I'm part of many fandoms, and I love connecting with fellow fans, so I thought it would be nice to set up a swap especially for this purpose!

You will have 2 partners for this swap. You will be writing each of your partners a letter of at least two A4 pages (you may use smaller paper, just adjust page number accordingly). Write a short introduction of yourself, then talk about your fandom(s). How you got into fandom, what is it that makes you love your fandom(s), favourite characters, what you like about them, are there any fanworks you love, do you create fanworks etc. It shouldn't be all that difficult to fill a couple of pages with love for your fandom(s), I hope? You may include a flat surprise but it is not required (if you do, please check your partners profile for dislikes and allergies!).

Obviously due to the way swap-bot works you may get someone who doesn't share your fandom(s) - but I think this will be part of the fun, perhaps you will discover something new to love! Or you may find someone who shares your love for something. Either way, we will hopefully make some new friends!

This swap is open to those with a 4.95 rating or higher. I'm allowing for newbies to join, but please have a well filled out profile, I will check. Participants need to have logged into swap-bot in the week before signups close. I will angel, but hopefully it won't come to that!

If you have any questions or concerns, please comment here or message me (for concerns about possible flakers, please message).

Excuse my naivety, but what is a fandom please?

@JenniferB It's the social interactions of fans of a common interest like a tv show, movie, band, sports team etc. where they share their enthusiasm for that interest. More or less. :)

(Wikipedia has a better explanation than me!)
