#Third panel #We can pinpoint the exact moment Sherlock fell in love with John #How did I deduce that I hear you say… #His eyes are positively shimmering #The smile, maybe uncharacteristic but John’s one of the few people that make it happen #The tiny swallowing, like trying to get rid of the feelings that just clogged up his neck #DEDUKSHIONS
and how he collects himself enough to offer up his card to John. Putting the phrase “what’s mine is yours” into action, despite the fact that this is, Sherlock. Since when did Sherlock willingly allow another human being to share his possessions? His home, his work, his life. The answer is simple—John. You can live in my space, my domain, I will share my thoughts with you and allow you to tag along for the one thing that keeps me alive—-my work.
He is letting someone take part in his life (something the famous Sherlock Holmes would have never allowed to happen) in exchange for what? For a companion. Someone to share their life with him in return. To me, this sounds like a relationship. And that is something Sherlock would have never deduced would happen to him. You can see the smile on his face, he knows he shouldn’t have been lucky enough to have a companion like John. But he is.
