Thoughts on Sherlock (and Irene) Series 2 - ravenya03
Sherlock Holmes and women do not seem like a good mix – unless it was on a to women, he does not find the need to have romantic relationships with them. He views women as inscrutable and not worthy of his trust. Irene Adler is described as an American and a retired opera singer and actress. We need to discuss Sherlock. Let's have dinner. Irene. John let out a . "You can' t have a healthy relationship and not trust your partner," he. About Irene's relationship with Sherlock: I don't think Irene has ever been a love He cannot really trust her, yet, she protects his secrets.
It's been a while since I've written a Johnlock fic, so here we go! Let me know what you lot think, okay? It had been obvious the first time she had seen the photos of the two of them together. And rumor spread throughout London's vast grapevine.
Sherlock Holmes and Women: His Attitude Towards Women
Sherlock Holmes was a great man, a genius with good looks, and he was taken by an ex army doctor. Not a lot of people Irene knew believed that Sherlock could be so taken in with someone like John. Now, Irene didn't dislike John — nor was she overly fond of him — but she thought he looked boringly average and ordinary and downright dull.
What did Sherlock see in him that she couldn't? Her intellect rivaled Sherlock's; surely, she would be able to see it. John shifted in his seat and cleared his throat, obviously uncomfortable and tense. He was jealous and Irene knew it. If she knew it, then Sherlock must have known it as well. And the blonde had been jealous the moment Irene walked into the room when they first met, as naked as the day she had been born, flaunting her gorgeous body and her looks, trying to entice Sherlock.
As a result of her hard work, she had succeeded; Sherlock was indeed interested in her, even if it wasn't because he found her sexually arousing at the moment. Irene knew that and she knew that John knew that too. John, she could tell, didn't have a high opinion of himself and doubted his relationship with Sherlock more often than not.
Watching Irene and Sherlock interact only confirmed his thoughts and feelings and made him feel incompetent and useless and unwanted, unneeded, which he was, of course. Who would choose someone like John Watson when Irene was more than willing and just…well, more? Oh, she knew that John truly loved Sherlock more than anyone.
That much as obvious.
And, to some extent, Sherlock cared for John in return, but was he in love with him? Irene highly doubted it. From what Jim had told her, Sherlock was a virgin, asexual, and married to his work; love was something strange and foreign to him and he didn't bother with it.
But just because he didn't bother with love didn't mean that he didn't find Irene attractive. He did and she knew that. All three of them knew that. Underneath her bathrobe, she was completely nude and the two men knew that. We would have a wonderful time," Irene continued.

John cleared his throat again and stood up. Irene watched as Sherlock's eyes followed John out of the room. He kept staring after him as though he could force the doctor back through sheer force of will.
It made Irene smirk inwardly to herself. Crowding his personal space, Irene pressed her lips to Sherlock's ear, unable to keep the grin off of her face.
And then, suddenly and out of nowhere, Sherlock was gone. Irene almost tumbled over and when she straightened herself up, she realized that Sherlock was on the opposite side of the room, his unnaturally bright eyes narrowed in her direction, boring into her very soul. Did he realize how much he affected her? John has given up his defences and accepted his devotion for the man.
He allows his life to revolve around Sherlock. And he is happier than ever. In TRF, he is almost ready to expose his feelings for him. I love how Irene shows John the risk of his almost overplayed heterosexuality. She traps him using his too blatant attraction for women sending a Sherlock-look-alike woman as a bait and he allows himself to get caught because he cannot resist trying to seduce a pretty woman. Sherlock finds his heart behind his own reflection, this reveal is associated with sexuality.
Irene has a paramount role in Johnlock. Will we ever see her again? Big question, I know it divides the fandom a bit. Irene needs a purpose to come back.
Some people say she has already fulfilled her purpose in the show, and I respect that. Yes, Irene has already helped Johnlock a great deal, has confronted both men with their identity and sexuality. Plus, Sherlock textually wonders where Irene could be: There are lots of misunderstandings and self-imposed repression again.
Honestly, the boys could use the sex expert now, a person bluntly spelling the situation to them. He has helped her faking her own death, without telling John. This decision foreshadowed TRF, with Sherlock trying to protect John and not including him in his plans. I am convinced series 4 will push John to a pretty dark situation. I also believe series 4 will show us an important rapprochement before taking the boys further apart. Irene could be an interesting card to play in these circumstances.
