Hello there :-)

If you haven't received a swap from me or you are still waiting for a rating, please let me know! It's not in my intention to confuse, hurt or even betray my penpals! So just contact me and I will correct things, whenever a mistake might happen. I will also re-send the swap at once, if necessary.

In return, please do me the same favour and let me know if there are any problems on your side, like a delay in the send-date or lockdown or such things. I'm mostly rating generously, as long, as I can see you put some effort in your swap (for example: I love decorated envelopes XD). And even if this sometimes lack: Swapping is just a hobby and for fun and life can be too busy from time to time, so don't worry. The most important thing for both sides is to have fun.

About Me

A little bit about myself...

I'm Maxi, 30 years old and from Germany. So my mothertongue is German and I'm working to improve my English (while on the other hand I'm about to forget everything I've ever learned in French).

I'm single, have one older sister, but no children and I like to be aunt and babysit once in a while. :-) Finally I'm living in my new flat, where pets are allowed (I always wished for a cat), but than came the second lockdown in Germany and things got delayed. (Dogs are cool, too, but cats are far better! XD)

I like to decorate my letters and put some goodies in, but I'm not used to the fat snail mail I can see here in many swaps. It will probably take its time, until I will try this myself... I'm also far more interested in letters, to be honest. The longer the letter, the better. ;-) I'm also okay with sticker flakes and the dutest or most beautiful always come to some extra box, where I put all the stuff I use for decorating my diary. g - Thanks to the second lockdown and the lack of other spare time activities I might started to get addiccted to stationary, stickers, Washi tapes and such things.

Favorite Music

I like Heavy Metal, Pagan, Steampunk und something called Neue Deutsche Härte (and from time to time songs from musicals or Disney). Some favourite singers/bands are:

  • ASP
  • Coppelius
  • Eisbrecher
  • Faun
  • Subway to Sally
  • Saltatio Mortis
  • Oomph!

My song recommendation of the month: "Loki" by Saltatio Mortis

Favorite Books

That's a lot! I'm a bookworm and love fiction, history novels, classics, murder mystery, thriller... almost anything, aside these typical "How to imprive your life"-books about how to be more hapy, more active, sleep better and so on and aside from love stories. Here is a short list of the latest highlights I've read:

  • "Das Salz der Erde" (Wolf) -> German novel/history
  • "Psychopathinnen" (Benecke) -> German book/crime
  • "Johnathan Strange & Mr Norell" (Clark)
  • "Osten Ard"-Saga (Tad Williams)
  • "Lord of the Rings" (Tolkien)
  • "Paradise Lost" (Milton)
  • "David Copperfield" (Dickens)
  • Oliver Twist" (Dickens)
  • "The count of Monte Christo" (Dumas)
  • "Northanger Abby" (Austen)
  • "Harry Potter 1-7" (Rowling)
  • Horror short stories, like "The Vampyre" by Polidori
  • the "Sherlock Holmes"-short stories by Doyle
  • "The war of the Flowers" (Williams) ...

I also love mangas! I read comics from time to time, too, but I always prefer mangas over it. My favourites are: - "Angel Sanctuary" (Yuki) - "Shaman King" (Takei) - "Pandora Hearts" (Mochizuki) - "The case study of Vanitas" (Mochizuki) - Sailor Moon" (Takeuchi -> It's the best!) - "That time I got reincarnated as a slime" (Fuse)

Favorite Movies

  • Disney-movies (especially the 90s movies like Mulan, The hunchback of Notre Dame, The Lion king, Aladin, but also others that are not as famous as these ones, like The fox and the hound, Brother Bear...)
  • How to train your dragon
  • Marvel (The Avengers, Spiderman, Guardians of the Galaxy, ...)
  • Harry Potter 1-8
  • The Prestige
  • Joker
  • Memoirs of a Geisha
  • Alice in Wonderland (Burton)
  • Detective Pikachu

Good to know for swaps

I'm an easy-going person and even when I don't get exactly what I like, I will still give you a heart, when I can see you tried your best in a swap. Things I don't like, I will reuse in other swaps and I don't have any allergies you need to keep in mind.

I also don't care if you send whole sticker sheets or sheets you cut in half or single stickers. I like them all. I prefer PCs to be send naked (without an envelope), but I'm fine with one also. Only some highlights would be...

... Harry Potter: I like many characters, such as Harry, Hermione, Dumbledore, Malfoy and Snape. In terms of houses it highly depends an my daily mood: On good days I'm according to tests in Ravenclaw, but on cynic ones in Sliytherin.

... tea: I got a lot of chamomille tea lately, so I would prefer to have a break from it, because it will take some time to use it up. ^^°

... TV/book/movie-characters in general: I like Sherlock and Moriaty, Sailor Moon and Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto, Dipper and Bill, Steven universe and his mother Rose/pink diamond (but Spinell and White are cool, too), Aang and Zuko, Conan Edogawa, Luz and Amity and Eda, Spiderman and Loki, Batman and the Joker, Vanitas, Oz and Gil and many more. My favourite pokémon are bulbasaur, psyduck, Mew, Mewtwo and wooloo (yeah, I've been grown up with the first generation g).

Comment: I received your wonderful package today, thank you for all the goodies you chose for me! I've already worn the bracelet so it gives some colour to my black outfit hahah Thank you for the pens, the card, the mask and the pictures to decorate, I love everything :) and Slytherin 4 ever :b
Response: I'll do it the same way: I also usually wear black and than add a bracelett or something else, often a scarf, to bring at least some colour to the outfit, but most often its also enough for me. XD Enjoy! :-)

Comment: Thank you for the notecard, Maxi :) I didn't realise how long it's been since I read anything by Terry Pratchett until you asked for my favourite character and no character immediately came to mind! Outrageous, I'll remedy it as soon as possible! I do love reading about the witches though ^^ And, beautifully decorated envelope, thank you :)
Response: Oh no, what a terribly emergency! You have to read one as soon as possible! XD

MuggleMom rated for Harry Potter letter #60 on Jun 12, 2021
Comment: 💕 💕 this made me jump for joy and then broke me apart at the same time!! I love what you (Severus) wrote to Lily!! I had the same idea for the swap but I've never been able to pull it off so I haven't even tried. YOURS IS BRILLIANT!! I got emotional at the last sentence - knowing that Snape "proved his friendship" OMG, too perfect! If I should be so lucky to have you as a partner again I will be over the moon (wink to Lupin)!! Loved the envelope and all the extra goodies. This made my day - thank you so much! xxMuggleMom
Response: Hello, I'm glad you like it and after I got the idea, I was so hooked up with it, that I just had to try it out! XD That's always a story part I would have love to read/see in the movie. Have a great day and thanks for the heart! ^.^

Chantiemaya rated for Letter in a notecard #2 Int'l on Jun 2, 2021
Comment: Thanks for the great card Maxi! I absolutely love the MCU! My fave had to be Iron Man, but I also got a soft spot for Black Panther. I am not familiar enough with DC to know their villains really, but one thing they win on is that they have Wonder Woman :D thanks again and have a great day!!
Response: Thanks for the heart and have a great day! :-) And yes, the MCU is truly addicctive! XD
