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 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.

Excellent 5-times fic. I love how this works through Clint's various excuses to himself in a very believable way.

Young Avengers

we make midnight a maquette of the year (1598 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lady_Ganesh - background Teddy Altman/Billy Kaplan

Tommy and Teddy bonding on New Years. A lovely look at the boys of the expanded Kaplan household. (I continue to maintain Billy has the BEST parents ever for taking in both his orphaned, alien boyfriend and his runaway mystical/psychic twin.)

The Adventures of Jackpot and Zombie Girl (3830 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Traincat
