To mark the anniversary of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson meeting, brave souls ventured out into the winter winds of London. Full of laughs, smiles, and an enduring love, they gathered outside the famous door and proclaimed their support for The Great Consulting Detective
The Sherlock Holmes Anniversary Meetup 2012 in London had over 50 people who Believed in Sherlock Holmes. They also want you to Save Undershaw, the home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

So I come home on the Sunday night after this meetup, exhausted and floating on emotions, and this photoset has a lot of notes. Like, A LOT.
I don’t even know what to say. One month ago, some friends were saying we should have another London meetup for Holmes-met-Watson Day, so I went “well, if no one else does it, I’ll just put up a post on LJ and see what happens.”
And then Curly made these cardboard letters, and this is what happened.
Thanks to all who came and made this weekend what it was. Thank you for your presence, your support, your fannish enthusiasm, your conversation, everything. It was great seeing so many happy faces and people enjoying themselves. You were fabulous.
I am moved beyond measure by the amazing response to these photos, I am just sitting here with tears in my eyes because this, this, is why I am in fandom. This is what fandom should be about: fun and friendship. Especially so if the fandom in question is centered around the greatest friendship in literature.
It was truly special and I am sure I will remember it for years to come.
