His Favorite Things (JohnLock)

John starts to notice that Sherlock knows more about him than he seems to remember about anyone else. It’s about time he said something about it. 

Word Count: 552

Warnings: None

A/N: To @colourfulwatson​ for sparking this idea.

John knew he wasn’t as sharp witted as Sherlock, and maybe he had only been reading more into it than was actually there for his own selfish purposes or what have you, but he’d noticed it more and more lately. When they were bored at the flat, when they went out to have a bit of lunch, even when they’d been on cases. Sherlock just said these little things, things that stuck with John for days afterward. It was all very unlike the Sherlock he’d come to know. While he was all facts and crucial information, these comments touched deeper than that. They were personal. 

They weren’t about himself. He never talked about himself. Whatever John knew about Sherlock, he’d learned over time, organically and mostly by observation. His fondness for completely insane scientific experiments, his talent for the violin, his drug habit. Occasionally, John would ask Sherlock something about himself, but he usually got a short, even slightly annoyed answer, like he’d rather talk about anything else. So, while the comments Sherlock made weren’t about himself, John could still tell they were personal to him. They came from a different place in his memory palace. 

Of course, John hadn’t brought this up to Sherlock. He’d only be dismissed, or perhaps even just ignored. Not out of rudeness, of course, it’s just that Sherlock had plenty of other things on his mind all the time. These things he’d let slip every once in a while probably weren’t even on his radar. Then again, John thought to himself, if he could catch him in a moment of boredom, perhaps he could broach the subject. 

On a drizzly spring afternoon, he was able to do just that. “Sherlock,” John had said, and Sherlock’s eyes locked right onto his, glad to have something to focus on. 

“Yes, John,” Sherlock replied, waiting for him to continue. 

“I know you don’t care to remember the small details about people, like when Lestrade asked you to recall his favorite color, or when you couldn’t bring to mind Molly’s favorite magazine the other day, but just this morning you remembered how I take my tea and last week you played my favorite song on your violin. I guess what I’m asking is, if you don’t find all that important, then why do you remember all of the little things about me?“ 

For a moment, Sherlock was utterly silent. John almost felt like he’d overstepped somehow, and wished he could take the question back. But it was out now, and Sherlock of all people wouldn’t simply forget he’d asked. “Sherlock,” John prompted tentatively. He’d finally asked the question, and now he wanted an answer to satisfy his curiosity. 

“Right. You’re different, John. Different than everyone else I know, or have known. You have your own place in my memories." 

"Your memories? Not your memory palace?" 

"No. I don’t have to find your favorite color in my mind, I just know it. It’s the same with a lot of other things about you. You’re important to me." 

John smiled. To be important to Sherlock was quite a feat. Sherlock cared for him in a way he didn’t for anyone else. John didn’t quite know what that meant exactly, but perhaps just being special to Sherlock would become his new favorite thing.

I’m in way too deep.

He continues to talk to John when he is not there. Crashes John’s date with Sarah  Watches John walking to Sarah’s sadly from the window Thinks about John when talking about love- “I imagine John Watson thinks love is a mystery to me” Tells Irene not to compliment him, because John has already said every variant in the English language. Fakes his death, and spends years dismantling Moriarty’s network to ensure John is safe. Pulls John out of a bonfire, with no hesitation or concern for burning his hands Quickly hurries his parents out of the flat because he doesn’t want them to embarrass him in front of John Has a whole folder about John, and one of the pages is John’s face stuck onto a picture of the vitruvian man He is obsessed with finding out John’s middle name because he needs to know everything about him  Stops functioning when John tells him he is his best friend Is jealous of John’s ex-commander Major Sholto Tells a room full of people that John is the only thing he cares about- “There was one feature and only one feature of interest in this whole baffling case and quite frankly, it was the usual: John Watson”   “It’s always you, John Watson you keep me right!” Refers to the wedding as going “into battle” Yet still helped teach John how to dance, and writes the song for John and Mary’s first dance. Makes his first and final vow at the wedding to always be there for John and Mary. But leaves the wedding early because he can’t pretend to be happy for John any longer He turns to drugs to cope with the fact John got married Removes John’s chair because looking at it or seeing someone else sitting in it is too painful Fights to come back to life at the realisation that John is in danger Kills a man to ensure John is safe Rather than confess to John how he feels, he decides to tell a joke instead “Sherlock is actually a girl’s name”, to make John laugh one last time. On the plane Sherlock reads about his and John’s first meeting, this is what he wants to think about as he dies from the overdose. He creates an elaborate Victorian world in his mind were John and Mary’s marriage is falling apart because John has abandoned her for “a companion of dubious morals” (him) and the only way she can see John is by pretending to be a client. He imagines John saving him from Moriarty and declaring there is “always two of them”. 

Oh and he looks at John like this:

imageimageimage

That’s the face of a man in love. John is Sherlock’s whole world, the one who makes him happy, the one he pines for and is miserable and depressed without. The one he will sacrifice himself for again and again because he will always put John’s safety and happiness before his own. 

Feelings!! 😭
