Aytgyhjk! An update! :D

I can't begin to express how much I loved it - especially the references to Will and the knife's story. It really tugs on my heartstrings.

Thank you for another lovely chapter!

yays, an update *yays!!!* I'm glad to see it, and that the plot is thickening! *eep!* I can't wait for more and to find out what Moriarty's final plan is.

You've posted a new chapter!!

You've just made my day. Thank you.

Thanks! And indeed, Moriarty and the guillotine is not a combination that would put anyone at ease...


So happy to see an update on this story. Keep up the good work!

I can barely coherent for how excited I am about this chapter!! I KNEW it was the knife and I'm SO HAPPY OMG it's teh KNIFE and aetnaetnatnsed!!!!1!

This was worth the wait, though I hope the next chapter won't be as long! (Take your time, make it awesome.)

this part of the comment is mostly meaningless but I want to tell you how all-a-keysmash I am about this fic. It is SO GOOD. And I've started re-reading HDM too.

*flails of joy* I just re-read this yesterday thinking how much I wished you would continue, and there you are! It's lovely, thank you!

Random question: where did you come up with the names for everyone's daemons?

Thanks! And the names for people's daemons is deceptively simple - I just use a fantasy name generator until I find one that seems to fit. It can take a while to find something I like, though...

you updated!

*does the update dance*


I love the use of Pullman's cannon. I do have a question though if there are natural portals between the worlds why doesn't Moriarty use them?

From my understanding of the books, it seemed to imply that the natural openings were very hard to find. I mean, look at Will's father; he wandered through one and it took him ten years to find another.

Plus, with the angels closing all the doorways, I imagine that number of open portals is slowly shrinking...

I'm not sure why, since I've seen this story on several rec lists, & I've read (& enjoyed) everything else of yours that's not related to this AU, but I've resisted reading it until now. [Is it too much to say I 'enjoyed' "Reaction"? That one was a bit harder to read, for obvious reasons, but still very well-written and I was glad to see it end on an optimistic note.]

And I LOVE ROH - this is a fascinating AU, & you've woven such a compelling story full of "in-character" characters (which is not to say I don't enjoy OOC behaviour now & again) and exciting plot lines. I'm kind of kicking myself for not reading it sooner, except that I think maybe I'm enjoying it even a little more since I didn't expect to like it much at all.

Just wanted to say what a great story this is & I can't wait for the next installment. :-)
Thanks for writing!!

omg! awesome chapter! i was dying to read more! and i`m glad that you updated!! anyway
want more now!! i hope we have more soon! <3 awesome work!! ^^

This story is sooooo very, very good and the wait for each chapter is agonizing but worth it. I can't wait to read in one massive hit when it's done. You're a legend!!!

Oh, man, I've missed this story SO MUCH.

I know, I know - my life's been so crazy lately, it's hard to find the time to write.

I know - I'm not dead, hooray! And you don't need to worry about the alethiometer - I just thought I'd touch on the way it seemed to have a bit of agency in the books.
