Note from the Editor: this edition starts with an embarrassed apology. It's Trafalgar Day in three days' time and I had intended to run a Trafalgar Day Fanworks Challenge this year, to celebrate. And guess what I haven't left enough time to do?! I'll remember next year, though. How has your week been?

Fanfic:
It Has Been Many Weary Months (A multi-media fanwork) by [personal profile] jessamygriffith; AU Sherlock fic set in 1812; 15 for implied slash; Sherlock/John (implied); In the summer of the year 1812 at the beginning of the war between England and America, a Lieutenant S. Holmes of His Majesty's Royal Navy, banished by his superiors to Upper Canada for insubordination, wrote a personal letter to his friend and companion Doctor St-J. H. Watson. He enclosed this letter in a package with several other objects intended to be sent to the Doctor via the next packet ship.
