So, I put this together in December after Yuletide went live but then a ton of stuff happened and I never got to actually writing out my comments/posting it. I'm getting to this now, though, because I love all of these fics and they deserve recs!
FIrst, I want to talk about my own gifts because they were incredible! I was sooo lucky this year, guys! I got TWO gifts for my Historical RPF request <3
May You Find Some Comfort Here by bofoddity is a an adorable bit of hurt/comfort in which young Karl Peter, Duke of Holstein-Gottorp (later Peter III of Russia) sneaks into the rooms of his chamberlain during a storm. They're both still very young, just budding into their teenage years and everything that happens here is completely platonic but also absolutely snuggly and sweet <3
sine qua non by misura is basically a non-explicit love triangle of Andrei Gudovich/Peter III/Christian von Brockdorff. But no, no none of that over-dramatic angst love trios tend to bring. This is a short and sharp piece full of posturing and banter and spot-on characterization of basically everyone involved. Misura's style is, as always, light and poignant and delightful. I've re-read this so many times, tbh, and I even feel like you don't need to be very well versed in who these people are toe enjoy their interactions here because they just jump off the page and speak for themselves.
Here are the rest of my recs. There's slash, femslash, het and gen. Rating vary. Please check headers/tags for warnings before reading.
