The May 2013 Fandom in a Bag swap is the entire Whoverse fandom (in honor of the 50th anniversary this year). Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the Sarah Jane Adventures are all welcome.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, doctors, baddies, companions, shows, 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 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: time travel survival kit, mini TARDIS, prop replicas, homemade guide to the Whoverse, Gallifreyan calendar, 50th anniversary swag, scarf or bowtie, 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 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 May and please send by the deadline (June 1).

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be parked in front of a weeping angel.

First off, my bathroom is going to be Doctor Who themed. So anything you want to buy/make for that would be SO AMAZING! Blue hand towels with Doctor's catch phrases or Galafreyian symbols stenciled on. A soap dispensor/tissue cozy decorated to look like a dalek or TARDIS. Or sun flower stuff! You get the idea.

I'm into "new Who" more than the old (I'm rewatching the old, but I'm still on the First Doctor). I wouldn't mind anything that contains all the doctors together.

My doctor is Ten. I also really love Eight, Nine, and Eleven (Nine moreso than Eight and Eleven, if I'm honest, but Ten is my guy. heehee).

I adore the first 2 series of Torchwood. Ianto's my favorite, followed by Captain Jack. There's really no one I don't like, except I really dislike what happened in CoE. Did I mention I love Ianto and Jack? heehee

Companions... there isn't really one I don't like. I adore Jack. And Rory (awww, total Hufflepuff, Rory). And Donna (broke my heart when she had to go). And Rose (all the feels). And I even love River and Micky and Martha and K-9 and Sarah Jane and Canton Delaware and, seriously, everybody. I also love Van Gogh and sunflowers. And the TARDIS. I love anything TARDIS (but I already have a hat)!

I'm not too hot about the baddies, but I enjoy them as part of the whoverse. The weeping angels scare me the most. The daleks are fun for humorous crafting and such. The Master is awesomely evil. Really, use whatever bad guys you want (though I prefer the good guys! LOL) just nothing having to do with Waters of Mars. That totally scared me/creeped me out and I can't bring myself to re-watch it.

My favorite DW episodes are maybe: The Christmas Invasion (made me fall in love with the Doctor for the first time), Blink, The Empty Child/Doctor Dances, The Stolen Earth/Journey's End, Human Nature/The Family of Blood, Silence in the Library, Midnight, The Girl in the Fireplace, Vincent and the Doctor, Love and Monsters (the buckets crack me up), The Curse of the Black Spot, The Impossible Astronaut, The Power of Three

Favorite Torchwood eps: pretty much everything in series 1 & 2. Message me if you want specifics. But I ADORE Torchwood even more than Doctor Who! If it weren't for me falling in love with Torchwood, I never would have tried to watch DW again (I thought the first episode was too cheesy). But Torchwood is much more ME. I like bleak and dark and angsty! heehee (Countrycide is maybe my LEAST Favorite, but I'm not into horror movies... and it still has some great Ianto moments, so I still like it. heehee). I disliked the end of Children of Earth and I haven't tried watching Miracle Day. It's just not real TW to me :-(

Oh, I also love TRock and I own a number of CDs, so check with me if you don't want to buy something I already have :-)

PS- have I mentioned enough how much I love Ianto and Captain Jack Harkness and Ten? Just in case you missed it... I do :-)

OMG I think I rambled on too long slinks down in seat Sorry! :-)

I'm so excited for this swap- and it's my first swap as a member of this group! I'm definitely NewWho; leaning heavily toward Ten (bc DAMN, right?). I love all the companions, Donna and The Ponds were my favourites (and Jack). I never grew as deeply as deeply attached to Martha. Love the Daleks. The TARDIS. Absolutely everything Doctor Who. I will love absolutely anything my partner prepares for me!! :D

stlouisphile 04/17/2013 #

My Doctor is Ten. My companions: Donna, Martha, Jack, Rory. I LOVE the TARDIS. And Weeping Angels, the Silence, River song. Did I mention the Tenth Timelord. I'd love to collect all of the Sonic Screwdrivers...I love Jack Harkness too. Favorite eps: 42, Midnight,TEOT, The Doctor's Daughter, The Doctor's Wife, The Snowmen, I could go on...My profile is Whovian. Go figure :D

While I do enjoy Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures I very much prefer Doctor Who, I'm addicted. I do love ten but with every episode I love Eleven more then all the rest. He is my favorite, I think it has to do with all his facial expressions and bow tie fixes I just love him. I would be more then happy to get anything Eleven rated, my favorite companions are "The Ponds", Rory, Amy, and River most of all. I am enjoying Clara too. My favorite episodes are, Blink, Silence in the Library, A Good Man Goes to War, ad Vincent and the Doctor. I have all kinds of wonderful Ten's things like a HUGE poster, his sonic screw driver and a t-shirt with his face on it haha. So like I said I would love to have some Eleven things.

