Title: A Carol Sung Off Key
Rating: NC-17, adult
Content Info: *wall!sex, frottage, masturbation, somewhat unintended
voyeurism, snark, silliness, Dickens is spinning in his grave*
Summary: Seven months after the end of the war, Severus is as much of a miserable, disagreeable misanthrope as ever. Then Lupin arrives bearing a message. Said message is absurd, not to mention unoriginal. Also, Lupin makes a terrible Jacob Marley.
Disclaimer: Anything you recognize belongs to Rowling or Dickens. Anything utterly ludicrous most likely belongs to me.
Word count: ~13,900
Author Notes: My most heartfelt thanks to those who kept me from falling in the muck while I slogged my way though this and then still liked me enough afterward to beta for me. <3 (Also, I realized that my beta and support crew this time around can be abbreviated "SNERT", which, considering the tone of this fic, amuses me far more than it probably should.)
Another heap of gratitude and groveling to the snapelyholidays mods for being incalculably awesome.
In addition, Mr. Black would like to thank E. for his huge piece of meat.
Dear kinky_kneazle: When I read your list of likes, somehow "Christmas/holiday themes" and "time travel" blended in my head and produced... this. (Also, I might have taken "friends supporting the relationship" a little farther than you had in mind. *snicker*) I tried to put a bit of a new spin on an old theme here. In any case, writing for you was great fun. Hope you enjoy, and very happy holidays to you!
