Anonymous said: i saw your top 5 slash ships thing and i noticed that you didn't like bbc sherlock's sherlock/john. i don't mean to be rude or trying to start an argument but why don't you like them together?
i don’t hate johnlock or anything like that, but i find bbc sherlock to be sort of unpleasant while the victorian holmes stories are far more “romantic” and appealing to me in general.
i was really into bbc sherlock fandom for a couple of months around season 2, but after reading one too many fanfics that i found genuinely offensive, i decided not to bother any more. now i’ll only bother reading something if it’s by wordstrings.
no hard feelings to people who do enjoy bbc sherlock fic though. i think part of the reason why i now have very little interest in it is because my job requires me to write A LOT of very analytical articles about bbc sherlock and its fandom when a new season comes out, so i can’t really appreciate it in a superficial/fun way.
