GK
Hey there
Emma W
morning! how are you?
GK
Glad I have a day off. Just woke up, in fact. You?
Emma W
oh, sorry, I got distracted. I’m awesome! WEEKEND YAY!
GK
Are you talking to HazFan?
Emma W
no? I don’t think she’s awake yet. why?
GK
No, nothing.
Saw her latest fic, though. Not bad...
Emma W
I told you so. She’s not as terrible as you thought!
GK
though
Emma W
And she’s a darling.
GK
a boy band AU, really?
Emma W
wasn’t it brilliant?! I had to help her a bit with it but
she’ll be a BNF in no time.
GK
You two realize this is a sci-fi fandom.
Emma W
you can’t stop the shipping.
or the AUs.
no, but seriously
I think it’s a pretty good effort for her age.
GK
You were way better than her when you were 18.
Emma W
as if!
I’m still traumatized from the first time you betaed for me, omg
cruel cruel man
I’m happy that you like Haz now, though.
GK
Speaking of, when are you sending me _your_ next chapter? You can’t drop Old War Horses now.
Emma W
ugh I know
got two more asks about it.
otoh
Tumblr! :D
GK
Yeah yeah.
Just don’t start on any new plotbunny.
You haven’t heard from HazFan then?
Emma W
heard what?
GK
No, just. I heard something and I thought you’d know about it already.
Emma W
maybe? what was it?
GK
Just that someone would like to meet her IRL.
That’s all.
Emma W
WHO?
ELTON???
GK
Elton? wtf
ROB.
Emma W
Oh him
yeah not happening.
GK
That’s what you think.
He told me he was going to ask.
He would go all the way to Marseille, too, just to meet her.
Emma W
creepy.
GK
What?
Emma, they’ve been talking for ages.
And he really likes her.
Emma W
Well she doesn’t like him.
GK
I guess we’ll have to see.
Emma W
he emailed her while I was online yesterday
and she said no.
:)
GK
She told you about it?
Emma W
I saw the emails.
GK
You mean you wrote hers.
Emma W
lololol of course not!
GK
Are you seriously telling me that she said no? To Robert?
Why?
Emma W
oh, of course, since a guy asked to meet irl, she should fall all over herself to say yes
just because they’re friends
doesn’t mean she likes him that way
GK
Emma, Rob's a good guy. He *really* likes her.
Emma W
right, right, since he is a good guy
and he likes her
she obviously must like him back
she has no say in the matter
GK
You have no say in the matter.
I mean
I’ve seen them flirt on Tumblr, I thought she liked him?
And I know _you_ don’t like him. And you and Haz have this padawan-master thing going on.
Did you talk her into saying no?
Emma W
she made her own mind.
as for why I don’t like him,
GK
I don’t know why I even asked.
Emma W
he said he prefers movie-verse to book-verse
though he hasn’t even read the books
and also they live too far apart
and also he doesn’t have a career.
otherwise, he’s perfectly fine
just not for Haz.
GK
Are you even being serious?
He lives in the UK, she lives in France. Okay, it’s not the same country, but
there are low-cost flights and he just wanted to meet her, not propose.
ALSO SHE WANTS TO BE A HAIRDRESSER.
Emma W
WHAT'S WRONG WITH BEING A HAIRDRESSER
GK
Nothing! It’s just as much of a career as being a MECHANIC
Emma W
A MECHANIC IN FUCKING WALES
HAZ WANTS TO WORK IN PARIS
GK
I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU
Okay.
Look, let’s drop it.
Emma W
okay.
GK
Right.
Emma W
G, I know he’s your friend
and he probably does like her a lot but
Haz can do better
GK
You are delusional.
Emma W
no, listen, she’s young, she’s pretty, she’s French...
GK
She's silly, she’s boring...
Emma W
omg, George, she’s eighteen, she is a doll
and she deserves the best!
GK
So, what, you’re playing matchmaker again?
Who is it this time? HazFan and...
Elton?
Emma W
No!
GK
Because Elton is dating that girl from Canada.
Emma W
Yeah right. LOL
the canadian girlfriend
I’m not playing anything.
don’t get mad!
GK
No, you probably did Rob a favor.
I’ll go now, grocery shopping.
Emma W
ok, bye!
will you be back later?
asdfgh.

