| Chaotic Memory chapter 21 . 2/8/2012
I don't think I could type my love for this fanfic articulately, so I'm just going to say I was not expecting how great this was. I have to say that I had to repress my squeals of joy at chapter nineteen. I was smiling and dancing but it was late at night and I didn't want to explain why I was acting like I had ten cups of coffee.

I absolutely LOVE this story. I was a little wary when I read the summary, but I'm such a fan of your Sherlock one-shot Alone on the Water that I gave it a chance. Even in the AU setting, you captured John and Sherlock so well. The varied formating, as well as the different snippets of different point-of-views, enlarged the world and made it seem so much more plausible. That's something that I find some AU's fail to do, so it's great to see it.
Seriously, this story is so good that I keep coming back to reread sections of it. Please write more. Actor!John and Actor!Sherlock are amazing. I would love to see some hurt/comfort, especially on Sherlock's end. You did it so well in Alone on the Water, and I'd love to see more of it.
Thanks so much for writing!
| Cipher Nine chapter 21 . 2/8/2012
I don't think that I could put my thoughts on this fic into coherent words. It will simply have to suffice to say that it was absolutely brilliant, I was enthralled (couldn't put my iPod down!), and I can't wait to read further installments.

I'm pretty sure that it struck me in THIS chapter that I'm extremely upset that I will never get to actually see this movie.
Talk about setting up your scenes and discussing camera angles so well. I can see the movie in my mind when they show "clips" of it.
Sooo...we need to get someone on making it. Ehh? Please?

I love the reference to Andrew Bird and his style of music, and I adore your story. I cannot wait to get to the final chapters!

For the past four days I've slept at 6am in the morning because I can't stop myself from reading this amazing story on my phone, until I possibly cannot stay awake any longer and drop the phone on my face X'D
The universe you have created in this fic is so well researched and most importantly, completely believeable. I could practically hear Sherlock and John's voice in my head saying the lines as I read them. You captured their personality and little quirks perfectly. And I especially loved the detailed history you gave to each character, not to mention tying it in with real life celebrities/movies/tv shows etc. It was great fun guessing who you were referring to sometimes.
Thank you for taking the effort in writing this beautiful story. You have some serious talent and I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Wow, this story is incredible! It's just so well thought out and written, the characters are all fleshed out and the plot was gripping and detailed with all the terminology and real context. Seriously, you need to make this into a film, I would pay royally to see this on the big screen!
| tessa626 chapter 21 . 2/6/2012
Wow, I just... wow. This story is incredible. I don't often go for AU fics, but you just made this one work so well! It's so well written, I can really see this being an actual published book. You'd probably have to change the names a bit, but other than that I think you're good. I mean, everything in this story feels so real, it's incredible. To A Stranger seems like it could be a real movie. If you don't try to get this published, I'd be interested to see how the script for To A Stranger would do out in the market. I know I'm just a fanfic reader, and you have no idea if I'm some nut who sits at home all day at her computer, but I think you have real talent. You should try getting at least something connected to this story published. I'd love to see this book on the shelves.
This was an absolute pleasure to read. Thank you so much for a wonderful story!

Completely flabbergasted you could actually pull this off :D when most people make a parallel universe, the characters go completely OOC, in this one it was still Sherlock and Watson. Just amazing
| Joe chapter 4 . 2/6/2012
I get as much enjoyment reading your after chapter notes as the chapters themselves. It's fantastic to see someone putting background detail/work into a fanfic story and to do it in a way that sounds believable and makes sense to the reader.
| smoke-at-dawn chapter 21 . 2/6/2012
This is brilliant! So well written and engaging, it's better to read this /after/ you've read Alone On The Water, acts as therapy. Thank you!
| Guest chapter 21 . 2/6/2012
Excuse my language, but bloody hell! That was an amazingly thought-out, well-written story about my two favourite characters! I just spend an entire morning reading it when I should be doing work. Thanks for the story and for gods sake don't stop writing!
| Fanceey unicorn biscuit 22 chapter 1 . 2/5/2012
Iv just copied this onto my notebook (on iPhone) and whilst doing so i have read little bits of it & all I can say atm is your writing is gorgeous! Can't wait to actually sit down & read this, I just adore the way you put your own kick of personality into this fic. It's very believable aswell, if sherlock & John were to be actors this is how they'ed do it (& noneof us would mind how they 'do it Mrated' either!) ... But yeh back to point, this fic looks awesome & just thought I'd review before I read it fully cause its propper cheeky to read & not leave a comment/complement/critic.. I will review again after iv read it! Xxxxx3 [p.s. sorry for any
Spell mistakes imma very tired girl]

I really adore this story!
Can I share a bit of advice with you though?
When you wrote this, your dialect is changing back and forth, Clara said "lads" Molly said "Mates" and their still suppose to be British right...? Both of those dialects are from other places entirely.
It's not like it's a big thing or anything, it just caught my attention, other then that, I adore this story. I love that you explain some of the acting terms and what nor. I'd never have figured it out.
I look forward to reading more from you-
