Bonus Drabble 2 - "Come Play with Us"

Requested by [personal profile] brewsternorth 

“Come play with us,” Athena requests – nay, commands. You disobey Athena at your peril.

One of the perks of a long lifetime is the feeling that you can afford to put other things off in favor of having a glittery tea party with your daughters. After all, they will be small for much less time than you will be old.

So the Doctor sits on the floor of the TARDIS control room and toasts to the Queen, and to Mummy, and to Brem.

“What about me?” he asks.

They consider the question, then graciously permit him a toast as well.

Bonus Drabble 1 - Ice Skating

Requested by [personal profile] acciochocolate 

The girls want to go ice skating.

“Please, please,” they beg, leaping up and down. “Please can we go?”

They dig through the wardrobe in search of ice skates that will fit, they gather coats and hats and mittens. Brem wants hockey skates, and the Doctor finds him figure skates, and it is very tragic.

But finally, all of the kids are out on the ice and it’s snowing and the trees are twinkling with lights and the Doctor thinks it was the worth the effort.

The girls come barreling over. “We’re done now! Let’s go in for hot cocoa!”

Advent Drabble 24 - Snow

Requested by anonymous. 

“What if at the end, it’s snowing?” said Pete.

“Why would it be snowing?” asked Patrick.

“Why not?” rejoined Pete.

“I love that this is your step too far,” said Joe. “Like, we’ve got Elton John as God but we can’t have snow?”

“It’s just that it’s summertime in the rest of the videos!” Patrick protested.

“We never actually say it’s summertime,” mused Andy.

“The grass is green! We’re not wearing coats! There shouldn’t be snow!”

“What if the snow,” said Pete, “is actually blown-up pieces of Elton John’s suit?”

“I think everyone needs to smoke less weed,” Patrick announced.

 Now my mother has tested positive for covid. I would appreciate good thoughts. 

I am also very emotionally tired so forgive me not saying much more. 

Well I will say she got it from a sick student so if you're a teacher, don't stop fighting the myth that the schools are safe.

Advent Drabble 23 - Snow

Requested by [personal profile] editrx 

Some planets have endless snow and some planets have no snow and some planets have snow that’s not ash or powder or glitter (the girls love that one). On one planet, snow is a precious substance found only in single valley, and snowballs are presented on velvet cushions.

“’S funny,” Rose says. “It’s easy to forget, on Earth, just how magical snow can be.”

The Doctor looks at her and says, “Wellll, it can be easy to forget magic when you live with it too much.” He holds her hands and smiles and says, “Although I do try not to.”

Advent Drabble 22 - Hot Chocolate

Requested by setting-in-a-honeymoon

Pete finds it shoved in the back of a kitchen cabinet.

“Look what I found!” he sing-songs to Patrick, carrying mugs into him.

“What’s that?” Patrick asks miserably, sniffling.

“You said if you drank any more tea you would puke, so I made you hot chocolate!”

“Where did you get hot chocolate?” Patrick asks suspiciously, and then sneezes.

“Found it!”

“Where’d we get hot chocolate? It probably came with the apartment.”

“I’m sure it won’t kill us,” Pete says cheerfully.

Patrick supposes he’s drunk worse, and anyway, it is nice to be taken care of. He sips his hot chocolate.  PLEASE GO TO EARLGREYTEA68.DREAMWIDTH.ORG TO COMMENT ON THIS ENTRY.

Advent Drabble 21 - Snowball Fight

Requested by [personal profile] auntiesuze .

“Do you know what today is?” Harrison asked.

“Tuesday,” answered Drew.

“Wrong!”

“It’s not Tuesday?”

“It’s the day of the first snow! Do you know what the first snow means at Sidlesmith?” Harrison bounced in enthusiasm.

“Oh, no,” Drew groaned. “Let me guess. There are lots of meet-cutes involving shoveling, and mixed-up cocoa orders, and everyone falls in love while making snowpeople together.”

“Or while having a snowball fight! Come have a snowball fight with me, it’ll be very romantic.”

“Yes, because everything, even snowball fights, is romantic at Sidlesmith.”

“No, because everything is romantic with you,” Harrison corrected happily.

Sherlock Christmas

Advent Drabble 20 - Memories

Requested by MsLucySue

The thing about a mind palace was that it should have held everything securely. Every moment from Oliver’s childhood should have been perfectly stored there, on well-ordered shelves in well-laid-out rooms. And they were, they were all there. The problem was that the mind palace wasn’t perfect. It could store all the facts, but it remained impossible for Sherlock to fully recall the child he saw now as the infant he had been. He tried to remember Oliver’s feet being tiny, his speech being less precise, and utterly failed.

He didn’t need a mind palace, he needed a time machine. PLEASE GO TO EARLGREYTEA68.DREAMWIDTH.ORG TO COMMENT ON THIS ENTRY.

Advent Drabble 19 - Sherlock

Requested by [personal profile] np_complete 

The flat was in an uproar when John got back from getting milk. “What is it?” he asked, watching Sherlock dash around. “What’s happened?”

“We’ve got a case,” Sherlock answered. “A very important case. Hurry up, we must investigate.”

John hurriedly put the milk away, prepared to leave again. “What case?”

“Someone—” Sherlock knotted his scarf firmly—“has stolen Mrs. Hudson’s wreath from the front door.”

John paused. “That’s the very important case?”

“I am not going to let these hooligans destroy Mrs. Hudson’s Christmas.”

“You told her the wreath was stupid,” John pointed out.

“That’s different, let’s go.”

Advent Drabble 18 - DIY

Requested by [personal profile] rereader . 

“I think we should do it,” said Patrick.

“Yeah, totally,” Matt agreed.

The girls stared at them.

“Just to clarify,” Kylie said, “you’re talking about cutting down a tree, right?”

“It’s just a Christmas tree,” said Matt, “it’s not a magnificent oak.”

“You’ll still need to use an axe,” said Hailey. “It doesn’t seem safe.”

Hailey is doubting you,” said Kylie.

“Adam,” said Matt, “what do you think? Should we cut our own Christmas tree this year?”

“Zoom zoom,” said Adam.

“That means yes,” said Matt.

“It’s going to go well,” said Patrick.

“I’m filming all of it,” said Miranda.
