Ohhhh JOHN you adorable darling omg.
Seriously, after every chapter you write, I think, "I can't possibly be more in love with John, honest." Then you go and prove me wrong.

I am, at heart, a John Watson fangirl, and it shows :D

Yay more! Who needs coherent, constructive commentary when there's more. I am so going to re-read the entire story tomorrow when I should be working.

Oh, John! So clueless sometimes!

Loved to bits and pieces both parts. You've written the morning after exactly how I thought they'd be: Sherlock his old self, a bit uneasy at John's behaviour, and John ever so understanding and loving as ever.

Thank you for creating this story! It gave me a huge thrill to read "Asriel" ♥

Thanks! I could picture their morning after as Sherlock slightly freaking out, wondering what John expects of him now, and John just being lovely and reassuring without even meaning to be reassuring.

“What went wrong?”

Oh, John... He really doesn't have a clue, does he? Probably just as well, or he'd be worse than Sherlock, Mycroft and Moriarty wrapped into one!

Wonderful to get a new chapter - looking forward to the next one! I'm very curious if dinner with Mummy will bring out anything new regarding the prophecy! (And I hope Hasna's/Caedmon's infatuation with John/Amarisa won't create any problems...)

Thanks! I picture John as just being totally oblivious to how special he is.

Flaily-flail, flail flail flail! :D I got so excited when I saw you'd updated, and I wasn't disappointed! This is so good! :D <3

Thanks! I love incorporating all the little aspects of Pullman's world that rarely come up in crossover fic :D

Oh, good heavens, WHAT A GREAT UPDATE! Love your bringing in of something else unique to Pullman's 'verse - and love that "dust" now has a name.

And the romance - swoon!

Thanks! I'm having fun incorporating all the details of Pullman's universe - from "dust" to witches and armoured bears...it certainly gives me a lot of room to play in.

omg! i so exciting about how this will developing!!!
awesome plot!
and i love so much how John is so special!!!
Sherlock Jealous is cute! <3
great chapter

Thanks! I picture John as being very oblivious to how amazing he is.

Oh, John, you silly! Hold on tight to him, Sherlock, because he doesn't know his worth!

Loving this more and more with each chapter!

Thanks! I picture John as being just totally ignorant/oblivious to how amazing he is...

I know, right? John is just so adorable...

“What went wrong?"

Oh god, modest!John is my actual favourite. <3

I picture John as just being totally oblivious to how amazing he is...

Normal is such a matter of perspective. And so it never occurs to John that he's anything other than normal. You assume everyone is like you until proven otherwise.

I loved the morning after reactions and I'm glad you managed to include both sides. It's interesting to see what they're each thinking in reaction to the night before. But also the change in language with the shift in POV is the kind of thing that makes me just love this story. It's more than just what they're thinking directly, but how they think about the world. Their reactions to Mycroft's entrance for example: Poor John, it's never good when your new lover's big brother shows up the morning after. John tried not to feel as though he had 'just had sex with your brother' embossed on every inch of his skin and clothes
As opposed to Then, of course, Mycroft had to turn up and spoil the entire day.

Exactly! John doesn't think his sensitivity is anything special, because he's always been like this, and he would know if it was something out of the ordinary, right?

And I try to sort of channel the character when I'm writing so it really seems to be from their POV. Glad it's working :D

That was excellent! I cannot wait 'till John gets hold of an Aleathometer - he'll probably be as good as Lyra. Of course, that could cause all sorts of problems what with everyone and their mother wanting to use his abilities to figure stuff out.
