This was a lovely story. I liked how you wrote the boys and the friendship between them even if they are upset and Sherlock was so sweet at the end. Well done :)

I really enjoyed this. I thought the fight between Sherlock and John in the first chapter was very realistic. I could feel just a hint of Sherlock's desperation to get John out of the flat, trying at first to be gentle in getting him to leave before picking at subjects he knew would hurt his friend. I adored the scene when John came back thinking Sherlock had been shot. That was really well done. I don't think John owes Sherlock a shirt though, because it was ruined by bullet holes before John ripped it :) Thanks for writing this and sharing it with us!

You really should write more multichapter fics
Keep up the writing!

Quick note, wouldn't the jacket and shirt have already been ruined? He was shot after all and and the vest was on the inside. Sherlock still wouldn't have wanted the buttons torn. It does seem a bit more awkward than The Pool though, actually tearing the shirt lol

Wow! Took a nosey at your profile after your lovely review and when I saw you'd written Sherlock fic AND that it was whump, well I had to take a look! And I'm glad I did!
This was an awesome fic. Gripping, realistic and believable. You captured all the characters perfectly - especially John's POV but also Sherlock and even Lestrade. The scenario was very believable and the whump was just delicious.
I love how you had Sherlock go for the emotional jugular to anger John into leaving. I could totally see that that was what he was doing but it was very in character and very believable. And so totally like him to present Lestrade with a fait accompli! :D
The whump was lovely and you descriptions very realistic, in fact your description throughout is not only detailed but lyrical - John's internal observations of the scenery in the first chapter were beautiful and atmospheric.
Overall, I loved this fic. It's desperately hard to find good hurt/comfort fic written by people with not only good characterisation but good writing skills in general. Even more so in the Sherlock fandom which is soooo slash-heavy! :lol:
Hope to see more Sherlock fic from you. And perhaps a cheeky Doctor Who story or two? ;)

This is very good. An authentic sounding argument. Good work.

Oh, this was lovely. It was very in character and I love that you pointed out how much it shows about their friendship/how much Sherlock cares that he offered to help. I also like (well, appreciate anyway, I suppose it's an odd thing to "like"!) that Harry didn't just go sober in one go, that she had a relapse, because it's more realistic. But I'm so glad she did call and she's determined to do it eventually. :-)

I really, really enjoyed that.
Of course Sherlock would annoy and antagonise John to keep him out of danger; that whole scene reminded me of when he did more or less the same to keep John away before confronting Moriarty in 'The Reichenbach Fall'. John's reaction when he heard the shots was also completely in keeping with his character and I smiled when Sherlock pointed out that it was obvious he hadn't meant what he said (about Sherlock just being a project) given how worried he was when he realised Sherlock had been shot.
I must admit I was expecting something like that - and for Sherlock to be wearing a bullet proof vest - when John commented on his suspicious weight gain. It didn't take anything away from the story though and in fact I found it a nice nod to how much attention John pays to Sherlock and the way in which he too observes little details, particularly when it comes to his best friend.
You had everyone's voices absolutely spot on, including Lestrade, and the case itself was also really well thought out rather than just being superficial or a hurried attempt to set up the scene for the shooting itself and Sherlock's unorthodox way of keeping John out of danger.
I really liked the subplot with Harry too, it added another layer to everything and also highlighted that Sherlock *does* care when it comes to John and he can be thoughtful for his sake, or at least his own version of thoughtful!
There was just the right mix of humour, action and emotion throughout and it felt as though it could easily have been in an episode. You did a brilliant job of showing the warmth and affection of Sherlock and John's friendship without making it too sentimental or ever taking them out of character.
Great job :)
