orbingarrow: Peter's Got A Gift For Gifts
Tony figures a birthday gift from Peter is inevitable. Few people bother to give Tony anything, because let’s face it– he really is the guy who has everything– but some do, and Peter’s going to be one of them. Thoughtfulness is in the kid’s DNA.

sinope: To Being an Us (For Once)
Clint's been keeping a few things in the dark. Fortunately, it's the season of lights.

(Or: four times that someone used the Avengers to make a statement, and one time that Clint made a statement of his own.)

cimorene: Clean Linen
Claud Darracott isn't looking forward to going home for Christmas: for a Dandy like Claud, there's nothing to do in the country, and on top of that, the Darracotts will be a sorry bunch, because his cousin Richmond, in Paris with Wellington's Army of Occupation, has still not returned. Being trapped by a blizzard at a country inn on the way turns out to be a blessing in disguise, when he meets Felix Hethersett. But inviting Hethersett to the family home seems to have been a mistake: something's afoot there, and whatever it is, with the Darracotts, it's bound to be a mess...

Totally charming Heyer crossover romp (The Unknown Ajax/April Lady).

yahtzee: Xmas in Connecticut
A fusion with the 1940s movie Christmas in Connecticut, wherein Charles and Raven have been secretly co-writing a home advice column by 'Rebecca Lawrence', and their publisher Emma volunteers them to host war hero Erik for Christmas at their nonexistence farmhouse. Funny and sweet, fluffy to the max, with hardly any of the rom-com wince moments I was expecting from all the secret-keeping.

binz & shiplizard: Near Miss
Three years ago, Tony Vargassi died and left his flourishing criminal empire to his son Marco. Gang violence is rife in the streets, but Harry Dresden's concluded, reluctantly, that it isn't his kind of problem. John 'Johnny' Marcone is a mechanic with a bad limp and a bad history with Vargassi. He doesn't want to get back into the business of the Business; he barely escaped with his life before. But in Harry Dresden he sees enough raw power to save the city he loves. Will he risk it all to back his crazy friend against the powers that be?

For once, Lord Peter Wimsey is at a loss. What on earth can a man buy his wife for Christmas that costs under a guinea? Harriet also has a one guinea budget for Peter's present, but she has had the good sense to ask for assistance from Miss Climpson. (And sometimes the best presents are the ones you make yourself.)
