30 Day SuperWhoLock Challenge - Day 2

Day 2 = "Favorite 'Sherlock' ship?"

I'm definitely in the minority here (I make up part of 3% of the fandom*), but here it is:


Sure, it's not canon, but that doesn't stop it from being awesome. The unrequited frustration Molly has to be feeling is about the level of agonizing torture us Sherlolly shippers go through every time we watch the show. What makes it even worse is that it's been three seasons and SIX YEARS of waiting. And still nothing, save for the numerous sparks and chemistry that neither of them act upon. GAH.

I'd just like to say, for someone who can correctly identify every other single aspect of someone just by giving them a glance, Sherlock Holmes sure is oblivious to Molly's feelings. EVEN JOHN SEES IT. Everyone knows Molly would do anything, anything, for Sherlock. Hell, she even pretended he was dead for two years in order to keep him safe.

I always like to describe Sherlock and Molly's relationship as Sheldon and Amy's from "The Big Bang Theory." They're two extremely different people when it comes to more social aspects, but they share a lot of the same interests and help each other out in their weaker areas. Sherlock helps Molly become a stronger and more assertive person throughout the seasons while Molly tries her best to educate Sherlock in empathy. It's a perfect match.

Now if only we could get Season 4 . . .

*a random percentage I pulled out of thin air totally professional and accurate statistic

A hallmark of the brilliant is not noticing the most basic things in his or her environment. Given Sherlock's complete and total brilliance, it's frustrating, but not entirely unexpected that he doesn't (or won't) see it. I appreciate your exact statistics, by the way.

Ooooh, I love your assessment of why they work and I wholeheartedly agree. The long-term waiting reminds me of Niles and Daphne as well as Jim and Pam. The trailer is out TODAY for Season 4! Woot!

@Dr. Mark Ha ha, probably because their mind is too preoccupied with more complex things to notice the obvious, right? He'll come around. ;)

@Boquinha Thank you! The best ships tend to be the ones that drive us the most crazy, usually by taking the longest to actually sail. I'm so excited!!
