Oh, this is cool and I should absolutely be sleeping but this was just too compelling not to keep reading. This is an awesome take on the world system of HDM (so neat that it takes places after the novels rather than in a different continuity entirely) and I'm super excited to see what's going to happen to all of them.

Your characters are just perfect: exactly the way I would expect them to act in a world with daemons, right down to Amarisa's hybrid nature and Mycroft's separation from his daemon. I am also very impressed with your knowledge of the scientific names of all these animals and I love how Sherlock's narration automatically adds them into any thought he has. I love your John so very much and it's just so typical of him not to see how amazing he is. His affable acceptance of just about everyone, regardless of their quirks, really lends him a solidity and strength of character that suits him very well.

I shall now be waiting eagerly to see what happens next!

Thanks! Also, the scientific names are a result of a university major in a biology subject, plus some judicious googling. And I figured in a world where daemons can say so much about a person, Sherlock would be sure to know almost everything there is to know about animals.

You are beautiful. Never change. <3

Wow ))) Can you give your permission to translate your work? Pleeease)))

Sure - into what language?

I'm certainly still writing - RL has just been a bit heavy lately...

I've just read this whole fic within that last week, and I now keep finding it strange that there aren't actually daemons in Sherlock. Your choice of daemons for both John and Sherlock (and others too but it really is all about them) are just so spot on. I've read other HDM fusions, and I must say of all of them I think you have really nailed their daemon's forms and the reasons for them. Not to mention the story itself which has a wonderful HDM vibe to it. Wonderful all around.

Thanks. I tried hard to get the right daemons for them.

Thanks! And to me, it just made more sense to put the events of the book a hundred or so years in the past - it clears the stage for my own storyline, you know?

And I'm so pleased you like the humour. One of my favourite things about Sherlock is how he and John are forever joking and snarking with each other, and I tried to keep that feel.


I just about leapt up and did a happy dance when I saw that you'd put up Part Thirteen - I was coming by your journal to re-read and lo and behold, there's a new chapter.

A PORNY chapter! :D

Thank you sooooo much for updating! I love love LOVE your HDM-verse, the way it messes with canon - how John and Sherlock are perceived differently than in canon, not because their characterisations are off, but because their daemons add to what people know about them. That's so interesting to me, and I've never seen it done better than here. I love what you do with the daemons, and the world-building that happens around them is amazing. Bravo!!

Also, PORN. Even better, daemon-y!PORN!!! *drools*

Thanks! And I must admit, my dirty mind always wondered how daemons fit into sex in the HDM world...

Awesome fic! I've recced it and look forward to the next update!

Such a fun story. I love how you weave in the series one events while still making it your own story. What you've done with this crossover is excellent.

Update soon?? :)

Wonderful!! I love it! I didnt really think this crossover would work but not only you've probed me wrong you've done a AWESOME story! I love all your fics, I've read all. Love them.

Took me a couple of days but finally read all of this and loved it, just wonderful:)

Really looking forward to next part.

Wow...This was perfectly brilliant. I just spent the last few hours doing nothing but reading this, and I have no shame about it either. XD I want to read it again but I really should go to bed. :) Cannot wait for more!

This is very well thought out. I greatly enjoyed reading it and hope to see more soon.

It's so, so wonderful to get more of your marvellous story!

It's as satisfying and happy-making as ever. :D :D :D
