I have a lot of ships, period. I end up flailing a lot over people that don’t exist, sobbing at a computer screen, take short two second breaks from my computer when the feels get too much. Eh, normal fangirl things.
But the best part?
And no, I don’t mean Fed Ex and smuggling humans in boxes onto ships – as much as my friends might say otherwise.
And now, I will attempt to show you why Johnlock is possibly one of the most adorable ships ever, and also possibly because I’m dying for Season 4, annnnd why marathoning TV shows counts as exercise* John and Sherlock didn’t get much air time (Oh gosh. Nine episodes, don’t remind me u.u) BUT BUT BUT. There is hope, right? Johnlock needs to be a thing.
*What do you mean it ain’t exercise? Pfft, everyone knows I’m a healthy
obsessive introverted fangirl who believes internet is her oxygen.
And now, onto the reasons.
1. Sherlock in a Nutshell
Sherlock: “Hello, John. I appreciate the interest but I do hope you know that I consider myself married to my work”
Sherlock: “Would you care to join my work?”
i’m sORRY BUT THIS IS ENOUGH PROOF FOR ME ‘NUFF SAID.
2. Sherlock corrects everyone. Freaking everyone.
It drives him crazy not to. Details, facts, their numbers, cake. But I love it how he conveniently ignores this minor and completely insignificant fact in every way when people assume John and him are a couple. I mean, nope, nothing wrong about that ^_^
3. John killed someone. For a man he met? Yesterday.
I’m not sure if it a was one day ago, or two days, but taking a life? Killing someone is serious.
And John was willing to do this, because for a horrible moment he thought that Sherlock was going to die. He shot the cabbie for Sherlock. For Sherlock. To save Sherlock. And that shows that even for the short amount of time he had known him, he trusted him. Enough to take a life.
NOW HOW IS THAT NOT SHIP-WORTHY MY FRABJOUS FIENDS?
4. Just got one.
4. Counting the Texts
JUST LOOK AT WHAT I FOUND ON TUMBLR
But do you realize the sheer extent of John’s jealousy in ASiB? Irene started texting Sherlock on September 15, according to John’s blog. She stopped at Christmas. That’s just over 100 days worth of texting.
During that span of time, John counted every single one of the texts he heard her send. He kept that mental tally going for over three months. For no one’s benefit. And he wanted to know if Sherlock replied.
Also, consider that 57 texts over a span of 3 months amounts to around 0.56 texts per day, which actually isn’t all that much tbh.
And yet…”YOU’VE TEXTED HIM A LOT.”
John. Honey. Son. Sweetheart.
0.56 texts per day.
I can’t. I really can’t.
5. Nothing’s better than being loved by someone who hated everyone.
Not everyone everyone. But most people.
6. Heart eyes Sherlock.
C’mon, he’s being obvious here 😄
7. Gahh, I need this askdlf
I realize we’re no where near Season 4 and this just came up out of the blue, but I needed to share my excessive feeling with someone, anyone. Benedict’s son will be going to college by the time we get the next season. *wipes away lone tear*
I will still go down with this ship. SO MANY REASONS.
