Friday fics — Yuletide treasures

I figured that I would save all my Yuletide fic reading for the proper day instead of trying to put link posts together as I was going along, since I was busy enough trying to get in all my reading, commenting, and bookmarking before reveal. Plus, this way my post actually has author names in it!

Here, then, are sixty-three recs in forty-three fandoms.

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Additional Tags: Yuletide Treat, Yuletide 2013, Misses Clause Challenge
Summary:

No one who saw Catherine Moreland as a little girl could have supposed she was to be a heroine.

Fortunately, she'd discovered the wonder that was teen romances. Fortunately, she'd read Twilight.

Really fun. I think the Twilight analogy works beautifully, as it is full worthy of much mockery, but also worth defending against certain misogynist and fun-hating critiques, the same way Austen mocks Gothic novels but defends novel-readers.

Hook should, perhaps, have died in England and awoken in Hell. Instead, he died in Neverland and awoke in the trenches of 1916 France. 

While trying to aid the boys of England, Wendy Darling found herself confronted with a man who had lost his right hand, his past, and his ability to dream.

I love the way this story maintains the tone of the original, while following it to some rather different places.
