this whole thing was so adorable. I was awwing so much. their interactions and bond was so strong and real and there. and I ended up reading John's whole blog when you mentioned it but I didn't find the melting laptop.
but actually, reading the blog made reading this even better because I got to see that your characters were very much in character. and that is really cool. writing them well is not easy.
their relationship was very precious and tender and.. well, sufficient to say I liked it

The dialogue here is just great! I'm really enjoying the way you've written this relationship. The shock blanket and "Postcode envy" are exceptional touches.

Yay! We get a look into the marvelous mind of Sherlock Homes in one of the defining moments of his friendship with John Watson. Well done!

Okay. Starting with the criticism:
Grammar. Grammar, grammar, grammar.
Grammar is *so* important. Bad grammar makes good stories impossible to read. Fortunately for your story, it was not good, it was brilliant, so I, one who requires good or at least decent grammar in everything I read, could not help but continue reading this. You have big problems with punctuation and transitions. You have all these flashbacks, and I got lost several times trying to figure out what was 'the present', and what memory or thought had triggered this particular flashback, and so on.
Besides the very technical things, your story is beautiful. Heartfelt, squeal-inducing, amazing. I love it. The last line has me reeling. Because this isn't some soppy line you've made up and put in Sherlock's mouth. It's the *truth*. It's how Sherlock really feels about that perfect, pint-sized hero of his. And I'm sure these thoughts *did* go through his mind after the events of this story. It's so in character, and it's also as sentimental as Sherly gets. As someone who really wants to hear Sherlock say certain things, and struggles with writing him IC, I really respect the job you've done here. Very good indeed.

Aw this was such a cute, fun, funny, heartbreaking, heartwarming, insightful, interesting story. Loved it.

This whole fic is wonderful, but I absolutely LOVED this chapter. I am fascinated by John's character and back story and cling to any scraps of it (in the show or in fanfiction) there are. I also appreciated how you extended upon the kidnapping and its aftereffects on John. Nicely done. All these little friendship moments between the two make me smile.
