Favourite Uncle - Ben Aaronovitch
Lies Sleeping bonus story, Waterstones Exclusive.

So as fans of the Rivers of London series will already know, Ben Aaronovitch gives Waterstones (a chain of bookstores in the UK) an exclusive short story for the first edition of each new novel.

This one is about Abigail, and fair warning it is deeply heart wrenching, and also explains so much about her. I know it certainly answers some of the questions I know many of us have had about her for a good while now.

So, for your reading pleasure: Favourite Uncle, by Ben Aaronovitch.

Jól - shukyou
A solitary man meets a friend in the snow.

It was difficult to believe in such a chill, even as Hrolf stepped out into it. Breathing it in was like taking a blow to the chest every time. With his hands, hobbled as they were in fur-lined mittens, he redoubled the scarf around his mouth and nose. The morning sky was the clear blue-grey of a bird's egg, but he would not see the sun's weak winter face today, not this late in the year. It would give him enough light, though, to do what was needed.

All I Want for Christmas is You (to Help Me Find Evidence to Take Down a Brainwashing, Kidnapping Cult) - Margo_Kim
"You told there was an emergency,” Bell said.
“He told me there was a dinner party,” Ms. Hudson said, bringing out a fresh plate of sugar cookies for the detective.
“He told me nothing,” Joan said, “and now I’m working on Christmas Eve.”
“Yes, it’s a Christmas miracle,” Sherlock said. “Watson here was just complaining to me that she had nothing to do tonight.”
Christmas Eve with Sherlock involves exactly as much casework as you would expect. It's a good thing Joan enjoys the work. The fact that Ms. Hudson is there to keep her company doesn't hurt either.

Harriet also has a one guinea budget for Peter's present, but she has had the good sense to ask for assistance from Miss Climpson. (And sometimes the best presents are the ones you make yourself.)

Brendon Urie would call himself an ordinary guy. Spencer Smith would call him stupidly hot, if he weren't about to destroy Brendon's career. A rich, successful journalist and food critic, Spencer aims to write a scathing review of Brendon's little muffin and cupcake shop. He never mixes business with pleasure. But the secrets Brendon's keeping intrigue Spencer, and his naivety has caught Spencer off guard. He's entranced with the little muffin cupcake shop and his neighbour Jon's coffee shop.

What's happened to him? He's being ridiculous! The Christmas-coated town has gone to his head. Spencer's best friend, literary critic Ryan Ross, thinks that the small-town boy has unlocked the city slicker's heart.

...Yeah, this is kind of but not quite that story.

The Best Revenge - CWW
“I’m going to do what I do every Christmas,” he told me. I thought I caught an odd note of determination in his voice. “I’m going to go to the best restaurant in whatever city I’m in, order the most expensive dinner on the menu, choose the best wine, and follow it all with the richest dessert they serve.”

This sounded more like a mission than dinner plans to me. “If you don’t mind,” I said after a moment of consideration, “I’ll pass.”

If he was disappointed, he was too proud to let me see it. He merely shrugged and said, “Suit yourself. The invitation stands.”

All Seated on the Ground - connie willis
accessible via the wayback machine.

the one where the aliens come to earth and just don' anything, don't react to anything, despite what people try. And then all of a sudden they do: take a seat at the line "all seated on the ground" from the muzak playing at a mall at christmas time, and everyone's trying to figure out WHY and WHAT CHANGED and stuff. And there's parallels with the pov character's aunt judith's judgy face, and a rather adorable developing romance between the pov character and the choir director dude. And basically it's just a great story all-round and I love it.
