This is the first time I've actually managed to put together a recs post for Yuletide, the annual small fandom fanfic gift exchange, and I haven't managed to read nearly as many fics as I'd like to yet, but here are some of the fanfics I've most enjoyed so far this year -- most of them are in anime and manga, with a sprinkling of book fandoms and western animation.

First of all, the two fics I received as gifts, which I absolutely loved to pieces.

"A City Wide, Blue" (Vampire Hunter D)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/140138
D seeks shelter for himself and a young girl in the city of half-breed monsters to which he brought destruction many years ago. A heartbreaking look into the heart of someone who, over the lonely centuries, has tried and failed to turn that heart to stone. Saying much more than that will give too much away. If you've seen either of the Vampire Hunter D anime films, this is a must read, and I count it as one of the very best fics in the fandom.

"Dreamtime" (Noein)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/144335
It seems like hardly anyone's seen the anime Noein despite it having aired on the Sci-fi Channel at some point, but now that it's available on Netflix streaming, I hope more people will watch it... and that subsequently they'll go and read this fic, because it's incredibly poignant. It focuses on Isami and Yuu's friendship, and on how they become the quantum warriors Fukurou and Karasu after they lose the women they love. First slash in the (minuscule) English-language side of the fandom, I believe, and it's touching both in and of itself and because the story makes a point of not sidelining the women in their lives. Really great stuff.

And now for a few more:

"Deserving" (Pet Shop of Horrors)
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2010/works/138467
While looking for Count D, Leon breaks up a puppy mill and finds himself responsible for a bajillion labrador retrievers. Adorable, funny, and snappily written, and so true to both the canon characters and dog behavior.

"Ten Things that Happened Because of the Rain" (Samurai Champloo)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/143013
A lovely series of vignettes about Jin and Shino, my favorite couple from Samurai Champloo in what may be my favorite episode.

"in the beginning" (Higashi no Eden/Eden of the East)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/142355
This is how I wish the series had ended. Perfectly captures Takizawa's charm and restless energy, and Saki's hope and faith, and both of their desires to make the world a better place.

"An Unexpected Present" (War for the Oaks by Emma Bull)
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2010/works/140117 Eddi and the Phouka trim the tree. Sweet, romantic, and magical even without any overt magic, with dialogue that could have come from the novel itself.

"The Definition of a Path" (Sunshine by Robin McKinley)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/141433
Sunshine and Constantine enjoy a night out on the town that solidifies the nature of their relationship. Captures Sunshine's voice very well, and I *heart* these two together.

"Tales of the Bathhouse" (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi/Spirited Away)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/140455
Tales of bathhouse inhabitants we have come to know, plus a couple of new additions. Very true to the spirit of the film, and to the spirit of fairy tales.

"Shades of Bittersweet" (Disney's Beauty and the Beast)
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2010/works/142158
What if Belle had married Gaston to set her father free? Haunting and beatifully written, but keep your tissues handy, and maybe a copy of the movie to cheer yourself up afterward.

"Hang" (Witch Hunter Robin)
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2010/works/140382
A lovely coda to the series that really gets into Amon and Robin's relationship, and all the contradictions and complications in his feelings for her.

"Lance Blanc in Vampire Lust IV: Eternal Bone" (Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/144698
Set during the time period when Thomas was crashing on Harry's couch, Harry finds out about Thomas's contributions to the family business. I laughed so hard at this I thought I'd die.

"Soldiering On" (Fringe)
http://archiveofourown.org/works/144749
Peter's meditations on the show's recent events. It really feels like him.

Title: One for Sorrow, Two for Joy

Pairings: Karasu/Haruka, sortakinda? (in whatever weird way it is that I ship them, anyway)
Genre: angst, friendship
Rating: PG

Summary: Getting Karasu to come out of the rain is easy compared to figuring out what to do with him afterward.

I haven't been on LJ/DW too much, mostly because of work projects, but also because I've been hip deep in my new fandom, the science fiction anime Noein. (Also known as Noein: Mō Hitori no Kimi e or Noein: To Your Other Self.) I've been sketching and writing like crazy and have finally produced a fic:

Title: Close
Word Count: 1,779
Pairings: Karasu/Haruka, sortakinda?
Genre: hurt/comfort
Rating: PG-13

Summary: While Karasu is out fighting, Haruka waits for him to return to the house.

Notes: I will just be completely honest and say that I really don't know how to label this fic, at all. If you have questions or concerns, shoot me an e-mail.
