Author's Summary:
It's safe to say that George wasn't really planning on any of this. AU for the first season of Grey's Anatomy.

Review:
It's like Derek/Meredith but with Derek/George and funnier! There are very few stories written in the Grey's Anatomy fandom (mostly because the show itself is already primarily about relationships) and even fewer well-written ones. However, this series is a true gem (especially for those that feel George should be featured more and be paired with someone other than Callie).

The series as a whole is unfinished, although each story can be read individually. While Derek is appears to be a confident and successful neurosurgeon to most people, he has insecurity issues and is really not that sure of himself (what with being dumped/cheated on by his wife Addison in the TV series and rejection from his family in these stories). Derek and George make a lovely couple; George is GOOD for Derek. Sure, George can be aloof sometimes, but he's grounded and has a simple world view, which can only do Derek good.

The third story sort of takes us to the end of season one where Addison appears (the author hasn't explicitly stated whether Addison and Derek were married). I hope the author will write more soon, because OMG ADDISON!
