Alpha!Sherlock and Omega!John have been dancing around each other for ages. Sherlock refuses make the first move so they can start a relationship and when John tries to make a move, Sherlock rebuffs him advances.
Then John gets a brilliant idea. He starts flirting with everyone (Random Girls or Guys, Lestrade, Sally, Anderson, Mycroft. EVERYONE.) in order to get Sherlock jealous enough.
It works, Sherlock becomes extremely jealous because if someone is going to be John Watson's mate, it is going to be him.
There are certain facts in life. Fire burns. Mondays suck. Alphas court Omegas.
Actually, everyone courts Omegas. No one can help themselves when the sweet aroma of Omega pheromones hit the air. Though the fact that Omegas only comprise 5% of the population means that Betas don't really have a good chance of winning in the elaborate courting games. Alphas, with their social, political, and physical dominance (not to mention their greater compatibility to Omega sexual needs in the oh so praised knot), are known to literally steal an Omega from a lucky Beta's arms.
So it's really beyond frustrating that Sherlock won't make a MOVE for John.
John hasn't produced so much Scent since puberty what with constantly being around a healthy and virile Alpha. He constantly wants to breed, to have a baby, specifically with Sherlock. He'd go back on the suppressants he was on during his military service if he thought that Sherlock wasn't interested except that Sherlock clearly wants him as well. At least if the constant little touches, the extra deep inhalations of Scented air around John and resulting bulge in his pants are anything to go by.
But that's been the extent of it. There's been none of the traditional rituals Alphas engage in to alert their Omega that courting's started. No luxurious clothes or accessories (traditionally meant to indicate the Alpha's ability to cloth and shelter his/her Omega). No sumptuous meals (meant to raise the Omega's energy reserves before mating). Not even a little growl against other potential suitors (meant to indicate their territorial claim). And Sherlock goes rigid and locks into the most uncomfortable stances anytime John leans into his touches or lightly brushes his bum against Sherlock's erection. It just seems to make him crankier than normal which frankly, is too much for any one person to handle.
It's unheard of for Omegas to make the first move but John is really at his wits end. He's not really old but his breeding cycle is lapsing into less fertile years and at the rate Sherlock's going (which is apparently 0 mph), they'll be no little pitter patter of Watson-Holmes feet running around 221B, ever. He's not really sure if this is a good idea considering how volatile Sherlock can be but it's the only thing he can think of. He can't force Sherlock into anything he doesn't want to do but he can show him that he'll lose out on John if he doesn't pull that genius head out his arse and MAKE A MOVE.
