In TLS, we have been reading the entries for the Beneath the Mistletoe Contest that Edmazing is co-hosting and getting into the Christmas spirit. If you haven't checked those out, please do so. In keeping with that spirit, we had some holiday fic recs come about this week. Some are classics, some are newer, and we've included some of those to help get you in the mood for some mistletoe. In addition, we have a variety of stories ranging from a fly boy, to an art thief, to a mobster, to a musician. There's an Edward for everyone! We hope you enjoy the TLS approved selections this week and will leave the authors some love, letting them know where you saw their story recommended.
