A Christmas In the Castle
Summary: It isn't their first christmas together. It is the first to feature the Muppets, though and apparently that makes all the difference.
A/N: What it says on the tin really, inspired by and dedicated to Sanyu Darkstarr who is unusually patient for an RP partner (I haven't posted in like... months). Incredibly short chapters because... my brain doesn't work and I don't have any energy. This is me in winter everyone. Sorry.
Warnings: Mild language.
Spoilers: everything up to, but not including, season 3 and the previous Owen one-shots.

"What is that?" David Xanatos asked when it became apparent - after several long minutes of staring - that Owen was not going to save him the indignity of asking. Beside him the blond man shrugged.
"It appears to be a bird sir."
"A bird," Xanatos repeated unnecessarily. Owen nodded.
"In a small potted tree," the blond continued, pushing his glasses up his nose with a knuckle. Xanatos nodded as though this made perfect sense and continued past the poultry/Pyrus Communis combo sitting in the middle of the great hall.
"As I was saying, we need to sell our shares in Soylent Corp. before the news of the main ingredient in their newest affordable snack hits the media."
"Of course, sir."
A/N: Pyrus Communis= Dwarf Pear Tree
