Yooo, welcome to The Graveyard Shift! This is your nightly safe space to eat, pray, love, and shoot the shit with your fellow nerds here on Talk Amongst Yourselves, Kotaku’s reader-run blog. Whether sticking to the topic at hand or throwing out whatever randomness is on your mind, hop on in!

Twas the TAY before Christmas, and all through the shift, people were commenting on DisturbedShadow’s new GIF. Krakken_Unleashed hung the stockings with care, in hopes our Secret Santa gifts would soon be there. Zarnyx and Barkspawn were nestled all tight in their lab, trying to inject cheer into PyramidHeadCrab. With Furbs talking Run Club with Shiryu and Nach, I, the first Jolly, settled down for a long winter’s nap.

The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow, gave the luster of awesome to the Ani-TAY posts below. When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh being dragged by an angry Swan and Novibear.

With a giant boy driver, so lively and quick, and a hat that let you know the man could detect. More rapid than a Bowling review, his coursers they came, he whistled and shouted and called them by name.

“Now Duke, now Ishamael! Now, Axel and Gar! On, Kcet, UI, and Koda Kazar! To the top of the site, no topic’s too small, now write away, write away, write away all!”

InvadingDuck spoke not a word, and went straight to his work, And Meathead started calling himself Jolly (the jerk). GBD smiled, touching his nose, happily seeing the post count as it rose.

He sprang to his sleigh, and to Morie did whistle,and away they all flew like the dawn of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight, “Happy Christmas TAY, and to all a good night!”
