There are lots of little things to find and details to enjoy in this piece, so I’ve honed in on some of them for you. ♥
J: Look, I do have one or two other things on my mind this evening.
S: Like what?
J: You are kidding.
S: What’s so important?
So I saw this joke yesterday and I had to do it.
If this doesn’t happen in Season 3, I’ll be very disappointed. xD
a dumb little comic i shit out in english class
No please look at the scarf
Considering the light, and time, it’ a lot similar to Sherlock’s scarf from second season
Also, John in the two series NEVER wore scarves,
Johnlock couldn’t be more canon.
IS JOHN REALY WEARING SHERLOCKS SCARF
HE THINKS HES WEARING HIS DEAD BEST FRIENDS SCARF
How the hell did I never notice Mycroft trying to suppress a little smirk in this scene (second .gif). John’s saying Sherlock doesn’t feel things in that way and Mycroft is like, “Oh John, you stupid boy. You are new.”
I LOVE that little smirk!
I’ve always thought that it means not only something directed at John and along the line you pointed out (“Oh, John, you think you know him, by now, but how far are you, still, from really understanding my little brother!”), but ALSO something directed more to Sherlock (“So, brother dear, a nice job you made in persuading even your flatmate and best friend that you are different from any other human being - that you are not even actually human - and that you are immune to such mundane sentiments and emotions… And I detect also a bit of wounded pride, behind it all, don’t I?”).
Of course, as usual, I’m probably reading too much, in it…
I coloured inchells’ lineart! :)
Johnlock exchange for 221b-bitches and her prompt “Catch me if you can.” I decided to be obvious.
So I made an AU where John and Sherlock never met and so John turned to a life of crime to try and quench his thirst for danger. He doesn’t stop actually being bored until he attracts the attention of Sherlock Holmes- And he’s willing to do anything to keep his interest
John wants to hurry up to the part where he gets to punch Sherlock
Figure I might as well upload this - just the John and Sherlock loop, as a transparency, in case anyone wants it.

…I suppose I can finally post this, since I’ve seen more or less everyone posts their works here and there and it’s been almost an year now ;u; So here it is :)
Sherlock, John is the most precious gift that heaven decided to give you.
First: I think it’s really sweet that John never judges Sherlock for not being able to tell the difference between behaving well or badly when it comes to other people’s feelings. I mean, once he understands that Sherlock actually can’t tell.
I know fandom gets a lot of mileage out of the “bit not good” thing, which I enjoy, but I also think it’s a sort of bittersweet phrase coming from Sherlock’s mouth. It sounds like something he’s been asking himself for most of his life. Because he doesn’t say, “oh, was that inappropriate?” he asks, “not good?” as if his goal is to be good.
But good is never his goal. Great, maybe. Right. Brilliant, certainly. Flawless. Impressive. But never just good. Never morally good, either. He is not, I don’t think, a good person. The fact that it comes up in ethical or moral situations makes it sound like a really old criticism.
We don’t dissect cats on the pavement, Sherlock. That’s not good. It sounds like something you tell a child, because more complex words and meanings are either too harsh or will be lost on them. You’d say something is not good rather that telling a child they’re doing something bad. As opposed to using language even stronger and more precise than that. I like this element of the show, because it demonstrates that for all Sherlock’s sophisticated and mature intellectual prowess, he reverts to childhood notions of good and not good when it comes to social interaction. As if the more mature distinctions and nuances are completely beyond him.
I also appreciate that John says one word to Sherlock to get him to realize his behaviour is inappropriate. “Timing.” It suggests (as most things in Hounds do, thank god for you, Mark Gatiss) that they have had a previous conversation wherein John attempted to explain to Sherlock that the timing of his commentary can sometimes be improved, because people are frequently not ready to hear about Sherlock’s deductions in moments of pain and weakness. John’s “timing” line here sounds like he’s reminding Sherlock of that conversation (or set of conversations). This rings especially true because Sherlock knows exactly what John means with that one word. He’s instantly frozen by it, too. He listens to John. He takes John’s direction extremely well.
This relationship is so well-written. *dreamy sigh* That’s fine, you can go on about Cumberbatch’s cheekbones. I’m going to be over here pining over that character development and relationship building. I have such a crush on these narrative structures!
