Metaphor Short-Stature, or, How John Watson Finally Learned to Love Himself (and Sherlock) by Loving Himself by May_Shepard for meretriciovs, MonikaKrasnorada, handsinpants, hopelesslybenaddicted, QueenMab3, IamJohnLocked4life, RoseinMyHand

Once upon a time, eight Johnlock loving Tumblrers got together and complained vigorously about John Watson. Together, they envisioned a better John Watson, one who cared, one who wasn't quite so trashy, one who could see the hot loveliness right in front of him and get on it like he should. Simultaneously, they started a joking conversation about the way Moftiss used the name Jonathan Small in TSoT. "They might as well have called him Metaphor Short-Stature," the comment ran, I think originally RoseInMyHand's.
Hence Metaphor Short-Stature was born, the John Watson we all wish John Watson could be.
Shortly thereafter I wrote this crack, and cast my dear friends in MSS love in it. I hope if you're reading this it brings you even the tiniest amount of the joy this ridiculousness has brought us.
For a longer, crackier, and more amazing explanation of the origins of Metaphor Short-Stature, please go and read the incredible meta written by heimishtheidealhuband: Fandom, Meet Metaphor Short-Stature.
