From the first chapter, I planned to review every single chapter, but I just didn't feel like stopping. It took approximately 4-5 days for me to finish although I was reading non-stop like I would read as much as a can every passing period and lunch during school.
Anyways, since I can't write about every chapter now, I'll just talk briefly about this masterpiece (I was a shocked that you thought of deleting it. No!) as a whole. I cannot get over how it's not all just romance. Families, back stories, government conspiracies, what else am I missing, and even a damn good amount of life lessons (all very quotable) are well melded together to create this 236k novel. I just love showing off this novel to my friends, there will never be enough readers for this.
I just have so much to say (should've reviewed every chapter, darn) and I don't want to write an extremely long appreciation about your work, for I don't want you to tire out on reading this because I've always felt like I write excessively.
Let me just say thank you. This actually got me through this stressful week by making the skies clearer for me, even just a little bit. It has also inspired me to write again since I've been putting that off for awhile now. Right after I'm done submitting this, I will be gladly jumping to reading your other works.
This wasn't so brief, was it? Ah, sorry!
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention about characterisation, plot, dialogue, symbolism, writing style, and all that jazz. Just so you know, they're all brilliant.

Hands down this has been one of the best stories I have read in a while! I admire all the thought & work you put into this - it really shows. & I couldn't stop reading (well I did a few time because of school, sleep, & etc.). Well, I'm off to read the sequel.

I liked the suspense of the chapter. in the end it was awesome. so its been cool to see how you could make these two care for eachother.
| Doggi-chan chapter 39 . 7/4/2013
I was happy to see the beginning of jim and Sherlock.
| Doggi-chan chapter 38 . 7/4/2013
I really wasn't expecting to see Molly and James interacting again. I like the thought that James is not a completely horrid brother in fact he has tried to help Jim. I thought it was strange that you included Sebastian's thoughts in this chapter and how he views Molly. Actually everyone views Molly as this poor, silly child. It was getting on my nerves that people thought that. I know that Molly's is not exactly strong willed but she is not silly. I liked the ending of the chapter.

i didn't think that sally said anything that made me hate her or anything, she calls sherlock a freak all the time. i really wanted to see molly and jim together in this chapter. she was going to make it then sherlock comes to her. i am happy to see that you pointed out that she doesn't love sherlock anymore in addition to the point she is willing to wait for jim to come to her. well im almost done. i will finish this today.
| Doggi-chan chapter 36 . 7/2/2013
I liked that you have moved things along with molly and jim in respect to their separation. I really think jim is getting bored with his current 'girlfriend' so that is why he chooses to visit molly's flat. when you introduced Robert I really thought that you were going to have molly get serious with him. but that is not the case so i'm happy. James always says he is done with Jim but he always comes back. And we are almost to the last episode of Sherlock because of all the newspaper reports on Sherlock.
| Doggi-chan chapter 35 . 7/2/2013
I feel horribly for Molly. And I just thought the whole criminals trying to get revenge on Jim was hilarious because they actually thought it would work. And James come back into the picture. I really liked molly's reflections about revenge.
| Doggi-chan chapter 34 . 7/1/2013
I enjoyed reading an interaction between Mycroft and Jim. it was refreshing. wow, I really didn't like the way alcohol loosened Lestrade's lips when speaking with Molly. And found to be oddly self-serving of Jim to be bored when he went away with the reporter. I really felt sorry for molly, she lost jim. he up and left her. I hope this don't last too long.
| Doggi-chan chapter 33 . 7/1/2013
there is a lot going on in this chapter. I find it funny that Jim thinks of Sherlock's private life as a television show. I was upset about Jim and Molly's argument but I can understand why you are doing this. They are essentially different, brought together by Sherlock. Jim has it stuck in his head that he only wants Sherlock and molly has found the strength to move beyond that and to be semi-happy with Jim. But is this an equal partnership, in this moment. Sure they made some progress but when you get down to it there are certain issues that haven't been addressed, which are finally brought to light here. why does molly continue to be with Jim even though Jim has made it clear that he doesn't want or need her. Earlier in your story Jim had an epiphany that because Sherlock, Mycroft and his brother all had a John, that he needed one as well to be better than Sherlock and he chose Molly for it. but now some chapters later, does this revelation still apply. Jim is a wanted man he cannot go out into the city because he might be recognized. molly is his distraction from his boredom or she used to be but now he really is bored around her. So how exactly are you going to push this couple past this point of tension between them, everything cannot be solved between the sheets.
