221B Week, Day 5: All I Do

BBC Sherlock

Rating 12 (slash)

As Ella asked John another question about his dreams that he really didn't want to answer he heard the door behind him open. And then a familiar voice announced: "No time for this. I need you right now, John."

"Sherlock, I'm busy!"

"You're interrupting my therapy, Mr Holmes," Ella protested.

"Am I? I thought I was simplifying it," Sherlock said, grinning wickedly. "You were discussing me, of course – hence not only annoyance, but actual alarm when I appeared. And from the blush spreading on John's face, you'd just asked him a particularly sensitive question. So rather than you ineffectively attempting to establish what his feelings about me are, let me simply demonstrate."

He swung round to John, who opened his mouth to protest, and then found it mysteriously wrapped round Sherlock's tongue as they kissed. And why had his body not previously noticed how much it longed to curl into Sherlock's grasp?

"John," Sherlock breathed, "John...John! Are you listening to what I'm saying? Have you fallen asleep over there?"

"What?" John demanded, trying and failing to stand up from a chair that had abruptly relocated itself back to 221B.

"You were thrashing about just now. Were you having a nightmare?" Sherlock's gaze - calm, impersonal  - travelled over John.

"No," John replied with resignation. "Not a nightmare. Just...very bizarre."


All I Do is Dream of You

Dreams Not To Tell Your Therapist, Number 1 in an occasional series... *grins*

loved the clip as well - the only version I knew was the one from Singin' In The Rain.

I think the most alarming bit isn't that John's dreaming about Sherlock, but that the dream Sherlock is now making logically plausible deductions. It's like when I realised that I now have one very eminent female historian's voice permanently lodged in a section of my brain, and prone to coming out and asking: 'But what do we mean by X?' at odd moments.

I'm currently trying to write a more serious Ella/John conversation piece, inspired partly by your Ella/Anthea fic. I might ask you for advice/betaing at some point, to see if I've got a plausible therapist voice.

As for the video, I only knew it from Singing in the Rain as well, but almost all the songs in that come from previous shows, so I thought there must be other versions, and Youtube was my friend as usual.
