#genius dummies who made home with each other#ok look at this whole spam and cry a little bit#and then focus on EACH INDIVIDUAL GIF#it is RIDICULOUS let me TELL YOU#my favourite thing in the world#the bottom row made me pause when i was watching the show#he doesn’t even ever introduce it as something he made but it’s so lovely and earnest and constant and low-key and kind#he just adores her
#I love a lot of things about the way this show turned out but maybe the very best one is how joan is a watson with limits #I don’t think I’ve ever seen an adaptation where watson doesn’t sigh in exasperation and then put up with the abuse #from day zero she’s laying down rules #and she’s patient and forgiving and remarkably low-key #(anyone who wakes me up before my alarm clock on the regular is getting a knife to the face) #but she absolutely knows the difference between eccentricity and unreasonable behavior #and is utterly able and willing to enforce boundaries #and to call holmes out #repeatedly. #now that I think of it I don’t particularly find watson interesting or likeable in… any adaptation I’ve seen? #and suddenly you have a holmes/watson dynamic that’s actually played as equal #where 2/3rds of their interaction is negotiation #(the other 1/3rd is mutual appreciation society and it’s so much better because of the negotiations) #real friends don’t just love you #they also challenge you to become a better version of yourself #that’s the show.

you’re more clever than I initially estimated - more interesting.
You know what I thought the first time I met you? ‘Man, it comes easy for that guy’. Well, I’m sorry. Doesn’t come that easy to the rest of us.
