The Shoemaker by fleete (NC-17)
Historical magical AU. In turn-of-the-century Glastonbury, Freya Lake is the headmistress of an orphanage for magical children. And despite all the seers’ dire warnings, Freya is happy; her infatuation with the shoemaker’s apprentice—who may or may not be a girl underneath his shirt and trousers—is slowly coming to a head. But then a woman claiming to be Morgan Le Fay shows up on the orphanage steps, demanding to see Emrys, and Freya is forced to rearrange her priorities.

That’s kind of what it’s like when he first really sees Ryan. He knows Ryan’s worn down in places and just plain defeated at times, but he also can see how well the two of them could fit together.

In the Beginning…
One of my favorite subgenres within the MFU fandom is the classic “how they met” story. The TV show began with Illya and Napoleon already teamed up so the exact details of how the two first came to be partners is prime fodder for many authors’ imaginations.

Holiday Mini Recs
A holiday-appropriate story from SGA and two from Harry Potter.

Here's Looking At You (HP): Some Muggle inventions aren't all that useless for wizards after all – or so Minister Shacklebolt claims. His Muggleborn employees suspect that the real reason behind his sudden enthusiasm for magi-technical innovation at the Ministry is the fact that he found out about internet porn, but that isn't terribly relevant for the following story…

Arctic Drift (SGA): penguin!fic: "Tell me we didn't just adopt an egg." It shouldn't have been possible, but John sounded intrigued and irritated at the same time.

Unavoidably Detained (HP): They're about to be late for an engagement. Very late.
