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.

Penpal!

Name: Rachel

Age: 21 (22 next month!)

Location: Salem, Oregon, USA

How do you identify?: I've been known to identify as a lesbian and as bisexual over the years but have recently concluded that I am, in fact, a bi-romantic asexual.

Interests/hobbies: Writing, photography, Minecraft, watching shows and documentaries on Netflix, anthropology, history (particularly WWII), and cooking.

Favourite books: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, Night by Elie Wiesel, Back Roads by Tawni O'Dell, Lamb by Christopher Moore, American Gods by Niel Gaiman, and The Hunger Games. I'm not a huge reader so discussions here might fall short.

Favourite films/shows: Pirates of the Caribbean, The Bourne Trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia series.. I'm honestly not much for films. I mean, I'll watch them, but I don't go nuts over them or anything. TV shows on the other hand? Supernatural, United States of Tara, Battlestar Galactica, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Twilight Zone, Unsolved Mysteries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Big Bang Theory, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, Roseanne, Dexter, Star Trek: TOS, Veronica Mars, and Downton Abbey. =D

Favourite music: My music taste is pretty boring since I'm not the type of person who needs music to live. But I do enjoy some indie/alternative, pop (mostly 80s and 90s), and classic rock.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, creative writing, journal entries, music/movie/show recs, music mixes, recipe exchanges, etc... I would prefer this would all be done via email for convenience and writing by hand kills my carpal tunnel.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I'm open to anyone, but I would especially appreciate asexuals and anyone within the 19 - 25 age range. All I ask is that they are consistent, open-minded, and that we have at least two things in common (always need a backup!)

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere is fine by me so long as their English is understandable. I'd especially enjoy a German or Scot. 

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Preferably nothing via snail mail.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Random discussions about anything and everything, recipe exchanges, creative writing or journal entries, music mixes, movie/show/music recommendations, rants, reviews, pretty much anything!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I do suffer from ADHD, depression, and anxiety and I am in therapy so I might talk about these things on occasion. If this makes you uncomfortable than please let me know beforehand. I don't want to be a downer for anybody!

Name: Christy

Age: 21

Location: Scotland

How do you identify?: I’m not big on labels, but if I had to apply one I would probably consider myself a lesbian woman but I have had sexual contact with guys in the past.  Still, I am primarily attracted to other women.

About me: What to say?  I am currently enjoying the rather long summer between my third and fourth year of university.  I study law at Edinburgh, and have a bit of a love hate relationship, i.e. when it’s stuff I enjoy, I love it, when it comes to referencing essays, I hate it.  I’m generally a calm person and enjoy staying in just as much as I do going out.  I’ve never been the most confident person I know, but I do try not to be too shy.  I love animals, especially my cats, and I take waay too many pictures of them.  I enjoy going out for drinks or something to eat, especially since apart from baking cakes and making desserts, I suck in the kitchen.  I love the friends I have, but am always happy to have more.  My friends would probably describe me as a little mad, loyal and funny, which all things considered isn’t too bad! 

Interests/hobbies: Writing, reading, watching TV, going out for random excursions, going for drinks. 

Favorite books/authors: Dean Koontz, Philippa Gregory, Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, Oscar Wilde, Ian Rankin, Scott Lynch, many of the classics...I’ll pretty much read anything that takes my fancy

Favourite Music:  I’ll listen to almost anything, from rock to pop, country to classical.  I play violin so I guess I have a bit of a weak spot for a gorgeous string melody.

Favorite movies/TV shows: Doctor Who, Grey's Anatomy, Rizzoli and Isles, Law and Order SVU, The Good Wife, ER, Harry’s Law, Prime Suspect, Hot in Cleveland – pretty much any courtroom/cop/medical drama, but then I also love a good chick flick (as predictable as they can be) or a comedy.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything really.  I do have to confess, I have a bit of a love for snail mail with nice stationary and stuff but I'm up for e-mail too and would love to send postcards occasionally or little trinkets, mixed cds, handmade stuff, doodles etc. 

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone, so long as they're open minded.  Someone who likes to chat about all the random little things that make them smile and the things that interest them.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere! But I should point out that I only speak English.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not that I can think of – just nothing too weird, I suppose. 

What would be in your dream letter or package?:  Something to make me smile, whether that’s a long letter ranting about some random little thing that bugging you, telling about something you found that reminds you of old times, or just what was going through your head when you last walked through the park, or sat in a coffee shop because it was raining outside and watched the world go by.  Maybe a few pictures, some little doodles or a trinket of some sort?

Anything else you'd like to add?:  “No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.” (Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own)

Name: Jess

Age: 28

Location: Southeast Michigan

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.

How do you identify?: I haven't quite figured this out yet.  I am female and closer to femme than to butch.  I am attracted to people who are intelligent, kind, and share my social and political values with little regard to outward appearance.

Interests/hobbies:  I like to knit, write, read (obviously), send obnoxiously full envelopes, record myself reading poems and poetry onto cassette tapes, draw badly, stare at the cute girl in my feminism class, and cuddle with people who are having a bad day.

Favourite books:  Wicked, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, and Mirror, Mirror by Gregory Maguire; A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray; Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce; Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling; The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood; Possession by A. S. Bayatt; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova; Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; Full-Frontal Feminism by Jessica Valenti; Yes Means Yes by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti; The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir; ... A lot of other things ...

Favourite films:  I haven't seen as many movies as I wish I had.  I love children's movies because I believe that the relationships are so much more believable, the humor is more light-hearted, and because I very rarely leave feeling badly about myself.

Favourite music:  I like music that is light-hearted and upbeat, generally speaking, especially folk.  Again, I am not as well-versed in music as I would like to be.  Some of the bands I listen to frequently include Mumford and Sons, Sunset Rubdown, Iron & Wine, Josh Ritter, Kimya Dawson, The Bird and the Bee, and Andrea Gibson.  (Does spoken word poetry count?  It has lyrics ...)

What would you like to send/receive?: I can knit hats and scarves, I write stories and poems for people, I make awful paintings, I tear things out of magazines, and I can record myself reading stories for you.  I'd like to send tangible letters and gifts, but I would also be okay with e-mail, since it's faster and more convenient for some people.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who is kind, has an interest in arts and/or politics, and wants to send and receive mail from me, naturally.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Any at all

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything with animal products:  I'm vegan

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Tea bags, lovely stories about someone's life, colorful photographs or paintings, small perfume samples, and genuine affection

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm very shy at first.  Please don't let that scare you off.

Picture: Yay, belly dancing!

I have seven days left until I start my final year of school, so that's a time suck. Besides that, I'm musical, I play the piano a lot.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
I'd be really interested to hear from someone American or maybe from somewhere in Europe?

Non restrictive. Nothing that will arouse suspicion/get me arrested, I guess.

I'd love to just get a stack of photographs, of everything you do in a day. I'd send you mine, of course. That's my dream.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
