Description:

Tired of seeing swaps for Pocket Letters that are pink or for holidays? Want something that's really "you" in your Pocket Letter binder? This is the swap for you!

Each swapper will list a minimum of 5 fandoms in the comments, and then your partner will make you a profile-based Pocket Letter themed to one of those fandoms. Please list a variety; if they are all specific Hello Kitty characters, for example, your partner might be at a loss for what to do.

These Pocket Letters should include:

  • Decorated front
  • Lightly decorated back (not just white paper)
  • A letter talking about the fandoms your partner likes/if you like the same/what you discovered about the fandom while making the PL/etc.
  • At least 3 little goodies tucked into the pockets. Goodies don't have to be fandom-themed, but should be profile-based. Common goodies include: fun paperclips, washi tape samples, stickers, smashbook items, tea packets, etc.

When folded, PLs fit into regular business sized envies, but are often too bulky/fragile for simple mailing; check your postage requirements! The link above and the internet in general has lots of inspiration for PLs.

I will manually screen participants but know that your profile must be filled out well and any or all low ratings must be adequately explained.

Recap:

  • 1 profile-based fandom-themed PL to 1 partner
  • Containing 1 letter and 3+ goodies

Don't forget to list your fandoms below!! And feel free to make an international version (perhaps after this swap concludes).

Ya know...If you want to mix up these fandoms, I would so be ok with it. There are 9 pockets..;) Can not wait to make someone squeal with delight when they get theirs.

I would be up for the board game one too. :)

user2637 04/14/2015 #

I think just one fandom for the whole pocket letter, UNLESS your partner specifies that combining them is okay. How does that sound everyone?

Also, if you want to update your list, you can copy the whole thing and then add/change, and I will delete the old ones before assigning partners so that it's easier to find the "right" list. I think I'm going to have to change mine since I forgot GoT and other things. ;)

user2637 04/14/2015 #

My fandoms are:

  1. Doctor Who or Torchwood tv shows (separately or together, Cap Jack Harkness is my fav, and the 11th Doctor)

I'm all for handmade things! No need to purchase anything if you're my partner, I like to see people's creativity. And I don't mind if you mix & match fandoms (just know that Hannibal will get you that heart tho...!)

If you need more info about why I'm in these fandoms, just message me! I have several that no one else has listed, so I'll understand if you need a good starting point should google just be a barrage of confusing images. :)

user2637 04/25/2015 #

I need to clarify a bit about pocket letters, or what I think are pocket letters anyway.

To me, all the pockets should be decorated, even after "pick-pocketing" out the goodies. Some swaps just take a 9-pocket page and put goodies in it and when you take them out, it's totally empty.

That is not the idea with this swap. We should each end up with a well-decorated page that we can look at later (and drool over for those of us who receive Daryl or Oliver Queen pages, haha).

de243066 04/25/2015 #

The Walking Dead

Game of Thrones

Disney Princesses

Harry Potter

Pokemon

Winnie the Pooh

Supernatural

and Breaking Bad

I love this swap idea :)

Melumebelle 04/27/2015 #
  1. Doctor Who (4th and 10th with Rose/Donna)
  2. Star Trek (TNG and Voyager)
  3. X - Files
  4. Harry Potter (I'm a Ravenclaw!)
  5. BATMAN / X-Men (maybe one is harder than the other - I'm not sure so I put both!!)
Nserviam 04/28/2015 #

Some of mine are based on books, so I tried to add in a few more in case my partner hadn't read them yet. If you have any questions or would like clarification, please PM me!

1 - Welcome to Night Vale

2 - Sailor Moon

3 - Terry Pratchett's Discworld - Especially the characters Tiffany Aching, Sam Vimes, Moist Von Lipwig

4 - Howl's Moving Castle and other Studio Ghibli films - Sophie, Calcifer, and the soot sprites are my favorite characters.

5 - Catbug from Bravest Warriors

6 - The Big Lebowski

7 - Neil Gaiman (Author) - Especially Neverwhere, Good Omens, and any of his quotes. I would totally be okay with a pocket letter made out of his quotes about writing and/or quotes from books.

8 - Supernatural - But I am not caught up! I've only seen through season 8. I've been slacking.

Snuggles555 04/28/2015 #

Congrats on being in the Top 10 swaps. Good for you! ;-)

user2637 04/29/2015 #

Thanks Snuggles! I totally screen-shot it on my ipod, haha.

user2637 04/29/2015 #

Sadly, I had to remove a couple swappers due to not putting their fandoms in the comments. :( :( :(

Partners assigned.

CajunLady 04/29/2015 #

please do this one again soon!

user2637 05/ 1/2015 #

....maybe I will do it again, but honestly, it was already a lot of work!! Haha. I will probably do a "classic" board games PL next though. :) Feel free to host a Fandom PL!!
