Rec of the Week:
I would like to recommend that people take a peek at [personal profile] the_comfortable_courtesan, a rather wonderful journal by [personal profile] oursin which purports to be a journal kept by a courtesan in the early nineteenth century. It is highly amusing and beautifully written and observed, as well as (so far!) being updated every day.

From the Vickery Family Papers, Letter 14 by [personal profile] sharpiefan; Show the Colours; G; John Vickery; Continuing the correspondence from the papers of the Vickery family, between Captain John Vickery of the 5/60th and members of his family.
Jetsam by [personal profile] justincase; Aubreyad; PG-13; HMS Surprise (personification); She had known for some time she was to be broken; she’d felt it from her captain’s actions. He was sad, and he could tell no one. She wanted to comfort him, as she always had when he and she were younger.
Flotsam by [personal profile] justincase; Aubreyad; PG-13; Jack, Stephen, Sophie; Heneage Dundas, Pullings, Babington, Richardson; so many others in the street. Stephen had stood close to him there in the stock; Jack knew he was speaking to him, but it all seemed dreamlike; he’d distanced himself from that reality. That ordeal was now behind him and yet Jack still felt something ominous, not unlike a lee shore in the darkness of the moon.
Interludes in the Dark by [personal profile] muccamukk; Aubreyad; PG-13; Jack and Stephen; Jack didn't remember falling.

Discordancy by [profile] rosedark; Jane Austen's Emma; PG-13; Emma Woodhouse/Jane Fairfax/George Knightley; It’s like a broken clock she cannot set aright, somehow both too fast and too slow; or the draft from a carelessly opened door that she cannot place, sighing its sobering chill into even the gayest of parlours. And it is at its strongest, perhaps, whenever she chances to hear Miss Fairfax play.
