Reviews for How They Fall

I have to admit this was really cool! I love the series as is, but this was definitely an interesting twist!

A great fic! I've loved Sherlock Holmes since I was very little and got to watch the (even then) old black and white movies. Have to say, tho, Basil Rathbone has been the best ever!

Looking forward to the new series in the fall. :D

Love your version of this episode ever so much better than what they showed us. Even tho we know Holmes is alive, Watson doesn't in the show. :(

Very nicely done. :)

Yeah - ummm you fixed a few holes there didn't you? Lol - I really wonder how they are going to explain a Doc getting all gullible - He would have insisted on attending the autopsy - and I can see him being concussed - but HE wasn't taken to hospital so far as we know - and John will notice if he knows zero staff, the fact they didn't secure him to a back board, or leave the body in place for investigation - and there is a huge difference between a freshly deceased person, and one who has been gone for 2 hours - it wouldn't fool John to switch bodies.
And, I have several friends in my life who are doctors - they all share an odd personality trait - they may fall apart after the show when others can't see - but during the emergency there is a distance. (and one just happens to be ex-US army - girl doc) I loved this story because you at least made the events make sense - why not call or text and warn them. I really love that you touched on MY first 'wait just a D moment here' when I read the first FF - so after you kill yourself - what guarantee do you have that JM doesn't kill everyone anyway - he isn't known for keeping his word very well - Why would SH trust him and if he has all that dang time for phony calls - how 'bout you call Your brother and have him send someone to those three people - he so kindly ticked off by name - (brilliant to give him your top 3 list too SH - I would have been saying - Anderson? Dear Sally? Mycroft? -at least mess with his head if he's gonna kill you)
I adore that you noticed some of that too - snicker - I solved it a whole different way with some add to canon dialogue - (in the middle of that mess right now) but still - I loved that it was so easy to fix with just a few statements to John - the fall is survivable - brain swelling would be likely COD -like a car accident - brain impact with skull -so the way you handled it was great. Nice job.

Great story. I love it.
Peaceful Defender chapter 1 . 6/29/2012
Wow! Great story! I like it when John knows more about the situation than Mycroft (LOL), and I like how John knew the truth from the beginning.

Would you consider writing a sequel to this? Maybe how John continues to play along with the idea that Sherlock is dead until they reveal the truth to Lestrade and Company?

Once again, this is very original, and I loved it!

HOLY CRAP. This... this was sheer brilliance. I loved it!

...My favorite line was "I'll make sure you're bored for a month." Because John would totally say something exactly like that... and it would be the only threat Sherlock would really listen to.

Thank you for this wonderful story. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

I love you.
I've always loved your fics (okay I'm a lurker, sorry about that) but I've been looking for a Reichenbach fic where John goes with Sherlock ever since I saw the episode in february, so I really love you for this.
