((reached 19k followers while I was on hiatus! Thank you all so much!! ;o;
I’m not gonna do an event for this milestone, but I will at 20K! But seriously, this is absolutely insane and amazing!! <3
In the meanwhile…
Suggest Halloween costumes for Peri by submitting, messaging, or replying on this post! (Please don’t send me a suggestion on asks. I just want to keep actually asks separate from this!) Have a great rest of the week! Peri mod out))
So today I reached 2k followers! I honestly find that insane. I’ve been on here for a bit more than a year, and my blog has changed a lot since I first started it, but in the past few months it’s started growing a lot and it’s absolutely insane.
Seriously, thank you all so much, I love each and every one of you. I can’t wait to see where this account goes in the future. :)
Mycroft flat out tells us in ASIB that Sherlock is a virgin (“Sex doesn’t alarm me.” “How would you know?”). It’s highly unlikely that Mycroft wouldn’t know whether or not his brother has ever had sex, given the kind of tabs he keeps on him, not to mention his own considerable deductive abilities. And basically that entire episode was about how, when it comes to sex and romance, Sherlock is inexperienced and out of his element, which is why Irene was almost able to beat him. So we know he’s never had sex before this episode, at least.
Sherlock has definitely never had sex with a WOMAN. That was made clear by the fact that he and Janine did not have sex in HLV. It was incredibly risky for Sherlock to avoid having sex with Janine for as long as he did; the plan would have been much better served if he had just had sex with her, even just once. He was already lying and manipulating her anyway, so why wouldn’t he have had sex with her, especially since she was established as a very sexual person in TSoT? They were already pretty physically intimate, what with the shower thing and the cuddling on the armchair and kissing. Sherlock was actively avoiding having sex with her. Why?
I think that also proves he never had sex with Irene, either. Sherlock just has no sexual interest in women, at all. And it would be odd if he HAD had sex with her and the show just never mentioned it, after an entire episode of what a relatively clueless virgin Sherlock is.
Sherlock didn’t even figure out his own sexuality until John’s wedding. If you haven’t read loudest-subtext-in-television’s meta about all the subtext in that episode, I suggest you do. (here’s a more specific entry). The whole episode was Sherlock discovering his feelings for John, and one of the reasons he hadn’t figured it out before this is because he’s been repressing his own desires and sexuality for YEARS, both in order to better serve The Work and also because the dude is a fragile teacup who had been unable to handle having emotions.
And the sexuality he figured out? It was alluded to all episode — GAY GAY GAY. There’s so much fucking gay sex imagery in this episode it’s absolutely insane. Seriously, go read LSiT’s meta. IT’LL CHANGE UR LIFE
So, since Sherlock is gay, we found out in ASiB that he was a virgin, and there was no point in between ASiB and HLV where it would make any sort of sense that he’d had sex with a dude…
Big gay baby virgin, as some people say.
I mean, feel free to disagree if you like, but to me, Sherlock NOT being a virgin makes absolutely no sense at all. It’s possible I’m wrong, but… it’s not likely.
