Author's Notes: Dear red_rahl, I do hope you enjoy this tale of holiday mischief and magic. I went with your requests for humor, snark, plots involving interesting/unique perspectives or aspects of the wizarding world, and the Malfoys as doting parents, especially Narcissa. I hope it achieves the status of an emotional journey with a good ending and as for working well as a team and both guys secretly pining for the other, well, you’ll have to read on to see. Thanks to the marvellous mods and their incredible care and feeding of the fest! Happy H/D Holidays!
