A cuckoo in the Christmas tree...
For those of you who'd like to know why it took so long...
I blame anaross.
Not that it's her fault. But while I was writing this I had just begun helping to put her stories up on AO3 and I came across one I hadn't read before, The Choice. As usual, it's a great story, but it pretty much made the same point I was hoping to go for with this Christmas ditty, only pointier. It's hard for me to work up any enthusiasm for treading over the same ground as my betters, so I had to psych myself up to finish this, with just one chapter to go. Hopefully, it's different enough. *fingers crossed*
The holidays have been lovely, if busy. I am looking forward to a long weekend without many obligations, even of the fic variety. Maybe I'll catch up on some entertainment. Maybe I'll take a walk among the trees or drag myself to a museum. Anything could happen!
I wish a wonderful New Year to you all!
