college student: biology major. 20. Connecticut, USA.
here there is:
bands (mostly rock and roll- my chemical romance, avenged sevenfold, foo fighters, panic! at the disco, U2, guns n roses, coldplay, metallica, green day, empires, taylor swift, etc), avengers, supernatural, doctor who, the office, daily show, colbert report, the west wing, harry potter, lord of the rings, firefly, merlin. also movies, politics, funny stuff, science, pretty things, whatever the fuck I want. little to no personal stuff.
What I always found so amazing about this moment is that Sherlock didn’t even consider that John wouldn’t know what was going on, not because Sherlock is rude or inconsiderate, but because Sherlock sees John as an equal. Mrs. Hudson wouldn’t understand. Lestrade wouldn’t get it. Anderson? DEFINITELY NOT. But John, his friend John, would because Sherlock doesn’t feel the same as he did during that crime scene in Study in Pink. He doesn’t assume that John is stupid or anything like that because John has proven himself worthy of his respect. He has come to a point where he assumes that they are equal in intelligence. When he’s with John, he is no longer a giant among insects because he feels that he can look John straight in the eyes without him flinching.
And whether you ship it or not, that’s love. That’s respect and friendship and love.
aww i never thought about it that way. mutual respect and friendship.
