The 9th Year.

For Scott:

You're smarter, sexier, and more talented than Edward, funnier than Emmett, and much more empathetic than Jasper.

Your gentlemanly qualities far exceed Ashley Wilkes', and you look better in a tuxedo than Rhett Butler.

Legolas has pointy ears and Aragorn most likely smells pretty badly, so you easily trump those two.

You're a finer doctor than Jack Shephard, and your southern accent is more lilting than Sawyer's.

Mr. Darcy is rather stuck up, while Mr. Bingley is easily swayed, two traits that could never be used to describe you.

Angel and Spike are a pair of whiny pants. You never whine.

You wrote that post about how you are way cooler than Jason Statham and every word of it is true.

You are the real deal, in a world full of fiction, fantasy, and phonies.

Thank you for letting me dress up like this, nine years ago today:
When we both know eloping to Hawaii would have been much easier!
