The Twelve Days of Christmas, Devil Wears Prada-style

Title: The Twelve Days of Christmas, Devil Wears Prada-style
Pairing: Andy/Miranda
Rating: pretty much G
Author's Note: Inspired by kali_bluemxrolkr's request for a DWP 12 Days of Christmas here in the Christmas Cracker Fic-a-thon. I'm so sorry! I just realized I'd given credit to the wrong person for the prompt.
I generally don't write, but thought I had some ideas that could work.  I hope this suits.
Thanks: Many thanks to jazwriter for tossing ideas around with me in chat, letting me know when she thought I'd taken a wrong turn, and making suggestions that inspired my thought processes. (Heck, I should probably have offered her co-author status.) Thanks also to damelola for her feedback, when I was uncertain whether to post. I've gone and changed things after listening to other feedback, and my gut. Any mistakes are mine, because I specifically decided against some suggestions.
Disclaimer:  The movie, The Devil Wears Prada, belongs to 20th Century Fox and L. Weisberger. It was unreadable as a book, so all props for producing a film inspiring so many fanworks truly belong to: Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, David Frankel and Aline Brosh-McKenna. This homage is a non-profit fanwork, and should fall under the fair use doctrine.
Dedication: I dedicate this to chilly_flame for her Small Favors stories, which were the first DWP fics I read, and to the wonderful writers who have offered me the honor of beta-ing for them.
