The June 2014 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is Firefly/Serenity.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, 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 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: ship replica, dino toy play set, postcards from around the 'verse, Jayne hat, Serenity keychain, Inara's incense (not the explody kind), Chinese disctionary, fortune cookie, ship blueprints, 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 June and please send by the deadline (June 30)

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be sent to the special hell.

I already own a Jayne hat and a Jayne hat Christmas ornament. I also already have a car bumper sticker, the comics/graphic novels, the DVDs of course, and dino figures.

I adore Firefly/Serenity. Every second. Every character. Every episode. My absolute favorite characters are maybe Simon, Kaylee, and Mal. But I LOVE THEM ALLLLLLL! Even Badger ;-) I love the ship, love the feel of the show (and this from someone who grew up hating westerns and not loving hardcore sci-fi movies), love the clever writing, love the dialogue, I love everything. Seriously. I'm one of those people who has two copies of the show and lends one boxed set out to anybody who wants to see it. I try to make it to Can't Stop the Serenity every year, but I'm just a lurker on my local browncoats group's mailing list. Okay, I'm not a huge fan of Reavers; I don't love them a whole lot, but the idea of them is great.

I'd also love to hear what YOU love about the fandom--you favorite quotes, your favorite fanfics (I ship Simon/Jayne and Simon/Kaylee mostly when I write Firefly fanfic but have no problem with canon ships, gen, or slash).

I love everything about Firefly/Serenity, so I'll just list the things I DON'T need: I already have a Jayne hat, dino play set, and Serenity DVD, so I don't need those items.

A t-shirt would be great if you're so inclined. I prefer a Men's size Large.

I'm am so insanely excited to have found this group, I love me some geekery! I love everything about Firefly/Serenity, I would be hard to disappoint :). I love Mal, Jayne, and the Shep most of all....and "I can kill you with my brain" River. I love any of the funny quotes. I love that durn ship.
I don't have any Firefly swag at all so I'd love just about anything. I would especially love to receive it in a fabric quart-sized zip pouch themed to anything related to the movie.
If you have any spare comics that would be awesome. Dino toys and Christmas ornaments would be wasted on me :( Here are some ideas for handcrafted items (of course I expect them all to be scaled way down to fit in a baggie): Hooplas, Teesha Moore patch, clay/wire sculptures or dolls, journal, dimensional (paper craft) shadowbox/picture....

I also love all things Firefly/Serenity! My favorites are everyone....especially Kaylee & Simon, Mal & Inara, Zoe & Wash & Emma!! I love the direction the comic is going (I read the latest issue today :) ) But there's only one issue left for this set and I don't know if my Serenity fix is going to be satisfied?! So, I would love anything handmade or store bought. I would love some art, a Kaylee parasol (but I don't think that will fit in a Baggie, so I know I'm dreaming big) , cards, stuffies, stickers, basically cool things I can use. :) Maybe something with the New Resistance Browncoat logo?

Anything Firefly will thrill me :D It's one of my most beloved fandoms, and yet I have very little fun stuff for it. River is fave, then Zoe. Then everyone else. Jayne last (I KNOW, how dare I), but he's still loved.

Anything related to Serenity herself would be awesome, that ship kicks butt. Anything Blue Sun or Fruity Oaty Bar. Anything Badger. :D ANYTHING AT ALL. I am honestly really easy to please.
