For sekala

The Marquis de Carabas is not lusting after the Upworlder Richard Mayhew.

He was an Upworlder himself once, before slipping and finding a much better place to practice his art, and he knows what they're like.

For another thing, Richard and the Lady Door have been getting increasingly close since he returned to them, and the Marquis doesn't want to end up owing the girl the biggest favour of his life, for stealing her man.

But sometimes he wakes up gasping and sweating, from dreams of dark hair and a deft hand with a spear.

He blames Croup and Vandemar.

That's hella weird - I started writing this big Marquis/Old Bailey/Mayhew triangle thing a while back and lost interest. Thanks for writing this, but DAMN YOU for making me want to pick it up again!

Ooh, luvverly stuff. there's a big gaping hole in my heart for Neverwhere, and this goes a bit of the way to filling it. An extended version would be so good... although for some reason, I could never see Richard as responding to the Marquis. Still, luvvly stuff.
