* CompleteMonster: Culverton Smith is shown to be even more of a monster than he was in the {{Canon}}, and is even mentally labeled this by Holmes. Smith goes around infecting people with his deadly tropical diseases just to study the results, then [[ShootTheDog murders his]] [[NiceGuy step-nephew]] out of {{Greed}} for his stepbrother's estate (an action on which ''Moriarty'' actually calls him out). Then he gloats over a dying Sherlock Holmes, and this rewrite of a canonical scene is actually pretty painful to read. All this makes [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness his eventual fate]] ''immensely'' satisfying.

* CompleteMonster: In-universe, Watson and Lestrade regard Moran as this - in RealLife, fans were outraged by the Colonel's cold-bloodedness in the same chapter. (Then the author went and showed that [[EvenEvilHasStandards Moran does have standards]] and even went so far as to give him a CrowningMomentOfAwesome against Professor Moriarty.)
** Another in-universe example: Holmes regards Culverton Smith as this. (And, again, so did the readers.)

* TheWoobie: Pick any page of the FFN reviews, and you'll find loads of sympathy (and sometimes even tears) for Sherlock most of all, Watson secondly, and Mycroft thirdly. Lestrade and Wiggins get honorable mentions for having almost as much angst as Mycroft.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Some fans said this when Holmes disappeared for several chapters and [[DisneyDeath was believed dead]] - however, the reaction was hardly apathetic. During the fact, the reaction was desperate; ''after'' the fact, it was relieved. Apparently, quite a few readers were genuinely scared for Holmes.

* OTP: Lestrade/Annie. To the surprise of the author, Annie Lestrade quickly became a popular character, and one reviewer even referred to Geoffrey and Annie's marriage as an OTP.

* UncannyValley: Inspector Patterson seems to invoke this reaction in some readers. If you go back through [[http://www.fanfiction.net/r/7242298/ some of the earlier reviews]], you can find reviews that say that Patterson is too much like Holmes... which is exactly [[{{Foil}} the effect]] [[WordOfGod the author]] was going for.
