I’ve gotten a few worried/sad/nervous notes in my inbox regarding recent interviews with the show creators that include dismissive, derisive answers when asked about the possibility of a John/Sherlock relationship, so I just wanted to share my opinion in one go.
First: it absolutely,…
I had a thought the other day: does everyone involved with the show have a pact, to respond in the way they do? It does seem very similar to Steven Moffat’s incredulous little speech about Moriarty (“you think they fake suicided each other on that roof??”). I’m definitely not prepubescent, and I don’t want to watch anyone make out (regardless of gender), but I do think what they’re leading up to could be truly groundbreaking. Think of the wonderful stories we hear of friends and relatives changing their homophobic views because of two fictional characters; now think how influential it would be if (when) they bring the subtext to the forefront!
