This is a fab fic, thanks so much for writing it.

I never want this story to end.

Aww...but I'm afraid it will have to end...eventually...

JOOOOHN, you lovely, lovely man. You're way too good for this world. <3
Wonderful chapter, lots of emotion and feeling. <3

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

This was such a lovely, lovely chapter. A nice reflection of where the boys are now, in regards to each other. And John not understanding, of course. So very much in character with everything else you've written. Thanks so much for this update -- I look forward to the next!

Thanks! I loved writing this fluffy morning-after bit...

YAY!!! You posted! And it looks _lovely_ - shiny shiny shiny!

Gorgeous writing once again! And the detail! I adore your attendtion to detail.

<3 <3 <3

And thank you again for your help :D Now I'm back on Semper Fidelis...

Ahahaha XD Oh John. "What went wrong?" haha~
And in the same vein: Why on earth would anyone be infatuated with John? I mean really. He's not much of a catch, right? Pff XD

I seriously love this story. I can't tell you how much. It's wonderful.
And yay! Dinner with Mummy Holmes :D Looking forward to it :)

I'm still waiting for Ragnvald to show back up though. I seriously hope he does :)

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

Oh John! Honestly, you write the best Bamf!John ever!!! I'm pleasantly surprised with this chapter, and you've left me on an unbearable cliffhanger. Hope you update soon.
And for future record, if you ever feel the need to write other Bamf!John fics, I'd be first in line to read them. :D

Thanks! I love writing BAMF!John.

This keeps getting better and better! Oh, John! His obliviousness is sometimes just so adorable^^ Great chapter! I've got soo much love for this story and the charas^^
till next chapter then^^

I saw you updated this at 2 in the morning, How tempted I was to read it then and there however I had to go to bed.
It's seriously worth the wait. Such an amazing world you've created. Thank you. =D

The last line makes me go "oh, John." while smiling like an idiot. :D Looking forward to the next chapter!

Really enjoying the story, thanks for the new chapter :)

If i were smiling any harder my face might cramp. I just love this story to bits, and I absolutely cannot wait to see Sherlock's and Mycroft's reaction to John and Aeliana, because you know the brother's are going to be all "wtf aren't WE your children woman?" Keep being awesome :-)

This made my rather crappy day so much better! A lovely, reflective chapter after the emotional rollercoaster of the last two. I feel like I can breathe again!

Oh, John. Lovely, lovely John. He's my favourite character anyway, and your version of him is just the most amazing, adorable and yet BAMF one ever. He's wonderful.

I love that you included both sides of the "morning after", and that both of them had their concerns and doubts. It was very realistic, especially after the emotional intensity of the previous chapter. I really liked that Sherlock and John were being a little uncertain around one another's reactions and thoughts, whereas Raniel and Amarisa just went straight into cuddling. Amarisa bounding down the stairs and knocking Raniel over in her enthusiasm was just lovely! Sherlock's amazed reaction to John wanting something so simple as a kiss made me sad-- I'm glad he'll finally be shown some human affection.

I did a bit of a fangirl squeal at the "Asriel procedure". It's another fantastic nod to HDM, and incorporating the idea of being able to see Dust through certain photographs is a fabulous link with the books. I'm really interested in how you've taken Pullman's canon of Dust and developed it further. This idea of 'sensitives' is intriguing!

So happy that Aeliana and the witches will be coming back. I can't wait to see the family dynamics of Sherlock and Mycroft with Mummy, and how she'll react to Sherlock and John's relationship. Tehalya cackling with laughter made me grin. Oh, Mycroft XD

I hope Hasna and Caedmon's infatuation with John won't lead to problems :( That's so sad for them (though obviously John belongs with Sherlock!), but possibly more sad for John, that he genuinely doesn't believe in his own worth, no matter how much evidence is presented to him.

Basically, gorgeous work, as usual. This continues to be my absolute favourite series in this fandom.

Thanks! I loved writing this fluffy little morning after, with Sherlock slightly freaking out and John being reassuring even without trying to be reassuring.

In the books, Asriel never mentions the name of the procedure they use to visualise Dust, so I didn't think it was a huge leap to assume he'd invented it.

i'm so happy you updated! love it! can't wait to see what happens next!

I'm enjoying this series more than words can say. This is a beautiful chapter and I love the little acts of love John gives so freely the next day, and Sherlock's understanding of Caedmon, and his gesture of possession, and Mycroft's reaction to the photo and everything else. :)
