#I’ve just noticed #Sherlock’s little tremble #the gun shakes in his hand #nononojohnwhatareyoudoing #and that look #the fucking look of fear #his whole face softened #he’s panicking again #ugh i just keep watching it #can we not #asdfghjkjhgfdsasdfghjhgfdsa
That last 3 frames before the loop. HOLY FUCK.
Do you SEE how young and utterly unprepared for this he is?
This is the boy Mrs Hudson sees, the teen Mycroft can’t help but be frustrated by, and the man inside the machine John would die to protect.
Because Sherlock, in his way, is so very vulnerable, even if he never sees it. Or more, chooses to hide this vulnerability even from himself.
So very unprepared to deal with his own humanity.
His own emotions.
And right here, we can see that vulnerability, that emotion plainly and so obviously.
That last 3 frames?
They break my damn heart.
John is actually prepared to die for him. This is an experience unknown to Sherlock.
He has no idea what is going on here. That slight tilt of the eyebrow gives him away.
He has had to live most of his life without friends.
And for Sherlock to experience what friendship truly means, it is heartbreaking really.
Sherlockians, ladies and gentlemen. Watching episodes frame by frame and making deductions about how all the characters feel - even those who aren’t included in the scene - for the 100th time while waiting for Season 3.
