For 11 years, fans have stayed invested in the goings-on at Seattle Grace Hospital. Through raving gunmen and horrifying plane crashes; through LVAD wires and cancer; through almost drowning and 007. It hasn’t been an easy journey, but fans have continued to come back. Why? Because of Meredith and Derek. Because since the moment this show began, their love was its driving force. People believed in them and were determined to see this show through because their journey was important.

It is unclear what exactly the circumstances were surrounding Patrick Dempsey’s exit. It doesn’t matter, though. The fans deserved an open door. The fans deserved the chance to see Meredith and Derek happy, if only for a few moments when the show comes to an end. Making this claim doesn’t feel like whining. I’ve seen comments suggesting that fans need to grow up and get over it, but those comments are unwarranted.
This isn’t immature foot-stomping; it is legitimate anger. The commitment to “MerDer” is precisely why Grey’s has had its sizable audience all these years. Without the fans believing in this pair, there would be no show. Shonda Rhimes has asked the viewers to have faith—and they have. Grey’s has benefited for over a decade from this faith. To tear this relationship apart with such finality is more than just sad; it is a betrayal.

siggy tries recommending a book

yooo so i found this little graphic novel called In Real Life at Barnes and noble and it’s mega adorable if you’re into short reads with a nice story. 

and if you wanna know what’s in the book without me spoiling:

  • main protag is a girl who is chubby/fat and isn’t made fun of her weight, nor is it mentioned or used on her as a joke.
  • she plays games with friends, which is D&D
  • very very nice looking art, super pleasing to the eye
  • the book is mostly based in an online mmorpg setting with real nice visuals and very cute looking avatars the characters have.
  • she learns lessons about the real world and about trust as well.




seriously i highly recommend this to anyone for a nice quick read

I bet even though Michael’s hands are calloused from all that guitar playing that they still touch everything with gentleness and care and he’s just that type of person that loves everything good and hates everything bad and he’d treat you like the best thing and casually caress your cheeks and run his fingers through your hair and whispers that he loves you when ever he gets the chance

His gun was also unregistered.

He called 911 to report noise and not getting assistance, he went outside and confronted the group that included that Rekia.

Servin claimed he feared for life and shot at the group five times.

He tried to ‘plant’ evidence, stating there was a ‘gun’.

The gun was a cellphone.
