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,…
Yes! I think their slightly dull insistence coupled with the totally detrimental message of the show itself points towards it being tactics that serve more than one purpose. It keeps people invested. Tension-wise, viewings often go down the drain once the main couple is canon. And it will produce an allmighty blast when they follow through and the importance of the show will be magnified. Plus, they are re-inventing Sherlock Holmes; remember how ACD had to give in to the demands of fans to resurrect Holmes? Might not the modern authors be mirroring his aloof outlook - just look at how incredibly invested all these kind of crazy people are in these characters we created, why oh why do they annoy us by insisting on their silly interpretation. Only to ‘have’ to, finally, give in to the modern day fans?
