It’s a good story, Ryan. It’s the tale of two young men who couldn’t be more different but they learn to overcome their differences. They team up and essentially become brothers, not unlike you and me. Except that I blew it. Ever since the day you got here you have totally had my back and I just - I promise you, from now on, I will never fail you again. I am so sorry.

You know the season one finale of the OC where Ryan leaves and Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley is playing and Marissa is staring over the balcony and Seth is sailing away and Kirsten is sobbing into Ryan’s old sheets and Sandy comforts her and the sun is setting as the car gets further and further away paralleling how the metaphorical sun is setting on Ryan’s new life and he’s going back to the darkness of his old one and it’s tone is captured PERFECTLY with such a beautiful and sad song? Yeah they don’t make television like that anymore.

But at the end of the day when every price has been paid
If you’re gonna rise and sit beside him on some old seat of gold
And won’t you tell me why you live like you’re afraid to die
You’ll die like you’re afraid to go

10 years ago tonight, The OC aired its series finale. I, for one, still miss my California family.

I can’t believe we are at this point right now. Simply, thank you to this beautiful show and everyone that has continued honoring its legacy. May this gem of a story continue to shine.
