Oh, wow. This is AWESOME. Painful and layered and so beautifully done. Love the multi-media approach. Such a labor of love. Beautiful. *standing ovation

Fabulous story, and the use of graphics to tell the story is done very well. :)

Thank you so much. I'm glad it translated. I was worried since so much has to be inferred.

I want to bite something because it was too good and then it stopped.

Whine...

Love it!

Thank you! It actually stopped before that last blog entry originally, but then my beta beat me with a stick until I agreed to offer some sort of resolution to Sherlock's letter.

Double wow: great concept, amazing art, fantastically written. Oh, wait, that was a triple wow, wasn't it? I'm sure there are a few more wows to it, too. Just utterly wow!
colebaltblue
Jul. 4th, 2011 05:43 am (UTC)
Triple thanks! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much and think it is worth at least three wows! Here's an extra couple thank you's on top of the first three!!

Oh, awesome idea! And excellently executed.

(The fact Harry has a Hotmail account made me LOL. /geek)

That was last minute decision made while I was thinking up the text of her email to John. I had to log into my old hotmail account, which something I hadn't done in probably a year, to make the screen grab for the graphic hence the 905 unread inbox messages (all spam, I assure you).

Thank you! Glad you liked it!!

Wow. I can barely describe how wonderful, fabulous (and quite honestly, GENIUS) this is. It's amazing how you convey so much through the many different ways someone can communicate with others.

I also love the fact that it's Mycroft for once who has pushed Sherlock into exile and not Sherlock himself, and that Sherlock actually wants to come home. The yearning is painful at times. In fact, Mycroft seems far colder and through the letters, Sherlock a much softer person. And that polaroid of John <3

Your effort putting this together is simply stunning, and I feel quite honoured to have what I think is the best fic this Holmestice :) Thank you.

Oh wow. High praise indeed. I'm so glad you like it. You're very welcome. ♥

I'm a huge fan of Doyle's Holmes and definitely feel as if he'd push himself into exile, but I get a different vibe off of Sherlock and Mycroft a la BBC.

It was so much fun to create and I'm glad I had the opportunity to. Thanks for your participating in Holmestice and thanks for being such a wonderful recipient. It truly was a joy to make this for you.

(p.s. the polaroid is my favorite, although I'm most proud of the BBC website, but the passport was fun too)

This is lovely! A very apropos and creative format; I like the way that Sherlock can express things in letters that he can't say out loud. Well done!

He never was a very talkative guy, was he? Thank you very much.
