Thank you Kizzie79, Darkestboy and Srtawalker, for your lovely replies. I guess, I really needed to vent last night, because with a large chunk of the frustrations gone, I finally relaxed. I found a title !
I intent to take your advice: I will relax tonight, maybe watch me some Matthew Rhys, have an early night and see what I can come up with tomorrow. If things go as I hope, I will start posting the Christmas-fic in about 28 hours from now.
