Hello, Everyone! Merry Christmas! The next chapter will probably be posted tomorrow. I meant to post this yesterday. Hehe. About that. Life got busy!

Anyway, this fic is dedicated to everyone who has reviewed, subscribed, PMed or befriended me here on FFNet. Without you, I would be nothing. Thank you all!

On to the Disclaimer. Do I really need to restate this? ::Looks at lawyer:: Right. I guess I do.

I own nothing except the plot. The characters and any likeness to them belong to Nintendo. I do not make any money off this fic; merely the enjoyment of knowing I made my readers happy.

I realize this chapter is incredibly short; I promise there will be more next time!

"Looks like we're snowed in, Kid," said Ike to the gorgeous angel beside him.

"Yeah," Sighed the angel, "Looks like it".

T'was the night before Christmas, and the Smash Mansion had one of the most devastating blizzards ever to hit the area. Snow was coming down between three to five inches per hour, and the Mansion was completely cut off from the outside world. The members of the Smash community had free reign of the Mansion, provided they did not go outside in such terrible weather. Most of the Smashers were downstairs in the common room; A few had retired to their bedrooms, to await the arrival of Saint Nicholas and presents the following morning. Ike, as well as his roommate, Pit, had decided to go to bed earlier than most, for Pit was certainly a morning person, and did not stay up late. Ike, on the other hand, was smitten with the angel, and thus followed him to their room.

It had taken Ike some time to grow accustomed to the feelings he had for Pit. He had spoken to Zelda often about his growing affection for the young being of light.

"Are you sure?" He murmured, not quite believing the Queen of Hyrule.

Zelda sighed with exasperation.

"Ike. It is perfectly ok and quite normal to like someone. Here, or even in the realm of Palutena, it does not matter what gender they are. As long as they are of age to consent, and able to give said consent, it's absolutely fine. No one here has a problem with it. Hell, just look at Lucas and Ness!" She said with force.

Ike thought for a moment. He knew that the two boys were close, but he hadn't thought…

"Zelda?" He asked, looking for an answer.

And of course, the brilliant young woman had the answer to the question.

"Yes, Ike, they're dating. Shall I make a flow chart of all the couples within the Smash Manor?"

"…" Ike was stunned. She had guessed his next question!

For now, Ike was content to keep his feelings to himself. Besides, he had quite the surprise planned for his angel on Christmas day.

Ike had brought with him a charmed locket from the realm of Crimea; It was in the shape of a heart. It was made from silver, and coated with runes. There were small red lines running up and down the length of the locket, so that it was stripped.

Ike planned to give the locket to Pit upon Christmas morning, and let fate play out from there.

"Ike…" called Pit. Ike had been so deep in thought he had forgotten his surroundings, as well as the present. At that current moment, Ike was sitting upon the corner of his bed, and Pit was crouching upon his knees between Ike's legs, staring up at the cerulean-haired mercenary.

Ike started a bit, shocked at the proximity of his crush.

"Yes, Pit?" He asked, confused as to Pit's position.

The fair-haired angel laughed.

"You were so spaced out, I thought you were past Lylat!" Pit joked, bringing his friend back to reality.

Ike chuckled, and responded.

"No, my dear friend. Just thinking about tomorrow." With this, the mercenary grinned, anticipating his love's reaction.

"Oh? What about tomorrow?" Asked the angel, tilting his head to the left adorably.

Ike wanted nothing more than to kiss Pit till the morning came, but instead, took a deep breath, and stared at the chestnut haired youth.

"You'll see," Said Ike mysteriously. "You'll see."
