Fanfiction in letter form

Post  Bird-Sama on Sun Sep 19, 2010 9:11 am

Is anyone feeling like writing some fanfiction in letter form? Perhaps about an historical event or about a special relationsship or a controversial question between the nations or OCs? Very Happy
Perhaps you can find a layout, that suits to the character or the topic.

two examples:

1.keine Heldentaten:


english translation:
Spoiler:

Berlin, 9. November 1918
Gilbert.
I hope I’ll manage to get this delivered to you.
A few days ago I finally convinced France to enter into armistice negotiations. The day before yesterday he agreed finally.
Our streets descend into chaos, but we should be used to it till now.
You also had the pleasure once, to feel how the disputability of my people, but don’t worry we’ll make it somehow.
Today two of my men independently from each other changed my name. Now I can chose between being a socialistic and a democratic republic.
Our emperor, your king, escaped to Hollands house. Emperors, kings, the people who are responsible for this war, now they are worth as much as others. Now my people decide by themselves and the don’t want any war.
I know, France will to take revenge, but our ressources are nearly at their end. We can’t go on like this anymore. You know it as well as I know.
Life won’t be easy for as us in the next years, but I’m sure and hoping, that I can count on you and the other coutries, who are living under my roof.

I hope I’ll see you abain, as soon and as undamaged as possible, my brother.
Take care of yourself and make sure you have food and a warm blanket and don’t try to perform any heroic deeds.
I miss you.

Ludwig

PS: Seriously, I mean it. No heroic deeds.
annotations:
Spoiler:
This is a letter from Ludwig/Germany to Gilbert/Prussia, who is fighting at the western front, on the occasion of the Proclamation of the first german republik during the last days of the first World War.
this opinion, to end the war because there was no chance to win and the ressources dwindled, historically was not the only one. the political situation and opinions were very heterogenous at that time. there were communist and socialdemocratic parties but also a lot of conservatives, monarchists, militarists, humanistists and nationalists.
the political circumstances in Germany evoked by the revolution of the first german republic and the big ideological differencescan be seen as one of many causes for the catastrophe in the years from '33-45.

2.ma chère Lorraine:

original text and english translation:
Spoiler:
Original text(Saarlandish/Moselle Franconian and a bit French):
Sarrebruck, 23. Oct. 1955

Saarbrücken, 23. october, 1955

My precious Lorraine!
Pardon me, my beautiful sister!
I know what you want to say about it. I know, but I’m just a little girl. I’m too small to be an own country.
And I can’t trust the UN at all, not to mention the French or old Lutz.
And I can’t imagin to be in a house together with Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden, Belgium and Luxembourg but without you and Alsace.
You know I like you very much.
If I could live together ONLY with you…But I’d be very unhappy if i’d live in France’s house.
He’s too lecherously for me, your little, little, little sister.
You know I love you to the moon and back, but I [want] to live at Lutz’s house again.

Pardone me!

Saarland.

PS: Lutz gave me a present again for coming back.
PPS: Do you want to cook together with me next Sunday? Your food ist he best of the whole world.
PPPS:I love you. ♥️

It’s a letter from the german federalstate Saarland to the french departement Lorraine.
Saarland writes in an Moselle Franconian Dialect, which is spoken in Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Luxembourg, Alsace and Lorraine, to be a polite girl she also tries to write a few french sentences.
It’s about the "Saar-Abstimmung" 1955, when 67,7% of the saarlandish people voted "yes" for being part oft he BRD. At this time Saarland was not part of Germany, the official accession was two years later. This event is called kleine Wiedervereinigung/small unification.

try it. Very Happy
the paper is from a free texture pack from deviantart,http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/?q=paper#/d1aee3m.
I also used free brushes from deviantart for the coffee staints and the fingerprints.
the first letter is with a font of the typewriter 'Adler', the second is digital handwritten by myself. ^^

I definitly will! Hmm... I might be able to use this sort of thing for studying... It would be so much more entertaining than flashcards.

Thanks for the info onthe paper and font! You have nice handwriting, btw.

using different methods to study is a good thing, I learned latin with singing the declensional tables. ^^"

thanks. actually this is not my real handwriting. It's how I thought thirteen/fourteen year old girl perhaps would write a letter, my 'real' writing style is like hieroglyphs. |||Or2
