I didn't watch UnReal for the femslash, but I still love the last image of the season, and so was happy to see this fic.

Swingtown
You Be Stunning (Baby, I'll Be Stunned)
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5469257

Trina/Janet are my OTP, but this fic covers some ground the show ignored.

Mad Max

http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5496635
A fixit fic that chooses not to be, the femslash is minimal.

There's always joy in fic that is not only for fandom but also about fandom. For me the best of those this year were:

The Martian
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5465561
What happens once Mark Watney's video logs are made public. it's a little more internet now than internet near future, but that really doesn't matter. #watneylog
(incidentally I just sorted Yuletide by Kudos, and this fic has the most)


Jane the Virgin
http://archiveofourown.org/works/5468876/chapters/12640433
Rogelio finds out about RPF, and responds in a very Rogelio like way.

And I think this was probably the most retweeted Yuletide fic, at least that I saw:
This American Life (with various crossovers)
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5491805

This is just short, but it's included for the crossover, because the world needs more:

The Bletchley Circle/Agent Carter
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5448095

And I can't miss out fic for an actual NZ source text:
Footrot Flats
The Best Biscuits
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5423564
The Scarlet Manuka rides again!

The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin
The First Train to Brotherhood
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5469650
Not beautiful, but useful; much like Pravic.

Dark Matter
By the Numbers
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/works/5470325
Might count as preslash.

And a couple of fandoms where I'd just say read all the fic:
Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/tags/Dark%20Is%20Rising%20Sequence%20-%20Susan%20Cooper/works
Several long continuations fics.

Ancillary books by Ann Leckie
http://archiveofourown.org/collections/yuletide2015/tags/Imperial%20Radch%20Series%20-%20Ann%20Leckie/works
Lots of tea and fish sauce
