Just curious... is there any hints of Johnlock in those Irene Adler books? I just started reading them and like OH MY GOD the only way to make it perfect would be to have that in them aklsdfv sorry for bothering you
Alas, as far as I can tell, aside from the standard “Holmes is not interested in women, what is up with you, Holmes” that Holmes is normally subjected to from Watson, there’s no hint of anything. The canon Holmes and Watson dynamic is different from what’s in Sherlock! During many of the adventures detailed in the Irene Adler books, Watson is married to Mary.
I might just not be squinting hard enough, though, because I’m sort of more interested in the Adler and Holmes dynamic in these books. On that note, Nell develops a sort of hilarious contempt for Sherlock Holmes. You’ll see.
—Also, Nell is such a sheltered narrator that I don’t think she’d notice homosexual subtext even if it were there, honestly. So, take some comfort in that.
