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.

Anything else you'd like to add? I have a cat; her name is Booker.

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!

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.

> Favourite books: I have so many, but here are a few: "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett, "Book of Hours" by Rilke, anything by Linda Pastan, the Stieg Larsson books, Geraldine Brooks' "People of the Book," "The Never-Ending Story," Radclyffe's medical dramas, and most recently, a lot of noir detective fiction.

> Favourite films: La Belle et la Bete, Star Wars, Devil Wears Prada (because I think Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway are both pretty attractive), Firefly series, Farscape series, + so many more.

> Favourite music: pretty much anything depending on what mood I'm in.  Lately I've been listening to a lot of classical music featuring cellos (a phase, I'm sure) but I've been mixing in some modern rock and alternative, folk-rock, moldy oldies, and some lite R&B/HipHop.  I'm pretty much all over the charts on this one.

Ripe ol' age of 21

Northwest Territories, Canada aka really far up there

How do you identify?:

I'm gonna be honest and upfront and say that one of my biggest interests is babes. Other than that, I'm really into movies and live music, queer and trans activism, volunteering, reading, hanging out with friends whether it's watching movies, camping, beers on someone's deck or dancing at a club. I'm a pretty openminded person and I'm pretty happy doing just about anything. Oh! And now that it's summer time, I'm super into swimming and being outdoors.

Favourite books:
Junk by Melvin Burgess, Lucky by Alice Sebold, Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg, Crybaby Butch by Judith Frank, Godspeed by Lynn Breedlove, Push by Saphire, Anything written by Ivan Coyote

Favourite films:
The Whale Rider, Party Monster, Lost and Delirious, Now and Then, Girl, Interrupted, The Reader, Doubt, Hotel Rwanda, Save the Last Dance, Dan in Real Life, Little Miss Sunshine, Sunshine Cleaning, Boys Don't Cry, American History X

Favourite music:
I like to think I'm pretty open to most kinds of music but realistically, I'm mainly into folk/accoustic and rap. I know, it's a really weird combo. I'm also really into the local music scene in my hometown of Halifax, NS so you might not recognize many of the artists. My faves are: Jenn Grant, Meg Hutchinson, Eminem, Drake, Billie Holiday, Sublime, A Tribe Called Quest, Sage Francis, Missy Higgins, Ani DiFranco, Amelia Curran, Ria Mae, Rose Cousins, Kim Wempe, The Gossip, Immortal Technique, Jill Barber, Lauryn Hill

What would you like to send/receive?:
Post cards, packages, letters, CDs, photos ~ oh and adult images and literature are totally cool with me

I'd prefer someone my age or older, though. Other than that, any gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, location, age. I'm totally open to everything.

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

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
I'd be a little sketched out if I got food in the mail and I'm not really into adding anybody to Facebook but other than that, I'm good with whatever!

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
I'm really into getting zines in the mail. So maybe a zine or two, a couple of photos and whatever else you can cram into an envelope.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
I live in a super tiny, isolated Arctic community and there isn't a whole lot that I do so I'm a pretty prompt penpal! The only problem is that because I'm so isolated, mail takes a little while to get in and out of the community so you'd have to be a patient penpal. But with that said, I can send you some pretty cool things that you don't/can't find in the rest of the world!

[identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/__longingtofly/

Name: Karen, but you can also call me Kaz or Kazzy.

Age: 22

Location: I live in Newark, NY. I attend college in Houghton, NY.

How do you identify?: I suppose I would identify myself as a Lesbian..still trying to work that out. I find certain guys handsome, but being in a relationship with a guy isn't appealing to me now.

Interests/hobbies: Hanging out/watching movies with friends, animals (especially cats, dogs, wolves, horses, and foxes), baking, making people smile, reading, walks, rain, sunsets, a little photography, watching thunderstorms, playing pokemon, taking naps, staying up too late, my kitties, my Betta fish, and I have a slight obsession with Harry Potter. ^_^;

Favourite books: Harry Potter, Pride & Prejudice, The Sight by David Clement-Davies, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, and I'm going to begin reading Eragon soon. I have a couple more books I want to read before the summer's over. I keep having Twilight suggested to me, but no thank you. My loyalty is to Harry Potter. XD

Favorite TV shows: I don't usually watch too much TV. My favorite show is Whose Line is it Anyway?, but I also like to watch MythBusters and Man v. Food.

Favourite films: How to Train Your Dragon (I have a Betta named Toothless that I bought the same day I saw the movie :D), The Princess and the Frog, Harry Potter (the books are soooo much better, though), Lord of the Rings, Pride & Prejudice (both the 1995 and 2005 version), Save the Last Dance, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Music and Lyrics, Serenity...and more.

