I am so glad to see this update! Brilliant.

Wonderful! Great to see this updated

I can't tell you how happy this makes me. Exactly what I needed after the Fall. I love this story so much.

'Exactly what I needed after the Fall.' A lot of people have been saying that :D

I get so into your series and then you start something else and I'm all "damnit, I want to hear more about that other one!"

And then I read the new one and the next update is for the old one and then I'm all "no, no, the other one!"

Basically, your stuff is compelling as hell and leaves me wondering what's going to happen next for days after. You tug on my heart strings and leave them in knots. In the best way <3

Glad to see you're updating. Haven't seen Reichenbach Fall, so I'm glad to read something without any spoilers. Lovely chapter and I can't wait for Moriarty's next move, especially if he DOES realize just how special John Watson is.

Thanks! And while this was mainly a fluffy/smutty interlude, the plot will return next chapter!

this always makes me smile and considering I just re-read them (and given today's episode) it was exactually what I both wanted and needed. Thank you so much and as always well done.

Thanks! I've been told my timing was good with this chapter :D

Is the timing of this on purpose? To give us all a little feel good tonight?

Raniel curled himself around Amarisa’s foreleg like a very small and aggressive guard dog.
Fantastic image.

Sherlock’s eyes widened with indignation.  “I am not sweet.”
This whole section was as sweet as Sherlock.

and with a lithe twist he hadn’t been entirely sure he was still capable of, flipped them over until he was on top of Sherlock, pinning him to the mattress.

He hadn’t intended it to be enticing, but Sherlock’s pupils dilated even further, and his mouth opened.

Oh John. Of course going a bit BAMF is going to turn Sherlock on.

The periodic table! HA!

John being ok with the DNA testing - just another example of why they're perfect for each other.

I guess we can only hope that Moriarty won't have a reader as good as John and so that will buy them some time.

Actually, the timing was just lucky :D

I'm exhausted right now because I stayed up until 6:00am reading this from the beginning because I just now found it, and so I'm probably a bit incoherent right now, and all my brain really wants to say is YES YES YES! AWESOME!, but this is so unbelievably amazing that I'm making an attempt at coherence even though all I want is to greedily demand more. I absolutely adore what you've done with this, and I'm beyond excited to see what comes next.
The characterization is brilliant. The interweaving of the two stories flawless. You've paid so much attention to the details and nuances of HDM 'verse and brought them subtly into the Sherlock world in a thoughtful and deliberate manner. I mean, sure a story where the characters have daemons would have been interesting, but you've really melded the worlds together. I'm so excited about this story!

Thanks! It was my beta who originally suggested incorporating the whole HDM universe instead of just the dæmons, and this story just kind of took off in my brain :)

Wonderful! I love the way you write John and Sherlock's relationship, it's the perfect amount of romance and affection that fits their personalities. And I still cannot get over how well you've woven the two canons to make such a well rounded universe. So glad to see this updated, it's one of my favourite stories.

Thanks! What I love most about the Sherlock/John relationship we see in the series is the friendly snarking, so I tried to incorporate as much of that as possible.

I am so excited to see an update to this fic! I've followed it (and loved it) from the very first installment. I can't get enough of our lovely boys and their daemons. So smart in the storyline, great description of Sherlock and John's relationship, creative, and sexy as hell. More, more, more, please! :-)

I just finished reading through the other chapters of this fic the other day so this is brilliant timing. I can't wait to read more.

I read this fic for the first time three days ago and I was about to leave a comment on the last chapter saying "it looks like you haven't updated in ages, but I hope you come back to this fic because it is SUPREMELY awesome." And then I wake up to this! A perfect snuggly fic to read after the stomach dropping Reichenbach Fall.

I'm told my timing was good with this chapter :)

I do love your x-men fic, but this one is my favourite and I am so happy you published another chapter. <3

I think this might be my favourite story as well - it's just such a fun sandbox to play in.

Lovely. I love all of this--the details of the world, John's alethiometer skills, the lovely interactions between the daemons. Gorgeous!
