I was sitting at my desk the other day writing some Christmas cards (lol it’s my dining table, I don’t have a desk *cries*) and I was suddenly struck by a thought.
What would I write if I were writing a Christmas card to my favourite characters?
And voila this post was born.
My sweet, Antari son. Please take a break this Christmas. Let someone else save Red London for a change. I’m sure Lila would be happy to step up, although there would probably be a lot more explosions and things being accidentally set on fire than when you’re saving the day.
OK maybe you and Lila both take a break and let Rhy handle things diplomatically. And please stop letting danger find you this Christmas. Take a load off and have some downtime. You’ve earned it.
Also, you never know, you might find another side to your coat this Christmas.
Love Kate, who just wants you to be safe
You’ve had an absolutely incredible year.
You saved a Kingdom, fell in love, and brought people together.
And a few other specific things I can’t mention because spoilers.
But you’ve been a feminist icon and I love you. Hope you get lots of oranges in your stocking this year.
Have a wonderful holiday with your family now that your adventures have concluded. Please keep whispering stories to dragons and bringing magic into the world.
All the best,
It’s been a tough year, but you’re strong, determined, and powerful, and I have so much love and respect for you. Make sure my soft cinnamon roll Jihoon stays out of trouble this Christmas. Give him lots of chocolate and mince pies. He’ll like that.
Dear Victor Vale,
Maybe stop killing people this Christmas?
Dear Kaz Brekker,
No schemes this Christmas, OK? No heists. No plots. Just relax. Help Inej put the tree up and buy Nina some waffles from a market. And make sure to leave some mistletoe lying around when Jesper and Wylan arrive.
I love you, but you’ve got to stop getting hurt, it’s not good for either of our hearts.
Take Elisabeth for mulled wine and put the tree up together.
Also, if you know of any libraries she’s not been to, you should definitely take her. That would be a great Christmas present.
Love, Your Mom
Dear Nick and Charlie,
You guys are wonderful and Christmas is a great season to spend even more time together. Go to some Christmas markets, wrap presents, and put up decorations. My heart will melt.
Lots and lots and lots of love,
Which characters would you write a Christmas card to? What would you say?
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you all if you celebrate!
