I won the lottery this year and got three fantastic gifts, all exactly tailored to my desires, in three different fandoms.
Duty of Care (5069 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Molly (Rivers of London) & Thomas Nightingale
Characters: Molly (Rivers of London), Thomas Nightingale, Peter Grant (Rivers of London)
Additional Tags: Backstory, World War II, Mail Order Catalogs, Duty of Care, Friendship, Spoilers for Foxglove Summer, Yuletide
There is a reason that Molly guards the Folly.Bookmarker's Notes:
Molly-POV! The dark hints about her back-story, the long quiet years in which she and the Nightingale were the sole inhabitants of the Folly, her vicious protectiveness of the places and people she has made her own - perfection! Check it out!
Red Phosphorus (1513 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: 221B Baker Towers
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/James Moriarty
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, James Moriarty
Additional Tags: Unhealthy Relationships, Complicated Relationships, Bloodplay, Knifeplay, Break Up
They have their own history.Bookmarker's Notes:
No canon knowledge required. The author's language transported me to the heart of today's London, where Moriarty is building his empire and Sherlock, a brilliant dark-skinned boy with nothing to lose, has tracked him down to demand a place at his side and in his bed.
The Gravity of Stars (7663 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: The Expanse (TV)
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Drummer/Naomi Nagata
Characters: Drummer (The Expanse), Naomi Nagata
Additional Tags: Yuletide Treat, Femslash Festivus, Misses Clause Challenge
Camina Drummer has her principles, her code and her commitment to the Belt. But she’s tired, and she’s angry, and she wants Naomi so badly.
Drummer, from Ceres to the Behemoth, and after.Bookmarker's Notes:
An outstanding character study of Camina Drummer in all her pessimistic, determined, Belter glory. The Camina/Naomi is very hot and achingly in-character.
