Watson In Love.
As promised, I started reading the first volume of Sherlock Holmes. The first in the collection is the A Study in Scarlet, the novel in which John Watson met Sherlock Holmes. If you have watched BBC Sherlock, you might already be shipping Johnlock or Cumberman. And if I am right, I suggest you read the books too.
Since the novels were written in John Watson’s POV, I can feel how much he adored Sherlock Holmes. I am just past the first 42 pages and I can already feel Watson’s deep attraction to Sherlock Holmes. If I hadn’t known better, I would say that he’s plain gay and is completely and madly in love with Sherlock Holmes. The way he described Holmes’ quirks and powers of analytical deduction can be compared to a blind man seeing the light for the first time in his whole existence. And trust me, I am not in anyway exaggerating this. John Watson admired and somehow worships the ground Sherlock walks on. His curiosity of Sherlock’s whole personality is close to obsessive but not in a creepy way.
Plus, being a classic book, it was written in an old-fashioned way and I like it very much. I am a sucker for British literature and films especially Victorian-Era-related ones. And this book satisfies both category. And I am pretty sure I am going to enjoy this read.
