Hi, everybody!

With the exception of one long fic, I've actually made it through the Yuletide archive (main collection), which has never happened before. So why not post some recs?

My own gift was extraordinary, one of the hits of this year's fest, which is a really lovely feeling, I must say:

The Bowerbird wasn't playing fair; Jack couldn't debate these pieces of paper. He couldn't tell pieces of paper and a growing pile of feathers that he, too, remembered the rare treat that was eating a single piece of tropical fruit in the heavy heat of a Christmas afternoon, stickying his best suit of clothes, which had been so clean and pressed for church that morning.

(In which Inspector Jack Robinson is having a fairly uneventful year, divorce notwithstanding, until he acquires a lady doctor for a drinking buddy and receives a series of flirtatious notes from a jewel thief.)

Summary:

“There is an elf. On my shelf,” Captain Holt pronounces. It’s entirely possible he sounds more aggrieved than usual - Jake can never tell. Amy’s frowning though, and as the leading inhouse expert on all things Holt, she’s most likely frowning because he’s unhappy. Or she could be frowning because she just remembered she forgot to floss that morning.

“I didn’t put it there,” says Amy.

“ - Name of your sex tape!” Jake says, because it’s basically a reflex at this point, like punctuation, except he doesn’t use punctuation so that’s a bad example. Scratch that analogy! But the point remains.

Amy’s biting her lip. Maybe it’s the floss thing after all.

“You misunderstand,” says Captain Holt. “I placed the elf on my shelf.” There is a long pause. “His name is Jingles,” Captain Holt offers, as if this will clarify proceedings.

Jake blinks. Twice.

Brigdh! She is so great.

Based on that fic, I'd have to agree!

Seriously, if you have any other fandoms in common with her, go check it out. She got me into Swordspoint simply by writing so much of it the damn idea got stuck in my head.

Thank you so much for the rec! :D

Your fic was delightful - it was my pleasure!

Hello! Thank you so much for these recs, I never would have found any of them by myself. I just read the Sayers Wimsey fic and it bowled me over. That was close to my heart, that one.

How lovely that fahye was your gift-giver! I know her writing from the Battlestar Galactica fandom, and she is absolutely amazing. I don't know the mystery series your fic is set in, but I'll probably read it anyway :)

Please accept belated best wishes for a very happy 2015! :)

Hey, sugar - happy new year to you too!

I'm so glad you found something to love in these recs; that Wimsey story was particularly amazing, I must say.

I don't know fahye, but given the amazing quality of my gift, can well believe she's one of the shining lights of whatever fandom she's in. Also, you MUST get acquainted with Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries! I can send you download links for all of the eps, but if you want to just try out the first ep without downloading anything, see here.
