    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

    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

    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

    Suddenly, the door was pulled open and John Segundus stood in the doorway. He was clad only in his shirtsleeves and waistcoat, his neckcloth haphazardly tied and his hair mussed. Childermass blinked; whatever he had been expecting, it was not this. His relative dishabille was uncomfortably familiar.

    Summary

    He had a mind inclined to curiosity, an open heart disposed to the mysterious and the magical, and the hands of a musician: broad-palmed, long-fingered, elegantly balanced. Segundus was determined that in time, he would learn the instrument of Childermass's body.

    Summary

    To call Mr John Segundus mild was a slight misnomer, and perhaps a misapprehension about his character. He was indeed kind-hearted and compassionate. He had impeccable manners. Admittedly, his mien was one of placidity and accommodation, but one could attribute that to good breeding and a horror of causing offense. But in his interests, and in his heart, in the place he kept for himself (though, he had to admit, there was no one with whom he could share) he was as passionate as any man.

    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.

    Summary

    Gentlemen were for managing, and sometimes manipulating. Gentlemen were tools to be used in a grander design. Gentlemen were not objects of desire.

    Summary

    Set 18 months or so post canon, and on the assumption that Starecross Hall has become something of a base of operations for our heroes, who have all become friends, of sorts.

    Shameless silliness in which a moment of mischief from Miss Wintertowne precipitates a battle of will and trickery with Mr Childermass.

    Summary

    Inspired by the kink meme prompt: "Everyone! CRACK - they all visit McDonald's: I just, have this desire for all of the characters to be queuing in McDonald's and discussing what they'd like to order."
    It'll probably be a multi-chapter work. Kind of just disjointed drabbles, more for fun than anything else. I hope you all enjoy!

    Summary

    Mid-February 2017 is, give or take, the 200th anniversary of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell leaving England in the darkness, and the snow last week inspired me to write this. Anniversaries are always a kicker for those left behind, and the first year is always the hardest.

    Mr Norrell's disappearance finally catches up with Childermass, and he finds empathy in from an unexpected source.

    Summary

    Of stones that may be key to deciphering the King's Letters and comparative linguistics, of Russian scholars and English radicals; of printing presses and scullery maids.
    Also: Mr Segundus is in love. Mr Childermass is recalcitrant.
