    Summary

    Five years…One thousand eight hundred and twenty six days since she last stood on this spot. It felt like a lifetime ago. As she stood on the lawn, shaded under a tree and looking over at the sprawling building, she couldn’t help but let her mind and eyes wander. The grey stone and battlements gave the impression of an old castle, rather than the school it was. She supposed that some people may find such an appearance imposing but to her, it felt like coming home. She felt a smile tug at the corner of her lips as she let her eyes wander over the structure, memories of a time long passed flashing through her mind.

    Summary

    Sterling found herself drawn to the anonymity of the letter writing. No one made her sign her own name, so she didn’t. Just like that. She wasn’t Blair’s sister or Luke’s girlfriend or the girl with the second highest grades in the fifth grade, she was just a person writing a letter. She signed it TS on a whim, because, well, she was still deeply in a Taylor Swift phase and ever since April had just - well, she just didn’t have anyone to talk to about it anymore. So she wrote letters to some random girl miles away, bent over a big wooden table with a curated variety of gel pens. It was fun, freeing, and something that was solely hers.

    And then, even better, she got them back. 
    ___

    Or, there's no way in hell that the two girls with the years long anonymous friendship who wrote letters to each other at camp and now frequently email could be the same two girls who are sworn enemies at school, right?

    Created with awe and reverence for You've Got Mail (1998).

    Summary

    Now, though, now April is turning eighteen. An actual adult. And her dad is officially out of her and her mom’s life, while Sterling is sitting on her bed, staring at April like she just hung the moon.

    So maybe this birthday will be better.

    Sterling is determined to give April a wonderful birthday. Lots of fluff.

    Summary

    April knows she is a lesbian, she's even okay with it despite her bigoted community. But that doesn't mean she can come out.

    An in-depth in-canon character analysis of April Stevens, the Christian gay girl so many of us remember being. She crushes hard on girls and only girls. But nobody can know her secret. That is, until Sterling Wesley comes breezing back into her life with a kiss and so many dreams of a life together open and out.

    Summary

    SPOILERS FOR TEENAGE BOUNTY HUNTERS. Post S1 EP 10 AU “Something Sour Patch”.

    April wonders if she’s being punished by God because he sure has a sense of humor. Or maybe Ellen just really really realllly wants April and Sterling to be friends again. Because it seems that she will be sharing a tent with her sort of ex, Sterling.

    It’s been a month since the lock-in, a month of radio silence between April and Sterling. When Coach Esposito and Ellen decide that the debate team needs to go camping during a three day weekend for “team bonding”, April wants nothing better than to hide out in her house with Sergeant Bilko. But Stevens don’t run from their problems. They aggressively and forcefully crush any competition. Uh, maybe that might be why her dad was in jail.

    It doesn’t help matters that Sterling hasn’t been acting like her usually bubbly self since the lock in and what’s with her dad, asking about Blair and Sterling? It doesn’t matter. One way or another, April’s going to make the most of this trip and she might enjoy spending time with Sterling. . . Might.
