I've seen maybe one of these so far this holiday season, but I've decided I'm doing it anyway. Why? Because i can. also, because i have another 20 minutes before i can leave work (kids were on the bus half an hour ago), and I'm bored but i can access dreamwidth!

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.

1. ICONS!! i have a serious icon addiction. hit any of my ships or any of my fandoms, and i will cheer! lately, i'm rabidly addicted to Glee (Kurt and Puck are my favorites, but i like everyone), Korean boybands (2pm, Beast, BigBang, TaeYang), and jdramas.

2. FIC FIC FIC FIC FIC. Yes. write or rec me fic if you want to make me giddy with joy. Glee (Kurt/Karofsky, Kurt/Blaine, Puck/Rachel, Brittney/Artie, Mike/Tina...whatever!), asian dramas (too many to list omg)

3. music from Glee eps: Madonna, Funk, and Theatricality. Glee eps for download: most of S1

4. anything and i mean ANYTHING from Lush. Dont like the smell of something you bought? Ended up with samples you wont use? I WILL TAKE THEM AND SQUEAL HAPPILY.

5. Candy or chocolate...pretty much anything chocolate

6. Donate to charity, adopt a kid from the angel tree, do something cool for someone else and tell me about it. :)
