So, I was rewatching ASiP the other day (yep, here comes our old friend hiatus) and I just love these little intimate Johnlock moments (not that I haven’t noticed them before). And there are two thoughts crossing my mind during these scenes:
1. just get a room already (and that’s only the first episode!)
2. my OTP doesn’t need Photoshop :)
White Oleander on Loneliness (by Janet Fitch)
Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope people who will understand you, someone has to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment.
The story behind this painting is very interesting, though. The artist’s mother was very sick, so the house was always filled a suffocating silence. This painting depicts him wanting to scream, but having to be silent, hence the anguished expression. In the whole painting you see figures in the background, one of which is his sister.
