Sherlock is deeply in love with John, not that anyone or even himself would think he is capable of that emotion. Then enter Mary Morston…
Length: 7:45:40 (nearly 8 hours yeaaaaah)
Audio: cellardoor is a fantastic reader, such a velvety Sherlock voice. She reads this very wistfully, which really really fits with the narrative style. This was my first super long epic podfic, and it got me hooked.
Story: One of the great Sherlock fanfictions out there, and for good reason. This is such a believable characterisation of cannon Sherlock, he has all these thoughts and emotions going on inside his head but doesn’t show it leading to everyone misunderstanding what he’s capable of.
After I like that Sherlock doesn’t become..well OTT with the heartbreak Mary brings…he’s still logical and analytical, trying to figure out himself and feelings. The subtlety just makes it all the more heart wrenching for ME. Less is more for Sherlock Holmes.
The narrative style, 1st person present, is used for great effect, what a perfect device of getting into Sherlock’s head. And it allows for a wonderful poetry in the writing. Loved it.
Rating: A+++++++, one of my favourite super long epic stories
