It would appear I have been remiss in the past regarding commenting. I came across this in my fav's and was enthralled all over again at your brilliant writing style. I love your canon portrayal of the characters in this one. It was a fantastic piece. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this and sharing it with us all.

I can not express how much I love these two. They are the perfect friends. :)

Aww, you managed to make me cry just with that last sentence ; and I actually tried not to cry again, but it couldn't be helped. It was so sweet and still in character for Holmes that it just broke my poor heart :P

Again, a time machine and a mind reader, I swear.

Okay. *throws up hands in defeat* I swear, if I didn't know better, you had both a time machine and a mind-reader, and had gone back in time to read Holmes' thoughts and write them up for us. Because this chapter is that perfect.

Tears of happiness!

It keeps being good!
I love how you can give Holmes emotions without it seeming strange. He really does care about Watson, but he can so rarely show it. With these scenes we get a really touching look into his true feelings.

I absolutely love this. It is so perfect, and brings tears to my eyes. I love how Holmes is so distraught, and how Watson understands him and what he needs.
This just makes me want to hug everyone within reach :)

Your stories are utterly brilliant. They are well written, true to character (as far as I know), and enthralling. I am trying to make my way through all of them, and it is well worth it. There are so good, I am unfortunately neglecting my schoolwork to read them.

Another one I found while trying to shuffle through your many H&W FFs... Very touching! I always tried to imagine if they ever talked about that night, you did a good job.
| Sarai chapter 2 . 2/26/2009
I like it. Which story is Alphie introduced in?
| Tristan-the-Dreamer chapter 2 . 11/17/2008
I liked how you described Holmes' hands being almost too shaky to hold a cigarette! Also how you put in description about hout Watson feels when he wakes up from morphine.
I think I'm weirdly picky about ending sentences, because I feel the same way for this chapter as for "Blood on His Hands" just like the last words are beads on a necklace, and I, for some obsessive reason, want to unstring the necklace and put the BLUE bead to the LEFT of the orange, if you get my meaning...
But I liked it on a whole, of course.

Very painful, when Holmes called his life "empty" it was a knife to me...and for once his love for drama has gotten him in serious trouble.
It was strange to read of an old and comforting pipe; I had never thought of a pipe being like that, like an old sweater you know well, but it makes perfect sense!