 


Saturday, December 22, 2012 - 5:01 pm

Emma W
You’re not angry anymore?
GK
You’ve sent me pictures of your baby niece.
Obviously I can’t stay mad in the face of that.
Emma W
I know! :D
she’s just too cute
she’s going to grow up to be as spoiled as I am
GK
I guess I must be thankful I never met you while you were a baby
Emma W
LOLOL you kinda did?
you called me a baby the first time we met
and I was so offended
I was a FRESHMAN in COLLEGE mind you
of course I thought you were so old and interesting
GK
At 25?
Emma W
now I am already 25
and I feel anything but old and interesting
GK
Spoiler alert: 32 isn’t old or interesting either.
Emma W
oh please, you were born old and interesting.
will you be travelling home, then?
GK
For New Year’s. I volunteered for the Christmas shift.
Emma W
both days?
Dad says you should come over whenever you’re not at the hospital
and we will feed you properly christmassy food
I can also make latkes like last year
better than last year’s I hope
GK
Sure.
Latkes are latkes, even when slightly charred.
Is he doing okay?
Emma W
yeah, you really nailed it with the new meds.
<3
GK
Now that you’re done buttering me up, do you want me to take a look at your Secret Santa fic?
Emma W
well I never
YES
though you really don’t need to, I asked Taylor!
but she always says everything is good
;_;
I really don’t want to bother you though?
GK
Send it to me, silly
Emma W
also I was NOT buttering you up
I don’t like it at all when we’re not talking
it’s depressing.
GK
Got it.
Who was it for again?
Emma W
Fairfax. You know, she of the thousands of Tumblr followers.
GK
You have a lot of followers too.
?
Emma W
she writes so much better than me, it’s unfair.
GK
Aaah. Well, she does write very well. I didn’t know she was back in the fandom though.
Emma W
ahhh she could have stayed with the Star Trek Reboot crowd :(
GK
You realise she isn't trying to compete with you at all.
She has recced your fics at least twice.
Emma W
omg do you follow her too???
no, I know
it makes me feel super lame though
like, I’m all happy with my what-ifs and pwps and such
and then she posts something and it’s the perfect character study
40,000 words of faultless plot and execution
while my WIP folder is getting ridiculous
GK
ahahah
Emma W
and I am like OGHH I HATE HER
and then she posts this super thoughtful rec of Quest
and I’m like, DAMN
you understand, right???
GK
hahahah
But your fics have similar stats. And I think Quest has more hits?
Emma W
BUT HERS ARE BETTER!
mine are just popular because of all the sex.
GK
And the banter.
Emma W
and the banter.
Are you betaing now?
GK
Yes.
Emma W
ok.
is it horrible?
GK
No. Let me read.
Emma W
ok.
<3
GK
:)


 

