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.

Note from the Editor: It's Trafalgar Day! How are you celebrating it - if 'celebrating' is the right word. How are you paying tribute to the Immortal Memory and the sacrifice of so many in, probably, the most famous Naval battle of all time? No fic this week, I'm afraid.
