Step One

- Make a post (public, friends locked, 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 friends friends, or just random journals, or [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes/[livejournal.com profile] wishlist) 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. Donations to Heifer International. Donating money for a sustainable food/income source helps impoverished people around the world. I myself feel most passionate about donating honeybees, if that's something you'd like to know.

2. Holiday cards! I like getting mail, don't you? Especially cheery holiday cards that I can put up at home so my cat thinks I'm popular.

3. Tea. I'm fast becoming a ridiculous tea junkie. Bags, sachets, loose leaf -- all are good for me, but I prefer black teas, especially chai. I usually don't care for herbal.

4. I never say no to fic or drabbles. Fandoms that I love right at this instant: BSC (as always), Marvel, The Eagle, Disney, and Harry Potter (mostly Sirius/Remus, but I also have mad hearts for Neville, Luna, Percy and Cedric).

5. I also never say no to fanart, whether of my own fic or just things I love. Anything from the above fandom list, and anything else you can think of that I love and am somehow overlooking, would be amazing.

6. Candy! Some of my favorites are dark chocolate and mint, but your faves would also be the cooliest!

7. Socks! Bright, fun colors and wacky patterns and general warmness. I would think of you every time I looked at them, I promise. Anything above the ankle is a problem, though, since apparently I have giant calves that don't let me wear all the adorable knee socks I covet. :(

8. Some sort of cat tree/scratching post/hidey hole/catnip toys, because I'm constantly afraid Sorsha is bored.

9. Nice-smelling soap. I'm weirdly into soap. I'm getting LUSH withdrawals.

10. My Amazon wishlist is kind of enormously long, and anything from there would be outrageously appreciated. Nothing has to be brand-new.

If you need my address for any reason, email me at mizzmarvel at gmail dot com.

You and I have very similar taste - tea, dark chocolate, socks, soap... are we just girls?

If you give me your address I may be able to hook you up with a little something :) zelempa/gmail

Is the address you sent me a little bit ago still the best one?

It depends! My home address will get stuff to me, though the mail carrier likes to crunch stuff up before shoving it in the mailbox. My work address is probably better for getting packages to me in a timely manner.
