A portmanteau for the slash or yaoi pairing between Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, from the original Sherlock Holmes books written by Sir. Arthur Conan Doyle.
Sherlock + Watson = Shwatsonlock

It can be argued whether Shwatsonlock is canon or merely fandom, but for this particular definition, I will simply describe it as fandom.

Usually, the term is used to describe a genre/pairing of Fanfiction stories, or Doujinshi.

There are a variety of different series/versions of movies and television shows made of Sherlock Holmes. So, while Shwatsonlock may define the general fandom romantic/sexual relationship between Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, the interpretation of these characters in fan works will vary from one series/version to another.

For example,
The Robert Downey Jr. interpretation of Sherlock Holmes is VERY different from that of the Jeremy Brett interpretation of Sherlock Holmes.

As such, when reading a Shwatsonlock story/comic, make sure to become aware of the version that the particular story/comic is based off of. Sometimes it makes a difference, sometimes it doesn't. But that is simply a small mindful note that I personally deem important.
I LOVE that scene where they're talking about boyfriends and girlfriends. That was TOTALLY proof of Shwatsonlock!

May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had β€œcheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: β€œAm I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed β€œI LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.
