Hey Ste, I notice you've lost your comments after the big crash so I'll just say that this was a very good short and great twist on the Santa story.


Check out my scripts...if you want to, no pressure.

You can find my scripts here

Cheers Alffy, yeah the crash will be talked about in history class in years to come. The dark summer of 2008 when simply scripts went down haha.

Hey Ste,

I've been keeping my eye out for you on the boards these past couple weeks.  (Not stalking, though.  Just keeping an eye out.)  I wasn't sure if you were still active or not.

Anyway, I figured since it's Easter, I'd check out your Christmas story.  (I'm a rebel like that.)  (Plus, it's the only story in your sig that I see.)

Anyway, it's a pretty cool take on Santy Clause.  A cynical take, but enjoyable nonetheless.  It'd be really funny to see this one acted out and the image of your renegade St. Nick.

I'm not too sure about the setting in the last scene.  It reads like Santa lives in a hut in the middle of nowhere.  Seems like your Santa would actually be the pimp of a candy cane-themed brothel or something.  (Or maybe I just really want to see a really slutty image of Mrs. Clause.)  I could be looking too deep into it though.

Anyway, it's good seeing you again.  Let me know if you got any other stuff posted you want me to take a look at.  (I'm looking for that link where everybody posts what their stories are, but can never find it.)

What the hell, Ste?  One minute the only thing in your sig is 'Merry Fuckin' Christmas' and no sooner do I post it, you got three other stories up there!

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention, too, the title for this one grabbed my attention because when I was younger, I invaded my dad's porn collection, and one of the titles was Merry Fuckin' Christmas.  It had some pretty awesome scenes, that's why I remembered it so well.  Thank you for the nostalgia.  :-)

Hi Mark

What a weird world it is - just as I've changed my sig! I only changed it about half an hour ago haha. Still old scripts mind but feel free to have a read if you haven't already.

With this script I did want to create a more cynical, badass santa. He doesn't like his job, but somebody's got to do it. He's got a good heart deep down though and takes pity on the kid.

Good idea about the end. I kept Santa's home traditional but I like your idea of him having a pimped out mansion somewhere. Might look at that if I ever do a rewrite of this.

Lol Stephen Stephen Stephen this has to be the craziest story Ive read on this site yet.
Now the question is ...is this a good or bad thing?

It is neither for me because some of the elements you used I liked a lot and others not so much. But overall out of 1-10  Ill give this read a solid 7.

To me I felt like the story should've ended with Santa spraying the dad but thats me.
