Canonically queer bad guys:
James "Daddy's had enough now" Moriarty, Irene "Well, I am" Adler, and Eurus "Pity I never got to know her on a more intimate level" Holmes
Canonically queer nice guy:
Harry (Lonely, alcoholic) Watson
Then of course we have Sherlock and John, the pivotal characters of the show, the two most beautifully developed characters in the show, the two people around whose relationship this show revolves (isn't that what you said, Moftiss?):
No Homo Since 1800s™
To everyone who denies the homoerotic subtext of this show, doesn't this pattern of queer representation seem a bit off to you? Just curious, really.
This, adding to the hope for a season 5 - A hope that the creators won't ruin the characters we care about, that THEY care about, and will fix the misrepresentation of the relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson once and for all.
Head cannon! The reason Sherlock leaves Molly out of the scary things in his life. Sherlock puts a wall up around his feelings when she is concerned, the only wall he has left. Eg: in his last vow when Sherlock is in his mind palace talking to Moriarty. The reason Moriarty doesn’t mention that Molly will be sad with all the others is that, if he admitted Molly would be sad, that would be admitting that he cares…. which (at least at this point) he can never do….
YOU THINK I WAS JOKING ABOUT MORIARTY BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL BY HACKING THE BBC TOMORROW TO TELL US ALL ABOUT MORE SHERLOCK FOOTAGE??? YOU THINK THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE BECAUSE IT’S TOO CRAZY?? IT’S NOT. IT’S HAPPENING ON THE BBC ALREADY.
THIS IS THE SITE TODAY
AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SHARE THE NEWS ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
THIS IS ALREADY HAPPENING. I FUCKING TOLD YOU. I FUCKING TOLD YOU. FUCK.
*climbs out of a trash bin with a tinfoil deerstalker askew atop my head* okay but listen how did Moriarty know to tell Eurus that Molly was in love with Sherlock when the entire Reichenbach Fall stunt explicitly relied on Moriarty completely and utterly underestimating her role in Sherlock’s life
