What did you just do to me! I don't even... I am so angry and at the same time I can no longer see him going in any other way. My eyes are dry now, I don't think I can cry anymore. Beautifully written, but you broke my heart.

Oh, god. I watched the end of the Reichenbach Fall and I cried but I hadn't even read halfway through you story and I was sobbing harder than the five times I watched the actual episode put together. Absolutely heart-breaking and beautiful. This is now my favorite Sherlock fanfic.
Excellent job breaking everyone's heart (in the shockingly good way)

I would leave a better review but I can barely see, or breathe for that matter. I blame you completely. Thanks so much for writing this, it really was beautiful, and I think the closest thing to the devastation and deperate hope grief brings with it. Still crying. Still blaming you. Curses.

I was recommended to read this by a friend who loves Sherlock fanfiction as much as I do. She warned me I would need tissues... I didn't think I would need any.. oh how I was proved wrong. After I finished reading I genuinely felt as if somebody I knew had died and couldn't stop crying.
You have written wonderfully and I love how both John and Sherlock are very true to their characters.
Seriously, I cried and cried. Going to get my sister to read it with me tomorrow. Why am I going to put myself through such agony again?

Why did you write this! I just died on the inside!
| LPLB chapter 1 . 5/6/2012
I cried. Then I smiled at the end. It was a sad smile, but still...heartbreakingly lovely.

Oh, god, I bawled my fucking eyes out. You are a brilliant writer.

Wow. Just wow. This is brilliant.
"I've become an avatar for his humanity. I must express all the emotion that he suppresses..." Beautiful, beautiful way to portray the John/Sherlock relationship. Avatar for his humanity, really love that. :)
""I thought there was all the time in the world."" Don't we all? :(
"He's like a celestial body with his own gravity well, trapping me in orbit." Wonderful wording. Great way to describe how John felt about Sherlock.
"Hanging on by his fingertips." The imagery with Sherlock holding on to the edge of John's jumper was so gut-wrenchingly beautiful.
And let me just tell you: Books, movies, fanfics rarely make me cry. Actually, I'm not even sure of the last time one of those three made me cry. But this one? I lost it after Sherlock's "I'm afraid, John."
The end was heartbreakingly perfect. Really gorgeous writing. Amazing work. :)

God, ouch. And wow.
That was amazing.

Oh my God.
I didn't went on since nearly a year. I saw Sherlock for the first time a couple of month ago (I'm French - sorry for my English by the way). I'm addicted to this fandom since, and I started to bump into "Alone On the Water" fanarts and favids, wondering what it could be and, once I found out, when I was going to read it.
And here I am. Just had a big fight with by brother, doesn't matter. Listening to my "post-RF depression tracklist", with all the saddest songs in the world. And then, this.
As all the others, there's so much "rain" on my face I can't read what I'm wrighting. But I hope you can: I loved it, it's beautiful, stunning, amazingly well written, and the plot is just... It's killing me. Love how you peared into the character's soul, I can see every movement they make as if it all was true. I'm a true Johnlock shipper, but this is the first time a kiss between them seams so REAL, so perfectly timed, so... I love the way Sherlock holds John's jumper. I love everything.
I'm not going to bother you any longer, maybe I'll come back to be hurt again by this incredible one-shot. Perfect name, it kills me.

This was the first fic I've ever read that's actually made me cry.
I was bawling my eyes out.
You win at life.
