Sherlock belongs to us now
Seriously, the writers essentially gave Sherlock William Scott Holmes to us.
Moffat and Gatiss completed their part in his story, and set up each happy ending that we could want. Now, it’s up to us all to make that happy ending into the story we all want to see. No one’s end wasn’t real. No lies were told. All I Love You’s and texts and caresses gave us all exactly what we wanted and they were all as real as we want them to be. Sherlock belongs to us now.
Steven and Mark are finished telling the story they wanted to tell. Now it’s our turn to continue that into whatever we wish. Don’t talk yourself out of your happiness. We all deserve our happy endings.
