hi can I please have a platonic male friendship like is that allowed? aside from SD who is for all accounts and purposes my brother, guys always make shit so fucking weird. yes, I think you’re a kick ass person. no, I do not want to sleep with you or have any other form of non platonic relationship. On a related note, guys, stop doing nice things for girls if you’re only doing it to get them naked or really if you have any motive other than just being nice. If you do nice things for a girl, and she still doesn’t date you, that doesn’t make her a cold hearted bitch and it doesn’t make you the nice guy victim.

This is another example of that understated, easily overlooked characteristic of John Watson’s character, and it’s immediately apparent in the way his legs finally gave out in the end.
Remember that this is a war veteran who suffers psychosomatic pain in his leg because of PTSD. Notice that throughout the entire confrontation with Moriarty and Sherlock, his stance was steady, his voice was calm—exactly the opposite of what you would expect from a man with explosives draped all over his body, exactly the opposite of Moriarty’s past four victims in this game.
John’s leg might have been hurting him, but he bravely soldiered on through that, because the last thing Sherlock needed at the moment was another reason to worry about him. John knew that, given how he saw how agitated Sherlock already was, and he never gave any indication that he was suffering any more until the danger had seemingly passed and Sherlock had somehow regained some of his senses back. Notice that he didn’t let his legs give out until Sherlock was out of the room.
It was a soldier’s pride to stand strong until the very end.

i think the best thing about sherlock and john (and where they’re best written) as couple, in any sense, is that they’re both unapologetic assholes. let’s face it: they’ll very rarely be sweet or kind, but they have this deep streak of protectiveness for each other. and…
