Lots and lots of recs!

Most of these are super short--which is one of the things I love about Chocolate Box, all those bite-size morsels of yummy. What people do with characterization and language in so very few words will always awe me and make me giddy. These aren't all the ones worth reading (I still have a lot to read, I was just starting to burn out and that's really not fair to the fics I was reading, so I'm taking a break.) But here's what I've read and loved so far.


First are my gifts that were just all sorts of lovely:
