Semper Fidelis, Epilogue
sherlock john walking

Title: Semper Fidelis
Rating: Probably an R
Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, and am making no profit from their use, more's the pity.
Warnings: Angst, partner betrayal, torture and related PTSD.
Summary: Written for a kinkmeme prompt: Moriarty frames John and "Anthea" of betrayals which cause both of the Holmes brothers to cut them off. Cue BAMF!John and BAMF!"Anthea" doing their best to clear their names. Both het and slash; Mycroft/Anthea and John/Sherlock.

EpilogueCollapse )

I just read through the entire story in one evening. Absolutely loved it. Great job!

I've enjoyed this story very much! Thank you so much for writing it!

Dear Author, thank you for such an amazing work!

This was one of the stories I've been reading since the beginning and I've always hoped it would be finished some day.
Thank you for this wonderful ending! <3

Great story, I like the work so much.
And I am also glad to see it finished, so I could ask for your permission to translate the story into Mandarin so more people could see John sparkles.
Of course I would give you the link to see my translation.
Please let me know if you like the thought, thanks a lot.

I would be honoured - thank you!

Marvelous! I really enjoyed the way you wrote the John / Jane friendship. (And the Sherlock / Mycroft contrition as well!). Thanks so much for this story.

Thanks. I love writing the John-Jane friendship.

Lovely piece of work. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Hello, again. I am the anonymous asking for permission up there. I was going to post the translation in a forum called 221D, however, after reading the policy of the forum thoroughly, I found this work may not be suitable there. The forum focuses mainly on Sherlock/John and Mycroft/Lestrade, stories featured other slashes are kind of banned there. Please excuse me for not knowing that before I ask you. Once again, I really adore John in this story, thanks for the great job!

Oh wow. I was so pleased to open your website and find an update. And then to see you had finished this wonderful story. I found the whole thing utterly captivating and something I will re-read often.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful gift with words and fantastic imagination with us.
Can't wait to read whatever you choose to share in the future.

Thank you for finishing this. This is one of my all time favourite Sherlock stories. Cheers!

Oh my gosh this was an amazing read! They are all so in characters and the story was wonderful. Anthea is one of my favourite small characters (granted, they pretty much all are, but she's at the same status as Mrs. Hudson. And that's with only... what? three minutes on air?) And you did her proud. Really loved how you handled her name, too, and the Rosy thing.

God help me if I end up in a fucked-up relationship: I was rooting for our boys all the way ("But he gave you 24hrs! That's huge, considering what he thought!" "He gave you a gun and cash to escape for goodness sake!"). Really happy with the end.

And lovely portrayal of Mummy, too. I like her.

Thanks! I liked Anthea too - the mystery of her is very appealing, so I'm glad you liked my take on her.

Thank you for finishing this--it was wonderful!! I'm so glad to know that John and Jane did go back to Sherlock and Mycroft. I wasn't sure if it was possible but you made it so. :-)

Thank you again for writing this amazing story. It was just fabulous. :-)


Ok, so now having just finished enjoying this story, I can say that you are now responsible for having written two of my all time favorite fics in this fandom - the other being "Reaction" which I have read over and over.

I never dreamed I could possibly love a story as much as I do when the plot centers around John and all people, Anthea, and that Anthea and Mycroft are in a het relationship.
It just goes to prove that a brilliant writer can write ANYTHING and totally make it rock!
You took the reader along for a hair-raising, emotional, action-packed ride that hit all my kink buttons! I loved that you showed those two taking the long, hard road back to recovery.
I know it's highly unlikely, but I really feel that this story should have a sequel that continues to build on the recovery aspects and just how tough it is to heal from that kind of physical and emotional hurt.

I would also say that I was very sad to see Moriarty dead because I think it prematurely shut-down even a possibility of another story, but as a continuation. That being said, the real point of this comment is to say "THANK YOU" for writing such a brilliant story and for having penned not one, but two of the best stories in the entire fandom!

And by "best ever", I mean best Anthea-is-protagonist Sherlock fanfiction I have ever read. I loved it. 10/10. This is amazing, I love it. Just...wow.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ I cant believe I missed all these updates, but I had to stop refreshing your livejournal like a lovesick teenager facebook stalking their ex and get on with my life. <3<3<3 And now, I need to go and reread.
