Ghosts of Yuletide Past

Apparently it is Rectober this month, and also the Yuletide letters post is up (signups opening tomorrow, I believe), so this seems like the perfect time to rec all of the gift fics I've received in past Yuletides.

Yuletide 2008
Three times Valancy said what she was thinking (and one time she didn't have to) (The Blue Castle - L.M. Montgomery, Valancy gen, 2k)
The very first exchange fic I ever received! My request was basically one of those "I'd love anything!" ones, but the result is just lovely, and so very much in the spirit of the book. I think the Valancy+Olive scene is the one that sticks most in my mind.

Yuletide 2009
Good Children (Spirited Away, Chihiro gen, 2.9k)
Exactly the day-in-the-life/worldbulding fic I wanted about Chihiro's life in the bathhouse. I have particularly fond memories of her further encounter with the Daikon spirit.

Eh By Gum (Wallace and Gromit, gen adventures, 5.3k)
Candy making caper with mandatory sneaky villain! The voices here are so good. There are so many great lines. I see there is more W&G fic on the archive now, but I think this was the first.

Yuletide 2010
The Time Comes (seaQuest DSV Krieg+Ford gen, 2.1k)
I think this was the third year in a row I'd requested seaQuest fic, and finally my ship came!. (Except not a ship, because it's gen. :D) This is set very much in and around one of my favorite episodes of S1, and captures some of the thoughts and motivations of one Ben Krieg (who reminds me a little of my current Brad Marchand headcanons, though that is neither here nor there).

Yuletide 2013
and now we are many places (FF, gen ensemble adventures, 2.9k)
A fic about a day out with the Future Foundation, featuring exactly as much mishap and joy as the comic itself provides. (Gosh, I loved this comic.)

Yuletide 2014
So Goddamned Beautiful (Saga, Alana/Marko, 4.6k)
AKA the Alana/Marko mpreg fic of my dreeeeeeams. I accidentally peeked at the tags for this ahead of time and freaked out, and then it met all of my expectations and more. The worldbuilding is perfect, the character voices are perfect, it's porny in all the right places. BEST.

A Tale of Two Thieves (Uncanny X-Force, Psylocke/Cluster, 2.3k)
A very sweet fic about two thieving mutant ladies coming to terms with themselves and each other. The only femslash I've ever gotten for YT; apparently it's inspired me to request a bunch more, judging by my letter this year!

I'm glad you liked the FF fic, it was lots of fun to write for you! :) (I miss that comic a lot, too.)

<3333 It really was delightful. I think approximately half the fic in the tag was written either by or for me (mostly for), because I loved it so much.

The Blue Castle! I am going to read the HECK out of that.

And thank you for the kind words - you made my first YT damn near perfect. So I'm bound to dick it up this time...

Also, at some point I really need to re-format SGB, it's not ideal. My old computer was hideous at formatting docs.
