look up any word, like blumpkin:
An amazing fan fiction that will bring any and all Sherlock fandom members to tears.
Considered to be a right of passage for all members of the fandom and is written by the amazing madlori.

Nearly all Sherlock fandom members know of 'Alone on the Water' and those who do know of it have read it and have had their hearts broken by the truly-fucking-amazing-ness of it.

Mentions of 'Alone on the Water' almost always followed by 'forever crying'
Fan A: Oh my god have you read Alone on the Water?!
Fan B: Yeesss, I cried for ever after reading that. My tear ducts were all fucking dried up because of it.
