|Reviews for It's been an honor, Captain|
| BlindViolinist chapter 21 . 2/13
You did the thing. Just. You. I laughed hysterically even while something vital was cracking in half. "Let's get down to business." "To defeat the Huns?" I had to take a break and-I couldn't handle it.
Also, sweet angst and blood and battle and I never would have suspected the Cap. Jack Harkness guest appearance. Somebody's gotta shoot the bad guys when John and Greg are down, I suppose. I sort of wish Mycroft had shot Moran down, though, just to show My can do more than multitask and make tech support wet themselves.
Either way, I am delighted that the tale is nearly finished, it's been a fabulous read.

I loved this! GAH! I extremely enjoyed this and am now sleep deprived, but happier for it if that makes sense. Thank you for writing this.

That. Was. Absolutely. Spectacular WOW oh my goodness gracious when I first clicked on this fic I was pretty doubtful just because the general plot outlined in the description sounded interesting but a bit cheesy. I am certain that many other people who would have tried to write something along the same lines wouldn't have even scraped the surface of what you created. You gave it just enough sap to give me fangirl attacks, but didn't smother it with honey and unnecessary 'chick flick' moments. It had the perfect amount of angst and almost as much johnlock as I could have ever hoped for :)
Just a small tip, and it's just a technical thing, but I'm a grammar freak, so please pardon my nit-picky-ness. There were several occasions where you used 'to' instead of 'too' (I know that's the lamest thing that you want in your review box but whatever). Also, specifically in the first few chapters, there were places where I think Ms. Hudson's name was supposed to go, but there was no name there. I just wanted to let you know :)
ANYWAYS the fic was absolutely marvelous and YOU HAVE TO DO A FIC ABOUT THE AFTERMATH OF THIS UH DUH THEY DIDN'T EVEN KISS THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO IT OKAY OKAY
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY 3

It isn't italics missing...it's "Mrs. Hudson " every time it should say Mrs. Hudson, it doesn't ... like the name's just being erased automatically. Good story other than technical difficulties.

Epic. I wish this was how it happened in yhe series. I was almost predictable that sherlock would be the one to fake his own death, where as quite, safe, steady John wouldn't do something like that. The way you have written emotions and the characterisation is brilliant. Very very realistic. I cannot wait for the next chapter and definitely cannot wait for the big reunion! Well done and good luck! Xxx

Damn you. I wanted to read this but, you have no idea how to use any sort of formating do you? Block writting is impossible for anyone to read. Please learn to use the 'Enter' key. And improve your grammar and word choices. Thank ye kindly. I didt truly want to read this.

There's a lot of words missing...maybe the words that were supposed to be italics? Keep up the writing. It's a good idea!

Welcome back, friend! It had been quite a while; the tea has gone cold.
First off, our beloved Watson. Your description of his grief was very attentive, great details. I especially liked "Dark hair hung in his dead eyes" and the hate "etched itself under his fingertips, leaking and crawling and overtaking as it slithered into his blood". Spine tingling.
Next, Royal. I sort of saw that coming(blond hair). Is it safe to assume Royal is Moran?
Finally, our dear Sherlock who won't give up. There's plenty of opportunities for an escaped consulting detective, the finale's foundation is really building.
I must say, this is one of my all-time favorite Sherlock fics, thank you.

This is great! Really fun idea. Britpick note : a stone is 14lb, so you had Sherlock lose 70lb the first week or so after John's "death ". It is always stone singular or plural never stones. Thank you for putting more spaces between paragraphs..the first chapters were harder to read. Thank you for sharing this story

Fantastic, just completely fantastic.
This story has developed so well from the first update to the most recent words. The attention to detail and sound structure is astounding, creating awesome and realistic imagery. Your study of emotional trauma, reaction, aftermath, is truly spectacular. What really makes this fic, however, is your characterization, the fabulous characterization. Your characters are so, so real. I really feel for our boys, what's happened, what their going through, how ridiculously blind they both were while in perfect bliss.
John. I absolutely adore John. The way he shut away his emotion in order to burn Moriarty's network to the ground, to go through watching Sherlock crumble every Wednesday, obtain serious injury with mild irritation, do everything he could so Sherlock would be safe, it broke my heart. The gory humor in his missions(frying pan, crazy multilingual chaos, disguises-just yes) were a perfect distraction from the constant emotional trauma.
Sherlock, however, I nearly cried. Our endearing, rude, elegant Sherlock went through all the stages of grief, and it was agony. Seeing him decay so slowly, it trampled my already broken heart. You officially have the reins on my emotions.
I must mention the British government personified. I've always had a love/hate relationship with Mycroft. He is such a powerful figure, but you've broken down much of his thoughts, concerns, wants; you've made him human. I must applaud you on how well his view was written, your Mycroft is very wonderful.
In short, your writing is more than spectacular. I have enjoyed every bit, no matter how much angst. I remember back in February how excited I was to find this fic, and the development has just made me so happy. I love your writing, just everything. Your scenes within Sherlock's mind were particularly fantastic; the imagery and detail, just beautiful.
I can sense the end is near, and that saddens me-its been a great ride. Thank you for sharing this with the world, it was beautiful.
