This swap's theme is: Once Upon A ... Letter in a Bottle!

They walk upon the shoreline, in a different part of the world… Picking up the ocean-swept bottle, they find a message unfurled…

For this swap you will write a letter designed to be placed in a bottle and sent out into the ocean. It can be set at any time in the past and in any part of the world. The letter should be two A5 pages long at a minimum, and you must also include an item such as a photograph/object/map/drawing which is referred to in the letter.

Think about when in time this might have been written. What might your character have been going through that made them write this letter and send it out with no guarantee of it ever being found? Maybe it’s a final attempt at a cry for help. Maybe it tells a secret no one there must know. Maybe it declares a forbidden love. Or perhaps it is simply wistful musings written whilst reclining on the beach on a thoughtful day

Whilst it is okay to delve into slightly darker themes for this letter such as someone whose country is at war etc. Do NOT include any specific descriptions/details of death, horror, or traumatic events.

Please consider decorating your envelope a little too - it always adds an extra touch of excitement and magic!

This swap is for people with 4.95 rating min. and those under 4.98 will be reviewed prior to partners being allocated to ensure no recent 1s or 3s. Please rate a 5 if you receive a swap with a two page letter and a relevant accompanying item. Hearts are up to you.

I will angel flakers after a reasonable amount of time has passed (shipping can take quite a while overseas!) and once the flaker has been rated a 1.
