A community for the Rivers of London books


Ok, a discussion question

What do we think is the state of wizardry in other parts of the world? There was mention of two different schools of American wizardry, that didn't get along, but they were pretty much wiped out in World War Two. And the Nazis snapped up every magic user they could find and either killed them or enslaved them. But we saw the Chinese Taoist wizard in Whispers Underground, and apparently the Russians are still have an interest, so there's more going on then just the Folly. So what do we think is going on elsewhere?

Is there anyone still here?

Just got done rereading all the Rivers of London Books except The Hanging Tree which I don't have yet (not yet available in the US) and I'd love to discuss them.

Foxglove Summer - Thoughts!

So, Foxglove Summer is out and at least on tumblr everyone's already squeeing on it, so I wanted to ask here too: What are all your thoughts on it? Did you like it? What did you like? What maybe didn't you like? What do you think about all the new information we got about certain events and characters?

Looks like Foxglove Summer publication date is delayed again :(

Just been on Amazon and Waterstones websites and it's saying that it's not out until 13th of November now.

Hi Everyone,

While I was on holiday this year bf and I did a divert to visit the birthplace of Isaac Newton. Thought you'd like to see photos of the house, the famous apple tree and the extremely friendly house cat Coco who wanted to come home with me.

I made some icons!

I, um, would like to apologise in advance for my cliched Nightingale. It's not 100% my headcanon, but the photoshoot was just too good to pass up (it has a vintage Jag!). I also caved to the temptation of adding some flare magic in some of these. If anyone wants any, help yourselves!<3 Credit appreciated etc.
(Fancast suggestions to make icons from are also v welcome!)

Searching for beta
Simons_cat

Since I'm unable to get in contact with my usual beta, I'm in need of someone who could beta a 3.5k Rivers of London fanfic for me. The deadline would be the 6th August, because Foxglove Summer Countdown. Also the piece has a few trigger warnings, namely: abusive/emotional manipulative relationship (albeit platonically), genocide, mind manipulation.
I would be very glad if someone could help me out, despite the unfortunate deadline (I would have asked sooner, but I had been still hoping for my beta to get back to me). Also, even if you would be unable to make it until the deadline, a bit beta'd fic, or an afterwards beta'd fic is better than not-at-all-beta'd fic.

Fic: Birdcage
Beam me up
philomytha
Finally occurred to me that I should probably link this from here: I've just finished posting a longish RoL casefic.

Title: Birdcage
Length: 32,000 words (10 chapters)
Content: casefic, mystery, adventure, spoilers for Broken Homes
Summary: When Nightingale disappears, Peter tries to find out what happened to him. But with the London Olympics opening in a few days and a string of magical crimes across the city, he can't afford to let any more major tourist attractions blow up either.

Birdcage

Beta request

Would anybody be able to beta a shortish 2k RoL fic? (G rated, Nightingale centric, set way pre books) No big hurry as I don't need to post it until mid July.
