Doing Victoria Ying’s supercool color challenge, ‘cause I gotta do some personal art in between all this client work or I’ll go crazy!
gETTING HUGGED BY PEOPLE WHO ARE PHYSICALLY TALLER AND BIGGER THAN YOU IS AMAZING
ITS LIKE BEING WRAPPED IN A BIG WARM PROTECTIVE HEAT BLANKET AND ITS WONDERFUL
HUGGING PEOPLE THAT ARE LITTLER THAN YOU IS GREAT TOO LIKE THEY FIT PERFECTLY IN YOUR ARMS AND THEY’RE LITTLE AND ADORABLE AND REMINISCENT OF HUGGING A SMALL ANIMAL
JUST HUGGING PERIOD
It later transpired that I had said none of this out loud.
I would just like to say that this is especially important because this is a wonderful wonderful peek into how Sherlock actually thinks. Not in the way that we usually get - but in the way that we can’t see, because he never says it. That’s the key here. In all of those moments where Sherlock simply doesn’t respond or is silent and just seems like he’s being an ass (which undoubtedly, sometimes, he is), he’s actually thinking a thousand things at a million miles a minute and just can’t or doesn’t know how to say them correctly. Or, mayhaps, he doesn’t think expending the effort is worth it (in some cases). Either way.
