    Summary

    Somehow, someway, I'm going to write 31 non-angst, non-whump drabbles for the thomas barrow fandom. Each is going to be sappy and sweet, each is going to follow the prompt list on the Discord thread, with pairings chosen by a random number generator for each chapter.

    tags to be updated accordingly.

    Summary

    After the royal visit, life barely returns to normal at Downton Abbey. A series of marriages, births, and deaths would be difficult enough for the occupants even if there weren't vicious criminals on the loose. Familiar faces from the past come back to haunt the current occupants, and once again Downton plays host to an unwelcome guest. Stuck in the middle of all of it, Thomas Barrow must come to terms with what it means to be a flawed human being, and lay to rest all the demons of his youth.

    Summary

    “If she were selfless, Mary would have set him free. He deserved to live a life far from here, maybe in Ireland or America, where despite his protest he might find someone worthier of him. Perhaps he could even stay in England, running for office or even a political reporter. Branson had a sharp mind, he was fully capable of such a thing... But Mary was selfish. And she would keep him here as long as she possibly could.“

    An AU starting in S4 where Mary grieves Matthew differently, Tom is still the chauffeur, and their friendship forms another way.

    PREVIOUSLY CALLED "THE BOY WHO HELD A STAR"

    Due to a mishap, Thomas finds himself in the town of London on a Friday night at the beginning of the high season. Through some great luck, he discovers a whole world in the undergrounds of London filled with people just like him. The One and Only, a club for people outside of proper society, hosts the most magnificent parties and holds some of the most eccentric people Thomas has ever met. It's a place where he finds friends, and even gets a chance to see a God (at least that's what he calls himself). Captivated by The One and Only's shining star performer, he takes every chance he can to meet this magnificent man. Maybe the man will even see something in him?

    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.
