Ty and Stanislav met by pure chance, in the middle of the night, at a party on a tropical island. Ty spots her dream man across the dancefloor and Stanislav, enticed by her carefree dancing, offers her a sweet treat. As the sun rises over the ocean, so do the couples' feelings that this could be more than a holiday fling. An illustrator creates a piece of original artwork for each episode of Equal Parts.

When you get this, you'll know what I'm talking about: Kim, a future best-selling author* in the Philippines, writes to herself days after a holiday romance in Vietnam came to its natural conclusion. In one of the season’s most visual, dream-like letters, Kim immortalizes moped rides in the rain, and all-encompassing joy tinged with sadness. While she knew the relationship had an expiry date, Kim is trying at once to hold onto happy memories and embrace her next solo chapter. For this season finale, Kim opens up to Maria, Sophie, and Steph about living in the moment, her personal goals, and avoiding self-sabotage. The hosts also share their own letters written way back at the start of the season, and reflect on their recent-past selves.*our prediction, just listen to that filmic letter!Has this season inspired you to write to yourself?

JJ & Janelle connected through their love of the beautiful game. Too shy to strike up initial conversation, a surprise football match on TV breaks the ice. Inviting Janelle to join his fantasy football league, JJ finds a way to keep the spark alive despite the space between them. Eventually, Janelle fans the flames with a playful snapchat, but it's not until the last minute of extra time that they secure promotion for their relationship.For every episode of Equal Parts, an illustrator creates an impression of the story. Niamh Lehane painted a watercolour for JJ & Janelle's story.

Good luck, future me. I hope you feel more certain: Noah, a high school senior in Illinois, is writing to organise his thoughts. Considering ideas of gender and where his identity might fit on the spectrum, Noah’s letter is full of questions for his future self. Now, as that slightly older person, Noah shares how the answers weren’t as important as the process of asking the questions in the first place. He talks about applying for colleges, disregarding labels, finding community online, and realizes that where he feels comfortable to express himself has slowly shifted since he wrote this letter. What do you want to ask your future self?
