Yuletide Recs

I was lucky enough to get TWO Battle Creek fics this year, which was ridiculously exciting for me:

Lost to Be Found - 10,000 words of absolutely delightful Milt and Russ post-series friendship that softens the edges in their relationship a little without getting sappy or out of character.

The Big Nap - A fantastically clever little Milt/Russ story that makes use of my one bulletproof AU love by turning Milt into a PI. Kind of.

And a few other things that I've read and enjoyed:

Anne of Green Gables: To Dream of Happiness (Walter/Una, Teen, 2291 words) - A wistful and hopeful written fix-it AU that matches the tone of the canon beautifully.

Blackadder Goes Forth: Private Correspondence (Blackadder/Darling, Teen, 6472 words) - Blackadder, as usual, is scheming to escape the front and running into all sorts of terrible luck in the process. This captures the spirit and the language of the show perfectly, and I literally laughed aloud reading it.

Justified: all our plans and crimes (Gen, Teen, 2082 words) - Loretta gets a letter and a phone from Raylan a few years after the show ends. This is a really nice look at how things could turn out for clever, competent Loretta. It's not the fate I'd wish for for her, it's an entirely plausible one.

Lord Peter Wimsey: Christmas at Duke's Denver (Peter/Harriet, General Audiences, 2501 words) - A sweet and entertaining depiction of Peter and Harriet's first Christmas with Peter's family.
