Author's Notes: November Snowflake, your stories have given me so much pleasure over the years; I hope that this gift helps to repay a little of that. Happy H/D Holidays to you and to everyone else playing and reading in this fest! And especially to the mods, who have given us so many gifts over the years, and to my betas, who are a treasure beyond price.
