why don’t we talk about the fact that we have a canon coldflash song that was actually used in the show during arguably one of the gayest moments barry allen has ever experienced when he was confronting leonard in s&s……
like the lyrics to cold as ice are literally…… the narrator talking about how the subject is throwing their love away ??
You’re as cold as ice
You’re willing to sacrifice our love
You want paradise
But someday you’ll pay the price, I know
I’ve seen it before
It happens all the time
Closing the door
You leave the world behind
You’re digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you’ll pay

Watching John and Sherlock’s meeting, in ASiP, we can see that they both look pleased to meet each other. John readily offers his phone (heart) and Sherlock readily takes it. There’s a reciprocity there that is obvious: Sherlock is flirting up a storm and John is loving it.
The recreation of their meeting, which Sherlock reconstructs in his Victorian mind palace, shows us a significantly more enthusiastic Sherlock and, I think, a more lukewarm John. It is possible that in Sherlock’s mind when they first met, he was the one who was immediately obviously besotted whereas John maybe was not. He may not have been as sure of John’s attraction as the audience is.
I was inspired by this post by @merillock of John’s reaction to seeing Sherlock beating a corpse. I realised that his smile is not a genuine smile, it doesn’t reach his eyes. His eyes look more concerned or bewildered, even. A smirk momentarily reaches his lips and then is gone. He finds this peculiar, it seems. Interesting enough but not necessarily pleasing.
Sherlock beating the corpse is one of his gayest moments, and he is now beating that body harder and longer than ever. Maybe this could be showing us Sherlock seeing John seeing how very gay he is and having a lukewarm reaction to it. John is not pleased, he’s bemused, maybe. But his eyes are not warm, they’re standoffish.
In contrast to their actual meeting where John looks guarded but actually pleased, in his own mind he may not have perceived just how much John was really into him. Sherlock knows for sure that he was into John but he doesn’t seem as sure how John felt. Not just about him as a potential mate but about him as a gay man.
Later, when they find Mary at Baker Street, Sherlock will refer to himself as, ‘an unsavoury companion of dubious morals’. On the train, on the way to the Carmichael estate, he will say (as John) that he is, ‘an unprincipled drug addict’, that John convinced everyone is, ‘some kind of gentleman hero’. I think we can also see this depiction of himself as he introduces himself to John. Immediately after saying his name and address, half his face is dark, signalling that he may be a morally grey or morally ambiguous character. He puts on his deerstalker (his straight façade) and his face is entirely in darkness. This could be because in Sherlock’s own narrative he’s not an especially good person: he’s not a hero, he’s a person of bad morals whom probably no one should trust. This also works as a kind of Victorian gay-coding. Sherlock may be a great person but during this time, ‘shady morals’, easily equaled, ‘gay’, and this introduction also reinforces that.
Anyway, I feel like John looks tolerant but reticent and that Sherlock looks cautiously hopeful yet fears that his nature will turn John off. Both his nature as possibly not a good dude but also his nature as a gay dude.
Wait but where did they come from? Were you put on a homophobic harassment master post? Do they have those? Now I'm imagining a gay blog investigator who makes master posts of blogs in order of their gayness for ultimate homophobic efficiency.
Is it bad that if such a thing did exist I would ramp up the gay level of this blog for the sole achievement of making the top spot on their list? Like goddamn, that would be a proud moment.
“THIS ONE IS THE GAYEST! SMITE HER DOWN, MINIONS OF BIGOTRY!”
