sherlock being cute

things sherlock holmes has canonically done:

  • scrapbooked the hell out of his newspapers
  • put on a hat that was too big for him 
  • giggled
  • cried because lestrade was nice to him
  • got all sappy and romantic by smelling a rose
  • let a puppy lead him on adventures
  • “impish mood”
  • lit his pipe with an ember from the fireplace because he thought it looked cool

feel free to add to this


As ever, Watson, you see but do not observe. To you, the world remains an impenetrable mystery, whereas, to me, it is an open book. Hard logic versus romantic whimsy - that is your choice. You fail to connect actions to their consequences.

Imagine Sherlock just giving you this pettish look everytime he meets you, because it frustrates him that he’s not able to read you.
“Bring her out, John”
“Sherlock, I can’t just send her away, this is a public place so-”
“Bring the witch out of here!”

Probably other things I can’t think about right now…


Sherlock taking selfies with both the intended victim and the guilty party at John’s next wedding, of course, the suspect was apprehended and confessed long before anyone was in serious danger.

Sherlock responding “Mh? Yes of course I do, and he does as well, please get on with this quick as you can as I’d very much like to be married now if you would be so kind…” Before leaning down impatiently yet extremely happily to kiss his husband, who was busy trying to supress his laughter.

Harry coming around as a way to make amends with her brother, although first marching up to Sherlock, looking at him for a long time, puzzled. “John…he’s Clever Cheekbones isn’t he?” “Er- Hello Harry….Yes, this is Sherlock.” John pointedly avoiding his husband’s smug expression. “But you’ve been in love with him for ages! Practically since you bloody met him, and you’re only just getting married now??” A soft noise coming from the back of Sherlock’s throat and he holds onto John’s hand just a little bit tighter. Harry just grinning knowingly, wishing them the best, then sauntering off to find herself something to drink.

Mike standing up, looking at Sherlock and John, stating proudly “I knew you two would hit it off.” And sitting back down looking incredibly pleased with himself.

Sherlock dipping John during their dance because he’s tall and because he can and John getting red and trying to sound cross but he can’t stop smiling and laughing.

Sherlock referring to their honeymoon as their Sex Holiday to anyone and everyone he meets regardless of how many times John scolds him for it.

Sherlock and John quarrelling on the comments of John’s blog while sitting right next to each other.

Sherlock finding every opportunity to slip the fact that he’s married to John into any conversation he has with anyone for months, even when on cases. John originally thinking it was him showing off but immediately noticed the sparkle in his eyes and the tone of his voice and realizing that if Sherlock could never imagine himself having a best friend, what must it feel like to be married.

John finding every opportunity to inform anyone he converses with that he’s married to Sherlock, purely to see the expression on Sherlock’s face.

Someone referring to Sherlock as a “freak” in John’s presence, John stepping forward into his face and hissing. “I’ve got a mind to punch you and an especially sharp ring on my finger, I’d think it be in your best interest to be a little more polite to my husband before it turns out you have to go to the dentist to get replacements for the teeth I’ve knocked out of your mouth.” John smiling one of those ‘I-could-murder-you-in-your-sleep-and-they-would-never-catch-me’ smiles before stating loudly that the only one who could call Sherlock a freak was him, and that was specifically in bed. Before marching away, pulling an impressed, incredulated, and speechless Sherlock after him.

Sherlock and John saying married with such reverence from the day they were engaged till the day they die.

Sherlock getting really nervous after their first fight as husbands that they might break up, John finding out and comforting him continuously, promising he still loves him and forever will, declaring a rule that they must always end a row with a kiss, even if they still firmly disagree with each other.
John and Sherlock sticking to that rule.

Sherlock and John generally being cute newlyweds.

How about Sherlock and Jim kissing as snow starts falling slowly around them and when it melts in Sherlock’s hair, making his curls all heavy and messy, Jim can’t even kiss him anymore, he just stares like it’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen.

And the snow sticks to Jim’s eyelashes making his eyes seem even deeper and darker; Sherlock isn’t even conscious that he lifts his hand to touch. Jim closes his eyes and lets him brush away the snow, and as their lips meet again people pass them on the street without caring or noticing; it’s a moment of perfect bliss suspended in time.
