Offered: Yuuko Care Package  
I am officially insane, and so are the other two mods, as they told me I should totally do this when I came up with the idea. So!

The high bidder on this auction will receive a care package made up of items from the storehouse of Yuuko from CLAMP's xxxHolic and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.

What, exactly, would be in it? That would be telling! However, it may or may not contain: secrets, foodstuffs, exotic perfumes, faded letters, art, mysterious objects with esoteric instructions, photographs, tragic histories, tear-stained diaries, maps of nonexistent places, or any amount of other items.

(The high bidder will be asked to provide information on allergies and phobias, so that the package will be enjoyed instead of feared.)

When will this box of marvels be mailed? By October 1st, as there needs to be time for me Watanuki to rummage through the storehouse and assemble just the right items and label them properly.

I was looking at all the care packages offered, thinking they were really cool, and then I remembered that a decade ago I used to make little books of completely random things (lists of emails, art pieces, stream-of-consciousness stories, etc.) and give them away to friends. The two ideas fused and become this. XD

I don't even know what Yuuko from CLAMP's xxxHolic and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles IS and I am drooling over what might or might not be in this package. If it weren't (anime? manga?) themed I'd absolutely be all over this.

maps of nonexistent places? tearstained diaries? secrets? tragic histories? my heart is absolutely aflutter. . .

Yuuko is one of the main characters in the manga (and anime, although I haven't seen it) xxxHolic. She is one of the old fantasy stock characters - the proprietor of a magical shop. She deals in granting wishes, taking in payment from the client something that's of equivalent power or worth. So, as you can tell, her storehouse is packed full of strange and wonderful things. :D She is also quite fond of alcohol, food, and teasing her hapless helper Watanuki.

I suspect that the package will probably contain a lot of references to the manga, though. XD

My wallet will not allow for such a thing currently, but I would love to see pictures once this thing is assembled!

I'll keep records and probably post them after the recipient gets it! XD

Bidding has reached my self-imposed limit, but I have got to say that is such an awesome idea. <3
