Yes, I'm doing this meme again this year. Yes, even though I already did a fandom wishlist. Because people keep asking me what I want for Christmas and I can't think of anything I want except the Pros DVDs and I bought them for myself. And then when I went to start this I still couldn't think of anything so I pretty much copied what I wrote last year.

How it works )

My Wishlist:

1) Peace, love, and understanding. ...Yeah, I'm holding my breath.

2) Nifty Overpriced Tech: this looks like it would be awesome.

3) My wishlist is here.

4) A interesting calendar for my wall. I asked for this last year and got no less than four.

5) Donations to good causes that I won't be donating to because I am poor. These include Friends Committee on National Legislation, American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood, Right Sharing of World Resources, Leadership Initiatives which I said a few words about here, 1Well which is a cool SVC org at the Affinity Lab where I work, and more about them here, Heifer International, Christian Peacemaker Teams, any org working in or based in Chiapas, any Fair Trade group, and any environmentalist group. The ones that come immediately to mind are the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Sierra Club and the Nature Conservancy. On the subject of environmentalism, I haven't researched carbon offsets enough to know which ones aren't bullshit, but if you happen to know, let me know please.

Two more places that I've worked at so they have special meaning to me, which are also in need of money but won't give you the same degree of "I'm helping solve big important issues and helping humanity in general" charitable-giving feeling, are William Penn House and Olney Friends School.

6) A higher-paying, enjoyable job that could utilize my education. Also a swift kick in the butt to get me to apply for said job.

7) Interesting socks. Especially kneesocks.

8) I want a subscription to The New York Review of Books but I always feel guilty when I receive this because I never read it the whole way through; I just haven't the time! Other mags I'd like are Cook's Illustrated and Discover.

9) Hugs. Lots and lots of hugs.

10) To magically get into grad school without applying. Also, to magically speak German. The two are only vaguely related.

11) Okay, so this list is only supposed to have ten items. But I'm not good with boxes, and I'm not good at fitting Dharma into my life, so. I'd like a direct realization of emptiness. That's not much to ask for, is it? It's not like I'm asking for enlightenment...

12) Again, not so good with the number thing. Catie Curtis's CD Long Night Moon. Or My Shirt Looks Good on You or A Crash Course in Roses.

13) For my leather coat with the inexplicable stain to come back from the drycleaners good as new! Preeeetty please? I was not given much cause for hope by the drycleaner's staff. In fact, they looked at me like I was nuts. Perhaps because I could not explain a huge, white stain on the side of my leather coat. Perhaps also because I dared to ask how they could have a sign guaranteeing same-day service, then tell me it'll take them three weeks to clean the coat. And no promises that it won't come out two different colors. Woe. Glee! Good as new! Thank you, Christmas gremlins!

14) Kombucha mushrooms. A customer at the Coop was going to give me some but then I think she thought I was hitting on her and so she never did. I spend way too much money on kombucha. It leaves all you coffee freaks in the dust.

15) Fuck it. I want a pony!

I'm adding this for just as a note to myself, really. It's a list of fandom-related things that I want and really can't afford or can't get ahold of cause, like, the zines are out of print or the author threw a hissyfit and stomped out of fandom and took all her stories with her (or so I'm told; who knows what really happened--fan history is written by those who stick around).
Work in progress--I'm adding things slowly to this list. Gonna start with Pros fandom--brand new (to me), but already belov'd.

The Professionals

The DVD boxed set Yeah, I broke down and bought it. My excuse to myself is that my brother was going to buy it for me otherwise, and he really couldn't afford it.

#2 and #3 in Jane Carnall's "Fox and Wolf" trilogy. Is this online anywhere? If so, I can't find it.

Various zines )
Somebody to write me a Stuart/Doyle fic. Because I heart Stuart. Of course my OTP is Bodie/Doyle so I want Bodie to find out and be angsty and jealous but unwilling to admit he's jealous, but I want Stuart and Doyle to snark at each other and at Bodie. I've got a feeling if I want this fanfic, I'm going to have to write it myself. Nobody else in this fandom seems to share my Stuart-love. This might have something to do with the fact that he appears in a grand total of one episode and is a bit of a dick, but I heart him anyways.

Podfic! Fanfic, read aloud. Sometimes, but not always, by the author. There is, sadly, no Professionals podfic. Woe. Yep, this is another thing I'm going to have to do if I want it. I wonder what kind of equipment I'd need?

So, I know this is... wrong... but I want to see The New Professionals. I already know I won't like it, but I want to see it. It's like--it's like Galactica 1980, right? You know it's a trainwreck, but it's a canon trainwreck so you want to see it! ...But then you discover that accepting it as canon means you have to accept that Starbuck died stranded and alone on a barren planet. Which is so not cool. I don't have high hopes for this series, but I do want to see it. Just to know.

Since this is more of a dreamlist than a wishlist, I'll stick this on: I want to see The Chief as well. Which, well, if you thought it was hard for an American to get ahold of a popular '70s British show...

...The novelizations! Because it's *almost* canon!

Starsky & Hutch

Season 4 DVDs. Yes, Season 4 sucked. But I have the other three seasons, and I have great memories of lounging around Leonard's cabin naked watching them. So I want the last season.

The Lone Gunmen

I want the It Takes All Kinds archive back up. Because I firmly believe that it is a fandom tragedy when an archive goes down, especially for small fandoms like this one.

D. Sidhe to update her hilarious, cracked-out, had-me-laughing-so-hard-I-hurt Caffeine, Conspiracies, And The Fortean Nature of Fishes. I spent days reading this series last Christmas. Stories like this are the reason fanfiction was invented.

Also I want the DVDs. I totally cannot justify this to myself as I have all the eps on my laptop.

Law & Order

Yes! NBC gave us Season 6 on DVD! Now give us Season 7! And, you know, Seasons 8-18! Also, get my library to buy them so that I don't have to!

And yeah, I know this fandom is ancient by internet standards, but it's incredibly frustrating to know that there was once good Logan/Stone fic out there that people actually recced, and now there's like, three stories still on the 'net.

The Practice

Best law show ever. So why don't they put more than the first season out on DVD?? *pouts*

Also, some decent fanfic for this show. Am I just not looking in the right places?

Lord of the Rings

There's this fanfic that was written back before the movies. It's gen. It's about three paragraphs long. It's about Legolas, to whom I have never been partial. It remains the best fanfic I have ever read. And I can't find it anywhere.

New Battlestar Galactica

Somebody to watch Season 3 with.
No, scratch that. Somebody to watch Season 3 with who does not believe that Sarah Palin is going to Save America From Itself in 2012.
