While I don't usually care for stories written from an OC perspective, the fact that you kept this so focused on the main characters was fantastic. I loved the portrayal through both the dialogue and the descriptions. It was a wonderful read.
Thank you for all the time, effort, and creativity that went into this fic. I look forward to reading more.

And a nice beginning to kick off an auspicious career of SH fanfiction. I normally shy away from OCs, but this miss Jenkins was well-handled and fit nicely into things without taking over the spotlight, as so many OCs are prone to do.
The conversation between Holmes and Watson in the beginning is quite sweet. The one issue that I have with it (I know, I keep bringing up reviews with 'just one thing') is when Holmes refers to Watson as his Boswell. If Doyle is the one writing the stories then the comparison, and thus the term of endearment, fall flat - Boswell being a reference to James Boswell, famous as the biographer of Samuel Johnson.

Of course it's every Sherlock Holmes fan's dream to meet the beloved characters. And I love the fanfics that are about Sir Conan Doyle's writings. I wish there was more of him in this fanfic.
Anyway, I see that most fans are frustrated by the fact that Watson is just the Character Voice of the stories. But we have to accept the fact that Conan Doyle used him as Viewpoint Character, whether we like it or not! *sigh*
It was a lovely piece of writing. Good for Miss Jenkins for meeting and even helping Holmes and Watson!

You have just portrayed a lot of Sherlockinas' and Holmesians' deepest wish.
This is great, I love it!
Keep it up, please!

Oh, this was ingenious! Inserting an OC in a way that doesn't completely take over the story made it good, and then setting it so that Holmes and Watson were real made it even better.
Couple things that need to be worked on, however...
When Miss Jenkins runs after the two with the wallet, she'd be using their last names. It take a lot of familiarity to call someone by their first name in Victorian England.
And I think Miss Jenkins would have an escort of some sort as well. But other than that, really good. Keep writing!

Huh. How neat, I really liked this. Definitely, one of my favourites! :)
You really have a knack for writing, you should really write more Sherlock Holmes stories! :)
