Rating: R/NC-17

Summary: Written for a prompt on the kinkmeme: Before shoving him in the explosive vest, Moriarty fucked John, viciously. John makes it through the whole encounter with Moriarty and Homles via his own badass soldier nerves of steel, but afterwards, when he and Sherlock are admitted to the hospital for minor burns and abrasions and shock, the hospital staff find other injuries on John.

This is beyond painful but thank you for making this real. For not having anybodyx snap back to being fine in a few hours.

I'm trying to write this sort of trauma at least semi-realistically. I'm not sure how successful I'll actually be in the long-run, but I really wanted to avoid the 'magic fix-it'.



wow. This, like the previous chapters, is amazing. It is insanely well written, and just full of honest-to-god, raw pain. It sucks the breath out of you. Poor John. Poor Sherlock. Each of their perspectives is written brilliantly, and it's very believable and it hits very hard.

Thanks. I love it when people tell me that I'm writing their POVs well - especially Sherlock's, his is a little difficult to get a handle on.

I very rarely read rape fics, coz sometimes it can be done so gratuitously.

But your characterisations are amazing, as everyone deals with the aftermath.

Thanks! I'm always so pleased to hear my characterisations are good - especially Sherlock, as his POV can be a bit of a challenge.

I've actually been through this, and the feelings and reactions are very accurate. The one difference is that I couldn't understand why someone would do that, whereas John and Sherlock KNOW WHY. I wonder if that helps or makes it worse!

It was many years ago, and this story doesn't bother me - actually, it's comforting to see this handled so beautifully. I'm enjoying the story a lot.

I was trying to write this at least semi-realistically, which I may or may not succeed at in the long run, but I certainly didn't want to have any of the 'magic fix-its'.

This is so good, and so sensitively done - nothing gratuitous at all.

So many scenes are breaking my heart.

John's injuries.

Sherlock acknowledging that John is mostly comforting him, his conversation with Mycroft.

The phone.

Thanks! I figured John as the type to worry about someone else's pain and try to ignore his own.

I am still in love with this story, the reactions of everyone are so real, so believeable. Sherlock smashing the phone was particularly good - you can see how deeply he's been affected by the situation right there. Oh, and dear, dear John - he's lucky he has a friend like Sherlock there for him. &hearts

Thanks! Ir occurred to me that Moriarty would probably phone again and that Sherlock's reaction would probably be something violent.

This is excellent. So, so bloody brilliant. Poor John, and poor Sherlock. This is just... heartbreaking.

I look forward to your updates so much, and I think this was the best chapter yet. I held my breath during Sherlock and Moriarty's telephone conversation. So horrible, but so in character.

Looking forward to the next update! :D

Thanks. It occurred to me that Moriarty would ring again, if only to brag, and that Sherlock's reaction would probably be violent.

Wow this fic is incredible. I really like how believable and in-character everyone is. I often find stories that deal with darker themes sometimes become unrealistic, but this is really good. Hope to see the next part up soon :)

Thanks! Next part should be up soon!

I love you for writing this, even though I hate what's happened. It's all so heartbreaking and real. I love how professional and still human Sally Donovan is. I love how John is willing to take comfort from Sherlock as well as give it. I love how Sherlock is just trying to do whatever he can to help, even if he has to ask Mycroft for advice. I love how this is the first time since Chapter 3 that I haven't wanted to hurt Mycroft. I don't love Moriarty. I hope that one of Mycroft's snipers gets him when he's not paying attention and that he doesn't even get a chance to monologue first. Thank you so much for writing this fic and, as always, I'll be waiting with bated breath for the next update.

Thanks. I've probably written Mycroft very unsympathetically, but I really do think he has good intentions. It's just a bit murky as to how exactly those intentions will be carried out.

This fic has me flabbergasted. I don't know if there's anything I can say that hasn’t been said. It's so real, so believable, so raw and tangled that it has my heart twisting in my throat! I’ve been begging my friend to read it. And as I wait for more parts, I’ll just re-read it and be very satisfied. ;u; All the characters are soooo incredibly spot-on. And this is a fantastically brutal way to really get into their heads.

Also, when the pink phone rang I seriously jumped out of my seat and paced around the room for a second. xDD;;; Amazing!!

Thanks! The next part should be up soon!

This is one of the best-written sherlock stories around, to be honest. the characterizations are flawless and the descriptions heartbreaking.

My goodness... Trembling all the way reading it was completely not the purpose for pressing F5 on this page!> <
I could hardly breathe when the pain of Sherlock and John stung under my skin... Especially when Mycroft pointed out the fact that Sherlock was crying. It's fabulous to describe the scene through someone else's view and obviously you're a master of doing so!
This is just INCREDIBLE.

Thanks. It occurred to me that, as often as Sherlock fakes emotional reactions for the sake of a case, he'd probably get blindsided by a real one.

Incredible,though it's heartbreaking.
This is my favourite sherlock fanfic,well done!

Still love this story so much!

I eagerly look forward to the next installment!
