|Reviews for The Wee Doctor|
| Jaely chapter 20 . 7/24
First I want to say this was a fantastic story and that I am looking forward to reading the installment in the series. I normally review more often on the stories I read, but I couldn’t stop flipping to the next chapter while reading this story, so completely forgot to drop reviews on the chapters I had read earlier. For that I do apologize as I normally like to give feedback on the work I enjoyed reading from really good writers. Now I can’t give the detailed review I would have done if I had done it chapter by chapter, so I’m not going to try. Instead I’m going to say that the plot was engaging, the characters were flushed outreal’ in the why they felt when read about them and their livesthe environment was vivid without being overbearing or overshadowing the actual plot of the story or the interactions between the various characters, and you have managed to juggle multiple OC characters without losing track of them or letting them over take your story. Further the establishment characters have a good foundation in their known personalities but you have done a really great job of showing the small dissimilarities that now exist in these new versions of the characters we knew. Once again you have so far managed to balance these changes without letting them overrun the plot or characterizations of them completely.
What I really find interesting is how you are handling John’s adjustments as a grown man in a child’s body. It’s really fascinating. I also find Sherlock’s fascination with John interesting, especially since he tends to completely disregard attachments. Yet he is growing attached to John, in a similar way he did before.
What I am a little confused about is how John would suddenly stop taking calls. Especially considering John’s nature to help people, and his need to heal others I have a problem seeing him satisfied being only on call for Davey when all those kids on the street (other than the ones that are in the hospital at the moment) might need him. I was actually expecting him to be running off to see to medical matters off and on, even while still ‘under’ Sherlock’s care. I will confess I at one point had the amusing thought of Sherlock doing his thing and not hearing when John tells him he’d be back, to suddenly turn around to find him gone and have to try and figure out where he went.
Just out of curiosity how much time has passed since John has been with Sherlock. The time skip in your story is so subtle I don’t know how much time has actually past until you put something in to point it out. But by the end of this story the time frame was left rather ambiguous. Also there seems to have been a subtle reference to the fact that life went on without John after he was thrust back/into a parallel reality for Dimmock. How much time had gone by for him? These questions might be answered in the next installment but they were on my mind so I thought I would ask anyway.
One more thing, what is ‘Grey’s’ for those of us that live in America. I tried to find some kind of reference for them online but couldn’t. Only found reference for the Grey vs Gray spelling debate. And I seriously doubt that had anything to do with what John had in his pack.
Anyway great story and I am looking forward to reading the next installment!

I've probably read this entire series a half dozen times now and it never fails to enthrall me. The way you build your characters is just so engaging, I always feel as if I'm getting to know a real person. I don't have the words to adequately describe the way this fic makes me feel, or how much I enjoy it, so I'll just thank you again for sharing it with us.

Great! One of the best "back in the past" fic ever haha

I've read this fic a couple times and I just now made the connection/ comparison between Bad Davey/ Mystify and Roost/ Sherlock, but now that I've seen it it's quite obvious.

I have read this fic many times and yet I still adore that rant of John's. Very eloquent indeed.

I enjoyed your story but I found it hard to understand. The plot was fine and so were the characters but I think you rushed it a bit in some parts. It seemed to do from halfway through a scene to an explanation to the middle of an other scene. I am aware I didn't use all I loved your story

Very interesting! I look forward to more chapters!

Chibified John as a wee Doctor was adorable to imagine. Yet I also felt depressed for him as a mature man forced into a lil' body . . . His condition was seriously more distressful than in the Gosho Aoyama's manga.
Thanks for sharing. It was enjoyable.

When will you fix your not-italicised/bolded-but-meant-to-be text?

The marshmallow experiment! _

This was such an interesting concept. Not really time travel beyond a point and not really alt dimensions/universes either. Just a shot and then... yeah. That would so suck. I dont think most of us would know what to do if that happened to us.

This is very lovely. Your writing style is a little different from all the others that I've read, but at the same time, it's very refreshing. I like how you took the idea about John turning into a child very seriously, and the added part of eliminating some's presence from the world is just brilliant. I love the story and how you showed both Sherlock's train of thoughts and John's. Love that John developed a life outside of Sherlock and I look forward to seeing how John would juggle those two parts of his life. Bad Dave is a very interesting OC, more complicated than just an average thug. I like how you kept everyone in character, but most of all, I love your word choices and sentence structure. Your descriptions are very detailed and vivid.
Thank you for writing. I look forward to reading the second in the series.
