Author's summary: Everyone on earth is born with eyes that see in black, white, and an endless series of greys. When you meet your soulmate, you finally see the world in color. We're all searching for the person who brings color to our lives. John and Sherlock are no exception.

Reccer's comments: This is a soulmate fic, but it's not your standard 'soulmates mean twu wuv' kind of story. In this world, soulmates are not de facto the one true path to happiness. I especially liked that the fic explores what it means to have - and to be - a soulmate, and that we see that it's entirely possible to live a happy, fulfilling life without ever having met one's soulmate... or having met them and subsequently lost them, either to death or simply the vagaries of life. And, on the other hand, that having a soulmate doesn't necessarily guarantee a happy end.

Beyond that, the language is a pure pleasure to read, as in this excerpt of a young John talking to his mother:

The fic is a mixture of cases from the series re-worked and original cases, as throughout John and Sherlock try to figure out what they mean to each other and how having 'gone color' for each other will change them, for better or worse. It's a fascinating world that the author has created, one of those that you wish would go on forever.
