Julie Kagawa's contest : letter to my favorite Faery
Julie Kagawa, l'auteur de la saga The Iron Fey, a mis en place un concours juste excellent: écrire une lettre à un des personnages de la série, comme si c'était un ami, lui dire ou lui poser les questions que l'on souhaite, et si l'on gagne le personnage nous répondra personnellement (et sa lettre sera accompagnée d'un Iron Queen dédicacé).

Voici ma participation, que l'on doit poster sur un blog :
Dear Julie, here is my entrance for your contest : my letter to Ash
Why Ash ? Because I fell in love with him at his first line in Iron King. Even hidden behind a tree, on his horse, I've been cursed. He casted a spell on me and it becomes greater and greater at each book.
* Small spoiler do not read if you didn't finish Iron Queen *
Hey Ice Prince !
Already upset with the nick name because it reminds you of an old friend ? OK so let's try again.
Dear HBWS (ask Julie if any remark or question with this one),
Sometimes I would like so badly having the possibilty to visit you. Faery Land, a dream, an other reality. My country has a lot of snow, maybe it's because there is a path to the Winter Court very close ? Could you check for me please ?
Oh speaking of the Nevernever, I hope my e-letter won't do too much damages to your world ! Imagine if I make disappear the tree where Puck is actually sleeping on a branch.. wooops ! (I see you grinning!)
Ash, I take this great opportunity to tell you what my heart is feeling for each word you say. No no don't stop reading, I know you're a hot ice guy and probably hate speaking of these things, but you do have to hear it once for all, really.
Do you know how much every one of your sentences makes my heart beat, or even stop ? Yeah for a Winter Fey who thinks he is only ice and coldess, how this can happen ? You are one of the leaders for the quotes-who-kill-me, I'm sure you don't even guess that. Everything you do is simply being who you are, true and completely devoted to Meghan, and it's surely what makes your words even stronger.
When I hear you saying "you are my heart, my life, my entire existence", if you knew the effect these simple words have on me, you would maybe think twice before whispering that kind of deadly-sentence.
But it's so good to see you feeling that way !! It made my heart smile in a new way. Do you realize how much you changed through your adventure ? You totally let us discover you in the Iron Queen. You really showed us your true feelings, didn't hide them anymore, as you did in the past. You were vulnerable for the first time and it was so intense that I have no words to describe how you made me feel. Ok I stop here this part because Julie will have to change her writting if you become too cocky !
By the way, despite your romantic side when it comes to Meghan, I love the way you show only the icy part of you with other people. Speaking of this, do you once have transformed Grim or Puck into an ice statue when they become too annoying, as Queen Mab like to do ? I can keep the secret if yes, I swear on my True name.
So, my dear Ash, how are you these days ? I miss you so much, I'm used to have you with me every single day since the first until the last pages of the book, and now I feel totally empty : no more Ash in my hand-bag, no more Ash in the bath, no more Ash when lying in the sun reading, no more Ash hidden under the desk at the office (don't tell my boss). Too sad, almost unbearable, I'm aching... I really miss you, I know that where you are now is a secret, even if I guess you're with Puck in your new adventure. I'm so happy to know that I will finally read your thoughts in this fourth book, but waiting for it just kills me. I'm dying to hear from you anyway, so in the meantime could you tell me a little bit about you ? I mean, what's your secret dream for exemple, and how do you wish your future to be ? (like Meg, I still can't picture you with a white apron, cooking..).
Oh Ash, I'm sure you heart's still bleeding. If I may help don't hesitate to ask. Friends are here for that, and I guess between Grim and Puck, maybe you would need another shoulder to talk to. I know you are far away from your true love and that you suffer more than you would tell, but I'm here to make you smile or simply hearing you, if you want. Just write, it's simple and I can assure you it helps.
I send you all my love and can't wait to have news from you, in any ways.
