did anyone gif this before

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, and Happy Holidays!

I just had a thought… (I don’t know if anyone has discussed this before): Why did they exchange embarrassed facial expressions when this was all in Sherlock’s mind?

This makes me think that maybe John has said something in the past (off-screen) along the lines of “man to man”, and they were both too scared to continue; or that Sherlock is aware of John’s feelings for him and so rejects him.

Please feel free to add anything to this.


Theirs was the love that was meant to be, but wasn’t meant to last.
