First of all, my gift was the most marvellous piece by the dear toft_froggy, Five Times Peter Guillam Didn't Have A Drink With Ricki Tarr (and One Time He Did) - Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011), Peter Guillam/Ricki Tarr (R)
This is a lovely shaded piece, with lots of hints to other things under the surface, just as any Tinker, Tailor fic should be, and I've read it lots and I love it to bits - so do go read it too.
My own offerings were these:
Title: Great Marlborough Street
Fandom: Hanover Street
Pairing: David Halloran/Paul Sellinger (preslash)
Word Count: 2,744
Notes: Written for Peet4paint. I watched the movie and then wrote the fic as it was clear from her letter that this was the fandom she really wanted something written in :)
Summary: Halloran looked up, and wouldn't you know it, he was standing on the corner of Hanover Street. What was it about this place that his feet just unknowingly took him here?

Title: Love in a Cold Climate
Fandom: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)
Pairing: Peter Guillam/Richard, Ricki Tarr/Irina, George Smiley/Ann Smiley, Bill Haydon/Jim Prideaux
Word Count: 1,571
Notes: Written for Bogged. My only pinch hit this year, because my writing brain has been a little overloaded from other things. But I am glad I got one pinch hit in, at least, so I can feel I did my best!
Summary: People love and are loved in so many different ways. In the hotbed that is the Cold War, these are just some of them.
