I'm confused. According to their conversation, they are in the Sherlock Holmes BBC world - the actual and movie version Sherlock did not live in a time of airplanes. However, they're all talking like it's still 1880. What gives? Plus, I appreciate that it's done to draw the reader in to a particular attitude and time period, but this phrasing is extraordinarily tedious to read. There's a reason I prefer fanfic and films to the actual books.
I'm definitely interested in what happens next, but I don't understand these discrepancies.

I am quite impressed I haven't read such a well blended story in a while.
I am have some trouble with the excerts are they out of the linear time while some are I must admit I was lost at times because of the excerts. I eagerly await more chapters and how this all plays out. I have yet to read much of Sherlock but what I have and I do admit it's not much and I want to read them you have captured the writing style so well and blending it with the up univers so well it becomes a compelling read that isn't bogged down with unnessaccey characters that become to much to keep track.
I would like to leave a longer review but it seems I must read this story again to get all the subtleties. I do have a small request that you could send your version of the time line I'm going to try and work it out but would like to have something to back up my hypotheses.
Till next time my your pin stay ever sharp and your mind never dull.

This is an awesome story! Well written with a good plot.
But I can honestly say, I don't consider it complete...

"he shook hi shead" should be "he shook his head"
| Guest chapter 9 . 7/13/2012
"t his words, McGonagall thought back." beginning of sentence is missing
| Guest chapter 3 . 7/13/2012
"Midas Sight" is really overpowered and way too different from canon spells.
| Guest chapter 20 . 7/12/2012
I like the way te dynamic between Harry and Holmes scwritten
| Sora the Taske chapter 20 . 7/11/2012
Interesting, can't wait to see what happens next.
| Aerialis chapter 20 . 7/10/2012
Incredible! That was an awesome tale you spun, seriously. I was particullary fascinated by Quirrell character I think this one was the best I ever saw. Are you thinking in expanding his backstory? Though his ending did have closure... I'll be on watch for future releases.

This was amazing. You have really captured Watson's original voice, as well as Holmes. I like the new set up, and dearly wish that you will continue this at some point in the future!

I love the whole story from the beginning to the end! I think it's the best crossover I've ever read. Holmes and Harry were my favourite characters since my childhood, and I enjoy crossovers about them.
I like detailized description of characters and how they reflect on their past, especially Dumbledore.
Putting Harry, Hermione and Neville to the Ravenclaw house (without stupid Ron) pleased me, because after Gryffindore Ravenclaw is my favourite one)
Also, adding excerpts from Watson's book was a brilliant idea! It's really written in a canonical, Watson style...
I need to say that your Quirell is awesome! It's a pity that he died in the end, but it was the death of a hero...
I know you were not planning to write a sequel, but it would be great to know, what happens next)
Oh, I wish all your story would be canon)
P.S. mainstreet52, who reviewed your fanfic, wrote: "perhaps Moriarty has a wizard/witch for a child?" Really, maybe, professor could raise Draco Malfoy?
| ShadowedHand chapter 20 . 6/15/2012
I really like this story. It has a lot of depth. : )
| MandibleBones chapter 20 . 6/12/2012
This may be the best AU I've read. It's certainly one of the better crossovers for both series. I somewhat wish this were canon.

As a former Holmes addict, abet given up long ago, this is a seductive opening chapter.
| MKaede chapter 20 . 6/10/2012
this was truly one of the most exceptional crossover fanfics i have ever read - it was simply brilliant and hooked me right from the start. the character development and scenarios you have written were realistic and the small details in the story (quirrel and the sorting hat) make it an ingenious piece of work.
it's a shame that it ended in 20 chapters. will you, by any chance, be posting a sequel?
