Lots of great stuff in this chapter (yeah, I'm behind on it, like with so many other things). The deductions bits are particularly well done. Once again, jealous. XD
Ah, Hopkins! I've introduced him in my story, too, but with a completely different interpretation. I like your take on him, though, partly because he's sort of adorable in a naive-but-determined way, and partly because . . . well, like Sherlock, I'm slightly suspicious, too. Don't trust anybody, except John and Lestrade. But if he is who he seems, it'll be nice for Sherlock to have a fan who ISN'T a criminal genius.
The last line was golden. 'Nuff said.

This story is excellent! The characterization is spot on. Looking forward to the next chapter.

Hehe - "flouncing". :P Yes, I had a bit of a giggle at that.
Fantastic chapter, as always. And as always, I will elaborate on this further - I love the conversation between John and Sherlock in this. It's very much in character and is wonderful to read. Well done! I also love the idea of Sherlock setting up a fake Facebook account. Great idea, highly amusing, and I can actually see him doing exactly that.
Thanks again for updating and I do hope to read more soon. :)

When in doubt, make tea.
As I have said before, love this fic and love the way you write the characters. I enjoy the friendship between John and Sherlock and I can't wait to read more.

Yes yes, I remain despite the lack of slash ;)
Their relationship is still cute
I'm guessing the nephew is the murderer...but then again I have a hard time remembering what people look like in stories so I probably missed some crucial "look" descriptions which would have ruled him out.
So...when you say no slash...is that no sex? Can we have fluff romance? Sweet cuddles? KISSES! At least kisses...? Q_Q
Life and death situation where they realize their love?

i had to look up the word because im no native speaker and so my english is limited, but i nearly giggled when i realized how much it fits when describing sherlock.
sherlock on facebook cant be a good idea... i like him referring to the college girls as expert sources :)
i loved the bickering between sherlock and john here(and i wonder if there is something in the fridge when sherlock tries to get john away from it so obviously)
the part with miss hudson wanting her own married ones and johns reaction when he realized she looked at HIM made me laugh out loud.i like the way you played with this running gag from the show.

Depth, Verity, they have depth. It's as though your other stories come into play to make them more fully realized characters here. Not very clear, I know, but not enough coffee yet. Thank you, and I will keep reading, eagerly. And the podfics were GRAND!

"flouncing" still makes me chuckle. :) how fitting! Great writing!

I came across your fic by chance, and I honestly don't regret it, it's really promising.
The first chapter was really interesting : I spent about the whole time thinking Sherlock was the one interviewing the future victim, you've managed to play with the appearances and the illusions until almost the end, creating a surprising ending which makes the whole story all the more interesting. This begining made me want to take a deeper look into you story, and now here I am, wainting impatiently for the continuation...
Your fanfiction is well-built, and deep, with many levels of plots, making it interesting, elaborate... what exactly happened between Sherlock and Scotland Yards two months ago ? Which repercussions does the Moriarty arc still have on Sherlock ? Will there be more Moriarty ? All those questions you bring make me just want to have the rest of the story, and the complexity of your plot shows there's a lot more coming...
One of the things I like the most is how you've managed to catch the essence of the John-Sherlock relationship. Their friendship is strong, of the strongest there are. The two of them have a particular alchemy together, which makes them irresistible... John understands Sherlock just perfectly, more than Sherlock thinks, in my opinion. I really like the way they interact with each other : The 'alright, at the speed you're writing, you'd starve to death before you got to the end. I'm only thinking of you', meant to manipulate John into giving Sherlock what he wants, his sulking at John's remark about him being a tit... you've just caught the character : his arrogance and pride he can't just shut up, his obsessive need to be right against John... I particularly appreciated the bit about honey. It completly fits the character, I think xD
John is also gretly used in your story : his fondness of Sherlock showing in the remarks he addresses him -'Is this a code ?' for example, just him, well done -, the way he can analyse him... the great respect he feels toward Sherlock is completly visible in your work, and those bits of character are, in my opinion, what makes you story so enjoyable : it's not only about an investigation, but also relationships and people...
Am I the only one to think there's something off with Peter ? Of course, it's maybe the fact that he's an original character who just appeared before the story began that makes me think that, but still. Is he connected in any way with those strange deaths ?
And Moriarty. Always him. Of course, he escaped the bombing. It would have been to great. What is his connection with the crimes ? He's at the heart of all of this, I'm sure... I'm sure we'll learn more in the following chapters !
Well, I know my review's shitty. Really sorry. And it must contain non-english terms, grammary mistakes... I hope you won't mind too much.
Anyway, keep doing a great job, i'll try and follow you as regularly as possible !

I really love those two boys! You're spot on with their friendship. I love that bit where John ruffled Sherlock's hair. That's really cute. So that's what happened two months ago. And the case is getting somewhere now that sufficient data is given about the victims. Can't wait for next Monday for your next update. Ü
| mattsloved1 chapter 4 . 7/4/2011
Very nice update! I love how comfortable the two men are together. How well they know one another. Although I believe John is a bit ahead of Sherlock.
A few lines I like are: "Is this in code?" asked John.", "...and that thug would have looked large to you too if you'd been tied to a chair and concussed when you saw him." & "He turned back to his notepad, leaving Sherlock mouthing 'flouncing?' unnoticed."
Poor Mrs. Hudson. She so desperately wants her own 'marries ones'. Thanks again! :)
| JennaEf chapter 4 . 7/4/2011
Great chapter! And I absolutely LOVE how you manage to capture Sherlock and John interactions! Perfect!
Of course it got to be about Moriarty... I should've guessed. And it's so Sherlock to just shut John out in the beginning of the chapter :)
Oh, and one of the favourite lines? "Anyway, at the speed you're writing, you'd starve to death before you got to the end. I'm only thinking of you."
Unusual frendship, indeed :)
Thanks for the update, will be waiting for the next chapter!
| XMillieX chapter 4 . 7/4/2011
There was so much that I loved about this chapter, but I think the icing on the cake was:
"Well Mr Thompson was at least six feet," he said. "Possibly even six foot one, which would make him taller than some people who give an illusion of great height which is mostly hair and flouncing."
He turned back to his notepad, leaving Sherlock mouthing 'flouncing?' unnoticed.
I actually choked on my own laughter (which then turned to coughing- Being sick is always made better by reading ffic).
As always, I loved it!
| Manny Maarie chapter 3 . 7/3/2011
The fact that Sherlock did, actually, like honey very much made the whole thing much more annoying.
Ok, I'm sorry, but once a week updates isn't enough! lol
I wantz more pl0x ;)
| lonewolfe001 chapter 3 . 6/29/2011
lol. The last line was unexpected. I'm very curious by the incident. I'm with sherlock, fans cannot be trusted, unless it is john. Please update soon
