OMG! This was great! I love it! You are a really good writer. You are also really good at getting people. I'm am a huge fan of Alex and I always look at how people write him. I was in awe, you got him down really well. I love how you didn't bring him in until later. Even though Mer was mad that they hadn't told her until then, it would have killed her, even though he come out fine, if they had told her at the beginning. Also, you making Alex critical was great! I hate how the writers made him at the beginning of season 7. Your storyline, him in a coma and such, was way more realistic than what the actual show put! Though I could see him keeping the bullet, but not inside himself! that was so stupid! He is a doctor for heaven's sake! I mean, wasn't he on the case where that guy left that bullet in his shoulder for years and it got infected?
I loved the dynamics between everyone. You did really good capturing the relationships and emotions.
I love how you brought in Derek's family, another realistic part. I wasn't sure about Amelia, but I lived it after reading more. I hate what the show did to them and I also hate how the show skins over things...like making the next seasons first episodes months later instead of continuing from where it left off, like what they are apparently doing with season ten's first episodes. They should have shown the recovery and all, would have put a lot of insight...but we don't get this amazing plothole so I guess I'm a little grateful the show doesn't always give us what we expect...

Love this. Still. It's been like a year since I've read it and I spent twenty minutes looking for it because I never favorited it. Love.

This was such a great story! I really enjoyed it. It was well-written, interesting, evocative, and I wanted it to go on, but you ended it perfectly.

Thank you so much, you don't even know how much I needed this story. Seriously, thank you. It was amazing. I loved every single scene, I couldn't stop reading it yesterday even if it was 2 am!

Oh, what a wonderful ending chapter! I guess you don't owe us the vacation since you included it, but, really, a longer piece about it could be fun :) Just saying!
I loved the structure of the part, with all the flashbacks and flipping between the then and the now, and then the skipping forward. It gave such a great, summary view of everything. Meredith and Derek are parents! And they're married! The whole chapter had me sighing and melting all over, but honestly, I have to say the best part wasn't MerDer. It was the bit with Alex, where he gave her the onesie. You seriously know how to tug on people's heart strings.
Thank you so much for writing and sharing this. It was a wonderful story :)

I wish I had intelligent stuff to say after reading this chapter. I really only have a few comments though.
1. Best. Lines. Ever.
"The post-it says no more love struck interns."
"It does not."
"It does," she insisted. "It's just one of those unwritten vows that doesn't fit because post-its are small."
2. They're getting married! For real! *melts*

Good chapter. Derek's still slogging through, but he's hanging in there. I'm glad Meredith had a chance to talk to Carolyn - I liked that scene a lot. I like that Meredith is keyed into how important the ring is, now, too.
Only 2 more chapters? You're going to write a sequel, right? You set up lots of stuff for the future in this one. I think you owe us a MerDer vacation, at the very least :)

Loved this chapter. LOVED Bailey, and I loved the scene with Derek and his sisters. I'm glad Meredith and Derek are really getting onto the lets-have-kids bandwagon. I loved the "Chatty babies with great hair" description. That made me chuckle :)
I was a little off put by the Chief at first. I couldn't figure out why he was being so standoffish, and then when Meredith chased him down in the hall about the drinking I got it.
If I remember right (and maybe I don't), Meredith seemed pretty reluctant to admit that the Chief drinking was an actual problem, and she seemed to think Derek got the Chief put on probation for personal gain, not to save the hospital or the Chief's job or career, so I thought that Meredith rang a bit false in that conversation.
I was surprised by the Chief's guilt, though, honestly I hadn't really thought about it (he's not my favorite character). I do like that what you did with that, though. And, honestly, it made him almost likable for a few minutes to me, so good on you :)
