Oh I love you... ISSUES... you know what we like.
Congratulations on this, wonderful piece of work. I've laughed and been on the edge of my seat more than once and many a night pondered where you were going with this.
Thanks for all the fun.

Woohoo, Miss K! That was some #ride! Love where you're taking their relationship & thought I'd be disappointed that no #realriding took place but actually you were right (as usual) to make them wait! It's gonna be so #hot when they eventually get down to #it so I assume he'll be all fixed & raring to go in the new story? Sooooooo exciting! Fav b#it - #thighclamping! Thanks so much for sharing this with us, you're a super star! Mwah xxx

Damp Squib of an ending and a total cop out. I mean really after all those chapters and the bloody shoulder, a bacon roll and a cup of coffee, shame on you.

I'm sorry to see the end of this story but the promise of a new one is a joy to anticipate. You are a good writer of both plot and character. Keep the stories coming...I really like the long ones.

Good God, you really like to build up the tension around their relationship! But it's lovely to see how they're so comfortable with each other! I wonder what Dempsey did, that he kept secret for Harry? I also like it how Harry is trying to take care of him (medication, sling...), but he's so stobburn... Really looking forward to the next story!

And there was me thinking that the epilogue would provide all of the answers!
I have no idea who that man at the end is! Someone suggested Paul Masters, but I'm not so sure, as the shame and embarrassment put me off that idea. Personally I still think that Paul might be a little angry at being the substitute, and for that reason I don't think that its him.
Maybe Robert Makepeace? as he is the only person I can think of who should feel embarrassed and ashamed over his behaviour. I'm favouring the idea that its someone we have yet to meet rather than a character we are already familiar with. But what do I now?
I am confused as to how Dempsey knew where to find the bronze cat statue, but that's probably just me being dense.
I really enjoyed reading that, and its certainly wet my appetite for your next story - so I hope you don't keep us waiting too long? In fact I insist that you post it ASAP, I need something to read on my train journey to work.
Keep up the good work.

Oh wow! Brilliant as usual Miss K! You certainly know how to get every emotion out of the characters (and us!). Not much longer I can wait for Dempseys shoulder to get better but so looking forward to the next story with anticipation, just don't leave it too long!

I'm sorry I haven't left a review in so long, but I have been reading and I've really enjoyed the story :) You've wrapped it up very nicely at the end here and piqued my interest for the next fic! I look forward to it :)

Great end to a fantabulous story! You put so much into your writing you make the reader feel that they are a fly on the wall watching everything happen. Fantastic plot too as well as all the relationship. I'm glad you've got another follow on story percolating away...you really can't leave them frustrated lol... Welldone and onto the next...hurrah!

I woke up to find this nice surprise in my in-box, yay! Nice wrap up to a fantastic story, Krato!
So the case has been put to rest, although, to be honest, I was way more focused on the relationship part (yes, I'm a hopeless shipper). The way you had them dropping their walls when they are away from work, but yet be professional enough to be able to work together despite their new (unresolved, might I add) sexual tension, was perfect. Once again you managed to write the tender moments without making them overly sappy. And, like always, you got their banter down to the t-not easy considering we haven't really seen them in a relationship on the show. And yet, the dialogues are totally believable. Great job on that!
That last mystery man who noticed them at the end, I have a feeling might have been Paul Masters, but I guess it could be a new character not yet introduced that might play a role in the next fic? Way to keep the mystery going!
I cannot wait to read the next fic. I'm glad it won't all be unicorns and rainbows, and there will be some conflict in the story-I also love a good dose of angst in fics. ;P
Thank you for the on-going stories. They are always so much fun to read.

Great chapter! We finally got to the juicy parts. The amazing thing is that they really didn't do much more than kiss, and the heat of the scene was scorching! Their banter stayed so true to their characters throughout, despite the change in their relationship. There were also a couple of lines that had me in stitches, one of them: "He had more wood than Central Park"... I just laughed out loud with that one.
My favorite part about the chapter was how at awe they both feel about their current situation. It is subtle and far from explicit, and yet so palpable (on both sides) it made it a really fun read. The semi-resolved sexual tension really works, and dragging it out is creating this incredible anticipation, both for the characters and the reader. It is kind of like in the show, but with a much salacious twist. Love it!
Very smart of Dempsey to "kick Harry out" of his apartment before they did something-his reasoning was understandable, and I'm glad you had him spell it out. The "wanting to be an active participant" makes total sense. Up to that point, I was kind of urging them to get creative and get on with it! I guess you'll string us along a little more. Damn you! It works! :P
The phone conversation at the end was the perfect way to close up the chapte r. And I really liked how Harry pondered on the sound of Dempsey's voice, wondering how she could ever find it annoying. Dempsey does have a velvety quality to his voice. The last line of the chapter made me chuckle: "Don't matter what time you get here, babe, we still ain't gonna make it to the office on time." Ha! So looking forward to that coming true in the next chapter!
Really, really liked the romance-filled chapter. Great job on the dialogue, and their becoming honest with each other. Those tender moments you described between them are just... perfect!
Thank you for writing this and keeping up the good work. Sorry the review took so long.

I've recently discovered the fanfics, and reading a lot of story's. I must say this story is absolutely one of my favorites! I really love the way James and Harry are showing their real feelings to each other. Hopefully his shoulder will be beter soon. I can't wait to read your next chapter(s)! Please continue writing...
