Author's notes: Happy holidays, katmarajade! I was thrilled to write for you. I hope you don't mind that I took some liberties with your pairings; the bunny bit and I knew it had to be Zach and Lavender. Thank you to the smutty_claus mods for running this fest every year- it's a staple of my holidays and it just wouldn't be Christmas without it! Thank you also to K for cheerleading and beta-ing and helping me brainstorm when the story was being stubborn (much like our lovely pair).
