x-mas meme

took this from


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________ 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.



1) A copy of Christmas Cottage (even if it is a downloaded copy)
2) A copy of Ring of Endless Light – the tv movie not the book (I have the book – and again I don’t care if it is a download)
3) A donation toward research on Diabetes, Lymes, Parkensons or spinal injuries.  Or a donation to Humane League, Heifer international  or ALBC (American Livestock Breed conservancy) 
4)Input on my original fiction
5)Some sort of fiction or art just for me
6) Someone to push me into finishing A wind form the north
7) Paul fanfiction (like that will happen...LOL)
 I can't think of anything else. Heck I'd love anything

Cool - *hugs you*

I've started sending it out to the 'winter break' people so they have it when they can get to it... but only the first 17 chapters (the origanl novel) and not the 3 chapters I've added. I don't know if it should end where I ended it orignaly - does that make sence?

Well, my brother also requested I gift him from Heifer International for the holidays, so I think I'll pitch in a little extra in honor of you and upgrade my donation a bit :)

I'd also be thrilled to have an excuse to force some writing out, hehe, so if you throw some parameters at me, I'll sure give it a shot! I could probably swing an original short story or try my hand at a gen Supernatural piece, with whichever theme/subject/genre you'd like, just let me know and I'll see what I can do!

dude, I would LOVE that.

for fic I'm not fussy - but I do favor Sam over Dean in Supernatural... Origanl I like things set in the here and now that have an elemant of Fanstasy in them...

Dec. 5th, 2008 12:13 am (UTC)
