"it's a great day to save lives."
dr. derek christopher shepherd often said this.
he is a fictional neurosurgen. or maybe i should say was. he was a fictional neurosurgen.
but on thursday night - my favorite fictional neurosurgen died.
of a brain bleed. ironic to say the least.
i am still not over it. i will never get over it.
right now shonda rhimes is my least favorite person in the whole history of the world.
i am devastated. yes. devastated. yes. that is dramatic. but guess what. i don't care.
this weekend i have continually found myself getting teary eyed about it.
friday i was on the phone with mama + between my sobs she said "shel we have to remember he isn't real. derek is not real."
and all i could keep saying is "i'm so sad for meredith! what is she going to do!?" "oh my heart hurts i am so so sad for her." "they should have killed christina yang. yang got to leave in peace. why is derek dead!?"
you see people - derek shepherd was magic.
he was a freaking dream boat.
he was just so ... mcdreamy.
i had one amazing neurosurgen. don't get me wrong. but i would have given anything for someone with a face like derek shepherd's to operate on me. hahaha.
i think that was part of my love for him - it wasn't just the fact that he saved lives. it was how he saved them. he saved lives the same way mine was saved.
if i am being honest - most of the time if derek was operating - i was under a blanket telling mama to tell me when it was over.
it's been 10 years since my surgery - but still i am unable to deal. understandably so.
when denny duquette died in izzy stephens arms i wept for a few days.
when george o malley died i was in complete shock. and it took a few days for the tears to come. he had been john doe for so long. i couldn't believe it. 007 himself was dead.
when lexi grey and mark sloan died i vowed to never watch again. - obviously that didn't work out too well - my vow i mean.
when henry burton died i decided the universe was out to get me. because i was sure that shonda rhimes knew i had a crush on him. and every crush from grey's i ever had so far was dead.
somehow i moved on from all the devastation.
but this. this just isn't okay. it never will be.
derek shepherd should not be dead.
it should have been a great day to save lives.
a great day to save his life.
they should have saved him.
I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER DEREK.
