I want them to have a dinner again at Angelo’s..

This time I want them to walk together close, fingers entwined with each other’s. 

I want them to lean in to each other and giggle and whisper sweet nothings when they walk together towards their sanctuary,221B.

I want them to stop at the pavement in front of the flat.

And the John will try to role-play and ask, with a flirtatious smile “Aren’t you gonna invite me in?” And will kiss Sherlock. Leaving him almost breathless.

And Sherlock will say ,between breaths “Um…while I’m flattered, by your interest… I think you should know that I am married to…”

“Married to?” John will ask raising his eyebrows.

“A certain Doctor John Hamish Watson. Do you know him?”

“Let’s go upstairs and I will show you if I know him or not.”

Imagine Sherlock.

You grab your things then go downstairs leaving 221B, ignoring John screaming your name. He follows you and when you’re about to disappear inside a cab, he yells “Please, (Y/N), just listen to me for a damn minute!”. You freeze and think about it. Finally, you decide to tell the driver you won’t need him. John smiles a little and puts himself next to you, not convinced you want to hear his words anyway.
“You won’t believe any word I say, am I right”.
“And what else would you expect, John?” you ask with tons of sarcasm on your voice. You want to cry but you beg yourself to behave.
He looks straight to your eyes, suddenly what he wanted to tell you evaporated and now his brain was trying to remember it.
“See?” you said. “You know it’s pointless to keep trying”.
“But we’re talking about Sherlock, he doesn’t know how love works, give him more time, he loves you and you love him, please, stay”.
You close your eyes. He’s been trying to help Sherlock to express his feelings for you but Sherlock wasn’t prepared yet and you were tired of waiting. You did also want to tell Sherlock you loved him but whenever you dropped that subject, he made the impossible to make up any excuse to go away. You were fine with the idea of not bringing the thing again until he was ready but a year passed and you were wasting your time.
“John, it’s… He will never… he… he is married to his job. If what you say it’s true and he loves me too… John, I gave him one year, it’s not my fault”.
John is silent for a little while.
“Please, (Y/N)”.
You look up and you see Sherlock holding the violin with his eyes fixed on you through the window.
“He’s up there, if he doesn’t come and stop me, I won’t come back”.
I call another cab. I hear John going inside to tell Sherlock to go after me but he doesn’t come. I take the cab and start crying all the way home. I know he did it to protect me because his lifestyle is dangerous and he couldn’t have forgiven himself if keeping me by his side could have had killed me.
(This is so shitty I’m sorry😭😭😭😭 I hope there was a way you guys could unread it lmfao idk why I’m posting it)

No Prank Pledge

When the 2016 dates were announced for 221B Con many people were concerned about it starting on April Fool’s Day. Last year John Oliver had his audience take a No Prank Pledge and we here at HN want to encourage you to do the same. We used his pledge as a basis for the below.

By reblogging this post you pledge the following:

“I solemnly swear that on this April Fools’ Day, I will not perpetuate a celebrity death hoax like some kind of a–hole, because that makes people sad. I will not post fake engagement or pregnancy announcements on social media. I will not hide anyone’s personal property. In fact, I will not play any practical jokes. And if I see someone planning a prank, I will say to them: ‘Hey… you’re being a dick right now. Stop being a dick. Stop being a dick. Seriously, stop being a dick.’”
