Unveiling a new winter layout and

kicking off the season by re-visiting some excellent fanfic.

Advent fic Who’s Afraid of the Red White and Green, written in December 2003 by estepheia and ladykat772. I'll post a link each day during Advent and then more Chrismassy fic links throughout the festive season.


Anyone know of any other Christmas fics worth re-visiting?

Or new stuff?

Like Day One of bogwitch's fabulous Advent Calendar. Go. Open the first window. Shoo!

Seasonal Manpire ones? Rec away, I'm in need of a Chrissmassy banner over on hesadevilspike.

I've written some Christmas fics over the years. Can't guarantee you'll like them as I was quite young when I did them but, you know, they're here if you're bored. LOL

Boggy' s calendar is a very nice idea , isn't it ?

Here's stories I thought of for your links :

-Enigmaticblue : All my heart this night rejoicing
http://www.freewebs.com/enigmaticblue/rejoice1.htm

-Enigmaticblue :Dreaming of a white christmas
http://www.freewebs.com/enigmaticblue/dreaming1.htm

-Eurydice : Promises of frost
http://lubakmetyk.infinology.net/others/eurydice/frost1.htm

-A.Logan : Baby, it's cold outside
http://lubakmetyk.infinology.net/others/addie/BabyItsColdOutside1.htm

Pretty layout !

Thanks for those, Caroline. I've added to my list. I have enough recs to December 18th so far.
1st-Dec-2006 01:26 pm (UTC)
Well, I've always been very fond of Twelve Days so I really think you need to rec that too *g*.

I adore your new layout.
1st-Dec-2006 01:34 pm (UTC)
Thanks Kathy. I had fun designing the new layout.

I'd already decided to rec Twelve Days for the newbies, and will put a link to each chapter starting on 24th. I'm in need of about 5 more recs so far. All About Spike is down so I can't search there.

Self-pimping, because Caroline stole my fave (other than Twelve Days, which is a bit special). I've only ever written one Christmas fic this one. It's a bit saccharine, but if you're desperate to fill a slot it might do. Won't be in the least offended if you don't user it :)

Nice idea, BTW.

Boggy recced that. I like it and said so at the time so it's already on the list.

There have been quite a few newbies to the fandom this year so I felt this needed doing.

I love this idea. I'm going to have as much fun this Advent with your fic recs and bogwitch's Advent Calendar as my kids are with their various different calendars.
1st-Dec-2006 08:02 pm (UTC)
I hope you enjoy the offerings.

Anyone know of any other Christmas fics worth re-visiting?

Yours. :D

::smooshes you::

Twelve Days holds a very special place in my heart - but it's not all mine. bogwitch and calove sweated at the coalface all December more than pulled their weight on that one.
1st-Dec-2006 08:09 pm (UTC)
Yes, but I found it through you AND I saw your fingerprints all over it :D

So very very good.

If self-pimping is allowed, News From Heaven is my Christmas story from last year - Willow centric, with some girl/girl bits.

And speakr2customrs And Glory Shone Around won Enigmatic Blue's Christmas Ficathon last year - with an opening of “They are carol singers, oh most magnificent scrumptiousness,” Murk informed his God, bobbing his head obsequiously. “A seasonal annoyance. Should I have them dismembered?” it is a really good read!

Self pimping is wrong encouraged, escpecially from talented writers and a Willow-centric fic will go some way to diluting the Spike-heavy list.

Thanks for these - adding them to the list.
