|Review:||October Sea Breeze says:|
I managed to not log in before reading... fail. Okay, you know me. You know I will respond to this with a very, very random and hyperactive review! Cause that's how I roll darling! Okay, ahem... let's move on, shall we? We shall!
Woop woop! It's Potterwholock! It's HP, Dr Who and Sherlock. O my God, I love you. I absolutely love you. Can I marry you? We can raise our kids in a very [super]wholock Potter way! Too random?
About the story: I dunno where to staaart! Will we have Rory the Roman? Cause I need mah Rory :3 Rory is love! And all is pink and fluffy!
Did I see what I thought I saw! Weeping Angels??? Creepy weeping angels which I hate by the way cause they're well... scary. And they weep. And... oh, dear dear... POOR SHERLOCK! Or John. Or whoever, but the Doctor will come and they just need to trust him. Though he always says that but rule one is: the Doctor lies... hmm!
Back to the story shall we? Can't say much on the characterization of the HP characters since well, I don't read a lot of Hogwarts-era characters. Okay, I just don't read a lot of HP ff... I'll admit it! On the Sherlock I can say more, cause Sherlock FF is what I readdeh! Duhh... ahem.
I love how you portrayed John and Sher! Poor John! He waited so long for Sher to arrive and Sher finds it weird that he's angry! Has he forgotten he left John heartbroken? Yeah, this is my shipperheart speaking. I see Johnlock everywhere. Johnlock is there and here and all is pink and fluffy! Err...
What else? I think you'll do a pretty good job with it, darling! Cause nothing can fail! Well, everything can fail but the Doctor is there (here?) so all be good. Just don't listen to his plot ideas, dear dear.
No slash? Dear me, Ms Lisa, dear me. [Wow, Moriarty reference... too much Sherlock]. I challenge you to write a Johnlock kiss even though you don't ship it. Or maybe a Mystrade-hint. Just a little one... If you write Sherlock/Molly or Sherlock/Irene I do not like this story anymore! Nah, just kidding dear, you write Potterwholock, I just love you for that.
Just indeed... is it three years John waited? I dunno anymore right now, long time since I've read the books but I do remember someone writing 3 years in a FF on Tumblr, so I shouldn't be complaining. Not that I am... I feel like I'm just rambling here.
So! What you must do: write a Johnlock kiss or Mystrade hints. Finish this in less than a month cause me is very impatient - and I assume you're a TA so no excuses! Let John being saved by the Doctor so Sherlock can get jealous! Involve the HP stuff in some way xD
Author's Response: This is quite possibly one of the longest and coolest and most enthusiastic reviews I've received. This is fantastic. I salute you.
I've had a lot of declarations of love since I announced the writing of this story, so I'm afraid I can't commit to just one person. I'm sorry. It's just too soon.
OF COURSE WE WILL HAVE RORY THE ROMAN. The universe needs Rory the Roman.
WEEPING ANGELS YES YOU DID THAT'S RIGHT. I'M NOT BEING VERY SUBTLE ABOUT THAT BUT THAT'S OKAY. OBVIOUS WEEPING ANGELS ARE OBVIOUS.
My HP characters are pretty much clean slates. That's the joy of minor characters - they're like OCs in that you can pretty much do what you want with them because there's such little canon information out there. I'm treating Terry like an OC that JK Rowling very kindly named and sorted for me.
You have no idea how happy it makes me to hear I'm characterising John and Sherlock well. No idea. They're such difficult characters to get right, especially Sherlock, so...phew. That is a relief.
Even without the shipperheart speaking I think it's fair to say John was heartbroken. Sherlock was pretty much everything to him. World's greatest bromance, right there.
There is no such thing as too much Sherlock.
I'm not a Johnlock shipper, but I do sorta ship Mystrade (I think we've discussed this) so there might be a hint of it later. That means I'll have to change the warnings though. -sigh- Never fear, there will be no Sherlock/Molly or Sherlock/Irene here. I don't ship Sherlock with anyone. It's safe.
It is three years, or so I've been informed by another of my readers :)
Finish in one month? Challenge accepted, as long as the muse cooperates. I am indeed a TA, so that might actually happen. I have the second chapter already finished, but I'm going to be stubborn and wait for my banner to be finished so I can add chapter and banner at the same time.
Thanks for the awesome review :) Chapter 2 should be up by tomorrow, hope to see you back!
