Between talks and looks

“We need to talk.” 

“We do?”



“No idea, but John told me we did.”

She was unsurprised to see John shuffle awkwardly on his feet, his eyes fixed on the floor before he with his clenched fists said. “I’ll let myself out.” He didn’t go without throwing Sherlock a look however (you-idiot obvious in his expression), but he seemed to barely register it sniffing briefly, as the doors to the lab banged shut behind John who walked off quickly, clearly not keen on staying. 

Molly frowned slightly before pocketing her pen, as her attempt at writing down notes on the blood samples before her would have to wait. “Umm…what’s wrong?” she said watching as Sherlock let out a sigh.

thenworld asked:

Sherlock having one of those won't speak a word day, that turns into a week, and then to 10 days... but Molly gets anxious at day 8, and trying to get Sherlock to speak again because she has to tell him she found out she's pregnant ? c: have a nice day!

Day One:  It’s nothing new. It happens after every big case, big event, but she was nonetheless surprised, since he hadn’t been working on anything. And like always she feels tempted to chuck something at his head.

Day two: Changing her clothes in the living room changes absolutely nothing, but John Watson does accidentally see her left breast, “Oh my God, sorry, sorry.” He’s blushing furiously, while she’s more annoyed with her boyfriend than anything. When she goes to bed that night, she wonders slightly why on earth her breasts feel a bit bigger, but she doesn’t think much about it.

Sherlock tries to find the best way to tell Molly he loves her.

I always end up tweaking things, despite myself, sorry.

“So you two, then?” the sentence keeps hovering about in her head, smacking against the insides of her mind, and making her question everything. It’s not the first remark that she’s laughed off the last couple of months. They’ve been building quite a lot, a whole tower of what was supposedly presumptuous commentary from friends and co-workers, and like the occasional Jenga she sets up with Sherlock, it’s all tumbling down. Molly’s not sure when it actually took place or began. Maybe it’s the endless amounts of ‘I’m sorry’-coffee’s he began putting about everywhere, burning off pounds on expensive breweries to appease her when she had just began burying the torch she held for him, still flickering ever so timidly. Or maybe it was the point when she finally forgave him when Moriarty finally swanned off, the pair of them reaching what she thought was some kind of friendly equilibrium. It wasn’t unorthodox that he strode into her flat in the early mornings or late nights or even stayed - all night - all day.

“It’s just Sherlock,” she’d explained to all who asked, shrugging it off like any old behaviour, until the goggles everyone else were wearing came into her care. Suddenly everywhere there were signs - - tiny insignificant gestures - - him feeding Toby, or helping her tidy when she’d been at work for a double-shift, or just being all-round nice.

Signs + procrastinating
  • Aries:Starts off quite early and everyone hates them, but it turns out during the last minute that they haven't actually finished yet and they're panicking.
  • Taurus:The illusion of productive procrastination, also might be tempted to find someone else to do it for them.
  • Gemini:The putting off important life decisions until the very last minute, coupled with frenzied hair pulling.
  • Cancer:Talks to everyone who's done it or not, and gets easily tangled up with someone who hasn't done it, making them postpone their own work for a little while.
  • Leo:Excellent procrastination, watches a zillion videos on youtube and brings several into their procrastination like it's a big event.
  • Virgo:Documents whenever they're procrastinating, but inadvertently guilt-trips themselves into getting back into it.
  • Libra:Balances the procrastination with the actual work-doing and multi-tasks their way through it.
  • Scorpio:Will watch entire tv series and convinces themselves it's because they can't deal with the actual thing so it's okay.
  • Sagittarius:Does one thing then drops it, then another and drops that as well, and feels a certain ennui to the procrastination if it's done alone.
  • Capricorn:Pretends to have done the thing, because everyone assumes they've done the thing.
  • Aquarius:They don't really give a fuck about deadlines, but they always manage to deliver anyway.
  • Pisces:Will sigh their way out of doing it, but does it anyway with bitter energy.

so i’m hanging with my new classmates, one of them who seems like a total jock/frat boy starts to speak, and then he’s like “no, no that’s probably offensive.” and i’m like what is? so of course he starts. “umm, so me and my friends work out together you know. and we shower together naked. no problem, but one of my other friends is like ‘that’s gay. don’t do that’. he’s a total homophobe actually. and we all of course end up saying ‘hell yeah we’re gay’ and i just drag it a little further to freak this guy out by pretending to go down on one of the other guys until he leaves… i did accidentally get a bit of dick in my mouth. so. i can’t ever say i haven’t tried.” 

anonymous asked:

Molly and Sherlock work together on an experiment at Baker Street till the early hours of the morning. Sherlock suggests Molly stay the night. The next morning, Mrs Hudson delivers breakfast and misinterprets seeing Molly in Sherlock's robe - or does she?

The teacup wobbled in its saucer while she got up the steps, her hip tender from the weight of the tray. She didn’t understand why she felt the need to baby him, as he was her ‘tenant upstairs’ according to Aurelia, but she did feel like mothering the man (despite his mother having mothered him enough). He was maybe not the most grateful and attentive tenant, but his gratitude was usually displayed quietly and modestly (very unlike his personality, she knew). 

“Sherlock?” she said, immediately tutting at the sight of the disarrayed and cluttered sitting room. Papers littering every surface, forgotten coffee cups staining glass and mahogany centerpieces. Every item in his flat was quite pricey of course, though he never treated them with any consideration despite their high price-tag. “Oh that boy,” she said resting the tray on the coffee table, sighing as she picked up a sword lying on the floor. “You’d think he’d-,”

“Oh, sorry, he’s out in the shop,” said a voice causing her to drop the sword, and she wondered briefly if he’d let a client sit and observe the mess, almost feeling like apologizing when she caught sight of a familiar face.

[ Received 17:15 ]

Emergency. Come to Baker Street immediately. - SH

[ Received 17:16]


She expected a body, an experiment gone wrong or even Mrs Hudson in hysterics over ‘another moron who she pointlessly pursued in her attempt to cling to her youth’, but she was handed a wisp. “Umm, you said it was an emergency?” she said frowning at the wisp. 

“It is. It’s my mother’s birthday-,”

She snorted and he glared in return. 

“…Meaning what?”

“I need to bake a cake,” he said looking down at the kitchen table, studiously ignoring her gaze, as he straightened the bowl that was there. The other kitchen supplies weren’t your regular fare, but things she recognized as lab equipment. A buret filled with milk - an Erlenmeyer flask with flour and so on. 


“Birthday,” he said with a tone.
