The Christmas Wish List
I feel a bit strange throwing this out there, but what the hey.

How it works:

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, or link to this post (it'll be public) 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.

Fanish stuff:
A lovely lengthy fic with a happy ending and a mention of a goat.
Ezra/Buck (Mag7. Pref OW but any Au is good. I’m not picky)
Daniel/Jack (Stargate:SG1)
or RayK/Fraser (Due South)

An icon with the phrase “As bemused as a burnt nipple”
An icon that sums me up.
An icon with a goat.

Non-fannish things I want
The best of ABBA
The best of Queen
The best of Pearl Jam

A t-shirt from this web site: One Angry Girl

Bubble-wrap. Lots of Bubble wrap.

Things I want, but really aren’t practical:
A goat.
Dreadlocks/ cornrows
A tattoo on my lower back of the two fingers almost touching from Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel.

Hee - it's only a brief mention (well, two brief mentions) but I'll definitely make sure that story's finished by Christmas for you. Also, I'll make a good copy of my Best of Queen CDs as soon as I get home at the end of term and send it your way. Might arrive a bit after Christmas, depending on how long it takes to travel from here to there, but I'll try to get it out as soon as possible :-)

A delphi fic would be the most wonderfuless thing ever for Christmas. That would make my entire year.
No need for the CD's (someone else has kindly offered to copy their Queen for me)

This wish list thing is lovely.
