I want to give Shelley some sensible outerwear. And kiss her.

Is scantily-clad Shelly waiting for me with that mistletoe?! I'd like to think so...

May the unruly mob reading our favorite comic become a bigger unrulier mob! Merry Christmas!

I'm choosing to believe that this image is a snapshot from Shelley's holiday office party at the Ministry of History.

Shelley looks more and more demented every time I see her. I predict a rat fur coat and a street corner banjo gig in her future. Also: incoherent shoutings at passers-by.

Though, having watched her grow and mature over the years I suspect this would come as a surprise to no one :Phyp

Poor Shelley, the Christmas party seemed so boring when she got the invitation from the Ministry, but, then, she felt it her responsibility to participate. A little too much wine to warm up and get into the Christmas spirit while talking to her dear Ames on the mobile, and suddenly she found herself in excellent mood at the Ministry. Very soon she will have to 'powder her nose' and, there in front of the mirror she will have a rather unpleasant revelation...
