On the first day of Yuletide, a writer gave to me…

The Heirs of English Magic
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke
Arabella Strange, Lady Pole, Stephen Black, Sir Walter Pole, John Segundus, King George III

My prompt for this was:

Arabella, Lady Pole and Stephen were thrown together in their horrible, weird prison and enchantment. I'd love to have some post-novel fic in which they are in some way thrown together again, and deal with each other as intelligent, free people who are still variously marked by their experience.


So here we have them, as politicians, reformers, ethicists, educators, and, well, in Stephen's case of course, as a king. An especially nice touch is the parallel concerns of the people and England and the fae: just as the English (largely, you'll see exceptions in the fic) don't want to share Arabella and Lady Pole's fate, nor do Stephen's subjects want to be at the beck and call of every magician in England.
