The December 2016 Fandom in a Bag swap honors the holiday season of giving and is a mix of your favorite fandoms. You can use this as a makeup swap if you missed a fandom we've already covered or you can just join and geek out over all your favorite fandom goodness.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite fandoms that you'd like to receive items for in a bag. Remember, your swap partner might not know your fandom too well, so listing specifics is a GOOD idea!

Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. PLEASE 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). You can include items from all your partner's favorite fandoms, just a few, or just one fandom, as long as you include at least 7 different items.

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, soundtracks, 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 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 December and please send by the deadline (December 31).

Group rules apply. I'm setting the rating as 4.9 for this swap because I don't want to see anyone flaked on during the holidays. NO FLAKING ALLOWED!

I love a lot of fandoms; you can look at previous group swaps for specifics. But it would be great to get some fandom love in fandoms that are less popular or that we haven't covered. So...

  • Highlander: the series (this is always going to be my favorite fandom)
  • Hamilton (I am officially OBSESSED)
  • Supernatural (especially anything Charlie-related; I named my cat after her. Also love pretty much everything about the show, though I'm 2 seasons behind)
  • Princess Ozma in the Wizard of Oz book series (I named my new kitten after her and would be neat to have anything related to the character)
  • Once Upon a Time (anything; my friend loves the show and it would be great to give her a little something special)
  • Game of Thrones (for my dad, who loves it)
  • D&D dice (I recently started playing D&D with coworkers and would love my own matching set of dice)
  • Fandom-related Christmas tree ornaments for ANY of my fandoms!
  • Slash-friendly hurt/comfort fanfiction and/or fanart creations or recs in any of my fandoms (YUM! See my profile. Message me if you want to know my favorite pairings, OTPs, OT3s, etc.)
  • Fanvid recs (ANY fandom, even ones I don't know! If it's a good fanvideo, I want to know about it! This is for a project I'm thinking of starting up, and I need a lot of really good video recommendations)
  • Ideas for black & white cards for my Harry Potter-themed "Cards Against Humanity" style game. Can be rated G or NC-17, whatever pops into your head!

These are all just wish list items/suggestions. Don't feel bad if you can't fulfill them. Just thought I'd point you in the direction of some things I'd especially love.

Joining now, so I don't miss it, and I'll write a proper Fandom list when I get home from work.

RainyT 11/30/2016 #

Ok .... so my likes are very weird and they include: - ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES, ZOMBIES (walking dead) - Alien and Predator items (I LOVE these movies) - Great white sharks and octopuses - 80s Horror films (Nightmare on Elm, Friday the 13th, Gremlins, Hellraiser, Chucky!) - Biology, Science, I love Natural History Museums! - Anatomical structures (skulls, bones, teeth, etc...)

ihni 11/30/2016 #

Alrighty, am at home now. Okay. cracks knuckles To be fair, I like most things listed on my profile, but as that list is kind of ... well, long ... I might narrow it down to my favourite fandoms RIGHT NOW.


  • Marvel (Avengers - first movie only, Captain America movies, Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy - movies of course, but have nothing against well-drawn comics!))
  • Pixar (Monsters Inc, Wall-E, Brave)
  • Disney (... a lot, but let's settle for Mulan <3, The Jungle Book, Aladdin, The Lion King, Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Tangled for this list ...)
  • DreamWorks (The Road to ElDorado, How To Train Your Dragon, Megamind, Rise of the Guardians)
  • Star Trek (new movies)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean (two words; Jack Sparrow)
  • The Cornetto Triology :p
  • Firefly/Serenity)
  • The Man from Uncle (the new movie)
  • Transformers 1&2 (the movies ... I just liked the robots :p)
  • Tim Burton's stuff
  • Pushing Daisies
  • Stranger Things
  • Liberty Meadows
  • Nemi

And I tend to base my love of fandoms on the love I have for the characters in them ... So I usually have favourite CHARACTERS (or scenes), not favourite shows/movies. (To be honest, probably because of the fanfic potential ...) For example: * Stiles from "Teen Wolf" * Len & Mick from "Legends of Tomorrow"/"The Flash" * Loki & Bucky Barnes from the Marvel Universe * Deadpool from ... well, "Deadpool" (movie & comics) * Furiosa from "Mad Max: Fury Road" * Peter Parker from "Spiderman" (most versions, except for Toby's movie version for some reason) * Dylan from the "Now You See Me"-movies * Ursula from "The Little Mermaid"

