Ok I give in. I'll do the list.

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. - 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. The thing that I really want but can't tell you what it is otherwise it won't be the thing I really want.
2. A cleaner.
3. The ability to concentrate and finish the WIP faster.
4. A nice new man that fits my exacting requirements.
5. To be (much) thinner and to have my self esteem back.
6. Someone to make me something nice, like an icon for the WIP or somesuch.
7. Cider! sweet or medium sweet please.
8. A nice dark and angsty Spuffy fic to replace the Spuffy ficathon story I never got (I can't remember what I asked for). I want my heart ripped out, but a happy ending is up to you.
9. My bathroom fixed.
10. FEED ME FEEDBACK, SEYMOUR!!! The ego needs a regular stroking. It's taken a battering of late.

One of my wish list items has already happened - a ban on Fox Hunting in England And Wales. Yay! I would have commented earlier, but somehow it all seems like an anti-climax. (Like the year 2000). But I'm pleased.

No 7 - Consider it done.

Aw...number 5 and 10 made me sad and a bit puzzled.

I think you're fabulous. You're funny, witty and clever.
You make me laugh and I'm just talking about you, although, I could say the exact same things about your writing.
You're one of the people on my FL who makes it the 'bestest FL ever'. <--Barf-worthy, but I'm being sincere.
I didn't know you were feeling down about yourself. I just thought it was a writing thing. I'm always up for giving you feedback on your fic. When it's a good read (like yours) it's something I actually enjoy doing. I'll definately be doing #10 for you.

Oh thank you! You're lovely and you amuse me too.

I'm leaning too much on my writing to bolster the rest of my emotions, I realise that. I haven't recovered at all from the split from my partner, and that's what's destroyed my self-esteem as it has just dredged up all my insecurities. It took me a very, very long time to find someone and I just don't want to do through it all again. I hate being single.

A split from such a long relationship is never easy and it will take you time to recover. Just remember, you are a great person. You were great before him (I am certian, even though I didn't *know* you then) and you are great now. You are creative and talented and intelligent, and an all around good person. I hate to know that your self-esteem is low right now, but it is good you shared so that we, your friends, have the incentive to tell you how wonderful you are.

And I will have a go at number 7. I make no promises, but I will give it a try over the holiday weekend and see what I can come up with. (Thanksgiving in the US and I will be off the rest of the week.)

I meant I will have a go at #8.

Ooh thank you. I'll comment on your other comment tomorrow as I'm too drunk now to think of what to say.

Happy Thanksgiving anyway.

Well, when I get time to read again, I shall make a point of reading your stuff and give you copious feedback! (Oh - and I can ask spikefan to read you too - she gives some of the best feedback I've seen! :)

Feedback is always wonderful and appriciated, thanks.

I hope your wishes come true! I shall make sure I fulfil #10 at some point this week. Is there anything of yours in particular you recommend I should start with?



What to recommend?


People seem to like Santa's Grotty a lot.

But Prism, is my favourite.

Re #10 - consider it done in time for Xmas! I'm all ready and printed!
I can feedback on your LJ answers - I am always amazed by how you can say everything so precisely - you say one word and I fall about laughing. Succinct, sharp and sassy - go you!
Hope #1 comes true.....

Now I'm really under pressure to come up with something witty before 10am. Arrgghh! The Pressure!

Thanks. Looking forward to #10, no word yet on #1 alas.

Whee! Thank you! (in advance)

You are more than welcome! if you have any ideas in mind just email me at red.sunflower @ and I will be working on them right away.

I dont read fan fic much at all, I dont watch any of the shows BUT I read Santa's Grotty and it made me laugh, it made me want to read more, and from someone who reads as avidly as I do, take that as a compliment!!

Cant help with #2 unless you're local to me, then I'd happily don the rubber gloves and assist, for anything is better than tackling mine!!

And even at mt age I totally get how you feel, time does help heal, but it hurts during the whole process. Love yourself and when you have stopped looking it will touch you on the face before you know it!!

Happy Holidays!!!

Thank you. Glad you liked Santa's Grotty. Everyone seems to like that one.

And thanks for your comments. (I just hope it doesn't touch my face when I'm asleep or something, because that would be terrifying!)

Me again.

Just seen that you and I are in the same county - so if you DO seriously want a cleaner, or a pair of hands to help you make sense and order out of chaos... Email me!!! I have 5 boys so nothing fazes me ;-)

Hee. Thanks. It was a bit of wishful thinking really. I want to be able to afford a cleaner that comes every day and cleans up my mess. I hate cleaning, especially the kitchen and the bathroom. Until I get the bathroom sorted (it's half built and falling apart because the ex won't give back the money we had to fix it), cleaning it won't be enough. But if you're that keen, the job is yours! ;)

I think we are on opposite sides of the county anyway, as I'm in Hemel Hempstead.
