    Summary

    She thought she would never see her again. But yet, there she sits, rocking back and forth in the rocking chair, a plaid shawl draped over her broad shoulders. She was writing in a beaten up leather notebook, a focused intensity as she scribbled furiously. Even from a distance, Ann can see that she still has the fountain pen that Ann gifted to her so long ago. She clutches weakly at her throat in a bid to prevent a sob. After all these years, she only had to look at her and all the old feelings return to her.

    "Anne," Ann whispers softly.

    In her early 50s and diagnosed with terminal cancer, she spends the rest of her limited days at a hospice. Ann Walker was certain that she was to pass away having not resolved her past mistakes. One day, her one wish was granted.

    Summary

    In 1919, after having (accidentally) shoved one of her tenants into a wall and (not so accidentally) tried to run off to join the Air Force, Anne Lister is invited to leave the Shibden estate.

    With few options left for her in Britain, Miss Lister travels to New York, on the journey meeting a fellow Englishwoman - the wealthy heiress, Ann Walker, sent to the US in the hope of finding a doctor who can cure her seemingly endless aches and pains.

    However, Miss Walker’s troubles are quickly attributed to ‘lack of the vote’ by the enigmatic, (and maybe rather snobbish) Miss Lister, (suffering occasionally from the same kind of pain) who puts herself immediately to work curing her friend of both her physical ailments and a lifelong loneliness.

    Get ready for glamour, gangsters, new money and, of course, a budding forbidden romance as Anne juggles rescuing an oil company with securing the hand of the love of her life.

    (Or, the one where Anne Lister was born a century later and had more of a chance.)

    Summary

    The small smile playing across her lips sparked into her eyes as she bent and kissed the inside of Anne’s wrist. The mirrored gesture was incomparably endearing to Anne.
    “Miss Walker,” Anne said in a firm, low voice. “You’re trying to scandalize me.”

    Summary

    With the scarf firmly in her grasp, she steps forward and drapes it gently over the young woman's shoulders, then ties a loose knot at her collarbone to secure it. “There you are,” Anne hums, twisting her finger around the fringe on one end of the scarf. “Good as new.”

    Tossing another "thank you" quickly over her shoulder, the beautiful stranger turns on her heels and disappears down the block, Anne's last sight of her being a rush of curls and the ripple of her scarf as it blows lightly behind her in the wind.

    Summary

    Aged fourteen, she was abducted, subjected to a myriad of unexplained experiments and now she no longer knows her own name. Patsy has no idea what's about to happen, how her life will change, drastically, for the second time.

    Neither does Delia. She thought she would be a nurse, fix people up and send them on their way but that can never happen, now.

    *Warning for graphic and dark content*

    [From chap 8, this is a Gentleman Jack crossover but still, predominantly CtM (starting a spin off for a more GJ centred spin off.]
    Title comes from the song by Blanco White.

    Summary

    Retelling our first season (series) of Gentleman Jack (BBC/HBO) in poetry, mostly free verse written in the two-three months after the series began. I try to keep the drama and humor while also expanding on the points of view so that secondary characters get to react to the Ann(e)s.

    I intend to post three days a week--MWF--which should keep us all going until just before Season (Series) Two (finally) starts. (Also, I'm American, so if I slip up, let me know, and if my 'take' on these characters doesn't align with yours, I'm sorry. I am putting this out there as what my watching of the show several times and reading of at least six of the books leads me to thnk.)

    I welcome polite commentary, even--and perhaps especially--if you disagree on my readings/viewings of characters. Key word: polite.

    In the end we must ask ourselves, "In this situation, given who I am and the world as it is, What Would Anne Lister Do?" (WWALD)

    Summary

    "See, this is why I didn’t tell you!”

    “You make it sound like I have no self-control, Marian,” Anne sighs tiredly over dinner, distractedly pointing across the table, “Pass me the mashed potatoes, will you?”

    “Sometimes I’m not sure you do!” Marian huffs, continuing to ignore her request, “She’s his teacher, Anne!”

    Summary

    With three handkerchiefs and a chemise missing, Marian is on a mission. Unfortunately, she again winds up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees rather too much of the private side of her sister and Miss Walker's relationship.

    Sequel to The New Normal but you can read them in any order.
