It looks like I'm not going to get deeper into the stack any time soon, so I'm going to just go ahead with this list of links now:
Dungeons and Dragons (the '80s cartoon) scored two stories this year, both for Astolat. I enjoyed each in its own way. Both are very pleasingly canon-friendly. The longer is the more skilled, but the shorter serves up an idea that's drawing me back to canon to explore.
Forever Knight also boasts two stories, both hefty, one for Greerwatson and one for Quietcuriosity. The one for Greer is plot-driven casefic, just as she likes best; it's set in early to mid second season. The other may be exceedingly excellent, and certainly is canon aware, but it's tagged for graphic violence and rape, so I haven't read it and probably won't; it's set before the flashbacks of "A Fate Worse Than Death." If you read it, let me know what you think — should I go there? We all have our squicks and triggers...
1,623 fandoms are represented, but no one happened to write Battlestar Galactica ('78) or Young Blades this year. There are 9 stories each for Forever and Grimm, but a quick glance didn't yield any immediately grabbing my fancy. (There's also nothing for Call the Midwife; did the fandom get too big for this game?)
Do you have any recommendations to share from this year's Yuletide?
