They collapse onto Jo’s mattress, panting and sweating. Gale lies on his back, arms behind his head, feeling relaxed. After a stressful couple of days at work, an energetic tumble with Jo is just what Gale needed. Beside him, Jo is already drifting to sleep. “You can stay if you want,” she says.
He glances at the clock; it’s almost midnight and he doesn’t particularly feel like getting dressed and taking the subway back to his place. He’s relaxed and ready to sleep now. “Thanks.” He pushes himself off the bed and goes into the bathroom to dispose of the condom.
When he comes back, Jo has rolled onto her side, her back to him. “Can you get me a glass of water?” she mumbles.
Gale grabs his boxer briefs and pulls them on before padding gently down the hallway past Katniss’ room. Not Katniss’ room anymore, he has to remind himself, Madge’s room. The door is ajar and he wonders where she is.
Fine fine, let’s say he caught her in a spur-of-the-moment thing but he didn’t have to hold her for so long. Sasuke could have let Sakura sit or something but he chose to support her. And I think that is actually pretty important.
i wonder in the second panel of sasuke holding sakura,where sakura is clearly leaning onto him. was it sakura who ended up leaning onto him out of exhaustion or did sasuke himself push her closer to his body? what do you think? ;)
Well even if she fell into him, logically if you are holding someone you would lean into them and make sure they are secure. This makes even more sense to me since she was weak and trembling i.e. in need of someone’s support.
The eyelock also tells us that sasuke was willingly involved in this scene. He thanked her and looked into her eyes. This shows me that this was a sasuke —> sakura moment. Not a sakura falling on him moment.
Also look at his fingers gripping onto her arms. It shows that he initiated contact and he was holding her, not propping her.
NOTICE THE GRIP
NOTICE HOW HIS BODY IS CUPPING HERS ; SHE IS SURROUNDED BY HIM NOT LEANING ON HIM. (I am not being fluffy and emotional and saying this is him being in love, just trying to describe the action accurately)
So yes she fell into him but he also pushed himself closer to hold her.
something occurred to me: You were always talking about how in S3 John cant look at Sherlock when confronting emotions, how does this fit in context of the yellow spray paint scene from TBB S1, I realize it is not everyone's favorite episode, but at this point john doesn't know Sher very well. As an aside, I was ready to believe that they both knew they loved each other at the end of S1, and the fact they haven't spoken about it is just the producer's meddling uselessly.
You mean the spinning scene?
So yeah, they’re eyelocked in that scene for sure. But when I talk about John being unable to look at Sherlock, it’s only when Sherlock’s real feelings for John are visible. Woobie Sherlock = John can’t look.
But when Sherlock’s being a sociopath or a dick or just basically acting the way John expects him to, John can look. Even if he’s disappointed that Sherlock’s being a “machine,” he can look at him because it’s what he expects. John’s paradox is that he wants Woobie Sherlock but can’t bring himself to face it when it does happen because it means facing his own, er, inner-Woobie…and he’s saddened by machine Sherlock but he can deal with it because it allows him to keep his own emotions suppressed.
In the spraypaint scene, Sherlock’s totally focused on the case. He’s spinning John around (hey, the guy loves to dance!) and trying to get John to remember what he saw. John makes eye contact easily because this is Sherlock in familiar deductive Sherlock mode.
