    Summary

    “Mr Barrow is our final assistant head and our Child Protection Officer, Mr Kent. He works with the council and local authorities to keep our students safe, especially our most vulnerable children.”

    Mr Carson spoke more about Mr Barrow’s role, and started the meeting properly, but Jimmy didn’t listen to a word of it. He couldn’t stop staring at the man on the screen in front of him.

      Daisy and Miss Smith had both been very pretty, in their own ways, but Thomas was gorgeous.

     

    Jimmy starts his new job at Downton Academy as Headmaster Carson's Personal Assistant. He figured it would be difficult enough starting a new career in lockdown, but even in his wildest dreams, he could never have predicted meeting Thomas Barrow.

    Summary

    Things are busy for Thomas and Richard. Thomas adopts a cat, the annual cricket match is approaching, an emergency member of staff is needed, Thomas's birthday is coming up, and Thomas has to try and play 'guardian butler' for a young couple who are becoming less circumspect with their relationship. All this on top of much more drama involving Richard and Thomas's friends.

    (Basically this has been a very complicated story to write, so much goes on, but it will come together at the end!)

    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.

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.
