| Cheezewizz chapter 40 . 3/11
Hey, I don't know if you have addressed this before but I want to say that I have one major problem with this fic: you describe everything that happened in canon. You do skip some things but for the most part I am reading your interpretation/skew of the original. I tend to read fan fiction because I know the canon really well already. I can't get enough of the characters and when you review everything that has already happened, you frustrate me. I get that you want to add sexual tension and make the original storyline fit with your fic but you could either skip the repeated scenes and add your own in between or skip this whole limbo state of their relationship.
Ok, all that aside, I really like your own plot. The first chapters with the phone sex were excellent (if somewhat outside of my own kink preference). Sherlock and John are really well characterized and john isn't hugely stupid and Sherlock isn't a complete child. I really like the logic and everything you have written seems plausible. I like your writing style and flow. I liked it enough that I read 100,000 words and enough that I hope you decide to update soon. I hope my critique doesn't bother you too much. Thanks for writing!

Well I definitely enjoyed it!

Such great writing! You are so versatile:
You excelled in flipping between inner/ outer voices. Between sherlock/ John voicing, and past/ present voicing.
I'm not saying this well..
Poorly written review for an amazing writer... Now, on to your other great writing gifts...!
Thanks so much!

I have this bad habit of becoming engrossed in stories that are no longer active. This one has captured my imagination so thoroughly that I was almost considering writing a wrap-up chapter myself, just to give myself the satisfaction of an ending! But alas, writing a satisfying ending for yourself loses the element of surprise and delight that is inherent to being the reader.
I really enjoyed reading this. I thought it was delightful and surprising when you converged with the canon. I had assumed that you were going to keep it in an alternate universe. I am still sort of holding out hope for an ending (!) but nevertheless, a great read. I think I read the whole thing in one day.
Thanks! And we readers hope you are well. :)

I can not express how thoroughly enthralling I found your fanfic. I've been reading a lot and yours really stands out as the best I've found. Your writing style is well executed and researched. The way you've interwoven the episodes is amazing and feels like they were there all along. Not to mention the well convied emotions. Given that it's been 2 years since this was published I assume you won't be posting more and this makes me incredibly sad. Regardless, thanks you for the great read.

It's not complete. *sobs* Why?
| Guest chapter 40 . 11/2/2013
Please finish! You could wrap it up nicely in one chapter!

Question: will you ever update this? I mean, really. It deseves some attention, it's rather good.
| thena-ditey chapter 40 . 10/20/2013
Ah! Love this. I wish there were more.

That was... Awesome. I'm a little speechless, I'll admit. Gotta keep reading.
| thena-ditey chapter 25 . 10/17/2013
Ahhh! I felt like I was watching the show with this one; heart pounding and edge of my seat. :)
| thena-ditey chapter 24 . 10/17/2013
Even knowing what's happening, or maybe especially because I know what's happening, I just squee'd at Sherlock's reaction. :)
| thena-ditey chapter 19 . 10/16/2013
Ah. Poor Sher. Ouches all around today.

Melissa has some teeth in her. Poor John.
