Aubrey-Maturin Series - Patrick O'Brian

On Solitude (15123 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] toft - Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin

Jack/Stephen Accidental telepathic bonding fic, that manages to balance and remain true to both the fantastical trope and the historical canon and characters. The one Yuletide story where I was absolutely certain I knew the author as soon as I read it, because I'm not sure anyone but Toft could have written this story.


Books of the Raskura - Martha Wells

Children of the New Court (13032 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] pentapus - Jade/Moon, Moon/Chime, Jade/Moon/Chime

Fabulous long, plotty Cloud Roads fic. A great Chime pov and a great look at how Chime and Moon are both still struggling some to adjust to their changed circumstances.


The Dark Is Rising - Susan Cooper

Once and Future (1693 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Llwyden - Bran Davies/Will Stanton

Wonderful future-fic full of rebirth and reincarnation and Will stepping into the role of oldest Old One. This is totally my headcanon now.


Enchanted Forest Chronicles - Patricia Wrede

The Balance of Affection (6060 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] RecessiveJean - Cimorene/Mendanbar

Wonderful family fic. I especially love Cimorene and Mendanbar's relationship here, and watching Mendanbar and Daystar slowly come to know each other as father and son. Also, footstools! And cats! The cats are a wonderful touch, very in-keeping with canon.


Invisible Cities - Italo Calvino

Invisible Citiez (559 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] norah

A series of texts between Marco Polo and Kublai Khan. No, really. Glorious and ridiculous. You really don't need to know canon to enjoy this one, or at least I didn't.


Young Avengers

Scenes from a Wedding (2682 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] traincat - Teddy Altman/Billy Kaplan

Completely charming wedding-fic full of wonderful character moments and clever details. And family. Oh, do those two boys have such complicated families... I don't' think I'd ever read anything of Traincat's before this Yuletide, but I clearly should have been, since this is the fourth of their stories I've recced this year.


Captain Britain & MI-13

boxes (656 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] misura

Dane meets Faiza's collection of comics. (Well, a part of it, anyway.)

A delightful moment between Dane and Faiza's mother. I loved Farida in the comics and it's great fun to see her again here.


Children's Work - Dessa Song

…And a Song for Minneapolis (2541 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] starlady

A great story about growing up and how complicated family relationships can be.


Space Girl - Ewan McColl & Peggy Seeger Song

My Only Self (4587 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] staranise - Space Girl/Servo Robot Rocket Pilot

The love story of a girl and her ship/robot. Completely adorable, with great worldbuilding. And, oh yes, tentacle porn. Because fandom.


Iowa - Dar Williams Song

A Great and Gruesome Height (19126 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] jaegecko - Narrator/OFC

A wonderfully complex f/f love story that really captures the feel of the song. Set within the universe of, but featuring no characters from The West Wing
