You still haven't given me an answer.
SH

12:14
An answer to what?
JW

12:14
My question.
SH

12:15
What question?
JW

12:15
Don't play the fool.
SH

12:16
I'm not playing anything.
JW

12:16
So you are a fool?
SH

12:17
Sherlock!
JW

12:17
It's a fair question.
SH

12:18
It is not, you tosser.
JW

12:18
You can answer "No". I won't be offended.
SH

12:19
Answer "No" to what?
JW

12:20
The question!
SH

12:20
What question?
JW

12:21
Really John, we went over this yesterday afternoon.
SH

12:21
I was at work yesterday afternoon!
JW

12:22
Not my fault you weren't listening.
SH

12:22
I don't have super-human hearing!
JW

12:23
Obviously.
SH

12:23
Would you just ask me again?
JW

12:24
You know I dislike repeating myself.
SH

12:24
Well I can't answer if you don't ask.
JW

12:25
But I've already asked.
SH

12:25
Keep this up and I'll just answer "No" to end the conversation.
JW

12:26
That's unfortunate. It makes perfectly logical sense.
SH

12:27
What makes logical sense?
JW

12:27
Marriage.
SH

12:28
Our marriage?
JW

12:28
Of course. Who else?
SH

12:29
You're proposing to me via text message?
JW

12:29
No. I proposed to you in the flat - Now I'm repeating myself.
SH

12:30
Is this some kind of joke?
JW

12:30
No.
SH

12:31
Honestly?
JW

12:32
I assure you that I am perfectly serious.
SH

12:33
But why? I mean, you don't seem like the marrying sort.
JW

12:33
What is the marrying sort?
SH

12:34
I don't know; someone romantic and sentimental. Your opposite.
JW

12:34
I concede it might seems out of character - but it's a logical move.
SH

12:35
Marriage is logical? I can't wait for this explanation.
JW

12:35
Marriage will bind us legally, clearing up any possible discrepancies.
SH

12:36
If you say so.
JW

12:37
It's true. If I get taken to the hospital or die or some other misfortune then it will ensure you're protected and cared for. It also simplifies financial matters, as we can create a joint account.
SH

12:38
If you die it will be more than just a "misfortune" Sherlock. In fact, my own welfare will be last of my concerns. But it does make sense.
JW

12:38
Of course it does. So?
SH

12:39
So what?
JW

12:40
So what's your answer?
SH

12:40
I don't know. Can't I have some time to think this over? It's a big transition.
JW

12:41
Considering we're already living, working, eating, sleeping together I don't see what the difference is.
SH

12:41
I was being sarcastic.
JW

12:42
Ah - right.
SH

12:45
Yes.
JW

12:45
Yes what?
SH

12:46
You know what.
JW

12:46
Do I?
SH

12:47
Yes you bloody well do!
JW

12:47
Turnabout's fair play John.
SH

12:48
Yes but you know what I'm answering - I didn't know what you were asking.
JW

12:49
True. Cheers then, my future husband.
SH

12:49
I can actually hear your mocking undertone.
JW

12:50
But I'm being perfectly serious. I look forward to being your dearly beloved.
SH

12:51
Shut up.
JW

12:51
Is that any way to speak to your fiancé?
SH

12:52
You're enjoying this way too much.
JW

12:53
Well it's one of the happiest days of my life.
SH

12:54
Stuff it.
JW

12:54
You don't seem as thrilled about it as I am.
SH

12:55
Well I am marrying a sociopath.
JW

12:56
Touché. Oh - 2/7/12.
SH

12:56
What's that?
JW

12:57
The wedding date.
SH

12:57
You've already set the date?
JW

12:58
Certainly. Everything's coordinated. I've talked to the register - We'll go down around 10:00am.
SH

12:58
You set this up before I agreed?
JW

12:59
Yes. I found it extremely unlikely that you would refuse.
SH

1:00
And why is that?
JW

1:01
Because the traditional values which you were raised on make you inclined towards it.
SH

1:01
I'm in a straight man love with another man and spend my days chasing criminals around London, distributing vigilante justice. What traditional values are you referring to?
JW

1:02
Touché.
SH
I've already got a "part two" for this one that should be up no later than Friday. Let me know what you think about this one I'm hoping it's not to OOC for Sherlock but I just loved this idea and it wouldn't leave me alone.

ASdfsdslkfh I've run out of words. This was just.. Gah, I can imagine this happening somehow, because it's so in character and yet so sweet and if I ever manage to stop talking in a high pitched voice I could probably say more but as it is I'm running out of oxygen.... *SQUEEEEE*

:iconbravoplz::iconsaysplz:Very original, and unique... I actually like it!

It definitely brings out the sarcastic qualities of John and Sherlock, with John being the traditional one and Sherlock being the informative one.
Although I think you could have added where they both were at the moment and whether the time was am or pm just to add a little bit of flavor in there...
Other than that, bravo, bravo indeed!

actually I kinda thought of it to be midnight actually, just to add some spin to the story... but I'm just saying you could add in to your upcoming stories if its either am or pm and give a random address in the beginning to signify where they are texting from...

Well in all honesty I prefer to leave details like that up to the reader for my text fics and allow them to fill in the blanks between texts with their own imagination so it has more of a personal touch for them :)
