I think it's now near enough for these. Here are some Doctor Who Christmas fanfic recs (not including any I recced last year!). I'm sorry if you're already fed up with festivities for any reason, but there is also lovely DW-ishness, too. And cake.

Acquired Taste by [livejournal.com profile] primsong
(All ages, 1473 words, Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton.) This post seems to be full of the fluffiest of Christmas fluff, and here's the first, in which it's Christmas but the Doctor doesn't exactly care for the cake... (And, no this isn't cake!fic in terms of the genre.)

Wait, what, you want actual Christmas cake!fic? Okay:
Just Fruity by [livejournal.com profile] primsong
(All ages, 2611 words, Third Doctor, Brigadier, Sergeant Benton, Tenth Doctor.) You probably know the rules of the cake!fic genre by now: Ten, naked, chained to Three and covered in cake (and possibly also Three's cloak). If you don't know about this important sub-genre of DW fanfic, well... Um... Er...

Christmas in the TARDIS by [livejournal.com profile] calapine
(All ages, 639 words, Fourth Doctor, Romana II). Sweet festive Doctor/Romana fluff.

The Last Christmas by [livejournal.com profile] aralias
(All ages, 2888 words, Fifth Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa, Adric, Ainley!Master). There are so many good things I could say about this fic (which had me grinning pretty much all the way through) but I think mentioning that the Master's latest plan involves dressing up as a store Father Christmas should be sufficient. Because you just know he would, too.

A Winter's Tale by [livejournal.com profile] jjpor
(PG, 8164 words, Seventh Doctor, Ace.) And just before the sugar overload gets a bit much, here's one of my favourite Christmas fics that's a bit more serious. (Well, of course it's a favourite: WWI and Seven and Ace, and written by JJPOR? How could it not be?)

Christmas Cutaway by [livejournal.com profile] calapine
(All ages, 1232 words, Eighth Doctor, Grace Holloway) Perfectly characterised festive fluff.

Nog, Cheer and Awe by dblauvelt
(All ages, 1076 words. Bernice Summerfield, Seventh Doctor) The Doctor tries to cheer Benny up. In a sort of impenetrable, NA Doctorish sort of way, which is excellent.

Things To Do in Leadworth in the Snow by [livejournal.com profile] john_elliott
(All ages, 3716 words, wee!Amelia, Jamie McCrimmon, Samantha Briggs, Second Doctor). Wee!Amelia playing in the snow. With Sam and Jamie. Let's finish as fluffily as we started... Aw.

I thought I'd have a go at using my screencaps from Scrooge (1970) to make some generic Winter/Christmas icons, and also some Yuletide ones. They vary, and are mostly basic, but I think some ended up quite pretty. The credits had some nice illustrations by Ronald Searle.

(or whatever season's greetings you prefer). Since I hope very much not to be around to post after tomorrow, a Christmas recs post:

I'm sure most of these won't be new to people, but, hey it's Christmas, Doctor Who style!

Title: UNIT: The Great Mince Pie Mystery
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 6033
Characters: Colonel Crichton, Sarah Jane Smith, K9, Winifred Bambera, Other

Summary:December 1984: Colonel Crichton is trying to see Sarah Jane and K9 off the premises; elsewhere some vicious little aliens are causing trouble - and they'll eat anything from mince pies to members of staff. It must be Christmas.

A few notes - don't worry, despite being another 1980s UNIT story, it's set earlier and is a standalone bit of nonsense. (For those who have been reading, it does give us the chance to meet another one of the Doctor's successors...)

And since it was set in December 1984 and it seemed wrong not to refer to Band Aid, I... Well, it then seemed good to me to put in references to as many Christmas songs as I could. (Or: It Seemed Funny At The Time).

So, a competition: whoever spots the most songs gets to give me a prompt & I'll write a ficlet or short story over the festive period. Pm me here or via Teaspoon with your answers and prompt and we'll see what happens. (This seems really egotistical, but I think as soon as I say there are refs to songs, some people will look for them & all I can do to make it up to them online is to offer fic. I can't even do icons).

If you want to, pm me by Dec 19th with yr answers & prompt or two &, (given the fact that there won't be a lot of takers), you'll be in with a good chance. Obviously, no adult-rated, graphic prompts (you won't get them and you wouldn't like them if you did) and, sadly, slashy stuff is not my thing either. It doesn't have to be Doctor Who. (I wrote a list of things I will try here, for a meme). I imagine I'd write it rough while I'm home and type it up after I get back, so it would appear around New Year. No one will know who won till then. Most of the quotes/refs are so obvious I might as well have hung tinsel round them, but some are more obscure. Count this 'comp' as my apology. (Christmas stories should be more dark night, candlelight and starlight and hope, but I fail yet again.)

It's an offer and if no one does pm I shall pretend someone does and I'm emailing the fic to them, la la la.

Usual disclaimer: This has not been okayed on to Teaspoon yet. If it doesn't appear, I'll look even sillier.

I wrote a Christmas story!  From a randomiser prompt, which gave me First Doctor/Tegan + Shopping.  What else could I do?
