yuletide recs, aka mostly a giant dose of childhood nostalgia

I am slightly under the weather (along with nearly everyone I know). I am kinda crabby and I don't even feel like watching old gymnastics meets, which is generally my drug of choice when I'm sick. But here! Have some recs from this year's Yuletide that I bookmarked last week when I read them. I'm being lazy and posting them without "here is why you should read this" commentary because, well, I'm sick and crabby. *g*

In no particular order:

Romantic Notions (2845 words) by Sanj. The Outlaws of Sherwood - Robin McKinley; Teen; Cecily of Norwell/Little John. Five lessons Cecily learns the hard way.

Two Rabbits Side By Side (3328 words) by wei. Mulan; All Ages; Fa Mulan. Mulan emerged from Tung Show pass unexposed. AU, slight melding with the Ballad of Mulan, vaguely Mulan/Shang.

all the stars align (2024 words) by rubiconjane. Anne of Green Gables; All Ages; Gilbert Blythe/Anne Shirley, Diana Barry. Gilbert never called Anne “Carrots”, and she never broke the slate over his head. (aka a canon-divergent “what-if” story, told through five snapshots.).

I've Decided To Marry You (678 words) by chicafrom3. In the Heights - Miranda; Usnavi/Vanessa; Teen. At thirteen, Vanessa planned out her wedding down to the last detail.

Searching For Snow (1023 words) by katayla. Betsy-Tacy Series - Maud Hart Lovelace; All Ages; Betsy Ray, Tacy Kelly, Tib Muller. If the snow won't come to Betsy and Tacy and Tib, they'll go to it.

Self-Evident (2199 words) by Queue. Austin & Murry-O'Keefe Families - Madeleine L'Engle; All Ages; Meg Murry | Meg O'Keefe. Meg over time.

The Story Club is Discovered (1112 words) by Anonymous. Anne of Green Gables - L. M. Montgomery; All Ages; Gilbert Blythe/Anne Shirley. Author doesn't include a summary, but basically, what it says on the tin.
