Author: FaithDaria@yahoo.com
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Oz: Into the Wild by Christopher Golden, set after MTV’s Spiderman series, season 1.
Summary: Give your family the gift of yourself this holiday season.

All in all, the Christmas party was very low-key for Harry: no live band, simple catering instead of a several course meal, and less than fifty guests, none of them celebrities. MJ would have enjoyed herself immensely if it hadn’t been for the vague feeling that Peter was avoiding her. She couldn’t be sure, of course, but every time she looked for him, he was on the opposite side of the room.

She was planning her next approach, if for no other reason than to alleviate the boredom, when the room became quickly and eerily silent. Following the glares of Harry’s formally dressed business associates, MJ turned and saw the reason behind this response. He was the textbook definition of scruffy-looking, in a penthouse apartment surrounded by suits and designer dresses. Harry started towards the interloper, and MJ prepared to sail in and smooth the edges, when her friend greeted the young man.

“Daniel!” The young millionaire swept the other man into a hug, and the silence ended as abruptly as it began. “What brings you here?”

The shorter man shrugged. “It’s Oz. All foreign civilians were asked to leave the country.”

“And where were you this time?”

“Romania.”

“And what were you doing there? Never mind, I don’t want to know.” Harry had a smile on his face, a big genuine smile of a kind that MJ hadn’t seen in a long time. He turned to her, still smiling and lead his friend over to her. “MJ, I’d like you to meet my cousin Daniel – sorry, Oz. Just about the only member of the Osbourne family that isn’t a vulture. Oz, meet Mary Jane Watson.”
