Yuletide 2018 Recs

I've read my way through the madness collection and am slowly making my way through the main collection, but I wanted to go ahead and get a rec post up before the end of the year/reveals. So here it is! They are arranged alphabetically by fandom and then title. I'll update as I read more, and with author names after reveals :)

ETA: Last updated 2/27. New recs marked with **.

Better Off Ted

**Blue Sky Thinking by useyourtelescope | thedreamygirl (gen, rated G)
Following the success of the weaponized pumpkin, Veridian Dynamics decided R&D needed to work on more unique food ideas.
Sometimes it's the foods that don't explode that cause Ted the most trouble.
-- This brought back all my BOT nostalgia. So well in tone with the show!

Calvin & Hobbes

Rules of Parenting by DianaSolaris (Calvin/Susie, rated G)
Calvin's mother didn't have any guidance when raising Calvin, but she wants to be sure that little baby Locke doesn't get stuck in the same situation.
-- I'm sure any child of Calvin's will need all the help they can get lol


A better night's sleep by Nary (Alucard/Trevor/Sypha, rated E)
"Does it really feel right to you, being here without him?"
Trevor didn't have to ask who she meant. "I doubt he'd really want to be here when he has all of the Belmont Hold and all of his father's castle to sulk around in."
"He's all alone," Sypha said. "I can't stop thinking of how lonely he must be."
"He's probably just about to settle in for a nice decade-long nap," Trevor said, but his heart wasn't in it. "You're going to say... we need to go back," he said, as Sypha matched his last five words perfectly.
-- They should have stayed together!!

Neoblastic by Estirose (Lisa/Dracula, rated G)
Lisa and Vlad discuss their child-to-be.
-- I really love them together, and this is so sweet.

The Chronicles of Riddick

**The Only Way Out [is Through] by Vashti | tvashti (Fry/Riddick, rated T)
But she wasn’t going to die here after everything else. Not when someone—maybe the Imam’s Allah, maybe her grandmother’s Jesus, maybe a random, uncaring universe that used micro-meteors to kill the innocent with one hand and cave-bugs to save the guilty with the other—had just given her a chance. Carolyn wasn’t going to waste it.
-- I always love seeing Fry survive.

Crimson Peak

'til Death by UrbanAmazon (Edith/Thomas, rated G)
Years after the events at Crimson Peak, Edith returns. Closure is not always a simple thing, for the living or the dead.
-- I love that this doesn't shy away from the lingering effects on Edith or Alan.


**Vanessa and Wade’s Annual Welcome Back to Life Ho-Down, ft. Cable by Meatball42 (Vanessa/Nate/Wade, rated M)
“Wade and I have a tradition whenever one of us turns out not to be dead.” She smiles at Cable politely. “Would you like to stay for dinner?”
“And by dinner, she means bare minimum twelve hours of the most animalistic ravaging of each others’ naughty bits that you can see outside Bangkok, big boy. Really putting the freak in fan-freaking-tastic multi-orgasmic cum-marathon.”
“So what do you say?”
Cable grinds his jaw for a second, but honestly, who would pass up these A-listers?
“Why the hell not?”
-- So hilarious and wonderful!

Dinotopia - James Gurney

**Stories By Wintry Night by AntigravityDevice (Will/Sylvia, rated G)
A little village up on the mountains of Dinotopia welcomes unexpected guests on a mid-winter night.
-- Some soft, sweet worldbuilding.


**Double Touch by yhlee | etothey (Aiden/Harvard, rated T)
Harvard doesn't think Aiden is interested. As it turns out, the situation is more complicated than that.
-- So many feels for these two <3
Goblin Market - Christina Rossetti

Where The Wild Roses Grow by sweetcarolanne (Jeannie/Lizzie, rated T)
The flowers on Jeanie's grave did not die - they lived, and grew ravenous. They will bring Jeanie the vengeance that she seeks, and lead her back to hope and love...
-- Jeannie becomes a vampire, heck yes!

The Good Place

Five Times Philosophy Class Was Totally Easy by storiesfortravellers (gen, rated T)
Once in a while, the group understands the readings surprisingly well.
Sort of.

-- I love that they understand philosophy, just not in the way Chidi intends them to.

The Greatest Showman

5 Times Phillip Carlyle Questioned His Choices… and 1 Time He Didn’t by Lady Sarai | lady_sarai (Anne/Phillip, rated G)
Phillip Carlyle has a lot of choices to make, and a lot of time to think about whether or not he made the right ones. Some of them were definitely the right call. Some of them were not.
-- Love getting to see all of this from Phillip's perspective.


**A Tree Grows in Bed-Stuy by james (gen, rated G)
In which Kate wonders if Clint could be kept out of trouble with coloring books. And there is reverse-stealing of a tree. (Not the Christmas kind.)
-- Hawkguy is the best and this is wonderful XD

The Hidden Almanac

Be safe, and stay out of trouble. by marginaliana (gen, rated G)
Welcome to the Hidden Almanac, everybody – I'm Pastor Drom! Reverend Mord is out sick today. Well, I say sick, but I think it might be more of an existential dread. Anyway, for today I thought we'd do something a little different. I've had a lot of questions about how Mord and I first met…
-- I'm so here for Drom dishing about how she met Mord.

Strike the Harp and Join the Chorus by Violsva (gen, rated T)

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

A Long Time Coming by badmagician (Billy/Goodnight, rated T)
Billy has never owned anything as valuable as the knives Goody had made for him, and he's certainly never been gifted anything that valuable. It doesn't seem like the kind of present a man would give a business partner, or even a friend.

Lucky by badmagician (Billy/Goodnight, rated M)
Billy's frustratingly injured. Goody finally steps up to lend a helping hand.
