It’s a thing. Really.

I swear, I’m creating a new genre of Sherlock fan fiction… brOTP!Lock.

I started writing my own fanfic last night after reading about a gazillion fanfics that took something sweet and turned it into something disgustingly fluffy or something annoyingly smutty. Not everything needs to be romanticized or made truly dirty.

For example, I see stuff like this:

and I don’t necessarily see it in a sexual light. In fact, it reminds me of one of my little brothers and I curling up on the couch to watch movies together. He used to put his head in my lap, and I used to play with his hair. There was nothing sexual about it. There was nothing romantic about it. It was just two friends doing something that felt right to them. It happens.

So… I can imagine putting this into my fanfic and have it be completely normal.

It’s just a shame that some of the fandom needs to twist it into something else.
