Summary: We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty.
Why This Must Be Read: This is 100% not what one would call seasonal at the moment. But either save it for next December or read it now, because it's a wonderful merger of our band of big damn heroes and a wonderful body of tradition from Earth-That-Way, however unintentional on the crew's part. fox1013 nails characterizations, and I swear you can feel warm or cool from the writing at different points.
