mail-exchange

I need a fic where Supergirl and Livewire exchange hate mail regularly…

Kara randomly just receives a postcard from hawaii or new zealand or france saying: Saw you get beat up on the news… your form is off… coming for ya blondie…

Livewire always hangs around long enough to get return mail, usually on the back of a gaudy greeting card that Kara found in some back alley gift shop, filled with a really bad pun and a quip about Supergirl being in top shape…

Then once a year, they meet up… beat the absolute crap out of each other, then part ways…

2 weeks later, Kara receives another postcard from Tahiti… bet you wish you were here instead of in a hospital bed… that was a nasty fall you took… shame you’re bulletproof…

Country: Canada 

I’ve submitted before and met some amazing people and thought why not submit again, hi I’m jenna! A gay girl from canada. I love drawing, music, cats, thrifting, fashion, and of course penpalling. I’m looking for someone to exchange cool snail mail with (letters, drawings, stickers, post cards, candies, zines, that kind of stuff) I love talking about my pet cats, other people’s cats, music, reality tv, lgbtq+ issues, and just life in general! I’m super friendly and easy to talk to so don’t be shy to message me :)

Preferences: Ages 15-22, no homophobes, racists, sexists, trump supporters, or assholes in general

Name: Chloe
Age: 17
Country: USA

Hi! My name is Chloe and I’m from the United States. I’m 17 and right now I’m attending college and working towards my degree. I’ve never had a pen pal before, but I think the idea is really cool and I’d love to get to know someone from another country. I’d really like to send letters, pictures, drawings, etc. back and forth but email works too if you’re not into snail mail :)

I’m not too good at making bios, but I’ll do my best! I’m a huge fan of movies and TV - I love Sherlock, Doctor Who, Hannibal, Bates Motel, Westworld, Stranger Things, and so much more! I’m also really into comics (I’ll love pretty much anything Marvel/DC related) and musical theatre - I actually run a Hamilton blog right now.

Oh! I forgot to talk about books - reading and writing is a huge part of my life, and I couldn’t live without it. I’m a big fan of Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, etc. I’ll read pretty much anything so if you have any books that you think are great, definitely tell me about it!

In general, I’d love someone new to talk to! Even if you only like one of the things I listed off, I’m sure we can talk about it and find out that we have even more in common.

Thanks!
Chloe

Preferences: For the most part, I’m open to talking to anyone! But I’d like to talk to someone open-minded: I’m not interested in talking to someone who’s sexist, racist, or homophobic. I’d like someone to be around the same age as me (16-19) and I’d like to talk to someone who’s also a girl. :)

ExR Interview with George Blagden

George very kindly exchanged e-mails with me while I was working on my dissertation, which focused on Enjolras and Grantaire’s relationship in Les Misérables. I basically wanted to see if it was viable to view their interactions as being indicative of something more intimate than friendship, and extended that to examine the reception of their relationship in online fandom, which is where George comes in! He asked to share this interview on Twitter - his answers are great at exploring an actor’s process, as well as being a really fantastic and valuable contribution to what I was writing about; I’m super excited about sharing his thoughts and I hope you all enjoy reading them!

Hello everyone, I’m Nori! (Excuse my extremely tired face in this picture haha). I’m a 18 year old uni student from the US! I I took a long break from penpaling for some time, but I’m back and I would love to meet some new friends!

My hobbies/interests: I love to travel and learn about other cultures around the globe. I studied in Japan and am currently studying Japanese, so it would be lovely to have someone to study with. I also plan on studying French. I enjoy reading, cooking, singing, fashion, meeting new people, music, etc. I’m a lighthearted and very goofy person! I love to laugh and just have fun 

I would love to have penpals from all over. I would prefer a penpal outside of the US, but if you live in the US thats wonderful too! We can use snail mail, messengers, email, or whatever. I don’t care about race, religion, gender, etc. Please feel welcome messaging me.

