And he would obviously have to sneak her into his bedroom at some point...  
This morning I put on eyeshadow and mascara before I remembered to put my contacts in.  Monday!

Reread nhpw  's "Writing Letters to Girls" series this weekend, and was struck by a thought.  Poor teenage and young adult John Sheridan, such a romantic, writing these letters to these girls he falls head over heels for, only to have his heart broken.  I was thinking, I wish he could write these letters to someone who was going to love him back.  I mean, obviously Anna comes next, but by then John will be an actual, complete adult, and not an adorable teenager.  Who could adorable teenage John write letters to who would write equally loving letters back?

Delenn, obviously.  Adorable teenage Delenn.

And then I spent way too much time yesterday in the times when I usually work out other writering things - doing dishes, in the shower, taking a walk - not thinking about actual writering things but instead thinking about a ridiculously AU world where tiny adorable teenage Delenn ends up as an exchange student at John's high school and they have tiny adorable teenage flirtations and he gives her his class ring and they have to sneak around behind the backs of her host family, etc.

Poll #1612594 Should I Write This Story?


This is a great idea!
Interesting idea, but don't you have other series to finish first?
Sorry, I just don't care for AUs.
What is wrong with you.
Of course, all of this is contingent on me figuring out a plot, since right now I'm mostly only thinking about tiny adorable teenage John/Delenn kissyface.

I am all about AU teenage John/Delenn adorableness, even if it is all kissyface.

I did not expect such support, I must be honest. But it would be so adorable! I'm gonna start cogitating on it in earnest, I think.

I have to say, I was afraid writing fanfic would distract me from my screenplays and such, but it's done the opposite; once I start writing and getting into that mode, then I end up staying in that mode. I finished my half of the pilot yesterday! I wrote for five straight hours! So yeah, anything to keep me feeling creative and writer-y is a good thing.

I know, right? I'm afraid that if I end up writing it, it'll just end up being too treacly, heh. Which is why I need a plot...

I have not answered your poll yet because... I suck. I want you to write this story, but you have to know by now that, like, 98 percent of the time I am a "I cannot deviate from canon, EVER, in the entire universe, forever and ever, amen" writer. But I feel like this story would make me giggle and be all kinds of cute if I can detach a bit and be less OCD about fic - which I am capable of, but I have to be in the right mood.

So - this is a good idea, and you should write it to prove that it can be done and done well.

Also you promised me a blow job initiation story first :P

Hee! I am going to break down your "canon only" walls brick by brick, I swear it!

I meant to add, also, that I would not be writing it in letter format; I'm not poaching on your idea. Your story is just what got me thinking about it in the first place. :D

I will write the blow job initiation! But I had to finish my pilot first, and now it's finished. And also, I can't write that story at work, so.

I'm so used to staying within the canon house walls but this idea is too damn cute to pass up. John and Delenn starting out as puppy love? Yes please. :D
Shannonkungfuwaynewho on August 30th, 2010 09:47 pm (UTC)
:D That's one of the reasons I did the poll; I know most of you aren't huge non-canon/AU fans, and I didn't want to write it if no one really cared to read it.

Which is not to say that I will necessarily get around to writing it, mind you...

Heheh, that IS lame and adorable and embarrassingly enough I think I'd like to read it, even though it'll probably cause tooth cavities, and I reckon if anyone could make it hilarious and awesome it's probably you.

Still, though, what is wrong with you? :]

(I've seen spoofs of other fandoms with the characters as little kids. Can't remember them right now, but I have seen them.)

Hee! I'm so glad someone voted for "what is wrong with you."

I have an embarrassing love for high school AUs. IDK.
