  4. Summary

    Several years after the events of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, the eponymous gentlemen find magic that allows them to contact others through their dreams. Meanwhile, John Segundus has started a school, Arabella Strange is learning magic from him, Emma Pole writes furious letters to the Times and helps create curriculum, and John Childermass has somehow become a fixture there when he's not traveling around the country to loom at people. Add in one Nameless King who wants to improve human-fairy relations and can think of no better place to start than with young magicians, and you get an astonishing amount of trouble.

    Or: an exceedingly polyamorous pining-and-fluff domestic postcanon AU to soothe your harried soul.

    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.
