Yuletide Recs, Part 2

Seeing as reveals are in about 24 hours, I'll go ahead and post my second batch, even though I'm nowhere near done reading the archive. I'll probably do one more batch once I've finished, post reveals.

I think I found most of these through recs on yuletide, so if you've been reading those, you can easily skip mine. :D

Thanks for the recs! The 30 Rock one is hilarious, and I'll get to checking out the Dexter one once I've checked out S5 (I'm slow on catching up on Dexter after hearing not-so-great things about S5, but still want to give it a go anyhow).

Good to see the old comments format on your page--much easier to use than the newer version!

You're welcome! You definitely need S5 for that fic, and the basics of S6, but otherwise it's an AU of S6. Enjoy!

Oh, and yeah, custom comment pages work the same, it's the default S1 pages that are all wacky...
