letters for jane

Dear Jane, first, sorry for being goofy in the priest’s office. I was just nervous, because I was scared about writing something for you, a writer. And I’ve been thinking about what to say, which got me to thinking how lucky I was to have met you at all and… all the small twists of fate that led me to you in the first place. And how, in a way, our destiny was just a series of detours bringing us back to each other… again and again. A twist of fate. The night we met, that’s what it felt like. I wasn’t even supposed to be working. I’d picked up a shift for my buddy whose kid was playing in a recital. And then I was technically off, but I took a detour and stopped for a burger a few blocks away. And I was heading back to the precinct when… “We’ve got a noise complaint on 25th. Any units nearby who can check it out? Yeah, I’m right there.” If not for that recital and that burger, I might not have ended up on the doorstep of a drunk 21 year-old girl. That’s not just a series of coincidences. It’s destiny. And I never doubted you were mine. And never doubt that all I want, forever and always, is for you to be happy.

Hey Con goer! So every SACANIME I write letters to people in homestuck cosplays and pass them out as PM!

But this year, I want to do things a bit differently! I want to have the letters signed by different characters! For example:

Dear John,

blah blah blah. (something about whatever and blah blah)

-Dave Strider

(there can be quirks, a ps at the end, and it can be written any way! IT CAN BE ABOUT ANYTHING!!)

But id need some help writing these! If anyone would like to send in their letters, id really appreciate the help! It can be to and from any homestuck characters (any kid, troll, and carapace!!) Im going all out on these letters, and im even starting on packages! (theyll contain things such as candy and little knick knacks of sorts!)

If youd be so kind to write these for me, Ill put your tumblr name at the end of the letter so people know who came up with the letter!! 

Please send them to my ask/submit box, or Reblog so others can see and help!

The reason i do this every year is to bring a little sweet and fun into the fandom that’s known to be toxic. Its so cool to see everyone smile when they open my letters! My first con friends were made when I handed them letters, and they thought it was the coolest thing!

Thank you so much for the help! I cant wait to see everyone! Maybe one of you will receive one!! I’m making extras this year! -Nina


“Don’t get me wrong, he’s a lovely bloke.”

northanger abbey isn’t just a lighthearted parody of gothic romances or a warning against reading so much that the lines between reality and fiction become blurred. it’s about a soft-hearted, open, and trusting girl who spends most of the novel being pulled between two very different kinds of people (sometimes literally, remember The Walk vs. the ride to Blaize Castle???) and has to learn to stand up for herself, to make sure that her kindness isn’t taken advantage of.

mostly it’s about learning to tell the difference between false friends and true, about gaining enough discernment to be able to recognize that a rosy view of the world can’t obscure everyone’s faults. And then it’s about being brave enough to cut ties with people who hurt and use you and strengthen bonds with people who love you and lift you up.
