staceuo chapter 1 . 6/13/2011
Ah, Verity Burns a warm welcome back to you :)

As usual your combination of humour (sofa,newspaper headlines) and distraction ( tea & biscuits) caught me deliciously off guard. At first I was convinced it was Lestrade, then, I began to think it was Sherlock looking for information (perhaps Robert might have had something to do with the overall plot?). By the time I had my first suspicion that perhaps it was neither, it was too late for poor Moria. All she wanted was to have a nice bath and watch crap telly on a Saturday, poor thing :( Sadly my contribution to helping her was shouting lamely at the computer screen “hit him with the cup!” .One of the many reasons that I love your stories so much, is that they make me shout at inanimate objects.

Brilliant start to what I expect to be a rip roaring , hair raising and at times a right old laugh adventure.

On a final note, Lestrade really will have to be more alert for pick pockets!

Really good to have you back.

ho HO! I so called it. I'm wearing my smug face now, can you tell? I'm pretty excited for this story! Can't wait to see what happens next!

Oooh... spooky! Drugged tea, perhaps? Distracting her by asking for biscuits? Very intriguing, I must say! :D x

Oh boy. As they say in Star Wars, "I have a bad feeling about this."

Very intriguing start. It's tough for me to get invested in long stories, but since this is the start and it shows promise, I might keep checking in. This initial chapter really makes it stand out. Good work. Hope to see more soon.

I always love your stories, and I can tell this one is going to be excellent! Got really freaked out upwards the end, I never suspected anything until the 'false pretences' bit. I sincerely hope it wasn't actualy Lestrade! Love it, please try and update soon!

What an enticing beginning! I like how “Lestrade” has many of the same “highly functioning sociopath” mannerisms that Sherlock shows in Banker. Also really like Moira’s thought process—she’s a sympathetic and believable victim (?). It’s nice that a combination of good manners and a natural susceptibility to his charms, not stupidity, leads her down that garden path. Love, love, love all the details that describe her life (her nice china, her decrepit sofa, her unfaithful man). I am definitely staying tuned!

I think you are aware of what my thoughts are on this new piece. ;) Well done!
lege et lacrima chapter 1 . 6/13/2011
Oh, snap. What a great opening chapter! This is a very promising start indeed to what I'm sure will be a fantastic story. (Knowing it's you, though, that's a given.)

I'll admit, I saw that it was not slash in the summary and my face fell a little (I know; I'm awful), but this is just brilliant so far. Honestly, I adore a good detective story.

I've probably said this in previous reviews but your writing is always a joy to read - "dredging up a smile" in particular painted the perfect picture of Lestrade for me.

I absolutely cannot wait until the next chapter!

Ahem... Not Lestrade, then? He was acting rather oddly, in fact.

Intriguing beginning of the story, will definitely be waiting for the next chapter!
