| VanillaSlash chapter 1 . 9/12/2012
"He attempted to kill himself four times as a teenager. He referred to his depression, the pressing darkness, the sensation of being lost in the labyrinth of his own brilliant mind, as the Drainpipe." This line, oh my god. Just fantastically amazing. Such wonderful emotion throughout this whole fic. Brilliant.

Heartbreaking,and an unusally good one-shot. A job very well-done.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. Your story was very moving, I love how Mycroft did everything possible (and impossible) with his power, in order to find Sherlock. The flashbacks were a great addition, leading us to understand their past connection.

That was just... guh... *sobs* Sherlock and Mycroft's relationship is complex, but my favourite aspect of it has always been Mycroft's oddly expressed protective tendencies. His reaction to an extreme situation was expressed beautifully here. And Sherlock... I WANT TO HUG HIM TOO. ;_; I want to hug them both now.

The emotions here are stunning.

OMG...That was great I liked all the flashbacks of when he was little and those rotten little B st rds! grrr...I really loved it, so well written and I love the fact that you can SEE Mycroft's feelings for him...

I love this! As an older sibling with an arrogant, intelligent, slightly mad younger brother, I can empathize with Mycroft's position a little too much!
John's point of view on this would be fascinating, to see as well. He must have been out of his mind with worry too, after all. His take on the very end would be just wonderful.
I'm definitely bookmarking this, in other words.

This was awesome. Thank you. I believe-no, I know-that I have the softest spot for the Mycroft/Sherlock fics over any other Sherlock ficdom, even Sherlock/John.
GAH. You almost made me cry. But I loved it. :)

You made it 10x more powerful with the flashback of child!Sherlock and who's comforting who

This is so absolutely beautiful 3 I love it. I really like how you interspersed the flashbacks between the action. Sometimes it can be too much, but you gave such short vingettes that it really helped the flow instead of mangling it, props for that!
Anyways, I just really love how you've captured the sweetness of their relationship. No matter how much you fight, your brother is your brother, right? 3 wonderful work, thank you!

This was amazing! Kinda short for my liking, but I loved the way the flashbacks were woven into the present so masterfully, and how tangible Mycroft's panic and fear was. This was all emotion, and I LOVED it.
| Miriza chapter 1 . 8/25/2011
Very good. I love dark fic. I like the way you gave us background information about his past, how Mycroft used to comfort Sherlock in his misery, it was so sweet.
At once Mycrofts worry and caring of his little brother has been shown, because it is not always very clear. I liked very much Mycrofts point of view, to see a glimbse from his softer side, his inner feelings and his efforts to find his little brother.
And the end: “it was difficult to tell who was comforting whom.” Beautiful!
