This made me laugh...so...hard. It's actually causing my glasses to fog up, I'm still laughing. Especially the parts about Sherlock looking chastened, and Lestrade looking for a terrorist attack, or all global warming happening at once; and John admitting to hitting him in the face, and Lestrade thinking it was stubble. This was great.

*Chuckle* I love how you handled the perspective on this!

It's nice to see a post-Reichenbach fic that focuses on Lestrade. His reaction- cold shock, disbelief, amusement, and fury all rolled into one- was very unique and somehow very in-character. From Lestrade's punch onwards, now that was priceless. Great job!

Loved this! Brilliant fic and it made me laugh when Lestrade just punched him then smiled and said he was glad he was back:) Really good I'd love this to be the actual greeting between the two! Xx

Lestrade, in general, does not get enough POV.
I'm glad you sought to remedy that.

Y'know, these people are much more violent in their reactions. The original Watson fainted...

Awwwww! So cute! Love John "I hit him in the face" HA!

“…tripping over little bits and tatters of their lives that hadn't quite got boxed up with everything else…”
Nice visual. I don’t know why, but I just love it when Lestrade punches Sherlock.

Just how I expected them to reunite! Over the case, with joy and violence...
Although I wonder if it would take 3 years... In Victorian England the world was so much bigger and slower. I think in the modern series it won't be much more than 3 month or so...
Great story, thatnk you!

This is basically brilliant all around! There are too many little details that I love to list all of them, but the opening paragraph was definitely great; the receipt in his pocket, and the text. And Anderson pausing to stare four times was very...Good. Hilarious. XD

This was so good and too many funny lines to quote but I especially LOVED the beginning. Lestrade is so calm about death, like, not used to it but accepting of it so graciously. You've touched me because my grandma died last month and my dad went to her house to help with arrangements and called from the land line and my phone read 'grandma' and I was sad and happy at the same time because it was like, for a split second, she was still around. So, like I said, your words/writing really, really touched me. I then love how Lestrade assumes John screwed up texting - that is so funny! Then the second text and the cold chill - perfect.
This was a brilliant piece and a perfect follow up to John's reaction.
