Execution:

Date Idea Step 1:

  • Act like you normally do around him. Being yourself is extremely important. Not only will he smell a rat if you start acting strange and weird, it'll probably put him on alert and possibly turn him off.

 

                        “Tea?”

                        “Right. Good morning to you too, then”

                        “I meant, would you like some. Seriously, John.”

                        “What? You? Make tea?”

                        “Fine. This is useless, then. I’ll just pour this down the drain.”

                        “No, it’s not that, Sherlock. Thank you. It’s just that you never make tea. Unless… What did you put in this? Dammit, Sherlock.”

                        “I didn’t put anything in it. You made me promise, remember? It’s just tea.”

                        “Oh. Okay, then. Thanks. Just different…”

 

  • Step 1 and I messed up. Brilliant.

 

                    “It’s a good kind of different.”

                        “Oh. Good then.”

 

Date Idea Step 2:

  • Ask him questions about what he's doing on the weekend. He's your best friend. For all he knows, you might be suggesting a visit to the library together.

           

                        “What are you doing this weekend?”

                        “It’s Monday. Err.. Nothing.”

 

  • So far so good.

 

                        “Why do you ask? Do we have a case?”

                        “No. We don’t. Why would you assume that?”

                        “Nothing. I’ll be off.”

 

Date Idea Step 3:

  • Get a little flirtatious! Here's where it begins to cross the divide between normal friendship and moving it up to the next level. Strike a few cute poses, twirl your hair a little and make eye contact. Biting your lip is cute, too. A few longer-than-usual lingering looks should be great. Give him sweet little smiles.
  • Tedious; John is used to me staring at him, studying him

 

                        “Sherlock? Are you in pain? You’ve been biting your lip for a while now and it looks like it’s about to bleed.”

                        “So would it be safe to assume you were staring at my lips, John?”

 

  • John’s face slightly reddens from this type of teasing.
    • Good

 

 

                        “Oh God! What are you doing! You nearly gave me a heart attack! What are you doing standing in front of the bathroom door with that wicked little smile?”

                        “Nothing, John.”

                        “Bloody hell. You gave me a fright. Did you want to use the loo? You could’ve just knocked and told me to hurry up, Sherlock!”

                        “…”

                        “Something the matter? I’ve nothing but a towel on. Move. Stop staring. I gotta get dressed.”

  • John’s scar on his left shoulder has the most interesting pattern
  • Need to gather data as soon as possible
  • Need to map out the scar with fingers, to study the pattern
    • John’s body is short but compact. Perfect.

 

 

Execution:

Date Idea Step 4:

  • Offer compliments. As a best friend, you already know things about him - make sure he knows that you appreciate some of those things you know about him. Don't overdo it - just be sensible

Date Idea Step 5:

  • Ask him to a movie or something you both enjoy doing. If it makes you uncomfortable to call it a date, just ask him if he wants to 'go to the movies'. Congratulations, you've asked him out!

 

                     “That oatmeal coloured jumper. Where is it?”

                         “It’s still in the wash. Why?”

                         I like it. It was the one you wore the first time we went out on a London chase.”

                         “Yeah, it was. Same jumper and same night when you fixed my limp.”

                         “Yes, John.”

                         “Will never forget that night. Especially since…”

                         “Since what?”

                         “Technically, I was right, and you were... less right?

                         “What was I wrong about?”

                         “Well, I got the taxi’s plate number. And you brushed it off then we chased the cab because you thought it was the passenger, not the cabbie.”

                         “Lucky guess, John. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t get to catch who he was.”

                         “Yes. You figured him out, didn’t you? Who was it who shot him, again? I forget.”

                         “As valiant as your efforts are to tease me about that night, I would not want to turn you over for shooting a cabbie. Unless, you want to tell Lestrade?”

                         “But he wasn’t a very nice cabbie…”

                         “No. No, he really wasn’t, was he?”

                         “…”

                         “Starving?”

                         “Yes. In the mood for Thai. You make the call and I’ll pop something on the DVD.”

                         “Fine.”

 

  • Not sure if the movie counts as a date
  • Update: It was not

Log:

  • Another opportunity arose to tell people that John’s not gay and we’re not a couple.
  • Unlike the last four instances, John does not look away; instead he just smiles his small smile while shaking his head just a fraction
  • Need to decide whether to ask John on a date or trick him into having one

 

Execution:

Date Plans

                       “John, I will be starving tomorrow night. Where would you like to go?”

                          “You haven’t eaten? Sherlock, I told you before, you have to eat!”

                          “That’s what I’m telling you. I am going to eat tomorrow, we are going to eat tomorrow. Now, John, where would you like to eat? Angelo’s? In the mood for curry? Thai? Chinese”

                          “Sherlock… err, fine. Feeling a bit like Italian. Angelo’s would be fine. Shall I call and make some reservations?”

                          “John, really? Preposterous. Angelo always has a table for us.”

                          “But it’s the weekend before Valentine’s.”

                          “What? Oh, people usually go out on dates, don’t they? No matter. I’m sure Angelo would be able to accommodate us.”

                          “Okay. Your call.”

 

  • Note: Call Angelo’s to make dinner reservations

                    “Ready?”

                        “Let’s go.”

