Long post forthcoming on the China blog, but meanwhile, I wanted to drop off a link for you. I'm not much of a fanfic person, but I'm always tickled by the things you can find at [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, and today over there I discovered the most tone-perfect bit of fan fiction conceivable: "The Account Book," by a still-anonymous author, based on Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle. The book is rather a favorite of mine, and its ending is melancholy and exquisite, and somehow this writer gave it another ending after that one without hitting a single wrong note. Warning: it is long, and I'm not sure how much sense it makes if you haven't read the novel, but it is really quite amazingly flawlessly good.
