First round of Yuletide 2012 recs

For everyone who celebrated, I hope you had a wonderful holiday. :) Ours was quiet and actually pretty darn good. Things are different this year obviously, which somehow turned into one of the more intimate Christmases we've ever had. For the first time ever, we did Christmas dinner as a communal effort, and I have to say I loved it. And not just because it meant I had help, lol. Lots of gifts went around, but in between stuff, I got online and did some reading to relax. Yay for yuletide!

I've only done one pass through, picking out fandoms I know and care about. These are my recs based on that first pass. I might end up going through and reading other stuff, but it's hard to muster caring about stories in worlds I don't know.


If You Hit It Right, That is Heaven (3733 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: A League of Their Own (1992)

Summary: It's 2015, and Marty McFly is unemployed with two kids in jail and still bitter about a thirty year old car accident. But this hasn't really happened yet, and if it hasn't happened yet, there's no risk of creating an alternate timeline.

A Yuletide treat for spoilers, who wanted to see the future of the 80's or what happened after one of Marty's trips.
Notes: Yuletide 2012 rec - love the explanations and Doc's POV
