holiday list
Step 1

☆彡 Make a post (public, f-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.
☆彡 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.
☆彡 Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step 2
☆ 彡 Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:
☆彡 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.
☆彡 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.
☆彡 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) Unlikely things out of the way I would love some GX manga. Not in English though (I have 1-5 and I love them to death but that's all that is out so far, that I know of) but in Japanese, (or French, I might have a chance of understanding that) preferably from volume 6 onwards. Or translations of said chapters (39 onwads) would also be very awesome. I would love that person forever! XD

2) Alright. What I would love even more though is an icon of Johan trying to convince me in some way too get off my lazy ass and do some actual work. (Or some other way of saying that. I'm not fussed.) A screen shot or something would be awesome but I wouldn't say no to fanart. ^^

3) A Johan fic would be cool, I'm quite fond of gen fics but I am generally easy to please.

4) Rebecca also doesn't get enough nearly enough love and neither does Amane actually. Or Rei. (Or Kenzan) So fics about any of them would be lovely. ^_^

5) I would also love to expand my anime/manga horizons so if anyone has any suggestions...

6) Good song recs or links would also be much appreciated. I love rock and genres like that but I also find it very hard to hate a song (there are some exceptions, like Boom Boom Pow by the Black Eyed Peas for example.)

As Aphotic said, anyone with a list feel free to pimp it and I'll see what I can do. ^^ Spread the love people.

1. I'll PM you about that.

5. Have you read Inuyasha? I think it's pretty cool, though I'm still only about halfway through with the manga. Plus, there's a huge fanbase!

6. I'm partial to the Spice Girls, particularly for fanfic inspiration. They actually have some good songs that aren't "Wannabe". :P

Oh awesome! Thank-you so much!!!!! ^___^

I started it a while back, and I did like it, I could just never find the second volume. I'll definatly chack it out again though.

Of course, there's 'Stop' isn't there. ^^ Ok, yes I think I do remember an old cd I had with more songs, but I'm sure they did have more than that.

Well, to start with here are some anime/manga recs! I'm not entirely sure what your tastes are, so I'll just tell you some things I like and hope one of them hits the mark. I watch a lot more anime than I read manga, so most of the recs will be anime.

Anime

Princess Tutu - The name sounds silly but it's one of the best anime I've seen in a long time. It's about a girl named Ahiru who is also a duck who is also a magical ballerina who is trying to collect pieces of a boy named Mytho's "heart" in order to make him into an emotionally complete person. It has giant ravens and fairy tales and creepy powers and awesome ballet moves. It sounds silly but it is magnificent.

Death Note - This is one of my favorite series, and it was my fandom before GX. It's about a teenager named Light who has a notebook which he can use to kill people. He uses it to try to rid the world of criminals, but an eccentric and talented detective tries to stop him. I recommend both the anime and the manga--the manga is a little more complete in terms of plot information, but the anime is more visually appealing.

Honey & Clover

This is a series about art students trying to find their place in the world. It's a "coming of age" story, but it isn't cliched or boring. It's hilariously funny and bitterly sad at the same time. I cannot recommend this series highly enough!

Welcome to the NHK - This is about a seemingly paranoid schizophrenic NEET who is trying not to be a NEET anymore. He is helped by his neighbor, who he's creating a pornographic video game with, and a mysterious girl who wants to be his 'savior'. This is a well-done and intensely creepy anime. I watched the whole thing in about two weeks, which is an incredibly fast pace for me.

Manga

With The Light - This is a realistic/informative manga which is about a boy named Hikaru, and his family. It gives a lot of information about autism, as well as similar conditions, and it tells an engaging story at the same time. The art is adorable. Overall I found it really fun and enjoyable to read.

Oh wait, I think I saw a preview of that at MANIFEST. iF it is the one I'm thinking of it does look good and I do want to watch that. Thanks, I now know its name. ^^

I'm up to volume five of Death Note actually, but I do need to finish it. It is a good read certainly. Don't know why I dropped that.

I haven't heard of the others, but they do sound interesting! Thanks!

(And with book I tend towards fantasy, the manga's I read also have that element in it, but I'm certainly willing to try new things. ^^)

2) I-I can try this? I'm not stellar at graphics or anything like some other people, but I'll try. ;A;

3) Also can try this...! Any prompts or anything?

4) This too. Does light Rei/Kenzan sound interesting to you? :O

I'm sure whatever you come up with will be lovely. Thank-you so much!!! Of everything I probably wanted this the most, as during exams I noted the need for a sterner looking screen saver then the one I had. Again, thanks!!! XDD

And, uh, snow? I'm not really fussed. Some interaction with the Gem Beasts would be lovely but really, go nuts. :D

It does sound very interesting. ^^

3. is a cheapskate Would the next two chapters update of Trapped Thoughts: Spirits and Fusions be okay?

Um, in case you didn't know, it's that latest published fic of mine about Johan and the Gem Beasts and then Judai and Yubel as well?

Um... I can make another fic if you'd like :)

5. Hmmm... I have a fair list in my intro post here in LJ. What anime genres are you more inclined to? Or are you willing to see something new?
From: [identity profile] cheeky-eyes.livejournal.com
Oooh. I did enjoy the first chapter of that a lot so that would be very nice! ^^ (And you can write another if you want, but I don't mind. I'm sure it would be fantastic anyway.)

Oh yes, I will have to look into some of them too. And I'm pretty open to anything really. New is good.

No worries ^^

Okay, then I'll try. I might dish out a mega update before Christmas or New Year's orz

All right then, here are some...

Aria (manga) - This is one of the best slice-of-life manga I've read. Plus it has very stellar and accurate art. It's the story of Akari, a young girl who goes to Mars, which has been renamed Aqua and has been turned into a livable place. She goes to Neo-Venezia, a city in the spirit of Venice in Earth where the walkways are water canals. It's a life story about how she aims to be a good undine or a boat rower. Genres are mainly humor and fantasy.

Fate/Stay Night (anime) - This one is about action. If you'd like epic fighting without too much cliche shounen action, this is good to watch. However, it has a very deep story behind that summary you will often see~

Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha (anime)- EPIC mahou shoujo fighting cannot get anymore epic than this. Also has a heart-rending plotline that borders on shoujo-ai, if you're into that.

Code Geass (anime) - A show with one of the most intricate plots ever. Can't watch this without your head undergoing a philosophy and morality spin :P
