Can I tell you something?
I don’t like Johnlock, Shwatsonlock, Sherwatsonlock or how you all call it. Also no Mystrade (WTH! Whose idea was it?!), Moriarlock and so on. …
Will you kill me now? Burn me? Make me into shoes?
Well, I believe that Sherlock and John are friends. Close friends, nearly like brothers - but only friends. They need each other, of course. John needs Sherlock to feel alive, Sherlock needs John to feel human … But nothing more. They don’t kiss, touch or have sex with each other. And NO, I’m not homophobic (some of my friends are gay, bi or lesbian, but who cares …).
Often in RPGs, Fanfics or Fanarts John and Sherlock say “I love you.” to each other - that’s okay. I mean, I also say “Love you.” to my brother, my sister, my parents, friends. Love is a incredibly broad feeling, no only for lovers.
But when I see these sex pictures … well, nothing against your fantasy, but I think it’s odd. Because for me, it takes the characters their honor. It’s like raping (okay, maybe this word is too hard … but I don’t have another one in my mind for it).
If they’re “only” bookcharacters (“only”, because I wouldn’t like slashfics about my own characters), it’s easier for me to accept slash pictures and stories. But when they are “real characters” (“real” isn’t the right word … you know, characters played by actors) … I think, everytime you write about them or paint them, you’ll have the actors in your mind. THAT’S LIKE BRINGING BENEDICT AND MARTIN TOGETHER! And this is … I don’t think it should be. Because the actors have their own life, they only lend their faces, voices and behaviour to these characters. Nothing more.
Uuuh, okay. Does someone understand what I mean? Hard to explain (especially in English).
And I hope, you don’t kick me now from your follow-list. It’s just my opinion to this topic …
