Yuletide!

Black Beauty

The Kindness of Men (Ginger, G) I haven't read Black Beauty in years, and would never have thought to go looking for fic for it, but I'm glad I clicked on this one. It's an alternate ending for Ginger, and warms my rescue-pet-owning heart.

Brothers Sinister Series

The Christmas Box (Genevieve/Amanda, E) MY PRESENT. In which Genevieve and Amanda explore the (sexy) joys of modernity.

Carmilla

someday we won't remember this (Lafontaine/Perry, T) Lafontaine and JP get their fake date on to make Perry jealous. It's exactly as romcom as it sounds.

Silas University Student Handbook, Bestiary, and Survival Guide (Abridged) (Laura/Carmilla, G) Unsurprisingly, there are a few unusual caveats in the Silas student handbook. Cute and funny.

Elizabethan and Jacobean Theatre & Literature RPF

Sad Stories of the Death of Kings (Shakespeare and Marlowe, G) Because it's not Yuletide without Shakespeare and Marlowe: the two playwrights experiment with genre. I feel like somewhere in the afterlife, Derek Jarman is tenting his fingers delightedly at this fic.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Bullets Are A Nuisance (Perry/Harry, T) The dialogue- which makes up most of the fic- is pitch-perfectly suited to canon, and I love the hypochondriac Harry/long-suffering Perry dynamic here.

(re)scheduling conflict resolution (Perry/Harry, Harry/Harmony, T) Once again, the dialogue is perfect, and the dynamic of Perry and Harmony trading off Harry while Harry splutters is deeply hilarious. 

Scarborough Fair

gather it all in a bunch of heather (OFC/OFC) Talking about the details of this one would spoil it, but it's beautiful and bittersweet.

True Detective

Little Cactus (Rust Cohle, Audrey Hart, T) OW OW OW. The Rust/Audrey dynamic is severely underexplored in canon, and this fic fills in the gap beautifully while staying true to both characters and following up on the themes of the show.