... I should probably stop now. This isn't all, of course, but it's what first came to mind. I could go on for a very long time, and no one wants that. So I'll just shut up now. But feel free to message me to ask questions or just generally scream in my inbox about my favourites for a bit. :)

Whops. That second part didn't turn into the nice little list I'd been expecting. Oh well.

Fever 11/30/2016 #

Wohoo! Finally a favourite fandom swap again! :) These are my favourites: - Lord of the Rings & the Hobbit, i.e. the Tolkien Universe in general - Harry Potter ! (Yay for Slytherin!) - Quentin Tarantino films - Tim Burton films (of course, especially Nightmare before Christmas around this time of year) - The weird and wonderful world of Neil Gaiman (I'm sooo looking forward to the American Gods series!) - Transmetropolitan or other universes created by Warren Ellis - Studio Ghibli (I love Totoro & Princess Mononoke) - Hannibal (Harris's books, the films and especially the US series) - creature features & B-movies (it can't get TOO bad :D - do your worst!)

... this is all I can think of right now. If none of this floats your boat or you have further questions, just contact me! :)

Fever 11/30/2016 #

@ihni Hrumpf! Same problem!

KateKintail 11/30/2016 #

@ihni Just wanted to squee along with you about Len & Mick! Prison Break was one of my favorites and to see them teaming up again on multiple shows is epic! (I've loved Wentworth since Dinotopia and loved Dom since John Doe)

PS- I love Eeyore and have a huge collection. I never say no to Eeyore-ness

Nevermore 12/ 3/2016 #

My absolute favourite fandoms are Transformers and Mass Effect.

  • For Transformers I like g1, tfp and the IDW comics (I absolutely love more than meets the eye) but as long as the stuff isn't related to the movieverse/bayverse or TFA (Transformers animated) then I will be more than happy (I also don't really like Bumblebee). My favourite characters are Starscream, Megatron, Drift, Knock Out, Tarn (or any of the DJD), Soundwave, Rodimus (aka Hot Rod), Cyclonus, Tailgate, Deathsaurus (also known as Dezarus) and Leozack, Getaway, Skywarp, Thundercracker. Any sort of vague Decepticon related stuff is wonderful too.

  • For Mass Effect I love pretty much anything, but my favourite characters are F!Shep, Liara, Aria, Saren and Nihlus.

  • I love Dragon Age 2 (esp. F!Hawke, Cassandra, Fenris and Anders).

  • Steven Universe (esp. Jasper, Pearl, Peridot, Amethyst)

For more obscure things i like:

  • Daganronpa (both 1 and 2 although I have only got to the first trial in 2 so please no spoilers if you happen to have played). Especially Togami, Sakura and Komaeda.

  • Repo! The Genetic Opera.

  • The Devil's Carnival

hushpadwitch 12/ 3/2016 #

How to narrow it down?? First and foremost - Harley Quinn! I have a bunch of classic Harley Quinn so I would live to receive Suicide Squad Harley! I do have all the Pops, even exclusives but anything else would work but I do already have the DC Superhero Girls dolls. Doctor Who - my favorite Doctor is the 10th. I don't think he'll fit in a bag but it's worth a shot! ;) The Walking Dead - fave is Daryl. Harry Potter is awesome! Have all the coloring books but not much else! Pokemon Go is a weakness haha. My faves are Squirtle and Pikachu. Um, Teen Titans Go - I love Raven! Anything Studio Giblhi (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro), Buffy the Vampire Slayer will always be a winner! PM me if you have any questions!

ihni 12/18/2016 #

@KateKintail Yay, someone else who loves Len & Mick! :D I used to follow Prison Break as well, back in the day, so to see them together was awesome. And the things they say in that show! "This isn't my first prison break", etc?? That's just ... they're just playing with us, surely! :D Anyway, it's amazing.
