Norrell: Where is Childermass?
Strange: Who is Childermass?
Lascelles: WHY is Childermass?
pineapples are an international symbol of hospitality so what the FUCK is this thing supposed to convey???
welcome to hell
What pineapples look like to Jonathan
Here is my piece for the @jsamnfanart’s exchange!
@fromgloriousjupiter ‘s third prompt said : “Jonathan Strange being afraid of pineapples; mad cowering is appreciated.” And honestly that part was just too good to pass. :) I hope you like it.
“… He put nine drops of the tincture into a glass of Vin Santo and drank it down. Immediately he became convinced that all the cupboards in the house were full of pineapples. He was certain that there were other pineapples under his bed and under the table. He was so alarmed by this thought that he felt hot and cold all over and was obliged to sit down on the floor.” ―Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
“…I performed magic which… as might not have been considered respectable… magic of older times. I’m not proud of it, sir. But often, sir… it worked.”
For @beeghosts, my match for the JSAMN Fanart Exchange 2017. The prompt I chose was: Segundus against a millefleur background. (Millefleur translates from French as ‘thousand flowers’.)I wasn’t familiar with millefleur before the exchange and while I’m aware my gift doesn’t exactly match the tapestry style, I hope you still like it @beeghosts! Inspired by some of the pieces, I’ve hidden a few things within the flowers ;)
OK SO THEY ARE GOING TO RELEASE AN ITALIAN BOARDGAME BASED ON JONATHAN STRANGE & MR NORRELL CAN YOU HEAR ME SCREAM CAN YOU
Wonderful! The novel deserves a franchise beyond the TV series. Just to clarify, the game is in English. Check out the images in the photo gallery and click on the each to enlarge it; you can read what it says on the cards. Being in English should make it quite widely available! Sophisticated Games, which will publish the game, is an English company and did the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit games, as well as a Gormenghast (!) one.
Shiny! Also, don’t I recognise the card artwork as being by @erebusodora?
Um, this is nice, and yes, the designs are mine. The sad part is that I never knew about this project and never gave any permission. Is there a way to contact these guys? I don’t even want any refunds, I just want to know why didn’t they contact me; I’m rather superstitious about the Tarot, so I can design any other type of image for them to use for free, there’s no problem in that - just not THESE ones.
Spread the word, anyone? Maybe there IS a way to contact the guys?..
Seriously? This is so not cool, erebusodora is such an awesome artist, she deserves credit at least for her work! Please signal boost this!
Guys, here’s the news: as quite a lot of you have supposed, the game as you see it here is a prototype for the possible game, and DO KEEP FINGERS CROSSED for its successful launch.
The authors of the project contacted me, and so far they only are meeting the publisher these days, and the question of using any specific artwork still stands. It might be mine; it might be someone else’s. In this very case, the images were used as an example for the developers to try the game mechanics, so I wish these guys the best of luck.))
Thanks for the update! I’ll keep my fingers crossed :-)
Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell → Modern AU Trailer
What if JSAMN had been set in 2016? What if instead of going to the Peninsula, Jonathan Strange fought with the army in the Middle East? Or was a spy for the MI5? And Mr Norrell was a rich magician with a business associate set on getting him into Parliament? What if Lady Pole was an heiress and Faeries were summoned wearing black leather jackets?
I spent ages deciding whether this was good enough or not and decided to hell with it, I’ll upload it anyway!
I need to re read the book now.
This show is so good.
Why was it not more popular? Why did it not win all the awards? It deserves all the praise. It’s just so superb.
