Master List for 2016

Yes, you read that right: 2016. We're still wrapping up last year as we get ready for Small Gifts 2017.

Your mods apologize. We were on the verge of finishing up last January when 2017 appeared in full force and, Dementor-like, sucked all the joy out of life. (I started off joking here, but honestly, 2017 has had some very Dementor-like qualities: political chaos, natural disasters, and tragedies large and small in the news almost every day. We hope you're safe out there. Someone teach us how to cast a Patronus charm!)

But we're back this year, now posting primarily on Dreamwidth, and stronger than ever. Last year's master list appears below. Forgive us for being late!

Your mods,
Maggie and Min

2016 by the numbers: we had 36 participants and 41 gifts ranging from 350 to 26,000 words in length. One quarter of these gifts were art or art-plus-fic. Most importantly, because one of the best things about Small Gifts has always been its sense of community, we left 847 comments for each other.

As always, we made our best efforts to get the master list right, but if you find typos or mistakes, we'd warmly welcome the correction.

Enjoy last year's party? Come join us again! Sign-ups for Small Gifts 2017 are still going on. They'll end as claiming begins this Saturday, October 21, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. (That’s 8:00 a.m. in Los Angeles, 10:00 in Mexico City, 4:00 p.m. in London, 5:00 in Berlin, 7:00 in Dubai, and 11:00 p.m. in Shanghai. Australia-Pacific folks, send us an e-mail, and we'll help you out.)

Belated Bonus Ficlet/Art: A Match Made on Witter (In Nine Weets)

Title: A Match Made on Witter (In Nine Weets)
Rating: Work-safe
Contents or warnings (highlight to view): *None, unless my dubious grasp of Twitter will spoil your fun*
Summary: It's 2007. Sirius is single, but he's got a fancy new mobile, and he's back on the market again after another failed relationship. Arthur Weasley keeps telling him how this new wizarding app Witter is going to revolutionize the wizarding world. Surely it can help him reconnect with that handsome werewolf from MuggleCon, right? (AU in which Voldemort never existed and Remus never attended Hogwarts.)
Notes: Thank you so much for pinch-hitting for us during the 2016-2017 round of Small Gifts,! I'm sorry this is the fest's most belated bonus gift EVER. This bit of silliness was inspired by a prompt you left here two years ago: "They met at a holiday party, but forgot to exchange anything but their names, and now don’t know how to find one another." Sorry the holiday party didn't make it--I just loved the idea of Remus and Sirius being fannish about Muggle culture and enjoying their Muggle technology.

Help connect a smitten wizard!Collapse )

An Apology and an Announcement!


“Hmm?” Sirius asks, not looking up from his book. He’s been puzzling over an enchantment he came across when he and James tracked down Flint and Parkinson last week. He’s nearly come to the conclusion that it’s something they – well, Parkinson – invented. Flint couldn’t come up with an original spell if his life depended on it.

“Can you look at me?” Remus asks, somewhat plaintively. Sirius marks his page and looks up. Remus eyes him through his over-long fringe. He needs a haircut. He’s pulled off his robes and he’s in just his trousers and a white shirt, the sleeves rolled up to show his forearms. He looks a little rumpled and a lot pathetic. Sirius wants to eat him whole.

“Oh,” Sirius says. “Have I not been looking at you?”

It’s not like Remus to be needy. Correction, it’s very like Moony to be needy – it’s not like him to show it in any obvious way. If he’s going to exact any benefit from Moony’s apparent guilt, he needs not push too hard.

“Sirius,” Remus says, stepping closer. “I am sorry.”

“I’m listening,” says Sirius, looking away from Remus’ pleading face. He’s just this side of giving in and pulling Remus into his lap. That won’t do at all.

“It – well,” Remus stammers. He looks so delightfully desperate. Sirius feels the beginnings of desire stir. “I had every intention…”

Sirius schools his face into an expression of cautious interest and nods. He’s sure some part of Remus knows he’s taking the piss a bit, but his feelings were hurt and he’s not ready to let Remus out of having to squirm.

“I had planned to…and then,” Remus continues to stammer. “Well, I was going to be only a bit late with it, but the later it got, well, the more perfect it had to be. It was meant to be the best Christmas ever and what with one thing and another, and then it was February, and then, May, and then, well…”

“And now?” Sirius asks. This contrite Remus is unbearably delicious.

“So, er, happy… ” Remus says, raising his eyebrows until they nearly disappear under his fringe. “Equinox?”

“You’re even late for that,” says Sirius, noticing for the first time that Remus seems to have something in his hand.

“All right, then,” Remus says. The beginnings of a twinkle in his eye tells Sirius that he may have caught up that Sirius isn't completely furious anymore. “Shall we leave it at happy early Christmas? I reckon that I’m so late that I’ve worked my way around to be early again.”

“Your logic stuns me,” Sirius says. “What’s in your hand?”

“Can we try again? Can we have presents and lights and sweets and all of it?” Remus asks. He begins to extend his hand and Sirius grabs his wrist and encircles the warm, soft skin with his fingers. “Padfoot?”

Remus finally opens his hand and there, on his palm, is a very small box wrapped in gold paper with a tiny scarlet bow.

Sirius reaches out and takes the little box. “And you can hang up this early Christmas rubbish,” Sirius says, trying unsuccessfully to glare at Remus as he surreptitiously gives the box a shake. “That implies that this very small gift is also my present for this year and that's not on.”

“I would never. You’ll see,” Remus says, smiling that very Moony smile that means he’s up to something. Sirius decides at that moment that (in the spirit of the coming holidays, reconciliation, and new beginnings) complete forgiveness is really the best course of action.


Like Remus, we are very sorry for our delinquency. Also like Remus, we have plans. And we know that you, like Sirius, are very good-looking, charming, clever, and forgiving.

So, we are pleased to announce that rs_small_gifts will be back again this year for our twelfth year and that the final two bonus gifts and masterlist from last year will be up very soon.

Look for sign up information and posts coming your way. Sign ups will begin on October 7! We hope you will join us for another year of holiday cheer, Remus/Sirius style!
