This is what I saw when I opened the box, only there were also bits of purple tissue paper wrapping everything and making it more exciting!
I literally squealed when I saw the handwritten letter addressed to "Minathia-Sedai" My husband thought I was nuts. (not that that's different from the rest of the week in any way lol) It's written as if from one sister to another. There are little gifts from my sister's travels. (Seriously about to squee again here. The geek in me just can not get enough of this little bit of role playing.)
My first hand bound book is in here! I haven't decided what will go in here, but you can bet it will be geeky.
And as if that wasn't enough, the second letter is from the Amyrlin Seat! She sent me angreal to help discover the Black Ajah. They have directions on how to use them and a little bit of what they do and their history. Another bit of roleplaying and creativity that I was NOT expecting and very much love!
The charm bracelets are to signify Mat and Perrin. I <3 those guys way too much, so I'd have to say that's my favorite part. I will be wearing these everywhere!
There are also earrings and matching hair ornaments. They're in my birthstone colors! Very pretty.
And the necklaces! The blue one is pretty, but I've been wanting a tree of life pendant for a long time. What a win there!
I almost forgot to take pictures of what was in the little bags! Some dice for Mat, with the Dark One's Eye on them instead of a single pip. I would use these while gaming if I could convince my DM that they weren't weighted improperly. I'll give it a shot.
Lastly some bookmarks. These are great. They symbolize each of our favorite boys, and that dragon charm is just the right amount of Rand for me. Enough that you remember he's there, but not so much that he starts to get annoying.
So yes. I'm totally spoiled. I really love that my partner and I had different skills. I think that really adds good things to a swap.
Thank you thank you thank you! Know that everything has come to a good home and will be loved.
