The April 2014 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is Torchwood (time for it to get to stand on its own, I think).

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, episodes, series, 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 5 different types of items although more is certainly encouraged to make your bag look full of goodies.

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: TW ID badge, guide/map of the hub, tourism brochure, tea from Ianto, a risen mitten or other alien tech gadget replica, Captain Jack's alien tip sheet, Myfanwy stuffie, 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 cast into a temporal vortex never to return.

I love the Torchwood team, so the first two series are my favorites (and I haven't watched Miracle Day yet, because it doesn't feel like real Torchwood to me). I love Jack, Ianto, and Tosh the most, but I like the team as a whole and I love Jack/Ianto together. I love the hub and Jack's version of Torchwood.

I like the angsty and sexy moments the best, as well as ones that deal with moral issues. I liked Capt. John Hart a whole lot. I hated CoE and have blocked much of it from my memory. I love John Barrowman's singing and have his albums. I have the first TW graphic novel and many of the books, but I don't have Exodus Code.

I love Torchwood and Captain Jack in general. Loved when he was on Doctor Who. I don't really have anything that relates to the show except a Captain Jack figure I got at my local thrift shop, so I'd love pretty much anything. Plushies are a favorite of mine ;)

I can second everything Kate wrote, except when it comes to Johns singing ;-)
I have Actionfigures of Jack, Ianto and John (and the Blowfish, but my son nicked that one :-), most of the Audiobooksand the DVD Boxes.
I don't like Gwen and I ship Jack/Ianto. I love Myfanwy!

BennysMumma 03/31/2014 #

ok, I have to look like a dummy, but what is Myfanwy?

KateKintail 04/ 1/2014 #

Myfanwy is the name of the pterodactyl :-)

I met someone a few years ago who was named Myfanwy and I got a little excited. "You're Welsh!" and she replied "Um, yes." And I said "I know your name from Torchwood. You don't meet many Myfanwys in the US." And she smiled and humored me ;-)

Two more notes to my partner... I definitely already have the DVDs for 1-3 (don't have 4). And I bought myself Captain Jack's vortex manipulator wristwatch thingy when it looked like this swap wasn't going to happen and I wanted to give myself a present. So... I don't need another one of those :-)

Mello 04/ 1/2014 #

Woah, you have a vortex manipulator? That's rad!
Sorry that I missed the Myfanwy Question - thanx for stepping in there Kate! I just love the idea of the big girl soaring the hub and be let out for fresh air in the night :o)

BennysMumma 04/ 1/2014 #

oh damn, I was gonna make a vortex manipulator too :(

Mello 04/ 1/2014 #

Oh well, Kate could pass hers to me and you could send her the one you make.....just saying...

KateKintail 04/ 1/2014 #

Oh hey, a homemade vortex manipulator would be AWESOME to get! I would never say no to that!!! Juggling vortex manipulators among swap partners could definitely be arranged to get this to work!
