I met [livejournal.com profile] musicdorch via queermail a little more than 4 years ago.

On Saturday, we got married.

We couldn't be more grateful to this community and its creator for bringing us together in what has been the craziest, most unlikely, most wonderful adventure of our lives.

We don't have any professional pictures yet, but here's one our photog snapped with her cell phone and posted on Instagram.

Name: Alexis

Age: 20

Birthday: March 5th

Gender: Female

Orientation: Pansexual

Location: Pennsylvania

Languages Spoken: English. Not enough Spanish or French to hold a conversation.

Religion: I don't really think there's a word for it, but I'm open to talking about it in a letter or something, if you want.

Relationship status: Single

About me: I'm a 20 year old pansexual, bi-racial, paraplegic. I only vaguely know what I want to do with my life, but I figure there's time? Or at least that's what I tell myself. I read a lot (my personal best is 2 books in 5 hours) and I'm currently writing a book. I may be addicted to tumblr and I have a tendency to fall in love with fictional characters as easy as I breathe. It's terrible, really.

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, tumblr, music, laughing, singing, cupcakes, food, being lazy (does that count? it should totally count), sleeping, paint-by-numbers, spoken word, swearing, sarcasm, dancers on YouTube.

Music: Adele, Beyoncé, Bring Me The Horizon, Demi Lovato, Drake, Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes, Jay Z, Lights, Lil Wayne, Mayday Parade, Nicki Minaj, *Nsync, Panic At the Disco, The Piano Guys, Tchaikovsky, The Temptations, Travie McCoy, Tyga, Vitamin String Quartet, 2Cellos (+ more).

Books: [My Ultimate Favorites, in no order] Go Ask Alice, Speak, Thirteen Reasons Why, Because I Am Furniture, The Diary of A Young Girl, Identical, B (although, this is more a spoken word piece turned book. still, it's good stuff), How They Met, and Other Stories, The Lovers Dictionary: A Novel, Promise Not to Tell, Island of Lost Girls, Lolita, A Child Called "It", Bridge to Terabithia, Keeping You a Secret, My Sister's Keeper, Nineteen Minutes, Vanishing Acts, The Pact: A Love Story, Plain Truth (pretty much everything from Jodi Picoult, seriously. She is amazing), The Lovely Bones, It's Kind of A Funny Story (RIP Ned).

Movies: Lolita (the older version), Alice in Wonderland (the original), The Little Mermaid, It's Kind of A Funny Story, Taken, Takers, Charlie St. Cloud, Step Up 1-4, Save the Last Dance, Brokeback Mountain, Blue Valentine, Grease.

TV Shows: Teen Wolf (yes, there are MAJOR issues with this show, but seriously, it's ruined my life), The Mentalist, Skins UK, Shameless US, OITNB (just finished season 2 and am already needing season 3 like I need to breathe), Suits, Chicago Fire, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU.

How many penpals do you have?: As of right now, none. But I've done this before.

How many do you want?: One of each would be cool.

Do you want email penpals?: Yes (for out of the country friends. Or ones in the country, too.)

Do you want snail mail penpals?: Yes. (I'm just running low on stamps, right now. You'll have to be a little flexible with me if I can't reply as quickly as I want, or if I have to reply via email or something. God, I hope that doesn't sound too bad?) I do have a TON of cards though, that I can send. Seriously. Tons.

How long are your letters?: 2 pages usually. Maybe more, maybe less.

How long does it take you to reply to a letter?: I usually reply the same day I get them, but like I said, I'm running a little low on stamps and with the wheelchair thing, I don't know how quickly I can get them again.

Would you like your penpal to be male or female?: I've never had a male penpal, but I'm willing to try, I suppose, even though I prefer female.

Age of penpal: 18+

What are you looking for in a penpal?: Someone to listen, someone who asks questions, someone who cares, someone who wants to know who I am/what I'm about. Someone who can be a little sassy/sarcastic, because I know I am. Someone who doesn't mind swearing -- I can cut it down some, but I might slip up. I'm just used to it.

Where would you like your penpal to be from?: Anywhere! (But if you are out of the country, I would prefer it if you used the email option. Please and thank you. :)

I'm not on here all that much, really, so if you see something you like and want to talk to me, please email me at asmoudy@gmail.com and let me know you saw my post on here. I hope you all have a wonderful day/night!

P.S. I don't really know if you're interested but my tumblr is: http://little-oysters.tumblr.com/ (although I am a bit NSFW sometimes. You know, lady parts. gay sex. Very much homo intended. We could set something up through there, too, if you wanted.)

