Recent gifts

Three fic recs!

I was lucky enough to receive not only my gift fic but also a treat in the X-Men Secret Mutant exchange. They're both quite dark, angsty and Magneto-centric, just what I was hoping for. They're also both very powerful, very well-written fics and definitely worth a read. One was This island we cling to by daymarket, and the other Snow in Dusseldorf by Sophia_Bee

Moving on to something a little more light-hearted (but still quite scary in places, actually!) -- the children's series Chrestomanci. For yuletide I got a lovely long fic that would have fitted right into the original series. If by chance anyone on my f-list has heard of Chrestomanci, you'll enjoy this: What Dreams by LookingForOctober.
