I've read this twice tonight, for the first time. I've cried twice, gone hysterical once. And this, I believe, is the downfall of a reader. One of the moments in which they are more bitter, than sweet.
I have no idea what compelled you to write this, and in fact, I don't really favor the pairing, but this has got to be one of the greatest fanfictions ever. But it would be terrible to be known great for your ability to bring people to their knees, screaming, 'WHY?'
So I regard this as one which touches the human nature of things, down to their lowest point. At the point of loss. And though I've yet to experience the real thing, I've often stayed up late at night wondering what would happen if I did. Could I actually have enough will to pick up the pieces and move on? Those nights usuay end with me falling asleep crying. Having read this, it is that feeling put into a perspective that would equal the reality of it.
I have no idea if I made sense in this review, I'm still in the process of controlling my sobs. But I had to write this down before I forget. I want you to know that what you have written is beautiful, and hazardous to anyone's, both to those who've felt loss and those who haven't, emotional state. I wanted to express that in a positive way, but I think that's the best I can do.
I would never ask you to do anything, change, make anything different about this, because this is Great in and of itself. Very well done.

I'm not crying, it's just hayfever! ;( OMG, this is so sad! At least Watson became a consulting detective. This is brilliant, just let me c... suffer hayfever to myself. ;(

This was beautiful.
I may or may not have cried.

I'm crying like a baby. I swear to God, this is one of the best stories I've ever read. There were times when I simply had to stop reading because my heart was aching so much.
I personally felt quite identified with John. One year (and three days) ago, the role he played in this story was played by me in real life, so I guess that's the reason why I'm such a mess right now and why I KNOW that you described EVERYTHING so damn well.
I loved this. I utterly loved this.

Aaaaaaand i'm dead.
My first and probably last (at least until the show ends) Sherlock fanfic.
It's just... Too much.
Great story though and excellent writing, i'm sobbing.

Whoa. Okay. First of all, I'm impressed. I don't actually watch the show, I know some of what it's about, but I've never really watched it. So it shows what a good writer you are for me to actually enjoy and understand this story. And I really did enjoy it. It actually made me almost sob. Which is rather hard to do when I'm not even attached to the characters.:)
The only reason I even read this is because it had over 3000 reviews. I mean really, how many oneshots get to even 1000? That's what caught my attention. It has to be spectalular right? And it was. I can't even say what was so different and special about it. It was just really good and heartbreaking. And even though it was slash (which I don't like) it could be taken as a very close bromance. I honestly loved this story and give you kudos.

I'm sitting in bed and I feel like I wanna cry my eyes out. I love the story but I hate it when one of the main characters dies. Why must you maker feel this pain?! Sorry. Mild freak out. I feel bad for John. Thanks for writing a beautiful story that actually has meaning and not just an NC-17 thing. I don't like those. Again, thanks.
| Sigh Lence 5/16/13 . chapter 1
I would just like to say thank you. Thank you with all of my heart for writing this. This story is one of the most beautifully crafted pieces of art I've ever read. I was honestly sobbing throughout the last 3/4 and still am teary eyed as I write this. Wonderful job, absolutely incredible. I commend you for your flawless story.

This is my second time reading this. The first time was last year. I cried that time and now I'm sitting here at four in the morning and I'm silently sobbing into my pillow once more; tears landed on my hand and I let them soak in because I didn't care. This is emotional, heartbreaking, beautiful. Truly.

I read this a long time ago, when I didn't know Sherlock at all. It's still sad; it's still great.
Great job, it was a wonderful reading :) You did well with the characters (something difficult with John and Sherlock) and the end was just marvelous.

That was simply amazing. I am crying. This is superb and so well written. Be proud.
