The July 2016 Fandom in a Bag swap is Harry Potter

Step 1: Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies, shows, books, 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: Hogwarts acceptance letter, OWL quiz and quill pen, Weasley Wizard Wheezes order form, Marauder's Map, chocolate frog cards, fanfiction drabbles/ficlets, WRock CDs (no mix CDs, as per swap-bot's policy), customized course schedule, wizard candy, tea, recipes for magical treats, mini potions bottles, a diary like Tom Riddle's (but DO NOT include a piece of your/someone else's soul inside), copies of altered Hogwarts school books with your own notes (or notes from different characters) in the margins, Quibbler or Daily Prophit minizines, note/drawing folded into a paper crane, a collection of your favorite quotes.

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 July and please send by the deadline (July 30).

NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be sent straight to Azkaban. No passing go. No collecting 100 galleons.

I like Harry, hermione, and Ron as well as Sirius black and dumbledore. My favourite of the movies is the order of the Phoenix. I love hogwarts castle! I love jewelry, books and movie pictures, but am ok with anything really. Wands are cool. I'm in gryffindor so any gryffindor stuff is great and wizard candy is neat too.

So excited for this!!! I'm not picky really. I love love Luna, Harry, Nevel, and even Draco. I love buckbeak or any of the mythical creatures except the big spider ew. Anything gryffindor of course :) my favorite movie would have to be prisoner of azkaban. I'm not really picky. I love all things Harry Potter!!

I love it all! Goblet of Fire is my least favorite movie. Luna and Hermione I love as well as Deathly Hallows II. Truly, I love all things Potter. I just finished putting my package together...hope you love it!

I am a Hufflepuff so anything pertaining to that would be great! I love Harry (of course), Ron and Hermione, Hogwarts, and Sirius Black! I'm not picky either! I love all things Harry Potter so much, I hid geocaches with a Harry Potter theme!

I like all of the main students (Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville, Luna and Ginny), but my favorite characters are Hagrid, all three Dumbledores, Hedwig, Sirius, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, Fred and George, and above all, Severus Snape! I loved all the books – Hallows, Half-Blood Prince and Order of the Phoenix are my top three. My least favorite movie is Half-Blood Prince. I think it’s because they spent so much time on Ron and Lavender and not nearly enough on the Horcruxes. I also don’t like that the Kreacher’s Tale chapter doesn’t make it into the Deathly Hallows movie. But I love how they did The Prince’s Tale chapter, as well as the Kings Cross Station chapter. And that doesn’t mean I won’t watch all the movies! I have all the books and all the movies as well as “The Magical World of Harry Potter: The Unauthorized Story of J.K. Rowling.” I also have a Canadian version of the Philosopher’s Stone book, as well as The Prisoner of Azkaban in 3 or 4 languages (I’m remembering French and Celtic). I was originally sorted into Slytherin on Pottermore (which I didn’t mind in the least – although I feel like a Ravenclaw), but most recently, they seem to have lost my original stuff, and I was sorted into Gryffindor. I’m definitely not picky and love every aspect of the story.

Remus Lupin, Marauders, Marauder's Map ANYTHING, Hufflepuff, Quidditch, HP-themed games or icebreaker exercises (HP "Cards Against Humanity" card suggestions would ROCK), Prisoner of Azkaban book (not movie), Charlie Weasley, Neville Longbottom, Wizard Rock (would love a list of your favorite WRock songs), HP LEGO, Hogwarts, house unity items. Am so excited about Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child!

@BluGinhm I collect PoA in different languages, too! That's so cool!

I'd get sleazy for Ron Weasley. :) I also like Dobby, Fred and George, Molly, okay maybe the whole Weasley family!, wizard candy and any food lol, any hand-made ephemera (Hogwarts acceptance letter, class schedule, diary entries, etc), anything i could hang in my classroom.

Oh also, anything international (I'm in the US), and anything related to Potter Puppet Pals.
