This year has had its upsides and downsides. This is the year that I started writing fanfiction. It's the year that Sam/Gabriel went from my guilty pleasure pairing to my OTP (though Sam/Dean is still made of teh awesome). It's the year I took my first "foreign language" class that I actually enjoyed and may have learned something in (ASL). And it's the year that I made great new friends online (you know who you are :D). The year I turned 21 and went to my first bar, had my first beer and washington apple. Realized that I can't stand vodka, but enjoy whiskey. And the year I found out that margaritas are freakin' awesome.

It's also the year where rooms got switched around and family drama happened nearly every week. The year we got evacuated to a hotel that doesn't allow pets and the year that my older sister's best friend is having a rough time. The year my friends and I haven't seen as much of each other as we used to, now that we're all getting older and they've got jobs and responsibility and I seem to be at home all the time.

But, really, this year was still a pretty good one. Actually getting to be a part of a fandom that's so awesome and crazy as Supernatural, getting to talk to people who've been there since day one, just like my bestie and me, is all so amazing and I can't even tell you. And it's all so much fun, even if we could do without some all of the wank and character bashing.

For the most part, I think I had an enjoyable year and I really hope that all of you have had a great year. And for those of you that didn't, I hope you have a happy new year, and that things get better! <3<3<3

Never done this before, but it sounds wonderful.

Step One
* Make a post (public, friends locked, 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 so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
* Surf around your friendslist (or friends friends, or just random journals, or holiday_wishes/ wish_list) 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.
