And a good evening to you all. Or, at least, in my reckoning.

I bring with me the first of a few different contributions to the JS&MrN fandom.

This was a quick fic, mostly serving as a bit of backstory for Childermass. I'll probably change this within the next few days. This is just the beginning draft.

Anyway, this is just fandom. My supposings. Enjoy, and tell me what you think.

Being relatively new to the etiquette of livejournal, I am not entirely sure whether introductory posts with nothing much to say are discouraged. Therefore I shall combine my first post to this excellent community with a few questions of my own.
I finished JS&MN two days ago and immediately went net-surfing to find any communities/fan-fiction/fanart etcetera to do with the subject. My first few attempts were in vain, but then I happened upon this community, and was immediately impressed. 
So, a bit of relevant information about me:
Allegiance - probably Strangite
Favourite Character - Childermass

And my questions:
Is Childermass a descendant of John Uskglass? They share the same first name (although it is quite a common one), hail from the same area, and their appearances are similar. Also, Childermass seems to be extremely susceptible to magic, which I believe means he may have fairy blood in him.

A rather more practical concern:
Does anyone know of any good JS&MN fanfiction and fanart? Preferably to do with Childermass and preferably gen.

Finally, the book arrived even in Italy, so I could get it and read it!
I think it's useless to say that I LOVED it, because I found there all the enchanting magic and the superb style that made me so fond of JS&MrN.
It's even more useless, in my opinion, to say how hard is to determine a best story between the others; because each one (and I include in the number also the Introduction) was special and a small litteraire jewel!
At last, the two ones I liked the most were The Ladies (where I was reaaly glad to meet again several characters from JS&MrN in a story with just the same novel's atmosphere) and Tom Brightwind, the most particular of all; but I even liked a lot the stories about Jhon Uskglass, Wellington and Mary Stuart, and the beautiful rielaboration of an old popular tale I already knew that was On Lickerish Hill...

Hello everyone, I'm currently doing a translation of "John Uskglass and Cumbrian charcoal burner" into Russian. Just curious, if someone has any ideas on why Blakeman, the pig, bears a somewhat human name? =) Or it's just my illusion as a non-native speaker of English :/ I would appreciate your opinions and associations with the word "Blakeman" in the context. Just cannot decide whether to look for an adequate equivalent for Blakeman in Russian or not :)
Thanks in advance.

Hello, I run the the_famulus and I've noticed that very few people post fan fiction for this fandom. However, there is a lot of fanart. I've heard people say that writing fanfiction is intimidating because many writers try to imitate Susanna Clarke. While Artists do not seek to imitate Portia Rosenberg or Charles Vess and only seem to be limited by their skill, medium and imaginations. I wish more writers had the latter approach.
Or is that fan fiction doesn't appeal as much as fan art. I don’t know, I just wish there were more writers, at least more in my community.

Also if anyone is interested in making some icons for the community, I will write them a fanfic about anything they request.

Have you read The Ladies of Grace Adieu and other stories, a short story collection by Susanna Clarke? The stories in it are mostly about dealing with fairies, and then there are a couple of stories with familiar characters from Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.

SPOILERS under cut.

My favourite stories were...Collapse )

What are your thoughts on these stories?

By the way, there's a new Friends of English Magic discussion forum.
