Shadow of Night Read Along: Chapter 27
Matthew and Diana arrive at Prague at the eighth of March, and three days later Matthew is getting ready to see Rudolph, even though Pierre and the children, with whom they parted ways in Hamburg, haven’t arrived yet. To gain the emperor’s favor, Matthew plans on giving him an altarpiece painted by Bosch—however, this is supposed to be a last resort, as he is reluctant to part with it. However, the emperor doesn’t grant him an audience. Nearly two weeks later (Matthew still hasn’t been able to see the emperor) Pierre arrives with the children as well—Jack has had a growth spurt, but he looks sick, because he hasn’t been able to sleep due to nightmares. At Pierre’s prompting, some gossip is talked about—apparently, a witch created a clay golem in the Jewish quarter. This can only mean one thing: there is a weaver in Prague, something Matthew had tried to keep a secret from Diana. To speed things up, Matthew decides to send the altarpiece to the emperor after all. That night, Diana wakes to an empty bed—Matthew is teaching Jack how to draw in the adjoining room, to keep the nightmares away. The painting finally does it, and Matthew is summoned to the palace that afternoon, however, he is to bring Diana along. At the palace, they meet Tadeás Hájek, the royal physician, and Master Strana, whose sister is the emperor’s mistress—the former a friend, the latter less so. Finally, the emperor arrives as well, and immediately sets his eyes on Diana. At the emperor’s order, Matthew shows him the book he promised him—which is, of course, the Voynich Manuscript, which angers Rudolf. Still, Matthew makes it clear that he wants Ashmole 782, but lies that he only wants to know that Edward Kelley is there on his own free will. Then to conversation turns to Rudolf’s curiosities, but Matthew still insists that he wants to see the book and Edward Kelley, but Rudolf won’t yield. Matthew tells him they’ll wait, then. When told that Diana has been tasked with purchasing glassware for Mary, Rudolf allows Diana to visit his workshops—it’s already clear that that he intends to court her.
I kinda wanna know what Matthew and Diana did during those three days between arriving in Prague and the start of the chapter.
By now Diana has enough stuff that her linen make up a whole box.
Orlissa’s now customary fashion history tidbit: petticoats wouldn’t necessarily be white. In fact, red was fashionable. What was white is anything that made contact with the skin—those garments were changed frequently, so they needed to be easy to clean. A petticoat, however, wouldn’t make contact with the skin (there was a chemise under it).
Gosh, I love Bosch’s paintings.
Also, I hate how the de Clermonts casually own original paintings by big masters.So not fair.
It’s infinitely hilarious that Bosch accidentally saw Matthew feed and it influenced his whole life’s work.
I do have a feeling that Matthew has a tendency of misplacing his keys. Also, I love how they tease each other.
I love the mental image of Diana standing on the top of the table.
I wonder if Charles is already a vampire here. We know he’s still alive in the 21st century, and that he was Chef’s assistant. It could be that he’s still human at this point.
It’s so cute that Gallowglass just randomly brings Diana a pretzel.
Jack had drawing equipment with him during the journey—what a luxury for a “servant” in the 16th century.
Matthew knows he’ll have to get the altarpiece back, because he must have it in the present.
The name Hoefnagel always reminds me of an old Hungarian cartoon. It’s kinda hard to explain what it was about, because it had three seasons, and all three had wildly different concepts. But overall, it was about an average family who somehow always got into trouble (e.g. in the first season they made contact with their descendant in the future, who kept sending futuristic gadgets that always backfired in the end), and the episodes usually ended with the wife lamenting “Why didn’t I marry Steve Hoefnagel?”
Which one of King Phillip’s wives objected to the Titian?
Teasing is still precious.
I’m kinda disappointed in Matthew for not providing Diana with suitable fancy clothing by this point. This should be a question of pride.
Matthew surely speaks English, Occitan, French, Latin, Spanish, Italian, and German. I also strongly suspect some Indian dialect (Hindi?) and Dutch. I wonder what else?
(After Diana finds Matthew’s red hose.)
“Tell me now if you have a habit of losing your car keys, because I’m not putting up with this kind of panic every morning when you get ready for work.” I slid my arms around his waist and rested my cheek on his heart. That slow, steady beat always calmed me.
“What are you going to do, divorce me?” Matthew returned the embrace, resting his head on mine so that we fit together perfectly.
Back in London, Matthew had taken to supplying Jack with a pocketful of paper scraps every morning. How Jack went through them was a matter of some speculation.
“Besides,” Gallowglass continued. “Among my people it’s a great compliment to be likened to a raven. I’ll be Muninn, and Matthew we’ll call Huginn. Your name will be Göndul, Auntie. You’ll make a fine Valkyrie.”
