'Tis the season for long wishlists and closet investigation! Yay! :D

What does your MC want as a present for these holidays?

Mine wants a new bonnet that's not a hand-me-down from her sisters and a litter of puppies. Can't have too many puppies!

He wants his wife back.

Mine, too. But he knows that's not possible, so he'd settle for acceptance from his family.

Oooh...cool. I like this idea.

Let me think - she's a 15 year old who believes she reached her "word quota" meaning, she no longer speaks. In silence, she heard her crush murder her friend.

She probably just wants understanding.

Your MCs are not materialistic enough LOL!

Alpha, I want to read your novel.

My MC would also like a pair of sensible boots for walking and for a major social shift that allowed girls to wear trousers. Dresses are not good for climbing.

Mine wants his (ex-ish-kinda) girlfriend to stop long enough so he can catch her. And a new boat would be nice. And lots of loverly money. And a new shirt (his GF trashed the last one. With her sword. While he was wearing it :D) in a really BRIGHT colour.

Thump I LOVE LOVE LOVE your avatar!! Just thought I would share that.

Alice would like for the war to end, for her father to be able to save his factory, and maybe a new dress or bonnet would be nice.

Casternen wants to see his girlfriend. Preferably at the Library. Then he would have his love and still be in the most prestigious school evah.

Harley wants David out of jail (and craft supplies! Fabric, thread needles, how to books, etc.)

David wants his old face back (and Force Unleashed for XBox 360)

Sergii wants the vukodlak destroyed (and a lint roller)

Adam

A good night's sleep in a place where his enemies can't find him. Also, a heat-proof mobile phone. ;)

Cyanide wants peace on Earth so she can submit to the pleasures of the flesh with her lesbian lover. Currently she wants God and Satan out of the way. She could also do with a new sword in about 10,000 words, as her current one is going into the Abyss before the final battle. She wants Kalvern to stop being a prick and actually help her, but doesn't expect that to ever happen.

Kalvern wants Cyanide thrown into the Abyss, her lover tortured for all eternity, and for himself to overthrow Satan and lead the war against God, preferably to a victory. He also wants Death to stop being difficult and help him out.

Both of them probably want a few stiff drinks, a pack of cigarettes, and a truce on Christmas day. :)

ETA: And MUSIC!

Sergii's trying to destroy my MC? But she's nice... often. She'd totally give him a lint roller :D Granted, she might kill him, too, but we all have our quirks.

My MC wants herself a top of the line prosthetic body and maybe a new watch since her old one got smashed.

My demon, Greedy, wants to be left alone and have his way with more of these mortals, and with his new job title he is hoping it doesn't crimp his style.
(He just wants to have fun......)

Your MC is a vukodlak? Awesome. Sergii would be tempted by the lint roller but he would be on guard. The vukodlak he wants out of the picture is currently stalking residents of uptown New Orleans. And is mos def a dude.

Daemon wants his life under his own control.

Micayta wants to protect her brother and not have to fight an evil dragon mage to do it.

Avida wants to save her brother's life.

Carlan wants his girlfriend back, his brother dead, and not to be hung.

Charlie wants to get through one day of his life without being teased, beaten, chased by shadow hounds, or carted off to do slave labor in a military camp.

Ah :) Mine's the Transilvanian version -- close enough. She is trying to figure out what the hell happened to her as she escapes the Hungarian cops, gypsies, religious fanatics. Academics. Nothing a few bribes and heart-burnings won't fix, for the most part :D

Alister wants...well he wants me to revise his story, but other than that he probably just wants everyone who isn't Armand to go away.
