Requested by @thefandomfairy567 : Sherlock x reader were the reader is singing while cooking and Sherlock sneaks up on her and compliments the reader and she falls back and he catches her or something rlly fluffy like that.

Note : It isn’t really one of my best, but, I did what I could.

Silence was a rare occurrence in 221 B, when Sherlock was bored, he’d shoot at the wall. Or when he needed to think, he’d sometimes compose a piece of music and play. So that’s why Y/n was surprised when he said he was going to take a nap. Y/n has known Sherlock long enough to know that him sleeping regularly wasn’t a thing. She had tried to get him to a few days ago, and that didn’t go very well, he just sat in his chair pouting like a child. So him going down for a few hours well was a good thing.

It was almost time for dinner, and Sherlock would probably be up in a while, so Y/n decided to cook something up. Something simple so that Sherlock wouldn’t complain his way through eating it. She stood in the kitchen, the chicken soup she was making was just about ready to be off the stove and into the bowls she had set out.

With the silence of the flat getting to her, Y/n finds herself humming one of Sherlock’s pieces she’s heard him play over and over. She was startled to a stop when Sherlock’s arms wrapped around her waist. Y/n smiles as he presses his lips to her neck, “You’re good at that,” he mutters and Y/n feels him smile against her skin, causing her to chuckle. “At what? Cooking or humming?”

“Hmm, both.”

She turns around when Sherlock pulls away, immediately missing his warmth. “Four hours, that’s a record, Sherl.” Y/n smiles, watching as Sherlock rubbed sleep from one of his eyes with the heel of his palm. “What’re you making?” he asks through a yawn, eyeing the pot behind her small frame. “Chicken soup,” Y/n says, turning around to turn the burner off before looking over her shoulder to see Sherlock just about to open his mouth.

“Don’t you dare start complaining,” she deadpans, turning to face him properly, Sherlock shrugs at her, “Well, you’re going to eat, whether you like it or n–” Sherlock groans, putting his hands into the pockets of his dressing gown. And Y/n could see that he was going to complain anyway. Y/n sighs, trying to move around him so that she could grab the bowls but Sherlock stops her by wrapping his around her waist again. “Are you upset with me, Darling?”
“Yes, because you’re suppose to be eating. But no, you want to go running all over bloody London.” though her words were muffled by his clothes she knows he heard her. Sherlock sighs and kisses her forehead. “Alright, I’ll eat” he agrees, sounding reluctant and Y/n giggles, pushing away from him. Though she manages to slip back on the end of his dressing gown, with a surprised yelp, Y/n reaches for Sherlock’s arm, who already had a firm grip on her waist. “You’re okay,” he laughs, “If you continue laughing, Sherlock Holmes, you can take that soup out for yourself,”
Sherlock’s laugh died down to him simply smiling as he turned Y/n around in his arms. He rests his chin on her head, swaying them both slightly, “You’re only saying that now, Y/n. I know for a fact that you cannot remain angry with me for more than five minutes,” he says, sounding quite sure of himself.

“Oh we both know that’s a lie.”

“Oh really? And when was that proven?”

Y/n leans her head back against his chest, smiling, “Two years.”
“That was a completely different situation. And it wasn’t what I meant either.” Y/n faked gasp, turning slightly so she could look at him, “That one time you stalked me even when I told you I was going out with Molly,” That was during the early stage of their relationship, and Sherlock didn’t quite grasp the concept of trust yet.
Sherlock rolls his eyes, “I had to make sure nothing happened while I wasn’t watching,” he defends, as Y/n goes to open her mouth to spit out yet another piece of evidence to prove his theory wrong, Sherlock’s hand covers her mouth.
“Shush,” he chuckles, swaying them still, “Come on, Sherlock. The soup is gonna get cold,”

“But I wanted to dance with you for a bit,” She could just hear the pout, “Surely that’s not too much to ask of you,”

“Alright, Fine,”

