Summary: Set at the very fictional St Benedict's College, Cambridge. 21-year-old John Watson, recently invalided home from Afghanistan, begins his first year at university. The student he's sharing rooms with takes up entirely too much of his time. The only parties he gets invited to are hosted by a would-be dominatrix. Oh, and he's probably being targeted by a serial killer. At least his life isn't boring.

I must admit it sounds a little crack-ish, but isn't that at all. You see before you a wonderful university AU with romance and suspense and quite fun parts in between. The relationship that develops between Sherlock and John is so wonderfully canon and yet a little more romantic, Irene is hilarious but you feel with her and Molly - I always love a well-written Molly, and this one is just enough of smitten with Sherlock to be believable, but her own person, strong and yet in need of some serious hugging.
Am I gushing?
Anyway, quite funny in parts, but engaging and with a good dose of suspense. And Moriarity!
What else is there to say? The reader reads from different perspectives - John narrates most of the time, but sometimes Sherlock, Molly or Irene (I felt I needed to say that). Oh, and Sherlock is wonderfully in character (see favorite chapter, there is a wonderful Sherlock in there!)

Favorite Chapter: Chapter 5: From the Reminiscences of John H Watson - In which Mycroft shows his love in scary ways, John has occasional bloodlust, Sebastian Wilkes really deserves to be punched in the face, and creepy Irishmen hide in bushes. It's actually a pretty happy chapter, though! (description by author)
