John Watson // outfits in The Abominable Bride
I’m still not over the fact that, even in his mind palace, when Mary takes John away:
Sherlock knows that Lestrade and Mycroft will stay:
And Lestrade will get into it with him, get his hands dirty, work just as hard as he is:
And Mycroft will shine a light on everything:
Because at the end of the day, while he wants John Watson, needs him. These two have always had his back and always will:
The men that know his demons – that have seen the worst of him and not turned away – that were there before he became The Consulting Detective Sherlock Holmes© are the ones that can help him dig up the buried skeletons and face his ghosts.
