As a fellow Sherlokian as yourself, I refuse to let this beautiful piece of writing stop here. I honestly and truly can say this is one of the most beautifully and well-written pieces of writing I have read. Ever. Please keep writing. It’s 2018, the world needs some laughter in it.

I know it's been forever. Damn, like literally 11 years since you posted this. I knew you on the old Holmesian board and I was hoping to get in touch somehow.
I know this may sound weird, but I think I read this story at least twice a year and I always wonder how you are doing (and of course, how the story was going to go). Can I tell you my theory? I think Maggie is related to Moriarty in some way which is why she can see Holmes- Moriarty died at the falls along with Holmes which means something about them is connected. Also, I really want to see Maggie try to experiment with like magnets and lights and go all ''paranormal investigator'' on Holmes just to see if they can find ways for Holmes to interact with the physical world. I would love to see the relationship between them deepen- not necessarily romantically, though I don't mind either way. I like Maggie a lot and your Holmes is terribly endearing.
Anyway, I just hope you are alive and okay out there. Despite me just being some rando internet person I think about you from time to time and I hope for the best for you. Your story has stayed with me these past 11 years and I owe you for that. Take care!

Thanks! This was really great!

I would just like to say I read your fic several years ago and have just recently re-discovered and re-read it, and have been reminded why I enjoyed it so much. You obviously have a great affection for the source material (though in my humble opinion it is easy to love) and your OC is as 3-D as could be desired. You build suspense around your characters (both borrowed and otherwise) without sacrificing empathy or humor. I wish more Sherlock-inspired fanfic would demonstrate the touch of classicality you have instilled in yours.
I, of course, would like to know what happens next (especially after the morbidly intriguing cliff-hanger) but I realize it has been several years and, alas, real life tends to intervene.
So, while I hope you might be inspired to write again, I wish you, regardless, a wonderful day.

Amazingly written! You've gotten Holmes down perfectly, and Maggie is a highly-enjoyable character. Their developing relationship certainly is an intriguing one.
I know it's been several years, but is there any possibility that you could continue this story? Of course, though, real life always comes first, so either way, thank you for writing such an enjoyable piece of fanfiction to occupy my night. :)

I can't help pressing the "follow"button in the hopes that you will return to this story someday. It's absolutely brilliant and I want to know how in the world it ends. Why IS Maggie the only one that can see Holmes? Why is Holmes bound to the magnifying glass?
| severusfangirl13 chapter 10 . 3/5/2015
I have been enjoying your story immensely so far, and am absolutely curious as to where it is headed. I do hope you return soon as I am so attached to your character and your portrayal of the ghostly Holmes.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, IF YOU ARE STILL ALIVE, FINISH THIS STORY!
I really, really love this story - you are one of the top (if not THE top) writer on this website. I am a huge Holmes fan, of the original stories. I think you have Holmes's character down solid.
Best regards to you. Amazing work - it just needs to be finished!
| Guest chapter 10 . 5/29/2014
Nooooo, don't stop! PLEASE continue! Not only is this a great story, you ended on a cliffie!
I love your Holmes. He's exactly how I imagined him.
Please continue this fic!
| Shadows Concealed In Darkness chapter 10 . 1/2/2014
Please continue! It's such an amazing story! I love it! :D
Please, it's been almost four years, please update. *puppy-face*

Cool, she was reading 'A Wrinkle In Time'! I love that book!
This was a great chapter by the way, with the beginning of a case ad all. :)
| Marsupial Madness chapter 10 . 3/15/2013
I hope you're still keeping this up! I would love to read more! I think, if you do continue it, you should put in a chapter where Holmes wants to find out what became of Watson... When he died and whatnot. I would also like to see this completed. Will he ever return home? How was he trapped in the magnifying glass? And what does he think of the bbc version of Sherlock? Hopefully, Holmes will never see the fan art...

This is a great chapter. I love maggie's sense of humor. Keep up the good work!
| Jo Jinn chapter 10 . 12/23/2012
I'd imagine that you've long sinced moved on from this story, but I sincerely hope that you are still writing other things, as you are very talented. Combining Sherlock Holmes with a character of your own creation is by no means easy, and you have done it very well indeed.
I still very much enjoy coming back to this story.
| Blue chapter 10 . 8/25/2012
I know that you probably aren't looking at the reviews for this story, and have probably moved on, but I just want/need to say that this is the BEST Sherlock Holmes fanfiction I have ever read. You've managed to keep his character accurate, and it's clear that you've done research (I see you've read the Baring-Gould annotated versions). So, even if you haven't written since 2010, please revive this story. It's too good to go on a permanent hiatus.
