Author's Summary

Fill for Livejournal Prompt: I know we have a ton of "Five Things" prompts but this idea won't leave me alone.
Five reasons it is hard to be Sherlock's boyfr...whatever, and one reason John wouldn't give it up for the world.I would love most if not all of the five things to be fairly minor stuff and not on the "he's a sociopath!" level. Like, "he always guesses what his Christmas presents are" or "he insists on eating from that mediocre Thai place down the street at least once a week."

Comments

Ah but this is a gorgeous, strikingly concise 5+1. It's a wonderful character study peering into John and Sherlock's relationship: uplifting, hopeful, angst-ridden, and real all at once.
