Mountie Mail is the mountaineer mail network. Founded in 2018 by @Revenir as a way to connect the vast reaches of the Mountaineers. Mountie Mail is a penpaling network that happens every month. Anyone is welcome to sign up! While mountie mail isn’t inherently in-world, but you are free to include as many in-world elements in your letters or packages as you’d like. Let your creativity soar!
Nothing quite beats getting a letter or package crafted specifically for you. In these difficult times, staying connected is more important than ever. Especially here in America, where the USPS is seriously struggling, sending a little analog aether love is a great way to support one another.
How does it work?
Every month there will be a random pairing of everyone who signs up. This will essentially be like pulling names out of a hat. Once you have been paired with someone read their sign up post and pm them to exchange postal information.
The mailout day is the 15th of every month.
How do I sign up?
Post below with a brief introduction and a few facts and preferences. Ya know, conversation starters. You can talk about music tastes, artistic interests, TV shows, movies, etc. This way the mountie writing to you can have a bit of information when writing your letter. For example:
My name is Oracle, I am 17, and I am an Eraverane-bearing Gossmere. I go to school for creative writing and I have a passion for multi-media storytelling. I have an obsession with all things bear and bee related. My music taste is mostly indie pop and folk. For example, I listen to a lot of Grizfolk, Melanie Martinez, and Paramore. I am a big coffee lover, I also enjoy baking and have recently picked up weaving and embroidery.
Once you have posted your biography you don’t have to post it again to sign up. In the last week I will post a little reminder to see who wants to sign up for that months pairing, and a simple reply with “I’m in!” will do
What do I send?
From a letter to a full care package, there’s a lot of flexibility as to what you can send. You can also garner inspiration from your monthly penpals sign up post. Here are some ideas:
- Pressed Flowers
Along with all this we will be selecting a community suggested prompt or theme for every month This will be posted at the beginning of the month
