Betas: Comment with your LJ name, best way to contact you, and a brief description of what you can read. PLEASE provide a reliable method of contact, so that you don't miss any requests from authors and can reply as soon as possible to let them know your availability (or lack of).

Authors: You can post a request for a beta here or get in touch directly with a beta, BUT please be careful of saying anything that will give away your recipient's identity / gift!

2015 Master List

Before I present the 41 beautiful gifts bestowed this year, let me say a big thank you to everyone who participated, who jumped in with enthusiasm and helped launch another chapter of the secret santa exchange. A special shout out to our pinch hitters for their mad talent and generous spirit. Thank you also for the kind words of support and helpful suggestions sent my way. I'm already thinking toward the end of this year and how to improve this experience for all.

Now, without further delay, here are the stories from this year's exchange! Go read and delight in new fantastic tales ♥ And--if you haven't done so yet--please take a moment to acknowledge and thank your secret santa for their time and effort.

If you notice any errors in the coding below, drop me a note and I'll get it fixed asap.

To Stand Alone for Dorothyoz1939 - PG-13

Title: To Stand Alone
Author: icarusancalion
Recipient: dorothyoz1939 (first of two)
Pairing: John/Peter Grodin Friendship
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~6K
Warnings: none
Author's Notes: Set during Letters From Pegasus and The Siege: Part I, veering slightly from there. Dorothyoz1939, this isn't your story. I mean, it is, but isn't. It's the prequel to your story, the set-up for the world for your story. It's complicated ... uh, see, there was this car accident, and it was totaled, and then I was on crutches, and with work, and grad school, I had these two different prompts for two different SGA Secret Santa authors... and they somehow all combined into one story-? So that's this story. But your Sheppard/Cam is connected to this world, and in the works. (Thank you to Sian for the beta reading. You helped more than you realize.)
Summary: The siege of Atlantis has an unlikely, unassuming hero.
