Sherlock Fic - The Republic of Heaven, Part One
colourful, hills
Title: The Republic of Heaven
Rating: Maybe PG-13?  At least at the moment...
Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, and am making no profit from their use, more's the pity.
Warnings: Eventual slash, Sherlock/John.
Summary: Another HDM fic, but I just couldn't resist.  Born to a witch and a human, people know Sherlock will be unusual from the start.  John Watson, on the other hand, seems perfectly ordinary, except for his dæmon...

that's just great, dear))
will be waiting for more)))

Thanks! I'll try to get the next part up soon!

That was amazing! Fantastic integration of both worlds. I love your choices for daemons and I especially love how you've portrayed John. More please!

Thanks! I am, at heart, a complete fangirl for John Watson, and I think it shows :D

love it !
please more soon ^^

Thanks! I'm working on the next part even now!

\o/ When I saw that you'd written again, I cheered! :D And it's HDM fic!! I'm looking forward to reading more; this part was intriguing.

Thanks! I absolutely adore dæmon fic, so I couldn't resist writing my own!

Completely amazing! You've got their characters down brilliantly and their daemons just work so, so well. I love the contrast/compare between their childhoods too. I cannot wait for more.

Thanks! I glad you think their dæmons work - that was one of the things I really thought hard about.

Oh why oh why isn't there a like button?

I am endless excited for the rest of this.

Thanks! I'm working on the next part even now.

This was awesome. You've made it really intricate, loads of little details and world building. I don't know much at all about the HDM world but I don't feel like I need to at all to get this. Eagerly awaiting more!


Thanks! I'm trying to write it in such a way as to ensure people don't need to know a whole lot about the books/movie to understand it.

After I rolled my eyes at the thought of reading yet another HDM crossover, I decided I might as well see what your take on the world was. I'm very glad I did; you're exploring the witches and the bears, which were some of my favorite characters in the series and whom I haven't seen anyone delving into, so I'm extremely happy with this so far. Plus you're a sterling writer, so you have that to recommend you as well. I look forward to the next part!

Thanks! It my beta that actually suggested using the whole world (bears, witches, etc.) as opposed to just the dæmons, and once I had the idea my muse ran with it like crazy!

Thanks! I tried to come up with appropriate dæmons, so I'm glad you think it works!

You actually have no idea how excited I am about this. It looks like it's going to be absolutely amazing.

Ooooh, fun! I'm looking forward to more! :D

Fantastic. The two come together - a least when you are writing them - so well. I adore the idea of dæmons but I'm not crazy about the source material. Thanks for making it accessible.

Thanks! I've always loved dæmon fic, so I couldn't resist writing my own!

I really, really like what you have so far! I cannot tell you how happy I was to realize you mean this to be a chaptered fic. I think you did really well with Sherlock's characterization, especially with how you've used his dæmon with regard to furthering Sherlock's own characterization (which, yes, I realize that's what they're for in the first place :] ) and supposed sociopath status.

Looking forward to the next chapter! Cheers.

Thanks! I'm glad you think I did well with Sherlock's dæmon - I always knew what John's dæmon was going to be, but Sherlock's required a bit of thought.

I love these crossovers. :D I'm also happy to see someone other than me interpreted same sex daemons as an indicator of being gay. My theory is that bisexual characters can have either gender daemon...so Sherlock/John is not impossible. XD

Thanks! They do mention that same sex dæmons are rare, so I figure that same sex dæmons belong to that portion of the population that are predominantly, often exclusively, homosexual. If bisexuals had same sex dæmons they'd probably be a lot more common.