Dating Sherlock Would Involve

I can’t believe I haven’t done this yet

Originally posted by lonelyprincess01

  • Playing with his hair when you kiss, or just to annoy him or when you lay in bed together. 
  • Calling him “Holmes”
  • Sherlock wouldn’t introduce you to Mycroft for a while because he would be worried Mycroft would make you leave somehow. But when you did get formally introduced to Mycroft it would be a little strange…
    “Oh this is your brother? I met him the week I met you in a coffee shop. We had a nice little chat! What a coincidence.”
    You would all know it definitely was not a coincidence.
  • Sherlock would teach you to dance. He would be shy about it at first but once you’d stepped on his toes a few times and looked so shocked and apologetic afterwards he wouldn’t be able to stop laughing.
  • Telling Sherlock you won’t talk to him until he eats something substantial.
    “Oh, you’ll crack eventually.”
    You don’t.
    Sherlock ends up aggressively eating a sandwich in front of you while you burst out laughing - he’d had enough of asking your opinion on a case and you just giving him an eyebrow.
  • Sherlock takes you on cases with him because he likes you to see you (impress you). 
  • You keep laughing at inappropriate times, earning the eyes of everyone at the scene.
    “Sorry, it’s just that that’s Sherlock’s um… face.”
  • Taking baths and showers together because you can both be absent minded in the shower and this helps you save water.
  • John wouldn’t know for a week or so that you two were actually dating. He would’ve thought that you didn’t swing that way so he would be very shocked when he walked in on you and Sherlock making out.
    “Is this um… for a case?”
  • You and Sherlock would dress and undress each other (mainly for motivation for Sherlock) as he would often not bother to get dressed and would stay in the same clothes for days. This way you did it for him (which he quite enjoyed).
  • Subconsciously imitating his clothing style. You don’t realise until there’s a photo of you two in the newspaper. 
  • Laying on his lap when he’s reading through papers
  • Mrs Hudson would adore you. She would keep asking when you two were going to get married.
  • It would make Mycroft uncomfortable to see his brother so happy with someone in that way.
  • Meeting Sherlock’s parents. They have many funny stories about Sherlock to tell you.
  • Sherlock suddenly going to you at random times, holding you by the shoulders and half yelling at you because he’s “realised why I feel this way about you”.
  • Standing up for him with cutting comments whenever someone insults Sherlock. You’ve picked up on how to hurt people with words (you don’t use it very often though).
  • A lot of hand holding but not that much else PDA
  • Imitating him when he’s being stroppy. This causes him to imitate you back and you’re both strutting around the flat in each other’s clothes , shouting mockery at each other until Mrs Hudson bursts in laughing.
    “You two are so strange! You’re perfect for each other!”
  • When she leaves, Sherlock turns to you.
    “We are you know.  I mean, statistically speaking.”
    “What?” You laugh.
    In answer you just kiss each other, him in your clothes and you in his.
  • “Does it make me self indulged to say you look really hot in my clothes, Sherlock?”
    “Perhaps. But I do have to agree.”

That time when Jim Moriarty broke into 221b…. and filmed it

(Bonus: at one point he goddamn purrs his words..)

Living with Sherlock Would Involve
  • Looking after him, or rather, making sure he looks after himself.
  • Being his contact with John, because John still wants Sherlock to be okay, even if he doesn’t want to talk to him.
  • Being woken up by Sherlock searching through your clothes, throwing everything on top of you on the bed until he finds a silk scarf, which he takes out with him into the kitchen, slamming your bedroom door behind him.
  • “Oh did I wake you up? My apologies.”
  • Mycroft keeping an eye on you. You get annoyed at him for this until one day he sees you walking home in the pouring rain and picks you up. You say he can come in for tea but he declines and quickly leaves.
  • Sherlock playing the violin very loudly when he wants you to wake up. “Oh good you’re up, read this.” 
  • Locking your bedroom door so Sherlock can’t get in. He quickly picks it so you install several different locks and puzzles to stop him from getting in. It turns into a little bit of a game so you don’t really mind when Sherlock shows up lying at the end of your bed one morning after spending the whole night trying to unlock your door. “I did it.” He says groggily.
  • Playing cards late at night. Sherlock insists on staying awake to wait for news so you stay up with him. Cards is the only way for him to keep you awake and focused (since you’re so competitive) so Sherlock is happy to play card games with you.
  • You invent games, puzzles and tricks to entertain Sherlock because a confused Sherlock is entertainment to you. Sometimes he pretends he knows the answer but won’t tell you (even though he doesn’t know). 
  • Screaming at him when you’ve had enough, when you’re fed up of his attitude because you care about him and he usually acts indifferent. This ensues. 
  • On the days when it’s too much for you and you’re crying and screaming at him to go away, Sherlock stays and tries to comfort you. Even though you appreciate the effort, Mrs Hudson’s tea and biscuits are much more helpful.
  • Sherlock telling you he actually does like having you around, even though you can be “a smug pain” sometimes.
  • “Ditto.”
