A year on and this is just as wonderful, Luxe - packed with all the longing and regret and hope and tenderness and difficulty that make Moonlight so very special. This is a perfect evocation of the true spirit of the show and it was fabulous to come back for a seasonal re-read.

What a beautiful Moonlight christmas episode..even read in spring! Christmas time can be a pain whether you are alone or not..Mick's memories are so strong, then he put his Christmas moments with little Beth on top, now Christmas must really be hell..unless he is given another chance!

I've decided to read a Christmas story every day, in honor of the season. And I'm so happy to have picked this one. It brings back what I loved so much in the early episodes: Mick's yearning for the warmth of humanity, and his competing fear of being discovered for the monster he felt he was. Christmas was such a cold and lonely time for him. (But I'm glad he wore those red pajama bottoms to mark the season.) :laugh:

And now, the little girl that was has become a woman who is about to break him out of his lonely existence. There's so much possibility and hope in this story, despite the sad tone. Merry Christmas, Mick! :rose:

I'm glad this story got bumped this, Luxe. Going through life alone is hard enough, but it's worse at the holidays. Your story is one of hope that perhaps something good will come out of tragedy. While an old and comforting relationship had to end, another one may yet begin.

Allie! Darkstar! Librarian! :ghug:

Thank you all for the re read and kind words. I'd totally forgotten about this one. I hope life is treating you all well and that you're all continuing with your writing. I told Allie recently that this place is still special me. It provides a touchstone I don't know quite how to explain. I'm very glad you're all still here. Merry Christmas my friends!
