letters-verse

I don’t know if talking to you real time has made me miss you more or less. Either way, though, it was fantastic to do it; best (early) Christmas present I could hope to get.

I take it your Recon mission went well, considering you got a few days off and lived to tell me about it. You telling me you’re getting shot at doesn’t make me feel better, you hillbilly, even while I am fully aware that you guys can handle it. 

The library’s the same as it’s always been and always will be. As much as I’d hate to admit it, it’s a lot more dull without you showin’ up. Nate doesn’t come by as much now that he’s finished his book, so it’s just me, good coffee and the books (which doesn’t sound that bad, but it’s boring as shit.)

Three days to Christmas and we finally got some snow.

Wishin’ you were here to see it like a motherfucker.

Ephesians 4:22‭-‬25 (NIV)

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.

hiya! I was just thinking a few days ago about the original Letters, and I was wondering if you guys are ever planning on putting that on AO3? it's so fluffy & sweet, and it'd be nice to be able to give it a proper comment after all this time! :-)

Hiya right back!

The short answer is yes, we’ve talked about re-titling the original Letters thread, breaking it up, and posting it. The problem is we may have a bit too much in the hopper to pay it proper attention. Although, now that you have me thinking about it, I may have to start pestering Jen about titles. 

I mean, those two final term papers can wait, right? (Can you tell I’m at my rope’s end when it comes to grad school?)

Aw, Walt, Command is always making some goddamn ignorant move, but so far it’s no more fucked up than usual.

But check me out! A few weeks in and this motherfucker right here is already getting shot at during  legit recon missions. It’s a good thing, too, ‘cause Brad’s already been bitching.

Speaking of Brad, I’m sure he’s heard all about Nate’s war diary by now, but i’ll be sure to relay it sometime. I love when you tell me what to do, Walt, it gives me tingly feelings

How goes the business at the library?

-Ray

P.S. God I love when you say big words at me, too.

Ray's Christmas present to Walt while he was in Iraq was totally a realtime chat. Mostly he just sang cheesy-ass Christmas songs at him.
