    Summary

    In 1831, a young ambitious Gascon arrives in Paris. He is a descendant of the Great d' Artagnan and hopes to live up to his family name in the service of the Musketeers*. The world however is not that of his great ancestor. This is France after the Revolution that deposed the Bourbon monarchy and after the fall of Napoleon. Louis Philippe is now King of the French, assisted by his powerful advisor, the vampire, Minister Guizot. It is also a world in the aftermath of the sinister events of March 1817 that ended with the disappearance of the two English magicians, Mr. Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and the coming of the Raven King who now rules from the Throne of Rome. Since then, boundaries between this world and the Other Lands have collapsed unleashing powers no one has been able to contain. A new prophecy speaks of new heroes, allies, and a sacrifice of love but the Raven King suppresses it because it clearly is not what he had expected. Who are these heroes and how are their destinies intertwined with the strange fate of the two lost magicians?

    *Dear Reader, please note that historically, the Musketeers had been disbanded by this period. I hope you can suspend your...disbelief!

    Summary

    A reworked fill for the following kink meme prompt:
    Pretty much what it says on the tin. Give me lonely, awkward teenage Norrell fantasizing or dreaming (or both!) about being taken by his King. That's it.

    Summary

    “There is a girl down there.” He said. “She came with others, but she was the only one bold enough to move forward.”

    I froze where I was, turning back to look at him. While he was still gazing out towards our camp, I could see in the way he held himself that he was waiting for some response from me, wanting to know if I was listening.

    “What are you saying?” I prodded, “Who are you talking about?”

    He turned back to me, shrugging. “They came from the village. I do not know why, perhaps to see who we were. Most of them hung back but one moved forward. She danced with one of the men. Is still dancing with him, even now. By morning she will die.”

    Summary

    There are some ancient areas of magic that are very far afield from what any gentleman would consider respectable. But John Childermass is not a gentleman.

    Summary

    "A pang shot through me, of the sort one grows used to experiencing when interacting with John Uskglass, even if only for a short time. As though I’d stepped into the middle of a conversation, and was expected to respond as if I knew what was going on. God above, I will swear it that John Uskglass is the living personification of this very feeling given flesh."

    Summary

    "I write this in order that I may better make some sense of this days events. I am only half-assured that they truly happened, and were not a vision sent by Irmo, though to what purpose that would be I cannot say. The man I met today was no Vala, no Maia, not even a servant of Morringotto's. Of that atleast I am assured. From what I have seen, I do not believe he was a being of this world at all, though how that is possible, I cannot even grasp."

    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.
