I often see posts about “the moment John fell in love with Sherlock” or vice versa or something to that effect. And they’re all very sound theories, often backed up with psychological and visual frame-by-frame analyses. But the fun part is that they’re all different moments, probably dozens of them. Which leads me to conclude that the entire show, at least the first 2 seasons, is basically John and Sherlock continuously, repeatedly falling in love with each other. 

Sometimes I think this is a problem in dealing with a semi-canon ship and maybe even canon analysis in general; everything suddenly requires a specific and concrete explanation. The problem with theories about any text, of course, is that they are all bullshit, to one degree or another. Fiction itself is about truth-telling, but at the same time it’s a construct of lies; the parts that are truth are timeless. The lies are all in the fiddly details.
The only real truth is love: they love each other, and it’s canon. You can’t— there’s no need to— pin it down, ensure it ‘goes’ anywhere or ‘starts’ somewhere. The thing about true love, it feels like it’s always been there, and it’ll always be there: it feels like they’ve known each other forever, and they always will. They walk together through the streets of London at night, and it’s always just the two of them, against the rest of the world. That’s all that matters.
The power of fiction lies in reminding us of basic things about human nature, not in revealing plot-twists or determining final outcomes. That’s why it’s ‘always 1895’, and Holmes and Watson are always in Baker Street somewhere in the human unconscious, sitting by the fire while Holmes talks and Watson listens. And Sherlock and John, their younger modern versions, are always walking side by side, smiling at each other with that breathless, giddy grin. John is admiring, Sherlock preens. He’s just finished rattling off an impressive deduction, and he knows he’s brilliant, but he wants to hear John say it again, and again, and again. Every time is just like the first time. It’s never enough, not for either of them. It never will be.

This is so beautifully written. And so true. Thank you.
