The February 2016 Fandom in a Mini Bag swap is X-Files.

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, books, movies, 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: FBI ID badges, "I want to believe" mini poster, sunflower seeds, 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 February and please send by the deadline (February 29)

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! All flakers will be locked in a closet with Cigarette-Smoking Man.

I LOVE everything X-Files and I am SO IN LOVE with Mulder. Hubby and I watched the whole series when it was first on and we love the new episodes so much. He's a die hard Scully fan and I'm a die hard Mulder fan. I love The Lone Gunman, Skinner, Cigarette Smoking Man. I'm so excited for this theme!!! I Want to Believe!

I love Mulder and Scully. Skinner and the Lone Gunmen (generally all the good guys) are fun too. I don't like the Smoking man or any of the old scheming group. I love and enjoy all the alien, spaceship or super-technological stuff. Love the I Want to Believe poster. Generally I will appreciate anything what can be actively used (notebook, jewellery, a spoon with an alien head or whatnot), I am not into decorations at all.

^ ^ ^ Everything @Salome said. I do especially love Skinner. And I like a lot of the monster of the week episodes a little more than the really heavy plot arcs later on. Haven't seen any of the new epis yet, as my DVR ate the first episode by accident, but looking forward to them, that's why I scheduled this fandom for this month!

Moose and Squirrel, Skinman, Krycek, aliens. I'm easy to please!
