Applying the phone = heart metaphor from ASiB to this scene was a mistake
Now instead of sneaky nipple teasing all I can think about is John reaching inside Sherlock and taking hold of his heart while Sherlock tells him to “be careful” because it’s a fragile little thing and he can’t handle it getting broken:(
who gave you the right
… proof that Sherlock’s heart was taken in Series One. I think it’s interesting that we never actually see him giving back this phone in particular. Can this be paralleled with Irene’s phone? Is there a write up i can read? THESE ARE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS. Sherlock’s vulnerability is a weakness of mine.
Too lazy to write a full-blown meta, but this delicious lingering shot happened after Sherlock realized that love is destructive and it’s better to keep his growing feelings towards John locked up instead
"Can I have
my heart backthe phone, John, please?”
Oh! I like that, as terribly sad as it is! OH. OH MY GOSH. I just had a thought. Sherlock throws away his phone on the rooftop in TRF, and we don’t know if the one Sherlock has in S3 is the same one (we just assume, but we never saw it given back to him… as an aside, I am STILL ANNOYED that we don’t know what came of that phone! Seems like a huge plot point to leave out!!). So, he had to throw away his heart to complete the mission… I think the next time we see the phone passed to Sherlock, going on this “heart is the phone’ metaphor, it will be John giving his own
heartphone to Sherlock.
THIS MEANS THAT MORIARTY SENT HIS HEART TO SHERLOCK TO LURE HIM IN IN TGG
AND THAT JOHN WANTED HIM TO TAKE HIS HEART BACK FROM MARY IN TSOT
"BEFORE SHE COMES BACK" "FOR ME"
NOT TO MENTION THE SET UP OF THIS SCENE LOOKS LIKE JOHN IS LITERALLY REACHING INTO SHERLOCK’S CHEST YOU CAN’T EVEN SEE HIS ELBOW JESUS
AND SHERLOCK ALL BLINKY-LIKE WHEN HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND (that john wants to love him) LIKE WHEN HE WAS ASKED TO BE BEST MAN
"DON’T WORRY I’LL GET YOU OUT OF THIS (marriage)"
AND THAT THE VERY FIRST THING JOHN DID UPON MEETING SHERLOCK FOR THE FIRST TIME WAS LITERALLY AND WILLINGLY GAVE UP HIS HEART TO HIM.
THIS IS LESS THAN 10 MINUTES INTO THE EPISODE, NOT 15 SECONDS AFTER HE WALKS INTO THE ROOM.
If we’re still running with this metaphor, technically john have sherlock his heart in the very beginning. Literally, his first lines to sherlock were “here, use (take) mine (my heart)”
I’ve put these two together because you both hit the nail on the head! OMG, this post keeps getting better. I don’t want to hijack this post, so I’m gonna leave it at this :) I’ll start a new post if there’s anything else added :)
This post broke my metaphorical phone.
