Do You Believe in Santa?

What do your OCs think about Santa? I can still see 'Etta believing, but your OCs?

Monty doesn't believe in Christmas, let alone Santa, and would generally prefer to organise things such that she spends the Yule season in a Muslim, Hindu or other country which does not celebrate it. While she doesn't have anything against religion per-se, she does consider the whole affair to be an epic waste of time and unwarranted distraction which she wants no part in.

Jethro on the other hand is from an Anglican tradition and does still retain a bit of Christmas spirit, so tries to weave at least a little magic for his girl; even if all that involves is finding an excuse to break for a day or two together. Sometimes he's successful, sometimes he isn't: at the end of Voodoo's Marisa 17 Jethro managed to scrounge a few chalet days, but in my last set of chapters the Blackers spent Christmas airborne. Usually Monty will, in her own grudging way, quietly cave in and enjoy the moment: either letting her partner have the few days sans-work or taking the time to dress up and join him for a Yuletide drink at the aeroplane's business class bar.


C.Raych is probably a bit old for Santa Claus, but if she talked to someone whom believed in him first would probably wind up believing as well... at least until Christmas came around and no jolly fat man came down the SWA chimney to leave treats in her stocking. Lets face it: that isn't a game her handler is going to play. *Notes it down for potential story fodder*.

Marisa: Short answer; no, she wouldn't believe in Babbo Natale.

Fiercely atheistic, Marisa holds animosity toward any holiday with religious basis. While Santa Claus is not exactly a character out of the Christian testaments he is representative of the Christmas holiday in general. As Alfisti alluded to above, she worked over her first Christmas season...but if she had been back at the dorm with her cyborg sisters she'd probably go to great efforts to be a massive pain in the ass.

Elio tries to explain to her that human beings have always held celebrations close to the Winter Solstice, that it's okay to observe the holiday in the Pagan sense without going out of her way to piss everyone else off.

Eventually she'll just get tired of arguing about it and give in...with the stipulation that she is absolutely not going soft on religion.

Kristal and Verotrois don't hold any religious beliefs, and they're a bit old for Santa, but they enjoy the holiday - Vee, especially, is up for any excuse to party. They'd both enjoy decorating the dorm, and buying and wrapping gifts, and sampling holiday goodies, and if Santa showed up with a bag, they'd squeal with excitement for the sake of the little ones and never notice if the beard slipped a bit to reveal a more familiar face.

And, depending on whose face that slip revealed, Vee might want to sit in Santa's lap and tell him what she wanted for Christmas.

Allison likewise is quite old for Santa, and isn't what one might consider religious; in fact, religious belief is not something I have addressed with her. However, she does celebrate Christmas, and though I have not expounded upon it, she does go with Brian to Northern Ireland and the U.K. every year (when possible) to spend the Christmas and New Year holidays with the McDonnell Clan and Brian's father, Barry. Assuming work doesn't get in the way, this tends to be an annual tradition.

As for Brian, he was raised in a household with a fairly strong Catholic tradition, and while not the churchgoing sort, he does celebrate Christmas as a means of getting together with family he doesn't often get to see.

Emilie for herself isn't christian nor even baptized (even if she sometimes appears like), so does not believe in the birth of jesus.
But she enjoys christmas itself, loves to be at Etienne's side, gifting him little, paper-wrapped presents.
I see them sitting on his couch, decorating a tree with glas bubbles, candles, lametta and such, sitting arm in arm on the couch in the candlelight.
When she's around even Priscilla receives presents from Emilie and Etienne (for always taking care of Emilie for example) and stays with her best friends Etienne and Emilie.

Etienne on the other side celebrates christmas for his daugther but also likes to infect others with his happiness. I can see him wearing a red christmas hat in the office, greeting everybody with a heartily "Merry Christmas".

As Michele's cyborg's roommate, it is guaranteed that C.Raych will get a stuffed stocking on the chimney. Yes Indeed



As a (half-)French Catholic on her biological father's side, Kara is quite familiar with Christmas, even if she has acknowledged for some time that Santa Claus is not real (though she does wonder who really conquered the Martians), she normally attended Christmas Mass with her biological family. As an Italian Catholic, Michele does observe the Holy Feast Days and as Christmas is a solemnity, he regularly made Christmas Mass at Monza Cathedral or St. Peter's.

Now that he is paired with Kara, they have formed a new tradition of celebrating Christmas in Tokyo.

John's not really religious, but Christmas is one of the few times of year he'd make an exception on that - he's big on singing Christmas carols.

He's also big on humoring children, and probably wouldn't have any compunctions on playing Santa, if it meant he could put a smile on a child's face.

Tsuki would be my only OC that believes in Santa (she's 11 and doesn't get exposed to the outside world much after all) but figures she wouldn't get any presents becuase she isn't 'normal'. Her handler and the rest of the CSTG will just take any opportunity for a holiday or celebration.

