Dating Sherlock Would Involve

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

  • 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.”

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.”
