This story was awesome! Thanks so much for sharing.

Oh, poor Watson! So sad... but lovely, too.

And as usual, Holmes beats himself up over missing something that a normal person wouldn't have noticed. :) I love the image of him rushing up the stairs! Bad excuse, Mr. Holmes...
I like the "missed a spot shaving" bit! Also the dream; I can fully sympathize with the type. *scowls*
The Eastern blessing was very appropriate, and Watson's words at the end were heartbreaking. Great job!

You handled the conversation about Ellie very well. It really shows the profound friendship these two share.
| Westron Wynde chapter 23 . 2/28/2009
"There was a hard knot in my throat constricting my vocal cords." Yes, me too on reading this chapter. Restrained, yet imbued with deep emotion, their conversation was oh-so bittersweet - and totally IC.
A balanced, nicely-handled piece of writing... and I'm glad that Watson is very much on the mend :)

Well, thank goodness for that - recovery is in sight, even if it wasn't a 'true crisis' (the way he was going though, any sort of crisis must have been a good thing).
A very touching scene between H&W - you wrote that so well :)
Oh, and top marks for the most original simile I've read in a long time - "I felt as dingy as a dustman".

Pardon me while I go cry miserably in a corner now.
| Cat chapter 23 . 2/28/2009
Thanks for another great chapter of this excellent story!

Sure, Holmes, there's no reason for you to finally sleep after wearing yourself out physically, mentally, and emotionally, for almost two weeks, with little food and less rest. No reason at all. *eyeroll*
Much as I like reading well-written angst, I really think this was my favorite chapter so far. Despite the unusualness of the adjective, Holmes was too CUTE in this.
*goes back to re-read*

I keep saying this but poor Watson! Just when he starts to get better something else comes up! Please do update soon!
| AmatorLinguae chapter 22 . 2/26/2009
Sweet, touching, and even a hint of humor. Apologies for the late review! I really like the detail of the chair scraping back. :)
| pebbles66 chapter 22 . 2/25/2009
"You've never seen me that frightened because I've never seen you that ill before". - Aw!
So glad to have an update! And so glad that Watson is getting better at last. Though it sounds like he might have a lengthy recovery. Holmes' concern is so sweet.
*hugs them both*
| Msynergy chapter 22 . 2/25/2009
Poor poor Watson! And Holmes too! At least Watson is gonna make it though! Can't wait to see what happens next!
| Merula-Xati chapter 22 . 2/25/2009
Oh, you have no idea how much better this makes me feel. You really made my day.
| aragonite chapter 22 . 2/25/2009
You tell him, Jackson! Good for you! I bet that would even make Watson smile from his sickbed!
