This idea is totally non-original, I know. It seems like everyone is doing the whole 'letters between partners' thing. But I feel Sweets has kind of been forgotten in all this travel-excitement, and I thought I'd let him in on the fun. So far my plan is mostly to have letters between him and Daisy, but every now and then I will let another character send him some love. He needs it. Hopefully I keep people in character. If you'd like to see a certain character write to him, then let me know and I will do my best. :)

Hi, Lance.

I just wanted to let you know that I've arrived safely. Well, we've arrived safely, me and Dr. Brennan. The flight was very long and uneventful but I did have a nice talk with Dr. Brennan about some of the things we'd be doing, so it was enjoyable. I caught an hour or two of sleep, but most of the time I just spent the time thinking. I know what you said when we were at the airport, and I can't say I blame you for not wanting to wait for me. I wish you would, because I still love you, but I guess it's for the best. I realize how I must have sounded when we were talking. I'm sorry if I made you feel insignificant. You're very important to me. But I was just so excited for this trip, and it's such a great oppurtunity I just couldn't pass it up. I mean, digging in the Maluku Islands with Dr. Brennan? It's like a dream come true. But I also realize your dream has been crushed. God, I sounded like such a jerk, didn't I? You'd just asked me to marry you and I'd agreed and then I left you. I'm so sorry. I don't expect you to forgive me, so please don't feel guilty if you don't. I understand.

I wish you were here. The Maluku Islands are immensely beautiful. The weather is nice, it's very sunny out. The trip from the airport to our camp was an exciting ride. One of our group leaders drove us over in a van. It was great to be able to speak to someone who's been doing this kind of thing for a long time. Just hearing stories of their adventures got my adrenaline pumping. The scenery is fantastic, and our driver told us all these great things that we had planned. There are so many interesting people here, it's amazing. You would love it. But I respect your choice to stay home. I'm sorry I wanted you to drop everything you've accomplished to come be a pearl diver. Again, I was oblivious to your perspective by my excitement. I wish I'd taken this more into consideration, but I'm glad I'm here. I miss you and DC like crazy, but it's nice to get away and see the world. It's so gigantic. I'd love to take you back here one day, if that's okay. I think you'd like it.

I hope you are doing well. I know how hard it must be for you, with everyone gone. Well, you've still got Dr. Saroyan. You two should keep eachother company. If I find out nobody's been taking care of my Lancelot, I might have to hurt someone. Ha! But please send my regards to Dr. Saroyan. I hope she is doing just as well as you are. I miss you so, so much. It's wonderful here, but the experience would be a thousand times greater if we could share it together. I attached some photos in case you're interested. There is so much more I want to say, but I'm running out of time.

I apologize if this letter is inappropriate. And I'm sorry for calling you Lancelot, it just slipped. Since I'm writing this in pen, I couldn't erase it and I didn't want to cross it out because that would make this letter seem sloppy and you know I hate sloppy. I would have e-mailed you, but something was wrong with the computer and I had to mail you the old fashion way. I like hand-writing letters, though. I think it's romantic. I'd love to hear back from you. I'd like to be kept up with what's happening with you in DC. Please take care of yourself.



P.S. You might have noticed I also sent your ring back. I don't know what I was thinking, bringing it here. It's your ring, it belongs with you. I'm sorry for ever taking it. It's beautiful, and it should not be here with me in the dirt. Thank you for giving me the chance to marvel at it. I only hope one day it'll be put to good use.
