    Summary

    When Alex makes himself look over to meet Michael’s eyes, his breath catches at the open adoration on his cowboy’s face. ‘Feliz Navidad’ is blaring from the horns under the gazebo, and mothers are chasing good-naturedly after their shrieking children. There’s desert-inappropriate artificial pine wound around every streetlight and Michael Guerin is looking at Alex like there’s nothing else worth seeing in either of their galaxies. This is what every Christmas song that Alex has ever flipped the radio station to avoid says he should want. And he does want it. But the flip side of wanting, for Alex, has always been wondering why he deserves it, when so many people don’t get what they want. When so many people don’t get what they want because of the things Alex’s family has done.

    It suddenly all feels like nowhere near enough, the few things he’s offered, to put this soft, awestruck look on Michael’s face.

     

     

    Alex Manes has everything he wants for Christmas, and no idea why someone with his legacy deserves it.

    Mimi Deluca sees things no one else can-- including a world where the Manes Men never existed.

    It's a Wonderful (Roswellian) Life.

    Alex should get home before the storm comes. That's what he says he's going to do. And then a stupid song on the radio throws a wrench into those plans by wrenching his heart.
