About Me

Update: I know I haven't been here in some time! I've been teaching in China where I've found the post to be far too inconsistant to send swaps. However I'm back in the UK now and am excited to begin swapping again.

I absolutely love letters and little gifts!

I love writing, reading, making things, drawing , and letters. I'm a polyamorous queer who loves litreature. I particularly enjoy classical Greek, renaissance, Victorian and contemporary Literature. I am also a giant nerd and love fantasy and sci-fi, my favourites being Transformers and Mass Effect (and alien/galaxy/fantasy aesthetics not connected to particular franchises). I also enjoy things related to Christian mythology (plays, literature, fall narratives etc...), weird animals.

I also love gothic aesthetics and love goth and vintage style things.

Favorite Books

My favourite books and plays are:

  • The Three Musketeers/D'Artagnan trilogy

  • Milton's Paradise Lost

  • Wise Children by Angela Carter

  • Most poetry by Carol Ann Duffy

  • Marlowe's Doctor Faustus and Edward II

  • Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream and Twelfth Night

  • Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts

Likes and dislikes

On swap bot I love hearing about people, the ins and outs of their lives, strange (or even mundane) things you get up to, your pets, your habits, traditions. My favourite things to receive and unusual or incredibly personal things where someone has clearly tried in this limited way to get to know me (some of my most treasured swap items I have received have been an amazing plushie Garrus Vakarian someone MADE for me and an ATC of an alien in a halloween costume!)

For some specifics of what I like see below:


  • My favourite colours are black, purple, green and grey.

  • Pride themed things, rainbows and other flags and such. Bonus points for not just gay and lesbian themed stuff, transgender and non-binary pride particularly (I know people who would really appreciate seeing this stuff, and I much prefer LGBT+ stuff when it includes /everyone/, not just the L and the G).

  • Mental health wellness/activism related things.

  • Victorian gothic. I am very much a goth and like all things gothy, black, red, purple, lace, velvet, Victorian style things etc...

  • Animal specimens provided they were obtained humanely (so found dead or died in captivity- not killed). By this I mean feathers, insect specimens (of all kinds- from butterflies to scorpions to flies to beetles) and animal bones.

  • Furry/antro animal theme stuff.

  • Cool alien/robots/bizarre fantasy creatures

  • Cool monsters

  • Sci fi themed stuff. I prefer generic sci fi (like aliens, robots, spaceships, space etc... rather than anything within the sci fi genre like Doctor Who etc... I don't watch that, the exceptions of course being in my fandoms). The more weird/twisted the better (although things like cute robots are also welcome). .

  • Taxidermy/anatomically correct, Victorian/Twisted medicine theme.

  • Insect themed things.

  • Mushrooms and toadstool/foresty themed things

  • Fantasy related things e.g things to do with dragons, faeries, unicorns (but they don't have to be). Anything cryptozoology related is awesome, in fact that less common the better.

  • Rats, hedgehogs, raccoons, ferrets

  • Brads in general. Metallic charms/jewelry trinkets and related items.

  • Fandom related things, whether handmade or bought, I would love!. Fandoms I like things of are:

    • Mass Effect (Especially Saren, Nihlus, Garrus, Fem Shepard, Aria and Liara)

      • Repo! The genetic opera and The Devil's Carnival

      • Classic Literature theme things, particularly Shakespeare, Marlowe (Doctor Faustus!) and Paradise Lost.

      • The Three Musketeers (My absolute favourite is Aramis)

      • Dragon Age 2 (I've only finished the 1st act though so please no spoilers.) My favorite characters are Isabella, Cassandra, Fenris, Anders and F! Hawke.

      • Steven Universe (any of the gems, but especially Amethyst and Jasper and Pearl, I really love Blue Pearl).

      • Transformers comics and cartoons (Not the Michael Bay live action movies I hate those) (For those interested my preferences here are The Transformers Prime cartoon, MTMTE, Spotlight Megatron and Megatron origin. My favourite characters are MEGATRON, Starscream (all versions), Knockout, Pharma, Soundwave, Drift/Deadlock, Rodimus/Hot Rod, any of the DJD especially Tarn and Nickel, Whirl, Cyclonus, Tailgate. Pretty much any characters other than Optimus and Bumblebee would delight me though.

