Details of swap:
Do you have a fandom that is pretty well known but most of the time by people who arent really that into it or have only seen the movie/show? Or people who have just skimmed the top of its potential?
  I am a huge Star Wars fan but I dont always want to walk around with a Star Wars logo on my shirt. I tend to appreciate things that are of that universe but dont scream Star Wars. For example I have a Dewback Brewery shirt. Not everyone immediately associates that with Star Wars. The casual interest person probably wouldnt take a second glance at it but the true SW geek would get it immediately.
 I recently saw an apron with Mellark Bakery on it and thought it was brilliant. My sister didnt get it, even though she watched and liked the Hunger Games movies. Remember Drive Shaft from Lost (or Oceanic Airways, Mr Clucks Chicken Shack, there were so many)? I still have a Greendale Community College shirt from the TV show Community. And I got my Dad a drinking glass with a Red Pony logo on it from the fictional bar in Longmire. Or what about Fangtasias from TrueBlood? Soft Kitty from Big bang Theory. I could go on and on.
 How about a swap for those of us with Fandoms that dont want it to be so obvious? This would be a swap for regular fandoms that we dont want to be so blatant about or it could also be used for fandoms of things, like books, that dont really have too many items available. But you would have to be specific with your partner if you are doing something like a book or something more obscure. The intent of this swap wouldnt be to force someone to read a bunch of books or watch hours of an unknown TV show.
 Yes, it's a long Questionnaire but if it's undercover than most would not have picked up on it so I want to be helpful to partners. Communication will be helpful too!

This swap will be for 1 medium and 2 smalls. You can spoil but please discuss that with your partner first.

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is a guideline ONLY: a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Going to work on my questionnaire soon! I'm thinking McAnally's Pub from the Dresden Files... subtle bell and key patterns from Garth Nix's Old Kingdom... The Bronze nightclub from Buffy!

It's not goodbye friends - find me on the reddit group, on instagram @oceanna.kolb and oceanna.kolb at gmail. <3<3<3

I'm really excited about this, but I'm confused by the questionnaire and just want to make sure I'm doing it right... so first we list at least 3 fandoms, plus type/media... then in the chart below that we repeat the fandom and type/ media, but add feature/ quote/ whatever and possible projects? Is it six for each fandom, or six total? (So, like, you might have four Harry Potter things, and one each from your other two?) And then you list additional sayings/ quotes for the next question, or do you repeat ones you may have used from the feature/ quote/ unique item category in the chart?
