How to Ship Johnlock without Really Trying
I. The Soundtrack Does It
Listen to this audio clip. The notes you hear are the motifs for “John Watson’s Theme” (first) and for “SHERlocked” (second.) “SHERlocked” is the music that plays during the scene in the Battersea station between Irene and John and continues playing while Sherlock is walking down Baker street as he opens his eyes.
The very musical themes that stand in for John and Irene, that color their characters on screen and jerk our emotions are quite connected but different- just like their relationship to a certain consulting detective. (I dare you to listen to John’s theme and not feel a pang!)
II. The Editing Does It
Here’s yet another example of why the editing of Sherlock is so damn good. Irene enigmatically says to John, “I don’t think so, do you?” and the camera jump cuts from Irene to a very still John. Then there is a slow fade out over John’s face to total black— as if we’re looking at him and closing our eyes on his unmoving, and fraught face. The next edit is a jump cut to Sherlock opening his eyes as the music titled “Sherlocked” swells. These three are so intertwined— by shot selection, editing, music— that beautiful music that wells up in them all, in us. Irene is outspoken about her sexuality and desire and she’s outspoken about John’s. He does not contradict her when she says “Look at us both.” In fact, she has seen right through John. He’s not gay— on the whole. But he is Sherlocked. Irene knows what John likes. They are a little jealous of each other. Sherlock intentionally lets them know he’s there.
The scene has opened Sherlock’s eyes. Not because he didn’t know Irene’s true feelings, not because he is in love with Irene, not because he is touched that she is still alive- remember John says that the moodiness Sherlock is enacting is what he normally does anyway- doesn’t eat, plays sad music, etc. Sherlock has no sentiment towards her. She intrigues him and at this point is winning the game. Irene was easy to see though emotionally— well Sherlock proves her attachment by cooly taking her pulse. No— the eye-opening moment for Sherlock is that he begins to see John’s attachment— not that he understands it. In Hounds he says he has no friends but smartly reconsiders when he sees he has wounded John (as he had Molly before). In Reichenbach, Sherlock can’t understand why John would be upset at disparaging things people say about him. But I happen to think that by the time he makes his final call to John from the roof, he does care.
This short little edit, this blink-and-miss-it moment is the exact point in time that the CAMERA ships Johnlock— not in the sense of them having actual sex in canon— but in the sense that their bond is real, mysterious and eye-opening. Strong enough to last their whole lives.
MJW (Midonz) So I have to ask because there’s a huge amount of people in the fandom who think that Sherlock and John should be romantically involved.
Michael Price: (Laughs)
MJW: That’s probably no secret to any of you. So what does it mean that Irene’s and John’s, well all of the themes really, that they have a similar contour…
MJW: Obviously with Irene it’s a very romantic song but it harkens to John and Moriarty as well. So…
MP: I think it’s sort of… If I’m honest we tend to not strain to the gender politics of it too much.
MP: Whatever that may be. And we sort of… the relationship that we play musically, fortunately we can be, I think, incredibly emotional without being specific because that’s the joy of music. And so we’re one of the departments that can happily hold our heads up and just go, “Yeah, no. We’re just playing what we’re seeing.”
MJW: (Laughing) Make of it what you will.

<goes about making of that what she will>
Apparently, a new wave of people are indignant about the “Mary Hate” and misogyny again.
See this. Mary did this.
(Not Amanda Abbington…ok? I’m not an idiot)
But… Mary did this.
I believe Sherlock has a plan in mind, a goal, a reason to claim “surgery” and to spin a tale about a phone call that may never have occurred… (keep your friends close and your enemies closer).
John is, as he says, doing things Sherlock’s way.
Don’t tell me it was her only option.
Don’t make excuses for the poor, pregnant woman (*that’s* misogynistic).
Look at this picture again and tell me how nice she is, how sweet, how kind, how perfect for John. Tell me about your OT3.
I love this man. I am Mummy Holmes. Except… I do know who shot my boy. I have every right to be monstrous.
Where have you been all my life
A++++++++++ to this post
This is perfect. Count me amongst the monstrous. Nobody hurts my boy and gets away with it.
let’s not forget mary was willing to shoot sherlock again if given a chance (“how good a shot are you?” “how badly do you want to find out?”). there’s literally no excuse for her actions. accept it.
#holy shit yes
Forever amused that no one gives a flying fuck about Moriarty’s return/if he’s alive/how he survived because we’re all too busy talking about Mary.
So either this was the plan all along or TPTB honestly thought everyone would feel satisfied with Mary’s plotline and come away from series 3 being amazed at Moriarty’s return.
I am 99.9% certain that they thought they’d neatly tied up Mary’s plot thread and were going to wow us and take us into a Moriarty-filled hiatus.
Back when I attempted to livestream, there were two people who patiently assisted me. The second requested Teenlock; Sherlock intimidating John. I doodled in Photoshop, which isn’t my forte, so I’ve redrawn their request in pencil. Yay!
can we meet the”married ones” that live next door and can they please be played by vidar magnussen and bjarte tjøstheim
How would you describe me, John?

A list of people worth following, it’s a honour to be among them :3
Gotta go follow them all <3
"H-honestly… I was expecting a… succubus…"
