    Summary

    In Korea, little Lee Donghun’s head is filled with colourful stories and make-believe. All he wants is to keep his head down in school and come home to his comics – but from day one, bullies have made him their target, and he finds himself friendless.

    Nine thousand miles across the world, a Korean family has just moved to Italy. Their son Junhee has always been happy and popular – but it’s hard to attend an international school in a language that isn’t his own.

    When the boys are enrolled in a pen-pal programme by their teachers, neither knows what to expect. As they swap letters, their long-distance friendship blossoms into something beautiful as they grow from little boys into young men. But growing up isn’t easy, and both have to navigate hardships as they stumble into adulthood. Will they ever be able to finally meet in person? And if they do – what exactly is their relationship, and where do they go from there?

    Summary

    -Svetlana paid me to come-

    The words scorch down Mickey's throat and twist his stomach like acid, but they only hurt half as much as Ian’s muttered lie about 'waiting'.

    -Fuck you, Gallagher-

    Mickey didn’t plan to write Ian a letter but it happens anyway, an angry scribbled mess of all the ways he hadn’t known Ian fucking Gallagher would break his heart. He shoves it in the prison mailbox, breaks the pen to pieces, and walks away without a second glance.

    -Fuck you, Gallagher-

    Mickey didn’t plan to write a letter--but he can't help feeling hopeful when Ian writes him back.

    Sometimes truth is easier written than spoken, things that can’t be said through a dividing glass easier to whisper into smuggled cellphones and read in furtive texts when guards aren’t looking.

    Sometimes free means admitting to hurt and betrayal while wishing for love, and sometimes free means breaking from behind bars to say those things face to face.

    This is Mickey and Ian’s story: Scattered letters and secret calls, angry conversations and whispered confessions, and the journey to find themselves, each other, and somehow finally...

    ... freedom.

    Summary

    "Oh? Now what's this?" Daddy held up an envelope, squinting at the address like he was an old man reading a book. "Why, it looks like a letter addressed to one 'Jamesy B. Barnes'!" Daddy smiled, holding up the letter.

    Jamesy was over like a bullet, ripping the envelop open the second Daddy handed it to him.

    Summary

    The SanRen program is simple (in theory): a pen-pal, two exchange trips, and the (probably excessively) ambitious goal of fostering good relations between all provinces.

    For some, it’s the greatest educational policy the government has introduced in the last fifty years.

    For others, it’s nothing but a huge waste of both time and money.

    For Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji, it’s simply how they meet, in this lifetime.

    -

    A love life story told in snippets.

    (Also known as: the therapeutic humor-and-fluff fic where nothing bad happens to Wei Wuxian any of my faves ever.)

    Summary

    It's labelled at the top in neat, handwritten scrawl. 'DEAR YVETTE,' in big, bold letters, and underneath is an explanation: 'UK BASED PEN-PAL ORGANIZATION'. A very 1800's-looking illustration of a woman practicing her penmanship is stamped just underneath.

    There is no way they want him to do this. Is there?

    "What is this," Martin looks up and asks, flatly.

    Sasha doesn't look all that phased or upset, but she trips over her words a bit like she is. "It's a — well, a pen-pal... thing! I ripped it off of the wall at the pub." Sasha rips everything off of the wall at the pub.

    "And you want me to sign up for it." Martin squints, skeptically, and then adds as an afterthought, "there is no way you got this off of the wall at Harp & Crest."

    Tim and Sasha think that Martin ought to do something about this whole loneliness business.
