    Hi Sarah,

    I’ve never been so moved after reading your articles. You are truly a talented writer and I cannot compliment you enough, words can’t describe the emotions I’m feeling right now so Thank You very much. I look forward to reading more of your articles. As you have written and noting the comments above I too have been greatly affected by the Gallavich Story and had been wondering why it has made such an impact on me. After reading your article and hearing the other stories from fans, it has made it clearer to me why this fictional relationship on Showtime pulls at my heart strings each and every time.

    Obviously the writers of Shameless are extremely talented and deserve much credit for what they do. However, Noel and Cam have this chemistry that is so undeniably magnetic in their roles. Both of them being superb actors and award worthy of their performances. After reading your articles, I can see that I am not the only person that feels this way.

    Their raw and intense performances have done more than simply entertain the masses. They have helped breakdown perceptions of what a gay relationship means and help fight homophobia because Love is just Love. The social media storm of fandom and followers is proof of that. They have been able to open peoples minds to not only gay relationships but also shed a realistic and often misunderstood perception of mental illness and the struggles accompanying such a diagnosis.

    I have never seen anything like this on a TV show before and don’t believe it can ever be matched again. Thanks to extreme talents of Noel and Cam they have opened the minds and hearts of millions of viewers on an Epic Scale affecting generations of all ages. How do you offer praise or compliments for doing something like that and breaking through cultural barriers. I don’t think words can describe their impact and what they have done with with their performances.

    I have read that the return of Noel Fisher and Gallavich’s story in Season 7 has contributed to some of shows highest ratings ever. I hope that Showtime and John Wells will continue Gallavich in Season 8 and I can’t understand why they wouldn’t want Noel back as a season regular as clearly everyone else does. (I think I’ll write them a letter). 🙂

    Thank You again for your thought provoking and beautifully written articles. I will continue to follow you and look forward to your future articles.

    I’m late to the game on this article that I just found today. I should feel a little dumb admitting this, but this nearly brought me to tears while reading. Maybe it is the residual effect of 7×11, or the fact that S8 has just started filming without even the slightest hint that Mickey will be back, but really I’m sure it has more to do with the empathy of understanding what everyone else had to say and how it relates to them… me. As always Sarah, I love your articles and that you are rooting for Gallavich. Fuck John Wells. Thank god for Fan Fics. Twitter @usalas4 – chocolate and wine is still an offer on the table to keep you writing 😉
