About Me

I absolutely love letters and little gifts!

I love writing, reading, making things, drawing , and letters. I'm a polyamorous lesbian and an English Literature student in university and 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:

  • 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:

Likes-

  • My favouriete colours are black, purple, red and grey. Silver and green are also wonderful.

  • 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.

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

  • Speaking of creepy... I love 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

  • 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).

  • Space themed things.

  • 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.

  • Pagan things

  • 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.

      • 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).

Dislikes:

  • 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. (like hello kitty and diddl, cartoon flowers and such).

  • I'm also not so keen on yellow, bright orange and bright green in large amounts. And gold.

  • 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!

Likes:

  • 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

-`I far prefer receiving coffee and hot chocolate than tea to be honest, but I do enjoy teabags in smaller swaps.

  • 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. I'm a uni student so this is always welcome.

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

Dislikes:

  • Anything with gelatine in

  • Mars products

  • Salty nuts

  • Wasabi (other spice is fine)

  • Liquorice and banana flavours

Comment: Whenever I think about ferrets, I always remember that they were illegal to own in the city (possibly the whole state) where I grew up. Don't know if that's still the case or not. Thank you for sharing!

Comment: Super cool, I love ladies and feel like there need to be more of them in transformers. I think thats why I wasn't interested in it as a kid cause of the lack of females. She almost reminds me of Sailor mars from sailor moon <3
Response: Yeah!! A few have been introduced lately and I'm really pleased about that!! Glad you liked the ATC!

from: Melissa (mchesser12)

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

Raccoon pics for you!
