Mini Challenge #2: The name of the second mini challenge is Book Valentines! For this challenge we were asked to write a love letter to our book boyfriend(s)/girlfriend(s).
I really struggled with this challenge. How do I put in to words what the Darkling makes me feel? How can anything I have to say to him be worthy of his attentions? After staring at the blinking cursor for an inappropriate amount of time, I was struck by what I might modestly call a brilliant idea! Why struggle to put in to words, what the Darkling has already done for me? Here’s some of my favourite Darkling moments/quotes, re-worked into a letter from me to him.
I have this awful habit of acting like a fool for you, and calling it heroic. The thing is, you bring out the truth of me. You lay it bare in the blazing sun, shorn of mystery and shadow.
And I think I do the same to you.
Like calls to like, remember?
There are no others like us, and there never will be. We are the same, as no one else will be. I’ve seen what you truly are, and I’ve never turned away. I never will. Is there another who can say the same?
I’ve bided my time, waiting for you. For only you. You and I are going to change the world.
You say that the problem with wanting is that it makes us weak. I say that the problem with wanting is that it leads me to you.
And always will.