PROMOTION - Class Room Pen Pals

Hello! My name is Caroline, I am working towards my degree in Early Childhood Education. 

I am currently student teaching at an after school program, and I would just love for my kids to penpal with an overseas classroom! For obvious reasons, I can’t share a picture of my kids here…but here’s a picture of our classroom.

and here’s a picture of me

(yes, that’s the real White House) 

My class is located just north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States. 

We would prefer to penpal with an English speaking classroom. Since my classroom is after school, I will have the same kids for the next three years…so I’d love to build a lasting relationship with whichever teacher is interested in our penpal project. 

We can either send emails or, (preferably), we can mail letters & postcards. 

Please let me know if you are interested in this!! combemalec @ duq . edu

ELI5: When sending a letter abroad, how does the receiving country's mail service get paid for their work?

There is a global unified postal service body called the Universal Postal Union . The Union creates a framework and standards so that ALL countries can exchange mail freely without forming individual contracts with every other country.

When one pays for the postage for international mail, a portion of the money goes to the home country’s postal service and a portion goes to the destination’s postal service. The portion of money exchanged depends on how much mail (in weight) each country is exchanging. This is set up so that the destination country receives money for delivering the postage. Countries that receive more mail annually get less money per kilogram of mail.

The fee paid to the destination county is called a terminal due.

Explain Like I`m Five: good questions, best answers.

Erin in Sri Lanka

Thank you for your support, everybody!

I have all my injections and typhoid pills. My plane ticket. Got a packing list with some extra little things like face wipes and compression socks for the long flight to and from Dubai.

A couple of weeks ago since it is ACTUALLY happening, I felt a little panicky thinking “I am going HOW far away with people I don’t know?”  This week I exchanged e-mails with one of the veteran volunteers and we donated to one-another’s fundraiser and I felt much better.  

Now I am excited.

Name: Alicia
Age: 16, turning 17 in May
Country: Canada

Hello! I’m looking for someone to exchange snail mail with, preferably from other countries. I’m 16, but some people might call me an ‘old soul’, as I love painting, knitting, sculpting, as well as reading classics, and I watch almost any movie (as long as it’s not a western or romantic comedy, but I’m always looking to give anything a try if someone really suggests it!). I’d love to become good friends with others, and though I’m generally shy, I do consider myself a people person. Hope to talk to you soon!

Preferences: ages 16-18, I’d love to talk to someone from the UK or possibly Australia, but anywhere is fine, no one racist, sexist, homophobic, ect. Preferably someone outside of North America.

My name is Bailey and I’m bad at self advertisement lol. I live in New Mexico, USA. I’m 18 years old and I have no clue what I’m doing with my life, but I do know what I enjoy. Mainly reading. I love cheesy romances and cliches, too. I mean….they’re cliches for a reason.

I am looking for someone to exchange snail mail with.

I also love to hike, draw with crayons, I like American history (specifically the Civil War to the Gilded Age), I like car rides from the hours of 2-4 in the morning, well written fanfiction, writing on occasion (though I can’t say I’m any good lol), I have a love for various TV shows and video games, pens that are smooth to write with, and I love getting letters in the mail.

I’d prefer if you were over 17 and I’m not waiting a month for you to respond. The only standards I have lol.

It’s nice waiting on a letter, even better when it arrives.
If you’re interested please email me at hanselisthemansel@gmail.com!

