The July 2015 Fandom in a Bag swap is Harry Potter

Step 1: Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, shows, books, 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 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 7 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, 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 about 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 (July 31).

NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be sent straight to Azkaban. No passing go. No collecting 100 galleons.

I have a TON of HP things already... if you are worried about repeats, send me a message. But I have a lot of HP-loving people in my local group & life so I am sure I can find any repeat item a loving home no matter what. That being said, I love unique, handmade things.

Things I love: Remus Lupin, Marauders, Hufflepuff, anything with DADA on it (DADA is the name of my local meetup group for which I am assistant organizer), Quidditch, Oliver Wood, Wizard Rock, Accio charm, HP LEGO, Dumbledore's Army group, Order of the Phoenix group, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban book (especially the Shrieking Shack scene)

Wish list: Owl post rubber stamp, Hogwarts wax seal, ideas for more of my "Cards Against Humanity/Apples to Apples" Harry Potter game question/answer cards (message me if you want to know more about this!)

Do not want: chocolate (it's July! It will melt in the mail!)

I am a Hufflepuff forever and so proud of that fact. <3

I love: Dobby, Dumbledore, Hermione Granger, Nearly Headless Nick, Neville Longbottom, Severus Snape, Sirius Black, Slughorn, and the Weasleys!

My favorite books/movies are: Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, and Half-Blood Prince.

My patronus is a swan.

I would love some ATCs to add to my Harry Potter page! <3

I love anything to do with the series. I agree with no chocolate due to the summer heat wave here. I just saw the play Potted Potter and I love that too!

Juliagolia87 06/29/2015 #

I am a hufflepuff - I ship dramione and yeah chocolate is a no go for me way too hot! I will glad love anything you send! I do collect atcs and adore handmade items!

raesha 06/29/2015 #

OH gosh!!!! I don't think there's anything about HP that I don't like. I especially love our main three of Harry, Hermione and Ron. I love Dobby, Dumbledore and Snape. My patronus is a fox. I have a wand but would love another one. And I'm gryffindor all the way.

Chocolate is also a no go for me - desert heat will melt it! I don't have any specific HP wishes but I love handmade items and I love all the great quotes from the books.

KateKintail 06/29/2015 #

Adding to my list... I adore Charlie Weasley and Neville Longbottom. I also have a bunch of favorite slash pairings I ship (message me if you want details). And my patronus is a moth :-)

JediLibrarian 07/ 1/2015 #

I love HP! My office at the library came with a life size Dobby who get into all sorts of mischief! I do a regular HP fandom program for the teens so things that I can share with them is always welcome!

I am a Ravenclaw but I also love Gryffindor. Luna, Hermione, Professor McGonagall, Sirus Black, Harry and Hedwig are my character favorites.

Wishes: I love earrings and lanyards that I can wear to work. Owl anything, bookmarks, buttons, stuffies or fun handmade things. Luna Lovegood glasses or radish earrings would be so cool but don't feel like you have to find them.

I'm also a no go on food due to a zillion allergies and the heat destroys things in my mailbox. I also have a wand and several homemade wands from programs at work.

I don't know what my patronus is :(

My house is Ravenclaw. My favorite spells are Riddikulus, Reparo, and Portus. I don't any favorite characters and scenes, they're all equally great to me! I have a wand, two house scarves. I espectally like pc charms or items I can use to decorate my desk/collectable shelf! No chocolate, but jellybeans would be fine to send.

ayanfujmiya 07/ 3/2015 #

Extra Info. Favorite Classes - Potions, Defense against Dark Arts, and Transfigurations. Favorite Shop - Weasleys Wizard Wheezes, The Three Broomsticks.

I'm a Ravenclaw. My absolute favorite character is Severus Snape, followed closely by Rubeus Hagrid, the Weasley Twins (love the book chapter where they left Hogwarts!), Luna Lovegood, Aberforth Dumbledore, Buckbeak, Sirius Black, Tonks, Neville Longbottom, and Minerva McGonagall. And I love Hedwig - boy, did I cry then! Of course, Errol is fun, too. My favorite classes are Potions and Charms. The best spell around me is Reparo (don't ask). My patronus is a Scottish terrier. I love anything HP - anything! It's hot here in the summer usually, but I can deal with chocolate if it's wrapped well! I love everything homemade, too.
At first, my favorite book was Prisoner of Azkaban - and I still love it! But that was before the last three came out, and I loved each one a little better than the last. It's fun to watch Harry grow up (go through the crappy parts of puberty) in Order of the Phoenix. I love all of the horcrux stuff in Half-Blood Prince. In Deathly Hallows, I have so many favorite chapters, it's not funny! I adore Kreacher's Tale! I also love the chapter where Harry looks at all of Snape's memories, the chapter where he uses the Resurrection Stone, and King's Cross Station, where he talks to Dumbledore again. I just wish the movie (and I don't see how it would have taken much longer) would have shown what Harry really did with the Elder Wand, instead of him breaking it and throwing it away! Anyway, I'm not picky, and I'll love whatever is sent to me! Oh, I don't wear earrings - I guess that's my only limit.
