Part Eight

Oh God, I don't ever want this to be over because it is far too awesome for words, but at the same time I can't wait for it to end so that I can put it on my Kindle and have it with me always. :D


Thanks! And this obviously not the end (there's still some Holmes grovelling to come, after all), but I the end is certainly in sight.

Oh this is so totally made of win. Moriarty is dead (wtg BAMF!John), they've been rescued, and Anthea/Jane is so going to be insisting that John be their go-to ass-kicker from now on.

Now all that's left is the official clearing of their names and figuring out how much they're going to guilt trip the "Lords of Idiocy".

Btw, friending you 'cause all of your fics are just plain awesome.

Thanks! And I could just imagine Jane/Anthea saying 'oh and by the way John, there's an opening in the special forces - are you interested?'

Please tell me there is one more installment (at least).

This is my favorite of the BAMF!John fics I have read. Thank you.

Oh, this is certainly not the end - there's still Holmes grovelling to come, after all...

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I've been waiting for what feels like forever for this installment. Can't wait for the next one! John is such a BAMF. DAYUMMM! :-D

Frabjuous joy! This update made my week! I love the story, the detail of the character development and...well, everything!

epic win for John killing Jim and for Anthea being kick ass

Thanks! I loved writing John and Anthea as kickass action heroes who basically saved themselves.

I have to admit, John's question about Moriarty's childhood is something I wonder about on a daily basis. Well okay, not really, but I do wonder.

I love seeing John be bamf and efficient, and Anthea being as kickass as possible, and Sherlock and Mycroft beside themselves with fear and ignorance of the situation. And Mummy being all 'please stop throwing sharp knives at my friends; it's hindering your rescue'. Nice.

And really, Moriarty, I think that's the nicest way I've ever seen you killed. I hope you count yourself lucky you're already dead, because I don't think there's going to be much left of your corpse. ^_^

Great chapter, and I'm so curious to see how everything gets unraveled and talked out between the characters. After John gets some much needed medical care, of course.

I figure that's the way John kills someone - Moriarty need to die, so he made him dead, end of story.

And Avra saves the day, of course, because I couldn't really picture John and Anthea getting out on their own, especially with John's injuries...

OMG... BAMFJohn.. you rock like a rocking thing.

I too wait for the grovelling to begin, John and Anthea deserve some serious grovelling.

Thanks! And yes, there will be some serious grovelling...

I love this story. Really and truly, every chapter of it.

A sharp twist, and Moriarty's neck broke with a loud snap.
John deserved that. No discussion, no questions, I will endure as long as I have to and then I will kill you.

Anthea gave that the contemptuous snort it deserved
Like she was ever going to leave him.

“You're a knife-thrower now?” Anthea blurted as he ducked back inside.
I love how she'd have believed him if he said yes here.

Perhaps because she felt like a sister in arms, and there was no shame in leaning on your comrades when you needed to.
After all they've been through together she is a sister in arms.

That's exactly how I picture John - if someone needs to die, he kills them. End of story.

Your John Watson is all that is right and awesome in the entire flipping universe. I can not even verbalize how much I'm enjoying this! Every time I try, it just comes out incoherent vowels. Please ignore me while I sit in the corner and make high-pitched dolphin sounds at your absolute gloriousness!

I'm a John Watson fangirl at heart, and it definitely shows :D

Ahh fantastic! I really cannot wait to read the next part!

Thanks! I'm loving the podfic, by the way...

AHHHH. Good job, John. That's right, Holmes brothers, you better feel like assholes. (...and I'm talking to fictional characters. Oh god). Mummy Holmes + forces retirees? She would.

You have an awesome creation here. I just love everything about it.

Also, Judi Dench should totally be Mummy in the actual show.

Now excuse me while I continue to flail like a madman.

In my head canon, Avra Holmes has friends all through the various special forces and innumerable positions of government, ready to grant her a favour...

Teams split off from the main group to look for safes, computers, filing cabinets – any evidence of Moriarty's operations.
Which includes all the evidence of John's (and presumably Anthea/Jane/Rosy's) innocence that Moriarty so considerately saved for them. How convenient!

I add my voice to the other cheers for Moriarty's demise, but I must say, what I'm really looking forward to is Sherlock's reaction when he hears about it. "He made a snarky comment about it being past two hours, so I broke his neck."

Yes, Moriarty's plan dovetails nicely with their need to for good, hard evidence to prove their innocence...

Aaaauuuuughhh, cliffhangers!

Anyway. I am continuing to enjoy this immensely. I love Johna and Anthea both being badass in their own ways, and their hysterical reactions to realizing they are free are just perfect.

I look forward to seeing what Sherlock and Mycroft have to say for themselves. I kept on wondering how they felt when John and Anthea kissed in front of them.

Compared to my previous cliffhangers, I thought this was quite mild...

And I must admit, the only reason I had them kiss instead of just hug was for the goldmine potential of misunderstandings...

♥_♥ this is madfe of win and yay. Go John! Get down with your BAMF self.

So uuuuh. Am I the only one wondering how Mycroft and Sherlock are going to react to John and Jane kissing?

You are not the only one! I don't think they will be a fan of the John/Jane kiss at all!!

WOW, I didn't expect John to get Moriarty so quickly! I kept waiting for Moriarty to spring back up. But if anyone could do it, it would be John.
So much BAMFacity. So much. I still can't express how happy I am to see Anthea and John going around and doing wonderful exciting things all on their own. AH, I just adore this story so much for that.

I figured that's the way John would do it - if he thinks someone should die, he makes them dead. End of story.

And I loved writing Anthea and John as kickass action heroes who basically rescued themselves...
