Johnlock 101 - An Introduction to The Johnlock Conspiracy


While researching #tjlc for my Sherlock essay, I discovered that no one had written something like “Johnlock 101” yet - so I did! Thanks to merlenhiver for breaking her beta hiatus for me!

TJLC: Johnlock is endgame. The writers have always intended John and Sherlock to end up in a romantic relationship. They are planting subtextual clues for viewers to find and piece together the puzzle of the century while systematically lying when asked about it. They are not, in fact, queerbaiting their audience.

People new to TJLC might think we’re all mad and have joined Sherlock in a drug-induced daze of wishful thinking. I grant you, when I first heard the theory that “Johnlock is endgame”, I sighed longingly while chiding myself for being so naïve as to think it would ever happen in real life. Then I started reading meta and subsequently drowned in evidence until I just couldn’t deny that I’m not actually delusional, that it’s actually there and we are not at all mad. Well, at least not when it comes to TJLC.

The aim of this essay is to show that TJLC has a point to people who haven’t spent endless hours reading up on it, who are skeptical, or who are just interested in the topic.

I might call this an “essay”, yet I am not (technically) setting out to convince anyone. I also don’t speak for all TJLCers. Just because I think it’s a strong theory doesn’t mean everyone will, or even that they should. TJLC is one interpretation of BBC’s Sherlock and its subtext. TJLC itself is not one giant hive mind believing the same thing – everyone perceives art, whatever its form, differently. If they didn’t, there’d be no reason for the humanities and the word would be boring…

So no, I am not setting out to impose my opinion of things on you. This is not a polemic document. I am merely presenting my view on TJLC’s findings – where you go from there is entirely up to you.

Let’s begin, shall we?
