You look sad… When you think he can’t see you. Are you okay? And don’t just say you are, because I know what that means, looking sad when you think no one else can see.
You can see me.
I don’t count.
Demon AU: Demon!John wants to serve Lucifer!Sherlock, again.
“You know, sentiment is a chemical defect found in the losing side.”

We can’t, Sir.
Mycroft finally manages to track the sniper down to get information from him about Moriarty. When he doesn’t speak and refuses to tell them information about the criminal’s whereabouts, they torture him in an attempt to get some details, yet he still says nothing and eventually dies from the large amount of blood loss.
And Jim constantly refuses to believe his tiger is dead once he’s told the news.
No, thank you, Sarah.
Er, no, no, he’s no good with names.
Sarah was the doctor and then there was the one with the spots and then the one with the nose and then who was after the boring teacher?
Jeanette! Ah, process of elimination.
The more they ate, the faster they died. Neat.
You can tell in the fifth gif that Sherlock is just so genuinely confused because this one man, John Watson, is somehow managing to surprise him. The second he thinks he has the army doctor figured out, or that he’s going to react to what he says like everyone else does, hatefully and telling him what a child he is, John laughs. And not at him like everyone else does behind his back, but with him. He genuinely thinks he’s funny and clever. John likes him. And it’s such a new feeling to Sherlock; you can tell in the sixth gif he’s just stunned but also so incredibly happy that I think he surprises himself and smiles/starts to laugh. He literally can’t even help himself because someone else finally understands his sense of humor and him in general. We already can infer that starting as a child Sherlock was made fun of and it continued his whole life; hell this could be the first time ever that someone has responded the way John does.
It might be a more understated scene in comparison to the laughter/jokes they share at other points like in Scandal, but it’s still so incredibly important because this sets up the base for those scenes; Sherlock knowing that John appreciates him just how he is. That he can be open and make those kind of jokes he does later. John Watson, the unassuming army doctor, lets Sherlock be himself and not only does he not judge him for it, but he enjoys it.
