So, I participated in both Yuletide and the Jinge Bells, Batman Smells fic exchanges, which--let me tell you--made for an interesting December oh... 15-20th, when it got to be crunch time for both exchanges. Which is neither here nor there. Because the point
of this entry is to share the awesome fics I recieved this year through these exchanges!
First, the Yuletide fics! (I was so spoiled this year)String Theory
by par_avion, my wonderful, delightful Yuletide author. A lovely fic about Aly and George from Tamora Pierce's Tortall books. Takes place shortly after Trickster's Queen, and is a wonderful look at their interesting father-daughter dynamic. A really great read--especially if you love Aly and George as much as I do.Letters from Rajmuat
by glass_icarus--A Yuletide Treat! Another take on ALy and George (did I mention how spoiled I was?). Comprised entirely of correspondence from Aly to George--and a really great handle on Aly's voice. I love letter!fic.My Throne I Resign
by Dien. Another Yuletide Treat, but this one is a drabble on Aerin and Luthe from Robin McKinley's Damar books. It's wonderful
and hurts in all the right places. It reads like an excerpt from Ms. McKinley's own pages.Memory's Joy
by Merfilly--a NYR 2008 fic! For me! Batman TAS's Dick looks back on one of the defining moments of his and Bruce's relationship. A wonderful, feel-good father-son piece which set me into fits of joy this afternoon when I got the notification.A Ticket Out
--Being... my Yuletide offering. :-P A Blade Trinity fic about Abby and King. King is a vampire who wants to die. Abby offers to rectify the situation.
And now for the JBBS fics (a shorter list, I promise!):Tim Remembers
--written for lady_sarai
and I! Follows Tim-Robin's relationships with his Young Justice teammates over the years. A very happy, light-hearted fic.Operation: Christmas Spirit
and my Yuletide offering for Kate. Bart decides Tim works too hard and needs some holiday cheer. He brings Cissie along for reinforcement, but Tim is working
::whew!:: And I think that is all. It's been a good year for fic-gifts. Also--angel_gidget
, don't despair! I am
working on a fic for you, and I'm hoping to get it done soon, but it's going slower than expected, and also acquiring trace amounts of plot. But--I bring you a teaser!( Cut for short excerpt from as-yet-untitled Tiny Tim fic )
