rugby lock

People talk about ballet!lock and rugby!John, as if the two were completely separate spheres. I’m sitting here thinking about John being sent to Sherlock’s ballet studio to work on his footwork during the offseason. Putting it in to practice at some point the next season, and Sherlock spotting the move and just burying his face in his hands as he blushes red as a turn-up.

John helping Sherlock as he weight-builds for tone so he can handle a certain difficult move, his rugby-captain’s hand on his hamstrings as he stretches it just so when he braces against the weight machine. Completely legitimate spotting, of course.

*coughs*

Jealous Sherlock rec list

I got an ask for this a while ago (possibly multiple, actually) but I can’t find any of them, apologies! There are less works tagged with “jealous Sherlock” but all of these have some element of jealousy in them. Here’s my rec list, enjoy!

The Edinburgh Problem by snorklepie: This is a brilliant case fic with fantastic original characters and a perfect slow burn romance (and, of course, a jealous Sherlock). Absolutely read this if you haven’t already.

Mary by kinklock: This is a fantastic pastiche fic based on “Rebecca” by Daphne du Maurier. Sherlock is very jealous of John’s previous wife. Such a good fic.

7 minutes by salambo06: Seven minutes in heaven! Wonderful teenlock fic; go read it!

The Doubtful Comforts of Human Love by PoppyAlexander: This is a beautifully done mature take on ballet!lock and rugby!John. A wonderful fic, my favorite of the genre.

All the Best and Brightest Creatures by wordstrings: This is a brilliant AU in which Sherlock sent Moriarty to prison as a child. So unbelievably fantastic.

Apprehension by causidicus: Sherlock realizes that John has been wanking to a photo of him, lots of smut.

Matters of National Security by mistyzeo: John begins dating a male client and Sherlock is very, very jealous.

imagine teen!john going to sherlock's house after a long rugby practice to do some homework, but sherlock can tell that john's exhausted so he tells him to just lie down on his bed and relax, and he makes john some tea and tucks him all snuggly into bed and sherlock sits with him and talks until john falls sound asleep uwu

Yesssssssssss, cute teenlock snuggles are exactly what I needed today!

"Wow, she really IS taller than you"

Hello Ladies! I’m 20 and 6'1".

All my life I dreamed of being swept off my feet by some Prince Charming who towers over me and makes me feel little. I guess film and media has drilled this idea into our brains that women are meant to be shorter than the man they fall in love with. Did you ever imagine that whole picking you up, spinning you around, dwarfing you thing? But why does this matter? Why must we conform to society’s expectations? Sorry…getting a little ‘Sociologist’ there :)

Anyway. I want you ladies to know that having a taller guy is not essential. Romance does not depend on height! In fact I have now been with my boyfriend (who is amazingly gorgeous and fun!) for over a year and he is only 5'8". He loves that I am tall, helps me choose clothes that best display my height and figure, and insists that I stand up straight. In fact, he is so proud of my height, he boasts about it, making sure everyone knows just how tall I am. It’s one of the first things he says when we meet people…“See how much taller she is than me? She’s 6'1”!“ 

Added to this he loves to talk about how he’s going to have massive Rugby player sons someday, Locks, specifically. 

So please don’t discount the shorter guys. They often have twice the personality and energy that the tall ones do. They can be a whole heap of fun, and hopelessly romantic. They can be strong, exciting and full of adventure. They can be super good-looking, powerful and gentle. Men aren’t objects or arm-candy, so look deeper than their height. You might find the treasure they are.

Rugby!John and Ballet!lock teaching each other moves from their sports of choice. John uses some of Sherlock's leaps to get through some tackled guys. Sherlock uses John's defensive moves to get rid of his bullies when John is not around.

Gaaaah!  Oh that’s wonderful, and this is all before they really get together, and they grow closer and closer as they teach each other, John’s hands lingering on Sherlock’s hips as he shows him a defensive stance or Sherlock’s hands lingering on John’s shoulders as he makes him stand up straight, and there’s so much blushing and giggling and maybe a few stray tickles here and there *heart eyes*

Talk to me about balletlock!
