I can understand that fear as this is a highly successful show and tinkering it can potentially lead to problems, but I think they could speed up the Shamy quite a bit now after some momentous milestones have been reached and the fan-base would be fine with that. It really will be interesting to see how they handle this once we get news about S11 and beyond. There are rumours about negotiations for another multi-year deal happening so assuming they can work something out we'll be looking at the prospect of another 3-4 years. What will they do with the next big milestones? Do a few more guaranteed years cause them to delay certain developments? Or do they take the plunge regardless and concentrate on the new scenarios that would arise from the changes? My personal preference would be to start with the living arrangements in S10. After the wedding re-do it would make sense for Lenny to finally take the next step in their relationship and move out. If the writers don't want the move to happen too sudden there are ways to drag it out so that it's not a thing that happens between episodes. Leonard has a ton of stuff that would hardly fit into Penny's apartment so there's definitely a story there about how they deal with that. Will they put something in storage? Will some stuff stay in 4A? There's also the possibility of renovating Penny's apartment and change some of the furniture to add storage for Leonard's stuff (like proper book shelves or whatever). I'd find it hilarious if as a result both 4A and 4B would be a bit chaotic for a few episodes which would probably drive Sheldon mad and could lead to that cute scenario where he hides out at Amy's place for a while. Anyway, if they did something like that it would a believable way to delay the inevitable for a bit. As long as the move/renovation is going on you'd both have the opportunity to have Sheldon live alone for some time while also having a plausible reason for Amy not to move in immediately. Plus, you can have a few "experimental" episodes that play with the prospect of Shamy living together like spleepovers or have them muse about their future together or something like that. You could easily fill half a season with that kind of subplot. Either way though I think once the living arrangements are tackled everything else will fall into place for Shamy. And then things could go at whatever pace the rest of the episodes allow. If the show ends with S10 they could wrap it up relatively quick cause living together/engagement/marriage are all falling into that same bundle of commitment and wanting to share your life with another person so the writers can tie this up in one big story arc leading to a big Shamy finale towards the end of the show. Alternatively if S10 already deals with the living together part and have Shamy make that step then I wouldn't have a problem waiting for a Shamy engagement/marriage a season or two longer if they get to do a few more seasons. It would be more of a pro forma thing then but the writers could still frame it as some ~very special event~ episodes in a hypothetical S11/12 respectively.
