I like how, mid-strop, you show what's going on in his mind underneath all the histrionics. He may be a giant five-year-old in some respects, and doesn't handle his emotions terribly well, but there's still a giant heart under there. I particularly loved the moment with Mrs Hudson at the end!

I really enjoyed this; thank you. John being patient with and supportive of Sherlock is always a favourite. It's lovely to be reminded of how important Mrs Hudson is to Sherlock. The backstory involving Sherlock's granny's death was very sad indeed, and I found it poignant that Mycroft was yet again trying to protect a young Sherlock from himself or rather, in this case, the knowledge of the drama caused by Sherlock's negligence.

What a sad backstory. It definitely explains Sherlock's reaction to Mrs Hudson's response. Well done.

This rings so true to the characters...the voice is right :) Thank you for such a fine story

Sherlock's story about his grandmother is really cringeworthy... That was pretty good. I always love it when John comes home to find random stuff happening. Good job with the firefighters, especially the second guy who's just like, great, you handle this, "I don't deal with social problems" - liked that line. Very good job of the dialogue when Sherlock and Mrs. Hudson argued - that's not something they do often, but it felt like a very real argument between them and what each of them would say. John's reaction were also in character, trying to mediate and hugging Mrs. Hudson because she's crying, although I was a little bit surprised when Mrs. Hudson wanted John to go after Sherlock, I figured she'd just be glad he was gone for a little while instead. I suppose he did say "Don't expect me back," but it's usually pretty obvious when people say that that it's not actually going to happen.
Also good dialogue between John and Sherlock in the park. About the only thing Sherlock said that I didn't feel was in character was "I just want to feel sorry for myself!," which I found a bit odd and not something he would admit out loud like that - though not necessarily something he wouldn't feel. If he did admit it, I would expect a little more hesitancy and perhaps bitter self-deprecation on his part rather than just blurting it out. But the rest of the dialogue was quite good, and I was pleased at the ending when Sherlock and Mrs. Hudson hugged and both said sorry at the same time and ordered food was on its way. And John finally got to relax - although Sherlock couldn't promise anything...! So, a good fic.

Awww :) That was sweet. I like seeing this side of Sherlock. Not him in pain, of course. When he admits to things that sadden him, instead of bottling up his sadness, I mean. Most fics have him admit to love or happiness; it's good to see him show sadness and remore (that isn't Reichenbach-related). In the show, we see him angry, happy, BORED, etc. The only time we see him sad there is just before the Fall. I like your idea; it's very original :D

I liked this, and I'm really pleased you're back doing a bit of writing.
Poor Mrs Hudson; she does go through it with our boys, doesn't she?
I particularly liked the up-beat note at the end. Well done!
