    Do you have a favorite decade in history? If you could time-travel, when/where would you go?
    Hmm... decade? can we make that century?
    I studied Great Britain in the Anglo-Saxon period and Middle Ages, so I'd love to confirm and experience a few things, and see all. the. manuscripts. So, let's say, mid-14th to mid-15th century? Also I would love to have a peak at the prehistorical era, to see how humans actually lived at the time. There is so much we don't know.

    Giftee, do you have any specific requirements for jewelry?
    I prefer pure metals: sterling silver, gold, copper. I like necklaces with pendants, and little earrings. Natural motifs or stones (preferably polished, not rough). I wear studs or small dangle earrings. No hoops or large danglies.

    And how do you feel about notebooks/journals?
    Yes too both. I like them all. Notebooks with a pretty cover and average paper get used for everyday work notes, and notebooks with amazing paper get used for journaling (I write with a fountain pen).

    Is there anything I can make that you'd love? Fandom-inspired essential oil blend? Some DIY recipe you're interested in but don't have the stuff on hand to make?
    I love your selkie detangler (and its scent!). I don't wear perfume because my skin makes commercial scents go 'sour'. I'd be interested in oil-based/solid perfume, but I have a hard time describing the scents I like. Think bergamot, citrus, light florals, sandalwood... Something bright and fresh.

    For the thing that's a reflection of me, I thought about including a copy of my book, but I'm not sure if you read fantasy. Would this interest you? (I will not be offended if you say no!)
    I do read fantasy! Although I tend to prefer fantasy that is not linked to our world (think completely imaginary settings and worlds; for stuff set in our world I much prefer historical fiction ), which is why I haven't picked up a copy of your book yet.

    favorite candy? Soft caramel
    favorite dessert? Too hard! Let's say raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. You'll get a different answer tomorrow.
