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.

My favorite characters are Luna Lovegood, Dobby, Sirius Black, Hermione, Ron, and Bellatrix, though you can't really go wrong with any of the characters for me. I love the marauders map and snitches, and would say my favorite book is The Order of the Phoenix.

KateKintail 06/21/2013 #

I always sort Hufflepuff house. I love magical plants & animals. I love astronomy. And I would be terrible at potions.

My favorite characters are: Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, the trio, Neville Longbottom, the Weasleys (even Perce but especially the twins and Charlie), Oliver Wood, Cedric Diggory, Hagrid, Hedwig, James & Lily, Snape (ask if you want more. I could easily give you upon request a list of my top 100 favorite characters or pairings LOL)

I love anything HP-related with my username on it. I also listen to a lot of Wizard Rock, so if you happen to listen to it also, I'd adore a playlist/list of your favorite songs (but not an actual mix CD, because it's against the swap-bot rules and Hufflepuffs always play by the rules).

OH! And the Marauders in general. Anything even vaguely Maraduers Map-like or anything with a dog, wolf, stag, and rat on it I fangirl hard! I LOVE the Marauders. But especially Remus Lupin. He's my ultimate favorite.

I love the castle. I love Quidditch. I love owls. I love LEGO HP (I have all the HP sets, but I make massive HP creations out of LEGO and can always use repeats/bits&pieces). I love plushies/stuffies/cute, soft things I can cuddle. Also, my patronus is probably a moth. I love slashy hurt/comfort fanfic and am always happy to get recommendations in that genre. And I love Remus Lupin. In case I didn't mention that already.

My favorite characters are Draco, Snape, Dobby, Hermione and Bellatrix. I like all the other charcters too, so you could never really go wrong.

I love the Deathly Hallows and Goblet of Fire.

Anything that has to do with the books, ghosts and house elves, fanfics, bookmarks, or anything like that I would LOVE.

Cool items that are like they are out of the world are awesome. (I have an stuffed owl and snitch that my son loves to play with).

Slythern and Ravenclaw are my favorite houses.

Any other questions just ask. This is all I can think of right now. :)

milla444 06/22/2013 #

Hmm what could I say.. My absolute favorite character is Sirius Black. My favorite book is the Order of the Phoenix. I'm not such a big fan of the movies (most of the actors just doesn't look like how I've imagined the characters to look :/)..

But I give my partner free hands and if you have some questions you can ask more :)

Although I'm a HP-Fan, I join this Swap mainly for my nearly 8 Year old son. He only knows the first book and Film, but knows about most of the characters, mostly from his HP Lego. (He also has the Lego HP Enzeclopedia - is this spelled correctly? - by DK Books.) He loves the Trio of course, Hagrid, Dumbledore, Hedwig, Dobby, the creatures of the forbidden Forest (Except the spiders!) the Weasley-Twins and Charly with the Dragons, Norbert the ridgeback, the Chocolate-Frogs, Mr. & Mrs. Weasley, Oliver Wood, Madam Hooch, the Troll. He loves the Hogwarts Express, the Castle, Quidditch - he'd Love to have a snitch! - and the snapping Book of monsters, Diagon Alley, olivanders and Gringots, the Knightbus, Honeydukes Sweetshop.... He loathes him who shall not be named, the Malfoys, the bad Guys in general, every single Spider, and Bertie Botts every Flavor beans. He told me to tell you that he badly needs the lego Diagon Alley ;o) just in Case one of you wins the lottery ....... He has his own Amazon Wishlist with some HP-Stuff, if you are assigned to us, please PM me and I send you his Full Name and the link to his wishlist - not to make you buy the stuff, but to Five you an idea. I'M writing this from my Phone and Autocorrect is killing me - just ignore all the funny stuff :o)

Mello 06/25/2013 #

Mmm....it should say GIVE you an idea - like I wrote, funny stuff, just ignore it.

aprilivy 06/30/2013 #

My favorite characters are Hermione, Snape, Sirius, The Weasley Twins, Draco, Lucius, Neville and Luna.

My favorite book is Prisoner of Azkaban.

My house would definitely be Ravenclaw but Slytherin is okay too, I won't complain. I just like to think of myself as a Ravenclaw with Slytherin influences. :)

I'm actually, surprisingly, just reading the books now, for the first time. I'm currently at the end of Prisoner of Azkaban. So I can't say for sure which is my favourite so far. But I do know who my favourite characters are (especially since, after watching the movies, I rather obessively researched them), Hermione, Snape (He's my favourite, I think. I like sarcastic, brooding types), Remus Lupin, Neville, Hagrid and Luna (I also adore Bellatrix's style!). I enjoy most of the characters, except for Ron...I'm really, really not a fan of him :/ Beyond that, I'm a very big fan of anything all the creatures in the books and movies (Aragog, Fluffy, Buckbeak, Fawkes, etc), and plant life (Whomping Willow, Mandrakes...). I would love something Marauders map themed, Potions themed, or library themed (I would, like Hermione, spend as much of my free time in there as possible). I've always been tested with Ravenclaw, and completely agree with that. My patronus would probably be a bat.

thekittenparty 07/ 1/2013 #

So excited to participate in this one!

Fav. characters: Neville (!!!!!!!), Snape, Dumbledore, Harry, Arthur Weasley, McGonagall, Luna.

Random Potterverse likes: potions, magical books, creatures and plants, wands, owls and cats, Hogwarts and its grounds, animagi,

Other likes: realistically-styled Potterverse things (as opposed to cartoon-y, bright things I guess!) , fan art, plushes, The Half-Blood Prince (it holds a special place in my heart because it was the first one I read as it came out), bad-on-purpose snarky fan fiction, my Patronus would be a fat kitten (haha)

I'm pretty into HP, so I have a lot of the licensed things that came out like action figures, stickers, shirts, LEGO sets and the like (so please don't hesitate to ask me if you are thinking about purchasing something). I'm super into handmade things too if you're so inclined. :)

Cabootique 07/ 1/2013 #

I love Harry Potter so much :)

My favorite characters are: Ron, Fred and George, Snape, and Harry.

I have always been partial to Ravenclaw, but I do love all of the houses. My patronus would probably be a cat.

My favorite book (and movie) is The Goblet of Fire. I love everything to do with the classes, creatures and pets, wands, and Hogwarts. The shops at Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley make me very happy and interested :)
