Yuletide!

Woo-hoo! The super-early Yuletide reveal miraculously coincided with the only 15 hours I have free from family obligations the whole holiday season!

Thus I was able to read my lovely gifts in peace. They were:

Ar Haner Nos yn Glir y Daeth (Upon the Midnight Clear) (1920 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Y Gwyll | Hinterland
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Tom Mathias & Mared Rhys
Characters: Tom Mathias, Mared Rhys, Siân Owens
Additional Tags: Yuletide, Ghosts, References to Welsh Mythology
Summary:

A seemingly open and shut case results in Mathias and Mared hanging about the castle ruins late one night - and they find they're not alone...



First of all, I can't believe someone wrote me Hinterland fic--that seemed like such a long shot to ask for. But they did, and it's fabulous--very atmospheric, a hint of the supernatural, and just the right prickly, protective relationship between Tom and Mared.

Ancillary Ghost (2229 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Imperial Radch Series - Ann Leckie
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Seivarden Vendaai
Summary:

Seivarden as honored guest, and the importance of tea.

Takes place after Ancillary Sword (spoilers).

Thank you very much to my betas, who will be credited after reveals.



I can't say too much about this without spoiling Ancillary Sword for those of you who haven't read it, BUT, if you were intrigued by the ending of the novel, and love Seivarden, as I was and do, this is an amazing fic! The author gets the tone of the books just right, and seamlessly builds onto the world-building, as it were. I loved the sense of the ancientness of the Radch (and its fragility).

I haven't read much else, but if, by some chance, you love the radio program Bleak Expectations as much as we do in my house, you should know that there's a brilliant fic in the archive this year.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmassy or non-Christmassy day!

(my December meme is morphing into a January meme, but I'll get to it all, I promise!)
