Ok, so I don’t know how I ended up here and woah!
And also they made this
There’s even a granny!
(there’s a guy who looks like Hulk btw)
and there are
THEY MADE THOR
And there’s also this which made me laugh
this is the coolest shit b.
EVERYONE NEEDS to watch this video!
It’s genius, it’s brilliant, it’s cute, it’s just perfect and everyone who calls himself a Sherlock fan HAS TO WATCH THIS FUCKING AWESOME SHIT. Enough said.
but he obviously isn’t in love with sherlock, that’s just friendship right? friends normally are dead jealous when their mates find a love interest, right, that’s normal? ‘cause you don’t want your friend to be in a happy romantic relationship even though you are not in a romantic relationship with them ‘cause it’s just friendship right, but sherlock can’t be in a romantic/sexual relationship with anyone else because it’s john who’s…….. his friend. right.
The way I see it tbh is that Sholto has two main subtextual/symbolic roles and one of them doesn’t really make sense if him and John acted on their feelings for and attraction to each other, both work instead if it was a missed opportunity (actually my bet in on them having been really close to act on it and Sholto fucking it up)
1) The first role is indicating John’s bisexuality, which considering this is all subtext, works anyway
2) The second role is to parallel/being a foil to and a message for Sherlock, and Sherlock, in addition to being jealous, was extremely concerned over what Sholto did wrong, he was currently very worried about losing John altogether, in every way, so he wants to know “Why don’t you see him anymore? (So I can avoid making the same mistake)” and the answer he must have gotten at the wedding
Now, if Sholto and John had actually been in a relationship, the rather superfluous message Sherlock is getting is “You’ve done well so far to not reveal your feelings, keep going, never ever do that” just after he realized he is in love and it’s already too late
On the other hand if Sholto himself missed his opportunity with John as Sherlock just realized he did, the parallel is much more immediate, then well it’s tragic, but the message Sherlock is getting is “Don’t miss your opportunity” and even if he thinks he just did and that’s why he’s so defeated and resigned and its immediate form it’s just an ulterior confirmation that it’s too late, that he fucked up, we know it wasn’t his last one, he’ll have another and remember this and won’t miss it
and I don’t think that changes anything for John’s sexuality, I am pretty sure John’s been with men and Sholto is there to symbolize that, I just think they got two birds with one stone
Also I wonder if he saw Sholto’s scarred face and thought of himself, and wondered if that’s why John and Sholto aren’t together.
