Reviews for The Memoirs Of Sherlock Holmes And Luna Watson
Luna.T.Lawliet chapter 1 . 7/14/2015
Hello Stella,
I'm sorry that you found this first chapter a little racist... You see, when I began to write fanfiction of this sort, I decided that I would stay as true to the actual stories as humanly possible while including my own character Luna in. If you ever read this short story as it's original copy without my editions, you will see that it has hardly been changed; I couldn't force myself to change the story too much as that, in my eyes, would be not only butchering the stories beyond recognition but it would also be completely against the point.
My aim to provide the stories as close to the originals as possible while allowing my Luna to run a muck within it's pages.
The stereotypes which you see were crafted by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1926 when the story was originally published; my only fault here is that I did not take them out however that would be changing the entire feel of the story.
My apologies for your feelings on the first story.
Beth

That was incredibly racist. Like I'm sure it was an accident but you had that guy exhibit literally ever negative black stereotype I can think of minus eating fried chicken. You might want to think more carefully in future about how you portray black characters. Good writing though.

Charming, chapter. Story handled deftly.
The whole Memoirs.
When you first recommended it, babe, I didn't think I would really enjoy it all that much. Admired, but didn't really like Conan Doyle's originals. Your reworking.
LOVED IT. :)
Only one conclusion possible.
The difference is the addition of a humanising touch. Luna. In short, you.
A remarkable piece of writing by a remarkable young author.
Ma chérie, tu es incroyable.

A very good story, at times, great, babe.
Loved the Luna bits, as always. You've taken a story, added a character, who has brought a depth and warmth that wasn't there before.
An achievement to be proud of, sweetness.
I hope you are. xxxx

It's strange, at first impression, the contrast between Luna (very C21) and the men (oh so C19) and their outlook jarred, but now I'm beginning to enjoy the clashes and tensions.
Still know whose side of the divide I comes down on and it ain't Sherlocks, babe.

I know, I'm on serious catchup and you wrote this like...ages ago, babe, but I'm doing my best. Anyway, Golden Pince-Nez, didn't think I wad gonna like this, but, you know what, sweetness, I really do. Sherlock's still a right royal pain, and Watson, not the sharpest knife in

An interesting contrast with the previous bridge chapter, sweetness. Although the result here was more intimate, it felt far more formal. Less spontaneous and natural, it lacked the tender romanticism of the earlier piece.
Good period writing, but for me it lacked warmth, princess.

Sorry, gorgeous, had to happen, I suppose, I didn't like 'Dying Detective'.
Why?
Relying on the murderers arrogance to entrapped him. Not only cliched but weak. The story premise wasn't strong enough.
Even the character work at the end wasn't up to your usual standard, princess. Definitely not your best. Not bad, but you can, have and will do far better.

Loved it, princess!
Better than gables. The characterisation of Luna was, of course, the highlight. Beautifully handled. Fiery, sexy, girlish, smart, complex and utterly fascinating. Wonder who she reminds me of? :p
You should be very proud of this little bridge.
It was awesome.

Just finished '3 Gables',sweetness.
Let's get the negatives outta the way first. Victorian England, not my cup of tea, hypocrisy, YKTR. Holmes, arrogant, patronising. Yeah, babe, I know kettle, pot, black.
Now you may have gained Conan Doyle's gumshoe a convert here. I'm warming to the guy. Maybe it's the humanising effect of his nascent relationship with Luna, which you captured beautifully. The subtle tenderness, of both the love and the writing completely captivated me. You portrayed the tenderness with skill and feeling. An impressive piece of writing. Deftly handled, I congratulate you, sweetness.
