Summary: Post CoE. Christmas is a lonely time of year for Jack.
A/N: Title translates to ‘Grant them rest’ and the word cwtch is Welsh for hug. Also, I think I must be the only person on the planet that can make a Christmas fic into angst fest 2009 (or 2010 as it is now). I hope everyone’s Christmas was better than Jack’s. Also thank you to galaxysong for coming up with random names for things at stupid o’clock in the morning and pinkfairy727 who struggled through her tears to beta this for me.
Maybe they mean they are exhausted with their own company."
