Captain Jack and the Snack Attack by Addison Albright

When Gordie spots the perfect Christmas gift for his sister at a charity silent auction, he’s disappointed to be thwarted by a better-funded bidder who also has his eye on the signed and framed movie poster featuring Captain Jack Sparrow. When he and Kenton meet again, Gordie isn’t going to let a little disappointment get between him and a potential date. Still, Gordie wants to erase the unfortunate image of his first impression and can’t decide on the proper etiquette for a first date that is mere days before Christmas. To gift, or not to gift?

When their first date is derailed by Captain Jack, Kenton’s wayward kitten, the guys make the best of a silly situation. They overcome a serious case of the munchies, an untimely interruption from an ornery ball of fur, and uncover a shared sense of humor, and a desire for more.

An early edition of this story was distributed in booklet form at GRL2017.

The Year of the Monkey by Amy Tasukada

The last thing Aoi wants to do for New Year’s is spend it with his boyfriend’s parents. Sure he and Sato have dated for three years, but Sato’s parents were far from thrilled when their son came out.  Since then Sato refused to visit unless Aoi was welcomed too.

When a fancy New Year’s invitation gets delivered addressed to both of them, Aoi knows he can’t back out of spending the holiday with Sato’s family.  

Can Aoi warm Sato’s parents’ hearts by making traditional mochi or will they end up in an even stickier situation?

A Christmas Party to Remember by Nicky Spencer

Last Christmas, Cory and Wes made a connection that left them both thanking Santa. But when Cory doesn’t show up for their first date, Wes swears he won’t make that mistake again. This year, can Santa’s magic find a way to bring them back together?

Let’s Not Go Crazy by Stephen Hoppa

The holidays are stressful enough without Ethan’s boyfriend Nate trying to kill him with Christmas cheer. But Nate’s found a whole new way to torture Ethan when he reveals that he wants kids. Will their conflicting desires tear their relationship apart, or will they find a way to ring in the new year stronger than ever?

The Christmas Day Date by Nell Iris

Two men. Changed Christmas plans. A gazillion cookies.

Lenny Painter’s idea of the perfect Christmas is sleeping the holiday away. He’s got nowhere to be, and the only item on his Santa wish list is to catch a glimpse of his cute neighbor, JJ.

Julius Jones’s carefully organized Christmas is canceled at the last minute. In a fit of rage, he rids his apartment of all holiday cheer, including the rainbow-decorated tree.

But Lenny rescues the beautiful tree from a sad demise and ends up spending the afternoon with JJ. When JJ asks Lenny to celebrate Christmas Day with him, Lenny accepts.

But it isn’t a date. Or is it?
