I’m not confident in social situations; just going up to someone in a bar and saying ‘Hi’ is going to be even more difficult because they won’t know the real me. They will just know me as a fictional person I play on the screen.

The way John finds out that Sherlock wants to marry him is he catches him practising rambling, nervous proposals to Billy the skull.

"Right, how does this one sound?  ’John, you are not the most clever person in the room, but without you I wouldn’t be half the man I was.  Will you marry me?’  …. no, you’re right, that probably isn’t good… Okay, uh, what about this one? ‘I think we can both say your marriage to Mary was a bit of a disaster, but I can assure you that marriage to me won’t be.  After all, I won’t shoot your best friend in the heart.  Well, your best friend is me, so that would be suicide.. so I’m saying I won’t….kill myself… marry me?’ Well, that one started out well enough….”

John listens to this go on for well over 10 minutes, biting his lip to keep from laughing.  Finally, from his eavesdropping spot, he says “Yes”, walking up to Sherlock and holding his face in his hands.  

Sherlock blinks a few times, “What?” he says, completely dumbfounded.

"Yes, I will marry you, you git!"  John replies with a laugh.

Sherlock’s face goes deep red, his pale eyes turning away in embarrassment, “Oh, so you heard that, did you…?”

John nods, smirking in amusement.  ”Yeah, I did.  You are REALLY bad at this!”

Sherlock opens his mouth to protest but is cut off with a lingering kiss and suddenly the words don’t matter.  All that matters is the result.

i’d bet john loves burying his nose in the crook of sherlock’s neck and breathing him in, then sliding down down down and smelling his boyfriend’s body and hungrily drinking in his scent and while sherlock squirms because it tickles john will just place little kisses and bites on his body and then smile as sherlock’s noises turn desperate when john noses around sherlock’s crotch and the crease of his thigh


What bothers me about people who are against ships isn’t that they don’t see chemistry, they acknowledge the bond, but say its completely platonic. However, if one of the characters were female, you damn well know they’d be together so fucking quickly.
