The July 2013 Fandom in a Bag swap is Harry Potter, in honor of Harry's, Neville's, and JKR's birthdays.
Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, moments, or any other preference you may have.
Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different items although more is certainly encouraged (PLEASE try to make it look full).
Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, postcards, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.
More specific ideas: Hogwarts acceptance letter, OWL quiz and quill pen, Weasley Wizard Wheezes order form, Marauder's Map, chocolate frog cards, fanfiction drabbles/ficlets, WRock CDs (no mix CDs, as per swap-bot's policy), customized course schedule, wizard candy, tea, recipes for magical treats, mini potions bottles, a diary like Tom Riddle's (but DO NOT include a piece of your/someone else's soul inside), copies of altered Hogwarts school books with your own notes (or notes from different characters) in the margins, Quibbler or Daily Prophit minizines, note/drawing folded into a paper crane, a collection of your favorite quotes.
Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.
Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon (measures AT LEAST 10 inches by 11 inches or 28cm by 26.5 cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).
Assemble your bags during the month of July and please send by the deadline (August 1).
NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be sent straight to Azkaban. No passing go. No collecting 100 galleons.
