one of the biggest things that makes zero sense to me throughout this entire thing is that, we know they deliberately queer coded these characters. like it’s undeniable, the entire fucking text supports that. they based their sherlock off of TPLoSH where holmes is gay and in love with john. mark says it’s desperately unspoken, and that billy wilder regretted not fully going through with it. so, we know that he’s gay. and yet, if it was never their intention to make that explicit, then WHY did they always so aggressively deny that sherlock was gay any time they were asked about it? why not just say ‘we can see why people would think that, and it’s open to interpretation’ or something like that? what is the point in deliberately queer coding your characters, to the point of one of them on all fours wiping semen-like fluid off his lips as he transitions into the other man’s mouth, if you’re just going to shout at fans who pick up on that? shout down and belittle the queer audience who say, ‘I see this, I understand what you’re doing with this character’ like ???? that is what makes NO sense to me, whatsoever. what the fuck was the point of all of this
Is it possible that season four is all in John's mind. Is that what we needed before we could get Johnlock, for John to deal with his issues. After all Sherlock dealt with his in TAB, so is it at all possible that this is John's narrative?
