Name: You can call me Amelia here, real name available when letter-writing.

Age: 32

Location: Helsinki, Finland

How do you identify?: I used to identify as bisexual, but I've started suspecting I swing rather more to the lesbian end of the spectrum than I've realised, though it can be hard to say just how much more. Female, born so and identifying as such. I'm still more likely to say "girl" than "woman" about myself.

Interests/hobbies: There are ever so many! I love to read, and I adore writing, especially creative writing (mainly prose with occasional dabs at poetry and dreams about writing plays and musicals) but also any other form of putting thoughts and feelings into words. I find the world a terribly interesting place, and am fascinated by a huge amount of things, with a particular interest in history, sciences, and just observing the world and people and thinking about life. I'm quite into languages and travelling. I also love spending time out in the nature, though as I live in the city that most often means parks and small-ish bits of forest. I adore theatre and have been known to travel to other countries to see a particular musical production. I'm a tea addict. I love crocheting, though lately it's often been limited to looking at pretty patterns or starting things I don't finish. I'm also interested in environmental issues, feminism and queer issues. I love animals, but don't have any of my own at the moment.

Favourite books: There are a ton, but some favourites include books by L.M. Montgomery (especially the Emily books), Jane Austen, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Sarah Waters, Terry Pratchett, Gail Carriger, the Harry Potter books, The Count of Monte Cristo, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, the Mary Poppins books, The Secret Garden, the Moomin books (am also starting to read Tove Jansson's works for adults)... I'm probably forgetting many. For a long time I mainly read older lit (especially 19th and very early 20th century), historical novels and fantasy, but lately I've been expanding more to modern literature as well, and I'm looking for new favourites. At the moment I seem to enjoy many kinds of things and can be reading Mansfield Park, Dykes to Watch Out For and some Finnish YA fantasy all in the same day. I also love poetry, and some of my favourites include Christina Rossetti, Emily Dickinson, T.S. Eliot, and some Finnish poets, especially Katri Vala, Kirsi Kunnas and Kaarlo Sarkia.

Favourite films: Frozen, Amélie, Dead Poets Society, F*cking Åmål (also called Show Me Love). I don't watch a lot of films, but these come to my mind first. I also like watching TV series, though I can only handle one or two at a time since I don't like spending that much time watching things on screens. At the moment I love BBC's Sherlock and have just gotten into Dr Who.

Favourite music: My music taste is mostly terribly untrendy and I'm mainly into classical music and musicals. I also enjoy Hayley Westenra, some film soundtracks, Josh Groban and Vienna Teng. My favourite musicals are especially European fare like Elisabeth, Mozart! and Tanz der Vampire, but I also enjoy watching plenty of other things. Spring Awakening, Les Misérables and Disney musicals might count among the musicals English-speakers also know.

What would you like to send/receive?: Mainly letters, though if we have shared interests, be it tea or poetry or whatever, we can sure also send things connected to them from time to time. Also, I've only started using LJ again, so if someone doesn't want new penpals but does want to become LJ friends, that's very welcome if we have some things in common!

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone with some similar interests, especially other bi/lesbian girls/women. Oh, and hopefully someone who's not going to be worked up if I take a while to answer. I'm only getting back to having more than one pen friend, and I don't yet know how it will go, what with having to work and all, so though I want to write letters, I don't want to feel really stressed about it. I'm kind of rambly and more likely to take some time writing a long letter than dash up a short one quickly.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Particularly Europe, but anywhere is fine. As a bonus, I'd love a chance to keep up my French and German through letter-writing.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") Nothing in particular, though if you want to send tea, it's best we have first talked about what I mean by good tea. ;-)

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Just a nice fat letter filled with thoughts, life things and whatever else you want to talk about! I do love it if there's some discussion about things like books, theatre etc. in letters.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Contact either by commenting here or e-mailing amelia.in.garden AT gmail.com. And even if you come across this ad much later and feel like we should get to know each other, feel free to contact me - I'll let you know if I can't take any more penpals at the moment.

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. If you type the word repeat inside the URL like this --> www."repeat"youtube.com/url without the " " it should repeat the video for you! Genius, huh?

Also, I'm a ginger. I thought I would give you fair warning in case you were worried about your soul.

Ok, let's get this going. I had set something up with a would be pen pal several months ago, but she has since abandoned LJ. Sad days. Here's hoping this time goes better.

Name: Machelle

Age: Turned 25 in April

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 my Mom is teaching me to quilt...though we may kill each other before it's all over... I also love taking pictures and scrapbooking. Oh! and movie quotes, my love for movie quotes should probably have it's own bullet point. Tattoos, I have three and have several more planned.

