Rec of the Week:
This has been really difficult: So many AoS people are taking part in the Snowflake Fandom Challenge, and one of the challenges is to rec three fanworks. So I've picked from those recs one in part of the AoS fandom that we don't see much of these days, the Sharpe fandom. The rec is from [personal profile] latin_cat who had this to say: Why I'm recommending this: This had the honour of being the first ever fanvid created for this pairing; there still aren't that many. It's a brilliant vid, very clever in its use of the song lyrics and the footage, and suits the tone of this series perfectly.

Fanvid: Jolene by [personal profile] le_russe_satan; Sharpe; PG-13; Sharpe/Wellington, Sharpe/Teresa; Wellington is afraid how easily he could lose a hold on Sharpe's affections.
