Previous 221b: My chemical romance


Today's prompt: candle

________________________________________________


A couple of misconceptions


They don’t look like a couple to most people.

They rarely walk hand in hand and even less frequently arm in arm and despite their first kiss being overly public they are both not too fond of obvious depictions of affection.

You see it if you look closer, of course. The little touches, the shared looks, the shared smiles, how familiar they are with each other.

Still, when they go out, most people see two friends or colleagues going out. The only place they always get a candle is Angelo’s.

Neither of them minds, they are both not the romantic type. Or at least not in the conventional way.

They also don’t really care about their birthdays, the only day they celebrate is their anniversary (both their anniversaries in fact, the one of the day they met and the one of the day John proposed, because Sherlock always insists that they are equally important).

They do love giving each other presents, but since it is more fun to do it unexpectedly, there are seldom presents on days you would expect them (special occasions like Christmas for example). And obviously most of these unexpected presents would be deemed strange by everyone else were they publicly known: A lesson in cleaning a gun, a blowjob in the morgue, a rare string of bacteria.

It's good to read you again! :-)

This is how I'd see them as a couple, yes.

You see it if you look closer, of course.
We do. ;-) And we see a lovely fic, with so much tenderness implied. And your title is clever.

P.S. A lesson in cleaning a gun, a blowjob in the morgue, a rare string of bacteria.
I'd like to read a 221B about one of these three unexpected presents but I won't tell you which. I’ll leave you to your deductions. :D

Choco! *squishy hugs*

Oh course you'd be the one to ask for a detailed story about the rare string of bacteria. Typical! *sighs*

I'm glad to see you know me so well. I already know how to clean a gun anyway.

This conversation is so very clearly between two writers that it's made even more funny....

Sorry, I didn't intend to be offending!!!

No no, I'm not offended at all! By "not really" I meant that I don't really know how to clean a gun. Or, to be more precise, I have absolutely no idea of how to clean a gun. :D

Oh, I see :D

The wee bit that I fixate on — being as I *do* see them as overtly demonstrative to a degree — is that candle on Angelo's table. I do like that somewhere, somewhere in Anarion canon they are a wee bit obvious.

This is lovely, gentle, and the title is indeed very clever!

Awww... such sweetness in this one; I love it!

I don't see them as being over-keen on PDA either (although it can certainly be fun to contemplate it!) Very nice characterisation here :D

I think you captured very well, how they'd act as a pouple, I just can't see them cuddle on the street XD
