    Summary

    This story is AU and plays with the idea of how life at Downton Abbey had been different if Violet had really eloped with Prince Kuragin. The story starts in 1912, before the sinking of the Titanic. This is an ensemble fic that focuses on Violet & Kuragin, Robert & Cora, Carson & Mrs Hughes, as well as some original characters. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
