Honestly, bless. The Mark/Callie friendship really regressed into the user relationship they had in S4 and part of S5. It was pretty good in latter S5 and in S6, but once Callie begged for sex and tried to use Mark as a human dildo even while she knows that he deserves more than to be used for sex, it went downhill.
He should have said no and I like to think that he knows it too, at least that's the feeling I got from the way that Mark's character grew up after S7 and stopped sleeping around. Hell, he should know it since he lost Lexie over the consequences of that night and I think from the fact that the character grew up in regards to casual sex, he did.
I hated S7 and I grew to hate Callie due to the Callie-centrism of the show at the time and how my favorites were used to give Calzona drama. I hated it as an M/D fan, who wanted them to have a baby, and as a general show fan too.
The one thing I liked that S8 did was draw the lines between Callie/Arizona and Mark while strengthening the bonds between Mark/Derek. S8 really showed that Derek really got Mark and how Mark had changed, that he'd gotten over his resentments of Mark, and that he knew who Mark wanted and what Julia's place in Mark's life really was. LOL and there's Callie acting like Mark got over Lexie and gushing about Julia without thinking about what Mark wanted. It's hilarious because you see who the real best friend is in S8.
S8, while it drew the boundaries between C/A and Mark, was also a bit depressing because of the the amount of times that Mark got referred to as a babysitter to his own kid. It did feel like Sofia was really C/A's kid with Mark getting her a part of the time. I mean, tbh, I've always resented that the kid even existed because of both M/D and M/L so I didn't mind too much.
I'd like to think that those boundaries would only be strengthened if Lexie/Mark had lived and, lbr, gotten back together, gotten married, and had kids, like Shonda said she eventually had planned for them. Maybe Shonda was lying like she lied many times before but she had no reason to say that so I tend to believe her on what she eventually had planned on M/L - the life that Mark promised Lexie in the S8 finale.
Anyways, this rambling review is just to say that just like Callie told Mark to give her and her wifey space, Mark doing similarly to her gave me a rush.

I know just what you mean. I was watching YouTube clips today what we got compared to other ships was pitiful but still we all hung on through 3 seasons of them being apart to get that ending. Shonda played us so well. I don't watch the show anymore so glad to be done with Greys. I really enjoyed the way you re worked certain speeches. Really enjoyed this story so thank you.
It amazes me all the crap the ML fans went through but we all stayed positive it would end well! Yeah not so much.

I read your story and I loved the idea - I'm sad you were put off by how SR ended Slexie and to be honest I can't blame you and it's a shame you're not watching the show anymore, but I have to tell you that you really did a great job and I am IN LOVE with Emma and Kayleigh. I can visualize the chapter that were to come, and I love the effort you put into the story. I hope to see more of your writing.
