlock and John met each other for the first time at Hogwarts.
Mycroft is a Slytherin prefect. Harry is a Gryffindor student.
Sherlock and John have’nt been sorted yet.

Hope you enjoy this one!

I don’t think some people understand what queer baiting is...

I see a lot of non-johnlockers (and some johnlockers) screaming about how “moftiss have said for years they weren’t writing johnlock!!! you weren’t baited!!!” and I’m just like…thats not how it works….It actually upsets me to see queer people echoing this sentiment too (fyi I’m gay). Ship whatever the fuck you want but if you’re denying the queerbaiting I’m side-eyeing the hell out of you. Queerbaiting isn’t about what the writers said about their intentions for the text. It’s about what actually happens in the text.

What happens is multiple occasions of people assuming John and Sherlock are romantically involved, what happens is John and Sherlock being put in scenes and situations that (if one of them were a woman instead) would be considered to be loaded with romantic/sexual tension, what happens is John sharing almost word for word the same lines with Molly who is clearly portrayed as being unrequitedly in love with Sherlock. I could go on and on about what actually happens in the text and the thing is, regardless of what you ship, there is no denying that there is a homoromantic subtext portrayed throughout the entire show. Many fans quit the series early on due to comments made by moftiss that then seemed to indicate to them that they were being queerbaited. Others chose to believe that a writing team, one of whom was a proud gay man, couldn’t possibly be queerbaiting them and instead they were building to a culmination of the relationship being textually canonised (finally!).

If you want to continue to throw out the argument that “they’ve denied it for years you’ve not been baited” then I would ask you to consider Mark’s comment: “I find flirting with the homoeroticism in Sherlock much more interesting”. If you’re so hung up on the idea of what the writers have actually said then that quote right there is confirmation that they were queerbaiting the whole time. Intentionally putting homoerotic/homoromantic tension into your show only to end up not delivering on it is queerbaiting. Like thats literally it. Mark has admitted it with that quote regardless of whether he is even actively aware thats what he was doing. I’d go as far to suggest that he didn’t even understand how serious the issue of queerbaiting is taken now given his age and experience with queer media in the past, possibly even felt he was being progressive. That doesn’t change the fact that it was queerbaiting. It doesn’t change the fact that queer fans were baited with the possibility of a romantic relationship between Sherlock and John and were instead delivered the biggest het fest in the entire show run.

tl;dr the argument that because moftiss said johnlock wasn’t becoming canon somehow means queerbaiting didn’t happen is ridiculous because of what textually did happen on screen.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: John Watson is bisexual and it desperately needs to be canonized. It's not even speculative; ignoring the fact BBC Sherlock has gone to great lengths to demonstrate his dedication, adoration and - yes- love, in regards to Sherlock, ignoring the fact they went as far as to introduce John's ex - Sholto -, there is no denying the queer subtext of the ACD canon. Holmes and Watson were in a romantic relationship in the source material, eventually retiring together. Sherlock is demonstrated as having absolutely 0 interest in women while John is interested in women, though it seems to be in equal in measure to his interest in men. Obviously, in 1887, it was impossible to canonize a queer relationship without fear of retribution but, thankfully, that isn't something Moftiss have to worry about. Given the writing, the acting choices made by Ben C and Martin Freeman, everything about the show down to costumes and lighting and how it's shot, we know that BBC Sherlock's own John Watson is a bisexual man and it needs to be said in so many words.
A Letter to the Sherlock Fandom

You may think that this is a lot of text and too long to read but I implore you to try so that you can better understand these points of view.

I apologise if this isn’t as eloquent or measured as I intended it to be but I am honestly so angry at the Sherlock fandom right now. Not all, obviously, many are conducting themselves amazingly no matter their opinion on the episode. However, there are a large (and loud) number who are not and not only are these people making the rest of us look bad and acting as if they speak for the fandom as a whole, I fear that they are doing (and may have already succeeded in doing) irreparable damage to what could have been a great community.

There are several points I wish to address in this post so I will try to dissect each one individually to the best of the ability.

Harassment

No matter what you thought of the episode it is NOT okay, or even productive, to harass members of the cast or crew in any way (whether it be through social media, through official complaints (which can actually have further effects on their professional lives also which are definitely not yours to mess with) etc.). It started with Amanda back when season 3 was announced and that was just downright cruel and now it seems the lesson has not been learnt. They have worked hard on this show and even if it did not turn out as you personally expected it or wanted it to you cannot hate them for having a different view of where things should go than you. I have seen many people on Tumblr saying things along the line of ‘it our show anyway we can do what we want and it can be what we want it to be’. No. It is their show, we merely enjoy it - they created it and they have final say on what happens. I for one would not wish to see a world where the fans get to decide what happens as that would only ever cause further divide in communities and result in one section of a fandom having superiority over the others which is already happening in the Sherlock fandom with some Johnlockers/TJLCers.This harassment also extends to the harassment of other member of the fandom - labelling someone as homophobic because they don’t ship a same-sex ship is not only detrimental to the LGBT+ cause it puts up further barriers for the normalisation of non-traditional relationships.

On a similar topic, complaining to the BBC because you didn’t like the episode is not only petty but also counterproductive - these people are not asking for change in doing so they are calling for an end to the show and a witch-hunt in which those who created it are to be mocked in a public sphere. I have seen many people proudly posting images of their complaints and encouraging others to do the same and even petitions to a similar effect and it saddens me that people have become so arrogant in believing that the show is theirs and they were owed more that they would stoop to such levels. You were not owed anything. You didn’t like it, deal with it, move on.

