That was... for lack of a more descriptive word, adorable. I loved it. The end was so sweet. Great story.

You have exceded yourself. This was an unexpected sequel but your metaphors really are shining. This story is going on my favourites, my dear Tristan.

That is such a lovely story...the butterfly motif is amazing. I also love the comparison of Holmes and Watson to waves. Very peaceful, thank you so much.

That is probably the most beautiful, peaceful thing I've read in months.

Your imagery is sheer poetry: from the caterpillar to the butterflies to the rabbit-ghosts to the shallow water, the only word for it is magical. It's been a while since I faved a story in this fandom, but this one definitely is going on my list. Thank you for writing it.

What a wonderful read! Thank you so much for sharing.

Melancholy but sweet...and too close to home.

I have heard someone say that before-that he felt his work was done-and he died not long after...

Lovely story, though...especially the butterflies leitmotif.

This was kind of cute, not quite angst but more with life itself, which is a mystery ;)

It was just what I needed right now, it lifted my spirits in it's own mysterious way. It was very well written! :)

Oh. YOu know, about halfway through this I got very worried and wanted to PM you but then you made it alright. But then again it was all okay again. I love the expression "mental stargazing"- I think I do it, or if I don't, I might try to think about myself a little more than I think about the other people in my head, real and less real.

I'm very philosophical now so I think I might PM you.

Were you stargazing when u wrote this. Ha ha! Just kidding. Good story, lovely, keep on writing.

Sad but sweet :)

Thank you

Not the happiest of topics for a fic, but you skillfully kept it from being depressing. I now feel content and peaceful myself after reading the ending. Well done!

And I love, love, love the bit about the flowers.

A bittersweet story. Thank you so very , very much for sharing it.
Westron Wynde chapter 1 . 8/29/2009
A quiet and introspective story, and yet all those gloomy thoughts are somehow dispelled by a strong feeling of hope. The comparison with the flowers was a masterstroke. And in the imagery of the two of them at the end stargazing together is just perfect.
KCS chapter 1 . 8/29/2009
That was lovely, there's no better word to describe it. We see so few post-war stories where they're both retired, and usually they're far too sad to read. This had just the right balance of thought-provoking melancholy and peacefulness.

I love Holmes's comparison to the flowers, and the mental star-gazing imagery was pure brilliance. Thank you for this!
