“My Lord,” Grant clears his throat, “my Lord, there is something I believe you should see.”
Wellington looks up from his report. He does not look amused. “Major Grant, I believe I told you to find me my magician.”
“Yes, my Lord. I’m afraid I… ouch!”
“Major Grant, what is the matter? Where is Merlin?”
Grant makes no reply, only unfolds his arms from behind his back and deposits something on the Duke’s desk. It is a small, furry something.
“Major Grant. What is this?” Wellington gestures at the creature with his pen.
“We believe it to be a stoat, my Lord.”
Title: Jonathan Stoat
Characters: William De Lancey, Colquhoun Grant, Jonathan Strange & Duke of Wellington
Summary: Merlin has a small problem with one of his spells. Part of the author’s The Twelve Days of (JSAMN fanfic) Christmas.
Author’s Notes: A Christmas gift for etave, who requested anything with Jonathan Stoat. With apologies to solitaryjo and nothinghamshire, who wrote the original and excellent Major Fox and Colonel De Squirrel AUs. I cannot hope to match them, and if it wasn’t a Christmas present, I wouldn’t have dared to try!
