Winter Holiday Meme.

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 Sirius/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 friends' friends, 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.

Step Three

I solemnly swear I will not buy anything on this list for myself between now and Winter Holiday.

1) Become a likeomgminion! Minions are members of my website and can earn likeomgpoints (also known as pants points) toward free merchandise (not yet available).

2) An awesome, brain-splodding layout for above-mentioned website.

3) Just check my website out. :) That would make me happy.

4) Music is good. :)

5) Anything wrapped. :) I like presents. :)

6) Book of Vile Darkness or any other D&D books (that are not Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, Monster Manual, Races of Destiny, or Book of Exalted Deeds). :)

7) A hug or a visit. Or both. :)

8) A sword, dagger, belt pouch, gold coins.. :) Anything like that. Nifty site, if you wanna check some stuff out. There are daggers on there for $15 + $5 gets you a frog with it! :) And they're pretty nice daggers. (Hunter Dagger and Knight's Dagger.) However, as I don't have a belt, the frog is less than useful until I get one. :P I'd really like a leg frog for my daggers. :)

9) Take me out to dinner. :) Let's just go someplace and sit around and talk and enjoy ourselves. Or go walking with me at Short Pump so we can look at the stars and eat ice cream and make wishes in the fountains.

10) Someone special.
