To me both of these outcomes are equally acceptable and possible!
the actual proof that tjlc, if we’re right, would be powerful, have a real impact and be fucking important for queer representation is that so many people refuse to believe in it on the grounds that “the writers wouldn’t go there” or that “the bbc wouldn’t allow it” which are arguments that you would never hear when it comes to straight ships. those simple arguments that we heard again and again, even after having disproved them, show how unlikely people think it is to have, yes, two cishet white males being in love and in a queer relationship, introduced and narrated as a heterosexual one, on one of the most popular show around the world. if they don’t even believe that it’s possible, having Johnlock becoming canon would, in fact, be fucking huge progress.
