No blanket for John? Also, John won't be getting out after all.

Very nicely written. You’ve captured Baker Street and the characters so well. I like Sherlock and Mycroft sharing space without the venomous snarking.

I love domestic moments... and that is my absolute favorite poem so when I saw the title I had to read it!

The interactions are spot-on...lovely read! I especially loved the scene of Sherlock disappearing into his mind palace, and how the time gets away from him when he does that. I imagine him all still while his brain works on and on, faster and faster...you captured that perfectly

That was quite simply lovely.
I felt sorry for Mycroft when I realised John was right and that he is in all likelihood quite lonely, whether he would admit it or not. I was therefore inordinately pleased when John not only agreed to him spending the afternoon at Baker Street so easily but also that Sherlock suspended their usual hostilities and acted more like a little brother for the duration (well, like a little Holmes brother at least). The image of them both on the same sofa, jostling for space and having semi-silent conversations, was really rather touching and made me smile. As did your description of Sherlock looking like a disgruntled six year old when he glared at them!
The addition of a rather domesticated moment with Lestrade finished off the story nicely. As always you kept everyone completely in character throughout and did a superb job with their voices.

Oh, I liked this very much.

Oh god that's good. All your writing is so perfectly in character. The dynamic between the characters are brilliant as always. Your language reads like warm chocolate milk. Very unpretentious yet clever. I like it. A lot.

Beautifully calming, warm, and lovely. You really captured the feeling of a quiet snowy evening with friends and family. It was very peaceful to read. Thank you! :)

Excellent piece of work you have here, I really enjoyed every part of it. It's calm and very in-character. Very nicely done.

This was a pleasant piece with a nice pacing. Not the most incredible thing ever, but then, I doubt it was intended to be. I very much like the way you wrote their relations and interactions with each other.
"...they keep jockeying for space even though there's an empty chair two feet away." As soon as I read this line, I was reminded of me and my siblings, so I got a good grin out of that. Thought I'd share.
Thanks for writing this!

It's just something else - this piece. It's mind blowing in its normality. Really well done.
