Leviathan meets the Incredible Hulk

I win!

So, about five years ago, I was out in my car with my wife at about midnight on Christmas Eve, and I heard the most amazing version, simple and heartfelt, with an amazingly happy, bluesy guitar sound, of Jose Feliciano's Feliz Navidad.

I loved it! I adored it! As soon as I got home, I called the Radio Station, and asked who was performing it. The midnight DJ dug in some paperwork, and said it was probably Big Head Todd and the Monsters.

I've every now and again for the last five years searched the Internet for that track, ever in vain.

Until tonight! About a half-hour ago, I found this:

Fic Pimpage!

The very first truly great R/Hr fic I ever read online was a wonderful series of stories on Checkmated called "Turn and Face The Strange."

(The second was Alloy's "Midnight Confessions.")

The Author, Amidala69, has begun bringing that multiparter to SU. You can reader here:

And, by the way... If you like my Grangers in "Unbreakable Bond," they owe an awful lot to the Grangers Amidala69 will introduce you to -- and a lot to Alloy's Grangers, too.
