| Q chapter 5 . 4/21/2012
First part of chapter: 0.0 Watson, that is a BIG hole. Hilarious dialogue. And Holmes' FACE... XD
Cabbage vs. violins... excellent match-up. I love how you described the cloud as "an invisible yet persistent sulphurous cloud of vegetal origin".
"I say, Holmes, that thing sounds woefully out of tune."
I lost it right there. Poor Mrs. Hudson...
Mating call of the banshee? Awfully appropriate, given the subject matter of this story :)
Why do I have a feeling this won't go as smoothly as expected?
Please update so I can find out!
| Q chapter 4 . 4/21/2012
I don't think I've complimented you on your marvelous writing yet. It flows very well, and the humor is stunningly inserted.
Flowers? (In the spirit of ST: TWOK) PIIIIIIIIIKE!
I have to agree with Holmes'last line :)
| Q chapter 3 . 4/21/2012
Not Pike! Ahahaha... Holmes is heading for trouble.
Thank the Lord for Ms. Hastings.
| Q chapter 2 . 4/21/2012
Kudos to Mrs. Hudson on the excellent revenge :) I have a bad feeling about this though...
| Q chapter 1 . 4/21/2012
At the very beginning when Mrs. Hudson and co. were discussing the eligible bachelor thing, I was like ":D Oh! I know a bachelor!" Holmes' total nonchalance during/after the explosion was hilarious.
"It was then with great reluctance that I handed over the headline that had nothing whatsoever to do with the latest captured arsonist, and everything to do with the Evening Standard's newest eligible bachelor."
Excellent line. My reaction: O.O - XD

Ohohohohoho...*foxy ears pop out of head* You are a devious, devious woman and I love you for it! Can't say I feel sorry for Holmes since if I was there, I would be one of the many women writing an essay to get a chance to go on a date with him. :)
I also love the little 'war' happening between Holmes and Mrs. Hudson on the side. It's cute. Mrs. Hudson deserves to get some revenge for all the things Holmes has done while living with her.
Anyway, can't wait to see who the next 5 women are. I'm going to take a guess here and say that Adler is going to be one of the women. And I have this nagging feeling that Mrs. Hudson will be the last 'date' Holmes is going to have. I'll just have to wait and see :D

I hope you haven't abandoned this story because I didn't review when you uploaded the new chapters last winter. *uses the great big apologetic puppy eyes* This is too brilliant to be abandoned!
| Hijokugei chapter 5 . 3/31/2011
I get the feeling that Holmes will be sorely disappointed.
| Aurora Blackwood chapter 5 . 3/8/2011
I must bow down to you for this is just truely amazing... I even added to my internet favorites, not just in my fanfiction, so that I can access it when I am not on the site.
This story is so in character, so well written, so everything that a fanfiction story should be. Thank you, this is so refreashing for my eyes.
| AutumnAtMidnite chapter 5 . 2/25/2011
THIS! :D :D :D
I take a hiatus from this site for months due to all the non-canonical fic floating around, and this was the first fic I read now that I'm nosing my way back in. My god, it was wonderful! You've got Holmes' character and sense of humour down perfectly, and this was pure joy to read. You've reminded me why I enjoy SH fic so very much. So, thank you :)
| Aurora-cs chapter 5 . 1/18/2011
Ooh, I think Holmes will soon have cause to regret those words! This is coming along brilliantly, looking forward to seeing more
| Lone Star Girl chapter 1 . 12/24/2010
Ooooooooooo Mrs. Hudson got you there Holmes... I should hve seen that coming but I didn't, and that last line made me crack up.
| Innocent Bystander chapter 5 . 12/22/2010
You, my friend, are brilliant. I think "The Worst Landlady in London" is about as close to the perfect fanfiction as one can get. Perfectly timed humor, very true to Doyle's characters, and extremely entertaining. I also want you to know that I greatly appreciated your promise to avoid romance for Holmes.
Thank you, you're brilliant, and I'll be waiting in anticipation for more! :D
"I say, Holmes," I said just before heading down the stairs, "that thing sounds woefully out of tune."
"Does it?" he asked..
(I just about died of laughter right here. PERFECT.)

“You mean it could be worse than implying that you…that you…you've had relations with poor Lydia in the morgue?"
"I assume that you say 'poor Lydia' because Pike is besmirching her reputation, and not because it is I who have supposedly had, as you so delicately put it, Doctor, relations with the fair naturalist?"
For a moment I didn't quite know what to say to Holmes's seemingly insulted tone, and I stammered an inadequate attempt at making amends for causing him offence.
"No! I mean yes! I mean yes, 'poor Lydia' because of Pike, and not because of you having relations with her." ”
Oh. My. God. That’s the best bloody dialogue I’ve ever read! You truly outdid yourself this time, dear! I was laughing my a$$ off when I read Watson dig himself deeper and deeper into a hole on this topic. I mean, the whole bit is pure gold!
I have to say that I also found the sort of passive-aggressive warfare Holmes and Mrs. Hudson are engaged in is also highly amusing. A dead spider, boiling cabbage and now a tuned-out violin for 2 blooming days straight. It’s a war between them, for sure. Dreadful! :D
“… the mating call of the banshee” You are going to kill me with laughter, you know that, right?
Can’t wait for more!

This chapter was superb.
Actually, as I read the last chapter, I was already suspecting that Ms. Hastings won a date on purpose in order to spare Holmes an evening with some overexcited young damsel. Very tactful of her. I also have to say that the famous detective lacked out on his first date, but I somehow think that his luck will change for worse very soon.
Pike’s article seemed downward horrifying. I literally clapped a hand to my mouth as I read it… If I were Holmes, I’d be mortified too.
“A very interesting event, this contest of the Evening Standard will be, if all of Mr. Holmes's ladies receive such intimate attention from the good detective.]”
Oh, no, he didn’t! For crying out loud!
This Pike fellow must have fell off the same tree with the infamous Rita Skeeter. Their methods and ways of expression are disturbingly familiar.
WOW. You rock!