I see two possibilities: A It is a story of redemption for Sherlock, repairing the betrayal of his lie to John. Sherlock has grown up, he knows his closest friends, and love, make him stronger.
He's best when he's suffering.
Pain, discomfort, it clears his mind right up. He can divorce himself better when he's stimulated to have to ignore his body or pass out.
He runs on pain, doesn't he?

Whenever he gets over his fear of his own body he will be happiest to tell his love exactly how to hurt him. I don't really like being ordered around. You love him," he said. Irene seemed honestly taken aback. He only ever has one of each category.
Hudson is his chosen mother. These are normal things for people to have, important in their own way, and Sherlock resents any person who fits into his life that he doesn't get to pick, like Mycroft, who he's just stuck with. He'd rather be with you, completely destroying himself in the process than be at home in his normal routine. You'd rather be with him, risking absolutely everything you've worked your entire life to gain just so you can have five more minutes to be with him.
You didn't want to leave him… so you tied him down so you could be sure he'd be there when you got home. Watson… and Sherlock agreed with me," she said, sipping her wine until she drained the glass. You're attracted to all of this.
You're brilliant at seeming normal, because you know how to survive. You will survive anything, and you're the reason Sherlock has been able to live these past two years. You're his reason to be human, you know," she said. You just see their hearts. It's not flashy, in fact it's very normal, but it's important. You are attracted to the danger, the thrill, but you're attracted to people too, which is why you can hide just how much of a freak you really are.
You're one of us, and the fact that Jim never saw it proves just how good you are," Irene said. All you have to know is that I trust you with Sherlock, which is why I have a proposal for you. Two and a half days he could work on getting Sherlock out was better than none. You aren't in a relationship.
You're his new Moriarty. You're playing a game of chess, except this time instead of it being about crime and being smarter than each other, it's about deceiving each other, while you're both stupidly in love and sex is involved. You think I beat him because I like it? I do, but he hates to think I'm going easy on him.
He'd hate me if I tried to give him a safe word or I set boundaries with him.
He'd think I was babying him. If he wins he has to do it on his own. Irene smiled, but it wasn't her normally self-assured smile. It was sad, lonely, and John was suddenly reminded of Molly Hooper and the sad smiles she had for Sherlock when his back was turned… wanting and yet unable to have what she wanted.
John took a sip of the wine, needing to steady himself. He wished it was whiskey, but set that wish aside. I've taken precautions," she said. She smiled a bit. They both went quiet as the waiter took their barely touched appetizers and brought their actual dinner. He's going to win, but he'll be broken for it, you realize that right?
There's no greater thrill," she said, starting to eat. John stared at her for a long while before starting to eat as well. He guessed that she wouldn't leave until they'd both eaten their fill. Even if he had to choke on it, he needed to finish his meal. The main course seemed to drag on and on, and John was glad when it was over. Their glasses and been refilled for the third time, and the waiter returned quickly with little bowls of ice cream. He hesitated, feeling like a petulant child. He didn't think he could get away with not eating it, but he was going to do it on his own time table.
He'd wait… or he thought about it until he remember that Sherlock was tied up and stuck waiting for this dinner to be over. He started to eat, feeling like he would choke on it.
If you've at least got to be as bloody well screwed up as you are, you should do it with only him. He started to eat quickly. Watson, you'll get and ice cream headache," Irene said, eating slowly. John did slow down, knowing she wouldn't leave until she'd finished her own. She had a lot more self control than he did.
He could tell she wanted to go home as well, but she was playing her game and was going to win this round. He let her win, slowing down, matching her eating speed. Irene smiled, a very real and very beautiful smile that made John's heart skip.
Irene's warm laughter filled the restaurant. Sherlock Holmes was supremely unhappy when Irene Adler finally returned. She'd tied him very securely to her mattress, with enough slack that he could shift around and not have his newly aching muscles he'd spoken English to a man at a social function Irene had taken him to seize up under him. That didn't mean that he hadn't been in constant pain since she left him, dressed up incredibly and specifically sexy to see John Watson. She'd been trying to make him jealous.
Sherlock was shocked when he'd realized that it had. It made him angry that she dressed up to seduce his friend. It made him angry that she got to see John and he didn't. It made him angry that she'd tied him down and left him there, though that was just part for the course.
