    Summary

    Modern AU. Margaret Hale finds herself in need of a fake boyfriend for her cousin’s destination wedding and it seems that only one man is up to the task. The only problem is she hates John Thornton and he hates her. ( A fake dating trope for N&S because why not? This story world needed one. Crossposted on ff ) Playlist here ->

    Summary

    After Christmas, Margaret is on the way back to Milton. Or she would be, if the weather hadn't taken a turn for the worse. She isn't thrilled to share this predicament with John Thornton, of all people.
    The world has a funny way of sending them both exactly what they need, though.

    (Happy new year, loves. This is me rising to two challenges: 1. write the modern AU you wish to see in the world, and 2. give at least someone a soft and hopeful ending to 2021.)

    Summary

    The day of the dinner party Edith attributes Margaret's redness and whiteness to the heat but the actual cause of both color changes is a certain someone. This combines text (in italics) from Elizabeth Gaskell's wonderful book and Sandy Welch's amazing BBC script (neither of which do I own). Reviews and comments are welcome.

    Summary

    Margaret Thornton is walking through the mill yard on a regular visit to her husband’s office. She is struck in the head by a falling wooden beam and knocked unconscious. She wakes up…and thinks it is the day of the riot, over two years ago. With no memory of their reconciliation and marriage, can Margaret learn to love Mr. Thornton again?

    Rated E for only Chapter 9, which you can choose to skip if that's not your cup of tea!

    Summary

    Margaret Hale had never envisioned herself moving to the harbour town of Liverpool.
    She did.
    Margaret had never spent time trying to find a rich husband in need of a wife.
    Mr Thornton did spent an awful amount of time falling for the proud indifferent daughter of Mr Hale.
    Margaret Hale was certain she would forever detest merchants and everything Northern.
    She was wrong.

    AKA the Jane Austen-esque regency AU no one asked for. Rating may go up.

    Summary

    Basically the Napoleonic Wars on the backs of dragons, plus all the other normal artillery and stuff. This is where Frederick is involved in a mutiny, but John already knows who he is, and gets forced into helping by his commander, Mr. Bell, the dragon he captains, and Margaret Hale. Bell, of course, knows exactly what he's doing, and maybe if Dixon would leave the two ALONE for a minute, Bell's goddaughter might actually fall in love.

    Summary

    a.k.a. In which John Thornton does a great deal of kissing.

    If the missive had met its mark: What would have been if the stone had struck John Thornton instead of Margaret Hale on that fateful day at Marlborough Mills? A tense, angst-ridden, mid-canon, slow-burn HEA Retelling of North and South from the day of the riot, both book and TV miniseries based. *COMPLETE* (epilogues to follow)

    Summary

    Two years after her mother dies Margaret Hale follows her father, Richard Hale, from Durham, North Carolina to small-town Pennsylvania. Richard's new job teaching at the local community college put him and his daughter in contact with John Thornton, a local entrepreneur looking to finish his bachelor's degree.

    Margaret, having just transitioned from a high-profile criminal defense attorney to public defender, thinks she has the world figured out. She knows the current American criminal justice system is broken, the vast majority of the world's evils come from capitalism, and John Thornton is definitely an ass.

    John Thornton would rather eat glass than listen to the privileged and out-of-touch daughter of his new professor explain to him how the world works. At least, that's what he'd say if anyone asked.

    ---

    This is a modern retelling of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South set in America, all characters belong to her.
