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 was an amazing story. Realistic, emotional, and in character. I couldn't help but devour every single word. It filled all my kinks but at the same time I was itching to see Sherlock go all BAMF on Moriarty. I guess overprotective!Sherlock was still good enough and you extended this narrative for twelve long tension-packed chapters. Well, obviously I will be mem'ing this wonderful read. I will quickly mem' The Republic of Heaven as well, which was an intriguing and original AU. Keep at it!

For such a painful subject, this fic was absolutely brilliant. thank you for this

This is the first time I comment a fanfiction. To be honest, so far, I haven't read many fanfictions, and whenever I see one that has 5 chapters and more, I rarely have the motivation to read them all. But when I read your first chapter, I continued reading the next and the next.. without stop until I finished all twelve chapters in a span of a few hours. That's just how amazing, intriguing and beautiful your story was! All the characters were depicted really well. The interactions between Sherlock and John felt so real and were beautifully described. I love how it started really dark with John's rape and the rest of the story is all about how people around him but especially Sherlock and John himself have to cope with it. This needs a great understanding of each character's personality from the series in order to imagine how they would have reacted to this tragic event. As the story progresses, the bond between Sherlock and John became stronger, even more than before this event had happened. On that note, I like how you portray Sherlock under this situation as being more caring towards John. On the other hand, John's portrayal is just as amazing with how he keeps his dignity and how he has to struggle with himself. Finally, I love how it ended with the two being able to "repair" this scar and confessing to each other. You are an amazing writer! Thank you so much for writing this beautiful piece of work!

This is amazing. Your writing is excellent, and you handled a painful topic with the weight it deserves. I love how you wrote most scenes from both points of view; it's really interesting to see the differences in how J/S view the same conversation, experience etc. John and Sherlock are also completely in character throughout. Sherlock would talk about being in love as if he were diagnosing an illness:) Thank you so much for sharing this story, I absolutely loved it!

Ahhhh, pleasure to read. Very nicely done, many fics seem to have very OOC!John moments, which is extremely annoying. However, yours was lovely, and I loved Sherlock's admission of love. Very cute :)

This was a really good read. I stumbled on it through a rec on tumblr, and I've been reading it on and off all week. It was emotionally grueling at times, but the ending was quite hopeful.

heartbreaking and lovely

Just wanted to let you know that people are still reccing and stumbling across this fic and finding it as lovely and heartbreaking as ever! I'd read this years ago and found it again on tumblr... Thanks for the great story!

This was such a beautiful read. I loved the way you left it; I think you were absolutely right about this being the right place to bring the story to a close. (However, were there an epilogue, I would happily read it ;] )

Thanks for this lovely piece!

That was amazing. What a journey! John's emotions and thoughts were so raw and real I'll never watch that scene again without your words burning in my mind. Sherlock is so Sherlock it's electrifying. It was heart-wrenching (I had a physical knot in my stomach all through the first chapters, and I was quite, quite amazed at that!), gut-turning, moving, and simply one of the best bits of fanfic, of any-fic, I've ever come across. Well fucking done to you. Thanks for writing this.

This was both painful and wonderful.
I really loved the way your Sherlock was so bewildered at his emotional reactions to Johns rape. His crying without realizing that he was, was gut wrenching and his matter of fact plans about what he intends to do to Moriarty showed the true depth of his emotions.
I thought it interesting that he was aware that he was in love with John, but seemed unaware that he was reacting like any normal person would in the same situation.
Your portrayal of Sherlock in this story, seemed to be very close to how I would imagine the Sherlock of cannon might react, if he was a little more self aware at this stage of their relationship.
I enjoyed this immensely, even the painful parts and I can't wait to read more of your writing.
It was both extremely well written and moving and I think you handled the emotional after affects of rape with a sensitivity that is sometimes lacking in this particular subject matter.


I wanna translate all your fic. May I have your permission please. I'm falling in love with your fic.

I just finished. And all I could think was: j'adoré.

There are many awesome things about this fic. One of the best is your character voices. Entirely believable to me. Wow!!

I loved reading this. Moriarty raping John is something that doesn't fit into my canon, but throughout this fic, everyone is so very much in character it easily could. I loved Sherlock's unintentional emotional outbreaks and John's just as unintentional terrors. It makes this so very heartbreaking - yet at the same time, you show how strong their friendship (and love) is, and I have not a single doubt that John will move past this and still enjoy life.
Sherlock's admission of his love was just perfect, it's so very much *Sherlock*! ^^
The only thing I'm missing is Sherlock laying his hands on Moriarty and making him suffer for what he did. I'm bloody-minded that way when it comes to my reading. I want to see Moriarty *pay*!
...I guess getting shot in the head isn't pleasant, so maybe I should just stick to canon here, but if you ever decide to write an alternative version of Moriarty's - *this* fic's Moriarty's, that is - demise, please let me know!

Just wanted to say I thought you wrote this all out beautifully! The characters were just so utterly true to me. Brilliant writing!
