Recs and Reviews

  • "I always laugh a little that this is one of my comfort pods, since the entire first part is pretty much John angsting about his situation. But the angst is low-key in this fic. John is factual about things, and the resolution of the fic (part 2) is so understatedly humorous, as Sherlock seeks, in his own way, to fix things, that I can't help but smile. crinklysolution's reading style is so perfect for this fic. Her voice brings out the subtle humor and the true affection between the two men, and I always finish this podfic with a smile on my lips."[1]
  • "Your John...oh man!! The whole of how you read his blog entry... I can't even. There was so much resignation, but also his awe of Sherlock! I think those two aspects came through really strongly for me. I also enjoyed John's panic immensely - burn the evidence John, burn it good!
Your pacing was great, as always I am in awe of any piece of work that sounds so cleanly edited that I never find myself thinking "oh, this must be another take," -- a credit to your editing skills :)"[2]
