  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
The Updated Scrooge by tucsonmike on 26 December 2005 12:24am
I have been having fun playing with this but wont be amiss to feedback.

I made Scrooge Scots. (The idea actually came from the Father-in-Law in the George MacDonald Fraser Flashman novels). The Ghost of Jacob Marley is actually Angus MacDonald of the Highlands. Scrooge grabs his sword from the wall, but Angus vanishes.
The ghost of Christmas Past give Scrooge coal. Scrooge thinks this is great. He wont have to pay for coal.
The Ghost of Christmas Present shows him the two kids and Scrooge says, Och, more for my new chain of workhouses.
The Ghots of Christmas Future shows Scrooges gravestone. All Scrooge wants to know is "how much did that cost.?"

The Cratchit family is deported to North Carolina.

What I don't know what to do with it is as follows:
1. Is Scrooge redeemed as in the original?
2. Does he come to some sort of bad end for his rotteness?

It's turning into Christmas Carol meets Kidnapped.
This could be fun. (And silly).
