Johnlock and the million-dollar question

The fact is, I hesitate to say anything. That’s where I am. I’m not ready to really engage with fandom the way it is now, or possibly ever.

To the degree that I’m still kinda interested in rambling for its own sake, I’ll be putting everything to do with Sherlock meta under cut for the foreseeable future, with the warning that I’m not negative about TFP, I still believe in Johnlock, and so I have things to say because things are starting to maybe make sense. So. Take care of yourselves out there. I’ll be here in my little corner, okay.

Everyone loves percentages, right? Right.

Just putting some quotes into context.

“I hate you,” Andrew said, but it was hard to believe him when he sounded so bored by the concept. […] “Ninety percent of the time the very sight of you makes me want to commit murder. I think about carving the skin from your body and hanging it out as a warning to every other fool who thinks he can stand in my way.”

“What about the other ten?” Neil asked.

- The King’s Men, Nora Sakavic, chapter 7

“The other 10% of the time, Neil is still important enough to keep around, and Andrew will deal with his idiocy as long as he has to.“

Neil was sure he was stepping forward into a knife for bringing Proust up again, but he obediently closed the short space between them. […]

“This is not revenge,” Andrew said. “I warned him what I would do to him if he touched me. This is me keeping my word.”

[…] The next time he raised his cigarette to his mouth Neil took it from him. Neil broke it between his fingers and let it fall to the asphalt by their feet. Andrew watched the halves roll away from each other and turned an unimpressed look on Neil.

“Ninety-one percent,” Andrew said.

-TKM ch. 7

“9% of the time he thinks killing Neil might be the one thing he can’t come back from, the one thing it might hurt to lose.“

Neil opened his mouth, closed it, and tried again. “The next time one of them says you’re soulless I might have to fight them.”

“Ninety-two percent,” Andrew said, “going on ninety-three.”

-TKM, chapter 9

“7~8% of the time it feels like falling, and to a man afraid of heights it is a terrible and frightening sensation.“
