Hi, everyone! I want there to be more newbie-friendly opportunities to rack up ratings before the December mail rush. There are SO MANY swaps right now that you need to have ratings to join. I'd love to help some people beat the clock.

I hope this swap is easy and fast for everyone!

What is your favourite fairy or folk tale? Why is it your favourite?

This one is online-only so it can go anywhere easily. You can message through Swap-bot if you like. You have TWO partners.

Write a short note, 1 paragraph (5-7 sentences) about things like how old were you when you read or heard it, what you like about it, what you don't like, if it brought up any feelings like being scared or romantic or wanting to solve a problem.

Include a link to the folktale if you have one online, OR summarize the story if there isn't an easily found copy online.

Internet Archives often has whole books for free, you just can't download them. You might be able to find the exact story from the exact book you have! Just google the title + Internet Archives.

Everyone! If you didn't like the story selection, do NOT rate down. If you received the link + the paragraph in your messages, on time, it's a 5. If you loved the story picked and they wrote a lot about it, consider a heart. This is a swap to be newbie-friendly.

If there are subjects that will offend you, you may want to comment that on this post.

If there are some very restrictive measures, such as only Xtian stories or no magic or monsters, be aware that your partner may not be able to easily share a story that you may enjoy. It is not intended to be a google suggestion algorithm. Please do not rate down if your partner fulfills the swap 1 message (5-7 sentences) + 1 story.

This is so great thank you! I swap all of the time on discord and was hoping to add extra swaps for the holidays but didn’t realize there is a rating system! I understand why there is one but trying to find some ways to get ratings so i can participate! Thank you!

@SweetlyDeceptive - I agree, I mean, it makes sense to have ratings to say a new user can't, say, join a very involved swap or one of those big 20-person swaps on the first few tries, and then be set up to fail. It doesn't make sense for EVERY swap to be 4.98 stars and up, even if it's... a postcard???

If I can't "angel" it (sending mail in case someone else doesn't/can't) I won't host it. I was a new user, too. I couldn't join ANYTHING! ugh.

Nope. I have time this year and we could probably all expand our horizons a bit. Let's rack up some great ratings and have fun.
