Let’s go back to the beginning of TBFF and see what’s going on! There’s just a short bit for each story with a few revelations that I never showed. (I’m too lazy to be catering to my stories right now, but these will serve as prompts for the future.)
..300 posts, 77 followers and 3 days ‘til Christmas (and Courage’s 1st birthday)! Thank you all for supporting Courage!

The first snow was falling, and Ryou was enjoying it all too much.
“Wow! This is much different to how it’s shown in cartoons!” he exclaimed, acting like a little kid experiencing their first snow – well, he wasn’t a little kid but he was experiencing his first snow.
The duo was supposedly on vacation, but in actuality they were scouting more help. (Just ‘cos you can never have enough help when you’re trying to defeat the worst devil in history.) Said chase for help had led them on a road trip to Mt Eversnow.
Unfortunately, the help they were enlisting was a devil too – Azazel the ice devil.
“So why are we here?” Kelly looked around the huge warehouse, his voice as flat as ever.
“Christmas shopping, of course!” Shizuka flashed some money in his face and ran ahead. “It’s not every day that my mother lets me go shopping, after all.”
As Shizuka ran amuck, asking Kelly for his opinion every now and then, the latter felt like he was missing out on the Christmas spirit. Maybe it was because he was still missing his father and being a sore loser about it.
Suddenly, a white downy feather on the ground caught his attention. He looked up.
It was a swan - his dad, he knew – sitting in the rafters, dozing away.
“Just a little to the right, mya!” Leo called out to Lucien. “Back a little!”
Now, why exactly is a fallen angel like me putting up Christmas lights? Lucien wondered as he obeyed the commands of the lion spirit. Being a human is lousy.
“Careful!” Leo’s voice warned, but it was too late.
The ladder Lucien was standing on toppled backwards, causing the two to crash into each other.
Joan poked her head out of the door and shook her head at the duo. Those guys were too reckless.
Christmas was something the world had retained after the Dates and Alkahest had appeared. At least there was something to look forward to, no matter what kind of person you were, and Hideaki was proving that right as he and Haruka went to the Kurokawa mansion.
“What’s that on your face?” Haruka pointed out lamely.
“Well then, what about your girly name?!” Hide lashed out, spoiling the happy mood for one second. Haruka never enjoyed the fact that his name was girly.
But before any serious fighting could break out, Dawn appeared in front of them and dragged them both inside.
