A/N: Merry Early Christmas! As promised, there is some festive yuletide smut, so be forewarned. Hope you like it! Of course it’s way too long, but that’s my m/o.
And, for those who are wondering, the next chapter of the 1930 AU is nearly done. You’ll see it soon, I promise!

Rae gazed out of her window at the falling snow. There wasn’t much of it, and it wasn’t sticking, but the street lamps had come on, and she could see the flakes floating down in the wide beams of light. She sighed and picked up her mug to sip from her fourth cup of hot cocoa that day. They’d run out of milk after the third, but she compulsively made a fourth with water when her cup was empty. It was something to do, and she figured cocoa was better for her than whatever holiday treats her mum had stockpiled for the party that night.
She wouldn’t admit it to many people. but she actually loved the holidays. Yes, her birthday was only a couple of weeks before Christmas, and often got lost in the lead up to the holidays. But when she was little, she loved how the whole world decorated itself just before she celebrated her birthday. It felt like it was for her - the fairy lights in the windows and the wreaths on the doors. She even liked the stupid holiday music her mum played. Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney and of course Cliff Richard. (Well, maybe she didn’t love Cliff Richard.)
Sitting there, wearing three layers and wrapped up in a blanket, staring out at the snow, Rae was trying her best to recapture her good feelings about the holidays. Trying to separate the pain she felt from the excitement of celebrations and presents and pints of cider.
She and Finn had broken up.

You know how I feel about this fic, told you yesterday but it’s just I don’t have the words to express how happy I am every time I read something you write… (btw somebody just walked by and made this WTF? face because apparently I have a big grin on mine)…
And… I don’t know if you did this on purpose or not, but the part of Finn burying his face on Rae’s breasts was the best of the best and reminded me of the time I wasn’t sure what motorboating is and how I wished to see that in the future when I realized how awesome would that be hahahaha…
And this part “I don’t know, actually. You are a pretty ornery bloke, Finn.” hahaha I didn’t know what ornery is (I checked it after, thanks for the educational part :D) but when I read it I was like “is that a synonym of horny?!?! because I’ll take that!!” and it was like part of my question was answered almost immediately with Finn actually asking “Didja say ‘ornery’ or ‘horny’? ‘Cause one of those is DEFINITELY true.” I dieddddd… and what an adventurous couple, with her mom downstairs and everything hahaha
Why there isn’t much smut out there in this MMFD world? I don’t know but I love it :P
