So, it is almost the New Year and therefore, almost Yuletide reveals. I wanted to get a few recs in before those happen. Not as many this year, not so much because the fic has been bad -- the fic has been awesome -- more because I've been lazy lol.

Lucrezia Borgia/Giulia Farnese. This paring is REALLY growing on me and this story is beautifully in character. The concept of telling this story -- as historical documents and analysis of them, is intriguing and skillfully done!

I like the Genei's POV and how some of the events in history are explained in this story. And there's this cool post-apocalypse theory too!

The worldbuilding in this piece is amazing. It's actually a pretty dark story but there's hope in there too. Beautifully written.

Another one of those great worldbuilding fics. Also dark, but with some hope. And the characters are wonderful too!

Philip II of Spain/Elizabeth I of England. A tender, romantic story of something pretty hopeless but still beautiful.
