I really wish I could see the moment John’s fist hit the Chief Superintendent’s nose.

I can do this with a look-Freeman. Hot damn.

It’s mesmerizing how his eyes never leave the target.

And how he slowly transitions from completely crestfallen to dangerously pissed off.

reminder that there were actual, talented, trained and experienced people who stood in a room and decided, “yes, this is the angle we’ll use. yes, we’ll have sherlock drop to his knees before john rather than stoop. yes, we’ll do it this way rather than from the side or a close-up of hands removing the bomb vest. this is the one. this captures exactly what we want to capture.”

God I LOVE screencaps like this, and I love the shippy readings, and I just fucking love transformative fandom. But. When we say there were “people who stood in a room and decided” to pose it this way, and when we imply undeniably that they intended the shippy suggestion, then, well, I start to be really uncomfortable. Sherlock’s on one knee for 3.2 seconds, so this is one frame out of 95. And more importantly, it’s a 3.2 second shot from a completely non-sexual context, where John and Sherlock think they’ve just escaped a madman. It matches the angle and composition of all the other long and medium shots of John in the vest, and there haven’t been any other extreme close-ups of body parts, like hands and the vest. It’s the obvious shot for the moment. Saying they intended it to imply a blowjob is really far-fetched.
Look, I hate to play the heavy. I don’t want to lose the shippiness. (And yep, I take this image and fill in the missing blowjob with gusto, please and thank.) I want other people to dig the shippiness, too, including casual audiences. But if we justify it with arguments like these, that depend on validating out-of-context images with creators’ intent, I think we make the shippiness seem silly to many people. And it’s not. The homoerotics are there, they’re inherent in the situation and the whole history of detective fiction. But if we link sexualized images like this to showrunner intention, I’m sorry, I think we end up looking foolish. And I for one want people to take fans and their shipping seriously.

What if I don’t want to take it seriously? What if I just do this in my spare time—get on Tumblr, reblog silly things, write silly stuff—just to have fun? Because this is fun for me and it’s fun for other people and I really don’t care if, in this context, the creator didn’t actually want it to appear like a set-up for a blowjob. If they didn’t? Cool. My bad. But it does appear like a set up for a blowjob in the very brief period of time it’s on screen. That actually happened. People see it. I’m pretty sure that if we see it, people associated with filming—people trained in this stuff—saw it and decided to go with it [on purpose or anyway or in spite of it or whatever]. I wasn’t exactly performing a scholarly scene analysis in my post, which was written in approx. 1 minute and encapsulated a fleeting thought I had while looking at caps.
This is how I do fandom. This is how a lot of folks do fandom. This is how we have fun. I really don’t give a fuck if some random person thinks I’m “foolish” for having fun with a ship I love dearly, that means a lot to me, that helps me get through some days, because fandom isn’t about that random person or anyone outside of the fandom itself. If me and 600+ people looked at that cap and what I wrote and got some form of enjoyment out of it, good. That’s all I wanted. The end.
