The Wish List

Jim'd from Margaret morudai

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.

10. For Grey to get a good deal on a new car after her's was totalled. (She did get a good deal, so this has come true)

I'll ask my friend Diane if she knows of any sweet Due South Christmas stories. She's a big Due Souther. I don't think I have any Billy Joel or Foreigner cd's, and I know I don't have Aaron Nevill's. Have you heard Anonymous 4? They sing kind of medieval type of music. It's very lovely. Oh, and how about the Monks that do that chant type singing? I've got their Christmas cd around here somewhere. :) I can make copies and bring them Saturday.

Huggies!

1. A sweet Due South Christmas story
From my friend Diane:

Many DS Christmas stories exist. Which ones you want to read depends what you mean by "sweet." All of Bast's stories are slashy and extremely sweet and she has three Christmas stories on her website: http://www.benandrayk.com/

Go to The squidge DS Website and search on Keyword Christmas. Select the ones by Kellie Matthews or AuKestral. They are both excellent slash writers, anything they write is good. Here's the Website: http://www.squidge.org/dsa/

Also on the DS Squidge site Grey has at least one story and she's a good writer too.

I don't know who Jack and Teal'c are, but if you have caps you'd like used and an idea of what you want the icon to be like, I'd be happy to make one or more for you!

Jack and teal'c are from Stargate SG-1 and I don't have any caps of them. But thank you for the offer. :) That means the world to me.

How about a nice Christmas icon instead? I only have the reindeer one and that's it. :)

Thank you in advance.

I love all of these, Gail. :) One from each would be more than enough. You are too kind.