Queerbaiting

I cannot express how much I dislike this term. Sometimes, yes, the teasing of fans with a potentially queer couple is done in an interpretably malicious way. With Sherlock, this is not the case. The cast and crew have said from the start that Johnlock (the main ship brought up in such discussions) was not going to happen. If you missed that and were not aware - fine; but if you knew this and then continued to be upset that it wasn’t happening - that is on you.  It is not queerbaiting if there was never any potential for the relationship in the first place - especially when neither character has been canonically stated to be queer.

Fetishisation of Gay Relationships and the Anti-Straight Trend in the Progressive Community

Wow, that was a long title. I have seen many of the aforementioned complaints to the BBC, petitions and Tumblr posts claiming that by not making a ship such as Johnlock canon they have let down a large portion of the community who are LGBT+ and have not given them the representation they deserve. Whilst representation is good and everyone does deserve to be able to see someone like them on television, as I said before, we have known from the stat that this was not going to happen with these characters. If you didn’t understand that clear message - again, it is on you, not the creators who have always been honest about the future of such a ship. You can be upset that they did not become canon in the same way that you would for any other ship but you cannot claim that you have been robbed of representation, misled in any way or owed better because you were never promised it in the first place.

As for the title of this section, I have seen a common trend in fandom communities towards making canonically straight characters gay, which whilst harmless if not taken to the extreme (as I feel some members of the Johnlock community have) actually highlights a double standard and serious problem that must be addressed. If one were to take a canonically gay character, strip them of their identity and make them straight they would be called homophobic in an instant. However, when it is the other way around, no one complains. Heterosexual is an identity too and to keep classifying it as separate from the others, in a class of its own, is only going to slow down progress and make it harder for true unity to occur. By stating that two characters, one of whom has categorically stated that they are not gay (and of course only one would be enough) have to be gay because of they way they interact (via your personal interpretation - often though tinted lenses) you are not only arguing that two men cannot be simply very good friends without harbouring romantic feelings for each other, you are also denying John of his own self-proclaimed identity.

The Bad Side of TJLC

(The previous paragraph is also relevant to this section and thus again I must state that whilst shipping two characters is fine, outright ignoring their identity and labelling them yourself is not.)

On paper, TJLC (The JohnLock Conspiracy) is not too harmful, you can speculate as much as you want. Where it becomes harmful is where people delve into the realm of delusion. There are many TJLCers who wholeheartedly believe that Johnlock is already canon or has to be canon and it is these people who appear to harbour the strongest negative beliefs about the recent episode and who are doing the most damage to this community.

I have seen countless posts recently along the lines of the following: 'clearly we know more than Moftiss’, 'how could they not see it was so obvious’, etc. Such arrogance as to your own beliefs is extremely harmful to the wider community. You do not know more than the creators of the show, the show is as they intended it to be - anything that you find within the show (with your TJLC-tinted glasses) that supports your predetermined theory is simply you putting two and two together and making five. It was not intended and therefore not symbolic of your beliefs and so your interpretation is no more than that - an interpretation not fact.

Believe it or not, for those of us not in the TJLC community, JohnLock was not obvious - for someone like me, when I first heard of this ship and TJLC I was incredibly surprised because I saw no romantic connection whatsoever - just two friends; and that was all that they were intended by the creators to be. If you were aware of the cast and crews comment of the subject and still deluded yourself into believing that TJLC was true - that was on you. No one else is to blame for your beliefs not lining up with the facts of the show.

Your ship does not rule this fandom and you do not speak for the whole fandom so those of you saying they didn’t give the fandom what they wanted - you are wrong. They didn’t give you what you wanted. You don’t speak for me and you don’t speak for the countless others like me who actually enjoyed the episode and/or are not in any way JohnLock shippers.

Sherlock Holmes and the Delusion of the Fake Episode

For those of you who still believe in some way that the episode was a fake one, that a  new episode will come out and say that it was all a dream etc. Again, you are deluding yourself and this is not healthy and will only lead to disappointment. It is what it is. Failure to accept reality for what it is and move on from there, living in a constant state of denial is a serious problem.

I have so much more to say and honestly not the words to say it without going off onto too much of a tangent right now. I may add continuations (in fact I most likely will once I can formulate sentences again) to this if I think of anything.

I know that one post on Tumblr isn’t going to make a whole lot of difference and the fractures in this community may never heal but I honestly could not hold this in any longer.

You are welcome to ask questions or for clarification on any point made or any point you wish me to address.

reading fanfiction

what the intelligent rational side of me thinks:

what the sublime naughty side of me thinks:

  • me: I'm gonna read this 200k fanfic today..
  • brain: you are writing three tests tomorrow..
  • me: and?
  • brain: you should study!!
  • me: and?
  • brain: you don't want to fail them?
  • me:
  • brain:
  • me: fanfiction it is then
  • brain: *screams*

These are the words that may never enter the books.
All the times that I have stopped myself from writing “I love you” in the records of our exploits.
The drafts that must be hidden for fear of falling into the wrong hands.
If only you’ve a clue as to how many times I have rewritten those books that you detest so. How often I had to stop! When is it considered inappropriate to constantly remind the readers of how dear you are to me?

Every draft in which I have gone too far, I save in my room. Have you read them, I wonder? Do you understand the depths of which I love you, Sherlock?

When will we be freed from this hell? When will we live in a world where I can remind you each and every day we are together that you are everything to me?

There must be a world parallel to ours, where we are able to love each other without fear of punishment.

In another life, in another time, you and I are free.
