I hope you continue, and add more fluff to it

The analogy between Molly and pia matter is spot on. This is exactly the sort of comparison that a pathologist would make. I love the geekiness of this chapter.

This is absolutely hilarious. Molly is clearly the boss in her lab. I can totally see her in the role of Health and Safety champion. lol
A nit pick or more of a point of interest. We don't have ERs in UK. They are called AEs or EDs (Accident & Emergency or Emergency Department). There is in fact no A&E at the Bart's (since 1995). Just a minor injuries unit.

I love that picture of Molly, she looks so small and adorable
| Leonidas701 chapter 1 . 12/16/2013
I like that you've given Molly little personality quirks, like her urge to reprimand Sherlock for misusing the equipment.
Also, what kind of bottle was the acid being kept in if it has a normal bottle cap? Not to mention how tall it would have to be for Sherlock and Molly to both be able to wrap their hands around it at the same time.
Overall this was a funny little piece. You managed to make Molly act differently without making her seem like an entirely different character, and Sherlock was kept mostly in character, but I always saw him as being much more cold than he is presented here.
It's also very easy to get through, you do a good job of being efficent with your descriptions.
I guess my only real problem with this is that if Sherlock is supposed to be working in Molly's lab, then where is she going off to work?

For starters, I love this chapter. How you had Molly storm up (Molly-style) and tell Sherlock off (Molly-style) was perfect. Not only is this piece wonderfully in-character, but you work in some good character growth and evolution in a very short space. I love how Molly went from hopping mad at Sherlock to taking a fall for him (no pun intended!) and how Sherlock tried to apologize but just couldn't make himself.
A bit of a side-note, and probably completely irrelevant, but the part where Dr. Georges tells Molly to empty her pocket really, really reminded me of the scene in the movie Hugo where Papa Georges demands that Hugo, the protagonist, turn out his pockets, thereby revealing incriminating evidence of shoplifting. I hope I didn't just totally confuse you, but that gave me the strongest sense of deja vu. If you've never seen the movie, you probably think I'm crazy by now...
I also liked Sherlock's deduction about the instant noodles; very in-character for him and very clever of you. The part about the mustard on Molly's face made me smile in particular. And Molly doodling cartoon cats on napkins. That *would* happen.
Keep up the good work!

I think just died of second-hand embarrassment for poor Molls there. I've really grown to love your characterization of her over the past few days, and I think my head canon is morphing. :)
Firstly, like in your author's note: MOLLY HOOPER IS NO DOORMAT! That's better. I like how you've characterized her, as I've said before, timid but not afraid.
The entire paragraph about her impression of Sherlock had me giggling for quite a while. That seems to be the normal response to him (unless of course you're John Watson)
"The protagonists in her drama had finally gotten together." Molly seems the type to like her TV programs and get a little invested. Little nods like this are what I love about your work.
"Have got." Oh, I love his little infatuation with grammar.
"Ordered three espressos." Don't worry, Molls, I think I would have done the same thing. :)
The only thing I didn't think was in character was Sherlock's shout of 'hey!' I don't know why, it just struck me as odd though I feel like he used it in the series somewhere. Hmm...
Overall, fantastic job writing! I absolutely love your portrayal of Molly, and I can't wait to see what you do next. :)
| darkaccalia520 chapter 4 . 11/24/2013
This was quite an interesting one. I really love how you think of these things. Anyway, I remember learning about the DNA genomes, but I don't think (or at least don't remember) the Sleeping Beauty Transposon, so I always appreciate the science lesson in your stories. I always feel smarter. :P
So when dear Sherlock sees the interesting drawing on Molly's whiteboard, I can certainly understand why he's shocked. I love how Molly acts, how she's trying hard not laugh and how she actually forgets her shyness and embarrassment when things get going.
And I totally love the slight play on Johnlock here. Too funny!
But you know, when Molly finally explains things here, it does make sense, and it's really cool how Sherlock did awaken him...or rather, his potential. LOL...I'm not sure I'd be able to draw my two male friends kissing one another, but it's too funny Molly did. Of course, it was not her idea to actually put John in a dress...but she did provide the dress. Which makes me wonder why Molly has a pink frilly princess dress, but perhaps that's another story for another time. ;)
Really, it was the little texting session that brought this all together. It's almost too bad John could not have confronted her in person, but the text was great. It's too funny that Molly couldn't stop laughing about it. And I loved the fact she wasn't positive Sherlock had gone through with it. Oh, dear; I can certainly understand her worry when the first aid kit is mentioned...and the fact he wouldn't answer makes it worse.
So glad Sherlock showed up when he did. LOL...too funny that Sherlock actually managed to get him in the dress while he was asleep. He must be a sound sleeper. And I'm surprised Sherlock didn't know that you never, never sneak up on an ex-soldier like that. They're first reaction is to harm. It makes me wonder, though, if John knew he was hitting Sherlock or if he thought it was an attacker or something. Or if he was just so mad, he hit him. I guess it doesn't matter because in the end, Sherlock and Molly had a bit of fun with it.
Yes, very silly, but very cute. I really can't wait to see what you come up with next. Well done. :)
A couple of things:
Oh hello Sherlock-Oh, hello, Sherlock
'Sleeping Beauty'." Sherlock finished off impatiently-'Sleeping Beauty'," Sherlock finished off impatiently
| NeoMiniTails chapter 4 . 11/21/2013
This may be my favorite chapter that you've written... maybe because I've heard of the sleeping beauty thing before... I still know next to nothing about it, but when you write, I feel like I am gaining knowledge about everything. _ **smiles**
Everything about this is hilarious-and I loved you set up each moment. Unlike many people, myself included, you have the most wonderful comedic timing. The part where Sherlock had been drawn in, kissing John-her denying it-the annotation clearly saying it was-that was brilliance at its best.
When she explained the explained the reason for the drawing, it really did make sense-even to a common folk like myself. When it comes to science, I am an idiot. I should've paid more attention to Bill Nye and my classes.
Later, when he forces John into that dress, uses a mannequin to wake him (that part may need to rewritten as the way it is now, I assumed Sherlock bashed the mannequin into the head of John... a few times... still quite the image, but I doubt that was what you were going for)... anyways, I laughed so hard at that...
Your emotions fit so well and I find myself feeling their joy, happiness, and annoyances...
I also loved the friendship shown in this chapter between Molly and Sherlock, a bit different from other chapters.
Another awesome job,
Until Next Time,

