Comments

This is one of those scenes that you don’t notice is missing from canon and the fandom until you’ve got it in front of you. Lovely, endearing, and entirely true to character, this fic lets you meet Sherlock and John as you can’t without it and lets you watch them meet each other. If you’re looking for a one shot that digs deep into a friendship in one thrust, this is the fic for you.

Characterization

Spot On – This fic goes deep without giving you access to their thoughts at all; you don’t need it, when you have access to one of the most revealing conversations these two men could have.

Pacing

Quick

Tone

Intriguing, Revealing
