Drug use in HLV. I may be totally off base but: Why does Sherlock let John see him? Attention as you said, but also I think he thinks John won't break his cover. He doesn't get how badly it's going to upset John to find out he's using. John may not be helping as much as he could, but he doesn't leave Sherlock there or buy the "for a case" explanation, and drags him to the lab so he can't claim he was only pretending to use or some such. Maybe he subconsciously knows Molly will say what he can't?
John or Sherlock knew she’d say it? Sherlock might have expected Molly to be angry, but I doubt John gives Molly that much thought.
I was mostly struck by how upset John wasn’t. He’s a bit mad, and does say Sherlock could have come to him if he were having trouble, but the issue is pretty much dropped when Sherlock does something even worse: appears to sleep with a woman. Mwahahahah.
I assumed that John wasn’t that upset because that is simply his character. He is always letting ridiculous and dangerous things slide, and that is one large reason why he is able to coexist with Sherlock. I think he also realizes that acting like a normally emotional human being around Sherlock tends to go over his head. Try to push Sherlock too hard (emotionally or otherwise) and he will just pull further into himself. That’s what’s happened in the series so far, anyway.
I think he was much more struck by Janine because while drug use is, as terrible as it sounds, expected from Sherlock, sex with a woman is not. John couldn’t really wrap his brain around this new development. And apparently didn’t quite estimate the depths Sherlock would go to for a case… :]
my pressure point is sherlock’s love for john
same. moffat and gatiss could do terrible things to my heart in the future… gotta steel myself.
Sherlock & Molly ✧ His Fake | Genuine smile.
I spend an embarrassing amount of time thinking about the human face and its expressions (I studied the FACS, just to put some context in there) and this man is amazing.
do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general
As Sherlock once said: That’s me, by the way. Hello.