Name: Jeremy Craft
Age:27
Location: Texas, USA
Identity: Bi-curious
Hobbies/Interests: Writing, reading, learning and spending time with family and friends.
Favorite Books: Anything by James Patterson
Favorite Movies: 300, Gladiator, Training Day
Favorite Music: Everything but country. I like heavy metal

We can write about anything and everything. I would like to receive mail from anyone who values friendships, commitments, and companionship. I can't receive packages or decorated mail, must write on plain paper, black/blue ink, and standard envelopes only please.

Okay, let me be honest with you, my life hasn't been all that great and as of right now I find myself in total solitude and alone in need of someone to simply talk to. I need a friend in my life who will lend me a shoulder to lean on when times get hard (as they are now.) I am not looking to waste time nor do I intend to play games or stir up unwanted feelings. I need friendship that can stand the test of time because I don't think that I can continue this journey on my own.

You see I'm convinced that life is a journey that sometimes leads us through rough places. But the walk becomes so much easier when we travel beside one another. That way we can reach out and find help when we need someone to lean on. It doesn't matter whose turn it may be, or, how much time it will take until the path becomes smooth again. All that does matter is that we're there for each other. And that we'll keep walking side by side wherever the road may lead us.

I am not asking you to make any sacrifices. All I ask is that you walk beside me on this lonely journey. Take a Blind Leap Of Faith with me. I promise to be completely honest about anything and everything. I will respond to anyone who writes.

NO, I don't have much to bring to the table right now but I will offer you my heart, mind and time for a small portion of yours.

I promise to satisfy you mentally and emotionally. I promise to challenge your intellect and make you smile with every letter. And last but not least, I promise that with time I will touch your heart. All I ask is that you give me a chance. . .meet me halfway.

PLEASE write me at:
Jeremy Craft #1626852

All letters, postcards, anything welcome. You have my word that I won't disappoint you.

Name: Katja

Age: 25

Location: Tampere, Finland (In Northern Europe, Scandinavia.)

How do you identify?: At the moment, I identify as non-binary. It's a pretty recent realization and I'm not sure what it means regarding my sexual identity, yet.

Interests/hobbies: I read a lot of fiction and also some books on society, gender studies, queer studies, literary history and literary theory. I play classical music and sing in a feminist choir. I'm very much into Postcrossing, which is sending postcards to strangers around the world, but I also really like receving mail from people I actually know. I'm interested in literature, gender studies, queer studies, queer theory, Ireland and many other things. I'm in some fandoms, e.g. Harry Potter, BBC Sherlock and Lord of the Rings. I drink a lot of tea and use most of my little amount of extra money on books and tea.

Favourite books: The Harry Potter series (I'm a huge fan!), Oscar Wilde's work (especially his plays), Emma Donoghue's novels, Sarah Water's novels, Donna Tartt's The Secret History, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. James Joyce's The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Of course the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Wilslava Szymborska's poems. Stephen Fry's novels, especially Making History. For Finnish writers: Pirkko Saisio and Johanna Sinisalo are my favourites. Recently, I have been reading and enjoying Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun, J.K. Rowling's A Casual Vacancy, Tove Janssons' Moomin stories and Jonas Gardell's Torka aldrig tårar utan handskar -series (about people with AIDS in Sweden in the 80s). I'm very interested in hearing about your favourite books and authors!

Favourite films: I have seen a lot fewer films than read books... The Man in the Iron Mask is one of my all-time favourites. Wilde, where Stephen Fry plays Oscar Wilde is phenomenal. V for Vendetta, Apollo 13 and The Lord of the Rings movies. I'm quite excited about the Hunger Games movies.

Favourite music: I'm not sure if I have a genre I prefer over all others. Recently I have been listening to Disco Enseble, Gossip, Gogol Bordello, Clann Zú and System of a Down.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters and postcards! Snail mail, preferably. I can also send (and wouldn't mind receving) samples of tea or candy.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone, really. I'd love to talk to people outside the gender binary, but seriosly, if anyone answers my introduction, I'll be thrilled!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any country.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: No, I can't really think of anything, besides the obvious ones, like hate mail or very unkind messages, or sexual content without any negotation about it.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Well, possibly both a postcard and a letter, filled with your thoughts about literature, music, art, gender, your life and anything you wish to tell me. Perhaps also a bag or a few spoonfuls of your favourite tea for me to sample while reading what you have written.

