The January 2017 Fandom in a Bag swap is BBC Sherlock.

Step 1: Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, episodes, 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 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: knitted Sherlock scarf bookmark, case book, fake ID cards/ID cards stolen off Mycroft, Mrs. H's tips for dealing with eccentric tenants, CD of violin music, John's blog articles, your favorite quotes, plushie/stuffie hound.

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 January and please send by the deadline (January 31).

NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be kidnapped by Moriarty and Sherlock will not come looking for you.

I have no preferences...I love all the characters and can't wait for the new episode!!

Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with anything BBC Sherlock-related with me. I love the whole cast, the clever reimaginings of the classic stories and the flat-out cleverness of the writing.

I do have the Sherlock (with skill) and John POP figures. I'll always love otter!Sherlock and hedgehog!John.

I'm also a fan of Johnlock and John/Sherlock/Lestrade and am always happy to get good fanfic and fanvid recs, especially if there's some hurt/comfort in there somewhere.

Not particular really where this series is concerned! I like both Sherlock (because Benedict Cumberbatch <3 ) and John.

I collect POP figures in general from my Fandoms, so would love a POP figure or a mini POP- think these are key chains- if my partner was so inclined!

Postcards, magnets, and buttons would also be awesome!

I love pretty much everything about the show, so there's really no way to go wrong. Sherlock and John (or Johnlock) are my favorites. I also collect POP figures and so far only have Deerstalker Sherlock from the series.

I'll be so grateful for just about anything related to the show. I'm an omnivorous fic reader, and I multiship like crazy, but of course Johnlock holds the prime spot in my heart. Will not try to list favorite characters, because it's literally all of them. Everything suggested in the swap description is great. I sort of low-key dislike kids toys, but honestly, that's not a big deal. This is gonna be fun!
