People said I should do this.  
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.


I want:

-To go home.
-A drum kit.
-A practice pad.
-This.
-A bass guitar.
-An electric guitar.
-A new acoustic guitar.
-A piano/keyboard.
-A D minor harmonica.
-A good music teacher. XD
-The Last Place You Look.
-A black (or is it navy blue?) Santi hoodie.
-SLH membership.
-TAI merch. I really want this thing. They have it in my size too.
-Shirts, I love shirts. Classical ones. 3Q or short sleeve. Just steal 'em from Beckett, I love his taste in clothes.
-I'd ask for gift cards, but shipping anything here costs $25, so those would have to be very big value gift cards. XD Unless they're iTunes, which is always welcome, of course.
-An LJ name change token maybe? XD
-Stuff that shows you care: friendship bracelets, drawings, self-made stuff.
-To be loved...

I'm not sure what i'll get you, but i'm going to get you something :D
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 05:43 am (UTC)
Aww, thank you. ^_^
brendons_butt on November 9th, 2008 02:24 pm (UTC)
Ok, I'm totally gonna have to start writing my Christmas list soon, especially for LJ people, because most of you guys live oceans away from me. whfiovhjids, so much to do, so little time! D :D:
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 08:46 pm (UTC)
Dude, how am I gonna send you anything now? D= Your parents will find me and hang me on my small intestines.
brendons_butt on November 10th, 2008 07:58 am (UTC)
Lol, oh we'll work something out. ;)
Lizzielizzasaurus on November 9th, 2008 03:28 pm (UTC)
self-made stuff lmao.

i made your cookie, just so you know.
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
Cookie! ^_^ Your cookie is totally adorable. Did you make it like in real life too?
Lizzielizzasaurus on November 10th, 2008 05:23 am (UTC)
aw no, i fail at vegan baking. XD

i liked all the grabby hands, y'know. haha. even if they did look a little wonky!
Faiththelibertine on November 10th, 2008 05:27 am (UTC)
The hands were adorable! ^_^
my paisley is wet: thumbs upmelish on November 9th, 2008 03:30 pm (UTC)
VIC FIRTH DRUMSTICKS ARE. IDEK. *hands* I love them. They're my faaavourite. Do you have really tiny hands? Because I'm 7B lol :(

