There may be more later, but this is a pretty decent first round.

(If you are, for some reason, going “Yuletide?”, it is an annual exchange of fiction in small fandoms. The stories are released on December 25th, and the authors are not revealed until January 1st, which gives you plenty of time to read and comment and so on without getting caught up in who wrote what. This year, there’s something like 2500 stories, of all sorts of kinds.)

What I wrote:
Not only did my recipient love it, but her favorite paragraph was the one that has my favorite sentence in it. I am so smug! (Much thanks to the friends who gave me advice, which I’ll talk about more when we get to reveals, because it’s the first fic writing I’ve shared with anyone else in more than a decade. Ritual writing, yes. Non-fiction, yes. All sorts of other commentary, yes. Fiction, no.)

My gift:
I got Chalion fic! It makes me deeply happy, because it has lots of awesome bits, and Iselle and Bergon after their marriage, and small mysteries solved improving the world. You can see it at http://archiveofourown.org/works/300197
