I do love exchanges - they make this time of year at lot of fun, not to mention the huge mountains of fic they generate for us all to enjoy... I still have all of Yuletide and lewis_challenge
's Lewis Secret Santa to explore, and Snupin Secret Santa
is still posting too.
I want to particularly encourage people to check out the fic and podfic made for me, all of which come heartily recommended.Due South Seekrit SantaWhy I Lied to You
by Queue. This is a long (impressively long!) podfic of one of my own DS stories. I only started listening to podfic this year, and this one is particularly well read, in a great dramatic voice. Holmes/Watson (ACD)
I doubt tweedisgood
needs any introduction for H/W people on my f-list, and I rather felt like I hit the jackpot this year, with two fics and a podfic. The fics were Jubilee
, in her inimitable witty style, and Fair Hearts of Finest Glow
that rare thing I'm always looking for: great case fic and realism with a dash of slash. And the podfic
too, of my own Wintry Morning, Victoria Station
! Another great reading... I feel like starting to listen to podfic was one of the best things I did in 2013 :)Wilby Wonderful
As part of Yuletide I got With You on the Beach of the Sea
, a beautiful, extraordinarily well-written Duck/Dan story.
And while I'm on the subject of WW, I want to rec another Duck/Dan fic by desireearmfeldt
, The Right Place At The Right Time
. Another brilliant fic, this time re-imagining the events of the film. [My rather tenuous connection to this fic was just providing the prompt :) ]
