NOTE: Dancing is my passion, my favorite ballet for this time of year is The Nutcracker, so I could not help writing this.

"There it is!" Owen yelled. “Don’t let it runaway. Tosh, Ianto, you try to block its path! Gwen, go to the other end of the alley"ordered Jack. The alien was very ugly, it looked like a huge gray rat, mangy, with a long pink tail. The alien was running fast towards where Tosh and Ianto were waiting to lock it, the three others ran after it, finally cornered it and shot it, but before it died, the creature hited Ianto with its tail, ripped his pants and scraped his leg. "Ouch, shit" Ianto stepped across the alley. Now that the creature was dead, the others came to see what had happened to Ianto. Owen saw his leg, "It's just a scratch". Jack was worried, "Are you okay??" Ianto looked at him "I feel a little dizzy" and he fall unconscious in Jack’ arms.
"Yan, Yan, wake up!" Ianto opened his eyes "Doctor???" Yes, it was the Doctor, but he didn’t have the answer he wanted. "Oh come on, Yan, you no longer remember your uncle Drosselmeyer???” Ianto heard a female laughter behind him, "That's what you wanted, I still do not have married you” it was Rose who spoke. "Your Aunt Rose is very stubborn. Come on, you have to see the gift I brought to you." Rose looked at the two of them "You should not indulge both my nephews. Andy, come here." Ianto felt very confused and thought "Oh My God, I must be dreaming or very drunk." Andy was Andy, but appeared to be sixteen. "What did you bring us, Uncle Drosselmeyer??" Rose rolled up his eyes and sighed "I surrender." The uncle was very pleased "You’ll see, my kids."
Ianto was sitting on the sofa where he had been lying down. He looked at the room, it has a fireplace, a Christmas tree, and then he looked himself at a large mirror that was in the room, he realized that he also seemed to be sixteen "This can not be true."
Uncle Drosselmeyer gave them two boxes, one with gold paper with a green ribbon for Andy and the other with red paper and a blue ribbon to Ianto "Take, kids." Andy unwrapped the gift, they were toy soldiers "Oh, it's wonderful! Thanks, uncle" Rose was angry "Andy, you had to wait until tomorrow. We have not even eaten." The uncle laughed, "Let him, Rose, go, Yan, open yours." Ianto looked at the box he had in his hands, slowly unwrapped it and took a Nutcracker, with the most beautiful blue eyes he had ever seen "Jack". The uncle asked "Is that the name you're going to put on him??? He is an Army Captain" Ianto smiled and spoke for the first time "Yes. Thanks, I really like him." Andy looked at the nutcracker and thought it would be a great leader for his army "Yan, lend me the Captain to lead my army" Ianto did not want "No, he's mine." Andy tried to snatch the Nutcracker and it strucked the ground, where he collapsed. Ianto felt his eyes filled with tears, "What did you do???" Rose scolded Andy but the uncle told Ianto "Do not worry, Yan, I'll fix it."
With a device that the uncle took out of his pocket, he fixed the Nutcracker "You have to take care of it until it sticks." Ianto took him in his arms "I will, thank you." "Dinnertime" said Rose.
Night later, Ianto felt very strange, but with the Nutcracker lie down beside him on the bed, he did not care anything, he was not alone.
He heard the clock strike midnight and fell asleep. Suddenly, a noise woke up him, he looked at his side and saw that the Nutcracker was not there. He ran into the living room and was surprised to see the Nutcracker in command of Andy’s soldiers. They were fighting with mice, he saw the Captain with his sword fighting with that appeared to be the King of the mice, because it had a crown. Ianto saw that the mouse had the Nutcracker against the wall, then he took off his slipper and threw it to the mouse king and killed him.
The other mice runaway. The Nutcracker made a bow "Thank you, Yan." Ianto knelt on the ground "Gladly." In it, a fairy appeared "Martha?" Ianto thought. "Hi, I'm the Sugar Plum Fairy. You have been very brave to kill the king of the mice, so we are going to have a party in your honor. The Nutcracker will be your escort tonight" and so saying, the fairy made a pirouette with his wand and Ianto shrugged to be the size of the Nutcracker. He no longer was in pajamas, he was wearing a white suit with a fur hat.
The fairy talked to the Nutcracker "Your Majesty, I thought that with the death of the king of the mice the spell that he put on you go away." “I thought the same" he said sadly. Ianto felt curiously "What happened???”. The Nutcracker told him "I’m Prince Jack of the Land of Sweets in Confiturembourg. The Mouse King casted a spell on me and I became a Nutcracker. The king has died and I'm still a nutcracker." The fairy looked at them both and smiled mischievously, "There is another way to break a spell, with a kiss of love." The Nutcracker looked at Ianto, who blushed violently. But Ianto approached him and gave him a kiss on the timber mouth. Moments later he felt warm lips that was kissing him and strong arms squeezed him tightly. "Ehemph" said the fairy. They separated and Ianto became flushed, the Nutcracker had been transformed into a handsome prince, looking at him with love. Ianto melted completely at that time. The fairy said "Party at Confiturembourg" and with a pirouette of his wand, they all disappeared.
Ianto found himself in a place full of candy, the way in which they were walking was mint, flowers were lollypops, there were cotton candy Christmas trees decorated with M&M and the stones were of nougat. The castle was of ginger, all decorated in candy and jelly beans. Prince Jack introduced Ianto to his friends. Ianto was amazed, Gwen and Rhys were the Danish Marzipan Sheperdess, Owen was the Russian Candy Cane, Tosh as the Chinese Tea, Kathy Swanson as the Arabbian Coffe and Mickey was the Spanish Hot Chocolate. All of them danced the Prince and Ianto, who was very happy. Then the marshmallows orchestra played a waltz, Jack invited Ianto to dance. The rest of the guests left them alone. Ianto was happy, he began to turn and turn and turn...
"Yan, Yan, please wake up" Ianto heard Jack's voice and opened his eyes "My prince." But he heard Owen’s voice in the background "Oh no, please no unnecessary demonstrations of affection." Ianto realized he was lying on the autopsy room. "What happened to me?" Ianto sat and Jack hugged him "The alien's tail was poison and caused you an allergic reaction, Owen gave you an antidote, but you do not wake up and we were very concerned." Tosh spoke "However, you seemed very happy." Gwen added, "You had a big smile." Ianto raised an eyebrow "I had the strangest dream ever." Tosh smiled "I guess Jack was in it, your prince." Everyone laughed. Ianto told them "I dreamed of The Nutcracker." Ianto told them his dream. The girls sighed, Owen seemed he would be sick at any time and Jack was smiling from ear to ear. Tosh said "I think we should make that dream a reality. We're going to have a wonderful celebration of Christmas this year." Gwen nodded "Yes, with all our friends." Owen had to agree this time “An excellent idea”. Jack and Ianto looked at each other. Jack said "I hope that everyone can come, it will be the best party we've held." Ianto felt very happy "Especially because we will be united as the family we are." And now, we have to let them planning every detail of a wonderful Christmas.
“Tu que esta noche
No puedes dejar de recordar
Quiero que sepas
En nuestra mesa
Para ti tengo un lugar...
Por eso y muchas cosas más
Ven a mi casa esta Navidad”
