Sherlock and Moriarty Kiss
OK, it's been pointed out to me that in the interest of balance I absolutely have to blog about the kiss between Sherlock and Moriarty as well.
What can I say? It didn't have the passion of his kiss with Molly, but it had way more build up and sexy tension. The way Moriarty looks at him, his eyes flicking to Sherlock's mouth like he can't resist it - yet he does, he lets Sherlock figure out what he's thinking. It takes him only milliseconds, he can read any facial expression after all, and he recognises the subtle look and the shift in Moriarty's thinking, he spots the exact moment when Moriarty thinks about kissing him and less than a second later you can see the process in his own mind, him deciding whether or not to go for it. Then he does and every Sherlock fan on the planet let out a simultaneous gasp. But it was shocked delight. The fanfiction is bursting at the seams with Sherlock and Moriarty romance. There is no doubt at all that Gatiss and Moffat put this in for the serious fans to squeal over.
And yes, it's still bloody thrilling and takes the Stella award for sexual tension, but not for the perfect kiss, that one still goes to Sherlock and Molly Hooper....