Friday, January 4, 2013 - 9:56 pm

Emma W
Geooooorge!!!!
GK
Hey :)
Emma W
happy new year!!
GK
Happy New Year
Emma W
how’s your family?
GK
Good. My brother said hi.
What’s up? Something is up.
Emma W
did the excessive !! give me away?
GK
Yes.
Emma W
lol
well
it’s nothing good actually
I just really wanted to tell you but you were
in a remote cabin in the woods somewhere
you didn’t even check your email!!
GK
I did, I just was too lazy to mail you back.
Emma W
jerk
GK
:D
Emma W
okay so what happened is
Elton made a pass at me
and then his canadian girlfriend
who's actually a real person
(I hope)
started sending me hatemail
!!!
GK
WHat
Emma W
I KNOW
?!!
I totally thought she was made-up!
like, an in-joke!
GK
But
what happened between you and Elton?
Emma W
what
lol
it was super awkward
he was like “I’ve loved you since forever”
by which he meant Halloween
(Haz and I posted our Elementary cosplay pictures
and he went on about it, remember?)
and I was like
“what???” and “I THOUGHT YOU LIKED HAZ”
and had to block him from this account
because he kept insisting
and then he made a cryptic post in his DW
but it wasn’t cryptic enough because his girlfriend
who's not only real but has a tumblr
totally understood and started messaging me
so I had to block her too.
WTF.
GK
There’s a fandomwank report.
Emma W
oh yes
you’ll be happy to see that even if they mention me a lot
they can’t quote anything I said
because I refrained from, well
I was good
:)
GK
Haha
I’m so proud.
Emma W
MissB posted at length about it though
she’s really outraged the poor dear
and it somehow evolved into a flamewar
because the girlfriend is in idek what big fandom
and one of her followers
and one of MissB and Fairfax’s
are mortal enemies or something.
So the wank report is mostly about that.
GK
Are you ok though?
Emma W
Bah, I don’t care about the mess
this is nothing to the shipping war ‘08
GK
ahahaha
Emma W
I’m angry they’ve upset MissB, though
AND HAZ! :( Haz is sad.
we thought Elton was flirting with her
and she was really into him and all.
GK
Didn’t you two consider the fact that he _had a girlfriend?_
Emma W
well
if he had acted like he had one
she would never had thought about him twice
besides, a *girlfriend in Canada*
it’s actually a tvtropes page and all, how were we supposed to know?
and he kept saying things
like we were really cute
by which we thought he meant Haz was cute
I mean
she has blond ringlets
and she was gorgeous as Moriarty!!
she got nonnie compliments and everything!
GK
heh
of course, you didn’t get _any_ feedback at all.
Emma W
well, I was pretty dashing :p
but I also got those “I thought you were white! KAWAII!”, remember?
GK
Ugh.
Yes.
Emma W
you know, you set really high standards
for the men in my life
GK
What?
Emma W
well, if I didn’t know you
I wouldn’t be surprised when guys pull things like this
(hitting on someone while they have a girlfriend I mean)
but I’m always blindsided because I know you
and you would never do something like that
does that make sense?
GK
I’ll take it as a compliment?
Emma W
I guess this is how Tom Hiddleston’s little sister feels
if he has one.
GK
I guess.
Emma W
oh, g2g, Dad wants to play backgammon
GK
Good night then.
Emma W
Night! :*

 


Thursday, February 14, 2013 - 1:49 am

GK
Don’t you work tomorrow?
Emma W
Hey! omg
don’t you?
GK
Got the flu.
Spent the afternoon sleeping and I just woke up.
Emma W
AW BB
how terrible is it?
GK
101-102 F
Emma W
:(
I bet you forgot your scarf in the subway again
and then forgot to get a new one
GK
Forgot it in my office, actually.
Then went ice-skating with Sheila over the weekend and… terrible idea.
Emma W
omg you said you two were done!
GK
Yeah, yeah, it was a terrible idea in all of its facets. Sheila, the lack of scarf, the actual ice-skating.
Emma W
poor baby
there there
at some point we’ll stop making terrible life decisions
and we’ll be happy forever
GK
That would be nice.
Speaking of terrible life decisions,
what are you doing up?
Emma W
I’m still editing the damn thing.
GK
the chapter or the Rare Ship abomination?
Emma W
the abomination
I’m not happy with the dialogue.
it was kinda contrived, right?
GK
Well you _are_ writing about two dudes who aren’t even in the same timeline
and they're brothers
and one of them is a priest
I don’t know how it could be *natural*
Emma W
so that’s why you don’t write, you have no imagination
GK
heh
Emma W
also, they are only half-brothers.
who didn’t grow up together because of the timeline thing
GK
Stop worrying, Emma, it was good.
Emma W
yeah, but tell me the truth
Fairfax’s is so much better
GK
Actually
Emma W
omg DON’T YOU DARE
GK
It was awesome.
I loved it.
I didn’t even find a single comma where there shouldn’t be one.
Emma W
so first you beta for her
now you like her better
I FEEL SO BETRAYED
GK
ahahah
Emma W
otoh, you do have a fever
GK
My judgement's clearly impaired
since I still like you better.
Emma W
awwwww
but I don’t believe it
you *hate* my rareship
GK
incest, Emma.
Emma W
also, Taylor has this theory
that you have a crush on Fairfax
GK
On Jimena?
Why would she think that?
Emma W
THAT’S WHAT I SAID
GK
Oh, that’s what you said?
You don’t think I like her?
Emma W
duh
of course you like her
even I can admit she’s really nice and smart
and talented ¬¬
but you don’t like-like her.
GK
Of course, I forgot you know everything.
Emma W
that’s right :D
...I’m right, yes?
GK
Yeah.
She’s really cool and all, but
she’s way too quiet for me.
I’m quiet enough for two, I like outgoing people.
Emma W
aw
well
don’t worry baby
we’ll find someone for you
GK
Nope. No.
Not happening.
Emma W
ahahahaha
you don’t trust me at all do you?
GK
Of course not.
The fic, though. Want me to have a go again?
Emma W
are you kidding me, you have a fever.
i’m not THAT selfish
GK
But I’m bored.
Emma W
answer the 11 questions meme already, then?
I tagged you ages ago
no, I’m just being silly because
Frank did the fanart
and it was AWESOME
I showed you, right?
GK
Yes you did.
Emma W
just. THEIR FACES
AS THEY GAZED INTO EACH OTHER’S EYES
_INCESTUOUSLY_
GK
D:
Emma W
lololol
Frank’s really good, don’t you think?
I can’t believe he’s not drawing professionally.
GK
You know, Weston thinks the fact that they’re both the only offspring of Valdor in their verses
means that they’re actually the same person.
Emma W
yup
GK
In that case you just wrote 13k of wank.
Emma W
I did!
isn’t it _glorious!_
GK
Better than the incest, yeah.
Emma W
:p
I’m off to bed, baby
I can barely keep my eyes open
you should go rest too?
GK
In a minute.
Emma W
Before you do, check your Tumblr inbox?
GK
Why?
Not another meme.
!!!
FICLET
Emma W
get better! :D
GK
:D
You’re the best. Thanks.
Emma W
don’t you forget it.
I’ll drop by tomorrow with chicken soup. <3


