I have reread this fanfic today for what is about the easily the tenth time now and I just have to say that despite 3 seasons later and actually having had Irene Adler on the show and having read other Sherlock/Irene fanfics and such, this one /STILL/ is one of my top fanfic for them ever (and fanfic in general too). It's amazing. I don't know if you know this and I don't want to pressure you to finish this or anything, but I wanted to let you know that a lot of people love this fanfic on Tumblr. The people who ship Sherlock/Irene are a lot now and I always rec them this fanfic to read if they like AUs and so many people have started fanart and fanmixes because of it as well as their own headcanons. It's just that amazing. And I just wanted to let you know this.
If you ever finish this, I can assure you there a lot of people who would be ready to read it no matter what the outcome is or now that we're 3 season in of the show. But if not, that's cool too. No pressure or anything, honestly! I just wanted to let you know that this is STILL one of my favorite fanfics ever and that it's pretty popular among shippers till this day!

Well. How do I put this.
I have just reread this story for the fifth time, I think. I come back to it every few months and yet, I still cannot get over how beautifully written it is. I just cannot comprehend it. Your portrayal of both Sherlock and Irene, and especially of their relationship is so captivating that I cannot help myself - I just need to read it once in a while. It is haunting, complex, twisted, disturbing, devastating, cruel, and utterly mesmerising. I am so fascinated with this story, with its vision of startling, raw beauty in something so damaged.
I am just going to say one thing: please, please, continue. I am a long time lurker here, at the , but I very rarely comment. However, I cannot stand the thought of you abandoning this story. I hope there is still a chance of you working on it.

I hope you haven't forgotten about this fanfic because I just reread and just ugh. Perfect.
I hope with the S2 of Sherlock having already aired you would want to finish this :)

You must update this story! It's simply marvelous! Everything about it is just perfect :3 Please update soon!

I wonder whether you might be tempted to post the next chapter by the reappearance of Sherlock on BBC1? Please do. It's been as much agony waiting for your next instalment as waiting for series 2! I hope it's just because you're enjoying uni too much. But don't forget us!

Oh, this story is completely stunning. I've been blown away by it! Please post the last chapter! You've got the characters down so wonderfully I want to know what happens!

...I am in love with this story.
| rememberedenx3 chapter 6 . 3/1/2011
I can't properly articulate what I'm feeling after reading the last two chapters. I've already taken a moment to make sure I'm still breathing.
I am FLOORED by this fic. I don't even know how to describe why I love it so much, it's so rich, and heartbreaking, and devastating, and you've painted the picture so unbelievably well, I can only sit back and gush incoherent phrases, trying not to explode with emotion. The dialogue, the memories, the dark glimpses into Sherlock's reasoning-it's all perfect.
I can't wait for more. && while I do, I'll just keep rereading this :)

They have such an ease with each other, I'm flailing over how wonderfully damaged they are together.
| rememberedenx3 chapter 2 . 3/1/2011
Oh. This is stunning. I've only completed the first two chapter so far, but I feel like I'm about to explode, so I have to say this:
Your characterization of Sherlock is breathtaking. You haven't forgotten his antisocial or arrogant tendencies, but you also are expanding on the theory that he hasn't always been this way, that something triggered it...&& I love that you're making Irene the reason. I've never read stories where they met when they were younger, but it works so well. Fickle fickle fickle, she's like a little sociopath herself, very charming but also very much like Sherlock. I love it! I can't wait to read more! :)

OK, please don't leave me hanging here! You have to write more! This is beyond great...
| bgm76 chapter 4 . 2/10/2011
Holy crap, this is good! 2 more chapters left to read...maybe you'll have another posted by the time I'm finished? :-) I can only hope...
I love the relationship you've set up between Sherlock and Irene. It's something I've never imagined before but it does seem to fit. Irene with her daddy issues, both with their boredom issues. The dialog is amazing. Very raw but so real. The darkness, the biting wit, the competitiveness, and yet the underlying need that's always there. Wonderful! Please write more! Soon!

I just reread this fanfic and I love it so much, it's just perfect. I'm anxious to see the conversation of Sherlock and Irene. Hope you update soon :)