So I'm reading this chapter and I'm so confused because I could've sworn that I had it then I look at my review for chapter one and realize that I had reviewed the third chapter rather than the first. I don't know how that happened so this following review is for the chapter that I apparently skipped. haha.
Your opening to chapter one is so interesting and perfect for the story that follows as I have read the two chapters after this. I love the fact that you start off with getting the facts straight-letting us know that Molly is sane enough to have been extremely bothered by his antics the first time that she met him.
Whenever I read your story, I find myself having this little face that looks I'm about to laugh-because I either am about to or snorting like a dork. For example, when you mention that his conduct vexed her and then she wonders (how the heck did he always get better results...)... I would probably assume he was making up his own results, but that part made me laugh aloud.
Aww... i was hoping that this chapter was for me to get encouraged to spill some acid. **sounded like fun** **sighs**
I seriously love the way you portray Sherlock... though I've never seen the show, I recently watched the movie, the newest one-which I loved and your characterization is perfect. I love the sulfuric acid part and his assuming that she's trying to be like him. That douche...
haha... The chapter was amazing... I love seeing a more authoriative Molly which doesn't happen very much in later chapters. It was certainly a reading to behold... I was wondering how she'd react after everything sett;ed and your writing of that part was amazingly funny.
There were so many great moments.
My favorite part would be the ending as you always tend to have great endings but where that day was the day that Sherlock begun to trust her.
Although I said in my first review of this story that Molly reminds me of me,,, Sherlock also reminds me of myself in many ways... I tend to be a know-it-all... always correct people's grammar (including kids learning how to talk, my mother, my friends... which drives them crazy), I know that it must be super annoying. _ I am also a genius, but I'm such an idiot that it would be make for a great comedy.
Anyways, good job as always!
Until Next Time,

Okay, first I must commend you. Either you're a medical student (which I suppose could be possible) or you've done your research. I studied the brain in school and even had to dissect an animal or two, but I wouldn't really no the first thing about performing an autopsy. So I am very impressed.
Anyway, I love that poor Molly is doing Sherlock's bidding on New Year's. Also love that Molly doesn't really like the dissection room or the smell. I don't blame her. That's a smell one never forgets, and it's gross. And I don't blame her for not exactly enjoying her cadaver's company. But I do love how excited she gets about the brain. Oh, and I love P!nk, so I approve of her music selection as well. :)
I also loved that as she's inspecting the areas of the brain, it leads her to think of the Sherlock brain, which I think we all agree must be very impressive. I'm surprised Molly didn't fancy the thought of being the one to dissect his brain when the time comes, but perhaps that's a bit morbid. Anyway, how she muses at the perfection of the Sherlock brain, despite the lacking of emotions. I love how she essentially provides roles to everyone via the parts of the brain. I chuckled a bit when she got to Mrs. Hudson's role being the one to clean up all the messes. LOL about Sherlock deducing from beneath trash, though.
I do like the thought of John being the tough, protective layer. No, John might not be terribly tough, but he'd defend Sherlock to the death and he is quite important. Also love Mycroft being the skull.
Now, Lestrade...I was thinking the pia mater (nope, I didn't remember what it was called, though), but then I agree with Molly that it doesn't really fit him. The hair is a better choice. Molly is the pia mater, but I love how she's not quite sure she is.
LOL...I love when she finally remembers that this is an emergency dissection...with a little help from Sherlock, of course. I'm surprised he didn't try barging in on her and the cadaver. I do love when Sherlock finally finds out the results and Molly tries to tell him her joke while he's deducing. That was really a sort of cute scene, and I felt bad for Molly when he snapped at her.
Oh, but the end was fabulous. I do love the moments when Sherlock finally does something right. And I don't mean when he is right because he is. I mean when he does something that seems right...like he said there. That was just perfect. I really loved this., Well done. :)
A few things:
There was no furnishing save two trolleys-This seems a bit awkward to me like you're missing a word; however, that might be a cultural difference there. In the US, we say save for two trolleys, and if it were mine, I'd have a comma after furnishing.
sounded like "Hurry-sounded like, "Hurry
yelled back "I'll-yelled back, "I'll
would you shut it!-would you shut it? (or if you wanted to emphasize the exclamatory part, you can do ?!)
