The Bright Spot Meme


(Was there every a more suitable meme for dear Molly?)

punchmeitssubtext: (Biology doesn't lie.)

He watches her face go serious, watches her interpret something he did and didn't intend, and before he can catch up and clarify she's kissing him hard and his brain starts flickering like a bulb getting too much current. Her hands are tangled in his hair and it makes this strange not-quite-a-chill go down his spine, a long and watery slide.

His heart is pounding.

It jumps under his skin where he and Molly touch. He doesn't know how to control it anymore. It's not just an internal organ, it's a heart, and Molly makes it do things he doesn't understand.

She's taking long, drugging tastes of his mouth, pulling his capacity for rational thought up from the roots of his hair and into her fingers. His hands flatten against her back, slide up to curl around her shoulderblades and tug her closer. Why does this feel so similar to hauling himself onto a stranger's motorcycle and tearing towards danger at high speed?

A sudden, powerful thought strikes him, one that somehow runs down his right arm as a pulse of electricity that guides his hand up and into her loose ponytail to tug her hair free.

He wants to know what it sounds like when she says it and she's not crying.
punchmeitssubtext: (Finally got it.)

He has to run his hand through the soft sweep of her hair, a slide that makes his fingers prickle with excitement and makes his heart rattle faster. His own face is flushed, eyes dark and startled as he realizes how her body is reacting to his.

"Molly." It somehow seems urgent that he lets her know, even if all he can manage is a whisper. "I think--I think I have to say it."
punchmeitssubtext: (Finally got it.)

[personal profile] punchmeitssubtext 2017-01-28 02:02 am (UTC)(link)
He's never seen her look like this before. Not with anyone. Not under any circumstances. It's new, and somehow she saved it up for him, for this moment, and that's what finally sends the truth spilling into this small warm space between them.

"I love you," he says, and means it.

Oh god. That's not good. That's not good, he's making Molly Hooper cry again and that's not why he came here tonight at all, and--

--and it sounds so different this time, even though her eyes are too bright and her voice cracks. It sounds different because there's a future tangled up in it, because this is something beginning, because it's just the two of them this time and it's still true.

His fingers card through her hair again, tracing the shape of her skull. The sensation keeps the dizziness of relief from overwhelming him. He's in love, he's loved back, and nothing has exploded. And he can't pinpoint the source of the urge, but something makes him pull his hand free gently and trace his fingertips over her carotid artery.

Again it's different. This is like tackling a language whose roots he's never heard before. Every new piece of information is equally significant.

She tips her head for him, inviting his touch, and all at once he needs to kiss the bitter wetness away from under her eyes. His hand settles a little more firmly on her throat, and he traces a slow line down towards the collar of her jumper, mapping the terrain inch by inch.

punchmeitssubtext: (Gotcha.)

[personal profile] punchmeitssubtext 2017-02-18 07:24 pm (UTC)(link)
((ooc: looping the comment thread because haha what 350 comments))

(Well, for today, it's largely calling in favors and actually making sure that the clean-up will be able to run smoothly for at least the next forty-eight hours without him. Sherlock is capable of planning ahead, when it's important enough to him, and this is important enough that he doesn't want anything or anyone pulling him away from it.)

"Okay. I'll stop by. Go have lunch, I'll text you when I'm close."

*

It turns out that while Molly's phone was otherwise occupied, John's actually texted her.

To: Molly
From: John


12:40: Okay, one thing. Before I left you said he's been lovely. I just want you to know, we've talked about it a little and from what I can tell he really does want this to work. So I just want you to know, if he's lovely, it's because he means it. And good on you.

12:43: Anyway, see you later. :)


He's actually not the only one. One of her coworkers at Barts is, it turns out, too intrigued by the sudden change in her to keep quiet.

To: Molly
From: Sophie (Work)


12:38: Molls I can't help it, I'm dying of curiosity. Tell me about him!!

*

It's almost two and a half hours before her phone goes off with one of Sherlock's text alerts again.

To: Molly
From: Sherlock


3:34 PM: John gets upset when I pick his lock. Let me in, I come bearing gifts.
punchmeitssubtext: (With Molly.)

