Okay, here's what I'd like to do:  I'm going to list the kinds of HP swaps that we brought up in the previous thread and I'd like you to pick your favorites.  Pick as many as you like, just put them in order of your first choice to last choice. 

You can PM me your choices or just post right here in the thread!  We'll give it two weeks, so on May 19th, we'll close the voting and then I'll post which swap we'll start with.  We should be able to do one a month or maybe one every two months - to give us plenty of sign up and crafting time.  Anyhow, it should keep us all happy about HP for the rest of the year!

Here's what we have so far:  (if you have any additions, just let me know through PM please)

1.  Favorite Character Swap
2.  Favorite House Swap
3.  Favorite Book/Movie Swap
4.  Favorite 'Ship Swap
5.  Favorite Fanfiction Swap
6.  HP Tee's/Hoodies Swap
7.  Craft a Wand Swap
8.  HP Creatures Swap

Let the voting begin!!

We've had two additions to the swap choices!!  Here they are:

9.  Diagon Alley swap. you could include things from gringgotts, F & G's joke shop, the two pubs, the uniform, book, and "animal companion" shops!

10. Animal Friends swap? like stuff to do with hedwig, scabbers, Pig, Crookshanks, Buckbeak, fang?

One more item (I swear!):  please read this thread: http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html  if you are new to swapping.  It lets you know the rules and eligibility.  I believe it is one month on Craftster and 15 posts, but go check it out if you are new please!

Is that right?  All 3 of you are fanfiction virgins?!?!  OMG!  All three of you go straightaway to http://www.fanfiction.net and find something to read.

That's my favorite site for general fanfiction.  The one I normally frequent is all Snape/Hermione based.  Just pick "Books", then "Harry Potter".  You can choose the 1st character, 2nd character, rating and length.  Things to keep in mind:  SLASH - means boy/boy stuff, FEMSLASH - girl/girl ofcourse.  I didn't know about Slash when I first started reading and got a bit of a surprise!LOL

I vote for favorite fanfic swap or favorite 'ship swap (guessing you mean relationship)!

I just hope that my first swap will be completed by the time this one starts.

I simply refuse to believe so many of you wonderfully creative people have not read fanfiction.  I was amazed when I found out about it a few years ago (maybe 3 or 4 yrs).  It's a wealth of reading material that I don't have to leave my desk, house or office for!  Yes, there's the good, the bad and they ugly; but you wade through and find the gems - like a treasure hunt.

Changes Made!

1.  Favorite House Swap
2. HP Tee's/Hoodies Swap 
3. Favorite Character Swap
4.  Favorite Book/Movie Swap
5. Diagon Alley Swap
6. HP Creatures Swap/Animal Friend Swap
7.  Favorite Fanfiction Swap
8.  Craft a Wand Swap
9.  Favorite 'Ship Swap

yup theres my vote and on fan fiction I don't mind it it just sometimes gets too sexual for me... and the ships... I just don't know about 'em... maybe if I read some good fan fiction about 'em I'd have a thought on them..

and isn't animal friend swap same thing sorta as creature swap??? oh well they rank the same in my book!

It's not that I haven't read any. I have, I just don't really care for it. I'm sure there are tons of really great ones out there, but I don't have time to wade through the ones that aren't for me to find the ones that are.

Now, just to clarify, these swaps will be each individual right? We can pick and choose which ones to sign up for right? It's not going to be an ongoing where you have to do all of these or anything I hope.

tough decision

2. House
3. Creatures
4.Diagon Alley
5.Animal Friends
6. Favorite Book/Movie
7. Wand
8. Tee/Hoodie
9. Favorite 'ship
10. Favorite Fanfiction

I have read a lot of fanfiction and I think some of the authors really deserve to be published, but I think that swap would be the hardest to craft for.  

edited to add the two new choices
