I have spent the past 24 hours having an existential crisis about Meredith and Derek in ways I am too tired to detail again here (short version: I was struck by a sudden compulsion to watch 10,000 clips I either have not seen or have forgotten, and my current tagline for Tumblr is "how very dare they have spent the better part of 5 years working my last nerve only to develop into a beautiful marriage that will ultimately RUIN ME"), but the thing I cannot contain to Tumblr because linking to ff.net both reveals my minimum age and leads back to here is:
