Author's Notes: leo_draconis, it was such an honour to have the opportunity to write for you. You said you can't resist a lovely holiday fic, so I kind of went for the ultimate one. I hope you enjoy it. With thanks to K for cheerleading and handholding. All my love to C who was online and chatting when I said, "oh, wouldn't a Drarry Christmas Carol be deliciously cracky" and who then made me see it didn't need to be cracky and would totally work. She also helped place HP characters in their Dickensian roles. And, as usual, love and my eternal gratitude to L, for beta duties, title help, making my words make sense and, in this case, the best one-liner in the story. ♥
