Happy August, y’all! Okay, so you may have noticed War Stories wrapped yesterday (after almost exactly eleven months – it started here!), and the Blue House is in a tiny bit of chaos as a result, what with there being a party going on and the WIPlanning folk moving in to start work. So we’ll have to work around them to get this post written.
The prompt was Write a prospective sidekick’s application letter to their dream mentor.
I’ve not had much free time lately – I am, again, doing that TV thing I did last year, and while I really enjoy it, it takes up a lot of time – so I did a bunch of short notes rather than full letters. Some of my characters, some canon characters.
- Dear Captain Harkness, Since Torchwood has gone all international since the Miracle, would you be open to considering a New Zealander as the sixth member of your team? I’m studying chemistry and physics at the moment, and I’m quite handy with computers, and knowing random useful things, and sort of useful with swords. I can get myself to Cardiff if you’ll have me. Please say yes. Yours sincerely, Rosalie Sorensen.
- Dere Mother, i am big
enufenuohg to fite bad gysguys with you and be a super-hero-een like you said I shold be one day. Plees can i be your side-kick now? Love from Zielonya.
- Dear Sir Gawain, now that Terence has gone back to Avalon, would you be needing a new squire? You’re kind of my favorite knight ever and frankly, while my swordfighting is fine for the modern age, it’s not up to medieval scratch. So I could use a teacher, and I figure you could use someone to do the cooking and help look after Guingalet and not get upset when there’s magic around. Hoping to hear from you by return of raven, I remain, yours sincerely, Rosalie.
- Dear Qui-Gon, Master Alann says now Anakin’s here you’re going to train him instead. What do I need to do to change your mind? Because I really really want to be your Padawan when I’m older. And you said I could be. Nasriel.
Going to have to knock off there.
Next month’s topic is The perfect ending. So you’ve written a story, and now you just need to tie it off neatly – what makes an ending perfect for you?
Thanks for reading.
