    5 times the First Order let Poe go because he was just so nice

    No seriously, 5 times Poe was captured by the First Order and whoever was in charge just let him go because Poe turned on the charm. Maybe he complimented Phasma's shiny helmet or Hux' new haircut.

    Summary

    In this modern take on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Tony Stark is a wildly successful television executive whose cold ambition and curmudgeonly nature has driven away the love of his life, Pepper Potts. But after years of treating his assistant, Steve Rogers, badly, blowing off his best friend, Rhodey, for the holidays once again, and firing a staff member on the day before Christmas Eve, Tony is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past.

    Summary

    This is a fanfiction exploration of an "alternative reality" to the canon Sherlock Holmes adventures, The Final Problem and the Adventure of the Empty House. The first famously killed off Sherlock Holmes, throwing all of London into mourning and making Arthur Conan Doyle the recipient of much hate mail. Still he held out, keeping his most famous creation "dead" it took him 10 years to relent. When he did resurrect Holmes, it was in the Adventure of the Empty House, and only three years of "Holmes universe" time had been lost--the great "hiatus" as Sherlockians refer to it.

    That in itself is a time honored pastiche tradition, the talented Nicholas Meyer beautifully used an "alternate reality" for the hiatus in his The Seven Percent Solution, a wonderful novel and great film--now almost impossible to find, as it is not in print in DVD.

    This story works best with some familiarity with canon. It hypothesizes that the published accounts were in reality, "unreliable narrative" and offers alternative scenes--using the SH09 film universe, already an reimagining, though very much in the spirit of canon and using many lines from the same-- events, presences and absences.
