Title: Secrecy Called on Account of Winter Vacation
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: G
Spoilers: set sometime after Blue Devil #19, in Jason's Robin days
Warnings: holiday fluff, Eddie Bloomberg & Jason Todd friendship
Prompt/Fill: "Snowball Fight" from the Christmas Advent Prompts list.

Title: Adventus VII: Traditions
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- Superboy v3
Warnings: holiday fluff, one-sided Serling Roquette/Jim Harper (Guardian)
Prompt/Fill: "Mistletoe" from the Christmas Advent Prompts list.
Note: This is a side-story that doesn't deal with Kon/Von, but it takes place in the same universe (and the same Christmas season as "Adventus II")
Word Count: 1238
Summary: Serling makes a bit of a fool of herself, and Jim is oblivious. It's practically tradition at this point.
Word of the Day: velleity, noun:
1. Volition in its weakest form.
2. A mere wish, unaccompanied by an effort to obtain it.

Traditions
Have you come across the word velleity? A nice Thomistic ring to it. Volition at its lowest ebb. A small thing, a wish, a tendency. If you're low-willed, you see, you end up living in the shallowest turns and bends of your own preoccupations.
-- Don DeLillo


There are some truly time-honored traditions, especially around Christmas time. These traditions carry reminders of happier times, of childhood and family -- renewing aware of Christmas as a time to strive for peace and goodwill.

The office Christmas party, by contrast, is not one such tradition. Read more... )

Title: Adventus II: Warmth
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- mostly Superboy v3 and Young Justice v1

Title: Adventus I: Match and the Musical Mystery
Author: D.L.SchizoAuthoress
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Fortress!verse AU -- mostly Superboy v3 and references to Superboy and the Ravers v1 #5
Warnings: mild language, holiday fluff
Prompt/Fill: "Caroling" from the Christmas Advent Prompts list.
Note: "The Times" means the Times Supermarket, a chain headquartered in Honolulu. There are 25 stores spread throughout the islands.
Word Count: 855
Summary: Match is being stalked!
Word of the Day: guff, noun:
1. Empty or foolish talk; nonsense.
2. Insolent talk.

Timeline Note: Superboy's first birthday is shown in "Superboy v3 Annual #2" (1995). The Christmas shown in "Superboy and the Ravers #5" (1997) is assumed to be his second Christmas, because I think the Metropolis Kid debuted in the summertime? I'm not 100% certain.

Soon after the events of Ravers #6, Superboy is kidnapped by the Agenda (Superboy v3 #34-36) and Match is created. So Match's first Christmas takes place before his first birthday -- timelinewise, he was likely created some time in January.
