small gifts exchange


Happy 2016! And wrapping up 2015...

A very happy 2016 to everyone! rs_small_gifts is now officially ten years old and still going strong. We had 37 gifts of fic and art from 30 participants, including 9 first-time Small Gifters and at least two of us who've participated ten years in a row. (Who all's been here since the beginning?) We've knitted with Remus and Sirius, made jewelry, solved mysteries, started a radio station, sat by the fire, stolen some sparkling ham, drunk Veritaserum, tracked down gorgeous strangers, studied cryptozoology, baby-sat Harry, baby-sat Teddy and James and Albus Severus and Lily, built blanketforts, reported the news, watched the stars, and, of course, fallen in love, over and over. We've left 650 comments for each other since we first started our discussions in late November.

It's been a blast.

Special thanks go out to everyone who commented on our gifts, keeping fandom interactive and conversational and warm and fun. Thanks also go out to our pinch-hit team of brighty18, llaeyro, and mustntgetmy, who all rose to the occasion brilliantly. And finally, no one manages a fest more effectively than mindabbles and sambethe without whose help Small Gifts wouldn't be possible. (magnetic_pole can't say thanks often enough.)

Enjoy the new year, everyone! May 2016 be filled with fannish fun and friendship.

Bonus art: Tracking Sirius

Title: Tracking Sirius
Author/Artist: magnetic_pole
Recipient: llaeyro
Rating: PG
Contents or warnings (highlight to view): *I am new to technology, and this may be a disaster. I hope not.*
Summary: The Maurauders weren't the only ones with a map. Years ago, Regulus had a map of Grimmauld Place charmed to show him Sirius' whereabouts. It still lies under the bed in his bedroom, and it still tells stories about his big brother. Set at the holidays during OotP.
Notes: llaeyro, thanks for your enthusiasm and your pinch-hit! This gift was inspired by your requests for holiday scenes at Number Twelve as well as your comment that you enjoyed the way the house reflected Sirius. Thanks so much for joining us at Small Gifts this year!

FIC: Reliance for luminousgloom

Title: Reliance
Author: ghosttt
Recipient: luminousgloom
Rating: PG-13
Contents and warnings (highlight to view): * language, sex offscreen, mentions of animal death *
Word Count: 578
Summary: Yukon Territory, 1876. Sirius comes back from a supply run.
Notes: This is a much-later and very brief sequel to my fic Desperado that takes place in that world (but this piece will definitely make sense if you have not read the longer story). I just could not resist it with the prompt "return after a long absence." I've always wanted to write something sappy and sweet in this verse because the original is so bleak and here it is. Thank you for bearing with me luminousgloom et al. Happy New Year!
