That is the face of a man who has to do this all the time.
and sometimes when it’s all just too much:
sherlock + red
COMPLETELY HETEROSEXUAL FRIENDSHIP
Whether you ship it or not, I think one has to concede that Sherlock and John surpass the bounds of ordinary friendship. I think they even surpass the title of “best friends.” I feel the same way about MY best friend. We’re not romantically entangled, but we’re insanely physical with eachother. We spoon for chrissakes. But we’re girrrrrls so it’s allowwwwwed. Which is bullshit. So it’s kind of nice to have platonic physicality represented between guys. Which does happen! Like ALL THE TIME! My heterosexual brother and his heterosexual best friend sleep in the same bed. Like… we have a guest room. But nope. They sleep in the same bed when he comes over. It’s fucking adorable.
Also, I’d like to say right now that I’m not trying to derail anyone’s ship (if you know me, you know that I ship Johnlock with the burning passion of a thousand suns) but I’d just like to take a second (and I’ve no idea why I’ve chosen THIS second…) to point out that this shit is fucking beautiful whether it’s platonic or romantic.
This shit is fucking beautiful whether it’s platonic or romantic.
