Friday fics — tricksters and other enigmas

Je ne suis pas un cadeau et mes cadeaux encore moins (449 words) by Nelja
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Norse Religion & Lore
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Loki/Sigyn, Frigg/Óðinn | Frigg/Odin, Loki & Óðinn | Loki & Odin
Characters: Loki (Norse Religion & Lore), Óðinn | Odin, Sigyn (Norse Religion & Lore), Frigg | Frigga
Additional Tags: Humor, Gift Giving, Worst at Friendship
Summary:

Odin et Loki s'interrogent : qu'offrir à l'autre pour le nouvel an ? Il faut que ce soit le pire cadeau de l'histoire des cadeaux. Leur honneur est en jeu !

Norse Mythology was always a rare fandom, but now you have to craft increasingly-arcane queries to confirm just how little non-Marvel fic there actually is. And then sometimes it's in French. Luckily, I read French!


Learning Russian (1210 words) by perevision
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: William Wilcox/Amedeo Kaplan, Jake Kaplan/;)
Characters: William Wilcox, Amedeo Kaplan, Jake Kaplan
Additional Tags: Books, E.L. Konigsburg
Summary:

Several years later, Amedeo no longer feels like a member of Aloners Anonymous, but he still hears the double exclamation points when he thinks William Wilcox's name.

I love this book so much—it's one of my favorite Konigsburgs, and she was one of my favorite authors, ever. There should be more fic for it, but as there's only the one, luckily it's delightful.


When Wart met the Doctor (1470 words) by SansSerif
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Doctor Who, Once and Future King series - T. H. White
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: The Doctor (Doctor Who), Arthur Pendragon, Wart, Pellinore (Arthurian), Merlyn
Additional Tags: Sword in the Stone, Christmas, Feast, Questing, dragon - Freeform, Acting, Forest Sauvage
Summary:

“It was Christmas night and the proper things had been done. … There had been mummers to play an exciting dramatic presentation of a story in which St. George and a Saracen and a funny Doctor did surprising things…” — TH White’s Sword in the Stone c.1939

I don't know the classic Doctors well enough to work out which one I think this is! Perfect idea for a crossover, though.


the beatings will continue until morale improves (1621 words) by astolat
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson
Additional Tags: Spanking, BDSM, First Time, 3x01-The Empty Hearse
Summary:

"This is why you didn't tell me, isn't it," John said.

So I actually really hate it when people slap and/or punch each other, especially if it's played for laughs, unless one or more parties are deriving sexual gratification from it, in which case I love it, so this is, like, fix-it fic for me.
