you managed it. the impossible. you took a storyline that had been sinking lower and lower into the gutter, and you not only patched up the barest threads of what it had been, but you made it infinitely more poignant and emotional than anyone could have anticipated or even hoped for. you were balanced in your narrative, you allowed the characters to react in the most natural and believable way possible, and you brought about a resolution that was satisfying and beautiful to watch. truly, it was a masterclass in writing and it showcased your understanding of the characters, your love for the show, and more than any of that, your unparalleled talent.
i salute you.
