merry christmas bill

Tony Abbott handed Bill Shorten a present.

“Here, from one MP that the country didn’t want to be PM to another,” he said.

Bill awkwardly accepted.

“…thanks…” he said through a forced smile. “What is it?”

“A pair of budgie smugglers so we can go swimming together.”

Bill instantly dropped the present as if it was on fire.

“Get out. Just leave.”


MERRY CHRISTMAS! @billdip-week final day! Can’t wait for next Time! 

This little snow angel idea was courtesy of @janeappreciator, so BLAME HIM! (Just kidding, I had too much fun with this.)

Bonus from an AU I’ve had in my head for a while (should have some art forthcoming soonish):

I checked out a copy of Stephen King’s book Pet Sematary from my local library, and found this note on the inside front cover: 


I love it when you’re reading a Stephen King novel — you sleep closer to me at night.

So — a present for both of us.

Merry Christmas


Isn’t that the cutest thing ever? I wish Bill had given a last name, because I would love to have some way to reach out to him / his family and see if they realized this note was inside the book when they donated it. If the note makes me smile this much — me, a stranger not even born yet in 1983 — I can’t imagine how much it would mean for its original writer or recipient to see it now after all those years.
