Guest chapter 1 . 12/13/2014
Came to this story from an article on TV Tropes for it and had spoiled myself for the ending. Still, the first thing I did upon finishing was to get up and read it aloud to my mother. She guessed it about half way through but she still burst into laughter at the guest's name. Very nice done story and in spirit.

A nice story.

Very cute! I didn't guess that it was Tiny Tim until we got to insane godfather. Good subtle, suggestive hints.

Oh, wow, that was great! Holmes's deductions were amazingly spot-on, and I loved that little twist you threw in at the end. ;-)

Oh, I loved this! Great twist, and lovely ending. And excellent prose as always.

A very effective meshing of two author's work. I like the future you have envisaged for Tiny Tim, and am impressed with the medical detail used. Very well penned:-)

That was great! And what a nice future vision for Tiny Tim!
Marie Nomad chapter 1 . 12/9/2011
This is such a clever and subtle Christmas Carol crossover. I love it. And the ending inspired Holmes to try to enjoy Christmas a little more. Awww...

Scared the dickens out of me? Couldn't resist, could ya :)

Excellently written! The ending, especially, was quite a marvelous surprize! Great work!

In a word, stunning.

How one can craft a story as such taking two English literature magnates and melding their characters ever so seemlessly is beyond description. The character are well represented, except for Holmes, whose speech could be altered and mood lightened. Though, if it is for the story, then so be it.

I hope this story somehow makes it into a magazine or another one of your stories. You definitely have a career in the short story format.
