Thanks so much, lin212. It seems like I've read a lot of good ML fanfiction, and it does make me wonder a bit just what those season 5 writers were thinking...I mean if the fans generally agree how things should have gone (bottom line: M&D should've gotten back together, at some point, whether early in the season or at the very end), then why not take things in that direction?
Of course, as the famous "bumper sticker" (!) says: "Judge not lest ye be judged." I guess if I love this show, I have to accept it, 5th season and all...but that doesn't mean I can't make some different choices, in my head!
"I don't want you losing any more sleep over me." "Believe me, if and when I ever find myself 'over' you, the last thing I'll be thinking about is sleeping."
It is amazing to think that since the show ended so badly yet we still love it so, well it's because the first 3 seasons are tops of all tv so you gotta love it right! But if the show ended happily maybe we wouldnt all be here talking about Fan fiction stories making it right AHHH the power of Fan fiction!

It`s sooo wonderful to have some new fan-fiction to read,the excitement and the thrill of a new story . It reminds me of when we would all be waiting with baited breath for new episodes . And just like the show this new fan- fiction story most definitely does not disappoint. . To me the true sign of good fan - fiction is that when your `e reading you can actually visualise the story as an episode in your head and David and Maddies characters come to life and jump out of the page/screen at you. These stories are just works of art . I absolutely love reading them. It just goes to show what can be done with the right magic and some great imagination .
