|Reviews for Alone On the Water|
| Bronabin chapter 1 . 6/17/2012
I can't really think of anything else to say but thank you. This is one of the most beautiful fanfictions I have ever read and it is amazing. Your one- liners broke my heart, and the way you captured what might happen to John if Sherlock were to die in a subtle, unnerving way.
I think that must have been better for people, to realize that he was amazing, and brilliant, and perfect, and that soon, he will be no more.
Also the fact that Sherlock was reluctant to leave not because he didn't know what would be awaiting him, but because he knew that he would have John no matter where he was and that John would never have him, even thought the bond that connected them was equal for both of them.
But other than my so many feelings about them, you did an amazing job at capturing the feeling they both shared for each other, so kudos, a million times over.

Rip apart my feelings why don't you jesus christ
But with that said, this is entirely beautiful and peaceful and all together... comforting in a way. I love that you have John take over his job, as you can almost see that happening in canon, you know? Very well done, dearest!

I first found out about this fanfic through the youtube video
titled Alone On The WaterSherlock bbc by deductism, which is a beautiful tribute to your fanfic. The video almost made me cry, which never happens, so I decided to read your fanfic. By the time I finished it I was a pathetic, blubbering, sobbing mess, which also never happens. I've been reading fanfiction for about 5 years now and yours is honestly the only one that has made me cry. Ever. This fanfic is beautiful, heartbreaking, brilliant, and so many other things that I can't even list all the words. It is my absolute favorite Sherlock fanfic (my second being Performance In A Leading Role) and THE best one I have read, and I've read a lot of them. You capture the personalities of Sherlock and John and the nature of their relationship superbly. You write them so well that I'm practically speechless by the time I'm done reading your work. There's just too many good feelings and thoughts that I can't get it all out. You have made my day with your Sherlock fanfics and have made me love the fandom even more so than before (if that's even possible). I almost never leave reviews, but this one was just too marvelous to not write a review. I have so much more I want to say about this fanfic but I'm running out of room to type so I'll leave off with this. Please, please, PLEASE (can't say it enough times) write more Sherlock fanfiction because yours is the best I have read and I'm desperately wanting more and keep doing what you do because it is fantastic and brilliant!

Omg... I starded crying in the 1/4 of the story.
That's not fair... :( I really loved that story... SO sad so touching :(
I am a sherlockian, PROUDLY to be sherlockian, and it's really amazing
how a little tv series can change me like sherlock did, its just amazing.

That is so incredibly sad.. The line "I do get to spend the rest of my life with you" killed me. I felt as 'undone' as John D: I was wondering how in the world a single one-shot could earn so many reviews, but I understand now after reading it. I am a horrible person who never reviews after all, and yet here I am. Thank you so much for this fanfic!

OMFG. THANK YOU for making me look like an idiot by bawling my eyes out in front of my computer with my family staring at me like I'm crazy. HOW COULD YOU WRITE THIS. HOW COULD YOU WRITE THIS WITH SUCH BRILLIANT WORDS?
I found this story off of a music video on Youtube too set to the song "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri and gfidsjd.. I'm just.. I can barely see what I'm typing because I'm sobbing so grossly lmao.
| Lucy chapter 1 . 6/16/2012
That was beautiful, and so realistic. I can imagine Sherlock (Cumberbatch) and Watson (Freeman) acting out all the words in scenes in my head. You are a wonderfully talented writer, and you really know the characters. Great work. A standing ovation!

My daughter recommended this story to me because of my love for Sherlock and John. Wonderfully touching and intimate with a great sense of urgency. You've done well.

Hdhdhd This fic gave me so so so many feels , I APPLAUDE YOU. I read this after watching Reichenbach for the billionth time so I was crying by the middle...
| AGreatAndTerribleBeing chapter 1 . 6/15/2012
oh god...I promised myself I wouldn't read this, because I knew what was going to happen (this is probably the fic that I hear the most about when I get online) and I was like, I CANNOT DEAL WITH THAT! So, of course, I read it. (I don't know why I do things like that...) But anyways, I'm glad I did, because even though this was just about the saddest thing I've ever seen, it was absolutely beautiful. That is all there is to say.

I have never cried so hard in my life, let alone over a fanfiction.
I didn't cry this hard at my Grandpop's funeral. My God. I'm shaking. I love it, but I hate it. All the emotions.
| oopsabird chapter 1 . 6/15/2012
Oh, I knew I shouldn't have read this during a science lecture. Now I'm trying so hard not to cry in the middle of my class. Oh god.
This is one of the most, if not the most, powerful, moving, tear-worthy one-shots in fanfiction. You are an amazing writer, and now I know why this is one of the most popular Sherlock fanfics of all time. Just beautiful. Great job, never stop writing.

shit it made me cry at least 3 times... Thank you! I have never cried over any writings... :)
| SomeoneSarah chapter 1 . 6/14/2012
Oh my God. You might as well have just killed me too. I have never in my life cried at a fanfic, but here I am. Curled up on the couch. Sobbing.
My friends told me to read this, that it was the saddest Sherlick fiction out there. Understatement of the millennium. It was heartwrenchingly beautiful; I never knew so much sorrow could be weaved into such a short story.
| Faerie of Tara chapter 1 . 6/14/2012
I am in shock. I am sitting in the middle of my room, tears STREAMING down my face, barely able to see through all of them.
That was beautiful. Heartbreakingly beautiful. I cry at fanfictions sometimes... But this one... There are no words.
