Man, I don't even think it's bad fan art, but it's just prima facie somewhat ridiculous

That doesn't mean you can't like it. You can love things, totally sincerely, while recognizing they are ridiculous. But it is a ridiculous dang ol piece of fanart.

Still not OK to post it here without permission & for the irony or whatever. It just fucking sucks to treat other people's art that way--whatever the intent (and there's a lot of fan art that might strike YOU as tacky or ridiculous, but is made sincerely for love by the artists).

You know, this fandom in particular has a BAD history with art being mocked by outsiders, including people who've shoved it in the actors' faces in public while filming in the hopes of a "har har how gross" reaction.

The fact that I'm not even IN the fandom and am aware of this stuff shows how fucking tone deaf and/or cruel you'd have to be to contribute to the finger pointing and mockery.

Nope. Nopitty nope.

A lot of the secrets posted here feature fanart, and it's fairly common for it to be used as a negative or made-fun-of background. I'm not absolutely certain why the objectively ridiculous Dirty Dancing AU Johnlocke art is the one that has you specifically clutching your pearls and wailing "But think of the FANARTISTS!" Buuut, having taken a few steps into Sherlock fandom when I got into the show, and quickly realizing why the fandom has that well-deserved reputation that it does, I can hazard a guess that this kind of art is your favorite thing and you consider it absolutely 100% deadly serious no-jokes-allowed, as many Johnlockers do for some ineffable reason.

You are genuinely just massively over-reacting to this because of some other thing you're associating it with

This thing is not the same as the thing you think it is. It's just not. I really don't think this is being done in the negative way you think it is. I'm sorry it apparently triggers some kind of hair-trigger for you but
