I do love the way you bring out the different characters, and their search into their crewmates with the present giving, perfect idea! I love Phlox's joke,T'Pol's gag gifts, and especially Hoshi's and Malcolm's gift exchange. Very sweet!

AWWW! That was so sweet! I loved how you paired everyone up and how they fulfilled their respective assignments. Phlox's joke on Trip was priceless as was how Phlox filled his gift requirement for T'Pol. Of course, it was also great to see the subtle TnT thing going on as was how T'Pol connected with Travis. And then Malcolm and Hoshi was just too cute with how they were both thinking along the same lines. Nicely done!

Poor Trip! I can really imagine Phlox asking him for tarantulas. I hate to imagine what he's going to use them for.
I liked your description of T'Pol opening her present. She just seemed so sweet in that scene, and Phlox's gift was both practical and pretty. It seems like something she would really appreciate.
But the Malcolm and Hoshi moments were the best!

I really liked the fact that the person who you think will come up with the best present (Archer) doesn't and the one who you think will not come up with such a good one (T'Pol to Travis) gave him a great gift.
I liked the Christmas spirit and the fun, lighthearted way this story was written. Nice job.

That was lovely. Malcolm and Hoshi were right on the money. We can see their budding romance on the horizon.
I didn't realize that Phlox had such a wicked sense of humor. What a mean thing to do to Trip. However the gift for T'Pol was very sweet and thoughtful.
A very charming holiday story for our Christmas eve!

Thank you, korikat! I thoroughly enjoyed that. Funny and sweet at the same time, which is sometimes difficult to do.
I do feel for poor Trip, both for what he wound up getting the doctor, and also for what he got in return from the captain who thought he was getting Trip something unique. And the Malcolm and Hoshi exchange was very sweet and made me smile.
I really liked how you set up the beginning, giving glimpses of each person's reaction as they found out who their gift recipient was, and the sense of panic each had! Well, except for T'Pol, who went about trying to find out what Travis wanted in a logical manner, and then Travis thought he wasn't performing his job well enough. And the suggestion of a science report on the medical benefits of logic -- LOL! I truly enjoyed the ensemble interaction.
Thank you again!