You must be a music genius or something, damn.
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
I might be a music genius, but I'm an underequipped music genius. I don't actually play all that stuff, just so you know. XD Except guitar and harmonica. I've never had a drum kit, but it's my dream. I've also picked out those drumsticks at random by descriptions and I figured that would be the right size for me, but I could be totally wrong. I could go to a music store downtown, but a)they have shitty stuff there, b)they're mean. If you don't have a degree in music, they'll treat you like crap. I always leave that place feeling sick, they're real bastards.
You should be my online drum teacher. XD Would be kinda hard with no drums though. =(
don't be scared of the rhythmbutidigress on November 9th, 2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
I think I can do at least one of those!
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 09:21 pm (UTC)
Aww. ^_^ Thank you. Even if you don't get me anything, still I appreciate that you considered it. (=
don't be scared of the rhythmbutidigress on November 9th, 2008 09:31 pm (UTC)
I'll have to wait a week to put my check in the bank, but I'll get it to you right after! <3
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 09:34 pm (UTC)
OMG, you're getting me all excited. Thank you so much. ^_^
don't be scared of the rhythmbutidigress on November 9th, 2008 09:39 pm (UTC)
You're welcome!
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 11:01 pm (UTC)
I don't know which one you were going to get me, but if by any chance that's the rename token, I just looked at it and it's $15. O_O I really don't think that's good value for the money, omg, I wouldn't want anyone to waste $15 on this crap for me, even if I hate my screen name.
don't be scared of the rhythmbutidigress on November 9th, 2008 11:13 pm (UTC)
You are a mind reader aren't you? I figured that'd be the easiest. And please, don't even worry about it! I know what its' like to want a new name, I got one for myself a few months ago.
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 11:26 pm (UTC)
Haha, I felt that's what you were thinking about. I don't know, I'd love the name change, but I just don't think I want it enough to pay or have anyone else pay $15 for it. XD I'm used to my name already, it just bugs me there's a swearword in it. I'm kinda scared of posting in certain communities, because I think people might ask me to leave because my name is R-rated. XD Still, it just seems like such a waste of $15. D= I mean you could buy an album for that money on iTunes and still have some left. Some sites let you change your name for free, LJ is making you pay this much. I guess what bugs me is that it's such a ripoff. If it was at least $5, I could live with that. But $15 is insane.
I wish that t-shirt didn't need shipping money, or else it would also be $15. XD Life's not fair.
don't be scared of the rhythmbutidigress on November 9th, 2008 11:49 pm (UTC)
seriously, it's not a problem at all. even if i spend like a fiend during the rest of the year, i always have money set aside for gifts.
Faiththelibertine on November 9th, 2008 11:52 pm (UTC)
I think I'm also panicking 'cuz I have no idea what to rename myself to. XD I'm so used to this name even though I never really liked it. Ah, I'm confusing myself.
don't be scared of the rhythmbutidigress on November 10th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
I totally bought my rename token before I even knew what I was using it for. You can hold on to it as long as you need to come up with something!
Faiththelibertine on November 10th, 2008 12:12 am (UTC)
True. I'm just having doubts about it now. XD Whether I even want to change it. I guess it's like an old scar. You hate it, but you get used to it, and then when someone suggests you can get rid of it, you feel like maybe you don't even want to.
I need therapy..
dsotm70 on November 14th, 2008 10:17 am (UTC)
do you really want that name change?
Faiththelibertine on November 14th, 2008 10:28 am (UTC)
I don't even know anymore. A friend of mine already offered me that one, and I'm having doubts now. I've wanted a name change ever since I realized I'm actually using LJ on a regular basis, but there's just so much stuff that's far better that one could use $15 for.
Why?
dsotm70 on November 14th, 2008 09:11 pm (UTC)
cos i'll get it for you if you want.
Faiththelibertine on November 15th, 2008 12:31 am (UTC)
Wow, that's generous. o_o I mean, you don't even know me.
dsotm70 on November 15th, 2008 01:26 am (UTC)
so? don't have to know you to be nice
Faiththelibertine on November 15th, 2008 01:46 am (UTC)
True. It's just a lot of money. For me, at least. I'm not sure if I can accept such a generous gift.
dsotm70 on November 15th, 2008 02:15 am (UTC)
haha it's not for me i have a job. it doesn't pay much but money is just money. it's there so i can make other people happy. do you want it or no?
Faiththelibertine on November 15th, 2008 02:19 am (UTC)
I can't get a job, so yeah. Anything is a lot of money for me. XD
Yeah, I want it.
dsotm70 on November 15th, 2008 02:44 am (UTC)
alright on wed
Faiththelibertine on November 15th, 2008 02:45 am (UTC)
Wow. Thank you so much. ^_^
dsotm70 on November 15th, 2008 02:47 am (UTC)
you're welcome :)
Sashblesstherich on November 21st, 2008 08:00 pm (UTC)
Oh, I would really LOVE to give you a SLH membership, even though I don't know you, 'cause it's an awesome community! But I don't have any creditcards, I used my mom's to buy my own membership, but I'll try figure something out!
Sashblesstherich on November 21st, 2008 08:01 pm (UTC)
.. And I love to make people happy, and give presents n_n
Faiththelibertine on November 22nd, 2008 12:29 am (UTC)
Me too. It's such a satisfying feeling to know you've made someone happy. It's like the ultimate high.

And thank you for wanting to give me the membership. Even if you don't, it's still nice to know someone thought of giving it to me. ^_^ It's very sweet of you.
Sashblesstherich on November 22nd, 2008 10:34 am (UTC)
Exactly.

Oh, you're welcome! And if I can't get the membership for you, I'll try something else ^__^
Faiththelibertine on November 22nd, 2008 12:10 pm (UTC)
You're awesome, thank you. =D
Sashblesstherich on November 23rd, 2008 10:48 am (UTC)
Thank you too (:
iwantblood on December 24th, 2008 07:48 pm (UTC)
How have I not seen this? I'd totally get you something if I wasn't 16 & unemployed. Maybe next summer. :)
Faiththelibertine on December 25th, 2008 06:14 am (UTC)
Aww, that's sweet of you. ^_^
Don't worry about it, this entry was mostly just to vent. I didn't actually expect anyone to get me anything.
iwantblood on December 26th, 2008 03:18 pm (UTC)
Haha, aww. Okay then. :)
