Lovely piece… I really liked Gran Rose, and I am totally with you; making John and Sherlock's relationship romantic takes away from its specialness!

Your story is lovely and so is the idea of Gran Rose! But I'm sorry to say that it's not anam-cara but anam-charaid. I speak Scottish Gaelic myself, and the word for "friend" or "mate" is caraid, then because of some grammar rules it's lenited after "anam" and becomes "charaid". I think "cara" is Irish Gaelic.

The idea, however, is very true. I think John and Sherlock love each other dearly, without it having to be sexual.

That was one of the best post scenes I've read so far. So much in character that it nearly took my breath away.

She sounds like a wise woman, indeed. I don't think I've ever heard Sherlock and John's relationship explained so thoroughly and perfectly. Indeed. Agree with you about them not having a sexual relationship, btw.

I think that is a very good look at our boys relationship. Loved it.
| librarywitch chapter 2 . 11/20/2013
What a wonderful word to describe them. Well done.

Oh I love this. I love seeing John through someone else's eyes, a different character who knows him so well.. after the fall like this. Sigh. The angst was good... very good... and heart breaking and terrible and beautiful!

Daily dose? I only wish I had stories this good every day.
| Hummingbird2 chapter 2 . 11/3/2013
That was so heartbreaking, and absolutely beautiful, thank you.
| NightFuryofGallifrey chapter 2 . 11/2/2013
... that was not what I was expecting when I got excited to see a second chapter to this.
*cries some more*
And I'm not sure why my stupid self thinks it's a good idea to listen to the heartwrenching tracks from the Series 2 soundtrack while reading angst. DX
I would love to see more with Gran Rose. :) She is certainly a fun character. :) Maybe one where John takes Sherlock to meet her?
Anyway, great job. Thanks for the tears. XP

I like Gran, too, so I am happy to see her again. Her support of John is wonderful, and I'm really happy that he had someone to go to.
I can understand your craving for angst... I get that a lot. ;)

She's cute. I really like her.
| Lady Juse chapter 1 . 11/1/2013
YES! I am someone on the front of full on support of the Holmes and Watson Bromance.
| The Wayfaring Strangers chapter 1 . 10/23/2013
Yes! Yes. yes. That's a wonderful way to address the issue. I applaud you. And John's grandmother is great.

*happy dances* Love it! /Anam cara/ is a perfect way to describe John and Sherlock's relationship. I've often thought that they're soul-mates, they're perfect for each other - but in a completely non-romantic way. However, it's really difficult to use those terms without people thinking romantically. :P "Soul-Friend" is so darn perfect.
And you can get up on your soap-box any time you like. I'll be up there with you, probably. XD
