'My ideal man. As I sat watching I said to my friend: “He's lovely, isn't he? I'd love to meet him.” Then a couple of months later I did. At that minute Martin walked in and I just had a thunderbolt. It dawned on me: “Oh, God it’s him!” We flirted with each other all day and when I went home he texted me, saying “You left and I wasn’t done flirting with you. That’s a bit rude” - Amanda Abbington on meeting Martin Freeman
Happy 14th anniversary to the cutest couple! (01.08.14)
The Mycroft & John had a plan to take Mary down and Sherlock was being kept in the dark for his own safety theory is my aesthetic
#this would explain why the interactions between john and sherlock seemed so authentic #and why the killing of magnussen and subsequent consequences for sherlock seemed so authentically unexpected by everyone #OH GOD AND THE PAIN OF KNOWING THAT (IF THIS IS CORRECT) JOHN NEVER MEANT FOR MARY TO BE PROTECTED AND BECAUSE HE DIDN’T PROPERLY UNDERSTAND SHERLOCK’S LOVE FOR HIM DIDN’T PROPERLY PREPARE FOR WHAT SHERLOCK WOULD DO #and that fits like… literally… exactly in with john’s physical/facial reactions to sherlock killing magnussen #so this happened really because john underestimated sherlock’s love for him #which is a perfect setup for the 3 garridebs moment when john finally does understand
#also the fact that s3 was from sherlock’s pov instead of the usual john pov #it would be AMAZING because we would have been in the dark because SHERLOCK was in the dark #and he’s our unreliable gay baby narrator
Remember how when Sherlock had his relapse the first and only person John called was Mycroft
They are allies in Sherlock’s well being
And then Sherlock gets fucking SHOT
Don’t you think Mycroft and John might have had a conversation about that???
What if John and Mycroft have a plan to take Mary down
What if they kept the truth from Sherlock “for his own good,” the way Sherlock kept the truth from John at the end of S2
And then Sherlock effed it up by shooting Magnussen
What if John knows Mary isn’t pregnant and lied about the scan to keep Sherlock in the dark
Remember how oddly smug John was at the end of HLV
What if he’s the dragon slayer and Sherlock is the damsel in distress this time

You know few things are more beautiful than Sherlock’s face in the pilot when John calls him brilliant on their first crime scene
like John’s face in the pilot when he looks at Sherlock deducing on their first crime scene

Right that’s cool and all but consider the fact that Sherlock will look so so terrified when John demands to know—quite furiously—how long Sherlock has felt this way about him and Sherlock is stammering and feeling like his whole world is going to collapse around him until John is sweeping him into his arms and whispering “me too you idiot, from the very moment we leaned back against that wallpaper together i was yours” against his throat.
Sometimes Sherlock wakes up to find John watching him sleep. He still gets shy when he sees it. Maybe even blushes a bit.
I was just thinking about Sherlock’s father telling Mary that his wife is a flake but a genius, and that she’s unbelievably hot.
And it occurred to me that while I’ve been shipping it with my whole heart all this time, I may have underestimated how devastatingly attractive Sherlock actually is to John. There is the constant staring as a big hint, of course. The lip-licking, sure. The “being all cool with your cheekbones” comment, his agreement with Mary that watching someone you love storming into a dangerous situation is “a tiny bit sexy.” He knows. Of course he knows! He’s been experiencing that first hand, obviously!
But then this comment from Sherlock’s father which puts it all very plainly. He’s John, isn’t he? The mirror image and the future image. Sherlock says as much when John asks Sherlock on the stag night if he’s pretty, as far as I can tell. Sherlock’s impression of what’s attractive is based on childhood impressions, influences and role models. Of course John is attractive to him. John is perfect, as far as Sherlock is concerned. He’s the vitruvian man.
John is to Sherlock what Sherlock’s father is to Sherlock’s brilliant mother. And he says to Mary what John can’t quite manage to say to anyone, not even his therapist. Not yet, anyway. It’s what he will say, one day, when this drama and excitement is all over. When he’s an old man sitting and humming and looking back over the amazing things they’ve done together. Yes, Sherlock is a flake. He’s also a genius. And…he’s unbelievably hot. There was no other option for him. He couldn’t have chosen otherwise. He’ll drink his punch and hum to himself and Sherlock will finish his sentences and give him an affectionate pat.
Sorry, John. You’re already a passenger on this train, and it’s clearly only going in one direction. Good thing you don’t really want to be anywhere else.
John wants Sherlock to top but Sherlock is nervous and unsure and John says “Please, Sherlock. For me.”