 

Friday, April 19, 2013 - 7:13 pm

Emma W
ughhhhhhhhhhhh
GK
Hello
How was your week?
Emma W
ghghhhhhhhhh
GK
Did you get bitten by a zombie?
Emma W
by a toddler
GK
hahaha
Emma W
but that was yesterday
today we had a horrible day at the station
and I really missed Taylor
because she knows how to deal with this stuff
GK
What happened?
Emma W
well
you work in a hospital
so it will probably sound like a really uneventful day for you
but basically
we had a giveaway so the telephones were ringing all the time
the guest for the 2pm spot was nearly an hour late
and Elsa got nervous and hyper on air
though it’s not her fault because she’s still a newbie really
my dad kept texting me
Lua’s toddler (the biter) was sick so she’s been bringing him in
which worked fine yesterday but today he was a terror
Our boss was upset because of the ratings
and I had to talk him into letting me handle my team
again
he solves (not) everything by screaming to people
and now that I’ve started I would love to continue ranting
but that was it
I actually managed everything and no-one died
it’s not even that terrible, right?
oh god I’m a whiny brat
sorry
GK
hahhaha
Emma W
newsflash: emma will always complain about stuff
GK
Nah
You’re generally pretty tough I think
Emma W
:)
GK
So what are your plans for tonight?
Emma W
TUMBLR
GK
Also, was your dad okay?
Emma W
specifically, cute animal gifsets
oh, yes, mostly
he doesn’t like his new nurse yet
I keep telling him you know her but
GK
Give him time. :)
Emma W
Yeeeah…
Have you seen Taylor online lately?
GK
No, why?
Everything ok?
Emma W
Oh more than
last week she told me her period was late
GK
TMI :(
Emma W
WE MIGHT BE AUNT&UNCLE
GK
OH
ahaha
Well that would make your day.
But if you don’t mind, I’d rather they tell me.
Emma W
boo
just act surprised
you’ll be the next one to know anyway
Weston will fret about everything and ask you all the pregnancy questions
also when the baby is born and has a fever
GK
I’m suddenly so glad they don’t live in Portland.
Emma W
I miss Taylor. :(
WHY DID WESTON HAVE TO LIVE IN CALIFORNIA
WHY DID THEY HAVE TO MARRY
GK
Only one state away!
Emma W
(oh wait, yes, I set them up :p)
It might as well be in Australia
I’ve never even been out of oregon you know
GK
:(
We’ll go on a road trip someday,
visit them in Oakland.
Emma W
go to SF and see the golden gate!
GK
Then down to LA.
Emma W
yeeeees
then fly to Europe!
GK
Sightsee in Rome.
Emma W
si si si
and geek around in Londres
GK
Relax in Spain?
Emma W
AND FINALLY PARIS
I want to go to Paris so bad
GK
Your dad would probably survive two weeks without you.
Emma W
noooo
he’d wilt and be miserable
and never tell me about it.
:(
GK
:/
And your sister?
Emma W
her family doesn’t fit in our flat
and only something extreme would force him to spend days in the countryside
like, idk, a roach infestation
GK
I can get you some roaches.
Emma W
I’LL PRETEND YOU DIDN’T SAY THAT
UGH
no but seriously
I had my passport done and all two years ago
it’s languishing in a drawer.
GK
I remember one conversation years back
where you insisted you didn’t want to travel at all.
Remember?
Emma W
yeah, it was the kind of thing where
it seemed like a lot of hassle
and it’s not like I could even if I wanted to
so...
GK
We’ll do the road trip. You’ll see.
Emma W
Okay.
:)
GK
:)
Emma W
Oh, aren’t you excited about the CWC?
GK
The what?
Emma W
the Co-Writing Challenge Frank's organizing!
GK
Isn’t Frank an artist?
Emma W
normally.
But we’re going to do something together, he already asked :)
oh come on
don’t pretend you hadn’t heard of it
everyone has reblogged it
even if you blocked my posts
Fairfax has been signal boosting it
GK
I just want everyone to finish their WIPs.
(I haven’t blocked you).
Emma W
Aw come on
we’ll finish them later
just think
more fic!
I’m doing it with Frank
and MissB got Fairfax to write with her
I’m hoping MissB will learn something, tbh
Elton asked Haz, I don’t know why
but she’s a doll so she said yes
GK
If _you_ don’t know why...
Emma W
stop it.
She IS awesome.
ANYONE would want to do things with her
WRITE things I mean (omg my mind is dirty)
but you should have seen his reaction when I told him I had thought he liked her
are you 100% sure you don’t want to participate?
GK
Yes.
I’ll just read the fic
and lounge around the days before the due date
while all my dash freaks out about it.
Hey, I have to go, I’m meeting friends.
Emma W
Oh, okay
Have fun!
<3
GK
You too. Happy tumblring :)


