I always see these quotes about Sherlock wanting to be a pirate and then the fandom draws cute little images of kid!lock dressed as a pirate, but what if Sherlock meant pirate as in modern-day-scary-big-guns-attacking-tankers-and-kidnapping-people pirate?
I feel like Sherlock is very innocent when he says, "This is my friend, John Watson." And when John corrects him, he looks sad. Like he thought he really had someone to call a friend. WHY MUST YOU HURT ME IN THIS WAY? ^^ohmigod you said it so well.
"I suppose this happened very early on in their relationship, before John knew Sherlock well enough to understand how much this would hurt his feelings, but I still get a little mad at him every time I watch this scene.">>> jawn be nice!
