    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.

    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:

    http://youtu.be/htHcMJD9bBw

    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.

    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.

    Summary

    Two musical notes: Every parrot and every construction worker knows them. Shrill and salacious, so Sherlock will remember: You are on display. It’s supposed to be a compliment. Supposed to make him feel good, that they have laboured to remind him.

    It makes him feel like a package of meat, set down into the cooler, raw and waiting to eaten.

    Summary

    The evidence is all there: we know it's bound to happen. Sherlock Holmes and John Watson are going end up together, aren't they? Obviously! We can show all the evidence in meta posts on tumblr (and oh we do, we do!), but we could also sit them both down and tell them it's going to happen. And how it might happen. Doesn't hurt to nudge them along, does it?

    "All these years later, John knows that taking Sherlock's hand that night didn't just mean escaping from the police. That 'take my hand' were not the only three words uttered in that moment. That the underlying, hidden requests would map out the rest of his life." What else went unsaid between them? Covers 18 years of Sherlock/John. Ship it how you like it. M for language.

    Summary

    The metaphor is imperfect but still workable. If my long term memory is a hard drive, then my short term memory is RAM. The hard drive became read-only following the illness. New data is stored in RAM and can be used while I remain awake. Going to sleep – ‘turning off’ – wipes the RAM, returning the system to what it was prior to the illness.

    Sherlock tours worldwide with the English National Ballet. John dances the Lindy Hop competitively all across the globe. That they would meet, then, by the slimmest of chances in one lonely city, is pure coincidence. The whole 'dancing together' bit is a little more planned. Dancer!AU.
