Alice chapter 1 . 2/11/2014
Awesome writing! I like this story and I hope you pick it back up to continue working on.
A Study in Reichenbach Feels chapter 1 . 12/3/2013
This is written beautifully, Their dialogue and reactions are so in tune to their characters! :3 I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Color series when i have time!
JuniorWoofles chapter 1 . 8/31/2013
Aww, sexual tension is going to kill me in the next few chapters isn't it? Anyway this was very well written, especially the Mycroft jokes near the start.
starlight.moon.princess chapter 1 . 2/20/2013
Gorgeous, as usual.

The conversation between them is so believable and in character for them that I can't even -

[But John... John believed in Sherlock. He believed that he could get past this.

He believed in Sherlock.] This made me break down in tears, I swear. It's so like John to believe in Sherlock regardless of anything, and equally like Sherlock to be so moved by his belief that he's do anything for John. It made me flash back to the look on Sherlock's face in Study in Pink when he says that people usually tell him to piss off, and it broke my heart. Even more that it was already broken, that it.

"And Sherlock couldn't have that. He couldn't stand it. No, worse than the boredom, worse than the lack of control, was John leaving. Sherlock would lose more control then. He'd spiral down, down, ever down into the black pool that swallowed him when he was bored.

With John he wasn't bored. With John he was alive, and liked, and had fun.

Could he do this for John?

Could he stop?"

I love how you made it a hard decision. There was conflict, Sherlock is really thinking that he may not be able to do it- and John is aware of that. I like how he was thinking, weighing things up and trying to decide. Loving this.

Puggle chapter 1 . 9/9/2012
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
I Dont Know What Im Doing chapter 1 . 8/1/2012
Beautifully written, very realistic in the thoughts behind self harm and applying it to Sherlock. And Sherlock worry of losing John, so touching.
Ishtar205 chapter 1 . 6/11/2012

Wow. Last review was kind of rushed, sorry. I'll try to take longer in this one.

These two stories were amazing. In the first one, the way you described everything was perfect. I'm probably going to read it again. Or possibly not, because it is probably in fact a very bad idea, but if that's the case then that is also a compliment to you and your writing abilities. It means that you've described such a vivid, life-like scene it actually

Well actually never mind that. I'm leaving that there because I'm trying to compliment you in a sincere way, with details, as opposed to just "wow you're great holy shit you're an amazing writer" but my personal life doesn't need to enter the picture. ANYWAY.

Yes. The first one was very vividly described, very true to life, ever so believable, and just all around amazing. And the end, especially, with John's reaction - I can picture the scene perfectly, I can see exactly what's happening, I can feel what Sherlock is thinking, feeling, how John feels, what he's thinking, just all of it. I can stop that scene in time and examine it from every angle and find no detail lacking. And that you did that in those few sentences is, frankly, remarkable.

Come to think of it, the rest of the story, too - the entire thing. I can see the whole story playing out in front of me, no details lacking. You've provided the perfect amount of prompt for the imagination to take and run with, and know exactly what you're describing. I feel like I'm just going in circles with my words at this point - I hope I've managed to get my point across by this time. But who knows, I've never been the best at describing how I feel...though I think I've actually done it decently in this. I don't know, though. You're being complimented, alright? This big tangled mess of words is a compliment. I love your writing.

Now for the second story - again, with the descriptions. Just - perfection, alright? Again, I can see everything happening, see it exactly, and I know what John is feeling - anger, fear, what if I lose him?, how could he - what Sherlock is feeling - he can't make me stop, he doesn't understand I need it, I can't stop, I can't survive without it, DON'T MAKE ME STOP, why is he so upset?, there's not all that much to be upset over - again, the perfect amount of description; not so much that it gets to be tedious, and you find yourself skimming paragraphs, but not so little you're not sure what the author has been seeing. And for this story, I love how so much of it was done through dialogue. You convey their emotions just through the words they're saying, and maybe a few other words here and there. No paragraphs describing how they feel - the reader can just understand it from the dialogue. And it all sounds so real at the same time.

Just...spectacular job, alright?
Sunshine Through The Storm chapter 1 . 2/21/2012
I love concerned John. He's always so caring, and wonderful. I wish I had a doctor who cared :/

A really moving piece. "You're my friend and I care about my friends hurting themselves."

What an alarming but amazing topic... buyable too. Tortured genius - was this in the first series? You can picture it vividly just as you have written it. Some of the stark imagery you provide is also brillient the play of colours, all really make this a deeper impression and great Abi
Ali-chan et Vani-chan chapter 1 . 12/22/2011
I hope Sherlock will be better and won't hurt himself again :( Be I know he will... (it's in Impact if I remember correctly), still makes me sad. I don't like it when Sherlock or Mycroft get hurt.
Vampsi chapter 1 . 12/17/2011
Awww. This is an awesome moment between the two of them. I'm glad that you were compelled to write it. :p It's a really sweet "conclusion" to this particular moment between the two of them. When the other one ended, I had wondered if this one was going to pick up where the other left off. I'm glad it did!
huggs5 chapter 1 . 11/30/2011
Can I just have Sherlock in my room right now. I want to hug him. And use his blade .
