The November 2015 Fandom in a Bag swap is the Hunger Games fandom.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, districts, 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).

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: Hunger Games survival kit, a little package with a white parachute, a mockingjay pin, a white rose, a charm bracelet with charms representing each district, 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 November and please send by the deadline (November 30).

NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be sent straight into the arena.

My favorite, both book and movie, is Mockingjay, and I'm thinking I'm in a minority group here. For all of my friends and family who have read the books, that one is everyone's least favorite! I think it's because, as a bit of a rebel myself, I like the rebellion part of the dystopia better than the "games."
I love all the districts and how they can sort of lay on top of a map of the United States. My favorite is 12, but I kind of like 13 as well. As for characters, I have to do a little more thinking on. I love the group of rebels who moves Katniss ever closer to the role of the Mockingjay, and I love Katniss for finally falling into that role. I'll add more, hopefully at the beginning of the week (Monday or Tuesday, Nov. 2 or 3).

I love: Katniss, Gale, Peeta, Rue, Finnick (LOVE FINNICK!!!!), Annie, Prim, Buttercup the cat, and Haymitch (I love how he falls to pieces but still manages to help out... and I love his vulnerability). In the movies, I ADORE Cinna. The first book is my favorite--I love it. I really like the arena settings (so I wasn't so fond of the third book when it broke out of that structure). I really like the world overall--all the districts and the Capitol. I do already have an awesome map of Panem that my partner made for me in a previous swap, and I have a lot of ATCs already. But I'm pretty much open to anything. Message me if you have any questions!
