I forgot to do a round-up of the Yuletide fics I wrote:

Snow White and Rose Red (What Katy Did | Clover/Rose Red)
"O, my luve is like a red, red rose/That's newly sprung in June." Clover and Rose Red are living a dream.

Spider's Web (Greco-Roman mythology | Odysseus/Penelope)
Odysseus thinks that it was all his own idea. Penelope knows better.

Adore Our Own Athena (The Odyssey | Odysseus/Penelope, implied Odysseus/Athena/Penelope)
Penelope takes comfort in religion. Athena fulfils her promises.

call no man happy until he is dead (Count Cain | gen, implied Riff/Cain)
At this moment, Cain is happy.

The Truth of Others (A Song of Ice and Fire | Rhaegar/Lyanna)
All people know about Rhaegar and Lyanna is what suits their purposes.

The Cub's First Cub (Devil's Cub | Vidal/Mary)
Vidal awaited the birth of his first child with characteristic patience; that is to say, none.

Some Justice (Discworld - Night Watch | Carcer, Death)
A long drop and a short stop and Carcer's always got a plan. Pity it doesn't work.

Cry for Yesterday (The Chronicles of Narnia | Lucy, Edmund, Susan, Peter)
Susan finds it hard to cope with normal life. Lucy just doesn't want to.

A Splendid Orgy (Venetia | Damerel/Venetia)
The aftermath of a frankly magnificent orgy.

Something Less Than Ideal (Arthurian legend | Galahad, implied pairings)
Galahad's vow of chastity doesn't stop him wanting. Even if he wants to.

do not take thy flight (Emily of New Moon | Dean/Emily)
During their engagement, Dean is free to indulge in some adoration.

Claustrophobia (Swordspoint | Alec/Richard)
After the events of Swordspoint, Alec lies awake.

Mistletoe and Wine (Eight Days of Luke | Luke/David)
Luke comes home for Christmas.

the physicians of a mind diseased (The Secret History | Francis, Francis/Charles)
Francis loves words. He just wishes they worked for him.

Like David and Jonathan (The Bible - Old Testament | David/Jonathan)
"Like David and Jonathan". But what does that actually mean?

Turnabout (Chrestomanci - The Lives of Christopher Chant | Rosalie/Mordecai)
During TLoCC, Rosalie and Mordecai have a short, but quite important, conversation.

The Time For Parting Come (Chrestomanci - The Lives of Christopher Chant | Millie/Christopher)
Millie is going away to school again. Christopher sulks.

Duologue For Would-Be Lovers (Shakespeare - Romeo and Juliet | Romeo/Mercutio)
Romeo pines. Mercutio taunts him, to his own ultimate detriment.

The Wandering Jamie (The Homeward Bounders | Jamie, implied Jamie/Helen)
Jamie moves on.

Persuasion (The Prisoner of Zenda | Rupert of Hentzau/Count of Luzau-Rischenheim)
The Count of Luzau-Rischenheim, I am sorry to say, was entirely under Rupert's thumb.

Out of Narnia (The Chronicles of Narnia | Lucy)
Lucy, not feeling very valiant at all.