 

Wednesday, June 21, 2013 - 9:24 pm

Emma W
YOU WROTE FIC
YOU WROTE FIIIIC
OMG OMG AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
GK
I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Emma W
YOU. WROTE. FIC.
GK
Did I.
Emma W
even better
YOU WROTE FIC WITH HAZ!!!!!
GK
If I had known you’d get this excited I would have done it before.
Emma W
IT WAS AMAZINGGGGG
GK
How did you know it was me??
Emma W
please, bitch
your pet peeves showed
also Ararc’s characterization, that’s yours
also she told me.
but I had already guessed!
GK
It was fun.
Emma W
oh please
the only more amazing thing than the fact that you WROTE FIC
and it was AWESOME
is that I know you did it just to help Haz out
GK
Elton was a jerk to her.
Emma W
I KNOW RIGHT
dropping her like that
a month before the deadline
GK
Apparently his girlfriend told him to,
or so he told Henriette.
Emma Wu
I can’t believe I once thought he was a decent person
ugh
you even told me once but I didn’t listen
GK
(as usual)
Emma W
(as usual)
and the girlfriend
well, after he propositioned me while dating her
I don’t blame her *that* much
Haz is adorable <3 and French!
No, seriously, you’re my hero.
GK
I have to say
Henriette is way more interesting than I gave her credit for.
You were totally right about that.
Emma W
look at you, calling her by name and all!
she’s the sweetest, isn’t she?
GK
And she’s doing so much better since you started helping her out
I’ve been kind of disparaging but
you were right, she’s a really sweet girl.
Emma W
:D :D :D
GK
:)
Emma W
I’m so happy you think so! Now we can all be friends!
GK
hah
Emma W
Oh, have you read ours yet?
it felt so weird posting something you hadn’t read first
I did the descriptions and Frank mostly did the dialogues
it was fun!
GK
No, not yet.
I’ve been kind of busy
Emma W
We set it in NYC and all, since Frank lives there
it was super cool
WHICH REMINDS ME
now that you’re finally writing
we should totally do our own co-written thing
GK
Oh no
I’ve unleashed a monster.
Emma W
just think!!! THAT HOSPITAL AU PLOTBUNNY
you said I shouldn’t write it because I have no idea what an hospital's really like
and it would end up being like Grey’s Anatomy
or ER
GK
Oh! Yes.
Emma W
well if we wrote it together
WHICH WE TOTALLY SHOULD
you could make it as realistic as you wanted!!!
GK
That would mean making it super boring. I mean I’m a neurologist, it’s not the most riveting specialization.
Emma W
booo
your lack of imagination
and artistic ambition
astounds me greatly
not.
GK
Let’s meet on Friday and discuss it over beers?
Emma W
okay! :D
GK
Pick you up at 7?
Emma W
wait wait no
Skype date!
sorry
raincheck?
better yet, can we meet like at 11? or saturday evening?
G, are you there?
GK
Yes, sorry.
Emma W
well?
GK
Who’s the date with, Frank?
Emma W
lol no
Haz has a big English oral exam on Saturday so we’re practising
GK
That’s nice of you. :)
Emma W
we mostly gossip and talk about boys, tbh
anyway.
beers and plotting?
GK
Saturday's ok?
Emma W
wait no
GK
? :(
Emma W
I went to the BEST korean bbq the other day
I tasted the meat and I thought: George will love this
so we’re going there
GK
Sounds good. :D
Emma W
pick me up at 6?
GK
You got it.