Favourite books: Quite a few classics, but most are from Medieval to Renaissance literature. Anything by Amy Tan. I like pretty much all of Kim Harrison's and Laurell K. Hamilton's stuff. Gone with the Wind and Scarlett. I just bought Full Dark No Stars by Steven King, and the Game of Thrones. I'm in the middle of an amazing biography on Cleopatra by someone Schiff...I think. Love it. Also, I have the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks next to my laptop. I read just about everything and almost always have at least one book within reaching distance, even if it's just on my phone...Because let's be for real. Smart phones that double as e-readers? Best Thing EVER.

Favourite films: Oh. This is going to be all sort of trouble I can tell. Well, to start out, I love and collect almost any Disney movie from my childhood. My favorite is Beauty & the Beast, I was beside myself when it was re released this year. Little Mermaid, Tarzan, Emperor's New Groove, the Aladdin trilogy, Aristocats, and Anastasia! My non animated movies favorites consist of several trilogies : LOTR, Matrix, the Rush Hours. I also 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 and Dean Martin. And who doesn't love a good comedy or romcom? Sister Act. Two Weeks Notice. Last Holiday. The Holiday. Pretty much anything Sandra Bullock or Queen Latifah have done. This is getting ridiculous. Lets just say I love movies and leave it at that. I will quickly say that Supernatural and Golden Girls are my two favorite shows, and I also believe Joss Whedon to be a god among men...'nough said. Oh! And don't forget musicals! Never could! Producers. Wicked. Cats. Rent. those are my favorites.

Favourite music: Who can pick? I listen to just about everything. No really. Lol. I used to qualify that with the statement that I didn't listen to rap, but my bf has decided that as a ginger, and the only white best friend she has ever had that I need some swag lessons...which are failing spectacularly, in case you were curious. So now I own and like a couple cds by Nikki Minaj, Drake, Chris Brown, and some other people that I just can't remember. Country. Pop. Hip Hop. Rap. Trance. Classical. some Techno. Lots of Gregorian Chant. Musicals, I lump this in here because I have listened to more soundtracks than plays I have actually seen live, but I love them all. Fabulous stuff, this music that sings to our souls.

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

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Pretty much anyone 19+

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Oh anywhere would be exciting.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I opposed to pretty much any food stuff. It tends not to make it to its destinations. I only know this because I sent a few care packages home from England when I spent a semester in the UK, and some of the candy didn't make it home. So, that means someone in Customs on the UK or US side grabbed a snack, bloody thieves. Just sayin'.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A letter that makes me smile and is full of heart felt words and empty of judgments.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Yup. Can anyone tell me why Youtube doesn't have a repeat button? Seriously. It would make my life sooooo much easier...no lie. Also, I should apologize for the ellipsis in advance...lol.

How do you identify?: female/bisexual

Interests/hobbies: Canning, writing (poetry, short stories, really horribly conceived comics), biking (I have the most darling bike I call Finch), camping, snuggling (while watching movies, reading, looking at the starts, trying to stay awake, pretty much at all times), sewing (this fluctuates as I haven't actually sewed anything for at least a year), read (lots and lots and lots of reading), debating ideas (in a very VERY friendly manner-I don't do mean!)

Favourite books: I'm not even sure how to start answering this. Every book is my favourite book while I'm reading it. I have a Master's degree in Children's Literature, so I tend to read a ton of children's and young adult books. I am also a huge fan of comics/graphic novels (we can debate the (lack of) difference between the terms at some point). But here are a few that I keep coming back to: A Wizard of Earthsea, Rebecca, Persepolis, The Martian Chronicles, Changing Planes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Boy Meets Boy, His Dark Material Trilogy,  Transmetropolitan, Sandman, Harry Potter, Slaughterhouse Five, Breakfast of Champions, Howls Moving Castle, Brave New World... rest assured that I could go on and on. However, if you want to chat more about my love of reading, I'm always game!

Favourite films: The Princess Bride, Star Wars (only the old school), The Birdcage, Robin Hood Men in Tights, Robin and the Seven Hoods, Serenity, Shaun of the Dead, Lord of the Rings, Cowboy Bebop, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Hero, Fearless, Iron Monkey (I love Kung-Fu...), Moulin Rouge, Pirates of the Caribbean (mostly just the first), Howl's Moving Castle, and Casablanca. I also have a soft spot in my heart for really bad sci-fi/fantasy/demonic movies...it can't be explained but I just can't help but love those flicks (Constantine, 

Favourite music: Pretty eclectic mix. I love everything from Bluegrass to Rap. My favs. might include: Tori Amos, Indigo Girls, Mumford and Sons, Iron and Wine, Madonna, and the Top 40 (mostly while driving or working out). 

