Please Asprine don't compare the beautifull relationship betwenn Mac and Stella with GSR. It's absolutly different. Saw the other season. When sara arrive she's already in love with Grissom. It's why she chose Las vegas. During all season it'was like she's always with a big smile which said "please love me". It seem she only do something for to please Grissom. He say it to her during season 5. He must choose between her and Nick for promotion and he choose Nick. When she ask him why he answer her it's because she always wait congratulation not Nick. Nick do something because he believe in this. Compare Mac and Stella to Mulder and Scully why not? Because it's two people absolutly different but with same value who respect each other and don't change what they are. Who don't live and act only for please someone. If you see a little dr House sara/ Grissom it's like Cameron/House a young girl who have a daddy crush and pass her time to ask him why he doesn't love her.... Stella/Mac and Mulder/Scully are more like House/Cuddy. They are different but respect each other. If Mulder and Scully fell in love for each other it was for what they are. It's same between Mac and Stella. they complement each other. And it's why they are so chemistry between us. Their relationship begin with a beautifull and totally friendship. At this time they don't wait something more to each other. They are between us diference, respect, heard each other and be here for each other just because they're friend. Not because they wait something to the other. Stella doesn't here for Mac with the only question in her head (when he will love her). Same for Mac. If he 's here for Stella it's because he love her. At the beginning like a friend and after.... But it's for her that he's present not because He want use the situation for please to Stella. And that she fall in love with him. If you are a gsr fan i hope I don't hurt you. You understand that I don't like this couple (or all romance with a daddy crush like cameron and House). But it's not the question if i like or not it's only that mac/Stella relationship and Sara/Grissom relationship are absolutly different. For me a romance which star by a real friendship is more beautifull, true and real.... Look the difference between D/L and Smac.
