(Disclaimer: This is going to be rather long. Sorry for the negativity)
I know I’m late to the party but I need to get this out.
I hate series four. Not just TFP, not just Mary’s redemption arc…I hate the whole thing. The last days I spent delving deep into old tags, fic and started to rewatch the show and I only got sad. So fucking sad. I remember joining fandom back in June, how it helped me crawl out of my shell and talk to people (sorry for not reaching out, I haven’t forgot about you lovelies). I remember spending nights reading meta, which brought me from reluctantly shipping Johnlock to a full blown TJLCer. I remember watching the show over and over, at first on my own, later surrounded by amazing people from all over the world at Steph’s watchalongs. I remember following the news at the sdcc, and screaming over ‘love conquers all’ and our first teaser trailer. I remember setlock and all the funny exchanges with Arwel. I remember Sherlocked and watching the GBBO finale just to see two new frames cut into the teaser. I remember being super excited about every new TJLCE video. I remember how I couldn’t listen to the radio because EVERYTHING was Johnlock and my heart beat faster. I remember “Tell them your darkest secret”-“I love you”. I remember all those countdowns.
