Why This Must Be Read: With Yuletide season upon us, this seemed like just the fic to rec. I really enjoyed reading “Fangirl” over the summer, and ditto for this charming extension to the story, which hooks the characters out of the world of the Harry Potter pastiche which was the main fandom in the novel into the wider world of fandom/Yuletide. It’s a sweet, kind-hearted, and adorable fic - the perfect way to revisit the characters. And it’s something of a thrill to hear fandom terminology that didn’t make it into the book here - the fact that Cath is indisputably a BNF, and uses that term here, is something I didn’t even know I was missing until I read it.