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, Postcards, artwork, photographs, small packages.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Totally open to where ever!

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

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") Meat, anything I would find offensive (we can discuss this before anything gets sent).

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Photographs of personally meaningful sights, images, people, or things from your life/world/day/week/year/etc. Likewise, handmade things (art, poetry, stories, mix-cd, video, etc...). I actually enjoy hear about what people do and think of a day to day basis so I would love diary like entries! 

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm a bit scattered and somewhat crazy, so you have to be open minded about this and recognize that sometimes I won't make much sense.

Name: V
Age: 23
Location: Finland

Zodiac Sign:
Sun: Gemini
Rising: Cancer
Moon: Aquarius
Rabbit in Chinese astrology.

How do you identify?:
A gentleman. Androgyne, very much in to male aesthetics anyway. Born female but never really felt like one (on the other hand how should a female feel like, then? I don't know). Like to dress in old-fashioned men's clothing. I guess I'm something in between. I have reached the state of mind where I just feel like a unique entity without any labels whatsoever. Mostly drawn to men and manly/androgyne women, but I don't think genders matter that much - I love everyone beautiful and inspiring. I'm generally not very interested in sex.

Interests/hobbies:
Travelling, hiking, solitude, silence, steam engines, film cameras, classic cars, seaweed, mysticism, found objects, tea-drinking, random activism; Swimming in the lake, making firewood, learning new things, combing through fleamarkets and antique fairs; All sorts of things. I'm a bookbinder and an exceptionally lousy painter. I wish I had more energy to paint, I still have dozens of unfinished boards from 2007 or 2008. Sometimes I just can't get myself together. Drawing, painting, arts and crafts are all part of my everyday life. Things I really need to learn: Welding, woodworking, rare languages, how to use a chainsaw.

I've done this once before and I have been talking to some great people ever since (Z <3). So, why not try it again and see who I come up with! :)

Name: Alexis

Age: 16

Location: Baltimore, MD

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Pansexual Female.

Interests/hobbies: I love psychology and answering/asking questions. I'm a girly-girl, so I love dressing up, eyeshadow, mascara, make up of any kind. I love to bake cupcakes, paint, take pictures, play with hair, laugh, and sing. I won't lie to you, I'm not always nice - I insult people like it's going out of style - but who is always genuinely nice these days? I'm not afraid to tell you what I think, and I like to play the devil's advocate. I write because it's my passion and I strive to learn something new, everyday. Even though I have my mean tendencies, I like to think I have a big heart. There's so much I care about, I have so much love, and I'd like to share it with you.

Favourite books: Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras by Scott Westerfeld. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. The Twilight Series (Yes, I am serious. I'm a hopeless romantic). I absolutely ADORE books, so I have tons of favorites that would take me too long to write. I'm always open to suggestions, however. :)

Favourite films: I love little kid movies. Alice In Wonderland (the original. Don't even get me started on the remake) is probably my absolute favorite movie. The Shining, Step Up 1-3, Final Destination 1-4, Save The Last Dance. I don't like: LOTR, Harry Potter, The Breakfast Club, The Goonies, or Forest Gump.

Favourite music: I love classical music (Tchaikovsky <3), The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, The Temptations, Gym Class Heroes, Travie McCoy, you name it and I'll tell you if I like them.

What would you like to send/receive?: I'm big on letters and cards (birthday or holiday, or just random cards). But if letters are not your thing, I can do email, too. Pick your poison.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Well, I'm only 16, so keep that in mind. The highest I'd feel comfortable going is about 19.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anyone! International mail is surprisingly cheap (my letter to Italy only cost me 98 cents!) But, once again, if international mail isn't so cheap for you, I have an email address.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"): I'm not big on food in the mail or things that will get me in trouble with the law. Remember, I'm only 16.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Letters, cards, pictures, cd's, dried flowers, drawings, stories, poems, something bright and colorful, anything you think will get me to know you better.

I'm looking for life long friends. If you have commitment issues, then I'm probably not the girl to talk to. And I am in school, so it might take me a day or two to send the letter back. But don't fear, I will always reply. I can write and read a bit of French (I'm a beginner), but I'd prefer English. Let me know if you're interested! :)
