The Albator figurine comes out to play during bathtime for plundering enemy ships and duckies

Look at this meta by Brontë, anon. I agree with it 100%.
And I want to add a few points to this:
Pressure point is not only someone you care about, it’s also something that is your weakness. I don’t think Sherlock is John’s weakness, in the same way that John is Sherlock’s. Magnussen probably knew about the pool, about Reichenbach, about the CIA agent’s in Irene’s house. It’s always John being threatened in order to get to Sherlock, not the other way around. John is Sherlock’s damsel in distress and Sherlock is John’s knight in a shining armor ;)
Besides, as we see repeatedly during the course of the series, even at the end of HLV, John always believes in Sherlock. He always thinks Sherlock has a plan. Maybe his faith was shaken after Reichenbach, but it came back with full force after Sherlock returned. It would be useless to threaten Sherlock in order to get to John, because John believes Sherlock will always find a way to outsmart his opponent, no matter what John does. Why would John be worried about Sherlock, when this is a man who came back from the dead? He’s Sherlock Holmes, he’s as clever as it gets, he’s the smartest one in the room, he always has a plan. When things go wrong, John always turns to Sherlock.
Of course WE as an audience know that this is not true. We know that Sherlock is vulnerable, that he’s not ‘indestructible’. We saw his panic at the roof, we saw him at the wedding, we know that what John sees is just a facade. But John doesn’t know that, because Sherlock looks sad when he thinks John can’t see him. And I think that’s the whole point of HLV - to bring Sherlock to the point where all his plans fail and in the end he’s just a man, and to make John see that as well.
The next time there’s an awkward silence, try whispering, “Did you forget your line?”
I ADORE THIS.
There was one feature, and only one feature, of interest in the whole of this baffling case, and quite frankly it was the usual. John Watson - who, while I was trying to solve the murder, instead saved a life.
So Sherlock has admitted, to a whole room full of people who know that he has committed his life and the entirety of his attention span to crime-solving, that he finds John Watson more interesting than most of his cases. John Watson is more interesting to Sherlock than a crime scene. More interesting than an attempted murder he can’t solve.

I have a headcanon that Sherlock is a fan of Albator the space pirate (cheesy 80’s anime) from when he was a kid.
