Sherlolly-Dancing In The Dark by lexieken Sherlolly-Dancing In The Dark by lexieken

REBLOG ON TUMBLR!

Medium: CS5

Sherlolly - Dancing in the Dark

"This really is much better."

Sherlock smiled down at his wife. “Of course it is. I told you so.”

Molly lightly swatted his shoulder but continued to sway along with him, glad to be rid of her uncomfortable heels now that they’d snuck away from Lestrade’s wedding reception and back to 221B.

Before they’d even turned on a single light, Sherlock had grabbed her by the waist and pulled her into his arms. “I owe you a dance,” he’d whispered into her ear in a tone that still managed to send a thrill down her spine.

Sherlock kept them in time to a melody in his own head but Molly was much too content to mind, following his lead easily. The sound of the material of her bridesmaid dress and his light humming were the only things she could really hear in the room, the sounds of London beyond the moonlit window behind them muted for now.

She anticipated when Sherlock leaned closer to capture her mouth with his, his hand sliding a bit lower on her back to pull her closer, never for a moment breaking their dance.

Molly was only to glad to follow where he led.

Sorry about being so cheesy. This is based on a comment from Loo who said that if Molly and Sherlock were to dance, it would be to “Dancing in the Dark”. x

I was wondering if you would ever consider doing something based off of a fan fic.  There's a story that I REALLY want to see drawn.  Here's the link: www.fanfiction.net/s/7963948/1…

I only work with the authors for illustrating fanfics and right now, since I don't know this author, I'm only willing to take it on as a commission.

Oh this is heavenly.

I add to the Molly/Sherlock pic love from Tumblr. I think in addition to Sherlolly I'll start shipping Beneloo.

Also, The Empty Hearse. Eeeee!

Thank you!!
I have trouble shipping real people because I think there's a line that should never be crossed out of respect for them as people.

And yes, the Empty Hearse was great!

Good point about real people shipping. I was mostly joking ;)


That certain scene...you know the one...all I could think of was  "Just kiss her already!" And he did!



I can't wait to see The Sign of Three.
