Just caught a mention of this on Twitter.

Having trouble accessing the link to it. I'll keep trying.

The site crashed almost immediately and the story had to be rehosted, this one should work.

What a way to make sure everyone reads Peace Talks when it comes out!

I did like it, it was sweet and sad.

That was nice, and it's also a sign that his work on Peace Talks is going well.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I'd say it was a sign that Peace Talks is more or less done.

Hope everyone had a good holiday.

Loved this story. A mix of humor and Pathos that only Jim Butcher can do. What a great Christmas gift!

Did she? Molly is rich now. Maybe it was just Molly’s gift to Harry. :-)

Hmm... There weren't any mentions about Murphy. 
I mean we did have that twitter post of Jim that was an alleged jest about him writing Murphy's funeral.

I wonder what happened to her.  How sidelined is she.  Was she removed from the board in some way? Does the characters on screen emotional states allow for the possibility that something significant had happened to Murphy?


I found it interesting that Mab experienced pain when Harry posed the possibility of not accepting the gift on Maggie's behalf.  And that she wanted Maggie to know who gave it to her.
"That's it???  It's really that simple? 
LIES!  Damn lies!  It's a cover up!
