I lost my cool at the 'I helped him put up some shelves', because 'I'm putting up some shelves tonight' is a British euphemism meaning 'I'm having sex tonight.' Basically Sherlock admitted that he screwed the chip shop owner, and the smirk at the end says it all. There is no way the writers aren't aware.
Another thing: it will be a while till I’ll post any new art. I really have to focus on my animated short now. I might doodle something here or there to take a break, but no new otp challenge arts for the next few weeks. Sorry :)
“We decided early on that we needed someone very beautiful, in contrast to Benedict! Well, I was asked, they forced me. It’s hard. I could have been very noble and said no but life’s too short. I would kill to play Mycroft Holmes, so I just am!”—
Mark Gatiss on the arm-twisting that persuaded him to play Mycroft
john finds out accidentally one day when he prods sherlock in the belly as he tells him he needs to eat today, and sherlock just lets out a short bark of laughter before quickly covering his mouth. And john gives such a grin and says “sherlock, are you ticklish?” and sherlock would deny it of course but before he even gets the words out john’s spidery fingers are all over his ribs and he’s straddling sherlock’s hips to hold him in place and sherlock is laughing so hard and running out of breath and begging john to “pah- aha ahj sto- p hha h ah- stop stopaha h pleasth john thtopppphaha” and john shows mercy eventually, out of breath and as he comes to his senses he realises the position he’s gotten themselves in; straddling sherlock’s hips, their faces so so close, breathless and practically breathing each other’s air. and he looks at sherlock’s lips; plush, wet and closer than he thought he would get to them. he leans forwards just that extra few inches. and kisses him.
So I’ve just had a crisis and a minor panic attack because I thought I lost my whole project with 90 seconds of animation I was working on. I managed to recover half of it. I’m so angry right now. My hands are still shaking a bit.
do you ever just think about how when sherlock was dying and he met all those people in his mind palace and none of them had one nice word for him? how molly slapped him and mycroft told him how stupid he was and such a disappointment and that mummy and daddy were very cross with him? and how moriarty taunted him and told him to just die already and how sherlock then just gave up and his heart just stopped?
