    Summary

    Recently my brain is set on developing particular Chelsie scenes from the series, so this time I thought that I will let us through our favorite scene-the first kiss. As much as I've loved it and watched it like a million times, I still have the feeling that there was one thing missing- it was not long enough, but that's Fellowes idea-to keep them strict, in their characters and not to close to each other, but we don't have to follow the writer's intentions do we? ;-) Again I've borrowed lines from him, but I hope he won't mind.
    Charles and Elsie have to clarify their visions of marriage to each other-it seems that they have a different one, but appearances can be deceiving and pretty soon it may turn out that they are quite similar. Below you will find my version, very extended version of their first, true physical contact.
    I hope that you will enjoy it and forgive me my language mistakes, as usual.
    Legal note: Nope. Still do not own them, because if I did, Downton Abbey would have to be aired at much later time at night, include a lot of more nudity and have no other characters but Charles and Elsie ;-)

    Summary

    This story continues on from the Downton Abbey movie. It’s about Charles Carson and Elsie Hughes and about their life together as they navigate the unchartered territory of his retirement.
    There are a few bumps in the road and there’s a lot to be explored.

    What you will find here is an unedited work in progress. I will be posting the day’s winnings (or losses… I’m fooling no-one here) every day. Comments are always welcome, but please keep in mind that this is a story still in development: it is not a story I am putting on FFN (yet).

    Summary

    AU starting after the last episode of season 6.

    "Life is full of surprises, Mr. Barrow. I know you had your reasons for trying to end your existence, but I ask, please keep fighting. Life may surprise you when you least expect it."

    Hearing these words from Phyllis after he tries to kill himself, Thomas couldn't imagine how right she was.

    Where upon receiving an unexpected visit, Thomas Barrow's life and history change forever, affecting everyone around him.

    For good and bad. Depends on you point of view.

    Summary

    Mary is broken and doesn't see any means of escape. An almighty storm rips through Downton, wreaking havoc on the estate and she goes missing. Will they find her? Will they save her from herself?

    I love the Father/Daughter-like relationship between Mary & Carson & there's lots of it here. This is AU as if the scene they reconcile in S4Ep 1 doesn't happen. I love a bit of angst!

    There are also hints of Chelsie in here!

    Summary

    This was not the butler Richard had been envisioning and clearly he was not what Mr Wilson expected either, for the old man said nothing in response to this greeting, instead looking Mr Barrow up and down. Richard knew Mr Wilson was unimpressed. The man before him did not meet his expectations for a butler; he looked too young, too insolent, too handsome for Mr Wilson to abide. Without uttering a word, Mr Wilson strode past him into the house, with Miss Lawton following, and Richard witnessed a look of shock flitting across the poor butler’s face. As he passed, he gave the man an encouraging smile for he, too, knew what it was like to be at the receiving end of Mr Wilson’s disapproval. He hoped Mr Barrow found his feet again before the arrival of the rest of the household.

    Summary

    A story of beautiful new beginnings, fantastic flower gardens and unlikely friendships.

    This is the story of an eccentric aspiring writer, a charming single father, a kindly librarian and a cantankerous old gardener on their path to finding the family they never knew they wanted.

    (Tom/Sybil) (Mr Carson/Mrs Hughes)

     

    Cause that's when I was introduced to true serendipity
    I knew it when you showed up again
    In the snow, I was always told
    Your heart is where you're home
    And in my mind, after all this time
    I think, ain't life beautiful and strange

    Summary

    The chauffeur and the Earl's daughter were never met to be together - live wasn't a novel after all. Yet, Tom Branson was never just a chauffeur to Sybil Crawley and she was never just the daughter of his employer to him. And in times of war, the 'friendships' that aren't quite appropriate flourish, but happiness is never guaranteed, especially not when the world is at war.

    Summary

    "Phyllis Baxter, I presume?" She was the only woman in the entire pub sitting by herself, tucked away in a corner and mostly hidden behind a menu. And though she'd apparently forgotten the rose that was supposed to signal to him that she was his date for the evening, he hardly needed the flower to deduce she was waiting for him.

     

    "Actually, I prefer Alice Neal."
