    Festive Fic Recommendations

    Let's start compiling a list of our favourite holiday-themed fics!

    I'm always in search of a good festive fic at this time of year so let's get reccing.

    They don't need to be about Christmas, just set at this time of year or involving other religious/cultural celebrations at this time of year too. Even if it's New Year themed, let's rec it!

    Use the form below and post in this thread.

    This will also help us a lot when we're posting holiday fic recommendations on our MNFF Tumblr!

    Recommendation form:

    PHP Code:
    [b]Title/link:[/b]

    b]Why it's a great read:[/b] (optional) 
    Please put multiple recommendations in one post rather than a separate post for each recommendation. If someone else has posted since your last post, you can put additional recommendations in a new post. TLDR - please don't post five different recs in five consecutive posts etc!

    I was looking for Christmas-themed stories, but it wasn't easy to find them out of all the stories we have. I vaguely recall that there was a suggestion, some years back, about tagging Christmas theme stories somehow so that they could be easily sorted out into a list when desired. Maybe I should just keep my own list, added to over the course of the year as I stumble across these stories, so as to have them when needed.

    I remember when it was suggested we have a Holiday tag for fics. Unfortunately that wouldn't help us find all the older festive fics which is why I was hoping to compile a masterlist here! As you come across them, post them in here

    Title/Link: Snape's Christmas Carol
    Author: Sonorus
    Category: General
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st-2nd Years/None
    Summary: A little bit of fun for the Christmas season!
    Severus Snape is a miserable, grumpy, nasty man, feared or loathed by all around him. But can the appearance of a succession of familiar ghosts one Christmas convince him to mend his ways?
    Based on the classic story by Charles Dickens. Lightly comic with serious parts. AU warning as Snape has survived the Battle of Hogwarts.
    Why it's a great read: A masterful retelling of the well-loved tale, using the characters and milieu of Hogwarts. Clever, polished, just the right amount of humor while respectful of the spirit of the original. Wish I'd written it.


    Title/Link: Nutcracker
    Author: glomper_of_harry
    Category:Harry/Other Character
    Ratings/Warnings: 1st-2nd Years/None
    Summary: A Christmas fic, adapting the Nutcracker to Harry Potter. A mite odd, but has lovely Christmas HarryxLuna goodness.
    Why it's a great read: A story from 12/30/04. The author has deleted her other stories, but saved this one. It's easy to see why. A beautiful, gentle, insightful adaptation of the familiar story, with Luna in the role of Clara, but using the milieu and characters of Hogwarts. Luna/Clara is depicted so well. You will enjoy it, for sure.
