Sherlock Holmes is, if nothing else, odd-looking. He is a truly weird collection of physical characteristics that by rights shouldn’t work, but do. He’s all angles, for a start. He has small, sharp eyes. He’s a bit old-fashioned looking, a bit out of place. His hands are too big, his arms don’t seem to fit properly. His neck is too long. His waist is tiny. He’s skinny. His face is long and thin, intense and tightly controlled, but his hair plays paradox and is shiny, joyful, and out of control. Physically, it’s like he doesn’t make sense. But you can’t take your eyes off him. You can’t figure out how he works, and you want to try. You can only imagine that some part of him rests in another dimension, just outside of your range of vision, making him so oddly beautiful. You want to touch him, but you know you can’t.
John Watson, on the other hand, is perfect. Perfectly normal, perfectly ordinary, the golden ratio of a man. His eyes, nose, and mouth fit perfectly into his face. His hands are precisely the size and shape they should be: his torso is neither too long, nor too short. He is the platonic ideal of a man, a Vitruvian man. You can tell by looking at him that, if you measured his outstretched arms, you would also be calculating his height, down to the last inch. He is so perfectly in proportion that he easy to overlook. When he walks he is perfectly stable, because his legs are the perfect length for his body, and so he has a perfect stride. He does not stomp, lose his balance, or stumble. If you aim for where his heart ought to be, you won’t miss, because where his heart is supposed to be is precisely where it is. John Watson is the most perfectly ordered man you can imagine. Misjudge him, and he might kill you.

I fucking love that scene between Sherlock and John while Janine is getting ready and John is like “you have a girlfriend?” because Sherlock is so fucking smug

Can you just imagine what it will be like for Sherlock the first time he has John in his arms, though? Being so overwhelmed by love he wouldn’t even know what to do with himself… He would be so still, eyes closed and lips parted against John’s hair, just breathing him in. Heart fit to burst with how much he completely, and utterly loves this man.

Yeah.  If it were canon?  If Moffat were writing it, egged on by Gatiss?

I think it would be a little thing.  A surprise peck when Sherlock is leaving to meet Moran, knowing it will be dangerous, and unwilling to involve John.  I think he will shrug into his coat… his battle-dress, and turn at the door… hovering uncertain on the landing.  John will stand, limned by the horrible fluorescent kitchen light, suspicious and hurt that Sherlock is leaving him home.  His hands will be clenched by his sides, legs spread in a stance meant to brace, to steady him against the buffeting of life.  And his eyes will glare, stare, BURN into Sherlock’s, because he KNOWS it’s a lie.

And Sherlock will pop his collar and look at the man.  His eyes will travel over worn skin, deep carved lines, rendered sinew and uncrushable determination.  He’ll be more trapped in the gaze of navy blue than John will be enmired in a churning sea of blue and grey.

Because it’s the last chance.  Sherlock knows it.  He lives his life running numbers, playing opportunities, gambling for the next answer at the expense of his life. 

Sherlock will jolt forward, surprising them both.  Uncharacteristically clumsy, he’ll grab the cheap polyester, plaid collar before him, drag John forward until they bump at the wrong velocity, mash dried lips against a surprised gasp.

And then he’ll run away.  He won’t stay to make it right, to make it sexy.  He’ll leave John with wide eyes and opened mouth.  He’ll leap down the stairs three at a time saying in his head, “I’ll be back before midnight, John,” but actually forgetting to say anything at all.  He’ll call a cab and slide inside before John’s removed numb fingers from buzzing lips.

That’s their first kiss.

And their next interaction is John’s frigid anger, while he cleans and stitches Sherlock’s bullet wound.

And after that.  After that.

Things heat up.

And the screen will fade to black.
