I still have, uh, several dozen fics I meant to reread for possible recommendation (some of which, on looking at my list, almost certainly will be recommended, arrgh), but if these recs don't get done tonight they won't get done before this year's reveals. Still, 77 is a quite respectable number even if I didn't read as widely as I usually do!

As always, I dumped everything I might theoretically want to read into Evernote before reveals, so these were all read with "anonymous" still as the author. They are organized into multiple posts by type of source, with cut-tags and section headings, to reduce tl;dr. Also I have proofread this as carefully as I can but my eyes are literally crossing from fatigue, so apologies if I missed a coding error or typo.

Here are the books recs!

12 Dancing Princesses; Aaronvitch, Rivers of London )

Addison, The Goblin Emperor )

Bradbury, 'There Will Come Soft Rains'; Bujold, Vorkosigan )

Cho, Sorceror to the Crown; Oliphant, Miss Marjoribanks; Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell; Eliot, Murder in the Cathedral; Leckie, Imperial Radch )

Madame C- C-, The Comfortable Courtesan; McKinley, Damar; Novik, Uprooted )

O'Brian, Aubrey-Maturin; Sayers, Wimsey/Vane; Stevermer, When the King Comes Home; Virgil, The Aenid; Wells, The Element of Fire )

Okay, two more posts. Let's go.

More Yuletide recs! Let's start with movies & TV.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine; Hellboy; Inside Out; Sesame Street )

And now things that are crossovers or draw from multiple versions of canon.

The Martian )

2001; Shawshank Redemption; This American Life + HP, Narnia, Captain America )

Okay, now let's squeeze in the recs for which you don't need canon.

'The Arrival' (painting); 'Expert Judgment on Markers to Deter Inadvertent Human Intrusion into the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant'; Two Monks )

See also: win me, win me, an ye will, discussed under books/Cho; and So Sick of That Same Old Love (3562 words) by Iphys, discussed under books/Virgil.

One more!

And finally, music & musicals, webcomics, and games.

'Birdhouse in Your Soul'; Check, Please!; Fallen London/Sunless Sea; Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage )

And again I break alphabetical order to keep a great wodge of recs together.
