I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, Kiss me harder, and You’re a good person, and, You brighten my day. I live my life as straight-forward as possible.
Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.
Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.
But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.
And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.
We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.
We never know when the bus is coming.
What’s with John’s earpiece?
What do you make of the earpiece that was in John’s ear as he was talking to Sherlock (which can be seen when he pulls the phone away and shouts at Sherlock)? And the earpiece that was later knocked out of his ear and onto the floor when he was knocked over? Could it have anything to do with that ringing sound?
Four people have asked about this post in the last few minutes, so this answer is for all of you.
First thing to note is that John doesn’t have anything in his ear when he’s taking the cab back to St. Bart’s. Sherlock’s tricky and all… But if the earpiece has to do with the fake death, when do you think he managed to pull that off without John noticing?