Anything else you'd like to add?: If you are shy about giving me your home address, we can also exchange emails first! Or I can give you my address first, or we can become FB-friends or anything that makes you comfortable. If you are not into writing long letters, postcardfriends are highly appriciated, too! Contact me here or on my email (sinipiika@outlook.com). Oh, and my journal here is only in Finnish, so although I'd love to read your entries, mine won't make much sense to you if you don't speak Finnish.

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to let ya'll know I am working on a new blog called the Great Penpal Adventures.

The plan is to have several sections, they include: one for sending letters to me, which I guarantee I will reply; an area for you to make connections to other people seeking penpals; and a section about fun ideas for letters, crafts, products, or other websites that could be useful in general penpaling. :)

I hope you can take the time to visit the site, make new friends, or find something fun to send the penpal you already have. :)

Thanks!

Shameless promoting is now over...lol. : )
[identity profile] write-in-red.livejournal.com
They say the 3rd times the charm. I have had penpals twice before; but one abandoned LJ and the other has been super busy, so…here we go

Name: Machelle

Age: 27 - it was a painful reality check to realize after this year I would be closer to 30 than 20…sigh…wrinkles are eminent…

Location: Oklahoma

How do you identify? (sexuality/gender) I don't see the point in labels, but if I did it would be bisexual

Interests/hobbies: I love to read, write, doodle, watch my favorite old TV shows on dvd *cough*Golden Girls*cough*, and listen to music. I also go through crafty phases every now and then; I can crochet, knit, sew, and make bead jewelry. I love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have its own bullet point.

Favorite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. I love to read and the listing is crazy long, so here are a few that are in my “To Read” or “Reread” pile: Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; Perks of Being a Wallflower; Pride & Prejudice; Lover At Last; Prince of Thorns; Game of Thrones; Born in Fire; House of Leaves; City of Bones; Cinder; the Replacements; Are You There Vodka, It's Me Chelsea; I, Robot; Odd Brother; Girl With the Dragon Tattoo; Wicked; White Queen. You can imagine my bedside table…lol. I read just about everything; and the invention of smart phones and tablets have saved me considerable money in chiropractor bills…lol.

Favorite films: Well, to start out, I collect lots of Disney or animated movies from when I was younger. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast; and then the list goes to Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia, so on and so forth…

My non animated movies favorites include: Noises OFF! <--best movie ever... Avengers; Skyfall; Iron Man 3; the Fast & Furious series; Last Holiday; Red Eye; Batman trilogy; LOTRs; Matrix movies; the Rush Hours; Sister Act; all Star Trek movies, old and new; Two Weeks Notice; The Holiday; Secret Garden; Little Princess; Murder by Death; Clue; Ten Inch Hero; Ocean's 11…the list continues

I love old school movies: Gidget; any Doris Day movie; Yours Mine and Ours, the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda; White Christmas; Movies with Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Cary Grant, or Rock Hudson; All of the Three Stooges episodes

I will quickly say that Sherlock and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows; and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men. So other TV shows I like: Charmed; Buffy; Angel; Fraiser; House; Law & Order, all variations; the Good Wife; Lost Girl (omg!); Glee; Chicago Fire; Switched at Birth; NCIS; Supernatural; Smallville; Xena; Hercules; Will & Grace; Reba; Sons of Anarchy; White Collar; Bones, Dick Van Dyke show, I Love Lucy, the Monkeys, Bewitched…la la la

Favorite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything, no really…Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals. Soundtracks. Also note that I need new music from the following: Florence & the Machine, Drake, Adele, Bullet for my Valentine, and the last one escapes me…but if you are in touch with any of these people, or their agents, please let them know of my need for new CDs ASAP. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

What would you like to send/receive? Emails. Letters. Postcards. Pictures. fun stuff.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from? Pretty much anyone 18+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to? Oh anywhere would be exciting as long as you speak English; unless you also speak French because I'm trying to learn...lol.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive? (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I am opposed to pretty much any food stuff.

What would be in your dream letter or package? The getting of a letter or email just makes me smile; so consistent responses would be awesome. I’m not talking about every day, though we can do that if we go the digital route; but I would like to keep this going for a while. I miss the daily, weekly, or monthly doses of happiness I get just from knowing someone took the time to reach out to me.

Anything else you'd like to add?: On my last post I had a random rant here about Youtube not having a repeat button; but that has since been fixed by someone who is unknown to me, but to whom I am forever indebted.