 


Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 11:34 am

Emma W
hey you!
GK
Hey Emma
Are you chatting from work?
Emma W
only logged in to see if you were online
so don’t think too badly of me
GK
Bad day?
Emma W
nope :)
I just wanted to tell you to turn your radio on
our guest today is that dog trainer you like
he’ll be on in 10
it’s your day off, isn’t it?
GK
Oh :)
I know, I was already listening.
Emma W
You were?!
this is why you’re my favorite.
Oh
are you free on Saturday??
GK
I could be
What’s the plan?
Emma W
FRANK'S COMING
IT’S SO EXCITING
we’re going out to dinner
you should come, it will be fun!
also you know the best places.
GK
Ah
I didn’t know that.
Emma W
lol
really?
how did you not know?
GK
I might have blacklisted ‘fremma’.
Emma W
LOLOL
I know, we’re a pain in the ass
are you coming on Saturday though?
GK
Why would I?
Emma W
To meet Frank?!
GK
Not really interested.
Emma W
???
GK
What?
Emma W
well if it was ANYONE else
even MissB or Haz
you would totally join us
so
you really don’t like frank.
GK
Well
No.
Emma W
WHY???
wait brb the dog dude's here
he’s really nice!
I can wait for your explanation until after the interview
:p
GK
Not going to explain myself.
Emma W
back
That’s what you think.
I just don’t understand?
Is it something he said?
GK
No.
He just rubs me the wrong way.
Also, what's that thing with him and Fairfax?
Emma W
Oooh
it’s not what you think!
(sorry I keep spacing out, I’m producing a radio show :P)
MissB told me they met in SDCC
and are, like, friendly acquaintances
also he’s done the fanart for two of her longfics
the werewolf one and the Firefly crossover?
GK
Yes.
Emma W
I know you feel protective of Jimena after she came out and all
but everyone who’s someone has been very supportive
Frank too.
GK
So that Dixon joke…?
Emma W
IS NOT TRANSPHOBIC
omg George I would never
GK
I know
But what is it about?
Emma W
Oh, MissB said Fairfax has a secret admirer <3
and we think it’s Dixon
he’s a dudebro in the ST fandom
she’s never denied it, so
and it would make so much sense that she wouldn’t acknowledge him
Frank said he talked to her a lot at SDCC.
GK
I think it annoys her, when you two mention it.
Emma W
oh
okay
I won’t do it again then?
Can I do something to change your mind and get you to come to dinner?
GK
Nah
Just have fun
Be safe.
Emma W
Oh, we’re totally meeting in a public place
but it’s FRANK
I don’t think he’s going to turn out to be a creeper
GK
Go back to work, Emma.
Emma W
okaaaay
:*

