    Summary

    1944. Britain and its allies are at war with Germany.
    Thomas Barrow, still a butler at Downton Abbey, is having an ordinary day until he receives a letter with a handwriting he hasn't seen in nearly twenty years.
    It's Jimmy Kent who wrote him from the trenches in France, willing to pick their friendship up again. As much as Thomas fights it, he immediately finds himself falling back in love with the former footman who seems to have finally grown up.

    This is going to be a letter-fic that will mainly consist of the letters Thomas and Jimmy send each other. Jimmy's first letter is received by Thomas in 1944, just a couple of weeks after D-Day. Later on I might switch to a third person narrator every now and then.

    Summary

    Thomas had always been the children’s favourite, offering them piggy-back rides and taking part in their tea parties, so he had got to know them quite well over the years; as a result, he instinctively knew when something was bothering them.

    Summary

    “I don’t understand why we’re having fireworks on the fifth of November.” Branson sighed.
    “Because, dear chap, it’s traditional.” Lord Grantham had replied.
    “But it’s anti-Catholic.” Branson protested. “At least promise me that you won’t burn a Guy.”
    “My dear fellow, we’re having a traditional Bonfire Night and that’s final.”

    Summary

    Halloween 1926:

    Moonlight fell across Downton Abbey, glinting off of windows and giving the house an eerie glow. Though the family may have retired for the night, the Servants Hall was still a hive of activity.

    Summary

    Mary is worldlier than Lavinia is; worldly and haunted-eyed, calm and still and deadly as a snake. It is her comparative weakness that tempts Mary, she thinks; her weakness and the thought of her with Matthew. Mary may not consciously decide to, but she wants to ruin Lavinia for him.

    Honestly, she is quite blasé about the whole thing, which helps to set Lavinia at ease with it all.

    And, well— it’s not as if she didn’t go to boarding school, after all. She had known the dark as well as her comrades as a source of privacy and soft, relatively safe pleasures. It wasn’t as if there were any real danger in any of it— they were all heiresses to some small fortune or another, with bright futures ahead of them. They couldn’t exactly ruin those futures for each other with some secretive caresses after the lights were put out.

    (AKA, the one where Mary decides to seduce Lavinia Swire and then they end up as Gays In Love, with mixed yet sexy results.)

    Summary

    After Thomas' suicide attempt, we didn't get to see much of what he did, or what happened, that helped him to eventually feel better. It's unlikely he got any professional therapy, but it seems to me that something had to happen that helped him to change. This is my take on what happened--the work he did with himself, and the interactions he had with the people who care about him--that helped him to eventually decide to go on living, and in particular in this story, how he got back to work.

    I'll add more character and relationship tags as I go.