(She won't know it for a while, but John has to excuse himself for a minute to swallow back a sudden lump in his throat when he gets her texts. He'd never have expected this kind of emotional growth from his best friend, and while objectively he's aware it couldn't have happened without him... well, it's different to hear it, and it touches him, and makes him miss Mary because he knows she'd have been proud of them both.)

To: Molly
From: John


2:31 PM: Thanks Molly.

To: Molly
From: Sophie (Work)


Well, that much I can tell just by looking at you! ;) Is there ANYTHING you can tell me?? Otherwise I'll just keep imagining it's Daniel Craig.

When he sees her again, Sherlock's face lights with the same kind of slow smile he usually reserves for John--only because it's aimed at Molly, it's different, its warmth just a single degree softer than he lets anyone see.

"Hi," he replies, and because it's been approximately three days too many since the last time, he bends to kiss her. Right there, on the front step, in full view of the surveillance camera he knows his brother has pointed at the door. (Hell, if Kitty Riley is still bitter that his reputation's been redeemed twice over by now, she'd be welcome to watch and tweet about it too. He's been through a shattering ordeal and somehow emerged from it having earned the privilege of being the only person who gets to kiss Molly Hooper like this. Sherlock thinks he's more than allowed to show off.)

The kiss doesn't last long, though. Rosie isn't quite big enough to reach Sherlock's curls yet, but she does manage to get a fistful of his coat lapel and yank on it insistently, burbling excitedly.

"Ow," he says fondly as he pulls back. "Manners, tiny Watson."
punchmeitssubtext: (Coffee!)

Sherlock notices that abbreviation, by the way--notices how she means it as a private joke and not as some misguided term of endearment--and promptly decides he's going to get his revenge on all of them by giving Rosie a violin when she turns three. Granted, if she turns out to be a musical genius and not just a toddler with a string instrument then it'll just make him the favorite godparent (he hopes), so whatever the inevitable outcome, he wins.

He hangs his coat and scarf on the back of the door, the way he would if he were at home, and after he wheels his suitcase over to the threshold of his room he heads back over to settle in next to her.

"So I see. I'd have brought you a souvenir, Rosamund," he chided, "but I know you're still hazy on object permanence, so instead I'll read you something later. Treasure Island, maybe. You'll like that one."

His gaze flicks upwards to catch Molly's, and in the same moment he realizes three things: he's just been talking to an infant like she can understand him; he's done it in front of someone other than John (or Mary) for the first time; and Molly isn't going to say anything barbed about it.
punchmeitssubtext: (Gotcha.)

"Well, most of being in Cardiff was waiting around for one thing or another, but it went well. Caught someone who was trying to gaslight their way into a massive inheritance, which I wasn't actually expecting. No doubt John'll have it up on the blog soon; we had a couple of remote consults while I was there, since someone needed seeing to back in London."

He gives Rosie a wry look. She blinks up at him and Molly with huge dark-blue eyes as if to say, What? I'm innocent.

"Work's been going well for you, I see." He leans into her warmth a little. "Certainly sounded productive from your texts."
punchmeitssubtext: (Gotcha.)

"One of--oh, shit, I'd completely forgotten." He's had a lot going on--they both have--and quite a few things dropped to the bottom of his priority list during the very recent reorganization it's had over the weekend. "Hang on, let me put an alert in my phone..."

He grabs his mobile out of his pocket to do exactly that, but before he unlocks it, he glances over at her again. There's something important to do here, something that matters because he knows it's a way to communicate at least part of the tangle of emotion that underscores everything he's thinking right now.

"Thank you, Molly."

Sherlock Holmes says thank you the way another man would tell her I love you.
punchmeitssubtext: (Gotcha.)

Her laughter is contagious, drawing a low, helpless giggle out of him. It's the same kind of relieved, surprised giggling that seized him after their first kiss.

"God, we've got a disgusting goddaughter."

The sentence slips out of him before he can really grasp the full impact of what he's said. They're all tied together now, a strange little human network of people who've chosen to share parts of their lives despite (and, let's be honest, because of) the danger involved. But Sherlock's not quite ready to process an emotional revelation like this today, especially since Molly's laughing and that's a sight he tucks away as proudly as any really clever scientific insight.
