Holiday Wishes

Step One
- Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friends list (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.



My wishes:

1. icons made JUST FOR ME, fandom related or with cool quotes. I'm still heavy into Asian fandom, including Arashi and Yamapi, but Glee and Bones are high on my list as well. I love stock icons, too. I'm still looking for some really cool Halloween icons, for instance. I love icons, i have ridiculous amounts saved to my hard drive, so this is an easy way to make me happy.

2. FIIIIICCCCC. Fic is my very favorite thing on the planet. I love gen and het and slash in all kinds of fandoms. Rec me awesome things, too!

3. Vids! I always love to see vids! If you make them, awesome, but linking me to stuff that is in my interest areas is also awesome.

4. An apron. I desire an apron. Something cute, but not frilly or pink. I'm tired of being covered in flour when Im baking.

5. A cute cloth doll for Voldemort. I love the looks of the Waldorf dolls, but holy crap they are expensive. Id love a boy doll of whatever race - I just really would love one for him that is all cloth, including the head.

6. Some Holztiger animals for the kiddo. These are SO COOL.

7. Audiobooks - I require this to keep me from obsessing about whatever could happen/did happen at work on my 45 min drive to and from work everyday. I put them all on my mp3 player, so if you have any sitting around on your hard drive, i'd love them!

8. This is going to sound rather weird, but I would really really love some homemade vanilla. I can't find any vanilla bean around here, or I'd make it myself.

9. Music mixes - Im always up for new music, and I love fan mixes or just cool mixes.

10. Donate to charity. I love Smile Train, but any charity would be awesome. Or make someone else's wish come true through this meme. :)

I LOVE THIS IDEA! I'm totally doing it! (And will, of course, try to grant some wishes!)
ooh, you've never done this before? this meme has been around at least 4 years..ive done it most years. it's a really cool way to do things for people on your flist - people you might not ordinarily think to do anything for, or not know what to do. it's awesome.

link me when yours is up, please! i THINK there might even be a comm dedicated to this meme? Maybe?
Um, do I assume that you have high-speed? Otherwise, I'll have to snail you the audiobooks. They're pretty hefty! Do you care about your authors or should I just send you a selection? And do I wait for Hanukkah or can I send them now?
oh yes, i have high speed!

and a selection would be lovely, and ANYTIME, and YAY THANK YOU!
AOL hates me! Apparently I can't send files above a certain size. Therefore, you're getting your first AB one chapter at a time. Sorry :-( You're getting a Neil Gaiman first, because it's the smallest. You also might be able to share this one with your class :-)

I hope you don't find this creepy. :[

I've seen a few of your picspams and since you're not on my flist, I wanted to see if you've had any posted recently. I found this instead, and...



I'm sorry I don't have any Halloween stock icons to offer. You don't have to use these if you hate them, but I've been itching to make icons and since (hopefully) you'll like them, I'm killing two birds with one stone, right? (Also, feel free to say that they're all yours if you do use any; I never post my icons anyway. XD;;) (Oh, and the Arashi ones are kind of crap, but I blame it on the bad quality of the pictures, anyway. >>)

Re: I hope you don't find this creepy. :[

ooh! not at all creepy! I love the second arashi one and the first yamapi! Thank you thank you! *saves*

Re: I hope you don't find this creepy. :[

Yay, my spreading happiness worked. ^^
