Morning sex, nice. John/Sherlock's Father bonding, cute. John being able to read the alethiometer (called it!), vindicating.

Expositionary cliffhanger...

It made my whole fucking world explode with disappointment.


I've got it bad for this story. Please don't leave me in withdrawal for long, brilliant, amazing, stupendous writer!

Thanks! I tried to drop hints that John would be good with the alethiometer...

i love a important john!
awesome! awesome!!!!!!!!!! *______* still in love with this fic! really!

*claps* Oh this is wonderful! I love this story so much. Every new chapter is the best treat.

A confrontation with Sherlock and John's family would certaintly be interesting. :D

Thanks! And the way I read John, he doesn't have much contact with his family now - as he said, he loves them, but he doesn't like them very much.

OoooOOOOoooooooh! And also WU OH! Special!John is SPECIAL! :D Everybody better swear to an oath of secrecy about his talent!

EeeeEEEeeEEEeeeee! I LOVE John being special (because of COURSE he is!) and he was already pretty damn special but now he's super extraordinary special!

*hugs you*

You rock the Special!John house. ;D

Thanks! I love writing Special!John...

Oh! New chapter, best reason to remain in bed for a moment longer to read it^^and it is fantastic! Loved the sex is ridiculus banter, and the alethiometer reading and and, simply everything! Great new chap. Love it XD

Thanks! I like writing them banter in bed - it seems to say more about how close they are than any amount of sex ever will.

My only criticism is that the chapter isn't long enough! I love this story so much, and the direction it is going in is fantabulous. I can't wait for more.

So I've actually read this story all in one sitting -- and put off getting sleep in order to do so -- and I have to say, I'm hooked. Probably my favourite thing is how you write the daemon interactions. But it was really interesting to see how you adjusted the episodes' plots to fit in with the new 'verse. Though I think I prefer that you're moving into your own plot now, rather than following the episodes.

Also, I love the little side-glances at HDM, just little details and references. They're just little things, but they still make me grin!

Thanks! I love writing Raniel and Amarisa - they're so much fun :D

Eeeeee! This update made me really happy. I love John being amazing and his sigh of "This is another thing people aren't supposed to do, isn't it?” The bedroom scene was super cute with Sherlock's new fondness for cuddling and his technical terminology. The revelation that Carl Powers was related to Moriarty is most intriguing.

Thanks! I figure at this point John's just kind of resigned to being awesome and amazing people...

This story continues to be awesome :D It's just lovely.
Grayson Holmes is so much fun XD And John being able to read the alethiometer just provides some more prove that John is unutterably bamf ;)

Thanks! I love Grayson Holmes - the way I ppicture it, Aeliana is where Sherlock got his stately dignity from, and Grayson is where he got his childish excitement.

Ohh, sweet saviour, poor John, it just doesn't get better, or is it Sherlock we should feel sorry for, I can't really judge that, he must be terrified!

Thank you for sharing this story, it is brilliant!

Thanks! And personally, I think Sherlock would be much more worried about this than John - the man seems very blasé in the face of personal danger.

This is wonderful. Every single part.

I say this with no hesitation: you are my favourite BBC-Sherlock author.

"John took in the expressions of shock worn by everyone in the room, and could only sigh. “This is another thing people aren't supposed to do, isn't it?”" Favorite line ever. Thank you for making my day.

I figured that at this point, John's rather resigned to amazing everyone...

So excited to see another chapter of this great story. You never disappoint.

Shit son! Eeeeee! :D :D :D I wish I could give you a more supportive review, but I'm too busy flailing happily. :D This is awesome, and you're awesome. Thanks so much for continuing! :D

I just re-read this whole story twice, haha. Because I am that cool. <3 It wasn't until later that I realized there was a new awesome chapter! I got super-excited!

I simply love this new one, too, especially the fact that John/Amarisa and Sherlock/Raniel got a bit of special time in the morning. ;) I love how Sherlock tries to deal with his feelings, the way he slowly realises just how much he and Raniel care about John and Amarisa.

And of course, John being amazing and wonderful and super-special-gifted. I just want to hug Amarisa and him, fate really does not give them a break.

Also, Sherlock's father is the coolest! <3

Now, I can't decide whether or not I want a new RoH chapter asap or a SF one first. *laughs*

Thanks! I figure at this point, poor John is just resigned to amazing everyone around him...

And I can't but picture Aeliana as being where Sherlock learned that dignified air he sometimes puts on, while Grayson gave him his child-like excitement.