I had tried to watch this series several times the past couple of years, but it never clicked to me until I watched Ten in The End of Time and he said something like "I think you look like giants." speaking about humans, and the light bulb finally came on. So, I am a newbie without any Who related knickknacks.

I love Nine and Rose. I really enjoy the episodes with Jack. I think my favorite moments have been the more scary ones. I like the Daleks (I died at the Dalek/Cybermen interactions. That was amazing.), Weeping Angels (all statues now scare me), and the Master (I'm so fascinated with him and his drums). Any time books, reading, or stories are mentioned, they have my attention. There's no one that I dislike, especially since Mickey finally grew up.

I've seen Torchwood, and again I like the scary moments. I really only watched for Jack/Ianto because I enjoyed those characters and never really warmed up to the others.

Yay, excited!

Ten is my doctor :) I'm fairly new to the series

I'm not biased on companions and baddies but I do love the tardis.

My brother is a huge fan, he really wanted me to do the swap so here I am. :)

heather76 04/28/2013 #

I'm into new Who (9, 10 & 11), and Torchwood (but not Miracle Day). My favorites are 10, Donna, Rory, Captain Jack & Ianto. I love the adipose babies, and anything Dalek related is cool.

thekittenparty 04/29/2013 #

I LOVE ten (OMG everything, right?), and Donna and Wilf.

I have come to love love love 11 because he's just so good. I am delighted at his portrayal of the Doctor and all his mannerisms. I've enjoyed all his companions so far, especially Rory. Love 11's stubborn loyalty to his choice of outfits.

Random Whoverse things: Captain Jack, the TARDIS, Angels, Daleks, Sonics, 10's glasses, 11's hats, Brannigan's kittens, Clockworks, The Silence, The Ood

Favorite 10 eps are End of Time, New Earth, Girl in the Fireplace, Runaway Bride, Blink, Fires of Pompeii

Favorite 11 eps so far are Vincent and the Doctor, Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang, The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon, The Lodger, The Angels Take Manhattan, The Snowmen

I'd love anything 10 or 11-related really, especially handmade stuff that can be displayed in some manner (artwork of any medium, atcs, stuffy/plush, clay sculpture, anything!)

Salome 04/30/2013 #

My Doctor is 4 and from the new series it's 11. I like River Song, captain Jack, K-9, Amy and Rory are OK, Clara too. I absolutely can't stand Rose and her family, eww. Other new companions are fine. From old companions I love Ace, Leela, brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, UNIT as itself, Jamie McCrimmon and K-9 :) I can't stand Victoria and first Romana.

I started a collection of DW characters ATCs, so I would be happy to add new ATCs into it. Cards I already have: Tardis (exterior with Sexy), Tardis interior (10th Doctor era), 1st Doctor, Chumbley, Ian Chesterton, Barbara, Steven, Dodo, Katarina, Jamie, Victoria, Zoe, young Sarah Jane Smith, 4th Doctor, K-9, old Master, 9th Doctor, captain Jack, Slitheen, Torchwood, 10th Doctor, the Face of Boe, Wilfred Mott, Jackie Tyler, Pete Tyler, new Master, old Sarah Jane (new series), Donna Noble, Mickey, Wheeping Angel, Ood, 11th Doctor, River Song and that's all for now. I would like to fill in the gap in old Doctors and their companions, but if you're not familiar with them, there is still lots of space in new ones. I love ATCs with quotes on them.

Bow-tie are cool. So is River's diary, jelly babies, Tardis, sonic screwdriver, decorative vegetable (especially celery), gallifreyan writing and wibly wobly stuff.

Hönis 05/ 3/2013 #

I love torchwood and doctor who! my main doctors are 1st, 8th 10th and 11th. companions are Susan, the Ponds, River Song Harkness, K9 and Donna. I like aliens and baddies such as the weeping angels, daleks, cybermen, the Master, Adipose, Sontarans, the Silence and the Ood. I love things like the Tardis, sonic screwdrivers, bowies, fezés, 4th-scarve, really all the iconic stuff.

I love things I can use to show off my Who love more than I like ATC's (bigger art pieces I can put on my walls I love though!), werable items, bages, jewellery, keychains or cellphone charms and such. Not really a fan of the Sara Jane show, or the latest Torchwood (miracle day).
