The May 2017 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is Guardians of the Galaxy.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, 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. (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 5 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, bookmarks, address labels, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fanfic drabbles/ficlets, etc.

More specific ideas: cassette tape crafts, your own mix tape song list, character wanted posters, Groot in a pot, comics.

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 May and please send by the deadline (May 31)

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be stolen from Earth and dropped on an alien spaceship.

I am Groot!! And maybe a Star-Lord!

Groot, and Rocket, and Star-Lord, and Drax and Gamora and Tondu ... and The Music, and the FUN! I love how the dialogue is so witty, and I like how colourful the movie is. I love the characters interacting with each other (especially Groot and Rocket, because I Am Groot, and Rocket and Star-Lord, because banter!) and I love how they are such unlikely heroes. <3

*Yondu, of course, sorry...

Groot, and Rocket, and Star-Lord... Really, it's all good :)

Baby Groot!!!!!! all the way :) I also love the stuff that comes out of Drax's mouth. And Rocket, especially when he's interacting with Groot.

And I love anything handmade, especially squishy stuff like plushies ;)

Ummmmmm kind of everything everyone above said!

Groot and Rocket are my favorites, hands down, followed by Star-Lord. And I adore pretty much every line of Drax's dialogue. I love the music and the general feel of this movie(s). I love the concept of this band of misfit outlaws accidentally falling into the role of saving the galaxy.

I do own a Groot Funko Pop figure already. And I also adore anything soft & hug-able. But you really can't go wrong with anything Guardians of the Galaxy-themed with me. Don't have any ATCs for the fandom, so if those are your thing, feel free!

Hmm, Star-Lord, Rocket and Groot are my favorite, but really anything from the movies would be ok!

I like magnets from the fandoms I am into or really anything I can display on my desk at work and soft things.... whatever my partner wants to send is welcome!

You know, after seeing the second movie, I'll have to add that Yondu and his relationship with Peter climbed higher on my list of likes. Because damn. And baby Groot is adorable.

Also, I love how these movies are so character-based. Like, they're ALL fleshed-out characters. Ugh I just really love these movies.
