One of these days we’ll get someone less incompetent or evil running things around these parts during Christmastime. Vera’s not making it easy to focus on the holiday spirit this year. It’s kind of ironic how my Christmas arcs sort of became my least happy stories over time, but if it helps, you can lump these Christmas espionage and politic tales in with the more actiony Christmas stories, like Die Hard. Die Hard took place during Christmastime, and if Die Hard can do Christmas, so can I.

Note: I never actually watched Die Hard.
