Sherlock Tumblr Fic
It wasn’t for a case. Or an experiment. It wasn’t to explain a theory, prove a hypothesis, or cure a bout of boredom.
It was for John.
For five straight nights he did it, though Sherlock wouldn’t tell John just what it was. All the good doctor knew was that Sherlock left for four hours, and when he returned home each evening his cheeks were flushed and he was always half hard.
Yet it was fine. It was all fine.
Because after three years of marriage John knows many things about Sherlock Holmes. He knows the lanky creature’s even smarter than he appears. He’s also as daft as he often seems. But most of all he’s devoted. In his distracted, self-focused way, Sherlock is as faithful and true as any swan to his mate.
The point was proven ten days later when the man who forgets holidays, who’s bad at birthdays, who never knows what to give to this man who asks for so little…just this once he didn’t forget and this once Sherlock knew.
“You look beautiful.”
John grinned down at the bright laces of his new shoes. He felt six feet tall and it had nothing to do with the loft of those shiny heels and everything to do with—
John looked up, blushed.
—with how Sherlock looked at him right now.
The crowd around them was tempestuous, the music emphatic, so the good doctor couldn’t ask how his husband knew he loved the tango, or where Sherlock had gone for his intensive week of lessons.
No, all John could do was open his arms.
Tall as a reed on heels of his own, Sherlock stepped into that warm shelter, and on the evening of John’s forty-fourth birthday he and his one true love, they danced.
Again Kuuttamo’s beautiful art was my inspiration. And I’ll say no more because look…would you just look at what this woman can do?

Weird Mirror-Universe John
Ever since cumberfoil made me aware that in S3 John parts his hair ON THE WRONG SIDE I have been heartened. Anything I don’t like about S3 I can reasonably claim takes place in an bass ackwards alternate mirror universe.
wait i think the second gif is actually John looking IN a mirror… the breathing and motions are in tandem
OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT. Could this observation possibly be true?! What is going on?!?
Interesting hypothesis! But the crease between John’s eyes is still on the same side in both photos and the degree to which his right ear sticks out (John’s right, the viewer’s left) more than his left is also the same. So I think this isn’t a mirror image.
For a good mirror image, take a look at Sherlock’s headstone at the very beginning of the latest trailer. Based on the sticky out right ear, I am convinced that’s John we see walking up to Sherlock’s grave.
I illustrate this for a fic my friend made for me :) it was written in bahasa ~
