  1. Thank you so much for adding my John & Margaret ficlet “The Christmas Gift” to your suggestions.

    Here are a few of my favourite Guy (& Marian) Christmas fics by two of the most gifted Guy writers in the fandom- the first three are available only on Dreamerfiction and, therefore, you have to be a member to read them. However, it’s free and one of the best RA-character-inspired boards for fanfiction on the net, so I can’t thik of a better time of the year to join and enjoy a well of unique and quality writing.:

    “The Fawn” by Jayarjay: (Post Series 2 Guy one-shot) Heartbreaking at the very beginning and beautifully touching when Guy’s fortuitous encounter with a baby fawn puts hope in his heart and showers him with forgiveness, friendship and love from an unexpected source. A perfect holiday gift delivered in a brief but gorgeous package.


    “The Solitary Berry” by Jayarjay (Series 2 G/M one-shot): Guy plans the perfect Christmas feast at Locksley with Marian in mind.Gorgeous, fluffy and with a believable dose of angst as it befits our favourite knight.


    “The Twelve Days of Christmas” by Jayarjay (twelve-chaptered G/M fic plus an epilogue set after he’s discovered she’s the Night Watchman) Guy shows to Marian there’s another side to him and little by little she discovers the truth she’s been too blind to see.


    “A Proper Gift” by Moriko aka Eternal Madness: AU one-shot set after Series 2 in which Marian’s become Guy’s wife honouring the promise she made to him in Acre in exchange for Vasey’s death. It’s Guy’s dream finally come true, but nothing’s ever come easy for him, particularly when it comes to winning his Lady’s heart.

    Christmas arrives and with it the time to make a final decision.
