Love Letters, Sort Of – Teens Can Write, Too! April 2015 Blog Chain

tcwt-3[1]Hello, everyone! It’s time for another TCWT post! This month’s prompt is:

“Write a letter to a fictional couple.”

THIS WAS REALLY HARD TO WRITE, OK?! Waaaaay harder than it looked at first sight. Because I wanted to write to sooooo many fictional couples! And I just couldn’t decide! And then I reread the sign-up post and realized that I could write letters to any of the following:

  • A fictional couple I love
  • A fiction couple I hate
  • MULTIPLE FICTIONAL COUPLES
  • A character who desperately needs to see that they are passionately in love with [insert person here]

Huh. So, basically I need to actually read things closely because it saves me lots of trouble. Anyway, here are my letters! Enjoy!

-~-

"Gay or not gay?" "...gay."

“Gay or not gay?” “…gay.”

Dear Miss Everdeen,

It has come to my attention that you may be finding your current relationship a touch… unsatisfying, if I may say so. You seem to spend a great deal of your time worrying about and caring for and hugging a certain Miss Mason. And need I remind you that “Johanna Mason is oiling up her naked body for another wrestling session, I decide to stay put” is an actual thing you said back in that training center before the Quarter Quell? Hmmm? Ditch lover boy, puh-lease. Marry Johanna and ask Peeta to cater your wedding and design a beautiful wedding cake!

Sincerely,

A Joniss fan

Dear Mr. The Frog & Miss Piggy,

Why the hell do I adore a couple that’s made up of a frog and a pig?! Like, that’s just weird. But you two are cute – Kermit (is it OK if I call you Kermit? “Mr. The Frog” feels so formal) and Miss Piggy look adorable all dressed up in a tux and a dress. They say not to throw pearls before swine, but whoever this mysterious “they” is, they clearly don’t know what they’re talking about.

Sincerely,

A fan of the Muppets

-~-

last stand of dead menDear Mr. Sanguine,

I would like to congratulate you on acquiring such a fine girlfriend! You two are ADORABLY EVIL together – basically like a malicious power couple? It’s so cute how you trail after her, doing her bidding and helping her to bring about the end of the world. I’m truly sorry if any of this sounds sarcastic, because I really do love your relationship: I wouldn’t have bet any money on you two at the beginning, but you proved yourselves astoundingly endearing. In that hellbent-on-world-domination way.

Sincerely,

A fellow American mage

-~-

Dear Mrs. Vastra & Mrs. Flint,

All right, first of all, what’s the deal with your names? I can’t figure out how to properly address this letter; did either of you take the other’s name or what? Whatever. Anyway, CAN WE PLEASE KICK CLARA OUT OF THE TARDIS AND REPLACE HER WITH YOU TWO BEING RIDICULOUSLY CUTE AND KICKING BUTT WITH THE DOCTOR? PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

Sincerely,

A Whovian

untitledfxnnDear Khal Drogo & Khaleesi Daenerys,

OH MY GOD JUST SHUT UP AND RIP MY HEART OUT WHY DON’T YOU UGHHHHH YOU TWO STOP IT STOP IT RIGHT THIS SECOND YOU’RE JUST TOO CUTE TOGETHER AND THIS AMOUNT OF CUTENESS SHOULD BE ILLEGAL.

Sincerely,

A lowly peasant

-~-

Dear Miss Carter & Mr. Rogers,

OMG. YOU TWO ARE SO CUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTE AND BISEXUAL TOGETHER AND I CANNOT HANDLE THE… CUTENESS. Wow, I really need to think of some words other than “cute,” don’t I? Anyway, you’re perfect together in literally every way and STEVE YOU NINCOMPOOP you probably could’ve landed that plane BUT NOOOOO YOU HAD TO BE A DRAMA QUEEN AND LEAVE POOR AGENT CARTER ALL ALONE WHILE YOU TURNED INTO A FREAKING POPSICLE. But at the same time, don’t feel too bad about it because she found a cute waitress to date after you were gone so it’s all OK.

Sincerely,

OH GOD I’M SUCH A FAN

-~-

Hmmm, I’m noticing a pattern here – namely, that I grew steadily more FANGIRLY AND EXCITED AND ALL-CAPS-USING as the letters progressed. Teehee! Which fictional couples would you write letters to, and why?! What would you like to say to the couples I mentioned here?