Favourite music: For the past oh..4 or so years, I've listened mainly to Christian music. Like Skillet, This Beautiful Republic, Wavorly, and Fireflight. But I also enjoy Tegan & Sara, Taylor Swift, Evanescence, and Daughtry. I'm totally open to suggestions. :)

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, pictures, and drawings if you draw and feel like sharing. Emails are okay at first. Packages are fine too.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: I would especially like to send/receive mail from bisexual or lesbian females.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: It doesn't matter that much..but I only know English.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything questionable or inappropriate.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: A cute stuffed animal, a few pictures, and a letter that makes me smile. :)

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm Christian, but am open-minded. I've only recently (as in the past month), come to accept that I like girls. I've been with girls in the past, but when I became Christian, I basically suppressed it because I was told it was "wrong". But I'm not going to lie about who I am anymore, nor do I think it's wrong. Needless to say, I have not told most of my Christian friends. I already lost one of my best friends when I told her, and she won't be the only one when other people find out. So, I'm really looking for friends (or something more, to be honest) I can talk to and that will accept me. I hope some of you are interested..^_^;

Picture (optional):

This is me with one of my kitties, Bobo. I love him so much. :)

I'm hoping this gets a better reception than last time; I pray I'm not that boring that no one wanted to comment even *cries*

Name: Sara

Age: 27

Location: Akron, OH, USA

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) I'm a bisexual female. I'm not sure what I'm attracted to more, but I do like men and women equally. However, I am fiercely loyal to those I'm attached to, so take that as you will.

Interests/hobbies: I'm a part time law student, full time 911 phone operator, ride dressage and probably should've gone pro, but never did due to the fact I don't want riding to be a job instead of being something fun. I love to read, write fanfiction (even though law school has taken away most of my free time for writing). My fandoms include Hellsing, Cowboy Bebop, Star Wars, and Harry Potter. I enjoy cosplaying, but I'm a terrible seamstress lol. I dislike Twilight, and I love vampires that don't sparkle and stories that do not glorify domestic abuse like Stephanie Meyers has made all little girls believe they should expect out of their relationships. Sorry, but love isn't about complete control over one party. I love cats, I have three wonderful companions in Charlie, Sizuka, and Fedde. I'm a solitary wiccan with Catholic tendencies. Basically, I am a contradiction, but a fun one :)

Favourite books: The Harry Potter Series, Percy Jackson series, Things Fall Apart, Joy Luck Club, The Thrawn Trilogy, and Outbound Flight.

Favourite films: Cruel Intentions, The Talented Mr Ripley, Good Will Hunting, Order of the Phoenix.

Favourite music: Metal, Rock, Punk, Screamo, Grunge.... I like rock. Some of my favorite bands are My Chemical Romance, Disturbed, Metallica, Fall Out Boy, Ludo, and Taking Back Sunday. Within Temptation and Lacuna Coil are starting to grow on me, but I still need a bit of time before I can say I absolutely love them.

What would you like to send/receive?: Letters, small gift packages, whatever strikes my fancy, or your fancy, really.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone that wants to chat. I would ask, though, that people be over 18.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Any country is fine but those that are overseas will likely receive letters and very small gifts because of shipping costs.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts"): Nothing too pervy. I might like it, but I live with my mother while in school (it's cheap and convenient to campus.... lol) so therefore things have to be acceptable in her eyes.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Surprise me!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I am hoping to connect with like minded people, and I'll be honest; I'd love a relationship. I know, I know, it's needy to post that, but I see it as honesty. Why string people along if your intentions are different?

Picture (optional):

Yes, I know, you guys have been getting slammed with stuff because of the spotlight and you probably hate it. I just want to say that this is such a cool idea. I really love this. <3 (Note: Edited January 2011)

Name: Amber
Age: 25
Location: Virginia, United States
How do you identify?: This is complicated for me. In my early teen years I identified as bisexual, but I'm no longer really attracted to women. As for gender... I was born female, but I have definitely come to accept I'm FTM. The problem is that I'm married, and my husband is definitely straight. I still love him very much, and so I'm stuck remaining female until my life changes.
Interests/hobbies: Roleplaying and writing. Reading - just about anything. Hot Wheels (the toy cars). I absolutely love animals - I have three miniature pinschers and four cats - though I'm currently fostering a litter of kittens - and a koi pond. Movies. Theater. Music - both playing and listening; I play seven or eight instruments. I'm interested in cooking, though I don't do it much. I love webdesign and coding, as well.
Favorite books: Too many to list. It's probably easier to list favorite authors, really. Anne Rice, Naomi Novik, David Levithan. The Harry Potter series. I love sci fi/fantasy, vampire stories, classics, plays, some romance, historical fiction. I'm not big on westerns. Here's what I've read this year - I've not been reading much lately, sadly.
Favorite films: Star Trek, Stargate, Sherlock Holmes, IronMan, IronMan 2, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, anything with Will Ferrell - especially Stranger then Fiction.
Favorite music: I listen to just about all music, except country. Favorite artists include - Incubus, Live, Metallica, Rammstein, Korn, 311.
What would you like to send/receive?: I don't know. I'm just looking to make some connections with people who know what it's like to be queer. I'd probably prefer to start out things in comments/PMs on LJ. From there we can go to IM, e-mail, handwritten letters, packages, whatever. I've always wanted penpals, but after running into some psychos online, I'm hesitant.
Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone with similar interests and favorites.
What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: The US would be cheapest, which is good, but I don't mind mailing internationally.
Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Candy/sweets aren't a great idea, since I'm diabetic, but since I got my insulin pump I indulge every once in a while.
What would be in your dream letter or package?: I haven't given it a lot of thought.
Anything else you'd like to add?: I can't think of anything right now.
Picture: I hate pictures of myself, but if you really want one, I'll give you one.

