Sherlock Fic - Reaction, Part Three
colourful, hills
Title: Reaction
Rating: R/NC-17
Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, and am making no profit from their use, more's the pity.
Warnings: Non-con and slash (Sherlock/John leanings in this part).
Summary: Written for a prompt on the kinkmeme: Before shoving him in the explosive vest, Moriarty fucked John, viciously. John makes it through the whole encounter with Moriarty and Holmes via his own badass soldier nerves of steel, but afterwards, when he and Sherlock are admitted to the hospital for minor burns and abrasions and shock, the hospital staff find other injuries on John.

Gah, this is amazing! You've captured their characters perfectly, and I'm itching to read more! I feel so sorry for John for what he went through, and so sorry for Sherlock, considering what he's just found out has happened to his friend in his own name.

*Curses Mycroft for being so ... right* I know he really needed to say something, and it wasn't as though John could realistically have hidden it, but he shouldn't have just blurted it out for the world to hear! Gah, the Holmes brothers are so frustrating!

Great chapter, I'm addicted. Need to see the next bit!!

Blessed Be,
Mogwai x X x

Thanks! I see Mycroft less as callous and more as just not going to treat John with kid gloves. He asked, so Mycroft answered.

Brillant I am loving this.


That was really good - in an uncomfortable way.

Mycroft particularly is spot on: his deductions are not exactly clinical, but matter of fact. He didn't condescend to John, didn't make anything of the rape other than as a form of attack, both physical and psychological, and gave a kind of backhanded support by saying how much John must have tried to get away. Being an army doctor I think John has the kind of mindset that actually would rather be told straight up than have anything sugar-coated, so he may not appreciate it at first, but I think he might understand Mycroft's approach.

The public airing seemed a bit off at first, but as he continued it actually made more sense. Given John's intent, he had to make sure he couldn't hide it. sherlock needed to know, and in his (blanketless) shock Mycroft would probably prefer to spell it out and Moriarty's intent by it, rather than Sherlock realising too late and cuasing unwitting damage. Lestrade and Donovan didn't necessarily need to know, except maybe not to let John overexert, but confidentiality and the threat of Mycroft would ensure they'd never breathe a word even above any friendship with John or threat of Sherlock ;)

long comment is long, but I am really enjoying this :)


That's exactly how I see Mycroft - John asked, so he's going to answer, it's as simple as that.

arrr more!!!! :D i'm in love with this series.

God i hated Mycroft for a minute there...very very good chapter, poor John, and i do wonder Sherlock's reaction to all of this, so are you going to write a chapter from sherlock's POV?
In any case, continue soon!!!

Thanks! And there will be some of Sherlock's POV in the next chapter.

Well, well. Although painful to read, your writing is so strong and vivid that I can't help but want more.

This is a nice bit, and I also love the pov when John is wanting to kindof curl up in Sherlock's coat and disappear.
"Something shifted in Mycroft's eyes like a stone settling on the bottom of a river, like an idea taking root. John looked away from him, trying to school his face to reveal absolutely nothing."

Thanks! The next part should be up soon!

That scene with Mycroft's deductions made my heart skip a beat... The way he presents his deductions in such a clinical manner, describing more graphically what happened then if he just came out and said "you were raped". That was just amazingly well written, but then again, this entire fic amazes me with each new chapter. This is an iffy subject matter, could have easily been off putting if it was written the wrong way. But the way you do it makes the thing fascinating without hitting squicks.

BTW, I also loved that last line where John is happy just to get in the last word and prove Mycroft wrong. Awwwww :) Poor dear. *hugs John tightly*

Thanks! And I just couldn't resist giving John the last word.

I cannot get enough of this story. It is heart-breaking, traumatic, stunning.. I could go on. I am beyond engrossed and I am ecstatic to read more.

Thanks! The next part should be up soon!

Gah, I want to hug John forever and ever (gently of course). Or I want Sherlock to hug him forever and ever. Or we could both just hug him. John needs a hug. D:
Again, WONDERFUL chapter. Written perfectly, very in character, and you have me really feeling for John again. Loving this story!

Thanks! And yes, John desperately needs a hug - I've been very mean to him.

I normally hate non-con and don't generally read it, but this story is amazing. Really powerful writing and excellent characterisation - I'm really keeping my fingers crossed for a resolution! It's been painful to read at times. I want Sherlock to turn into a BAMF and save the day/terroise the hospital/comfort John and generally make everything better so they can get their happy ending... I know this is wildly improbable!

Your representation of Moriaty's motivations is scarily plausible and you have Mycroft perfectly. It's an amazingly controlled piece of writing. I hope you update again soon! More! MOAR!

Thanks! I'm always glad to hear I have the characterisation down - that's what most worries me!

that and the other two parts are really really well written and I adore John and Mycroft and Sherlock and practically everybody except for the big bad M, even though you wrote him very well.

I can't wait to find out more, and I hope you will update soon.

*gives cookies to make you write faster ;)*

Thanks! Next part should be up soon!

Oh, my God. I love this. It's so painfully, brilliantly in character. Poor John - I can't wait to see the full force of Sherlock's reaction.

Thanks! There'll be some of Sherlock's reaction in the next part.

Oh, poor John, but I'm so glad Sherlock knows now. He needs him ;-(

There'll be some of Sherlock's reaction in the next part.

I'm a little nervous about the white powder sticking to John's wrists. Whatever it is, he's got it in his bloodstream now.

...I focus on details when I'm nervous. This story has me edgy as hell. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself until the next part goes up.

Next part should be up tomorrow! If all goes well, at least...
