Just got one of the Sherlock books I had ordered in the mail today.
To all my fellow Johnlock shippers: You would LOVE this book!!
It’s basically a published collection of “Johnlock” short stories written by modern-day writers.
Even the introduction to the book is fascinating and enjoyable to read because it discusses a bit of the history behind the “idea” of a romantic relationship between Sherlock and John. There’s even references to the various film/TV adaptations of the Sherlock Holmes adventures, including Sherlock BBC!
The description on the back states: “What other characters from English literature have captivated hearts and minds as thoroughly as Sherlock Holmes and his loyal companion John Watson? Many fans imagine the relationship between these men is deep and more than platonic. In A Study in Lavender, the Holmes universe is queered and authors have devised stories in which Holmes and Watson are lovers, or investigate mysteries of inverts hidden from the laws and cultures of the Victorian era; even the indominable Lestrade has his turn at love; and eerie apparition in the night sky, reminiscent of Jules Verne, draw Holmes to Cleveland Street, home to an infamous scandal.”
Did anyone else squee at the sentence about “Lestrade has his turn at love”? Automatically, my mind went, “OMG! Mystrade!!!” But who knows… :-P
I’m only on the first story right now, but I can say that it is really, really good!
Every Johnlock shipper must own this book!

So proud.
