Summary - "Why would I need you?" "No reason at all."
Author's Notes - A drabble! There may even be a ficlet later today!
Why would I need you? Sherlock had mumbled into his pillow.
No reason at all. That’s what John had replied. Which wasn’t at all true. There were a million reasons why Sherlock might need him.
Or vice versa. Which might have been why John was standing in Sherlock’s bedroom, watching him breathe, assuring himself that the sedative was wearing off and Sherlock was going to be fine.
When he got into the bed and laid his head over Sherlock’s chest, it was just to confirm that the heart in there was still beating.
It was Sherlock who drew him closer.
Squee! That is exactly what I wanted to happen -- well, not that scenario in particular (but it is very sweet and made me squee) -- lots of shippy fic, because the ep is VERY shippy.
I watched it with lorelaisquared and we we squeed the place down, saying almost at the same time how much potential the Moff had just given writers.
I'm not sure I can write Sherlock -- the arrogance and the snark just aren't me (although, I know, I should accept the challenge...)
VERY shippy. Although, there are shipping opportunities all over the place in this fandom! :-)
I find Sherlock challenging to write, too. It's why I've never done it before, and why even these efforts I've made are very brief.
Yes it's true. And they really balance each other out. Sherlock pushes John to think more critically and to look outside the box, while also giving him that sense of adventure that he craves and John bring Sherlock down to earth and makes sure he occasionally does things like eat or call him on his poor social skills.
