I always thought tumbleweeds only existed in westerns like unicorns are to fairytales
(jesus how does any1 do replies on their phone????/?//?) omg I feel like this is the viewpoint of so many ppl which is so strange 2 me bc in my hometown tumbleweeds r so common like overgrown but cheerful ginormous rolling animals or s/t that r just fucking EVERYWHERE perhaps this just means that I 2 am mythical
so it starts off because it’s for RESEARCH, watson he says very prim and all-knowing and that’s-the-end-of-that and she rolls her eyes but she’s like ok fine sure a cross-country road trip is for research. but she agrees to go, ofc, w a little smile she bites her lips 2 hold back, and THEN he takes her out front and she’s like NO REALLY U’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME WITH THIS, bc he’s modified a covered-bed pickup to have the back be like a whole little room with a mattress and everything and then he’s like worried for a sec and he’s like is it the mattress, bc we can very easily get a folding screen to put up in the middle, and she’s like …no it’s fine, which, her responses comes maybe a little TOO quickly but he’s 2 busy being nervous himself 2 d~e~d~u~c~t~~ ~*~ so a few days later they’re all packed and ready 2 go & he’s like okay so approximately 45 hours, budgeting in for some traffic (for the first day and a half he watches the gps with a twitch in his eye every time the eta moves back a minute but then he sort of just…intentionally…forgets abt it), 9 hours a day sounds like a healthy pace, we can make it there in five days. but yeah obvi it doesn’t work out like that, @ first they’re like we’ll take turns and we can each sleep while the other is driving, but no they stay up late together listening to the same top forty songs a million times until they know basically all of them by heart, and they also listen 2 pride & prejudice on audiobook bc sherlock found 1 in the itunes library for 99 cents, and all this staying awake together means also sleeping at the same time. sherlock tries to lie very straight and polite but joan is a pretty sprawly sleeper and so ofc this results in always waking up all snuggly which they both LOVE but nevr talk abt (but they don’t NOT talk abt it either it’s just like, something that IS) and also they spend several nights lying on top of the truck staring at the stars bc they’re so much clearer out in fuckit, nowhere. several nights bc the path they take ends up being WAY more zig-zaggy than originally intended, like, they stretch this shit out to three weeks and go visit anything and everything and sherlock has a secret weakness for kitschy old american candies u get @ rest stop gas stations, and it turns out joan actually REALLY REALLY wants to see all the shit like the world’s largest ball of twine, like burning desire, but she tries to pass it off as oh but we have to do this for YOU, sherlock, this is the American Road Trip Experience and all, which OBVI he sees right through but now it’s HIS turn for trying to hide his little smile and all that.
and yeah, so maybe there are certain songs he starts hoping will come on the radio (they also play a lot of I spy and all that, btw, if I didn’t already mention, and sherlock is TOTALLY a major cheater @ I spy bc like omg a bug that flew past us TEN MILES AGO totally doesn’t COUNT sherlock omg) bc he can sing them badly not necessarily AT joan but just sort of, you know, in her general DIRECTION and the fact that he sings the parts abt ~~affections~~ and stuff especially earnestly (earnestness makes his singing worse, also) is unintentional, jesus. (they also get deeply in2 country on this trip, both old and modern and good and deeply terrible.)
and then when they finally make it all the way out west. they just sort of stand in front of the pacific ocean in awe late at night, bc once they were almost there in those last few hours, with the windows down and the dark air hot and full of the scent of jasmine and honeysuckle, they were too excited and close to stop. and you can smell the salt along with the flowers now and MAYBE sherlock’s eyes fill up for a second but he blinks and they’re gone. and it’s hard to know, really, who reached out their hand first, because they were already standing so close their arms were touching. sherlock was only trying to steady her in the sand, maybe, and joan was bracing herself because she thought he had something Informational to share. about superfamily hippoidea, maybe. but either way, they’re holding hands now, I mean, if you WANT to call it that, loosely but then tighter, and everything is so VAST, the stars and the sea and it’s all just so massive and right there, but not in a bad way, bc it’s warm and wonderful and so they stand there and hold hands and start talking again, and it spirals up on the ocean air.
i remember someone talked about this once, with me, and it really is disturbing as hell. fathers and older brothers get “over”protective because they know just how terrible and horrible men are towards women.
