    Diana Harrington is sitting at her son’s bedside reading a magazine; somehow it feels weirder to him than hell portals to another dimension, than hell creatures tearing men apart right in front of him.

    Summary

    New York City, 1916. It's winter in The City, with Christmas fast approaching. Roasted chestnuts, snow in the air, warmly-bundled sleigh rides in Central Park, the sweet sound of carolers and bells on streetcorners, nights curled up before a cozy fire, a Christmas gala to attend—possibility thrums around every corner as the vibrant city bustles away winter's chill.

    A couple from the mountain frontier of Northwestern Canada has made a long journey by steam train to visit an intrepid young NYC reporter. With them, they bring a later-in-life, long-awaited joy. . . 'Tis the season for mistletoe and Holly, after all.

    Summary

    Compliment something about me and I’ll tell you if it’s good or not.”

    Pretty Boy steps a few paces away and gestures to himself. Felix hesitates, partially because he’s nervous but partially because… well, there was just too much to say. He could talk about his thick lips, or how elegant he looked under the night sky, or his calculating, fox-like eyes that held his gaze and stripped him down to his bones the moment they first met. But it wouldn’t be genuine. Felix isn’t here to seduce him. Felix just wants to get to know him. So…

    “I like your hair.”

    A pause, and Pretty Boy blinks. “My… hair?”

    “It’s a blonde mullet, like mine,” Felix says, running a hand through his own hair. His grin grows sheepish. “You’re actually the first person I’ve seen who has one too. I don’t know, I just think that’s cool.”

    Something in Pretty Boy’s eyes soften, and the teasing air between them suddenly hangs heavy with tension; the gentle kind that creeps up your shoulders and feels like anticipation.

    “Good answer,” Pretty Boy finally says.

    or, Hyunjin gives Felix his heart but Felix realises too late that he can't give anything in return.

    Summary

    The town of Queen Anne harbour is on its last legs, so its mayor, known for his elaborate "fuckeries," devises a way to save the town by getting a factory to settle there.

Dr. Stede Bonnet has been volunteering around the world for years now, but he has a fiancee at home so he decides to do one last rotation. When he arrives in Queen Anne Harbour, he is immediately charmed both by the town and its handsome mayor.

    Summary

    Mobei Jun reached out and his hand grasped Shang Qinghua’s wrist, fingers finding his pulse and feeling it beat. “Did it snow?”

    Shang Qinghua nodded and straightened again to press into his side. “Yes. A few months of the year it would snow on and off.”

    Mobei Jun hummed. “Did you like it?”

    Shang Qinghua’s fingers flexed against Mobei Jun’s skin and he felt a tightness in his chest that quickened his breath. When he spoke, his voice came out like a whisper. “It never crosses my mind that anything could be better than this.” He paused and watched Mobei Jun’s eyes continue to search him. Shang Qinghua searched him just as deeply. “Have you ever smelled the change of the seasons?”

    _____

    Mobei Jun thinks about the snow.

    Summary

    This is the holiday story I promised. It was inspired, yes, by my love of holiday stories, Hallmark Christmas movies, and general festive goodness, but also by a post and comment I read on Reddit’s Am I The Asshole.

    Omega Dean is engaged to Alpha Bela Talbot, living in a beautiful city townhouse, working the job he’d always dreamed about as a kid- a food editor for Beautiful Living magazine. He gets word that there’s going to be a big family wedding back home in Lebanon, where Mary owns a rustic wedding venue called “Heavenly Grove”, where the family business is weddings and romance.

    Lebanon is also the town where the Alpha Dean left behind still lives with his big family. Castiel now works as a firefighter alongside his brothers and pines for the Omega that left him to chase his big city dreams.

    What will happen when Dean returns to Lebanon for the wedding?

    (Or, the story where I shove every holiday story trope I could think of into a big bag and hope it works out into something good. Tags will be added as the story grows).
