Title: Pass the Mistletoe
Author: DKiNY
Genre: Humor, Romance
Rating: T, or PG13 if not going by FF.Net's rating scale
Pairings (if applicable): Implied Jounouchi/Seto, Malik/Ryou. The former of the two is what the plot is focused on, though there are lots of sprinklings of the latter in here. I don't even like Jou/Seto and I found it hilarious in this one, so I think that says something.
Summary: Jounouchi has a lust-crush. Ryuuji has dice. Malik has mistletoe. Mokuba has access. Ryou has a scheme. Seto... has stalkers.
Why it's good: This is one of those fanfics that is short and to the point. There's none of that uber-long description, and no flowery prose. And even without it, it's very easy to picture what's going on, because the writer here has the "show, don't tell" concept down completely. Also, I find this to be a true "humor" fic, because... well, the one-liners here are perfect, to put it bluntly. They're well-timed and just... all-around good, really. It's like watching a sitcom.

However, there are a few inconsistencies with canon, though I think they can be excused since this was written... probably before certain aspects of canon were common knowledge. And there's a little bit of Japanese Usage, but. With the sheer humor of this fic, it's quite easy to ignore them.

It's supposed to be two parts, but given how long it's been since it was posted, I doubt the second part will be coming along very soon. It's still quite a good read on its own, though. ;D It always puts a smile on my face, at least.
