    Summary

    In 1832, 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

    'I am breaking Mr Segundus’s trust in writing to you without his knowledge, but he will not hear of doing it himself. I do not know if you have quarrelled, but I beg you to return to Starecross with all possible urgency. Mr Segundus remains ill. The doctor has visited twice this week, and I fear he can only be with us again soon. I do not know if you can be of any assistance, but it is most serious.'

    Summary

    Spring 1814: Drawlight's life among the London elite is a wellcrafted lie, a performance build upon favours and false promises. Childermass watches it all unravel as the curtain call approaches and cannot help but get caught up in the final act of this delightfull tragedy.

    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

    “...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

    While mapping out the King’s Roads, the magicians of York stumble onto the gentleman with the thistle-down hair: not nearly as dead as everyone believed, although greatly weakened. Taking pity, John Segundus tries to reintroduce him into English society.

    But as the consequences of exploring Faerie slowly begin to trickle into England, all the magicians of York find themselves
    cornered by a chaos of changes which may threaten more than just their lives, and which will require more than magic to put to rights.

    Summary

    Strange is in love with Arabella (who is in love with Flora, which is why she broke up with him). Segundus is sure Emma Wintertowne is the love of his life (which is why he broke up with her). Childermass is probably an alcoholic, Norrell is having a nervous breakdown, and Lascelles won't stop eating Cheetos with chopsticks.

    It's the modern AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    Segundus peered balefully at Childermass from over the edge of the blankets. “Do not tell me you intend to spend the night in that chair.”

    “Very well,” Childermass replied. “I will not tell you that.” It was obvious from his manner, however, that spending the night in that chair was precisely what he intended.

    After a trying day, Childermass and Segundus secure a room at an inn. Things transpire.

    Summary

    Segundus held him hard and looked at his face with wide eyes. Childermass tolerated this examination, only flinching back when Segundus’ other hand came up toward his face.

    “There is a black cloud about you,” Segundus said. His fingers did not actually reach Childermass; rather, they grasped at the air around him as if the black cloud he spoke of was not a cloud at all, but rather a curtain he could draw aside if he could but seize upon it. “It responds to me, but I cannot make it leave.”

    Magic has always been a constant for Childermass- not least because he is cursed. But when Segundus falls ill, everything might change.
