Comment on John Watson's 12 Things Happy People Do

  1. I'm very much enjoying this story! I've had enough angst for a while, and the humor is just dark enough and absolutely fitting. Of course people would be alarmed at John's thanks, his optimism is more than a little twisted, and everything with Molly just goes wrong for reasons John can't understand! All the characters seem right (and that I think that despite not slashing Mycroft and Lestrade one whit speaks to your effectiveness as a writer!).

    My favorite bit:
    “I’m being happy,” John informed him, resolutely.
    “Clearly,” agreed Lestrade.

    I can imagine both their faces and their voices vividly!

    1. I think John is reaching the point in his grief where he's trying actively to move past it, and I think that requires him to acknowledge the little moments of humor in his life, you know? So I tried to put them in here. (And I'm glad you like my Mycroft and Lestrade, they kind of slashed themselves together against my own plans for them.)
