This was AMAZING! A perfect balance of Fluff and action blended with description. This was very useful to me as I will use a couple of techniques. I think you could have dragged it on for a bit longer, maybe done another big case. But I am glad I stumbled across this.

Just started reading this. So Far:
Is Sherlock in-character enough?I think they seem pretty in character.
Were the deductions accurate? I am amazed at how good the deductions are.
Was it descriptive enough? Yes, although Lestrade should have a (small) voice.

I just finished this story, reading at work! Couldnt resist. It must be one of the best Sherlock stories I have read. I loved how you described the progression of their relationship...it was truly amazing!

I cannot express how much I am enjoying the story so far!

I'm surprised Sherlock didn't go out of his mind as he had to wait 6-8 wks for his wrist to heal before getting another case. Or that he was able to resist going back to the yard in hopes of a case during that time.
I think the progression of the relationship was very smooth and beautifully written. I enjoyed how poetic and romantic Sherlock was and how protective John is. Thank you for writing and sharing. The story was a joy to read.

Okay, the ambulance crew is extremely incompetent. Over an hour and nine minutes according to the time stamps and he is still on scene. X.x Gah!
| Nevyn chapter 17 . 8/6/2013
Why do the ambulances in all the Sherlock stories I have read stay at the scene instead of imitatively transporting? It's been more than 23 minutes and it's still on scene. Medics are supposed to treat in-route. I always find this dithering around in medical scenes to be annoying. Course the only first hand knowledge I have on ambulance procedures are American, but they can't differ too greatly in Britain.
Sorry that sounded harsh but the ambulances waiting on scene instead of going gets annoying after reading it more than a few times.
It also seems a little far-fetched that it would take John 23 minutes to cross from his ambulance to Sherlock's, have Sherlock take his hand and hear Sherlock's admission.
Other than that, great part. I hope John tells Lestrade that he told him so.

This chapter was adorable!
You should put a break between Sherlock's 1st person POV and the man's third person POV at the bottom. The way it is now throws the passing off as it suddenly swiches perspective without warning.

I'm partial to 'my heart'. Though it might be a bit to fluffy.
"All right? Sherlock Holmes. And this is my heart, John Watson."
Yeah, maybe a tad too fluffy. But still romantic.
Lover, partner, better half, boyfriend, fiance, husband, intended. Human language can be incredibly lacking when it comes to needing a perfect word.

Wow, killing of loved ones to make the survivor's suffer. That is just sick :(
Great plot though :D
