    Summary

    Hollywood, the 1940s - You might be a big time studio boss like Walt Pole III or a wannabe like Chris Draw; or maybe someone new in town like Jonathan Strange. One thing's for sure; sooner or later you'll find yourself sitting down with John Childs, because he's the man who takes care of business round here - when he's not running errands for Gil Norrell or pursuing some enquiries of his own.

    Summary

    When Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell disappear, others are left to deal with the consequences of the return of magic to England: this side of the rain, Childermass and Segundus must work together for the greater good, but their paths have crossed many times over the years and feelings have been crushed in the process.

    A tale of the man who asked The Question and set the revival of English magic in motion, and of the man who has always seemed to know where to look for answers - except to his own heart’s desires.

    Summary

    The Raven King never took magic from England, but that does not mean that it free for everyone to study and perform. For magic is strictly meant for the talented, wealthy and connected, none of which John Segundus found himself. But when John Childermass offers him the opportunity of a lifetime, how can he refuse? But Segundus finds that not even the knowledge of his mentor is enough to have England’s magicians accept him. And when certain events drive each to desperation, one makes a decision that both will come to regret. A decision that leaves both without hope.

    Inspired by Bachabooska and their awesome video: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiP26HNl8bU&list=WL&index=21). Somethings may have been changed around to fit the story I plan to tell.

    Summary

    What if Jonathan's magic flared wildly while he was panicky in the forest? What if it reached through to a parallel universe when he cried, 'help help!' and pulled through the perfect person to help? Who would that person be? What shape would their help take?

    Summary

    This story is a fill for a prompt which asked for Childermass and Norrell in a 'Pride & Prejudice' style AU where gentlemen could marry each other - "And tell me you can't imagine the various proposal scenes with them."

    So - we are in a Regency AU where not only is magic an integral part of English history but where a gentleman may marry another gentleman (or a lady another lady) provided of course that that other gentleman (or lady) is of the proper rank and breeding.

    Against this background, The York Society of Magicians turns its attentions to an interesting but delicate question; should not Mr Gilbert Norrell be encouraged to marry some suitable young gentleman to be his companion, pupil and ultimately heir to his magical library? It would never do for his books to fall into the hands of those unsympathetic to magic after all, or for Mr Norrell himself to be swept off his feet by some fortune hunting cad up from London for the York Season. And the ideal candidate does seem to have presented himself to the Society....

    Summary

    “...There is nothing else in magic but the wild thought of the bird as it casts itself into the void. There is no creature upon the earth with such potential for magic.”

    The youngest Miss Erquistoune travels from Edinburgh to London to stay with her favorite cousin—Jonathan Strange. But Georgiana is very different from her sisters, in more ways than one; and her reasons for wanting to be close to the Greatest Magicians of the Age may be more complicated than they first appear. Her predilection for fire catches Childermass's attention, as his for shadows catches hers. Together, they try to find their way in the world, even as English magic threatens to change it forever.
