I know that (at the time) 5'5'' might be too tall for a woman but damn you I'm 5'7''! I should be considered a giant! xD anyway. I like th cases and stuff but I would likeit if the got a little more personal and I don't mean Cat pestering him about his addiction. I mean like...I don't know. baybe Sherlock could ask her about her problems for once. on in a sweet way obviously. In the Sherlock way. That bit about that tea helping with isomnia was my favorite part!

and cue Holmes interfering in someway like stalking them in one of his disguises or scaring Nathan Perry away somehow. this is going to be fun. and i think Holmes was being a bit odd around Catherine because she might have looked like Irene a bit. that's my theory at least. great story, i'm loving it! and i son't really like first person POV stories, but you've got something good here so don't stop writing it! update soon! :D

I just thought you should know that because you've filled your summary space on the forum, or archive, with your updates, the passerby doesn't have any idea what your story is actually about.
I don't mean to insult you; it is good to put up info like that, but just that you know. Anyhow. It seems like the story itself is well written, with a good plot, and of a good length, so in that aspect, bravo!

Hm. Your OC is quite fantastic.

Ooo I liked this chapter! I think it's awesome how you have her challenging Holmes!

Rofl! I love this chapter so much! It's still funny, even on the third and fourth reread. It's this kind of interaction and excellent writing that makes this story so enjoyable.

LOL! I love their meeting! Reading it over again still made me smile, even though I'm not feeling my best right now. And nice job tidying this up. It feels cleaner and easier to follow.

Haha, you have such an awesome way of writing these two! (I LOVE it!) Especially Sherlock's prickly demeanor. Cannot wait to see more of your lovely work. Update soon!

Lovely! I really enjoy their bantering; it's captivating to read, and as always, I am amazed that you are able to write the perspectives of two such intellectual beings. Everything is spot on! I don't know how you do it, but it's amazing regardless! I cannot wait for the next chapter nd encourage you to keep going; I really love this story!
However, I was wondering... will we hear about the dinner with Mr. Rochester or the self defense training with Holmes? I am sincerely looking forward to both, probably more so to the latter. I can't wait to see how the situation plays out!

i read your whole story yesterday and I instantly fell in love! I apologize for the lack of reviews(i generally try to review every chapter i read especially the super fantastic stories like yours) I have been logged out of my account for a while (my computer hates me) therefore am just going to go ahead and review as a guest until i can log back onto my account. I absolutely love your adaptation of the sherlock holmes movies. I admire the way you incorporated the movies' events so smoothly and believe that you are truly in character with the writing (which is a glowing achievement considering this is Sherlock Holmes that we're speaking of). I am amazed by your accuracy and thoroughly enjoy your writing style. I hep that you continue to update and I plan to follow and favorite this story as soon as I can get my account back up. Keep writing!

Hi! I saw your post on the Writers Unite! Facebook page, asking for feedback on your story. I really love Sherlock Holmes stories so I thought I would check it out.
Your summary is intriguing, I really enjoyed it. However, when I began the story, I wasn't really sure who's point of view I was reading. Your writing is beautiful, both descriptively and grammatically (I especially loved the description of the insomnia your character was experiencing), but it took me four paragraphs before I realized we were inside the head of your OC and not, for example, Watson, or perhaps (though it makes me shudder to think it) a badly written Holmes.
Luckily that was not the case. I would have liked a little more physical description (and a name) for your OC. Just a few details can make the character more real for the audience. It's not necessary to describe her in detail, but a few tidbits of information can go a long way toward creating the character in your audience's imagination. I also found her relationship with Holmes to fall a bit flat because I had no context to put their relationship in. How long has she been living at Baker Street? What was her relationship with Holmes like before this night? I didn't feel we were given enough information going into their first scene together to really get a sense of what kind of reception we could expect for her into 221B.
That being said, I thought you captured Holmes brilliantly! The superiority, the aloofness, and yet the interest in your OC, the curiosity, all came across beautifully. And his arrogant assumption that now Watson is gone, she will naturally take the doctor's place, whether she wants to or not, was spot on.
All in all, I think you have a good base to work on, but it could do with a little bit of tweaking to really capture your audience and keep them clicking for the next chapter. I hope I helped, and if anything I have said offends you, or you would like clarification, please feel free to PM me, I'm more than happy to help if I can! :)
