I loved it. :)
This whole story I've had this awful feeling that something awful would happen to them, and I'm so, so glad that nothing did.
And of course, the mystery was awesome, as well. I have to admit that the scene with Holmes demonstrating Phrenology on Helen was probably one of my favorite scenes in all of this series.
And I have to admit that I got just the slightest bit teary-eyed as the twins gave their little speech.
Thank you for a great week of reading! :) It is certainly going to be weird not opening these stories to eagerly read on, but I think I'll live, especially knowing that, for now, Holmes and Helen are very happy newlyweds. :D
Again, thank you, and keep writing!

That was- Words cannot fully describe how much I have enjoyed your series of stories. I started reading The Forfeit Daughter late this afternoon and have just finished this final chapter. Your plotting is meticulous. Your characters are extremely well-drawn and true to canon. Your attention for detail is splendid. These bits of praise can scarcely make up the whole of my appreciation for the stories, however. As for Helen- she and King's Russell are currently the only two women I've read paired off with Holmes that actually seem to fit him. In many ways Helen exceeds Mary, in realism for instance. Thank you for writing these amazing stories and I do hope that your promise of a fifth has not been waylaid by real life or other plot bunnies. I am extremely eager to see how you handle the hiatus.

This story is one of squishful awesomeness. It is one of the best I've read on fan fiction.

Must have been well over a year since I read this fantastic story...and having reread it again, it loses none of its exquisite lustre and charm. Bravo!
I must say that I have yet to read a more well-written, well-plotted and believable SH story than this one as well as the fantastic prequels that both of you have written. Although Holmes was never one to be attracted to the fair sex, much less entering a relationship/marriage with one of them, I utterly believed the relationship that blossomed between Helen and Holmes who are both equally well-matched for each other. I'm looking forward immensely to the next part of this 'trilogy' if one may call it and the title: 'Somewhere I Have Never Travelled' sounds extremely interesting and so I hope that you post it soon!
Keep up the good work!

After reading this chapter a second time after reading all of the other stories to provide background, it seems so clear to me now why Helen entertianed Sherlock in breach of regulations. I think it was an interesting view on the relationship as a whole, the couple had taken chances before with forms of public affection and so forth. By the way, let me commend you for choosing Carmen as the opera the pair went to, it is by far my favorite opera and I think it refelcts Holmes perfectly.

This was a fantastic chapter and story in general. well done.

It is about time, those two finally kissed! I was on the edge of my seat until it finally happend, as always a thousand blessings on this fanfic.
| Anna McNarin 4/27/07 . chapter 16
Wowie! I never thought they would make it to the alter. I thought some unforseen occurance would a)kill off Helen, or at least run her off; b)Holmes himself would run her off to save her from the insanity that is his norm. I have been delightfully proved wrong, and am interested in the next installment to be sure.

You are (almost) right, Dodie, you are the only one who's say it. The rest of us, the whole world, think this story is the BEST post in this site.
