Ah. That was perfect! I do love this series, and a look at who Gary might have been. It seemed a waste that we only saw him in one episode; the character had such great potential, as you've highlighted in this AU series. One of your great gifts is breathing life into one-off characters, making them more real, and giving us the impetus to care about their lives - to laugh, cry and celebrate along with them.

I like, too that the three cadets who conspired for snow in this piece had a history with it and Christmas memories - some pleasant, others not so much.

BTW, love the picture of a snow-capped SF - adds credence and a sense of whimsy to this holiday piece. Excellent job, as always. :D

Author's Response: I'm glad it worked ultimately as it came from nowhere this story. Wish I could do so much more with Mitchell, I abandoned my story of regular Mitch and Kirk in their days pre-Enterprise. The SF picture is about the only one I could find beyond one of the early 20th Century. Funnily, snow is expected this week in the Bay Area they say. Thanks again LBD, for more besides as always.
