What an adventureous romp through Johnlock-land! While I am not squarely in that camp, your beautifully written story had breathtaking moments that allowed me to grant the premise. However, I most enjoyed your spot-on characterizations of Sherlock and John and especially how you defined their friendship.
Thank you for a wonderful read!

I can't decide if I liked your story. It frustrated me to no end. Idioticy on both their parts.

First romantic, then heart-breaking. Loved the signet ring.

Excited to begin reading another one of your stories Sef. This beginning has grabbed me by the heartstrings.

I'm quite disappointed it took me almost 31 chapters to realize Rudi is a rather ridiculous name. Whoever suspects someone named Rudi of being a bad guy? *laugh* Anyway, I read your story very much in one go (meaning yesterday and partly today) and enjoyed it very much. It read a bit like poetry at times, full of metaphors, which is a good thing, since it sounded a bit...melancholic. Very fittig, in my opinion.
The first chapters, I admit, left me just the tiniest bit confused, because I thought the timeline was a bit difficult to follow but that was probably just me, reading too fast.
What else can I say? Ah yes, I loved the progress of the story. You didn't clear the mystery properly for a rather long time and I liked that, as well as the way you potrayed the characters (especially the distinction between Sherlock and non-Sherlock. I'm a bit disappointed with John, though. Not because of the way you wrote him, which I thought was very fitting, but because of his behavior. It took him awfully long to figure things out, but I believe that is expected, given the circumstances)
So I'd like to thank you for your story. It was a lovely read and I hope to read more from you in the future.

Mycroft is a wonderful bastard of a character and I'm really fond of him... and you stick to canon with him when he's buzzing around Sherlock... but I'm not sure about him and the attack. Let it happend, really? No second escape plan or european secret angencies deal? Mmm... I wonder. Might not be a good plan - politically speaking - to let terrorists have their way even if it's to catch them red-handed. The symbolic price might be to expensive to outworth a police operation, does it?

*frustration* again something I'm not able to catch: what about the arms inside the cameras? A detail but sometime it's tedious not been able to absorbe everything in a plot :(
(in case that was not obvious the first time, it's my level of english which is to blame here)
still reading anyway... still loving...

There is something else I now can pinpoint and which is tremendously part of why I love this fic: John and Sherlock's love is a men love. True *gay* love and not some story in which finally gender does not count ; or in which it's balantly evident that the author is female and is projecting her way of handling a relationship. Good, still good, so good!

It's good to re-read this passage now I know about Liesl. The first time was full angst (what is he doing with terrorists? Has he lost track of his sentiments along thoses terrifying months?) but I couldn't help madly smiling the second time.
This story is atrociously sweet and yet definitly no part of the fluff dimension. Oh you are talented for sure!
| kok chapter 27 . 10/23/2013
The postcards are soooo sweet... That the second time I read this chapter actually (I may have had a quick look yesterday night after my review ;) but I must admit I don't get the Rome part.
How John would have been supposed to get that if the postcards were to stay private? Err... yeah, because I might have had a bit more than just a quick look *blush*
English is not my birth langage so I probably let pass some important clue. I just want to say again how much I like this story and how full of love it feels, and it's good. *I* feel good!
| kok chapter 27 . 10/22/2013
It's very late and I really should drop the reading now... (how can I?)
And now I feel like an absolute shit coz I don't review your story so far and really it's terribly selfish considering the way I just *drank* it the whole evening. Wow, just WOW! Brilliant! Love the angst, the bittersweetness, the abnegation, the promises... The few words Sherlock used to describe what could have been their morning together back in Italy... a great scene and there are so much more I'd like to quote but I guess your already know your own story ;)
Anyway your plot is fabulous and the building of tension is masterly done. Thank you so much for all your work! I'll read more of you tomorrow and I can't wait! Bed is boring XD

Awesome story, paced so well! Some really heart-wrenching moments, there was no way I could pause long enough to review each chapter...had to hurry up and click that 'Next' button.
P.S. agates and jaspers are my favorite stones...