GK
Seriously?
Seriously, Emma?
Emma W
oh god
this is about MissB right
GK
Obviously. What were you thinking?
Emma W
It was a joke, I was joking, I didn’t mean anything by it
I don’t think she got that offended, right?
I mean
GK
She posted about it. In her personal tumblr.
You should go and see it.
Emma W
what?
oh god I didn’t even know she had a secret tumblr
GK
What.
Emma W
okay, look
I know I was out of line but
I kind of got carried away
and I didn’t say anything that wasn’t true?
and
GK
What are you, five? thirteen??
It’s not that it wasn’t true.
Just
Emma W
:(
GK
Her life's so much harder than yours
And you have no right to pass judgement on her writing
UNASKED
and definitely NOT CONSTRUCTIVE
in a discussion SHE IS PART OF.
You know she couldn’t go to college,
you know she has two jobs,
and has to take care of her mother 24/7,
and problems she hints at but doesn’t explain
because fandom's her _safe place._
And you have to go and pick on her
and make fun of her writing?
Emma W
:(
GK
WTF.
Emma W
:(
I know
George?
:( :( :(

Emma W
Hey!
why did you send me a picture of your (very cute) dog?
GK
I didn’t know if you were angry
And I don’t have a niece.
Emma W
why would I be angry?
I thought YOU were angry.
GK
I was out of line.
Emma W
baby
*I* was out of line.
though it was very frustrating that you flounced out
without letting me reply
you’re supposed to help me out when I mess up!
GK
Oh, am I?
I heard you apologized very fast.
Emma W
WELL*I*
My personal Jiminy Cricket is the fast and the furious
:p
GK
I seriously have no idea why you bear with me.
Emma W
Well, you’re nearly always right.
I’m also betaing MissB’s new fic :)
GK
Well, I did steal Haz beta duties from you.
BTW, are you two not speaking or something?
Emma W
well
there was a misunderstanding. Nothing important.
Why?
GK
She wanted to write that ridiculous thing you prompted
but has dropped it.
Emma W
and from that you inferred she's mad at me?
riiight.
she told you.
she complained to you, didn’t she?
GK
A bit.
Apparently you hurt her feelings somehow?
Emma W
:/
She didn’t tell you why?
GK
No, I really didn’t want to be in the middle.
You don’t know?
Emma W
We’re kind of… competing I guess?
don’t worry about it. :D
GK
Okay.
Just talk to her, it will be fine.
She’s been acting a bit weirdly this week,
maybe she has problems at home or something.
Emma W
has she
I’ll talk to her, don’t worry. :)
When are you going on vacation then?
GK
Ah! I didn’t tell you!
I got three weeks in August.
I don’t have to work until the 26th.
Emma W
YAY!
I got ten days, 5th to the 18th if you add the weekends
We could maybe do that hike you told me about?
Box Hill?
GK
Oh
sorry
my brother and his partner are going to the French Riviera
and asked me to go with them.
Emma W
You’re going to France?
GK
Yes! I’ve never been.
Emma W
Will you see
Paris?
GK
No, no.
Just the mediterranean coast.
Emma W
Will you see Haz?
GK
Yup. She has asked to meet.
:)
Do you want me to deliver anything?
Emma W
no.
have fun.
:D
GK
I will.
Are you ok?
Emma W
just jealous.
I mean EUROPE.
GK
Hey, I’ll be nowhere near Paris.
Emma W
Just Marseille.
GK
Yes. :)
Emma W
send me a postcard
okay?
GK
Sure.
Emma W
I’m off, I got a headache.
<3
GK
Okay.
Tell me if you have them often or really bad.
Emma W
yup. bye!
GK
Good night!

GK
Hey
Emma W
George! :D
how’s your vacation going?
GK
Great
Emma W
how’s France?
tell me all about it. :)
GK
I got slightly tan
Went sailing
hmm
The town is very quaint, you’d like it
I don’t know
shit Emma I’m so sorry.
Emma W
what? why?
GK
Well
The Frank thing.
Emma W
oh!
lolol
no need to feel sorry, I’m fine
GK

