[She writes it, timed to post when normal people are asleep]

so good news bad news, i got into this art program out of state where they don't need like a ged to let you in or whatever and i found out the girl i was with at the place from before is dead, so. it's kind of like the universe doing its thing. i'm bailing, i guess and i don't want the super awkward stuff so you can write me [email address] but not here. i figured one last town thing was kind of the goodbye party. i love you and i'll visit maybe when i'm on a break and not super poor.


[Not a forum post. She sends the latest thing learned in a tin to the last address she has, and the note is on sketchpad-paper, folded in half on top of the cake, with an email address for contact.]

i hate goodbyes so it's not a goodbye? thank you for the lessons, i'm way better at not burning stuff to shit now. not-goodbye, H]


[They get a proper card, sent through the mail like a normal human. In it, there's a longer snippet from the course that she's going on, a program of classes and she's scrawled on it 'thank you for believing i could do it'. Inside, it's a giant, hand-illuminated 'thank you' and not a lot else, apart from email address.]

[Clary House: past and present]

so hey, thanks for being awesome people to live with. i'm kind of leaving town, which i figured i should probably say but Destiny, i paid rent through April and you shouldn't have any problem with getting someone cool to live here, it's a really nice place.

[And after all the above, forum posts bounce-back.]

[She links to an external file hosted on the college server. It's fruit. OK, it's not shit-hot but it's color which is not her thing and it's not ink pen and pencil which is not her thing.]

class is way better than it ever was when I was a kid. how you doing after the shit with the nightmares?

[delivery: Misha B/Damian W]

[She sends it late, because it was meant to go before the nightmares locked the town down when the guy who'd run the class had posted the recipe on Instagram or something. So she sends halwa in a tin that looks like it held super-cheap candy bought over Christmas. Holly sticks a note on the front, a square of art-book paper and the scrawl is black ink in thin artist-nib pen, 'I don't think I screwed this up. H']

[Newt P]

hey. are you OK?

[Destiny S]

[because Destiny is clearly back in town.] soo. you're back?

[Patrick G]

[Similarly, because Patrick is clearly gone.] uh, hey, is everything OK?


I heard the weirdest story last night and I think I want to believe it's true.

You still around, little bird?

[Rory B/"Sparkles"]
Went by the club and didn't see you there. Day off or kiss off for good, kid? Just tell me you didn't get eaten by a dog.

[Rory B/Claire J]
I appreciate the help. Let me make it up to you sometime.

[Rory B/Janus A]
Surely you're still around. Your knack for self-preservation surpasses the shelf life of a fucking nuclear twinkie. Tell me what I missed.

[delivery to atticus m.]

[It's a French press and some good coffee samples (3 samples, French press ground) delivered to his office at the University. (She looked him up online.) There's a note in a simple card in loopy handwriting and purple pen. I assume all professors like coffee. I went to NM. And I don't know what to do to thank you, so let a girl know. Best, Steph]

[delivery to tim d.]

[A plain manila envelope arrives at the precinct with some names of people to talk to re: that case of the pornography ring he's working on. It's typed up in Times New Roman on a plain piece of printer paper. There's no signature, but if he listens to rumors around town, he might be able to connect the dots.]

reece e, dahl h, holly r, daniel w, & phonecall to pat g

I just got home and I can't believe you. All of these presents. You are Christmas bananas. The animals all love you very much and Wyatt is going to be entertained until the end of time. Thank you so much, Reece.

Dahl, thank you for the offer on babysitting. I'll be taking you up on it soon.

Wyatt and I ate the candy for breakfast. It was amazing, thank you.

I'm sort of speechless, Daniel. I don't know what I did to deserve these earrings, but they're very beautiful.

[Magic. It comes in a bottle. A fine, sparkling dust or a liquid potion. It's not always consistent. One pinch and it snows, light, almost warm flakes that land and sit on skin and in hair. A drop in a cup and it's full to frothing with eggnog, nutmeg, rum, or maybe hot cocoa and marshmallows. Once it runs out, however, it's gone, but holiday magic wouldn't be holiday magic if it lasted all year.]

[Cat + Eddie + Steph]

[A tree is erected in the library at the manor. Another is placed in the foyer. Both are professionally decorated and huge. The manor itself is decorated, as well, with garland, holly, lights, and bulbs. And when snow begins to fall and stick, passersby, those who like to trawl the lakeside mansions for photos, come and sit outside the gates to stare and photograph.

The carnival is decked out, as well, with a 30-foot Christmas tree in the main tent.]

I will have food provided on the 25th. If you wish to celebrate, it will be at the manor. Those at the carnival will be invited. You may invite whoever else you desire.

I hear I'm doing a shitty job keeping up with everybody, so how's it going? Anything terrible happen recently? What'd you ask your secret santa for? I'm going cowboy hat.

[Holly R]

Hello, I'll be your Secret Santa for the remainder of this holiday season. For your safety, please keep all your arms and legs in the sleigh at all times, and don't feed the Reindeer chili cheese fries or we're all going to regret it.

Dec. 1st, 2017




if the snow is the way the Christmas holidays roll round here, bring it on. way better than the parties. what can they pull off for a tree going up, goodwill and cheer in the peppermint sticks?

not that it kept the neighbors quiet for long. the guy with the extremely annoyed girlfriend? they're yelling. I think she's burning his clothes, she could be trying to keep warm, idk.
