I've been toodling around in the Yuletide archive for a few days now and have come up with some favorites. Maybe there will be more! I hope so, actually, as there are literally thousands of stories; I have been picking the ones I read by following the winds of circumstance and mood and it is not at all methodical. Here are some I think you should read:

Reconaissance (1000 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Imperial Radch Series - Ann Leckie
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Gem of Sphene, Justice of Toren One Esk Nineteen | Breq, Kalr Five | Ettan, Translator Zeiat
Summary: There was a plan: to locate the AI cores before the Usurper could, to return to Ship and form a plan to retrieve them. I was to succeed, or I was to die. Bodies are precious, now, but not so precious Ship could not afford to lose one segment, in pursuit of something this important.

I feel extremely lucky to say that this is my gift! It's about Sphene, and it's poignant and careful and feels very true to the series. It's exactly one thousand words long, and somehow I admire this about it; it is one of the most economical Yuletide stories I've ever read, and gives everyone their due through the eyes of a very old, very reserved, very untrusting narrator.


Seven more! Jeeves & Wooster, Northern Exposure, Weekend Update, Grantchester, Watchmaker of Filigree Street, Emily Post's Etiquette, Aubrey-Maturin )
