Title: Not Yet Dead by Castiron

Summary: Sherlock Holmes has long been fascinated with (and haunted by) the tragic story of his namesake cousin. When his nightmares about it grow unbearable and he starts seeing hypnotherapist Jim Moriarty, however, Sherlock begins to wonder whether he himself is his cousin’s reincarnation. Have Sherlock and the modern John Watson known each other before this life? Can Sherlock solve a nineteenth-century murder and prove the historic Dr. Watson innocent, and also solve the current string of oddly-posed unidentified corpses?

Pairing: none (one-sided, past-life Johnlock)

Rating: Teen and Up Audiences

Warnings: Major Character Death

Word Count: 105,297

Review/opinion: From the submitter, thefandomwholived: In my opinion, this is one of the most brilliant case!fics in this fandom. I found all the cases well-thought and the story both original and captivating: I could have never anticipated all the plot twists I would encounter, even though the clues are there. Moreover, I love Castiron’s style, easy to read, yet never banal or flat.

Residentbunburyist: This was definitely an interesting concept, and I liked the characterizations for the most part. I was especially pleased with Sally— I always enjoy stories that flesh Sally into a fully realized and interesting character while still allowing her to keep her dislike of Sherlock, because hey, he’s not that likeable to a lot of people. The plot twist at the end was one that I feel like I should have caught on to so much faster than I did, because the submitter was right in saying the clues were very clearly there, but the author had done a good job of not even allowing my mind to wander in that direction until shortly before the reveal, so that was actually pretty fun. My main complaint about this story was that I felt it dragged on for far too long. Much of the middle section felt repetitive to me, and I think could have been sliced down substantially. And as obsessed as Sherlock was getting with the cold case of the former Sherlock Holmes, I was a bit unconvinced that he’d leave a serial killer who had racked up— oh, I lost count— over a dozen kills in a matter of months that no-one, Sherlock included, could figure out in the slightest, without taking a substantial interest. But other than that, I enjoyed this.

hi [name of person], 

this formatting is making me uncomfortable but I have to tell you something / ask you something that is vital to my career as a student. 

I re-read and edited that sentence for an hour, but you’ll probably just glance over it for half a second.

thanks!
