tip: "sherlock (tv)" m/m NOT "sherlock holmes/john watson"
Another excellent piece! You write Jack so well--every nuance of his thoughts, motivations, speech, etc. are just perfect. The premise was so very clever, too; I had read about what had happened to John at Culloden, but to put two and two together and make it Jack who did it--brilliant!
Thank you for the lovely review! I couldn't resist crawling into Jack's scary head again. I have some doubt that this is what DG intended with her hints about John's past (mostly because she seems to imply that Jack was impotent after France), but given the timelines, the concept was very tempting.
