    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

    “You’re impossible,” April says, just a hair softer than before, but enough for Sterling to notice.

    Then she’s turning around and jogging away, and Sterling notices the way her t-shirt rides up her lower back, the winter sunlight striking the inch of exposed skin rebelliously peeking through. Sterling swallows, watching the way the muscles in April's thighs tense and release with each purposeful step, and almost falls over again.

    “Blair,” she hisses, once they’re finally released from gym class, “something crazy just happened, for the first time in months, since everything, I was… horny again.”

    If Sterling’s not mistaken, something like a tear forms in Blair’s eye, before she’s crushing Sterling in a hug.

    “I’ve never been more proud of you.”

    Summary

    April turns her attention back to the debate to distract herself from the way the sound of Sterling's laugh sets her blood on fire. 

    “Do you think any of these imbeciles even know how to craft a comprehensive piece of legislation?”

    Sterling rolls her eyes. “Call me when you’re elected to congress, then.”

    “Don’t worry, I will.”

    “Ooh, can’t wait.”

    April knows that Sterling is being sarcastic, but there’s a shine in her eyes and her mouth is still frustratingly smiling and God, April wants.
    ___

    The long, arduous, and unexpected journey of how April Stevens fell in love with political organizing. And also Sterling Wesley.

    Summary

    part of you was hoping that april would be at the tournament.
    but she's not -- either her new school doesn’t have debate, or maybe she just stopped doing it, or maybe, maybe she wasn’t good enough to make it.
    she’s mad at you, almost irreparably so, you’re sure, but you would have allowed her to hit you, beat you up, scream at you in front of the entire school.

    at least that would be something.
