no but see i have a lot of feelings about this right here
when john and irene had their showdown at the abandoned building, sherlock was there. sherlock heard everything. sherlock heard both the lesbian dominatrix and his best friend basically confess to being in love with him. what he also heard was irene asking john if the fact that sherlock never texts back “makes her special,” and john replying “i don’t know, maybe.”
the very next thing sherlock does (besides rescuing his landlady from the clutches of the americans and restoring balance to the universe)?
he texts irene back. irene is not special.
(then he spends new year’s eve serenading john with the violin by firelight so idk i’m gonna argue that means john is.)