                        “Did you really not eat for… three days?”

                        “Four. Yes. I had tea. Thanks to you.”

                        “Why am I not surprised? You need more than tea, Sherlock.”

                        “Yes, thank you, doctor.”

                        “Doctor. Yeah. I can’t even feed my flatmate.”

                        “You do loads more than just threaten to force feed me, you occasionally save my life, make Mycroft go away, explain the inane details to Lestrade, oh, yes, and make tea. Good man. I appreciate it.”

                        “Err... Sherlock?”

                        “Yeah?”

                        “You’re not gonna die on me, are you? You suddenly say stuff like this, amazing stuff, but true stuff. Should I be worried?”

                        “Nonsense, John! Just saying the truth. What? I can’t tell someone how tolerable living with them has become? That they are not complete idiots, that---“

                        “Hold on, you were being nice just a second ago. Don’t ruin the moment, you git.”

                        “Well, I always do that, don’t I?”

                        “Yeah. But since we’re doing this mushy stuff, I like threatening you when you piss me off. And when you drag me to crime scenes, even when you tell Donovan and Anderson off when they’re being jerks. Oh, even when you trick me in to taking a walk but then going to the morgue. Yeah, those things you do.”

                        “I didn’t know you appreciated those things.”

                        “But that does not mean it’s okay all the time, you idiot. It’s fun but it could get exhausting.”

                        “Hence, this night out. Good  Italian food shared with great company.”

. . .

                        “Ah! My favorite couple! Sherlock, great seeing you again, you didn’t have to make a  reservation, Sherlock. You are always welcome here. You and John, you always have the best seats here at my humble restaurant. John. Nice night isn’t it?”

                        “Yes, it is. Hey, I didn’t know you called in for a reservation.”

                        “Well, you told me, so I did.”

                        “Here you go. Candles, to make it more romantic. Valentine’s day is just a few days away, but with you two being busy, I understand why you want to have a night out in advance. Many customers here are doing the same, you know? Just call me when you’re ready. Remember, anything you want, no charge.”

 

 

 

 

 

 . . .

                        “So, Sherlock, what are you going to order?”

                        “You’re gonna have the Chicken parmigiana, you’ve been craving it. I will have the Fettuccine alfredo. What about the dessert later?”

                        “Dessert?”

                        “Of course. Angelo would pick the best wine for our meals. So, dessert.”

                        “Okay, how about this, Tiramisu gateau.”

                        “Excellent.”

 . . . 

                        “Sherlock,” 

                        “Hmm?”

                        “Is this a date?”

                        “What gave you the idea, John?”

                        “Oh, sorry. I just assumed. Well, you say that people shouldn’t assume things, they need to observe. Well, basically what I’m saying is, from what I have     observed, you acting all weird lately, and even attempting to do the shopping, and when I say attempt, it’s just that, you didn’t even make it pass the door when Lestrade texted. What I’m saying is, I suspect that what we are having right now is a date. God, I’m a complete doofus, you said you’re married to your work, I know. But, I just felt like it was. Maybe it’s because I haven’t dated anyone in three months that going out with your mate for dinner is a date. I’m rambling right now. Yeah, so if this is not a date I feel like a fool, if it is, I have made a fool of myself for asking. So yeah, is this one   or should I—“

                        “I asked you what gave you the idea, what tipped you off. Stop your inane blabbing. Yes. This is, in fact, a date. What ordinary people like those over there do. Is it not something you do when you would like to get to know a person better?”

                       “But a date is different, Sherlock. Besides, you knew almost everything about me in the first ten seconds after looking at me. A date is different, maybe you got it confused.”

                       “Impossible. I researched about everything I needed to know.”

                       “Researched? What do you mean?”

                       “If you must know, I researched how to tell if you are in love, or in my case, starting to; researched signs if the person you like is a good match for you, complete bollocks, that one; researched ways to tell someone you like them; researched the percentage of you still being my flatmate if ever you reject my intentions; researched how to ask a friend out on a date, which I am currently still on step 5 according to the site I used. I would have wanted to go to the last step, step 6 already, but seeing the movie night wasn’t considered a date, I planned this night to have a “proper” date with you. I also researched on   how to handle falling in love with a straight male friend, but I found it a bit upsetting so I deleted it.”

                       “You researched all that and…”

                       “What?”

                       “…”

                       “What?”

                      “I knew you’d catch on.”

Execution:

Date Idea Step 6:

  • Take it further. So, you want to make out? Take it easy! If he's a good one that's worth hanging onto, he's worth taking things really slowly with. Let this relationship grow and simmer a while. Good things take time. Be happy he's a best friend and make sure nothing rocks that. He'll still go to the ends of the earth for you as a best friend; don't mess that up.

                    “So, you wanted this the whole time. You knew and you didn’t tell me.”

                        “I wasn’t worried.”

                        “How so?”

                        “The great Sherlock Holmes not figure something out? Impossible.”

                        “You give me too much credit, John.”

                        “No, not really. I’d like to think I give it where it’s due. And you caught on didn’t you? A bit slow on the uptake but you did it brilliantly. Managed to sweep me off my feet.”

                        “I’d like to do it quite literally”

                        “Come here.”

~~~~~~

                        “I love you, John.”

                        “I know.”