  1. OKAY I DIED LAUGHING AT THE FIRST LETTER. That was wonderful. Awww, Kermit and Miss Piggy are the cutest things ever like who knows why because it’s a frog and a pic but whatever. LOVE THE MUPPETS. Gah, I really need to get further along in Doctor Who just to meet those two. Oh yay the list is posted *goes and edits original post of mine*!

    • nevillegirl says:

      GOOD I’M GLAD THAT WAS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE ONE TO WRITE. 😀

      Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, I’m always happy to find more people who love the Muppets – I don’t know very many who do, especially my age! They always put a smile on my face. 🙂

      I’ll have to remember to check out your post! 🙂

  2. Mo says:

    Such a deep post… my amazement at your literary analysis skills has just increased.

    • nevillegirl says:

      *thwacks you, but gently and playfully* Oh, be quiet. I am a PARAGON of literary analysis. Oh god, I’ll be so screwed in college & turn in English papers that read simply, “LOL I loved this book BECAUSE REASONS.”

      • Mo says:

        Don’t worry–the first time I showed a friend The Snowmen (subsequently getting her to watch DW) her reaction was to roll around on the floor moaning about how cute Clara is. Which, while true, doesn’t show deep analysis skills either. 😛

    • nevillegirl says:

      DUDE I NEED TO MEET YOUR FRIEND. Because that is 100% my reaction to Clara, or indeed to any cute lady characters ever. 😀

  3. Miriam Joy says:

    Haha, that’s one way of responding to the prompt! I actually found it hard to think of fictional couples I wanted to write to… I guess if I’d given it longer I would’ve been inundated with ideas so it’s probably just as well I didn’t.

  4. themagicviolinist says:

    *is freaking out because I had not thought about the possibilities of TV and movie couples and now ugh choices*

    I freaking love that you wrote to Kermit and Miss Piggy. xD They’re unbelievably adorkable. AND VASTRA/JENNY OMG. I want more! *pouts like a grumpy toddler*

    Your Steve/Peggy one made me laugh and also sad. Mission success? I think so. (Also, he could’ve landed that plane somewhere a bit safer, if he’d tried. Honestly.)

    • nevillegirl says:

      Ha ha, really? TV/movie couples are some of my favorites. 🙂

      *cries because there has been no news so far as to whether they’ll be in series 9*

      But he is a DRAMA QUEEN! 😛 And hey, if he hadn’t turned into a frozen Capsicle, there wouldn’t be nearly as many other cute pairings with Steve/someone else and Peggy/someone else. 😀

  5. Kate Gold says:

    Sweet!

    I’m starting a writing blog chain from my blog and am going to have a video chat with a bunch of interested people for some Q and A May 17 at 2:30 Eastern time. Would you be able to share with your subscribers? Its going to be hosted here: https://plus.google.com/events/ckno2nmcl497cg175gqaj5bf5sc and this pin covers all the details: https://in.pinterest.com/pin/565483296938521549/

    I know a mention is a lot to ask, but I would love to reach as many people as possible and your channel seems to be connecting spectacularly with this teenage audience.

    Leave me a comment either way at my blog: majesticgoldenrose.weebly.com

    • nevillegirl says:

      Oh… um, yeah, your blog chain idea sounds neat! Who knows, I might join in! I definitely won’t be able to take part in the video chat, though – I’m at work all day on Sundays. :/ Is there any other way to find out more about this chain?

  6. Heather says:

    Haha, fangirling is the best about the best (and worst) couples out there. Of all of them, I’m just going to say that Dany and Khal Drogo is the one that stabs at my heart and WHY ALL THIS PHYSICAL PAIN. THE ONLY CHARACTERS WHO HAD A DECENT SHOT AND HE DIES OF AN INFECTED BOO BOO. WHY. WHY.

    Ahem. Your letters were lovely. No, I’m not in emotional pain.

    • nevillegirl says:

      IKR IT WAS RATHER RIDICULOUS. “LOL Dany, I am a STRONG MANLY MAN who DOESN’T NEED ANY SILLY BAND-AIDS… oh wait. Ouchie.” *facepalms* What the heck, Drogo. You dork.

      Thank you! 🙂
