He is insistent that she give the deceased Isaiah's weapon to her brother and keep his. I often wondered why. Sue Law doesn't seem to have written much, but what she has got is of sterling quality and should be more well-known. This is one of my favourite of her fics.

Rec of the Week: Just to prove that it's not just fangirls who are slightly crazy about their fandom, I present you with a performance of a piece of classical music. The Hornblower Suite was written after reading CS Forester's Hornblower novels. And for something more along the lines of fandom as we know it, have a 'traditional' fanvid: Everybody Knows (Hornblower vid to a McFly song)
