When you first posted this tale, I was really impressed with the first 2 chapters, but backed away a bit (as,I suspect, did others) from the images in the third one. I am glad you have toned it down somewhat, although the description is still pretty grim.
Another point, if you don't mind; worth separating author's note from story with a horizontal line. And mentioning your state when posting and informing the reader that you, the author, think the story is awful is not the ideal way of presenting your work for others to read.
I read this, because I know how well you wrote the opening chapters, and in my opinion it is a shame if you are losing confidence in your ability. I am looking forward to seeing how you carry the tale on from here, and wish you well.
I am glad you decided to continue this.

Yikes! That would be enough to give someone nightmares.

Mrs. Hudson sure gets interrupted a lot with her cleaning.

Yikes! Three cases at once. Holmes needs a vacation.

This is spooky. I liked the gradual buildup to Holmes revealing what was going on. I am intrigued and hope that you continue with this.

...Um. Ew? I'm actually quite speechless over this one. Watson's not the only one who is going to have nightmares over this.
So they actually did this to people? That's just sick.
On a happy note, way to use my favorite Thoreau quote!

This has taken an unexpected but fascinating direction. You continue to write very well, with the different emotions involved coming across clearly. Well done:-)

You know that feeling you get right before you go on a roller coaster, or eat a bowl of ice cream? That giddy anticipation? I get that feeling with this story. This is going to be good.
I'm ready for more. Anything that has to do with Watson and his'previous life' so to speak is bound to be epic. I honestly did not see this coming at all.
"I lit a cigarette and opened the newspaper..." Yeesh. It's a miracle half the population of the 1800's didn't keel over and die from all that smoking. :D
One thing, I caught two little errors. Nothing major, just what happens when you're in the moment and typing fast. You might want to read over it again and fix those. This is such a beautifully written story,I would hate for those misspellings to take away from the charm of the words.

A promising and well-written beginning; looking forward to more :)

Awesome opening! Can't wait for the rest!

Hello! You have set the scene very well here, and I am looking forward to finding out where this is going. I particularly liked Watson deducing whether Holmes was truly asleep.
