Author's notes: This was inspired by a prompt [personal profile] donutsweeper had in her Yuletide letter, which I saw and have pondered on and off since then until I decided to write it. My Nero Wolfe is a bit rusty, so I hope everyone sounds like themselves. I've especially never tried to write from Wolfe's point of view before. My thesaurus got a good work out. :-D
