(I feel like JSMN is increasing as a Thing and so I take the opportunity to repost this wee thing I did a year ago)
I was just listening to the Jonathan strange and Mr norrell audiobook, one of my dearest literary comfort foods, and was thinking someone should really put the ballad of the raven king to music, a slow dorian mode composition for preference, and then BAM this pops up on my dash.
Just got married! Nbd. I’ve always had resistance to having a wedding, because eww gender binary and gah lack of marriage equality, but now seven years into our relationship, time was right. simple courthouse ceremony. No blood family present, because we both have huge scattered families, and the guest list would’ve become a source of drama. Two close friends to serve as witnesses and toddler wranglers (our child Finch was agreeably baffled by the whole thing). The clerk minister person used the neutral ceremony, so there was a bare minimum of gendered bullshit (no “protect and honor” or “love and obey” ugh). The most beautiful words: “I now pronounce you a married couple” .
Is there seriously No phryne Fisher / Peter wimsey crossover fic? Nor any downton abbey / Jonathan strange and Mr norrell? Even though there both take place in Yorkshire? I’m surprised at you Internet.
Want something done, got to do it yourself, I guess.
