People are not rain or now or autumn leaves // Sherlock like “quick I have to come up with something that will make John stop caring about me” What actually comes out of his mouth “I researched you before we met, I did everything I could to impress you.
That's a head canon thing I accept. But it makes a lot of sense of why Sherlock would be so darn protective of her! That is a terrible theory! But it is a great reason for them to be so protective! I would personally like to Slap Mycroft in the face now!