Victoria, isn't religious in the slightest. "If you can't provide sufficent evidence or theories to support your beliefs, then I haven't the slightest inclination to think you have anthing less than an imaginary frined and are a loony." Her handler, Andromeda, is much the same just without giving people a hard time about their faith. She was raised in a Catholic family though, and so celebrates Christmas as a tradition. Victoria celebrates it because she's a sixth generation Australian (her parent moved to Italy when she little), and as an Aussie, will take any and all excuses to have a holiday (even though she enjoys her work to the point of probably being a psychopath, she regocnises the need for a break now and then).

Barry and Mercedes don't believe in Santa, but are more than happy to pretend to be Santa for any of the other girls who do believe, even if it is just pretending to be reindeer on the roof and leaving 'evidence' of his arrival such as gifts and half eaten bickies (neither can exactly dress up as Santa since one is a girl and the other is Afican-British).

The Panxer XII celebrate Christmas and other winter solstice hlidays only as a formality.

Although certainly not a devout one, Anton is a practising Christian and thus observes the German tradition of Weihnachten (look it up). Before his arrival at the SWA; should he not be assigned an investigation during the time he enjoyed dressing as Saint Nicholas (Anton: Not Noel Baba) and passing out gifts at a selected orphanage or hospital.

Within the SWA ranks he delighted in donning his Saint Nicholas outfit and passing out gifts to the girls as well as bags of chocolate gold coins.

----------

Crystal herself never was much the holiday type preferring more to stay in, read comic books, and eat ice cream. It wasn't until Anton explained the tradition of Servant Ruprecht that Crystal began to accompany Anton, although she took a few liberties with the tradition.



Also Anton firmly scolded Crystal after he caught her teaching the rest of the girls the game of "Under Over" using dice with their gold chocolate coins as the wagers.

----------

Alpha himself never truly celebrated Christmas with his parents as festivities usually included the absence of one parent and included a nice dinner with some activity afterwards without understanding the origins of the day. As her Romani traditions dictate, Nyromi didn't exactly celebrate Christmas and thus only knew that it involved gifts and cake somehow. So on their first December together, Nyromi made it a mission (with Al at the hip) to find out what it was all about and thus began to ask around the Foundation compound.

In the end they decided that a fat burglar dressed in red used the day of the birth of Christ to break into peoples houses while they were at the Christmas Mass so that he could eat all their sweets, and then left a few items as pittance for the things he used. He would then leave their homes exposed to other burglars as considering the rise of thefts around the holiday season it certainly must've been the case.

Together they swore to stop the fat burglar dressed in red from leaving innocent people exposed at the influence of a barrel if necessary when the next holiday season came. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your POV) that next holiday season never came for them.

Later Don Marcello Demetri would take the boy on his lap and explain Christmas to him while attempting to hold in his laughter at Alpha's understanding of Christmas.

-----------

Before moving to Switzerland, Alpha simply passed the holiday by alone before Marble Hill Molly took it upon herself to teach Alpha the meaning of the Christmas Spirit (or in her case 'spirits'). In Switzerland he would spend the holidays with the Enzo's enjoying Laurette's home cooking and Endo's exaggerated stories of Father Christmas saving France, Italy, or both.

At the SWA however he learned to spend it with the rest of the guys and gals at the Agency before getting closer to Liesel. I imagine that while Altheus is reacquainting himself with that Red Cross nurse he is so fond of, Alpha and Liesel are making up traditions as they go along.

Of course Enzo believes in Santa-she's well-trained,thorough, and dedicated to doing good work.
(Not what the prompt intended but I couldn't resist.  Laughing)

As for the fat man, Enzo enjoys the holiday while ignoring the religious part and has passed the like on to Santa.

You know, I could somehow see that name being a cause for some consternation in the cyborg dorms, particularly amongst the younger/newer/more gullible (or all of the above) girls.  Wink

Bad Santa vs cyborg Santa and Marisa: c!Santa gets freaked out by trailer -> tells Marisa that b!Santa is the reason that Elio won't give Marisa a sword -> double team take down of b!Santa.

The chapter would probably have to be non-canon for both of us and I would have to watch the movie, but this is in the future anyway after I get some chapters out so I have time.

Marisa counts magically flying reindeer-drawn carriages as boats if they have her sword in them right? Puzzled Very Happy

Jim and Jamiebel don't necessarily believe in Santa anymore, but they now do tell a tale of the legendary Norseman every now and then, on the week the 25th is on. For Jim, it's kind of a lament for him that he doesn't believe in the old guy.

(Jim, aside: Maybe I'm getting old for this kind of stuff.
Jamiebel, also aside: You're not that old, Jim, c'mon!)

Frederic - He also celebrates the 25th, and often takes this opportunity to give his cyborgs and a couple of his drinking buddies (Alpha, I'm looking at you) and some of their loved ones for a night out. He doesn't quite believe in Noel Baba, but he also believes in letting the young ones dream, so he feigns that he believes in Noel.
