This was fantastic! The plot flowed well and the dialogue was engaging (not to mention absolutely hilarious at times) without being overwhelming. One of my favourite lines is "Has anyone ever told you your method of living is subject to a gross amount of surprisingly casual nonsense?" I like how you write Watson with a backbone–many people don't, and it takes away from the character. Your deductions are fantastic as well! I loved the parts about the shoelaces and the wood varnish. Everything in this story was cohesive, and the characters were brilliantly written. I've read a Study in Scarlet, but I actually forgot who the murderer was while I was reading! Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable literary experience, and I wish you all the best of luck in your future writing endeavours. God bless!

Brilliantly done! Thank you!

Hey there. Great story! I love the way you interweave the books and the tv series, both in terms of character and plot. It kept me guessing nicely. One small piece of criticism, which I hope you won't object to: be more careful with your use of apostrophes (especially it's/its and Holmes'/Holmes's). There were only a few errors, but I found them rather distracting, and it's a pity to allow little things like that to detract from what is in all other instances an excellent piece of story-telling. I look forward to reading more from you! Cheers. :-)

That's it? C'mon, you gotta write a sequel! This was hilarious! Holmes' character was certainly different, but I'm not complaining, it wasn't a bad change. Watson's snappy attitude was welcome addition, though I guess you see that at the movies. Amazing!

I feel that if Doyle was alive (and if he had not hated Holmes), he would have considered your writing as an eloquent threat to his throne of Holmesian literature. Thank you so much for posting this! Your characterisation and banter flowed incredibly well; the humour was present without being stifling and I wish I could download this.
I also like that you incorporated reminders that this was set in the 21st century without sacrificing any of Holmes's Bohemian nature.
Thank you again.

I love this story...in fact this is the second or third time I've read it, so I thought I should overcome my laziness and finally write you a review!
You do a great job with Holmes and Watson...you seem to know their characters very well. Also I should say that I really love your writing style. I haven't read many of your other fics because I'm not too familiar with those fandoms, but I've taken a peek and was not disappointed. You are a very talented writer, and I hope to read more of your work soon. I'm even considering watching some new TV shows just so I can read more of your stories!
Thank you for the hours of entertainment and the beautiful writing...I hope you're out there getting paid for this in some capacity-you deserve it!

Brilliant. Just brilliant. Oh Holmes! Oh Watson...

I enjoyed this.
You hooked me from the first chapter, and I can’t imagine that there are many readers in the fandom who wouldn’t continue on once they’d started – that was a masterful introduction in style, content and characterisation (little things like what it is that Watson – quite knowingly – gets out of his gambling, ring true, and make a kind of sense that had never occurred to me before).
The characterisation and modernisation of both Holmes and Watson, apart and together, really works, and was a pleasure to read.
I do have to admit that it felt more like an AU of the original source than of the movie – I did try to shift my vision back, but the characters refused to co-operate (I can’t get my mind’s eye to follow the movie casting), so I hope you don’t mind that my mental filing system dockets it ‘wrongly’.
Nice, work, thanks – I look forward to re-reading it when next the yen strikes me.

Every time I find my interest in Sherlock Holmes revived (which happens about once a year, thanks to movies and TV), I reread this story. It remains my favorite adaptation of Holmes into the modern era-in any medium. I just wanted to review again to let you know.

Please, write another of these! Even if it is ony a short case, please keep going, this universe and these characters are really intriguing me. Even if I have read about them so many times before, they are some of my favorites, and I love this new modern setting. Oh no, I sound like I'm talking about a house! Seriously, though, I really mean it, and I really want to read more about them.

What, not Simpsons? I'm really enjoying this, a nice mix of canonical and modern. I love the banter that goes on between the two. It is hilarious!

Beating the corpses? Wow, that sounded so similar to Sherlock! Have you seen Sherlock?
| Randomuso chapter 1 . 7/24/2012
This is some great stuff! I'm loving your clever style of writing-you are building the relationship between Watson and Holmes brilliantly, and character development for Watson is really well done.
Beautiful writing, can't wait to read more. :)

Incredible story! I will definitely be checking all of them!
| Auzzies chapter 14 . 6/8/2012
I'm not sure if you still receive these, (or even read them, for that matter,) but I really wanted to stop by and let you know that it was truly a pleasure to read this. The characters are very well written, and even if it is just a retelling, it was a fantastic read.
(And I'm ecstatic that it ended on a bromantic note. The bromance is one of the best things about these stories.)
Thank you for taking the time to write and post this story. I wish you luck in your future writings.
