Hello fanfic readers!
It’s the last Fanfic Friday of 2016! And even though December is dedicated to the winter holidays, today’s fic recs are all about New Year’s Eve. We have chosen 10 different fics for 10 different fandoms for this special occasion.
Hopefully they will help you get in the mood for New Year’s Eve!
Summary: “I sent you a Christmas card that got sent back to me. Did you get a new apartment?” his dad wonders. The question is all suspicion and little anything else. A flicker of an idea sparks. It’s not nearly formed well enough for him to say, “Yeah, actually,” and when he follows that with, “I moved in with someone,” he wants to punch himself in the face. He’s living with someone?! “You’re living with someone?” It’s the same voice and tone as the one in Stiles’ head, just thirty years older. Two things keep Stiles from bashing his face onto the table: there’s a steaming cup of coffee in the way and, more importantly, his dad will definitely hear. Someone passes by in front of him and a semi-familiar book cover catches his eye. “Derek Hale,” he muses, and stops. No. That wasn’t meant to be out loud.
Fandom: Teen Wolf

Summary: Charles makes a New Year’s Resolution: “No more straight men,” Charles repeated as he began scrolling through the apartment directory for Emma’s name. “No more futility. No more pointless hoping and heartbreak. In 2013, I never want to hear the words ‘exception,’ ‘experimenting’ or ‘phase.’ If, God forbid, I hear ‘bicurious’ even once, I may take a hostage.” Then he goes into the party, and Erik is there.
