Details of Swap...
Following on from our hugely successful Hogfather and Springtime on Discworld swaps, I present 'Fall-ing for Pratchett', a swap to celebrate this most spooky of seasons (and also, 'Making Money' and 'Wit and Wisdom of the Discworld' [which I suspect Conley wrote, so gifted is she at remembering all those wonderful Nanny-isms] both come out on September 24th!)  Think vampyres rising through the Lancre mists, Vimes huddled beneath his oilskin cloak as the Ankh Morpork drizzle threatens to dampen his cigar, a new intake of first years for the Guilds and freshers at UU.   

Swap Requirements...
Really, this is up to you and your partner to agree, but I have asked for an indication in the questionnaire so I can pair people up.  As always, I like a lot of communication between partners in my swaps, and this will be reflected in your feedback. 

If you would like to participate, complete the information and send to esmerelda, putting Discworld Swap in the subject line. Please, do not post answers in this thread, but I would be grateful if you could all post 'I'm in' or something here.

Questionnaire to Answer...

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name?
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Do you have any allergies (pets/smoke/etc)?
And do you live in a house with pets/smoke/etc?

Discworld question
1. Discworld character you identify with most and why?
2. Other favourite characters?
3. Characters you dislike (unlikely, I know, but thought I would ask)?
4. Favourite Discworld location (Lancre, A-M, Uberwald)?
5. Any favourite quotes?

Personal preferences and crafting
1. Colours you like?
2. Colours you dislike?
3. What would be the one thing that you would really, really want to receive (y'know, if your partner was a genie and could guarantee the one thing you really, really wanted)?
4. What crafts can you do?
5. What can you do without/have too many of/dislike?
6. Any further information that youd like to share?
7. Would you like to send a Luggage's worth of goodies, enough to fill Nanny's knickers bag, or just enough to fit in Nobby's pocket?

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Heh. I don't know if it's proper to be talking about Nanny's knickers and Nobby's pockets without a mature audience warning. o_O

ETA: Heh.

Hmmm, I doubt anything would stay shiny around Nobby for long...

I really really need to sign up for this, but I need to get some free swap spaces first *clicks fingernails on desk impatiently*
