when magnussen says “but look how you care about john watson” and then john turns around to face him and sherlock fucking lowers his gaze to avoid meeting john’s eyes
because that’s what you do when you’re in fucking actual love with someone to the end of the earth with all your being and the whole world still thinks you’re some kind of unfeeling frozen robot shit
I just rewatched that bit and you can’t see Sherlock lowering his gaze??
Yeah. You only see him from far away after that’s said and can’t see him well. He’s turned more towards Magnussen than down but I guess it’s true he’s not looking at John.
