It has been a big week! Insecure Writer's Support Group, HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY, Battle of the Bands results... a lot going on!
Now that the flurry is over, the countdown to V-Day is on. For those of you who need to get inspired, you have SEVEN days. I am here to help you with that. Inspiration, that is. The romance is on!
I am tagging all of these Love Is In The Air (even though the hop is over) and the following is a list of all the posts with links, so that you can watch any of your favorites that you missed.
Back at the beginning of this thing I asked YOU to share what you think are the most romantic moments on the big and small screen. I posted four of them over the weekend. I will still post them if you share in the comments!
Speaking of comments, some of your comments crack me up! Over the weekend I ran all movies and several of you indicated you'd never seen those TV shows. Hahahaha. I realize I must be more clear about what I am posting, since I am doing both.
The TV Show, Grey's Anatomy, is about two things: medical drama and relationships. Particularly in the earlier seasons, I was
With that build-up, let's concentrate on the romance instead. Meredith Grey (the Grey of Grey's Anatomy) and Derek Shepherd's romance was stormy until Season 5. Okay, it still has arctic blasts, occasionally, but they weather it together. This clip is from that fifth season and I think it is perfect.
Meredith and Derek or MerDer as they are commonly called...
Wasn't that beautiful? We all hope to marry someone who KNOWS US and APPRECIATES EVERYTHING about us. So often people love us IN SPITE OF certain things... or we love IN SPITE OF certain things. When we love someone because EVERYTHING about them is cherished and valued... well, I think that makes all of the difference.
The romance between Lexie and Mark was on a fast track to greatness until she broke up with him. Events from his past came back into play and she opted out. But the thing is... you can want to NOT love someone, but it doesn't really work that way. So Lexie spends a long time doing everything she can to not love him, and still... This scene ranks as one of my all-time favorites. Lexie finally realizes that no matter what she does, she loves him. And it all just gushes out. Unfortunately, the video will not embed. So you have to CLICK HERE to watch it.
When Grey's went on Winter Hiatus last year it ended with this scene. To give you just a bit of history... Jackson and April were best friends and then they became something else. They ended it because... well, does it matter why? If you watch the show, you know. If you don't... that's enough. Saying something is over and it actually being over... let's just say that maybe Jackson should have paid more attention to the whole Lexie/Mark debacle, because this is a show-stopper.
Jackson and April or Japril as they are also known...
Stand up and take it. If it is worth having, it's worth fighting for. It's unfortunate that we don't know what we want until we are pushed into the corner and forced to look at it. However this turns out... it was very brave of Jackson and pretty darn romantic.
