Crimson Frost: A Holiday Tradition
In 2013, I wrote a rather twisted piece of holiday fanfiction called “Crimson Frost,” based primarily on the Rankin Bass Christmas specials. Earlier this week, someone on Facebook posted that they were spending a day watching Christmas movies, and then doing a fireside reading of the story. Which is both awesome and a little twisted, considering how messed up this story is. But mostly awesome!
So here it is again for your reading pleasure, a messed-up tale that originated with a random remark about “Rudolph vs. Frosty.”
Happy holidays, all! Enjoy 🙂

Yay! I love this and had been waiting for the annual return.
I can’t look at those specials without thinking of this now.

PS. That video of the robots towing a sleigh also reminded me of this
PPS. Regarding the previous blog, why not put this up free at ebook places, since you’ve already got it formatted? It’s kinda late for this year, but super-early for next!

Mostly because with it being fanfiction, it’s not something I’m comfortable posting on any retail sites, even as a freebie. I could argue it’s parody and possibly get away with it, but it just doesn’t feel right to me.
