Is It Platonic Now?
So, after reading so much johnlock meta, I decided to give my own contribution to the fandom.
In many cases I heard/read people saying that it is a gay fetishizem and that people who ship johnlock only love it because they think gay relationships are sexy and whatnot.
Well I’m here to prove all those bullshitters that it’s not true. I’m here to prove that this ship sails itself, fuled by the writers of the show, and it is not just the vivid imagination of the fans.
What I did (and about to do for the rest of the episodes) is to take “johnlock scenes” that according to the writes are completely platonic, and replace either John or Sherlock with a female version of them. I didn’t change anything but that - the text and environment are exactly as they are in the canon.
This is ment to show that if this show was about a man/woman relationship it was okay for us to ship them because it was soooo obvious that they will end up together. But since its a man/man relationship it is more hard for people to see the obvious, and easier to judge the ones who are not as blind.
