Been enjoying this the past few years so thought it was about time I contributed something. Hope you enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

Let it Snow - a Judge Dredd Christmas story

It was Christmas Eve and Dredd was patrolling Sector 40. The city was quiet aside from a few groups of late night revellers, some of whom Dredd had cuffed to holding posts for D&D. As Dredd was passing John McTiernan block, he glanced up to the roof and noticed a flurry of snow falling, localised only to the block. After checking with Weather Control that no snow was planned until the annual short burst the following day, Dredd parked his Lawmaster and made his way up to the roof. His tight boots made large footprints in the inch-deep covering. An illegal Weather Control disruptor was in the middle of the roof and Dredd was just about to blow it to smithereens with Hi-Ex when a juve walked out of the door behind him, stopping short when he saw the lawman.

“J-Judge Dredd!”

“Is this your doing, creep?”

“Y-Yes!”

“Explain yourself before I decide how much time you’ll be doing.”

The juve hesitated, but then a look of defiance replaced the fear on his face.

“I know it was a hard time for you guys when the ice aliens attacked, but I looked out over the city when it was covered in snow and thought it was beautiful. I wanted to see that again, just for one night. The bit we get tomorrow is nothing, it’s gone in seconds, you might as well not bother. This is a white Christmas.”

Dredd considered this. His city and people had been through hell more times than he could count, and he often felt ten times his age, despite the rejuves. Shouldn’t the citizens be allowed just some fleeting moments of happiness?

“I’m taking this machine, and giving you a caution, son. Consider it your Christmas present from Justice Department. Don’t let me catch you up here again.”

With that, Dredd picked up the machine and returned to his Lawmaster, leaving the astonished juve staring after him. Maybe he was getting soft in his old age.

THE END

It's both my birthday AND my day for the advent calendar! I signed up early to scoop everyone else who thought about doing one of these :D

A Visit From Judge Dredd
by Conrad of Space Spinner 2000
(based on A Visit From St. Nicholas by Clement Moore Clark)

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the cubes
Not a creature was stirring, not even a juve
The perps were all locked in their jail cells with care
And were well behaved ‘cause Judge Dredd was there
He’d come to Block-I on special assignment
With vision of jail break plans come into alignment
And Dredd in his helmet, and I with my loadout
Had just settled in for a long winter’s stakeout
When through the east wall there arose such a clatter
Dredd sprang into action to see what was the matter
Away to the view-screen I flew like a flash,
I pulled up security feed 801/
The moon on the breast of a refurbished bot
Gave a lustre of midday as two figures fought
For what to my wondering eyes did appear,
It was a powerful war-droid, knocking Dredd on his rear
But the little old judge so lively and quick
I knew in a moment he had the bot licked
More rapid than eagles his lawgiver came
And he aimed, and shouted, and called them by name:
“Now, Standard! Now, Hot Shot! Now Hi-Ex and Incendiary!
On Dodge ‘em on Armor piercing, on stun shot and boot knife!
To the perp’s head! To the perp’s skull!
Now shoot away! Shoot away! Shoot away all!”
As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, blow it into the sky
So out through the iso cubes the bullets they flew
To impact the war-droid, and Judge Dredd came too--
And then, in a twinkling, I opened up all the cubes
The jail cells were emptying, even the juves!
As i drew in my head, and was turning around,
In through the door the Droid came with a bound
He was clad all in metal, from his trunk to his hood
And his chassis was all tarnished with ashes and blood
The body of Dredd he had flung on his back
And he looked like a demon, his chest badge said TAX
His armor-how it twinkled! His gun barrels how scary!
His eyes glowed like roses, his mood set to bury!
His droll other chest badge was drawn up so to see
That was was the old guard, was marked ABC
The stump of a boot knife was jammed tight in his head
And back from behind, came the revived Judge Dredd!
He quickly got free and punched the droid in its belly,
And the robot malfunctioned, like a bowl full of jelly.
The war droid went down, with a right jolly old SQUELF
And I laughed when I saw it, in spite of myself.
With a shot to its core and twist to its head
Soon I was alone in the room with ol’ Judge Dredd
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And beat up all the rioters, including the jerks!
And laying a finger aside of his gun
And giving a nod, the perps turned to run
They sprang to their cells, so fast that they whistled
And back down the doors clamped, the escape plan had fizzled
But then Judge Dredd grabbed me, I felt the cuffs tighten-
“Merry Christmas to all, you're going to Titan!"

Right, the clock's gone midnight, so might as well get this one in now.


It was my brother Kieran who introduced me to the prog many, many years ago (I can't even remember a time before he read it in fact).  Although he lapsed a long time ago (though still enjoys dipping in) he has fond memories of the House of Tharg, and made me a Judge Death T-shirt for Christmas last year, which i snuck into the advent calendar on the 25th.  I love it and wear it as much as possible - I wore it today, in fact.

Anyway there's another one up for grabs - one size L to give away.  To be in with a chance to win it, just send me a PM with the words '2018 competition'.  I'll pick a name out of the hat on the 24th, announce it on a seperate thread in this section, and get it to the winner after Christmas (sorry, would love to send it as a Christmas gift, but there's no way it would get there on time).  Good luck and Merry Christmas!

I originally intended this to be a comic strip... but I left it too late and probably lack the talent for that anyway.

I might lack the talent for writing too, but this was an enjoyable task. Apologies for any bad grammar. I hope it makes you smile at least. Merry Christmas!

