Great story. Lestrade is awesoem! And john was so sweet to try and take care of him Sherlock too, in his own sociopathicn way. Really well done

wow! jajajaja the last part made me laugh
This was his world now, he realized. Men spied on one another, kept secrets from one another, and broke the law for one another - and those were the good guys.
And whatever Mycroft turned out to be, John was grateful that the elder Holmes was on their side
a really nice story... thank you for posting!

good story. thanks for sharing.
| The Buzz chapter 1 . 8/25/2012
This story is absolutely fantastic. You capture the characters brilliantly-I love how you wrote everyone's reactions to the footage and John and Lestrade's conversation at the end. And of course stoic, suffering, determined Lestrade. Thanks for sharing!

Once again I thank you for writing a story, because it's a dynamic I've longed to see explored, written with talent and deference to the core characters as the BBC et al presented them. You are fantastic.

Good one! Well-crafted and executed, brilliant!

I really cannot say enough how much I love the three-way bromance you've grown between Sherlock, John and Greg in these fics XD There was a bit of it going on in Hounds of Baskerville, which was fun, but canon never really developed it to the extent that you have here XD It's quite touching, how much Lestrade will put up with to protect Sherlock... and that John and Sherlock will let him, trying more subtle methods to protect him, for the sake of his dignity. Gaaaah. I love them all!
Hope your business trip went well! Myself, I should probably end the binge now; it's approaching 3am and I'm clearly descending towards incoherency XD I try to always review with my thoughts on a good fic because I know just how much light reviews bring to my life, and there are far better fics than mine out there that deserve it more- like your Sherlock selection :) So, as a blanket thing: well-structured, well-written, thoughtful character pieces, beautiful, emotive, tragic, hilarious, gorgeous, adorable, and generally as awesome as a ninja meerkat :D Thank you for lightening my Sherlock withdrawal with your wonderful ficcage!
(...please don't let it last eighteen months this time...)

I'm just now catching up on some older fics, and so pleased to find this. Always love your Lestrade, and love it even more when you pair him up (not romantically thank God) with John. Both quiet, introspective yet strong men who I think are all too easy to underestimate.
A really great read, thank you :)
| Koulin chapter 1 . 8/27/2011
This is brilliant. Easily one of the favorite stories I have read of the Sherlock fandom. Heart wrenching and descriptive...even though lestrade is already one of my favorite characters I feel that this story has made me love him more than ever!
| Marz1 chapter 1 . 8/17/2011
Great story, lots of stoic manly-ness and subtle emotional stuff. I guess Johns got some more people to shoot.
| Caia Caecilia chapter 1 . 7/24/2011
I am beginning to become a Lestrade angst fan (largely thanks to you lol) and I'm enjoying it immmensley. Loved the fic, the idea of the 4 of them, yes even Mycroft, as brothers-in-arms looking out for each other and standing together. You really capture the 'voices' of the characters in this story - well done that's a difficult talent to master sometimes. I think I might begin to ponder penning some Lestrade angst myself as your writing inspires me. As always thanks for sharing your talent and giving me something so good to read :)
| Caryn chapter 1 . 7/8/2011
I think this is my favorite story of yours so far. I was up past midnight last night reading the Voyager stories (heartbreaking), and plunged back in today with the Sherlock shorts in between appointments. I agree with the reviewer who said you've converted her to a Lestrade fangirl. You write him extremely well.
| pringle.sam chapter 1 . 6/24/2011
Once again, poor, poor, awesome, valiant, amazing Lestrade! I want to snuggle him and feed him tea and make it all better...
Most of my friends have soft spots for (other than Sherlock and John, obviously) Mycroft, but you have utterly converted me into a Lestrade fangirl. Your description of him is perfect: "...a good man, whose quiet moments of greatness went unheralded, true enough, but not unappreciated. No, never again." I completely agree! :]
| luckypixi chapter 1 . 5/24/2011
Wow this was brilliantly written. I loved the fact you explored what Lestrade would be able to take for Sherlock and how he didn't want him to know.
I think this whole thing was great :)