Group Updates

Now that the member survey has closed, we have taken the gathered feedback into account and have decided to make these updates to the group, most of which will be put into place after the Activity Check on March 18th:

  • A new event blog will be created for the group, so that members can keep better track of the various events at PI!
  • OOC Events is something we implemented in the last major update, but haven’t really done much with since the Secret Santa/Mailing Exchange back in November/December! If any of you have suggestions for OOC events we can hold for the group, feel free to message them to us!
  • We will also be reinforcing the back door muse/revolving muse rule in a stricter capacity! While you may still pick up only one character during an activity period, if you drop one during a period, you may not immediately replace them with the reserve for another character until another full check period passes.
    • To expand on this, we will now only allow new characters to be picked up after Activity Checks. Meaning that, even if all of your characters have reached five posts within the activity period, you will not be able to reserve another one until the Activity Check passes. 
    • If one of your current characters is a new arrival with a star (meaning they haven’t made five posts), you will have to wait another entire check period before reserving another character.
  • As for the matter of special fifth muse permission, you must now have passed two consecutive Activity Checks with all four of your characters (any new arrivals must not have stars in their first check) before being given permission by the mods to reserve a fifth muse.
  • We will now be implementing a Thread Buddy system, for the purpose of promoting activity amongst our members, as well as helping newer members acclimate into the group. More information about this will be detailed in a later post, coming soon!

Things that will not change, based off of majority opinion:

  • As not everyone will be able to switch over, and it is preferred by the majority, the OOC Chatroom will remain in Chatzy and will not be moving over to Discord or other messenger platforms for the time being.
  • The current format of events (one prompt based and one long event per month) will remain the same!
  • Also, the results are in, and it seems Porcoline is the ultimate husbando of 3.14! Congrats, Porco fans~!

We want to thank all of you who did the survey again for your feedback and support! If there are any concerns of yours that you do not see addressed in the post, worry not, for we are keeping them in mind. But for now, these are the updates we will be implementing!

As always, a channel of communication between us and you is always open. If you have any questions, concerns, or simply just want to talk, either message us through the main blog, or directly!

Thank you all, and have a wonderful day.

Hi I’m Honey! I’m 18 and from sunny California. I haven’t had a pen pal in a while and I’m looking for a new one.

My interests: photography, cooking, violin, stationary, (secretly anime)

What I’m looking for: Preferably someone around my age and not someone super close, I’d like to exchange snail mail weekly at most and small packages now and then. I live in a predominantly Asian neighborhood so if you like to try cute new snacks or want to trade cute stationary and pens I’d be glad to ^-^. Mostly just looking for someone to exchange little tidbits about life.

You can contact me on my tumblr @celestial-honey. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hey guys, I’m looking for help with a project! One of my students is a super lovely 70yr lady who is just starting to learn English, and I’m trying to find her a penpal! She has a very elementary knowledge of English, but she’s really eager to learn. If any of you would be interesting in exchanging e-mails with her like twice a month (short, basic e-mails, maybe like one or two paragraphs, talking about friends or activities you like, fun stuff,) hmu!!

Yeah!!! let’s exchange snail mail!

I really like sending and receiving stuff in the mail. I haven’t done anything like this in years and I sorely miss it!

Send me a letter and I will respond! It doesn’t have to be a actual letter because I might not send you an actual letter. I could send you a bunch of poems I like, dried leaves, a collage, a mix cd (once I get myself some blank cds lmao), like 5 pages of information about a random subject, whatever. Maybe I’ll send a book with a ton of weird notes in the margins. A combination of things! Or, you know, I’ll send you an actual letter. It depends on how I’m feeling + what I have on hand at any given moment. So you can send me whatever you want as well! You don’t have to tell me your tumblr URL, although it would be super cool if you did

My address is:

Taylor L

PO Box 28152

Washington, DC 20006

United States

If people actually exchange mail with me I will occasionally post pictures of incoming/outgoing mail! I’ll tag those posts “mail tag”

(Edit): Updated this post with a cleaner image and the correct address

Also, if you send a letter, tell me if you’re interested in receiving anything political! I’m a political science and women’s studies student in Washington DC who has a habit of gathering a bunch of weird feminist political articles/pamphlets and I really like sharing them. I recognize this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea so I’ll try my best to avoid sending anything political. BUT if you’re interested and you tell me you’ll probably end up getting a really niche topic essay with highlights and annotations shoved in with everything else
