Holiday Wishlist:

Step One

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, 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 so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your friendslist (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.



o1.. Either the Induction Ring, the Deus Et Natura Ring, or the Life/Death Ring, all of them here.

o2.. Mori/Haruhi fanfics.

o3.. A vacation. -_- Seriously.

o4.. Barnes and Noble's giftcards.

o5.. Um, or to Borders. * fails at buying stuff *

o6.. Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, by Barack Obama.

o7.. Actually, if someone can ensure that Obama will run for president, that would make me happy too.

o8.. A new, better, blue-tooth cellphone. I love mine cos it has a keyboard, which I abuse... and the new bluetooth AND keyboard phones are way too much money.

o9.. Dynasty Warriors four and five for the playstation 2.

10.. As cheap as it sounds... money.

This post is open for anyone and everyone to see. Tell your friends to come over and post their lists too!
