I was re-watching ‘The Sign of Three’ and towards the end Sherlock mentions something about tutoring John how to dance. Waltz, if I’m correct.
And then, John said this:
John. Sherlock. Dancing together
I don’t know how either
(Was he joking or did they really dance?)
My heart is torn apart.
Sherlock vulnerable, suffering, human.
Hiding his deep emotions.
Realizing John is everything he has.
And John, just moving on.
Ignoring Sherlock’s loneliness.
This episode is so heart-breaking. First Sherlock dances, he worries about a speech, he abandones cases to prepare the wedding, John declares Sherlock is his best friend, they realize this wedding is an important step in their relationship, Sherlock pronounces the most beautiful speech ever, he resolves a case, he plays violin for John & Mary, he tells them he’ll always be there for them, he deduces they’ll have a child, he tells them they’ll be the best parents ever and just leaves the wedding alone in the night because there’s nobody to dance with him.
And this is just the second episode. The third will kill me.
I want to die now.