Do you want me to call?
Emma W
no!
well if you want
but no
if you’re thinking I’ll cry and rant and whatever at you
I won’t!
I’m just
GK
yes?
Emma W
I’m just shocked!
I’m still trying to put it into words
because
WHO WOULD DO THAT???
I would NEVER have joked and flirted with him like that if I had known
wtf
WTF
POOR JIMENA
GK
Yeah, I feel sorry for her to be honest.
Emma W
how hasn’t she broken up with him?
like, seriously?
he spent months publicly flirting with me
WE HAD SHIPPERS
GK
I’m so sorry
Emma W
no but
no.
I kinda thought I might be in love with him at one point
but lol no
that was back in april
and then I honestly thought he was just like that?
since it never led to anything
he once hinted there was something he wasn’t telling me
and I thought he maybe was gay or ace or something
GK
So you’re okay?
More or less?
Emma W
100%, all systems go!
GK
Okay.
Emma W
you?
GK
I’m still furious, actually.
Emma W
I kind of understand the secrecy though
Weston does know his family
not that he would have TOLD THEM but
he’s pretty upset, though, you know how he's about
the bro code and all
Taylor said Frank apologized, anyway
looks like they’ll be alright
GK
Seriously?
He basically lies to all of his friends for months
because his fiancée happens to be Mexican and trans
and he depends on his conservative aunt for his money
why bother with student loans, right?
and then his aunt dies
his fiancée still wants him
you don’t mind he used you
his friends forgive him.
Emma W
:/ basically, yes
I do mind, but he didn’t hurt me, you know?
are you alright?
GK
I hate him.
News at eleven.
Emma W
well, you were right again
I’m the worst judge of character
GK
I just wish I was as lucky as him
that I could just tell the truth and be done with it
you know, come clean, just get what I want.
Emma W
oh
yes
you should.
GK
I should?
just come out and say it?
Emma?
Emma W
yes
yes
well not to me
but yes.
GK
Not to you?
Emma W
I mean
GK
Okay, then.
Just forget I said anything.
Emma W
no no no
I mean we’re friends!
you can totally tell me anything!
and I’ll give you my opinion
as always
because we’re friends
that’s what we do.
George?
I mean you don’t have to
just, whenever you want to talk about it
I’m here for you.
:)
GK
This is pretty terrifying.
I’ll just say it and if you’re uncomfortable or whatever
We can pretend I never said anything
And I’ll get over it once and for all
and it’ll be fine.
Okay?
Emma W
Okay.
GK
Remember when we met?
Emma W
yes?
you e-mailed me about the mailing list
and I was a brat to you
and you called me out on it.
GK
No.
When we met in Portland.
I was starting my residence and you wanted to show me the city
and I called you a baby.
Emma W
yes. :)
GK
And you were wearing a red hoodie and your hair kept falling on your face
and we sat in a coffee shop that closed last year and talked about everything I could think of
you had three pumpkin lattes
and told me about your dad
the light was kind of golden
you were barely eighteen
and I fell in love with you.
I felt like a creep but you wanted me to beta that fix-it thing with the alternate timeline
that never got finished.
Then we were friends and your dad kind of adopted me
and I thought I was pretty safe, I went out with people
you dated that dude with the mullet
and I kept lecturing you about things anyway so
I don’t know.
Emma W
George
GK
But this year
I couldn’t deal with Frank
he was everywhere
he was in our spaces
I thought you would leave me for NYC.
I really just want you to tell me to move on already.
Or maybe if you could see me that way.
I feel like I should tell you really romantic stuff right now but I honestly can’t put it into words
maybe if I loved you less
Emma W
:D
GK
:D?
Emma W
Yes.
GK
Yes?
Emma W
Yes.
OMG WHY ARE YOU IN FRANCE
GK
Wait, yes WHAT?
Emma W
Yes I love you
come back to Portland now
GK
Really?
Emma W
<3 Yes
yes yes yes yes
I’m sorry I was so stupid about it
but I really do
I love you
I’m booking you a ticket for tomorrow
GK
You could come here.
In fact you should come here, let me check the airlines
Emma W
but my dad!
GK
Come here
Emma
Darling
There’s a flight in four hours from PDX to Paris
I’ll meet you there
Emma W
Paris!
GK
:D
Emma W
maybe
I don’t know
this certainly counts as a major crisis
my dad will pack his own bags if I tell him
that we’re in love
and I need to rescue you from the French
right?
GK
Well, he likes me better than any of your dates.
Emma W
Yes. :D
call me darling again
GK
Darling Emma
Come explore Paris with me
Emma W
oh baby
I doubt we’ll get out of the room
GK
I’ll book one with a view
Emma W
:D :D :D
GK
:D <3
