You know what I love about John and Sherlock?
That they’d give their lives for each other without a second thought. That they’d take another life to save each other without a second thought. That they’d only just met, and they’d already subconsciously committed themselves to each other for life. That every girlfriend John has eventually leaves, because they have to compete with Sherlock Holmes, and you know what? He’s fine with it. That Sherlock let John into his life, his experiments, his cases, within a day of knowing him, and that he never let him go. That even though neither of them is gay, and they certainly don’t have sex or kiss, they love each other unconditionally as couples do.
Best part? Even if they’re not romantic… they’re absolutely and certainly canon and they have one of the best friendships to ever exist. (x)
and we have fan art and fan fiction to fill in the missing bits.
ALL OF THIS, OH MY GOD.
