Another thing that gives me heartburn when I think about it:

-Sherlock’s eyes going softly closed and all the tension draining out of his shoulders, leaning down into it, when John kisses him for the first time.

with regards to bbc sherlock no longer being shown on public television in poland:

if i remember correctly, all of sherlock up until tab was aired, in addition to the bbc worldwide channel, on one of the main public tv channels in poland, which are not technically controlled by the government (essentially a polish equivalent of the bbc)

in between the airing of s3 and tab, poland underwent an election, with a right-wing party seizing control in the country. this party, prawo i sprawiedliwość (law and justice, lmao), has become increasingly more involved in the programming and has been firing people who were involved with public television and radio for DECADES and installing their own people in their place to monitor their own image in the media and to maintain tight control over the content shown 

this party, in addition to its many other sins, is INCREDIBLY VITRIOLIC TOWARDS THE LGBTIQ COMMUNITY, having publicly condemned everything from same-sex relationships and adoption to trans people as ‘homosexual propaganda’, and getting the catholic church heavily involved in their politics

so, before the government changed and started getting heavily involved with the programming, we got all of s3 with its fake sheri/arty kiss and the aborted love confession on the tarmac shown on a public channel, where literally anyone could watch it; however, since the government change and their involvement in the programming, sherlock mysteriously disappeared from the public channel and s4 will only be shown on a channel called bbc brit, which can only be accessed if you have one of those paid tv packages

so, why the change? surely if there was nothing that pushed the ‘homosexual propaganda’ within the show, they would’ve kept it on the public channel? if the show was good, pure, heterosexual fun, surely they wouldn’t have gotten rid of it since it was bringing in so many viewers?

i’ll leave you to your deductions, but the answer is pretty obvious to me.

Just imagine John kissing Sherlock for the first time and Sherlock hesitating for a moment with his eyes open and then, as John reaches his fingers into his hair, he slowly lets his lips move and his eyes close. When John finally pulls away, fingers still in Sherlock’s curls, Sherlock can’t open his eyes, he never wants to let go of the feeling of John’s lips on his own. After a few moments of John softly massaging Sherlock’s scalp in the silence, he whispers quietly “Open your eyes.” And when Sherlock does, he is staring into the eyes of the bravest, wisest and most beautiful man he has ever known.
