THIS SCARED THE PISS OUT OF ME WHY IS NO ONE TALKING ABOUT THIS
SHERLOCK COULD BREAK MYCROFT
AND SO WHAT DOES HE DO WHEN MYCROFT DECIDES TO BELITTLE HIM?
HE GOES AND ALMOST FUCKING BREAKS HIS ARM
SHERLOCK HAS AN INSANE AMOUNT OF SELF-CONTROL WHEN HE’S NOT HIGH AND WE ALL MISS IT BECAUSE WE DON’T GET TO SEE THESE MOMENTS
This is a pretty standard submission hold (although a stage version so not exactly accurate). It is proof he’s really irritated here but also requires a lot of self control to do well and without harming the other person. I can do this move safely but not if I was high and really pissed off. What Sherlock could actually do to his brother if he truly wanted to hurt him is far worse than this. This was merely an intimidation tactic.
