femmealunettes: (secrets and promises : Holmes and Watson)
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 Ron/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 stories 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.

1. Fluffy holiday fic. Especially with trios.
2. "Not a single fuck was given that day" fandom macros.
3. Anything off my wishlist.
4. Music recommendations. (Here's what I listen to already.)
5. Any fantasy or science-fiction books you care to send to me.
6. Tell me what you think of my poetry or I'll throw you out the airlock
7. Recipes for amaretto drinks.
8. Vegetarian recipes so I can make something nice for Shane and Mary next semester.
9. Help me figure out where I want to get the Sappho quote tattooed on me. (Let there exist for us not one single further sorrow.) I'm not sure if I want it on a forearm or on my back or what... ideally I'd like to be able to see it, but I also already have a lot of really visible tats and I don't know if I want one that will be even harder to cover up...
10. Add me on Facebook and play Words with Friends or Scrabble with me.

I'm definitely not getting any tattoos on my stomach, I'm too insecure about it to show it off. But thank you in advance for the recipes!

I already have the VFD eye on my left ankle, and my right ankle is reserved for an iris flower. But props on the Prufrock, that's my favorite poem of all time.

Mine too. And now I've spent the last 30 minutes looking up fonts and silverware patterns.
