Christmas meme  
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.

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. More paid time on LJ, because it runs out just before Christmas and I am *addicted* now! ETA: I have more time now! Thank you so much peoples!

2. More paid time with my usericons, because I love them sooooo much. *pats the pretties*

3. Paid time on LJ for supacat, coz she's so great!

4. This one is cryptic at the moment but should become clear in the next few days (I'll do an update to explain it) that you join the comm I'm a mod for and write something for it!

5. Anything and I mean absolutely ANYTHING Michael Rosenbaum related. Icons, fic, anecdotes, interviews, SV trivia or dailies, basically anything I might not already have.

6. Do something nice for toadstoolsmiles because she rocks and I hear she won't ask for anything herself!

7. Vid recs because I love them and am addicted: any Smallville ones that I might have missed? Truly outstanding vids in other fandoms?

8. Amazon.com gift voucher - any amount, however small, because I will put it to great use and share my tales of joy with you guys.

9. A surprise! (heeee! sorry - I couldn't resist this one)

10. Christmas cards! Whee! Please send. I will send cards and Jen nehellania has my address if you would like to send me one as well. See the Christmas post at the_mas. Also, please send her one too!



OK! I'm going to be running around my f'list tracking down your wishes and granting in as creative a way as possible. I can't believe how early this got started but, hey, the more lead time the better! ;-)

SV vid recs: have you seen astolat's Shed Your Skin and Drop Dead Gorgeous vids? SYS was one of the earliest SV vids made, and I think it really holds up. DDG just rocks. *g*

Seah&Margie have fantastic Invisible Man, Joan of Arcadia, and Battlestar Galactica vids.

And I recommend anything on Killa's vid page, particularly Melina's LotR vids, both solo and with astolat and feochadn, killa and TJonesy's Star Trek vids, the HL vids, oh, hell -- all of it's good, some of the best.

And sockkpuppett has all her available vids up, and there's not a bad one in the bunch, for my money. She has two other SV vids.

Oh wonderful! Thank you so much! There are lots of these I haven't seen. I have seen DDG but not Shed Your Skin. And I will totally check out the others too.

*bounces*

Thank you so much for granting Christmas wishes! Vids make me so happy! *is joyous*

Vids:
1) for *all* fandoms (movies and shows) go on Video Elite site. It's an awards site - and there are bunch of brilliant vids there that won. You'll probably find something. ;)
Plus the have links for hundreds of sites.
2) sisabet - you probably already know about this kick ass vid maker, but if that's not the case here is the link for her vids.
3) like_cheap_wine had vids rec page here. Check it out. ;)
4) I'd also like to pimp Lexana vid - My December by lupinskitten. It's on DTS forum - here - new YSI link in post 159.

Happy holidays luv!

Thank you SO MUCH honey! My first icon with my username on it! Wheeeeeee!!!! And it's all Lexy.

The vid recs were brilliant. I know sisabet (yay!) but the other links I did not know of and they led to many great things - and more to come I am sure! *hugs*

Lastly, I loved the Lexana vid! It's brilliant - and it's to a song by the winner of Australian Idol (weird?!). I am getting so into Lana/Lexana at the moment... I even have fic ideas... *g* Thank you for pimping this one!

Have a great Christmas!!

Oh, LL fic ideas, awesome! :)

I'm glad you enjoyed the vids.
(I never heard that song before, but it was really good one and so Lex.)

Merry Lexmas luv!
