| shay chapter 21 . 3/2
I'm finishing this story on the actual oscars nught, 2014. And can I say that this story has caused me emotional distress and I have never had to scream so badly at midnight or run aroud my room during cute and fluffy scenes. You are a brilliant writer and your plot and research was amazing (Some of your research I'm even telling people myself now!). i have never finished a fanfic so quickly and I know I'm really late to the club to read this but I'm glad I even read it all because this is a masterpiece. Your a fantastic writer and just ugh, this whole fanfic was perfection and now I'm sad it's over but happy because I read it and now I want to cry happy tears. Thank you so much for ever writing this. - shay x

To be honest I was very uncertain about reading this. But I kept come back to it, thinking its an unteresting concept. When I finally did get into reading I was completely hooked I couldn't put it down. I was blown away by this. I've read so many fan fics that I thought nothing could surprise me. How wrong I was. This was amazing! R.S. ps I loved the meta notes.

This was so so so good. Just wonderful. The level of detail made it all beautifully realistic. The way the relationship develops is lovely and I'm so glad there weren't any angsty moments. I really really love the way you captured their characters so perfectly. I must have been hard in an AU setting, but you pulled it off great! It was a delight to read, really, THANK YOU!
-now I'm off to read more of your work, cheers!

This fic was truly brilliant - you are a wonderful, talented writer! I loved this story and the concept so much, I didn't want it to ever end! I love your writing style and everything felt so real; Sherlock and John were adorable together!
Amazing job at this, keep writing incredible fics!

I've read this story three times and it just keeps getting better each time I read it. You are an amazing author. Keep up the good work. :)

That's it! I need that movie and a DVD on my table, and somebody pass me a remote and snacks.
I'm in love with this and for more than the most obvious reason.

Okay so I have to gush: I love love love this story. Funny thing is, before last week I'd never read it. I read most of of your others but not this one. I'm not sure why - I love Sherlock and I love your writing so it's a puzzle. It so happens I have you favorited as an author and with an alert on updates and I received an email about an addition to the story. I clicked on the link and got an error message and that's when I realized I had never read the original! I started then and literally could not put it down. You are responsible for a good deal of lost work time. :-)
Just wow. So romantic and I love the little insider peek at Hollywood. It was fun trying to guess who John or Sherlock was talking about (or to) just from the first names (I got most of them right). I love the whole story but I think the interviewing parts (w/Ellen and Letterman) are the best. Anyway, enough gushing - I just wanted to let you know much I enjoyed this. Oh and is there going to be a story with the wedding expanded on? I would love that.

Absolutely splendid so far! I feel darn educated.
I've always said I'll never be an actress, but here I am, reading and pondering over 'what ifs' and whatnot.
This is not only a story but also an educational entertainment.
And I love such insight into deeper behinds :)

I loved it! The part where John won made me tear up lol
| Guest chapter 21 . 2/23
NO I DIDNT BELIEVE THIS ACTUALLY COULD END! when I saw there were 21 chapters, and how long each chapter was, I thought this would get so boring after they'd filmed To A Stranger. but you kept this fucking amazing, and holy shit this is definitely in my top 5 fanfics. thankyou so much for writing this. it's so fantastic in every single chapter.

You forgot to point out - or maybe you didn't mean for it to happen - was the fact that RDJ plays Sherlck Holmes in the movie versions with Jude Law and Stephen Fry. So Yay! I love it already and I'm only on the first chapter!
| XxPandaBearxX chapter 21 . 2/23
Woo baby! That's one of the best AU stories iv read in awhile. feels all over the place. You know a good story when it has you grinning ear to ear and laughing out loud.
Congrats on a superb story !

You've managed to flawlessly combine several of my favorite things in one fell swoop: behind-the-scenes filmmaking, Toronto (I used to regularly see many feature films, commercials and TV series being shot at all hours around the city), and Sherlock. Bravo!

Hi. This is actually my first time to attempt to write a review (and this isn't even technically a review, its pure gushing all the way). I realized that I definitely owe you one after I realized this is probably the hundredth time I've read your story (and no, I'm not exaggerating with that figure..it's definitely bookmarked on my phone). I really love your story, from the way you have created your versions of Sherlock and John, to the facts about Hollywood you've inserted, Molly's character, the film (I would pay to see this on the big screen), your Irene Adler, and of course the love story. My favorite chapters would be the guestings with Letterman and Ellen. And reading John's Oscar acceptance speech has definitely made me tear up several times. This is one of my happy places actually. Whenever I feel stressed (which happens too often), I read this story. So thank you for your gift.
P.S. please do write about their wedding. I'm curious as to how Sherlock's vow would turn out to be.

This. Is. The. BEST. BEST. FANFIC. I. Have. Ever. EVER. READ! I can't even begin to... Oh. My. GOD! I don't think, I have enough words to describe what I am feeling, what this story did to me. This is brilliant, freaking brilliant. Flawless and without a doubt the best fan-fiction story ever! I never felt so many emotions over a story like I felt with this. It seemed like one-heck of emotional roller-coaster ride. I just couldn't stop myself from reading, I think 2 days, it took me, with every free-time I could get all I did was read this story. I am sad it ended but cheery as I can go back and start re-reading it. I love this and love you for writing. This is brilliant, you are brilliant... I just... it will always be my most favorite story. Whenever I will think of Fanfiction, this story will always be on top of my list. Beautiful, extraordinary! :)
