Really touching two-shots.
Maybe you should continue it someday, maybe not...Great story anyway!

I don't have time to ubamble, but let's face it (no one can top Kimmy's comment anyway), she's the bomb and so are you!
I love broken Derek (in a way that he makes for a really great character ... and true to his character, your Derek tried to rise above, give to Meredith first before to himself). I feel sad that he wasn't wise enough to open the letter all those years ago and that he led a somewhat misguided life without Meredith for all those years.
BUT, I'm not sad that they didn't end up where they are now. Because where they are right now is a starting point, one that has tremendous potential and I love that it will be one that lives in the reader's imagination of what it will be.
I like stories that end with "what if" ... PERFECT ENDING!
I love how you redeemed Derek, it was crafty, very clever and a very gifted story-teller.
I loved that they still loved one another (in some fashion) for all those years, I love that they longed for one another. I love that you gave Meredith a rich, happy life with another man, although I do believe LOVE CONQUERS ALL ... which is kind of the point isn't it?
Sometimes when I read these oneshots you write it makes me want to - well ... let me say I always get lost in your story, you very simply draw the reader in and in a very short amount of time and space - you create everything for the reader, the past, the present and the future.
You're quite remarkable and you should be very proud of you work.
Love you to pieces,
(And I know this comment sucks, my head is spinning, perhaps a umbamble would have helped me organize my thoughts ... well, who am I kidding, I think I would have quoted the whole thing.)

There is a reason people keep asking you to continue...it's because you write amazing things like that chapter! You know if you wanted to make this into a longer story - I wouldn't mind :)

I loved this and you were right - it's fucking sad - but I loved it, the rain I think is what does it for me. Rain can be so many different things - it can make you feel like anything is possible, like the old is washed away and then you're new again, or it can make you feel sad and lonely and miserable - I kinda see both here.
I for one think Campbell seemed like a nice guy, he'd have to be for Meredith to fall in love with him ('cause even if you made Derek a prick for the way he left her, I am sure he was his charming self for those 4 years they had together) ...
THANK YOU for the chance to read Derek's POV ... I can't wait.
You just keep getting better and better kid, seriously, do I say that every time - that this is the best you've done - I think I do (although UNINVITED remains pretty close to my heart for a dead ringer).
Love you for the imagery, the story, the passion and the twists of fate ... is it the weekend yet? LMAO.
Love you to pieces (I mean it).
