Normally I am very wary of holiday stories as they tend to be sappy or even worse out of character, but this one was excellent. Monty seemed to me to be very in character and this story actually taught something. Great job!

An amazing story. It took me completely by surprise. I could see Monty do such a thing regarding the deer, thinking those thoughts, and your last twist is not out of the question.

I don't see much of a feel-good-feeling is this, in fact it seems incomplete.
| Joe Stoppinghem chapter 1 . 12/25/2010
Nice fable wrapped in the KP Universe.
The story flowed well and the lesson was a very good one too.
One can determine the how good a story is by wanting to hear the next chapter, even though they know it's a one shot.
This is one of those stories.
Thanks for the time and effort you've put in this, I enjoyed reading it.

I was already familiar with the outline of the story.
You made it work out very well with Monkey Fist as the main character, also the descriptions around the main story line fitted very well.
Keep up the good writing,

Now this was indeed good. I would have never thought to do a Christmas story with Monkey Fist. It sort of had a 'Grinch' feel to it when Fist is referring to the villagers.
The end caught me a little off guard, as I wasn't expecting the lesson there. Nice job in that aspect...
Thanks so much for participating in my contest, and Good Luck!

I remember hearing the story this is based on listening to Paul Harvey many years ago.
Nicely done interpretation!

That was just. . . beautiful. I wish I could find something else to say, but this just knocked the words right out of me. I *love* it.
Thanks for such a wonderful story, and a very Merry Christmas to you, too! :)

I wish there were better words to describe my reaction to this story, but really that just about sums it up.
I personally have been dealing with a crisis of faith, and here you have potentially swayed me a bit back towards that which I was raised to believe.
Truly inspiring, and even greater that the ending stayed hidden until the reveal.
Truly nice work. :)

Keep the good writing.

Good story. Nice work, thanks!

Inspirational. A revealation to the misguided English Lord.
Nice way to do it Daccu.

Very nicely done here, daccu, as all your stories basically are. I really enjoy your writing style, especially in the KP universe. Keep up the great work!
| Muzzlehatch chapter 1 . 12/8/2010
Wonderful parable. Thanks for writing it. By the way, don't ever apologise for your religious beliefs, it's a bad habit to get into, especially these days. How often do you hear an atheist apologise?

For all that Fiske coveted and disdained, his Midnight Epiphany answered so many things he took for granted or arrogantly assumed.
I wonder if he was better for it from that morn onward.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
