    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.

    "Shall I teach you the language of flowers, darling?"

    When Henry Lascelles dreamed of his mother, it was for the first time in twenty years; dreaming of that long-ago day he had offered her flowers, and she declined them.

    Summary

    John Segundus knew that some people were inclined to fall in love with others. He also knew that such a love might lead to a desire to kiss (and, indeed, a desire to do other, less-than-savoury things). Not any of this was a surprise to John; what was a surprise was that these any of these notions of love and kissing might apply to him.

    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

    After being ordered away, Childermass returns to help Strange and Norrell. Of course, since he is also an English magician, he is as stuck as the other two. From there follow Naiads (or rather one Naiad, but with enough trouble for several), the terrifying possibility of Eternal Sleep, goblin kingdoms, and a great deal of quarreling.

    Summary

    It rained upwards the following morning. 

    That it to say, the rain; the direction of the droplets, despite Mr Isaac Newton's best efforts to understand gravity, and all things that portend to it, was severely contradicted the morning of December 17th, 1819. 

    Because the rain fell from the ground to the sky.
