When its sherlock jumping and his return its always about john and HIS feelings and his alone is annoying

This was wonderful deduction by John. I really love fics where John sees how willing sherlock was to protect him, and even without a recording on top of the rooftop, you managed to do just that. Thank you!

I truly loved this story!
Still have to read "Something Borrowed" but I do hope that you kind of redeem Mycroft because I find it hard to believe that he really bears ill will to his little brother. Like every other human being he might have made mistakes and taken wrong decisions but I just won't believe he put Sherlock in harms way on purpose.
Best wishes, D.

These last chapters just ripped my heart out. Hits close to home as sadly, not long ago I had two family members who died this way (and I mean exactly that- one from a gunshot to the head and the other from jumping off a 12 story building).
Strangely, even though it's difficult to watch, The Reichenbach Fall is so beautifully acted by Benedict and Martin that it's become my favorite episode.
What I'm trying to say is that I've been reading a lot of Sherlock stories the last few months and the feelings and emotions you convey in this story are pitch perfect. I really and truly cried hard by the time I finished this chapter. Simply outstanding writing.

'I've been grieving for a computer.' What a brilliant line. And isn't this a scene we all wanted to see. And what did John do then? Now we know. How complex, how revealing. How scary and how honest. That's the way it is when you walk the battlefield with Sherlock Holmes

A very good and interesting Redbeard line. Very revealing about both brothers. Very good on their relationship, quite moving too. Facing facts, facing their difference from other people, and what it means and achieves. Good stuff.

Good chapter, true and accurate process of what is a transit and a difficult period to live through or to write and maintain action and tension, which this , as always, some very interesting details and touches
| O'Donnell chapter 10 . 7/17/2016
Ah yes - 'Continue.' 'WHAT?' Excellent stuff. So what else can Mycroft do...even though John commenting is not really helping, even though he (both hes?) think it is. Lovely stuff.
What a great way to make work 'You didn't get me out - I got me out.' Superb. Well done. Great last paragraph.

A good view from both sides, brother to brother. Diplomacy, intelligentce and action, from sophisticated to brutal. Very good!

A quiet conversation in the dark - and John still having the instinct that the connection to Sherlock is still there. Oh yes, precisely , isn't it? This reads just the way it could have been, should have been even. And he still cannot saya goodbye. Anyone, who has ever lost anyone, knows how that feels, and how impossible it is to actually say goodbye. Absolutely are ever so proud of John Watson.

Great storytelling. Great objectivity, follow through and thought processes. How icy the two brothers can be to each other. Very interesting and intriguing reading.
| O'Donnell chapter 6 . 7/17/2016
Hmmmn. This is sweet and tender and moving and a proper moment stolen out of time. I love Sherlock's relationship with Molly because it is so honest and quiet and true, exactly as here. That moment with the two of them warm and safe inside Sherlock's coat is just perfect. Can I come in too?
| O'Donnell chapter 5 . 7/17/2016
The beauty of this is that it is a conversation, not a tribute. It has a lovely rise and fall, and a proper flow to it. And there are some wonderful, heartbreaking lines. Anyone would love to have this eulogy. And it says an awful lot about the person delivering it too. Heartbreaking.
| O'Donnell chapter 4 . 7/16/2016
Oh this is good. Very Sherlock, very Molly. Very much the right action fore the right time and very stiff upper lip. Just as you would expect. Breathless reading.

What an amazing line - 'doing a favour for a pariah.' Oh, wow. Poor, poor Greg. Well, this is exactly how it would have been, isn't it? Wow again.
