i mean usually men who are in a platonic friendship with another man are really happy for their friend when they get married and don’t longingly stare at their chairs or obsessively fold napkins or y’know, leave the wedding early and start doing drugs

like, I think we often assume that at this time Sherlock kind of took John for granted, expected him to always be there, which to be fair it does often seem like

luckypurplerose:

I love the comparison the show goes out of it’s way to make about Sherlock and learning names.

With Lestrade he’s told multiple times that his first name is Greg but constantly forgets it. Whether it’s because he deems it unimportant or because he’s a little shit who…

So just out of curiosity, why do you think Johnlock will become cannon? From what I've seen it looks like the cast and writers are pretty adamant on that subject. Btw I love your blog! It's so helpful and informative to people :)

wsswatson:

Thank you!

The writers have lied about a LOT of things (they claimed they would never explore Sherlock’s drug habit, that they’d never look into his childhood and that Moriarty was definitely dead, to name three of the biggest pre-series 3 lies). Then there is the fact that Mark Gatiss once said ‘I think it often kills things to talk about them too soon’, plus all of these quotes from Moffat:

Anything is possible. But we do our best to surprise you with a combination of lies and deceit. So, we’re never going to tell you what we’re going to do.’ [x]

Because I’ve always given this grand commitment to telling the truth! You don’t know what’s going on there. You don’t know what’s going on there. We know what’s going on there but we’re not telling you…for bloody ages!’ [x]

'It changes the experience of writing if I give too much away. 

Right now, I’ve got an idea for the ending which I’m extremely excited about, but I don’t wanna say it out loud. 

Not because it would matter if anyone knew about it, but just because saying it out loud might spoil the magic—you might look disappointed. 

So I need to cling to this idea—in fact, that’s a relevant thing to say about writing. 

Before, I’ve told people things and they seem underwhelmed, so I’ve lost faith in it from that point on! 

The most truthful thing I have said in this interview, about writing, is the importance of these secrets: The magic of Not Telling Anyone Yet.’ [x]

'They will be full of tremendous surprises. But they wouldn’t be surprises if I accidentally said them now, would they?' [x]

'Don’t tell them anything, or if you do, lie!' (at the series 3 premiere, on what to do if people asked for spoilers)

There’s just so much subtext (it’s beyond subtext now), and the series utilises a lot of queer coding and tropes and conventions of the romance genre, which seems a strange thing to continue for so long (and use increasingly more) if they weren’t planning to take it any further (particularly considering that they could easily have used John’s marriage to put an end to it).

Mark Gatiss has also spoken about how fond he is of The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes and how he was influenced by it (more on this interview here), and how he reads him as in love with Watson, and in fact, the writer, Billy Wilder, said that he wished he had had the courage and ability to write him as explicitly gay. There’s certainly evidence to suggest that BBC Sherlock is gay, and that John is bi.

In that first interview, he also spoke about wanting to see ‘a big detective show where the first half hour was this man at work and he’s a maverick and all the usual things and then he went home and his boyfriend says “Are you alright?”’ There’s also the fact that the commissioner, Ben Stephenson, is gay and has spoken about desperately wanting to commission more queer dramas, and the BBC’s 2009 LGB research commission delves into this in more depth.

I also think that, from a narrative perspective, we can expect Mary and the baby to go in series 4 (and I think that she will take the role of antagonist in some way, shape or form, even if she ultimately chooses to protect John).

I also spoke about why I don’t think it would compromise their relationship here, why I don’t think it would compromise the integrity of the programme here, & why I don’t think viewership figures would be an issue here (see also section 2 here).

Here is an excellent masterpost of Johnlock meta, if you’re interested, and here and here are others.
