    Summary

    Emily and Sue have been best friends since they were kids. Having grown up together and being inseparable throughout the years, their relationship takes a turn from a friendship to something more. The problem? It's 1852 and being together as a couple would be seen as something taboo. The other problem? Sue is linked to Austin and Emily had recently just linked up with George. They vowed to do better-to stop this relationship between them before they get caught, but it's easier said than done.

    *REPOSTING.

    Summary

    *MAJOR A/U*

    Sue Gilbert lived a pretty hard life in her twenty-six years so far. Her dad died when she was ten, her mother when she was twenty-four, and she and her sister barely spoke anymore. Things got hard for the Gilbert girls after their dad died. Their mom struggled to get by alone and ended up marrying an abusive man when she was thirteen. This marriage caused a strain between Sue, her sister and their mother--so much so that Sue moved out at eighteen for college and never came back again. Sue was in a long-term relationship with a man named Joshua but had been unhappy for the past year but was finding it hard to leave. She's been dealt her cards and so far it's really been a life full of trauma and she truly felt she was going to have a break down.
    Emily Dickinson has been around for all of it... every high and every low. The girls met when they were seven years old in school and made a promise that they would be friends forever. And they've kept that promise. Emily has been there for Sue through everything. When things start to get rocky with Sue and her partner, the girls find themselves getting closer. (extended summary in first chapter--couldn't fit it all)

    West Coast, modern take on Emily and Sue.

    Emily is a Pulitzer Prize winning poet that is under pressure to deliver (and top) her first book. She has decided to move to the secluded island of Orca's Island in Washington State from New York City, in order to write her poetry in peace and solitude. She prefers is that way, and she hopes the PNW will give her some much needed inspiration.

    Sue is living in San Francisco, working as a financial consultant. She is recently divorced from her husband of 3 years, Sam Bowles. She has never really forgotten about Emily, but life has always gotten in the way.

    Both of the women are in their late 20s, and they are living separate lives. Their romance during college a far away memory that feels like it's from a completely different time. But - fate has other plans. Emily and Sue's worlds come crashing together in unexpected ways, while Emily is on a business trip to San Francisco to meet her publisher.

    Both have had serious relationships and tried to move on from the memory of each other, but things always have a way of surfacing.....

    Summary

    Emily can't let go.

     

    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Emily’s eyes focused on their intervened hands. It feels so natural to her, always had. Like one puzzle piece had found the fitting piece. “But you did, just took my hand and you wiped away my tears and you said ‘everything will be alright Emily, he is at a better place now’. It was such a cliché thing to say, but I believed you.” She admits.

    “It seemed fitting at the time.” Sue looks at her with an unreadable expression.

     

    “You know, i believed it, because I knew you were there with me, Sue. I knew that the pain would fade away and you would be by my side and everything would be okay.”

     

    ---------------------------------

    Not going to lie this is very depressing, so be warned guys.

     

    Or. where Emily says goodbye

    Summary

    Set in New York, Emily is an up-and-coming 22 year old singer who is gaining popularity with each passing day, especially as it was just announced last week that she will be the opening act for Sabrina Carpenter on her upcoming tour. Sue was born and raised near Los Angeles, California, and just moved to New York for a job opportunity and for a change of scenery. What will happen when these two women, who are on two completely different paths in their life, meet? Will they be able to build a relationship or will their differences be too much to overcome? (Disclaimer: I will likely be using songs from several different artists and portraying them as Emily’s songs).

    Summary

    This story is a modern take on the story and essence of Emily Dickinson. A thought experiment that if The Great American Poet were to exist in modern day, how would she write and what would she write about.

    Inspired and based on the writing and character portrayals from the Apple Tv+ show "Dickinson".

    All poetry written in this story is by Yours Truly.

    Summary

    That's not to say she didn't have a plan to see her again. Of course she does. Maybe a coincidental meeting on a park somewhere in the city. Maybe a not so coincidental meeting at that coffee shop Sue frequents quite often. 

    or: Emily and Sue were best friends, and now they're not. Emily tries to pick up the pieces.
