This is all over and I forget who I copy/pasted from. XD;;

tl;dr - Post a wish list, look for a wish list, grant a wish if ya can.

STEP ONE

Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten 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 to 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) can get in touch with you. Your home address is not required!

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 friends list (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 one person'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 guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give and you might receive. You'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


THE LIST

1) Ganju/Hanatarou fics and art. Or douji where Hana doesn't look like a five-year old. :<

2) Books that read like slash fics. I know there's lots of gay-themed novels out there, but there's a difference.

3) A Hanatarou plushie. ... Don't judge me.

4) Car. Just. Fuck.

5) Hanatarou and Ganju showing up in the anime. Or a game. Or... anything.

6) Packs of apple cider mix.

7) A rec for a manga/anime series with magical girls and genderbender and... stuff. I have issues, I know.

8) Outlaw Star fics or art. Gene/Fred remains one of my first OTP.

9) RPG Maker VX. Although I could prolly just download it myself somewhere...

10) Gumption and patience and determination. I have some stuff I need to start. :

No, I don't know why I'm up.

I've got it in my stupid head to start an lj com again, kinda like Amity Slash, but... Less... erm... Amity Slash, if that makes any sense. It was fun, but kinda devolved into a clusterfuck towards the end.

So! To avoid that should my little OCD goldfish brain keep clinging to this idea... What sort of things do you guys enjoy in your current rps? Stuff like structure, organization, mod involvement? What about plots? How to thread together panfandom rps? Or failing all of that, can anybody rec panfandom rps they're already in that would make for good inspiration or examples of how it's done right?

Soo... today is my birthday. Yeah. 25 isn't exactly what I expected it to be, but all things considered, it could be worse. I've taken CNA classes and am working as a Nurse's Aid at the local nursing home/hospital. I didn't know how much I'd been worrying about the economy and my hours at the restaurant until I didn't have to worry about it so much. :/

I haven't written much of anything in the past few months, but I do feel like my head is loosening up a bit. I've got ideas, I just need to sit down and write them. I've been thinking of a few Danny Phantom fics I need to revist and finally finish, although most of the mental steam has gone towards original stuffs. Ehehe, admittedly, original stuff based on the fanish stuff, but it's a start. XD;;

All in all, looking back, it's not where I expected to be, but maybe it's not a bad place to be heading towards.

EDIT: Also, thank you [livejournal.com profile] lastofthesane for the Seiya icons! <3

Looking for a few good book recommendations!

I found a preview of a really cool comic on Scans_Daily that was part of a Top Cow contest where people voted online for which comic out of six that they wanted to get an actual series. One of those that sadly didn't make it was a little number called "Urban Myths." The whole thing is just what is says on the tin: urban myths. Roman and Greek mythology plopped right down in the big city with a good heaping dollop of detective noir.

Quickie Scans_Daily preview here.

Nice full and legal issue here, on Newsarama.

And... it totally didn't win.

So are there any comics, manga, novels, cartoons, whatever that fall into a similar genre? Mercede Lackey's SERRAted Edge novels edge kinda close, but are more of a "Humanity must never know!" urban fantasy. The Hellboy comic mythos is even closer, but falls short of the whole, "Crap, the naiad upstairs is getting waterspots on the ceiling again," that "Urban Myths" seemed ready to set up.

Seriously. Up for anything kinda close to "Urban Myths" genre-wise.

Also, for extra brownie points, paranormal romance novel recommendations that don't focus on some permutation of vampires or werewolves. Werecat... thingies... count as werewolf permutations. All the freaking mythology to work with and people keep coming back to variations on vampires and werewolves!

Originally posted to the Question Club com, but I got about one helpful rec out of over a dozen posts of "tl;dr lol!" before realizing that maybe some of the people who read this thing might have a couple things to rec themselves. :/
