'my coat and sweater came around the holidays some years ago. Sparrow had been gone for a few weeks and when he returned…'
'it's common for Sparrow to bring me gifts from his long travels. sometimes it's medicine. other times it 's random trinkets and stolen watches. this was the first letter, however.'
'well, there's a first for everything, i suppose.'
'a gift?? no one had ever sent me a christmas gift before. naturally i was curious to what kind of gift the Nightmare King would send.'
'it looked freshly tailored. like new hems had been put into place.'
'i'm not sure how one goes about turning literal shadows into knit-able thread, but i wasn't complaining. it was badass.'
'and i was happy.'
'admittedly, it took me a moment to realise…'
'…this was no ordinary gift. it was the Nightmare King's way of saying that he… accepted me as his equal.
'and that was… a huge deal to me. because never before had someone accepted me as an equal. i was Jack Frost the weather phenom. Jack Frost the wintery snowjob. Jack Frost the seasonal annoyance. but now—now—i was a king. the King Frost.’
