    Summary

    When Thomas Barrow is medically discharged from the Imperial fleet, he has no desire to return to the backwater planet where his family lives. Running short on money and options, he is forced to ask his former employer, Lord Grantham, if he might return to service in his seasonal home in the capital planet of Odin. But things have changed since Thomas left service to go into the fleet, and he does not fit back easily into the old way of things. With a lesser position and new enemies, Thomas finds life on Odin difficult to bear.

    Newly awarded the title of count, Reinhard von Lohengramm finds returning to the capital after being out in space intolerable. He wants nothing more than to be on his flagship, fighting the next battle, with Kircheis by his side. In contrast to that, the court on Odin is a pit of serpents, especially for the formerly middle class Reinhard, who is disliked by the majority of the nobility. When one of his few allies in court, the Baroness Magdalena von Westpfale, demands that he play the social game for his sister's sake, Reinhard reluctantly agrees and tries to join the court life.

    The court season of 486 I.C., in the heart of the dying Galactic Empire, will be the last one of its kind.

    Summary

    Something must have happened to his brain when he'd tried to kill himself, a lack of oxygen or something, and now he was hallucinating all the people who had died at Downton Abbey. Lady Sybil and William and Mr Pamuk, that was just his guilty mind playing tricks on him. The others were just from stories he had heard during his time at the Abbey. The Black Monk and Grey Lady. That must be it, and it was probably only temporary. He only wished the ghosts knew that so they would leave him alone.

    Summary

    MODERN AU. Years before meeting her husband, Anna Bates had been in love with another man. But as soon as she'd told him she was pregnant, he'd paid her a large sum of money to never contact him again, and abandoned her and their daughter forever. Now, years later, she knows this heartache was a blessing in disguise because she is happy with her beloved John, who took in her daughter as his own, and gave her three more children. And then one day something completely unexpected happens: a young boy who claims to be the son of her ex-lover - her teenage daughter's half-brother - shows up on their doorstep, changing their lives forever in the best possible way.
