This year I recieved three lovely fics:
The first is in the Pumpkin Scissors fandom. Pumpkin Scissors is an anime and manga about soldiers trying to help people rebuild after a war.
Tidings of Comfort and Joy
This is an adorable fic with excellent characterization. It's a gen fic, but you can see a bit of Alice/Randel in it too. (Or maybe I just see that everywhere.) I was so glad to recieve it.
The second two are "Yuletide treats" and are both by the same author (still anonymous, but they said they wrote both in their notes). They're in the Yume Kira Dream Shoppe fandom. Yume Kira Dream Shoppe is a cute one-shot manga which has been described as "If Pet Shop of Horrors were sweet and fluffy."
A little follow-up to one of the chapters of the manga, showing some of the future of one of the customers of the Dream Shoppe.
Lovely world-building based on Japanese legend. And a romance, but I won't spoil the surprises for you.
