John’s Blog - Johnlock Minimeta in the Doctor’s Own Words


"I definitely think he might be mad but he was also strangely likeable. He was charming." [x]

He’s fascinating. Arrogant, imperious, pompous. […] But, he knows a couple of nice restaurants so he’s not all bad.” [x]

In so many ways, he’s the cleverest person I’ve ever met but there are these blank spots that are almost terrifying. At least I’ve got used to him now.

It was extraordinary. I’d try to explain it here but I don’t think I’d be able to do him justice.

It was the most ridiculous night of my life - I mean, an actual chase through London. People don’t do that, not really. But we did.  And, of course, by doing this, Sherlock proved my limp was psychosomatic. Did I mention he’s clever?” [x]

"I can’t deny that I prefer this kind of life. Being a civilian doesn’t suit me. But the thing is, this life we’ve chosen isn’t safe. Sherlock chooses to be this crusading consulting detective and I choose to be his colleague." [x]

"I could see the look in Sherlock’s eyes - a flash of, not anger, but hurt. For a second, he looked like a little, lost child. I should have been horrified that he’d even doubt me for a second but, to be honest, it was so refreshingly human of him. He actually did value our friendship. He did, despite himself, care." [x]

"Not sure my life with Sherlock is compatible with long-term relationships." [x]

I’d taken Sherlock out Christmas shopping which, looking back, wasn’t the best of ideas." [x]

Sherlock was his usual tetchy self, managing to make Christmas all about him but I can’t bring myself to complain about him too much. Not after the death.

Irene Adler. She’s gone and he won’t dare admit it but he’s devastated. He can’t show it and I don’t think he understands what he’s feeling. Sometimes he’s so cut off from everything, so cold, so lacking in emotion that when he does feel something… well I think it’s the one thing on this planet he’ll never quite get.” [x]

Of course, he isn’t fine with it, not really. But he’ll get there." [x]

Sherlock had been bored. And trust me, you don’t want to be around him when he’s bored.  […] I’ve never seen him so shaken, so scared. He was actually terrified.  […]  And then Sherlock did one of the most human things I think I’ve ever seen him do - he made Henry look at the dog’s body. He didn’t need to, he’d solved the case but it was as if he knew that the truly important thing was showing Henry what was real and what wasn’t. Maybe the fear and doubt he’d felt, and maybe his experiences with Irene Adler, had humanised him?" [x]

He was my best friend and I’ll always believe in him." [x]

"We did good and we had fun. And that’s what I’m going to remember. My best friend, and he’d kill me for saying that’s what he was, is dead. Sherlock Holmes is dead. But, by God, he’ll never be forgotten.” [x]

"People did laugh when Sherlock told them I enjoyed having baths but I was fine with it. I’m still fine with it." [x]

He had an odd sort of justice. For all that he claimed to be cold and uncaring, he had his own sense of right and wrong." [x]

So, Greg came around the other day. He had a load of stuff that had belonged to Sherlock. Just tat really. Nothing that even gets close to showing who or what he was. Stuff can’t do that. Not physical stuff anyway. […] He wasn’t busy, he just… sometimes he struggled to fit in. He couldn’t switch off, couldn’t relax. He just struggled with people, I think. Yet the video… it showed the other side to him. He was rude, yeah. Arrogant. Apparently lacking in anything resembling empathy. But I’d forgotten just how funny he could be. He was so charming. So… human. It’s bizarre because most people would say he was the most inhuman person they’d ever met. But he wasn’t. He was everything a good person should be.  […] Sherlock, you bastard, wherever you are. Cheers.” [x]

And I went to say thanks and… I was hooked. He’s like a drug. He told me about the terrorist plot and I was hooked. I had to help him. […] So, yes. It’s all good. Better than good. It’s bloody brilliant. #sherlocklives means #johnwatsonlives." [x]