      • Animal Crossing

I am a huge nerd and love all of it whether it's something to do with the thing- art or even just you talking about it.

  • Things related to Midsummer Night's Dream or most Shakepeare plays or other literature.

  • I also have a special penchant for Milton's Satan from Paradise Lost (and other versions of Satan). I'm not a Satanist nor do I believe in Satan- I just like his character and so art/ATCs or other related things would really be appreciated.

  • ATCs to do with things I like. Or any art/hand made things especially to do with things I like.

  • Lush items. Especially things in pots or bottles rather than soap bars (but I wouldn't complain about these either!)

-The crude, the rude, things containing swearing, "naughtiness", anything with nudity, particularly queer/ kinky stuff. (Just don't send me dick pics... obviously. Artistic photos/drawings/crafts of dicks are totally fine just don't take a photo of your own dick and send it to me... please. This has happened on here).


  • Any form of hate, homophobia, transphobia, racism. These people are among the worst sorts of people.

  • Anything with gelatine in, this is not an exception, I'm a pescitarian so can't eat it.

  • Needlessly "cutesy" and "girly pink" aesthetics.

  • Memo pads. They're cool but I have about a million.

  • Commercial Christmas themed stuff- writing to me about your religion and traditions is awesome (in a non-pushy way) but I have no use for things like christmas theme stickers/lettersets/washi tape.

  • Temporary tattoos

  • Make up

  • Generally romantic or teen fiction isn't my thing in books like Twilight and such. Unless it's something really special books in general might be a bad idea because if there's something I want to read I'll borrow it from the library or will already have bought it myself.

  • Mars products

  • Clowns and cherubs

  • Generic gothy skulls, although interesting, arty and anatomically correct style ones are awesome though.

  • Earrings

  • Things depicting alcohol, or to be used with alcohol (such as pictures of champagne bottles or beer cozies). I rarely drink so these things have no interest to me.

  • Really chunky metal jewelry

Food likes and dislikes

I've been doing an increasing number of food swaps so I decided to include this section in my profile!


  • Stuff that is strange or something I wouldn't be able to get (or get easily) where I am.

  • Maple syrup flavour candy

  • Chocolate, of almost every kind, but I far prefer chocolate with something in it rather than just plain.

  • Caramel

  • Foods that I can't get in my country

  • Tea, coffee, hot chocolate

  • Cakey/biscuity products. They're not always the best to post but sealed packets tend to work quite well

  • Pretzels

  • Interesting ready to make/eat savoury products.

  • Christmassy food, in the case of food, my scroogyness is reversed. I love christmassy food.


  • Anything with gelatine in

  • Mars products

  • Liquorice and banana flavours

Comment: Lenore, I love every single item you sent me! My favourite item is the Camden Underground postcard/flyer. Itโ€™s such a unique and cool little piece of memorabilia. Itโ€™s also a coincidence, since Iโ€™m currently reading a book about The Strokes. Iโ€™ll have to find a way to get that strawberry cucumber tea here in Canada, as Iโ€™m now completely addicted. Thank you so very much!!!

Comment: Thank you for the nice mail! :)
Response: You're welcome!
Comment: I am so sorry to have to tell you this but the envelope broke apart and many items were lost in the post. The Postal service tried their best obviously as they had taped it partially closed but there was still a large hole - it's difficult when you make an envelope of two different materials . Luckily I still recieved the most important thing, your BEAUTIFUL embroidery ๐Ÿ˜ as well as one of the teas (chinese green tea), the note with the list of what you originally included, the notepad, the stickers, and a few mung bean lollies. I feel happy because of your kind mail, but I also feel sad to miss out on the recipe cards and poem, and three of the teas you kindly sent for me. In future remeber to reinforce the edges of your envelopes with making tape or packing tape! ๐Ÿ’–

Hi Lenore, I'm your partner for the Fantasy Nude ATC swap. I just wanted to let you know, your envelope was mailed today. I hope it arrives to you safely and quickly. I think I may have mispelled your name in my note, I apologize in advance. I hope you like the ATCs. Have a good day! ~Stevie-Lynn

I am not a fan of realistic raccoons, so I chose cartoon type images for this swap. Enjoy!

Raccoon pics for you!
