    Summary

    This is the first of a series of essays I wish to write on the Gender Politics of Sherlock fandom. There are many things I wanted to say at the official panel but was unable to, since it was derailed by a group of individuals who showed up with the intention of intimidating and harassing the panel moderator. In future essays, I’d like to share my thoughts on femslash, Mary Sues and the fridging of female characters, on heteronormativity in slash, and on queer representation beyond slash (bisexual, pansexual, asexual and trans people in fanworks and fan spaces). I’d like to touch on race and being a queer Woman of Color in a fandom mostly interested in White male characters.

    Before I get to those subjects, however, I feel a need to return to the original intended topic: the essay I began writing on my phone on the plane.

    And that essay is on the subject of noncon fanworks.

    I love the tube. I love smut. Smut on the tube makes me love this twice as much!

    Summary

    Season 3 in a nutshell, in a pop song. John dances a lot. Sherlock is devoted and sad. Plus, there are some puzzles for you to solve.

    Originally, I thought I would make a fanvid based on this song - about how John can't welcome Sherlock back with open arms in "The Empty Hearse." And then series 3 happened and this song pretty much became canon. Go figure.

    Sister video from John's POV now available here on AO3 or at this link to YouTube:

    You can view this through Johnlock glasses if you like, or put on your "BFFL" glasses. Just don't try to tell me series 3 wasn't a long love story.

    Fanvid homage to John and Sherlock and series 3. This makes me tear up.

    Summary

    Sherlock's dæmon hadn't settled. Once John realised that, so much made sense. Though so much else didn't, because it practically wasn't possible.
