| Larca Scorsa chapter 1 . 2/5
Ok. Er, wow. I'm really sorry, but I had to stop mid-story to check the reviews, when it became obvious that John was raping Sherlock. I had to know if I was the only shocked one (apparently, yes, except for one person). There's no matter how he was wanting it at the end or not, it IS rape. Sherlock gave no sign of wanting this at all, and John was so violent, it just doesn't fit at all with my perception of John. And apparently, not completely with yours either: since when do someone take great care of someone else's feelings (with the sociopath and flirting thing) and suddenly rape said person at the first step out? I understand the punch in the face, the anger, but not AT ALL the violent sex. It doesn't make sense.
So yeah, you definitely have to put a warning at the beginning of your story, like that person already asked you 2 years ago. And there's still nothing. I finished the story, and all the end is quite cute, but you've gotta put a warning. It made me incredibly unease to read this. Think one second of a person having gone through a similar thing, wanting it or not, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't want to read your story. I wouldn't have wanted to read it either, to tell you the truth.
I understand that it can be difficult to put that warning (it means less readers, obviously), especially since you (and many other people obviously) don't seem to see it as rape (John asked himself the question, after all) since Sherlock was 'ok' with it in fact, but... no. Even if he is, he doesn't say so. It's about consent. You wrote this story 6 years ago, and I understand time has changed a bit, considering this type of point of view. But you really have to put a warning. I really wasn't prepared for that and was truly shocked.
Otherwise, it was really well written and the beginning was very hot. Insecure Sherlock is not my favorite but I still find it cute.
So yeah. Sorry for the depreciative review, but I needed to write it, to let it go.

you need to put a non-con warning in the description or the author's note. I don't care that you wrote it to say otherwise by the end of their encounter, it was absolutely rape. If you had made any indication that sherlock was interested at the start of their encounter, your fic would be more believable. BUT in fact you had john pin him, twist his arm, drop his pants, rape him with his fingers and then with his dick all without a positive word (or any word!) from sherlock. Not to mention that a virgin would be unprepared and unknowing about john's intentions up until he was actually penetrated and therefore unable to consent.

I just made an account to write this. (I'm like always on , but I never needed an account until now.)
This story is perfection. It gave me all this feelings and it fits Johnlock and the show so much. I think I can never watch it again without beeing sad that all that will never happen for real. :/
But really: This story is so well written. It's smut with angst (I love angst, haha) and lots of fluffy fluff in the and.
Thank you for making my day and stopping me from crying.

Holy ... smokes!...
How the HELL did I miss this one? It was ... Wow, Rachael! Just ... Damn!
Crap, I'm stuttering in a keyboard. How stupid. But ... Whoa!
So, yeah, going in my favorites list, and I insist you write more of this pairing. I demand it!

Enjoyed this immensely! What a cold and unforgiving world Sherlock has lived in to think that John would just, "Hit it and quit it." John is obviously in it for the long hall and totally committed to their relationship/friendship. Thanks for this interesting take on "Tuff Love:-D"
