|Reviews for The Mystery of the Red Violin|
| TheDoubleExposure chapter 1 . 10/15
This fic was recommended to me by AmberLS123, and because I trust her judgement, of course I read it, and I'm so glad I did! This was spectacularly well written. Basil's characterization was spot on and I love the characterization of Brynna and Jonathan. I also liked Tobias. Out of curiosity, was that an Animorphs reference? Even if it wasn't, this was still such a great story! Excellent work!

I have to say, that this is my very favorite GMD fanfiction ever! You are a fabulous writer and gave a very nice take on Basils family. Im not sure if Im fond of Basils name, though it kind of grew on me as the story progressed. And I was also wondering if Basils older brothers name was taken off of Sherlocks older brothers name? Because it seemed like an extended version of Mycroft to me. You captured Basils personality and character amazingly acuratelty! And I just adored how Brynna was the only one who could make him 'behave' and keep him 'under controll', so to speak. Very good job! Keep it up!

Oh, I loved how you keep pulling us deeper into a mystery while still having comments to make about music. I really loved it.

Firstly: "Dr. Finkelstein?" I sense a reference to Tim Burton...
Second: have I left any reviews to your past stories I've favorited? If not, I humbly apologize. If so...I apologize snyway, for forgetting, and must say this: I am thoroughly convinced your GMD stories are among the absolute best, if not THE best.
This is all, and excellent work! "With time so short, I'll say so long and go, so soon, goodbye!" ;)

THIS Story was brilleant. You so Have to make a sequal. Your really good at writting stories and this one has caught my eye. Well Done. Please make a sequal I want to know of the Red violin corrects its mistake or hunts him in another way.
Well Done and keep writting.

Excellent tale, as all your Basil stories are. I'm curious, is it coincidence or sneaky cameo from Animorphs that brings Tobias the red-tailed hawk into this story?

:D Yay, finally found a GMD fic that's NOT a MS :D!
Brilliantly written & great fun to read, & I'm now far later going to bed than I intended to be, but oh well, it was worth it :D!

Master Brett! -lol- Jeremy Brett, my favorite Holmes portrayal (considering i'm an 1980s child, and his SH performance went from 1984-1994, go fig). -laughs- so many references, it's almost as if the two mice ARE our favorite human detective duo. shame that it's not done in the same style as Sir Doyle does it, having Watson (or Dawson, in this case) narrate it but i guess doing it this way works a little better.
and a Strad. -whistles- ex-piano player, the old musical terms still stuck in my head, as well studying. nice touch.
Joshua Bell... maybe not Joseph Bell (guessing), DA man of inspiration for Sherlock but, what the heck.
Dawson as an uncle to the twins? -cackles, then winces- though i don't think i look forward to being called "auntie" (a cousin's got two kids already).
although, quite interesting with adding in a family element for Basil. have you heard of March Hare? she wrote "Baker Street Trio" two-three years back and when i first read it, it was as if the Master (Sir Doyle) was back from the dead (despite being slightly different from traditional Sherlockian/Holmesian canon and style). however, circumstances forced her to take it down due to that "Baker Street Trio" has now been turned to being published as "Elementary, My Dear" under Autumn Sabol (available at Amazon and other online book/media stores). recommended reading, even though there are differences between Basil and Sherlock. check out March Hare's profile, more info there.

well that was an excellent read. i enjoyed it quite a bit. i think it was kinda OOC, except perhaps for Dawson, but i still came away from the story liking it. that was just really good...well...dunno what else to say...bye!

Cybra, I found this story while I was doing a search "The Red Violin" sheet music and I'm glad I did because I loved every minute of it. In fact, I now have the page listed in my "favorites".
You're a very talented writer.

This is such a great adaptation! I cannot believe that it hasn't gotten more reviews! It's very absorbing and well-written!
