ContactSH and Johnlock
The main reason on why I am so excited about the twitter accounts @ContactSH and @ContactJHW… it is because if those accounts turn out to be BBC canon— then Johnlock is BBC canon.
I have been trying to be logical about anything that has been coming out so as to not get my hopes up. I have been VERY careful with anything coming out that could be potentially troll or malicious in any way— (thus I’ve been turned off the websites for different reasons)
The twitter accounts had never shown to be either malicious or troll, and they have been really entertaining so I had been rather happily following them on the side even while experiencing a LOT of angst regarding BBC and season 4.
However this has started to drift from the “well isn’t this a fun and well done fan account” and more into “omg this might actually be legit tin hat stuff going on here” lately.
I’m having a hard time not getting my hopes up over the twitter accounts. In addition to the accounts being a professional level (yes they are just that good) there has been at least three things out now -heavily- implying that they are BBC connected. At this point I am convinced that at the very -least- whoever runs them works for BBC. We have yet to see proof that it may not be another BBC Three situation where it is being run by a Johnlock fan who happens to also be a BBC employee… but with the time and expense put into this whole deal… I’m starting to wonder if it is leading to more.
As for the confirmed Johnlock in the twitter and for those who have not been keeping up: On the anniversary of when Sherlock and John met in BBC Canon, On twitter ContactSH and ContactJHW both got drunk to celebrate.
Well come to find the next morning that after a few drinks, they had apparently gotten to know each other better… in a biblical sense. The next day Sherlock complained about a hangover and then bragged a bit about their ‘activities’ the prior night, much to John’s chagrin.
There is more, and it proved to be both amusing and entertaining. A lot of tweets were deleted, and I think it was due to John ‘censoring’ Sherlock.
So moving on, a case happened, they traveled, and then comes valentine’s day where sherlock and John went out to a VERY nice restaurant– and then John drug Sherlock to a sex museum afterwards for kicks and giggles.
There is a LOT more of that whole episode.
Anyway, overall they have gone to some rather exotic locations (and no I’m not talking about the museum. They went out of the country) and have shared a lot of really interesting photos, all of which are original… also not talking about the museum, this is one of my fav:
There is a LOT more in those twitter feeds and I encourage anyone who wants to see what had been going on to check the twitter accounts out out because I left out a TON of stuff that happened in the feeds.
The accounts have been of really decent quality, and now with the links towards BBC I am gaining hope. One of two things are happening. Either this is a very highly paid employee of BBC, or something more is going on here and the twitter accounts are sanctioned.
Considering that Johnlock is canon in the twitter accounts (rather blatently so), that means that they are canon with BBC if it turns out that this is a part of a larger promotion thing.
And that… That would be absolutely wonderful.
So that is why I am a freaking out and pleased as punch about this whole deal. I have been treating every ‘ARG’ thing so far with a heavy dose of skepticism because I didn’t want to be taken for a ride- but so far nothing has happened with the twitters (in contrast to the websites) to raise suspicions of their being anything other then either VERY well done fan run sites or BBC related. Both of which are just grand.
I’m getting very hopeful for the later.
