Ten recs in ten fandoms: Decoys (2004), Hockey RPF, Nero Wolfe (Rex Stout), Non je ne regrette rien (Edith Piaf - Song), Persuasion (Jane Austen), Princess Bride, Protector of the Small (Tamora Pierce), The Sound of Music, Top Chef RPF/Unusual Dragon Hoards, and Unusual Dragon Hoards.

Additional Tags: Xeno, Mpreg, Hurt/Comfort, Romance, Canadian Shack, Happy Ending, Minor Character Death, Vomiting, Body Horror
Summary:

Maybe Roger hadn’t had sex before, but he still had ideas about the morning after. None of them included running for the hills with his alien girlfriend, much less being pregnant with her alien babies.


  • This fic is fun, sweet, romantic, and has a lot of great lines. Yes, even though the main character is about to barf up ice alien-tentacle babies. It works.

PK and Carey wake up temporarily soulbonded, and that's not even the weirdest thing that happens all week.

(Contains soulbonding, sex pollen, and being trapped in an elevator -- uh, I heard you liked tropes, so I put some tropes in your tropes! Also includes mention of an open relationship, which I will explain more spoiler-ily in the end notes for people with concerns.)

This is a Yuletide treat!
