Description:

The April 2015 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is Game of Thrones.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, books, movies, 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 5 different types of items although more is certainly encouraged. (PLEASE try to make it look full). Different types of items means 5 ATCs, 3 pins, 2 postcards would be 10 items but only 3 different types. The swap requirement is for 5 different types in a bag.

Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, legal music CDs, charms, ornaments, bookmarks, address labels, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fanfic drabbles/ficlets, etc.

More specific ideas: dragon eggs, handdrawn map, raven with message, dire wolf plushie, guide on how to cope with your favorite character's death, etc.

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 quart (AT LEAST 8.5inches by 7 inches or 21.5cm by 18cm). 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 quart 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 April and please send by the deadline (April 30)

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be... well, you can imagine their grisly deaths; suffice it to say the will never get the throne.

Hello all! I have all of the books in paperback, except for the short stories and the World of hardcover book. Dany, John Snow, Brianne of Tarth, Tyrion, Littlefinger, Arya, and Sansa are my favorite characters.

If I was in a House it would be House Targaryen, for sure.

I probably won't use the little figurines, but the pop ones I do like.

Get creative! And feel free to message me if you need some ideas. (:

Also I love the Onion Knight! Didn't want to forget him, haha.

Oooh I so wish this was the big baggie :( My profile has my pinterest link where I have a "TV/Books" inspiration folder if you wanna check it out ;)

** I love Jaqen H'Ghar --- i think I have a quote of his in my pinterest

** Tyrion, Dany, Brienne, Jaime, Varys, Bronn, Olena and even that BEEP Cersei. I love them all, but these are my tops :)

** I can't pick a house favorite, I'd be thrilled with anything here!

** I'd especially love as many handmade items as you feel like doing, in any medium, I just love the uniqueness of handmade :). Pouch, mugrug/coaster, mini hoop/art, TM patch, whatever...it doesn't even have to be character-specific, could be the animals, castle, lands, chopped-off hand, anything lol. Ok ok, I would freak for felt/fabric house patches and/or anything that shows the different lands (fabric/art/embroidered map).

Hope I'm not scaring anyone away, I'm pretty easy to please, I just got a bit overexcited! The only things I'd rather not receive are books, totes and journals...I have tons :).

I love the tv series! I have not read any of the books, though someday I will take the plunge.

My favorite characters: Robb Stark (I am in love with him 100%), Dany, Tyrion, Sansa, Jon Snow, Oberyn, Arya, Brienne, Jamie.

House Stark all the way!

I like both handmade and purchased items, though DIY has a certain specialness. :) Magnets, figurines, posters, House patches, pins/brooches(!), maps, coasters, mugs...anything you can think of! I work at a desk all day, so something I can put on my desk or the back wall would be welcome.

I'm definitely House Lannister! I love them, i love Cersei and her bad ass attitude!! I've always liked the bad guys in shows. I love Tyrion he 's definitely my favourite on the show! Hes just so cocky and adorable ahaha. My other favourite character Daenerys Targaryen (khaleesi) and her dragons!! My favourite thing i own is the pop vinyl figure of her i don't own any of the other ones but i've been searching for the one of Tyrion! I also love love love Robb Stark i miss him. I love him alot!!

My favourite quote from game of thrones is "my sun and stars moon of my life. "

I haven't read the books I'm just obsessed with the t.v show.

I would love anything to do with Game Of Thrones, but I don't want any books cause i've seen the show i wont ever read the books.

TheGraceMartin 03/31/2015 #

I have yet to read the books as I won't read a series until the last book is published but I adore the show!

Iabsolutely love Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons! I am house Targaryen for sure! Anything to do with her and the dragons would be perfection!

I also love Robb Stark and Arya Stark, as well as Jon Snow. Ooh and Brienne is lovely!

Dream wish list item is the Daenerys POP figure but no worries if you can't find her.

I love homemade items of good quality. The last Fandom in a bag swap I did my partner sent me a lot of scraps and I ended up throwing most of it away. :( Just send me something you're proud of and I'm sure I'll love it! I love ATCs and journals.

Feel free to message me with any questions!

I am entering this for my father, who loves Games of Thrones. I will probably save the items and give them to him for Father's Day or Christmas, as I'm terrible at finding him good gifts that time of year. If you need to personalize anything, let me know and I'll send you his info.

He likes the series as a whole. He is NOT a big reader, but Game of Thrones the TV show has actually made him read the books!! He has several scarfs, a book of maps, the 3D map puzzle, house coasters, and a card game. I believe he likes the houses of Stark and Targaryen best, but he likes the whole series overall. Anything storebought or handmade would be magnificent (he appreciates crafts--especially pottery) or a mix of items. I don't know the fandom too well but if you have any questions, please message me and I'll call my mother to see if she can get the answer out of my dad without making the reason too obvious! ;-)
