    Summary

    It started with a letter. A rather mysterious letter with little in it and no name from who sent it. It was such a peculiar letter that Miss Havisham had to write back. It was silly to do so but it was a kindly distraction from the daily pain she was lost in.

    It was a foolish idea on his part but Mr. Jaggers had nothing to lose by sending it. He didn't expect a response back but a letter came. It would be very rude of him to just end the correspondence, now would it?

    Summary

    Mr Jaggers is well aware of what is written in Havisham's will; he knows full well that Miss Amelia Havisham will one day run the brewery. So, therefore, an education is in order, to teach the young woman important matters of business. A very practical education. And, yet, it turns out to be an education for all involved.

    Summary

    It is early 1820. Strange and Norrell have been in the Darkness together for about three years. Hurtfew Abbey is still located in Kassel, Germany, where the two magicians are enjoying discussions of magic and sharing of books with Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. One morning Norrell wakes up to find Strange missing. He is the only one capable of saving the younger magician, but can he get up the courage to enter Faerie and fight a powerful foe?

    Explicit only in Chapter 4.

    Thanks to Predatrix for the original prompt and for some passages of dialogue.

    Summary

    Written to fulfill the following prompt, for the jsamn kink meme week mini-fill challenge (though this is a bit big for a mini-fill):

    So in a lot of things I have read Norrell has usually only fallen in love once, and very deeply with the person in the fic (sometimes also the Raven King but yeah), and I was thinking of something a little different. How about a Norrell who is lonely and doesn't have many friends and companions, and never did, so whenever someone is kind to him and becomes his friend or shows attention to him he falls in love with them (could be that he imagines himself in love, or actually falls in love properly). It always ends badly and he is always so upset afterwards, meaning he has so much hope each time that this time it will be better and they will love him back.

    Basically give me Norrell who falls in love hard and fast, and gets his heart broken every time.

    Summary

    “After all, Mr. Strange, we are in a strange land. Who knows what untold dangers lurk in the shadows here!”

    And that was how Jonathan had been talked into sharing his bed with Gilbert Norrell.

     

    A fill for a kink meme prompt asking for non-platonic bed sharing in the Pillar of Darkness. Brief mentions of Strange/Arabella and Norrell/Childermass
