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.
