Sherlock: “If I wanted to look at naked women I’d borrow John’s laptop.”
John: “You do borrow my laptop.”
Sherlock: “I confiscate it.”
Of course, good ol’ feminist Sherlock has to protect John from viewing all those naked women as sexual objects. [“Sarcasm.” “Yes.”] A Scandal in Belgravia gave us so many good lines — and a naked woman. But in all fairness it did also give us a naked Sherlock.
Look, I’m sorry, but this meme just got to me so you’ll have to put up with a few more this week.
JW: “But it’s password protected!”
SH: “In a manner of speaking… Not exactly Fort Knox.”
I’m sure Sherlock actually confiscates it (ahem) because SH is too lazy to get up and get his own laptop. Unless he owns both a tablet [from Study] and a laptop. Knowing Sherlock, the answer is yes — to both.
SH probably finds it more fun to putter through John’s things rather than simply use his own machine. This being the same person who John takes for granted as following him — and does follow him — as if John has just gotten used to it. Just like having your sister in the house, John; just as troublesome, doesn’t let you have privacy, acts like you’re a personal convenience…
_Exactly_ like a sibling. =grins= Funny about that! :b
Also like juvenile best friends! Coke! You’re it!
Plus I’m certain Sherlock does a bit of privacy invasion as a bit of passive-aggressive dominance behaviour, esepcially since he knows he’s being watched and followed. [“I hope you didn’t mess up my sock index this time.” — A Scandal in Belgravia (This always cracks me up because as far as I’ve seen Sherlock wears the same black socks all the time; he must have a at least 8 or 9 pair of the exact same socks. So what the heck is he indexing?)]
And we all know Mycroft has had John’s computer hacked, so “Anthea” and the rest of Mycroft Harem know exactly what’s on John’s computer.
It’s a good thing John does best following orders.:-)
