it's Emma writing to you. Well, sometimes one gets mail from their character :)
Man, I'm sooo happy. So much so that not even that graffiti on my locker can throw me off balance. And that's also the reason for me writing you - to congratulate us both very much to our Coming-Out. I'm not even able to turn this constant smiling off anymore. Ey, think a few weeks back, I never would have thought of doing something like this. I, I simply would have been too scared. But since Jenny... - oh wow, how embarrassing my heart starts palpitating only thinking about her. Anyway, what I meant to say was, since Jenny is here, everything somhow changed. It's like a complete new world I'm seeing. It's like she opened my eyes and she gives me space to.., yes, to just come out of my shell and be a completely new Emma. And I like this new spirit she inspired in me. And the Coming-Out was like taking one step further, out of our little secret world into the really really big one, no matter what awaits us there. Doing this was definitely so liberating and I mean to thank you for going through this with me since you took on my role since October. I mean, when I think back - driving license, stage fright and that whole back and forth with Jenny, which took much too long, since I didn't even know how to handle myself anymore and anyway I had no perspective let alone the guts to... - oh man, I must have been such a handful for you. I'm so sorry for that. But you always managed to get my feelings across in a completely unique and convincing way and I want to thank you for that. You're great and I really love you. And I'm looking forward to everything that we will live to see together with Jenny from now on. No matter what will come. And I'm trusting you to pass those tests in flying colors as well. So, again, feel embraced by me and I'm really really happy that you're portraying me.
Lots of love,
yours Emma <3 <3 <3

it's Jenny writing to you. When Emma was high on her feelings from Coming Out (I was barely able to stop her from painting her room in rainbow colors), she had the idea to write you and Kasia a thank-you letter. Since she spotted such a sweet and enthused smile I wasn't able to say no, of course - you know how that is. Also I found the idea good and cute. So here I am writing to you to tell you that you're doing a great job in portraying me. I'm feeling really comfortable with you and also really appreciate that you managed to not let anyone know about what happened back in London. I mean, not everyone has to know about that, not that I would mind what anyone else might think if they knew. Also now we have Emma and Emma is making everything better and brighter anyway. I'm feeling really good being with her and, yeah, I'm completely in love with her and...actually I never would have thought or expected this...after everything that happened. But like I said, I love Emma and when I'm with her I'm always feeling like a completely new me. Everything that happened I can forget when I'm with her. But, you know, then there are these moments in which we are so close to each other and I'm feeling that my past and why I'm in cologne in the first place is standing between us. And then I'm wondering...actually we could entrust her with it, right? I mean, I hope she won't see me in a different light afterward...But I don't really think she will. Will she?
Come on, would you say something to this, too!
Ugh, letters are stupid. Who does still write letters in the 21st century (beside Emma...)?! You don't get anything back in that moment and that's fucked up if you currently need help! Well, anyway...that wasn't the reason to write to you at all. I didn't mean to cry my eyes out here. This was terrible. Really german. Anyway, what I really wanted to tell you is, Thank you! Thanks that you're playing my role. I'm really really really pleased with you.
Keep up the good work,
Ps: Sorry for this cry-story. Actually I'm really happy.
You're feeling inspired now? Great!
Go ahead, buy a card, do a drawing, write a text and send it to Kasia or Lucy.
Don't forget to make a picture of it and send it to us.
And if you're like Jenny and think letters are stupid and that the new way to communicate in the 21st century is via the internet than go ahead and check out the virtual flashmob video we're planning to do. Record a video of you dancing, singing, jumping, fainting, wearing something from the Katie Fucking Fitch 2037 Collection or anything else Jemma-related and send it to us. But pay attention that it's not longer than 15seconds.
Oh, and before we forget, just by the way: Yes, we'll do the Live Chat Translation again on Tuesday!
Have a great day,
Your Team Jemma
