This is brilliantly written and truly beautiful. It was heart-wrenching for the most part, but the ending was heartwarming and sweet. I loved it. Absolutely amazing.

Oh . . . wow. Yes.
I have read so many brilliant stories tonight. This is one of the most deeply, intensely lovely ones I've read.
I'm . . breathless, amazed. Speechless, because I cannot imagine writing words so beautiful.
I have fallen in love countless times in several hours.
Each time is no less wondrous than the last. This time is no different.

Your writing is beautiful! The last two lines... They made me cry, but in the best of ways! Thank you!

A thoughtfully developed and insightful metaphor; I liked it a lot.

Wow, this was gorgeous. What an awesome and imaginative take on how Sherlock sees John. I love it.
| Hazel Sage chapter 3 . 9/16/2011
This is an AMAZING concept and it worked so well! One of the best Sherlock/John stories I've read!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I came THIS CLOSE to weeping, it was so wonderful.
I swear, every word you wrote fit perfectly; it was so achingly bittersweet but there was enough sweet to comfort me. When Sherlock sees that John's strings have attached to him just like his have attached to John, I just...cracked. It was so fabulously done.
Props, this is one of the best fics I have read in quite a long time. Absolutely beautiful.

Oh, my heart just ached for Sherlock...I think I get it now, being tied to someone (stringed? strung?), being pulled along with them helplessly and they don't even realize. Now I get it. I couldn't have phrased it any better if I'd tried.
I want to hate Sarah, but I have a bit of trouble because she seems awfully sweet, and my name is Sarah so I'm biased. But I really do despise the way she's put herself between our heroes; that's not her spot, it's Sherlock's and only his, really, so she'd better move out of the way.

...My God, what a metaphor. I don't think I've ever read something like this. I absolutely love it, I must tell you; your writing style is very poetic and creative. I love your word choice and your syntax; it all works together very well. Beautiful chapter...now on to the next!

You are absolutely, positively, one-hundred-percent WIN. Honest.
Thank-you for this. 3

sherlocks daydream is a little too explicit to be my cup of tea, but else i still like this story. do you know that your story is the first one i read where the semtex is fake?
(this would be logical, moriarty wants to to play, and though he has no problem killing "boring" people like john or old ladies, he is far too fascinated by sherlock to kill him.
he says that all possible arguments have already crossed sherlocks mind, as well as his own in tgg when sherlock aims at the vest. so i think moriarty foresaw this possibility and has made preparations.
and, lets be realistic, the old ladies semtex vest blew up a building and 12 people died. if this one explodes, they will very likely die or stay in the hospital for the rest of season 2, and the producers of the series cant let that happen;)
ach ja, ich war sehr amüsiert als ich auf meinen englischen review eine deutsche antwort bekommen habe:) habe vorher nicht auf dein profil geschaut. hoffe london war schön:)

Another great update, love the whole flowing masterpiece. At the beginning of this piece, Sherlock comes across as almost creepy, being so needing of John. Then John - wonderful, unpredictable John - turns the tables and shows Sherlock he is equally obsessed. Just wonderful :)

you crazy mofo! this is SO good!
| toeki chapter 2 . 8/12/2011
this is beautiful, amazing so far.
the backstory, the string comparison, the logic that you cant be hurt when you have no connection to other people...
im speechleess right now.
i saw a minor typing error while reading chapter one the first time, but couldnt find it when reading the second time to point it out for you.
will you continue this? how long is this story supposed to be?

Well written and thought provoking. And Sherlock is quietly insane. I'm keen to see where this is going.
