may as well do one of these this year. no obligation

Step One:
Make an post. It can be public or friends only, whatever you’re most comfortable with. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes, and these wishes can be anything - from simple (a fan fiction written about your favorite pairing), to medium (a DVD you want), to really extravagant (a brand new laptop or car).

Just make sure these are wishes for things you really truly want.

Step Two:
Skim through your friends list and see who has posted their own wish lists. Then - and this is the most important part - if you find a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make sure that person’s wish comes true.

Sometimes a person’s trash is another person’s treasure. If you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you’re never going to use, give it to someone who wants it.

Step Three:
Post this wish list any time after November 1st.
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 fairy - 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. Pokemon Sumo fic featuring Gladion, Lillie, or both.
2. line art, or recs for line art sources, with fantasy themes. the less pin up armor the better.
3. webcomic recs. fantasy or steampunk, female led preferred, as little romance as possible

Feminist book recs: (Though I can't know which of these you might have read.)

At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance--A New History of the Civil Rights Movement from Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power, by Danielle L. McGuire. Pretty much what it says on the tin. Also gives full credit to Rosa Parks for her years of activism beyond that one moment on a bus.

Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the Meaning of Liberty, by Dorothy Roberts. Absolutely required reading.

Women, Race, and Class, by Angela Davis. This is a classic that you may have already read, but if you haven't, now is the time.

This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, edited by CherrĂ­e L. Moraga and Gloria E. AnzaldĂșa. Another classic, and another one you may know already, but, again, invaluable.

Dragon Ladies: Asian American Feminists Breathe Fire, edited by Sonia Shah. This is sadly out of print, but well worth it if you can track it down.

Colonize This!: Young Women of Color on Today's Feminism, edited by Daisy Hernandez. This one is so good. Has a great variety of viewpoints.

Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity, by Julia Serano. One of the best places to start unpacking transphobia, but also of great value to the experienced reader.

Tea recs:

For high quality basics, I like TeaGschwendner Tea Store. I love their Yuunan Gold, which has a distinctly caramel like flavor. (I'm drinking it right now!)

Argo Tea has a lot of fun blends. I really like their strawberry pepper blend. (Come to Chicago, and we'll check out their cafes.)

Dryad Tea has some of my very favorite blends. And so many! I love the Chemical Worker's Tea, Keeper Tea, and Pixie.

Adagio Teas is a little more well known, but if you haven't checked out their extensive, customer created selection of fandom inspired teas, you really need to. I also really like some of their oolongs, but so expensive!
