Never Give Up
I’ve literally spent the past four days on Tumblr. Every waking moment. Just scrolling for hours, reading tin hat theory after tin hat theory. I’m trying not to get my hopes up for anything, but yall are making it so damn hard. I just want us to be a happy Fandom! We’re brilliant detectives who deserve so much credit. Whether we’re right or wrong about the fourth episode or Moriarty taking over inauguration day (Please let this happen! It’ll make that day so much less shitty for us Americans who aren’t sucked in by Trump’s bullshit) just know that we should be proud. You guys have spent hours after hours working on meta, creating brilliant fanfiction and fanart and just generally being there for one another. This Fandom and the Supernatural Fandom are my two favorites to be apart of. Because we’re family. I don’t really talk to anyone, I’d love too though but I haven’t made any Fandom friends. However I still feel quite connected to all of you. I’ve read your metas, I’ve watched all of TJLC Explained, I’ve consumed so much fanfiction and I’ve been on this incredible adventure with you guys. It’s been a wild ride and right now it hurts and we’re scared and confused. But at least, after all of this, we still have each other and our fandom. We are what makes TJLC and Sherlock so special and important because we care. So we just need to keep caring and keep writing our fanfiction and meta and keep drawing such beautiful fanart. Because one day Johnlock will be canon. It might not be with Ben and Martin on BBC Sherlock, but it’ll happen. And when it does, we can finally say “I told you so” to all the doubters, antis, and trolls. Johnlock is real because it’s in all of us. We make it real. Thank you for letting me be apart of something so special. Never give up on something so important. We have each other and we have our imaginations. Let’s prove them wrong. Keep your tin hats on, my friends, because we’re the real deal… whether Moftiss realizes it or not.
