Thanks! And in this case it's probably adapted...

YES THIS STORY HAS BEEN UPDATED!!! I love that John can read the alethiometer as good as Lyra does in canon. I especially love the affection towards Amarisa too~ And of course, Sherlock would give a dissected frog with reference to international health policy! Please keep up the good work~

Thanks! I've always thought Sherlock still gives Mycroft birthday and Christmas presents - they're just very disturbing.

Squeeee!!! A new part! What an interesting development, John "seeing" the meaning of the alethiometer like that.

And the moriarty-carl powers connection. Perhaps they were half-siblings, and carl looked down on moriarty... I'm curious about your answer. Great new chapter of a great story.

Thanks! The Moriarty-Carl Powers connection was something I toyed with once I realised I was going to have Moriarty raised by the witches.

Always a joy to wake up to an update.

HaHA! I knew it! John's line was perfect. The Grayson's are amazing and hilarious and just what I always expected from their family.

Thanks! I tried to drop hints that John could read the alethiometer...

Yessssss!! This is freakin' awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! I know I can always count on you to do real justice to John in your fics, and this one in particular hits all my buttons so hard! I'm so happy to see more of this, and I can't wait to see more of all your stuff!

I love writing John as being unobtrusively unique. I don't think I'll ever tire of it.

Oh my godddddddddddddddddddddd I love this storyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

*rolls around on the ground in perfect happiness*

This story just keeps getting better and better! Another awesome chapter.

I knew it, I thought John would be able to read the alethiometer. I think Grayson is wonderful and so funny and sweet.

Brilliant update, I love this story. Thank you :)

Oh god, too short, too short... I'm enjoying this story so much! :D

Yesssssss. I have been waiting for this moment. So awesome.

GAH! I love this so much, where to start... Eccentric!Daddy Holmes was lovely, as was Sherlock and Raniel's not-so-subtle pride and happiness at the recognition of John and Amarisa's bamf-ness. And his anxiety about John being used as a tool, or killed because of his abilities, was also really affecting.

Thanks! We see a lot about the famous 'Mummy' in fanfic, so I wanted to pay some attention to the paternal side of Sherlock's family.


I was so excited when I saw this on my f-list this morning.

I had a feeling that John would be able to read the alethiometer, but this was better than I expected. Also, I laughed at Daddy Holmes so hard- he was like a kid in a candy store... or Sherlock with a mysterious quadruple suicide/serial homicide.

Can't wait for the next bit!

I tried to drop hints that John could read the alethiometer :D

And yes, Sherlock gets his crazy experiments and enthusiasm from his Daddy.

And we see so little of Daddy!Holmes in fic that I felt the need to develop Grayson a little bit. And given how Aeliana is, I pictured Sherlock getting his enthusiasm and love of experiments from his father.
