I really really really wanted to write a cheesy romantic Hallmark Christmas AU! You know, where Spencer is having the worst Christmas Eve ever
, and he has to deal with shit at work and seeing his ex (Patrick) at the holiday party and his best friend, Frank, who is SO ANNOYING even though he loves the little shit - and for the purposes of ANGELS, Ryan is dead and Jon Walker is MAGIC, because this is HALLMARK - and Brendon has a crush on him, only Spencer is totally not interested, Brendon drives him even more crazy than Frank. And Brendon's all, "What are you doing for Christmas?" because, see, Brendon's got no family, or at least none that want to see him, and Spencer just wants Brendon to leave him alone, so he's all mean to him - he doesn't know about Brendon's sad life, because Brendon's so HAPPY all the time - and Spencer has to do last minute shopping and he's all HARRIED and he doesn't HATE Christmas, but he really could deal without all the bustle this year. And ANYWAY, Jon Walker is the new coffee dude at Spencer's favorite coffee place, and he's all MYSTERIOUSLY AMUSED by Spencer and TOO AFFABLE and he knows Spencer's order before he gives it to him, and then, I don't know, Spencer runs into Brendon outside the coffee shop and he's SUPER MEAN to him for some reason and Brendon's all "...?" and TEARY EYED and he doesn't know what he ever did to Spencer to make him hate him so much, and Spencer's all sigh
, whatever, "I'm sorry
," and Brendon's all sad smile
and, "It's okay," and he walks off and Spencer's like, "Shit, I suck," and the next day, Christmas Morn, he feels even WORSE about Brendon, just thinking about his face, so he looks up his employee crap at work and finds out where he lives and he goes over and Brendon's all ALONE, but he's all buck up, camper
and he LIES THROUGH HIS TEETH and Spencer doesn't realize until later that night that he's basically made Brendon's holiday HORRIBLE, and he's UPSET and he finds himself outside of the coffee shop and Jon Walker's all, "Hey," with a cigarette and a cup of coffee, mysteriously THERE, and Spencer finds himself spilling out the whole story and how he feels sucky and his family's mad at him and everything's just WRONG and Jon Walker's like, "You could have a do-over," and Spencer's all, "...?" and Jon's like, "A Christmas do-over man, everybody gets one, haven't you ever watched the Hallmark channel?" and then he touches Spencer in the middle of the forehead and everything goes black, and Spencer wakes up in his bed on Christmas Eve morning and he feels like there's something OFF, and he gets deja vu all morning, and then he sees Brendon and it HITS HIM and he's like HOLY SHIT JON WALKER. AND STUFF GETS FIXED.
And then at the very end Jon Walker's in the coffee shop by himself, cleaning up, and he's all, "So are you happy now?" and Ryan MATERIALIZES because HE'S A GHOST AND JON WALKER'S HIS BEST ANGEL PAL, and Ryan's all deadpanned, "Of course," and everything is awesome again. AND THUS JON WALKER SAVES CHRISTMAS.
THIS IS ALL I ACTUALLY WROTE BEFORE GIVING UP:( It isn’t that Spencer doesn’t like Christmas. )
