Apparently it’s against the law to chin the Chief Superintendent.
that 3rd gif tho
did your life flash before your eyes?
Poor John just looks insulted in the background for the rest of this scene.
#Do you guys see the way that Sherlock’s face just falls? #You can literally see how his heart is just shattered inside of his chest #because he thought that he finally had a friend #and he had never had one before so sebastian just didn’t expect it to be true #and you can see his face in the first gif he’s proud to introduce john as his friend because john’s the only friend he’s ever had #and when john says colleague you see him look down because he feels like he’s failed #he feels like John doesn’t think Sherlock’s good enough to be friends with and that he doesn’t want to be seen as his friend in front of other people #and it just breaks my heart
#And then you see John’s awkwardness #he doesn’t want to be known as Sherlock’s friend because ‘friend’ makes people assume other things #And he his not Sherlock’s date! #But John hates saying he’s not Sherlock’s friend because he knows it hurts Sherlock. #Even at this early stage, he knows and cares. #Really though, John’s just scared. #He can feel himself trusting Sherlock and that terrifies him. #That means he pushed Sherlock away.
