Done been TOOK!

Taken straight from Mikala's journal, since I'm so lazy and have no time to type my own sweet intro.

"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."


1. A challenge for all your ficcers out there : a Mckay centric Christmas on Atlantis fic. Come on guys! How will their first Christmas in another galaxy feel? Angsty, far from home? Happy, from the close-knit group? Maybe someone there doesn't celebrate it, or observes a different holiday. Imagine the possibilities! Only deadline : Christmas Day. Merry ficcing!

2. Motivation and materials to finish teacher and friend gifts for the holidays.

3. Prismacolor markers. No matter how small the set.

4. A print of "Rays of Reflection" by Tobias Zeising, from DeviantartShop. link : http://www.deviantart.com/print/26775/

5. A ping-pong table. Parents might be taking care of that.

6. Any CDs by : Five Iron Frenzy, or the soundtrack to "Troy".

7. My favorite Russian guy should not move. Sigh.

8. My two front teeth. (gotcha there, eh? eh?)
