"Listen, you arrogant twat," he hisses. "Do not patronise me in public right now, or I will mediocre your arse until your prostate explodes."
Your John is an indescribable delight.
"Before we left the house, you made it plain that you want to tie me up and use me by the fireplace. Am I to assume that you meant in some platonic way? As an umbrella stand, perhaps."
as is your Sherlock.
"It's the polar opposite of neon-green briefs."
make-shift lie detector tests ftw

"John's blood runs cold, then hot. Since when does he let other men touch him like that? I haven't touched him like that."
jealous!John pufftin's happy place
"Of course he does. Nnnghhh. Skin so white and fine that everything leaves a mark. The man is a fucking Etch-A-Sketch."
ha haha. this is a terrific metaphor. John's glee when Sherlock cockblocks julien is beautiful.
"Although not much used to manhandling his flatmate, John throws his left arm roughly around Sherlock's tapered waist and reels him in until their sides touch."
only thing hotter than jealousJohn is possessiveJohn
Beyond all this arching sexual tension you do an magnificent job writing the case and well writing in general.

"Don't flounce over on your side and bury your head in the cushions like you're ignoring me, when really, you're just coming up with an excuse to show off your magnificent arse."
love that bit. extremely canon that move of Sherlock's.
"Obviously. Can't you see it written above my head in 64-point revised Johnston Underground or something?"
bust. a gut.
sherlock's arse belonging to a Sir Mix-A-Lot video is total, perfect lols.
"the patented piece of orgy-wear that you traipse around in comes with handy built-in bondage rope, in case I want to tie you up and fucking use you by the fireplace."
let this happen/i
"...Brain like a red giant, and you dress like a cheap whore."
"and you'll be screaming so hard that the married ones will be popping their heads around the corner asking to borrow you and a tub of Marmite. And then the entire clientele of Speedy's will assemble in the hallway, hoping for some of the same, and there will not be enough to fucking go around, because I will not share you, Sherlock. If you let me have you, I will not share any part of you, not now, not ever."
Do you realize you're my *favorite* author right now for that section alone?

A tumblr rec pointed me here. I can't tell you how deliciously wonderful I find your story and writing. I created a ff account *just* so I could attempt to tell you.
"The fuck is he doing? He made it clear at Angelo's he's not even remotely interested in sex, and now he's giving himself … what, a skull fuck? A brain job? How is that even happening?"
"He maneuvers himself into a cross-legged sitting position. Now that's he's finished, he's all elbows and knees and points again and watching him sit up is like watching a piece of origami spontaneously evolve into something sentient."
LOL. You have a talent for humor and description. I'll think of Sherlock as an evolving piece of origami forever now.
But the best parts are your descriptions of Sherlock being gorgeously Sherlock and John's desire for him.
"Suddenly, Sherlock arches his neck, lifts his hips, crams his fist in his mouth (what, no, his whole fist?), shouts once, then, in front of his painfully aroused flatmate, falls back spent and boneless on the sofa."
"Please. For the love of God, do not engage in afterplay. Do not cuddle and caress the side of your head while murmuring sweet nothings to it for fifteen minutes to help it come down after sex, or I am going to have a heart attack in front of you, and as soon as you get your mouth on me to do CPR, I promise you, I will die."

Thank you, thank you! I wasn't sure that you would be able to pay off the first two chapters since they were more erotic than some of the full-bore slash porn I've read. But, boy howdy, the temperature in my room has increased exponentially. Not to mention the fact that, smut aside, you are a very wonderful writer. The characters are true to the source material, everything is very visual all in all it's just a pleasure to read. I'm looking forward to the next chapter, angsty or not. Keep going!

I loved this description of Sherlock:
"Not, in this light, beautiful like women, but like an ice storm, when the bones of the trees are covered in sharpness."
I actually live in a part of the world where we have ice storms and there is such perfection in that kind of cold beauty.
I laughed at the part about mirror neurons. You really have the autism research taken care of here!
As for Sherlock and Asperger's, I also realized that if he were autistic that might really spoil the physical side if a romantic relationship with John, if he was one of those with autism who don't like to be touched by others. Verity burns did a good job of imagining Sherlock as someone who could only ever be touched by John in "The Heart in the Whole"; there I could see SH as slightly autistic but still very much interested in touch, as long as it was John's touch.

Love it! Loveitloveitloveit! Awesomest chapter ever! I am finding myself unable to come up with anything even remotely constructive to say. If there were spelling mistakes, I didn't notice them. Looking much forward to the promised angstyness of the next chapter, a little angst makes the world a better place, every time.

Another brilliant chapter to an already brilliant story!
| inconcvbl chapter 6 . 9/20/2011
Sweet Jesus. Your writing is just so funny and smart and smoldering!
Lines that made me laugh (or catch my breath for...ahem...other reasons):
"He's been addressing John by rank at odd times lately, and John can't help but think his flatmate is developing a squaddie kink." (ohhh, me too...me too...)
"There's no point in trotting out the shopworn cliché about whether he's happy to see John or not. Clearly, he is delighted." (ha!)
"Best to give him some attitude, or God knows what liberties he'll take." (Good thinking, John. And good luck to you, sir)
So, all this, and angst too? Yes, please!
Also, if I am understanding the other comments correctly, you are visiting the Kink Fairy herself, Atlin Merrick? Now THAT is about as unholy an alliance as I can imagine...
Do I dare to hope for a collaboration of some kind? Between the two of you, I'm getting very little done these days. Not that I'm complaining... ;

I LOVE this chapter too, can't wait for the next!

"I'm going to angst this thing down to the ground next chapter, so if you're not up for that, this is a good place to stop."
Does this mean you're going for a bad/sad/etc ending? I'll happily dismount right now and hobble away happily sated, if so, but if it's going to tromp through angst-ridden woods and come out the other side to a happy glad of nifty, then I'm staying on the ride until it comes to a complete stop.
Translation: FIC GOOD! ME LIKE!
