Very different from any story I've read before I'll give you that. Took me a while to realise what was going on but once I did it was fine. The ending was perfect with their shared stone ands Mycroft's interruption was a stroke of genius.

This was a fascinating and original story idea. I love the idea of people creating stones from their feelings. Very amazing. Thank you for sharing this story!

That was brilliant.
In some places it was a little confusing, but as I kept reading I figured it out.

Oh I love this! Magical realism done very well. (MR is my new favorite thing!)
I adore how the stones are used to depict so many things - they give away so much about a person, things maybe they'd want to keep hidden. Having conversations we wouldn't willingly have, but when we're left with no choice then we open up.

Gosh, I read this story ages ago, when I was first getting into the Sherlock fandom, and I haven't forgotten about it sense. First of all, the premise is inexplicably lovely. I love magic realism, and I love works that deal with outward signs of inward emotions, and this is flawless.
Your writing is lovely. It's simple, descriptive, but not excessive; it has a nice flow. It's very pleasant to read.
Your understanding of their relationship is wonderful. I just...I really wish I could tell you more about why I love this story, but I can't...it sort of escapes me. It's just great. My favorite oneshot in the entire fandom, I think.
Excuse me while I go pillage the rest of your work! :)

Absolutely, stunningly lovely. This is a gorgeous universe, and the glimpses you give of a world so utterly different and yet so much the same are breathtaking in their subtlety. Truly excellent. 3

Amazing fic ... I wonder if this whole universe is your brainchild or if you got inspired by a book that I don't know about? This is amazingly elaborate for an AU, which is usually ... I don't know, change one fact, or throw them in another setting or something like that.
I liked the entire fic. The whole damn thing, from the little bits like the gem description to the characterization like Sherlock's loneliness and stuff.
Just a note, the links at the end of the page don't work. They won't, since it's ff dot net, although they will work on your profile. Not sure if anyone's pointed it out to you yet.
I would like to visit the links, though. I think it would be interesting material for my own story (original story, not fanfic...maybe).
Thanks for writing! I thoroughly enjoyed the fic )

I'm not even sure what to say other than this is the best thing I have read in a long time. I love how you described the wish stones and and oh man I have so many FEELINGS right now. This is so fabulous.
