Previous 221b: Piece of cake

Today's prompt: flower


Pitch the woo

“What are we doing here?”

John looked at the chess player and followed the line of the exposed muscles with his gaze.

“Don’t you like it?”

“I do. I really do. It’s very interesting and educational. But I don’t understand. Is this research? Do we have a new case?”

“No. Keep up, John. It’s flowers.”

“Excuse me?”

“It’s my equivalent of flowers.”

“I see. No, I don’t. You lost me. Flowers?”

“You said you didn’t want flowers, because flowers are not me. You said I should woo you with something else.”

“So this is your way of wooing me?”

“Not good?”

“No, it’s good. It’s perfect.”

They were standing in the middle of plastinated dead bodies of ‘Körperwelten’ and John thought that this was really the most perfect thing Sherlock could’ve come up with. He looked up to his lover with a grin.

“I’d really like to kiss you right now, but I think that might be inappropriate.”

“We can always come back another time.”

“Sherlock Holmes, did you really just agree to leave a place that has countless dead bodies just so that I can kiss you?”

“I know all about dead bodies. I don’t know all about your body yet.”

“So you prefer kissing over dead people?”

“Kissing? No. Kissing you? Yes. And everything else that involves your body.”

Next 221b: Listen closely

The prompt was 'flower'.
This is sort of a sequel to The Woes of Wooing.

'Körperwelten' is an exhibition of plastinated dead bodies. Not my kind of thing, but I thought Sherlock and John might like it. What do you think?

And with this I'm leaving you again. Off until next Thursday (London and other stuff). Take care! :)

It would definitely be a way Sherlock would woo. And I adore this:

“I know all about dead bodies. I don’t know all about your body yet.”

That is a perfect, perfect pair of sentences and that is Sherlock wooing, right there.

*shudders* I HATE Körperwelten, but yeah, I can see how they would like it. Still, now I have the images in my head. Noooo!

Oh, melt. That is just adorable. I love the way Sherlock finds his own version of giving flowers.

Plastination is certainly interesting and educational and definitely not my cup of tea. But in this fic it's... weirdly romantic. It's romanticism à la Sherlock. And the end is very sweet. I'd prefer flowers or chocolate, though. :D
