I'm not sure why I keep riding this emotional roller coaster, but again...just beautiful and sad. Wonderful to see Andy getting these moments, after reading One Minute. Even if he is still somewhat taking it from Scotty, it's another moment he's there peacefully and (dare I think) willingly. He may not think himself human anymore, but I like to believe these years he spends with Andy helped keep him on the path to his goal of destroying everything, rather than spiraling downward into chaos. He could have hit the red button whenever he wanted, ready or not; I like to think Andy gave him that small sparkle of hope, not just in his cause but for himself as well.
Still...love this series all around. And this was a beautiful addition to that lore.
Author's Response: I think Andy did. Remember his program code, in the main mirror arc?
He never forgot. Andy never stopped haunting him, not even to his very last breath. Thank you; that you get it, and love it, even when it kills you, makes me feel like it was worth it.

Now what to make of this find, it’s a very enigma story, as Corry talks of the hollowed out Christmas of the Mirror Universe and yet with Scotty at that late night table despite Corry misgiving any gods has long abandon them. What they have in each other and how they react together even during the seasonal melancholy of a good guess what Scotty lost, his selfish joy in having Scotty company shows maybe the Imperial government hasn’t completely destroyed the spirit of Christmas yet, despite what Corry thinks.
Author's Response: Andy definitely has his own view of things, yes. Scott... hm. Read One Minute sometime, Bill. It goes way deeper into this Mirror dynamic. I think it explains a lot of it. Thanks so much!

I loved this when I first read it-And I still do. What a chilly place the Empire is-and how sad that any "meaning" Christmas might once have had is lost to the citizens....Great job conveying that feeling!
Author's Response: Thanks much, Mistral. It's probably one of the few Mirror side-stories than can stand completely on its own as a story. The rest are all much better in context.
