Day 13: Forgive me?Dear Eric,
It really should not surprise you that you are indeed the one of whom I'd like to beg forgiveness. You are the only person in recent years that I have said horrible things to that I would do near anything to be able to take them back; I have already apologized to anyone else, but have been to cowardly and awkward to do the same with you. But, I can not take the words back, so the best I can do is ask for you to forgive me, though I would understand completely if you did not.
However, in light of recent events, I am beginning to wonder if I might not already have your forgiveness. I do not know if you are one to keep a grudge, but you simply do not seem the type in my opinion. Besides, if one is keeping a grudge against someone, would one constantly smile when speaking to them, strike up conversations with them, or say that they can be 'Bus Buddies'?
I think this letter may be redundant, but oh well.
Day 12: Caused the most painDearest Eric,
Are you getting tired of these constant letters yet? Well, you shall have to endure a few more, for I am not yet finished.
I suppose that I am meant to be angry with you in this letter, as this is to the person who I hate or caused me the most pain. I do not hate, I never have, but you are the one who has caused me the most pain. However, I find that I am beyond the anger, hurt and betrayal that I felt when you first did that. I am no longer upset with you, indeed I can see it from your point of view too, after you explained it to me.
We must agree to disagree on the subject of lying to save a person's feelings.
Well now, I think that this may be a first; I have almost nothing left to say to you. I've said everything in my previous letters, and now know not what to write.
I suppose that I could always ask you what you feel for me now, as you have been acting differently around me, but I will probably not get an answer. Or, at least, not a straight one. I have learn
Day 11: Talk to deceased?Suilad hir-nin,
You are simply awe-inspiring. You've created more for the world of Arda in your life, than most men could in two lifetimes! It is quite mind-boggling. You are just s indescribably amazing! Your Legendarium is beloved by fans young and old around the world, and I am definitely one of them.
I have so many questions that I could ask you. Where, how on Earth did you find the ideas, the inspiration for this wonderful world you created? I read once that you created first the languages, and then the world to fit them, but still! And you did not invent just one, but multiple functioning languages, each with its own rules and grammar and... Then there were all of the different Peoples, their histories and legends, the history of the land of Arda itself... However did you keep all of this organized in your mind? I get lost easily with stories that I write for pleasure or school assignments.
To spend a few short minutes with you would be pure Heaven.
I have not yet read all of you
Day 10: Don't talk to as muchMy dear Eric,
Yes, this letter is to you. We do not speak nearly as much as I'd like, but considering what "we've" been through, I guess that I ought to count myself lucky that we even speak at all. And I suppose that we will never truly talk to each other as much as I'd like, seeing as one of my favourite sounds is your voice. That is actually the reason why I told you that I was truly the wrong person to ask if you mumble when you speak.
I am in tune with you; I hear every word you say, I always somehow seem to know where you are, and can pick you out in a crowd within mere seconds. Your voice effectively hypnotizes me, as whenever you speak, I stop whatever I am doing, just to listen.
Anyway, I guess I really just want to say that I miss how we used to be. I miss our openness, our ability to talk for hours on end. I miss our closeness, your teasing (yes, even that time that you stole my agenda and stuck it down your shirt to keep it from me), everything. That was one of the b
Day 9: Some1 you wish to meetMy Lord Elrond,
Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo!
How I wish that I could meet you! There is so much that I should love to ask you, that I could learn. It would be a dream come true for me. However, I would have to pray that you are patient with curious youths, as I would be a never-ending stream of questions. Unfortunately for me, I know that this meeting can never come to pass, as if you were real, then you would have passed out of mortal reach a full three Ages ago; as it stands, you are still just a figment of one man's imagination who has simply grown quite special to me.
You shall ever be my favourite Half-Elven elf lord.
Day 8: Fav. internet friendDear CallistoHime,
You are amazing. Your writing style is just... insanely wonderful. You are extremely talented for such a young person (though, for me to be calling you young is rather... ehhh.... Yeah.).
I do not always fave your art, nor comment on all of your pieces, but know that I adore everything in your Gallery. Time Cannot Erase and Among the Ashes are some of the absolute best fanfictions that I have ever read. You always keep the reader on the edge of their seat, yet there is always just enough humor to balance out the drama and suspense. Your world of Diem is so detailed that it is hard not to be sucked in. In my books, you are almost on par with David Clement-Davies and J.K. Rowling.
I will try to comment on more of your things, with more depth than the usual fangirl insanity. You deserve it.
Your faithful watcher,
Bien, vous êtes français, alors je vais faire l'effort de vous écrire en français
Day 7: Ex boyfriend, etc.Dear Bradley,
Well, it has been a while, now hasn't it? When was the last time we spoke? Oh yes, I believe it was almost four years ago now. And through a completely impersonal email, on your part. And then nothing. For three and a half years, nothing. Then, not too long ago, you came up on my facebook, asking to be friends.
I'm sorry, but really? I am normally not one to keep a grudge, but that was a little harsh, no? I know that my first email in the summer was rather... out there, but still. I was young, I was stupid, and I was damn smitten by you. And the way that you said goodbye to me on that last day of school before you left for another was not particularly helpful. Kissing a girl on the cheek who you know for a fact has a giant crush on you is most certainly not the way to tell her that you are not interested. You gave me no indication whatsoever in your one email of your feelings for me, kept it to barely 3 lines and completely impersonal.
That hurt Bradley. That reall
Day 6: StrangerDear Stranger,
Do not expect to learn much from me in this letter. I do not know who you are, or what you intentions are. However, I will try to give you the benefit of the doubt, so I will split this in two parts.
If you are a well-meaning person who merely wishes to be my friend, then I hope that you are a patient person. I am not very open or trusting by nature, so it will be a long while before I let you get close to me. You will have to earn my trust before I open up to you. However, once I have opened up, you will find that I am fiercely loyal and protective of all my friends. So, do not betray that trust, as I will close back up again, and it will be much harder the second time around for you to get into my heart.
Now, if you are not of a mind to become my friend, my first question would be, not to be rude or anything, but, what do you want with me? I mean no offense, I simply am not a real 'people person'. I am not overly sociable, and I will not go up to people I do not know.
