Hey Steph I just noticed that in Tsot john pulls out his own phone, unlocks it, and says "pick one.. your inbox is bursting." How does he have access to Sherlock's account from his phone? Do they have a joint account? Unless that was Sherlock's phone in which case he knows the password and uses it regularly to know the inbox is full? Either scenario is very couplish
*snorts* For the same reason he knows Sherlock’s PIN number for Sherlock’s bank account: BECAUSE THEY ARE A COUPLE, no matter how much John tries to bloody deny it.
Though to be fair, I think it’s also because Sherlock can’t be arsed to take care of his own blog affairs; he doesn’t seem interested in taking cases without John, and then in TSo3, he redirects all his energy to wedding planning, because he just wants to make John happy and needs it to be perfect (that and I like to think that he was pretending to plan his and John’s wedding :D, though I think in a petty way, he purposely made it look… “clashy”?)
The funny thing about John is that I don’t think he consciously REALIZES that what he’s doing is literally a really “he’s mine” sort of thing to do. I think he just easily went back into his PA role for Sherlock and didn’t give it a second thought.
I like to headcanon that ever since the Sherlock returned, he allowed John unhindered access to all his emails and blogs so that John wouldn’t worry that Sherlock was “planning something behind his back” (of course, Sherlock is able to anyway, but I think it’s Sherlock’s way of trying to rebuild John’s trust in him).
Either that or John has gotten better at cracking passwords, LOL.
But seriously though, yes, it is a really coupley thing to do. And I do think that it is on John’s own phone that he’s doing this… The fact that he picked a case with military appeal to it kind of screams to me that John KNOWS Sherlock has some sort of military kink :D JUST SAYING….
