    Summary

    Dean Winchester is a twenty-one year-old omega with a keen intellect but no prospects, soon to be ejected from the orphanage he’s learnt to tolerate. Castiel Novak-Edlund, an alpha four years his senior, is a philanthropist with more money than he knows what to do with.

    Dean is like any other beneficiary: Castiel will finance his education at a prestigious college, asking for nothing in return but monthly letters keeping him apprised of his social and intellectual progress. He won’t ever respond; he’s not looking to make friends with somebody who’s relying on him financially. But with each letter to his benefactor—whom he dubs ‘Mr. Guardian Angel’—Dean reveals himself to be uniquely witty and incisive, and Castiel can’t help but become invested.

    All his best laid plans fall apart when they meet in person through his cousin Anael and fondness starts to evolve into something far more frightening. Castiel becomes Dean’s friend without ever telling him that he’s the man he’s been writing to, and worse, he finds himself falling in love. If he ever wants a happy ending, he’ll have to relinquish control and come out of hiding—but he’s not the only one with secrets.

    Summary

    Judy Abbott's letters to Jervis Pendleton -- of course, she doesn't know that part -- are passionate, assertive, opinionated, and unmistakable. They're often the high point of Jervis's day. Perhaps too much so.

    Roman Prince, a 17 year-old orphan, is given the opportunity of a lifetime when offered the chance to attend college with only a few conditions- he must write a letter to his sponsor once a month, though he will never under any circumstances receive a response back. Also, he will never know the true identity of his sponsor, the strange figure who he comes to call Stormcloud... but will Stormcloud stick to his decision to remain anonymous? Will Roman discover his identity regardless?

    AU Based off the Book/Musical "Daddy Long Legs," which I saw recently and have become completely obsessed with overnight!

    Summary

    Sarah McBride Anderson is best known for her work as a suffragette and later as the Representative of Massachusetts' 5th Congressional District, where she served from 1925-1937 (the first woman to represent Massachusetts, and the seventh woman in the US House of Representatives). Less well known is her lifelong friendship with J.A. Pendleton, the celebrated novelist and Pulitzer Prize winner. The two women met at college, where they roomed together. Although the correspondence between the two women after their college years has been published, these letters (excerpted from Anderson's letters home to her family during their college years) have not, and provide a fascinating glimpse into their friendship.

    Summary

    What happens when some of our favorite (and least favorite) heroines are forced to live together? Judy Abbott, Caroline Bingley, and Margaret Hale are roommates at a prestigious women's college in this modern, epistolary mash-up of several classics. Join them in their adventures through the all the ups and downs of college – and all the friendships, romance, and heartbreaks that come with it.

    This story began as a slow-burn retelling of Daddy-Long-Legs, Pride & Prejudice, and North & South, but then Emma Woodhouse showed up and demanded to be included. Perhaps some other novels will force their way into the story as well!

    Summary

    "Stannis Baratheon couldn't help it. He just couldn't. For the first time in longer than he could remember, a bubble of laughter burst unwillingly from his smirking lips. His smile only widened when he saw how very, very disturbed his fellow trustees of the Daemon Blackfyre Home for Orphans and Foundlings were..."

    An impertinent essay satirizing the trustees of the Daemon Blackfyre Home should have spelled the end for Sansa Stark, its eldest inmate. Instead a mysterious benefactor on the board funds Sansa's way through college on three conditions: 1) That she becomes a writer. 2) That she writes letters to her benefactor once a month. 3) That she is to never expect a reply, or to know his identity...

    Based on a tumblr prompt from iheartdramas to do a Stansa AU based on Jean Webster's 1912 epistolary novel Daddy-Long-Legs. Originally this was meant to be a two-shot, but hopefully it should be done in three... This is set in my usual careless mash-up of Westeros and Earth, anachronisms will abound - so apologies in advance for that.

    What belongs to George R R Martin belongs to him, what belongs to Jean Webster is hers and I am just playing with their toys (and many of them at that)!
