So I Got A Question...

So you know how people go from ugly to gorgeous and how that’s called “glo’in up”, “glo up”, etc. Well what if you didn’t exactly get more attractive, but it like increased a small amount, like from “ugly” to “aight”?

Is the term for that like “dim escalation”? If not, I’m coining it now.

Movies don't accurately portray how willing people are to escalate
  • *weird light in sky*
  • Movie person:Totally just swamp gas or secret missile test.
  • Real person:IT'S ALIENS
  • *hears noise in house*
  • Horror movie person:Must have been the cat.

ASiP, first time it looks like they’re holding hands —> TRF, first time they hold hands = 5 episodes later

TBB, first time Sherlock puts his hands on John’s face for, ‘work reasons’ —> TEH, first time Sherlock puts his hands on John’s face for, 'friendship reasons’ = 5 episodes later.  Both times wearing black leather gloves.  Could be like an emotional condom: a way to buffer intimacy.  Or maybe it’s something sexy because he’s more comfortable with his sexual attraction than John.  Or maybe both.  

TGG, first time it looks like John is jumping on him and touching his face with the Golem as our symbolic stand-in.  Golem/John has bare hands; Sherlock wears leather gloves  —> TEH, John actually jumps on Sherlock and puts his hands on him for, 'anger reasons’ = 4 episodes later.  Both have bare hands.

Basically, first we have something that’s a total fake out or, 'not really’, real. Then we have something that’s real but platonic.  Then we should have something romantic.  We can see an escalation, here, already.  

If this is a pattern then by 4 x01 we should have more hand holding and by 4 x 02 we should have face touching and people jumping on each other.
