Johnlock

I started watching Sherlock on Netflix a couple of weeks ago, and now I've watched the whole thing. I went into it knowing that there were a lot of "Johnlock" shippers, but that actually didn't have too much to do with why I was watching it. At the end of the first season, I didn't quite see where the shippers were coming from, mostly because the thought of Sherlock in a romantic relationship was kind of incomprehensible to me. Partway through second season, though, all the couple-y references got to be a bit much and by the end of third season I was on board.

Everything I know about this show I've learned in the past two weeks, and everything I know about the fandom I've learned in the past few days. Apparently there's this thing called The Johnlock Conspiracy, which is the theory that the show intends for Sherlock and John to end up together. As much as I would love, love, love to believe this, I used to be convinced back in the day that J. K. Rowling was going to have Sirius and Remus be together (or at least left ambiguous), only to get smacked in the face with Remus/Tonks (which, I think even its shippers have to admit, came out of nowhere). Also, as the mother of a baby, the idea of Sherlock as some little girl's stepfather is kind of scary.

If The Johnlock Conspiracy isn't real, the show's writers are really being jerks by dangling the possibility in our faces.

I doubt the writers will make Johnlock explicitly canon, because they don't want to "rewrite the stories" completely or whatever, and it'll look like fanservice if they suddenly outed them for no reason but didn't have them in from the start. But I think they'll continue with the implicit-shipping and references, and definitely not sink the ship, cause 90% of the fanbase would quit.

Also, happy birthday to your kid! =D

I don't know if they'll make Johnlock canon, but if they did, I don't think it'll look like pure fanservice. If they wrote it right, I think it could come across like a natural development of Sherlock and John's relationship. Of course, John and Mary would have to break up (or she'd have to die) and there's the question of the baby...

Thanks. :)
