So perhaps 500 isn’t much to you but considering how tiny my blog is, I’m v proud. To show my gratitude to every one of you (even if 90% of you are bots), here are some shoutouts to mutuals and tumblr crushes. Be assured, if I don’t mention you it’s either because I was dumb and forgot your URL or we don’t really interact and I didn’t want to bug you. [image source]

So I was reading an article on ANN today, having a fine time, entertainingly written and all. And then I hit a wall.

A wall that demanded I get my gaytective gear out for One Last Job (pardon the scan quality - I had to use my own collection). 

Because my dudes of all genders, let me tell you, they’re right. There’s no chemistry to be found in Petshop of Horrors. 

We all know, after all, that flowers around a meaningful meeting in josei? Means nothing.

A common sentiment from a man who openly hates and resents the human race, which the chapter up to this point was written around emphasizing. 

That tsundere. 


Presented without commentary. 

And certainly other characters never pick up on anything either.

From friends, to say….

…total strangers…

…domestic disputes….


And the series ends with a separation that Leon refuses to accept, leading him to leave the law behind entirely to pursue D on his own, just for the chance of meeting him again. As though the center around which the series spins was the progress of this relationship from pure hatred to complicated obsession.

…..Sorry what was I saying? 

This is my absolutely perfect and fantastic commission from shootbadcabbies! I asked for hipster genderfluid teenlock revealing to John for the first time that xer genderfluid in John’s bedroom and I got something so much more incredible than I could have ever imagined! Thank you soooo much!

do not think about sherlock and john in the shower together and john laughing at how flat sherlock’s hair gets and how it covers his eyes and definitely do not think about john lifting the hair out of sherlock’s eyes and saying “hi, handsome” and kissing him and absolutely DO NOT think about sherlock gently kissing down the back of john’s neck as he idly washes his back DO NOT EVER


“I mean, you’re good Hermione, but no one’s that good. How’re you supposed to be in three classes at once?”

imagine sherlock undressing john languidly and unrushed and he kisses all along his neck and collarbone and asks him to turn so he can paint his back with  kisses, and he sees john’s shoulder scar, not for the first time but now, in shadow only visibly by memory, it’s even more intriguing, and he brushes his lips over it, not kissing just barely touching, and john shudders and begins to shrug away from his affections, but sherlock utters against his skin, breath hot in the chilly air, “this brought you to me.”

imagine john undressing sherlock kindly and slowly and he noses his freshly-washed hair and kisses the back of his neck in little, adoring pecks, and he sees the scars on his back, he’s seen them before but somehow, washed in blue moonlight, the sight of them is more poigant, and he strokes each gash - short and long and shallow and deep - with his index finger, and sherlock shudders and starts to say his name in protest, but john tips his forehead onto sherlock’s shoulder and mumbles, “these brought you back to me.”

and sherlock brushes his fingers over the minuscule scars on john’s temple and remembers nearly losing him in the bonfire, and john tenderly kisses sherlock’s clean bullet scar on his abdomen and remembers nearly losing him again to someone he once thought he loved, and their scars are little pieces of evidence of the struggle they’ve fought just to be together, and it’s all been so worth it

when sherlock first notices john moving things around the cottage he shrugs it off as spring cleaning but it goes on for about a week and he can’t figure out why so he spends one afternoon pondering all the possibilities and when john comes home he barges out to the cab to give him his deductions but he doesn’t even get to say a word because john opens the door and an irish setter pup comes barreling out barking and tripping over its own feet and it runs to sherlock and jumps up and is a wriggling ball of excitement and sherlock just stares in shock because puppyproofing the cottage wasn’t even a possibility in his mind and john smiles and scoops the pup up and hands him to sherlock and tells him happy birthday and even after twenty five years john still surprises him

imagine john’s blog entries after he and sherlock get together he’ll be writing up a case and it’ll say things like “After a late-night date at Angelo’s, we took off to Scotland Yard” and “I knew when he came crawling to bed at half one in the morning that he’d been up at the lab. It didn’t help that he smelled like chemicals.” and “With the case wrapped up, we’re due for a bit of a lie-in, so if things are quiet around here, well - you know.”

and sherlock will get annoyed because really this has nothing to do with the case and he’ll say so in the comments (sitting next to john in bed, both of them on their laptops) and they’ll get into it online while casually talking in real life, their toes touching, and occasionally john says that sherlock’s comment was a bit below the belt or sherlock will compliment john’s originality and they both chuckle and finally john shuts sherlock’s laptop and types one last comment (We’ll be back - I’ve got to teach him a lesson.) before closing his own and kissing sherlock all over, and sherlock doesn’t complain one bit
