John comes home to find that Sherlock has been experimenting with anal beads. He decides to "help".
Two weeks ago, John and Sherlock finally kissed for the first time.
Two weeks ago, Sherlock Holmes apparently went stark raving mad.
Two weeks later, a bouquet of flowers has finally tipped John Watson over his breaking point.
John's been obsessed with Sherlock since the first time he saw him, when Sherlock showed up to take his mum's soul. But Sherlock was a spectre and John's a human, and John just couldn't do it anymore.
Fortunately, Lestrade refused to take no for an answer.
"I," Lestrade said, and then paused. "So you're in love with him, then. With Sherlock, I mean."
An embarrassed flush seeped into John's face. He said nothing.
"Because there might be an answer to this. But you'd have to be for it to work."
John kept looking at him. He'd relaxed a little, though, the wary tension in his muscles easing. "Yeah, I guess I am," he said with a bitter smile. "God, what that says about me..."
It said a lot of things, Lestrade thought, not the least of which was that John Watson was an idiot in his own right. "You know that to be with Sherlock, you can't be alive anymore."
"Yeah. I figured that."
