Simply wonderful. Such a well-written, sweet, touching story. And so in character.

Thank you for this amazing christmas story, it was perfect for them! I loved how they were just happy beeing together and that they went to the house (with walls and a roof! Surprise, LOL). Now Im feeling all happy and warm inside :)
(When I watch the show these days, I always end up beeing depressed and sad)

I reread your story this evening - I loved it the first time I read it, but I was particularly struck by one line you've written, when Meredith is talking to Teddy and Miranda:
"Had Derek not survived she would have been devastated, but she wouldn't have given up a moment she had spent with him to rid herself of the pain."
I felt I had to comment on it - it's something I've had said to me many times in the past year, and it's an incredibly, incredibly hard feeling to come to terms with when you're actually in the sort of situation Meredith is grateful she isn't in. It really struck a chord with me, and I just wanted to let you know that I thought that this part, along with the entirety of the story, was beautifully written.

I loved that Mer was able to articulate what she was thinking and why she was there to Bailey. That was a perfect explanation. I'm so glad that they spent that time together. I loved Mer's idea for Christmas in the house - very creative and fun. Awesome Christmas oneshot!

You did a wonderful job with this story. I really loved it. You really went into great detail to keep the story very interesting.
It's nice to see that someone can have a happy story about MerDer without all the drama. Maybe you should write for Shonda. We need more MerDer fluff on the real show.
Thanks again and please write more

I loved every single word! TRUELY! You've got who they are meant to be written down in this one shot! This is the potential of them "come to life" in a fic. Did that make any sense? You've got me all babbly, giggly, and lovestruck. LOL

Wow. What a beautiful, perfect MerDer Christmas story! LOVE it!

Totally love this! I really like that both Meredith and Derek are just trying to be together in whatever time they have on Christmas - so realistic for their relationship and their jobs. Love Meredith's speech to Bailey about why she's hanging around in gallery when she could be sleeping. (And Teddy's line about how it seems like they've been married forever was sweet and true!) Just a really nice piece about their first Christmas after almost not having another. Here's hoping there's a tiny stocking on their mantle next year!
