There are literally only two explanations for the soul crushing, burning, sensual, “I love you so much it’s killing me and also I want to fuck you through a wall” looks exchanged between John and Sherlock. Only two.
One, tjlc is real and Martin and Ben are brilliant, nuanced, award winning actors who know exactly what they’re doing and are fully aware of how their characters feel about each other.
Two, Ben and Martin are desperately in love with each other and are terrible actors who can’t keep their personal feelings off screen.
Now which one seems more likely? And don’t anyone reblog this with “Both. Both is good.” Don’t you dare.