Name: JD (two letters, easy to remember)

Age: 27

Location: Idaho, USA

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Officially, I have no sexuality. I took a vow of celibacy 8 months ago. But prior to that I was pretty flagrantly bisexual. And by that, I mean I like what I like, and what ever's between the legs is fine by me. I'm male, but the inner gay man likes to escape now and again. Actually I am FTM, but far enough along in my transition, I rarely have to say that outloud any more.

Interests/hobbies: Dogs and Horses. I make a living training dogs and horses. So they take up the primary amount of my focus. I studied English (creative writing) in college, and fancy myself something of an author, but hesitate on being published because I am an oddity like that. I live and breathe music, including performing at a bar on sunday nights. I read a lot. I am into biking, swimming, hiking, camping, and any sport that could potentially kill me. I played baseball growing up, and am a first degree blackbelt. I do most of the repairs on my ancient and decrepit but beloved truck myself. I am a hardcore geek at heart. I role play, I show up to movie premieres in costume, and I'm unapologetic about it. And I do karaoke a couple of nights a week with my band, because I'm that kind of nerd. I also collect antique books.

Favourite books: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (James Joyce), Picture of Dorian Grey
(Oscar Wilde), The Dresden Files (Jim Butcher), The Crucible (Arthur Miller), The Courtship of Princess Leia (David Wolverton...yes I am a star wars junkie). Out of Sight (Elmore Leonard), Lonesome Dove (Larry McMurty), About a Boy (Nicolas Hornby), and anything by Hemmingway.

Favourite films: This will be a long list.Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Rebel with out a Cause, Star Wars (episodes IV through VI), Star Trek IV, Blade Trinity, Shawshank Redemption, 500 Days of Summer, Lethal Weapon 3, Terminator, Terminator 2, Stargate, John Carptener's Vampires (I kind of have this thing for bad vampire movies...), Lost Boys, Ocean's 11 (original and the remake), Serenity.Butch Cassidey and the Sundance Kid. And musicals. I love music, so naturally I love musicals. Newsies, RENT, West Side Story, and Sound of Music are amongst my favorites.

Favorite TV shows: (I'm adding this, because I love tv. A lot. It's probably my favorite medium). The X Files (it goes first because it was the single greatest thing to ever grace the airwaves), Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Profiler, Stargate (SG1 and Atlantis), Supernatural, Castle, GLEE, Sliders, Torchwood, Burn Notice, Pysch, the Big Bang Theory, Star Trek (TNG mostly, but I watched them all)...thank the gods for DVR, right?

Favourite music: I'll just list a couple, because when it comes to music I have only one philosophy: if it's good, I'll listen to it. But my favorites include: Bad Religion, Green Day, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin (best bad ever), The Beatles, the Doors, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Garth Brooks, Broadway Classics (especially music from Miss Saigon and Les Mis). Sex Pistoles, The Ramones, and Hair bands. Mostly it's classic rock, with a sprinkling of whatever the hell else I find during a youtube crawl.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything really. I'm open to all kinds of new expierences and things. Though I gotta say someone who could turn me on to new books and music and movies would be awesome. And I like letters. There is something very satisfying about opening the mailbox and there being a letter there (amongst all the bills) just for you. I like hand written, or typed, and I say that with the notion in mind that my handwriting is virtually a foreign language. So if you go that route with me, consider this fair warning.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone. Any where. Any time. Bring it on.

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

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I'm allergic to soy and mustard seed. SO yeah that wouldn't be really usable for me. Also, I am willing to discuss religious philosophy, but conversion tactics aren't appreciated. Otherwise, bring it on!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Hand written letter, or letters depending on how often one is sending such things. Something that would have taken time to construct, and shows thought and effort. And mix CDs of new music from all over the place. Maybe other writer's works just for fun.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Not really. I'm pretty approachble, or I try to be. I think I'm fun, or at least I'm told I am by those who insist on calling me friend. I'm part old school cowboy, part punk rock revolutionary, and a significantly committed daredevil. I also practically never sleep.

Picture (optional): There's one in the icon thingee, but I'll share more as I get to know folk.
