Fic: ‘Tis the Season: All about the children.  
Title: ‘Tis the Season: All about the children.
Fandom: Hogfather (movie)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During events in Hogfather.
Summary: It’s all about the ears.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I don’t think it’s about the children for Albert, somehow.

“No.”

THINK OF THE CHLDREN. THINK HOW DISAPPOINTED THEY SHALL BE.

“And they won’t be disappointed when a skeleton arrives as the Hogfather?” He reaches behind an ear. “Master,” he adds as an afterthought.

THEY WILL NOT SEE ME.

Exactly, master. The little buggers won’t see me.”

If Death could sigh, he would. He’d never heard of other people having this trouble with people who lived with them. Of course, he was there at The End, when people had other matters on their minds. Like silverware. Being robbed. Pins.

He was still wondering about that last.

IT’S THE SPIRIT OF THE THING, Death announces. THINK OF THEIR LITTLE FACES WHEN THEY OPEN THEIR PRESENTS.

Albert rolls tobacco into a thin paper.

YOU CAN HAVE SHERRY.

“Sherry, master?” Albert puts the cigarette in his mouth and fiddles a match alight.

ALL THE SHERRY YOU CAN DRINK. Death pauses. YOU’LL ALSO BE OUTSIDE TIME.

“Why didn’t you say so before, master?” Albert grins. “Gimme those ears here!”

So -that's- how Albert was convinced to be an elf.

I wonder if the Campaign for Equal Heights people might poke their noses into this!
