I ALMOST SCROLLED PAST THIS
OH MY GOD
THAT WAS EQUIVALENT TO ALMOST NOT GETTING ON THE POLAR EXPRESS
Hands down my favorite scene. Possibly of the entire series. John’s face. Sherlock’s face. Done.
Setting sex or the lack thereof aside for a moment, no one will ever convince me that this moment isn’t two people falling completely in love with one another. They both look so amazed, like they can’t quite believe what they’re seeing. Is this person real? How, after a whole lifetime of people who are not Sherlock and not John, can they suddenly exist?
And the way each one of them responds is just perfect. John laughs, genuinely, the tension completely gone from around his eyes and forehead for the first time since he came back to London.
Sherlock laughs too but then he bites his lip, hesitates for a moment, because this is something new, because friends aren’t his area and he hasn’t asked someone to spend time with him for the simple sake of spending time together, no ulterior motive, no strategy, just wanting to be together, in the most straightforward, literal, sense of the phrase, since probably before adolescence.
And while their smiles and expressions quieten, they keep the same openness, so that when each turns to glance at the other, observing, making sure he’s still there, marveling, maybe, they don’t look away or get embarrassed the way you do when someone catches you staring. Because for some reason these two men with trust issues, who always, always protect themselves, have decided to put their faith in one another. Instead they lock eyes for a moment of agreement and understanding before looking forward and going along their way, completely assured of, and by, the other’s continued presence.
Today when someone saw Martin Freeman as the background on my phone they asked me if it was George Bush
8: Redraw a favorite piece of fanart.
I’ve messed up a bit because i pulled this out of my fanart folder and only realised when I went looking for the artist that its from the actual manga. I am a fool of a took.

"Have a great day, Detective Inspector. And please do try to refrain from murdering my brother. "
"I will try my best. Have yourself a good one, too."
4 kisses between waking up to heading out. I know..I’m disgusted at myself too.
