    My Dearest Elizabeth, I have indeed landed on my own dark continent, though I think you would find it uncommon hot and bright.

My reputation for debauchery I credit you with, since I was for all who knew me a wide-eyed innocent when first you marked me. And such I shall let my reputation stand here, for you know that the prettiest daughters are hidden away from reckless dandies, and flaunted nearly into the laps of seeming respectable gentlemen of a certain station. And you also know what adventures I can bestow upon any pretty daughter that finds her way into my lap. Why must you torment me with memories of my long and almost fruitless voyage? I kept nearly as chaste as a Franciscan, though not for lack of effort. You tease when you remind me of the captain’s daughter, because you remember as well as I do, the captain’s son. I saw the blood rise to your cheeks when he boarded, even then casting jealous eyes at crew and passengers alike. He kept his sister Amelia under such close watchfulness that I was unable to make any advance into her…

    If you've been online for as long as I have, you might remember the days when you noticed the occasional person with an animated GIF Twitter profile picture. Twitter then went and made the GIF against Twitter's policy laws and users could no longer have them, even if they managed to come up with a workaround to get them working. Noways, you just don't see them at all with Twitter either clamping down hard on the rule, or more people realizing that they were against the user policy. Rumor has it…

Looking at my sister, I saw how much she could help the world. “Are you guys ready to go?” Tobias walked up with his usual swagger. “I’m not going with you guys.” I began to lie about why I would not come with them. Tris engulfed me in a hug. While waving goodbye, I watched them walk off; I turned around and began walking toward the tall glass building that…
