    Summary

    It’s April of 2832 and in the mining town Ganymede One, on the third moon of Jupiter, life is hard and dangerous. Anne of clan Lister wants to open a new promethium mine and to fund it, she is forced to sign an Arrangement with the Rawson-Walker clan. The catch? In accordance with ancient Ganymedean bylaws, the Arrangement stipulates a marriage to seal the pact between the clans.

    Ann, formerly of clan Walker, finds herself at Shibden Hall on Ganymede, married to its dark and enigmatic owner. What will her life be like in this arranged marriage? And why does she feel both frightened and strangely curious about the way her new wife looks at her?

    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

    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

    It is summer in Paris, and the bright fall of the morning sun across Mariana's face is not so much what wakes her as is the slowly growing awareness that Anne is no longer in their bed.

    Summary

    "Anne breathed in her scent- citrus and soap. She smirked to herself as she thumbed through her book, more focused on the way the woman’s small hands twisted nervously in her hair, legs bouncing, than the words on the page. No ring, she mused, eventually giving up and closing the book. Anne noted a small rainbow flag was pinned to the backpack that she had pushed under the seat in front of her. A smile crept across Anne’s face and she leaned her head back into her seat. She didn’t usually feel so pulled to strangers, but the way this girl bit her lip as she lifted her perfectly sculpted neck to look around...Anne felt undone."

    OR The one where Anne and Ann meet on an airplane.

    TW: Ann struggles heavily with anxiety and depression.

    Summary

    A gruesome murder is discovered in Soho. Detective Constable Ann Walker of the Metropolitan Police, Criminal Investigation Department, is on the case with her partner Sam Washington. As facts get uncovered, most circumstantial evidence seems to incriminate a Dr Anne Lister as the potential killer. But why is DC Walker so reluctant to pursue that lead?

    -----

    Modern AU, police procedural with romance. Or romance with a dash of procedural? Both, I guess. Slow burn with eventual smut (but of course). Some of the content is about fetishes but the sex ain't weird, I promise.

    The story is now complete.

    Summary

    "Her heart pounds in her chest when she sees the way Ann looks up at her – like she wants her comfort—no, her approval. She aches to close the distance between them, to hold her, to make her stop shaking as much as she is. But how can she? The weight of her conscience screams at her, telling her she shouldn’t."

    The one where Anne Lister is a Psychology Professor and Anne Walker is her graduate student. It's a forbidden romance, but they just can't help themselves. Who am I kidding-- I just can't help myself. Forgive me!

    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

    Ann observes – studies her.

    The mystery woman grabs one book from the shelf and fingers through it quickly. Even from the short distance, Ann can see her hands are strong yet feminine, a professional shade of dark red polish on her short, manicured nails. She presses one lightly against the binding as she reads – impatient yet focused – and Ann watches every tap and twitch of them as they slide along the book's spine.

    “We share a name.”

    “Do we? Well imagine that."

    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!”