The Santa you Need


Dirk peered out of the alley. “Here comes a good prospect,” he said.

Nigel glanced at the portly figure walking amiably towards them. It was night, but the lamppost close to the eldster was still functional. The red hood and beard were unmistakable.

“I’m really not happy about robbing folk on Christmas Eve, especially one of those Block-Mall Santas.” he said. “They give presents to underprivileged kiddies.”

Give? They’re paid by rich parents to give gifts to spoilt brats,” said Dirk. “We’re underprivileged kids.” (Nigel was seventeen and Dirk was eighteen, so they weren’t far off.) “Now old whiskers can give some charity to us. Don’t be a dweeb. Get ready.”

Dirk drew his long blade. Nigel sighed and picked up the baseball bat he’d left standing against the wall.

As ‘Santa’ drew near to the alleyway, the two lads stepped out.

“Ho ho ho!” declared Santa. “Merry Christmas young men! What can I do for you?”

Dirk sneered contemptuously. “You can start by emptying your sack old man, or we’ll go ‘ho ho ho’ on your ass!”

Nigel tried not to groan out loud. Dirk could be a walking cliché sometimes. He watched way too many classical action movies on the holovid.

Santa opened his sack. “I have just started my shift, so as you can see, my sack is empty”, he replied. “That is about to change, however.”

Nigel felt his skin break out in goose-bumps. During the last sentence, the tone of Santa’s voice had changed from the usual cheerful sound of an old man after too many lines of happy-dust, to a harsh grate. As Santa raised his head, Nigel spotted the gleam of a visor beneath his hood.

“He’s one of those wally squad judges Dirk! Lets get out of here!” he said. (In the moment, it didn’t occur to him to wonder why an undercover judge would bother wearing his own uniform under his disguise.)

Santa, straightened up… and strangely his shoulders continued to rise as his torso seemed to lengthen, re-configuring from the fat figure to something lean, and lethal. When he had finished, his head towered eight foot over the lads’. His eyes glowed red behind the visor, (or was the visor his eyes? Nigel couldn’t tell). In the moonlight, Nigel saw the gleam of chrome beneath Santa’s hood, and from the torso glimpsed within the red robe.

“I’m not a member of wally squad”, said the robot, for it was clear now that’s what it was. “But I am, a judge. I also, am Santa. Not the one you want, perhaps, but the one you need. My gift to you both is a sentence of ten years in a juve-cube for attempted armed robbery. And five years for declaring embarrassing cliches in mockery of the season.”

A long red and white striped day-stick, like a huge stick of candy, slid out of robo-Santa’s sleeve. “One way or another, you’re going in the sack. Resistance is useless.”

The lads resisted. That was when the screaming started.

Hershey and Dredd had watched the proceedings on a monitor, via a live feed streamed to them from the Mek. They saw everything from the robot's point of view. Dredd didn’t like robots very much. He certainly didn’t approve of the auxiliary mechanismo units, who were operating more frequently throughout the city, and this Christmas variant seemed like a cheap joke! A robot could never replace a true judge! He had to grudgingly admit, though, despite the hokey seasonal trappings, the speed in which the mek disposed of the two perps was impressive.

The stupid more aggressive one had actually attempted to lunge at the mek with his knife. The knife would have done no more harm than to tear the robots robe, but it didn’t get that far. Dirk’s hand had hardly moved before the mek’s own hand had moved into shot grasping Dirk’s. There was the sound of breaking twigs as that large metal hand squeezed. After one quick sharp tap on the head with the mek’s daystick, Dirk stopped screaming.

The second perp, who had seemed a bit more sensible to Dredd, almost surprised him. Nigel’s initial reaction had been to run. On seeing his mate in trouble, however, he had turned, dropped his baseball bat and pulled out a gun. He was pretty fast for a novice, too, and he fired three times, before the mek could respond.

The bullets didn’t harm the droid, of course. The screen fizzed momentarily as a bullet bounced off the mek’s visor. Fortunately for Nigel, he had fired his weapon at an angle, or he would have effectively shot himself with the ricochet.

Like all mechanismo units, the SANTA unit, had a firearm of his, own, yet he did not draw it. Instead he threw the daystick with a quick whip of his hand hitting the perp squarely in the forehead.

Hershey turned to Dredd as the mek deposited both of the unconscious perps into it's sack. (After that, it flung the sack over it’s shoulder and continued on down the road humming a Christmas carol, back in jovial fat man mode, but neither of the judges observed this. They had moved on.)

“I know you don’t approve of the reinstated mechanismo programme, Dredd, but based purely on the operation you just saw, what do you think of our prototype Yuletide series mechanismo unit?” asked the chief judge.

After a few seconds of serious thought, (as if he ever thought any other way) Dredd replied.

“I think it will need a bigger sack.”

This year I thought it'd be appropriate to remember the message transmitted by the crew of Apollo 8, on this day, Christmas Eve 1968. It was the first time in history that humans had seen, with their own eyes, "Earthrise" over the Moon.

With all the troubles on this world, it is good to remind ourselves of that which binds us to one another, this small blue planet, this Earth, Our home.

I can think of nothing to say, but repeat the words of Frank Borman, Commander Apollo 8.

"And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, A Merry Christmas - and God bless all of you, all of you on the good Earth."

I don't think I have posted this to the Advent Calendar before, even though that's what it was created for!
Merry Christmas!

Suits you,  sir.  First time I've seen it in fact, looks a bit crisper and less bleachy than my one - the brother's clearly been working on his stencilling skillz.
