    Summary

    Mister Lascelles has one man, who always does the works that are rather gruesome and not the job of a gentleman. They call him the Editor's Blood Hound, his night shade, when in reality his name is John Childermass. And his master has another task for him.
    (AU where Childermass is Henry Lascelles' hitman.)

    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

    “It is quite fascinating, you know, when one takes the time to think about it. Did you ever wonder what direction your life would ever take if you were to chuse differently, or if fate intervened? Did you ever wonder what life you could have lived, if this chance encounter had not occurred, or if you made a decision to go to this party, rather than that ball? But perhaps these are bad examples…”

    Summary

    This is a sequel to “Master and Man,” which dealt with Childermass’ life with Norrell, including their intimate relationship. That was told from Childermass’ point of view. Here we move into the beginning of Norrell’s being trapped in the Darkness with Strange, and their developing intimate relationship.
    The inspiration for this epic was a desire to reverse the situation of my earlier fic, “Jonathan Strange ♥ Mr Norrell.” There Norrell was sexually inexperienced and Strange initiated him. I wanted to make Norrell the sexually experienced one.

    In “Jonathan Strange ♥ Mr Norrell” I did a lot of world-building, working out how Norrell and Strange dealt with life in the Darkness. Clarke has them leave England after only three weeks, traveling in Hurtfew via the Darkness. I had them out a way to purchase supplies and rehire some of Norrell’s servants. They figured out the premises of the spell in which they were trapped and researched how to work the magic to travel in Hurtfew.

    I’m assuming that the same things happen much as they did in the earlier story. There are some references to that sort of thing going on in the background of the action here, but I focus mainly on the new plot.
