This was perfect! Oh dear. I think you have ruined me for this genre though as I love your version of John so much! Actually this is only like the 5th fic from this show I've read. I've got to find more!

Thanks! I like to write John as bamfy as possible, so I'm glad you like my version of him.

why do i think that john will end up being mummy's favorite

Because John would be everyone's favorite. Goodness knows he's my favorite. :)

Yes, yes, John's the favorite. Love John being all BAMFery with Mummy. So lovely.

Adopted huh? I'm surprises that she didn't file marriage papers.

That was actually the other option in the original prompt: adoption or marriage. But there were already so many marriage fics and I thought the force-adoption bit was hilarious.

I want to be as funny as you someday. In the meantime, I'll take comfort in reading this and your other fics, and absolutely adoring how you write John, all upstanding yet devious and perfectly capable of holding his own against the Holmes Brothers.

Literally. Howled. With. Laughter.

IT HURTS SO GOOD!

This was fantastic! I love how John got even with both Sherlock and Mycroft using his new Mummy.

Thanks

I'm cackling, yes I do believe that is the right word, cackling at this little piece. John really is quite astonishing at times and is probably the sole person in the world capable of manipulating Sherlock and Mycroft. He so wins the favorite child award.

You just got me out a massive dark mood! Oh god. Can't stop laughing. This is brilliant, thanks for the lovely read!

Oh my!

I can totally see this exact scenario, but rather than adopting him into the family, Mycroft filled out and filed a marriage document between Sherlock and John.
Mummy Holmes: "Mycroft assured me that everything was perfectly fine. And I just didn't want my Sherlock to be so alone anymore. I only rushed things a bit." While John stares in mute horror, the only thing runnning through his head being: 'but we're not in a relationship.'

this had me in giggles - molly hoopers blog layout just about did me in. And of course, I always love to see BAMF!John landing on his feet and rolling with the punches. :)

Oh my god... I think I've just reached some new plane of laughing-- beyond rofl, beyond "jesus christ can't breathe".

THIS WAS GLORIOUS. Simply GLORIOUS.

Oh I agree entirely. I think my keyboard copped whatever i was eating at the time.

I don't know what was better - John being PISSED at mycroft, soldiers getting nervous million miles away or John's one-up-mummy-ship

I know I've left a comment on this completely awesome fic somewhere, but I can't figure out where. Anyway, to recap: this is awesome and John is a pure delight.

Oh, this is seventeen types of crackfic, all going down tastily!

I can't believe I forgot to comment the first time I read this, I must have broken something laughing so hard and missed doing it.

Sooooo, I would so very much like this to be on my screen next week instead of THE FALL. But alas I shall have to rely on my poor imagination and your awesome writing to see this utter brilliantness in my brain.

The nervous soldiers in Afghanistan, the silent Sherlock-Mycroft argument, the anger turning into revenge ... oh, this is lovely! And that's the perfect way to end the fic.

Hee! OMG, hee! That was hysterical! I love, *love* John's placating comments that (somehow) make things worse! Talk about revenge! I think Mycroft and Sherlock will regret not stopping this.

And this:

"Of course, Mummy," Mycroft agreed smugly, basking in the glory of Not Being In Trouble.

That is such a sibling thing to do! It's perfect.

Thank you so much for the laughs.
