These are just some of the stories I've enjoyed at yuletide this year.

Oo-de-lally Slash (106 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Robin Hood (Disney 1973)

You will end up singing this, you know. But maybe not at work, yes?

Attack Chickens, Children, and Other Hazards of Suburban Life (1361 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Calvin & Hobbes, Hobbes and Bacon

I think it was the mention of attack chickens that hooked me… Or was it the zombie princess? Joy from a fandom I didn’t even know existed until recently.

Moomintroll in Autumn (3873 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Mumintroll | Moomins Series - Tove Jansson, Winnie-the-Pooh - A. A. Milne

A loving, gentle crossover that I can easily imagine reading to children who love either world.

Any Other Way (1607 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Tortall - Tamora Pierce
Three Times is a Trend (1023 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Protector of the Small - Tamora Pierce

Two stories about Kel and the people around her in the future, both of which take my favorite character and only add more to love.

Harp and Soup (1737 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Chronicles of Prydain - Lloyd Alexander

It’s Flewddur Fflam! What more do you need to know!

Blueprint (3305 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: The Invisible Bridge - Julie Orringer

Having been the writer with the fewest hits at Yuletide myself, I try to make a point of going to read the story at the bottom of the list. This year I was rewarded with a lyrical character study (illustrated yet!) that guarantees I’ll be looking for the source canon now.

And another one! Added in a comment because it's taking too slow to edit the main entry.


Get Me To the Justice of the Peace On Time (http://archiveofourown.org/works/599810) (1129 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Singin' in the Rain (1952) (http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Singin'%20in%20the%20Rain%20(1952))

Singin’ in the Rain is one of those fandoms I didn’t even know I had as a fandom until I started stumbling across the fic. This story is one of the reasons why. I do love Cosmo!

Ooh, thank you so much for your kind words! :D *author*

(Also, YES COSMO. XD I apparently need to find a Singin' in the Rain icon now...)

Oh my gosh -- I was just looking over my list of books read in 2012, and The Invisible Bridge was both one of the first that I finished this year and one of the best books I read all year!

How amazing then, to read your post and discover that someone wrote such an incredible and beautiful fic! I honestly can't recommend the book to you enough, my favorite cousin recommended it to me on Christmas eve in 2011.

Oh, I have to bookmark this to check out later! Too caught up in finishing up my story for the GFIC Yule exchange (which we hold on New Year's).

BTW, this wee Sherlock Holmes fic showed up in another non-Yuletide exchange:

Scattered Marigolds
