The scene removed from A Study In Pink that I FUCKING WISH WAS STILL IN IT OMG
MOFFAT HOW COULD YOU WRITE THIS AND NOT INCLUDE IT OH GOD
God if this was Sherlock’s emotional state just before he met John I mean … damn. That explains a lot.
Sherlock was suicidal when he met John. John was suicidal when he met Sherlock.
They saved each other’s lives just by meeting.
If that’s not an epic love story, I don’t know what is.
I would have loved this scene so much, and yet it was so obvious and painful that argh. better read fic.
Fast-forward to Sherlock’s best man speech in TSOT: “It takes John Watson to save your life. Trust me on that – I should know. He’s saved mine so many times, and in so many ways.”
Oh, Jesus, I hadn’t even thought of the speech. Well now that is just eighty seven thousand times more heartbreaking.
“Today you sit between the woman you have made your wife and the man you have saved.”
