Excellent! Nice to read someone who loves Lestrade as much as I do - and would like to see more of him in the episodes!

Like the runner analogy

This was very well written and a little unexpected. Most of the stories I've read with this setting/theme deals with John being the one in danger. Thanks for posting this.

Oh man this is awesome. Such a fantastic picture of John and Greg.

Big clue in the flash scenes after the jump.
Look up what it says on the Newspaper that Mycroft was reading.
See what you can do with that.

Oh wow... I... I've been reading a bunch of your other stories and "favoriting" them, haven't commented on all of them, but they are taking my breath away!
You are an amazing writer, with a firm grasp on the characters. I LOVE this one! Amazing how you managed to capture Lestrade's confusion, his emotions over his job and absolute need to figure out what happened to make sense of it all. And then using John to come to him on the roof... the absolute hell he was going through, though you didn't put us in his head, you used Lestrade's observations in such a way that we clearly knew what was happening to him.
This is so good. Thank you for sharing your talents!

I've read this one shot so many times that it might be sad. I absolutely love it (and your other works). I just got into Sherlock (well, I just caught up to TRF), but I already adore Lestrade! He's absolutely amazing, and I think you write him very accurately. It was very poignant and well written. I loved and hated that it was John who talked him down. Poor guy. Anyway, this is such a fantastic story! Have a great day :)

so If is so dramatic, but when John talked about the cctv festival, it's just hilarious. Really. I've the picture of Mycroft with popcorn in face of a big screen and I can't help myself, I just laugh for entire minutes. And then, John said he was a poor rescuer and I think I'will cry. My god, I'ts a so beautifull bittersweet story. Alway at the limit between laughter and tears, and it was one of the most beautiful I read on the subject of "after Sherlock".
Thanks for this fic!

Wow. This is the most powerful thing I've read for a long time. As always, beautifully written, and conveying the characters so clearly and vividly. Truly engrossing, to the extent I looked up after I'd finished it and half expected to be there. Incredible.
| editor frog chapter 1 . 6/6/2012
Lovely! I can see something like this happening, especially if Lestrade were to have his warrant card revoked.
I particularly liked John's bit about his mind, body and stomach. For all we've studied Lestrade, Molly, Mycroft and even the so-called team at the Met, I find it odd we have not explored John's reaction to the Fall and its aftermath more in-depth. Possibly a challenge for us both?

I loved this. It was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Well done.
| Gwaeros chapter 1 . 6/5/2012
That is beautiful. Really. There are no words. I love all of it, particularly this line:
"My mind thinks I'm down there on the street, looking up. My body thinks I'm in Kandahar. And all of me thinks I'm going to be sick, so mind your shoes."

I'm sure it's getting tiring to hear from me but I must say it: brilliant work as always! The angst, the characters, oh it's wonderful.
