Yuletide fics have been revealed a couple of days ago, and I got this delightful story in one of my teeny tiny fandoms, Gail Carriger's Finishing School series. Which series, by the way, I much recommend for anyone who might enjoy reading about young ladies in the 19th century at a boarding school where, under the guise of becoming fine society ladies, they actually become fine highly-trained intelligencers and spies for Her Majesty. And in between, drink lots of tea, and mess around with entertaining steampunk gadgets. But anyway, I got an incredibly fun story about Sophronia and her friends having to help out Sophronia's nemesis, Monique. The characters are their delightful selves, and the story most definitely doesn't lack in entertaining steampunk gadgets or references to tea.

Monique has her last chance to Finish at the Headmistress' Christmas tea. If she doesn't, the school itself might be Finished. But she needs a little help from an unexpected source.

There are many other fine stories in the Yuletide 2017 collection, though I haven't yet got around to reading nearly all that I wish to read.
