    Summary

    Bit of a crossover with LOTR. John on the last day of work at Marlborough Mills, speaking with Higgins. I guess I have to credit J. R. R. Tolkien, Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Sandy Welch for my inspiration here.

    Margaret Thornton is walking through the mill yard on a regular visit to her husband’s office. She is struck in the head by a falling wooden beam and knocked unconscious. She wakes up…and thinks it is the day of the riot, over two years ago. With no memory of their reconciliation and marriage, can Margaret learn to love Mr. Thornton again?

    Summary

    A mid-canon retelling of North and South (some BBC, some original Gaskell), taking up from the aftermath of Mrs. Hale's death. As Margaret processes her grief for her mother, Mr. Thornton's anguish only increases when he learns of a new charming mill-owner who befriends the Hale family. Through misunderstandings and angst, they finally learn to see eye to eye. This is a slow burn to their HEA, with plenty of kissing and fluff along the way. All explicit (i.e. smut) chapters will be labelled accordingly in the beginning notes. I'm posting a new chapter every Saturday :)

    Summary

    Margaret Hale had never envisioned herself moving to the harbour town of Liverpool.
    She did.
    Margaret had never spent time trying to find a rich husband in need of a wife.
    Mr Thornton did spent an awful amount of time falling for the proud indifferent daughter of Mr Hale.
    Margaret Hale was certain she would forever detest merchants and everything Northern.
    She was wrong.

    AKA the Jane Austen-esque regency AU no one asked for. Rating may go up.

    Summary

    Basically the Napoleonic Wars on the backs of dragons, plus all the other normal artillery and stuff. This is where Frederick is involved in a mutiny, but John already knows who he is, and gets forced into helping by his commander, Mr. Bell, the dragon he captains, and Margaret Hale. Bell, of course, knows exactly what he's doing, and maybe if Dixon would leave the two ALONE for a minute, Bell's goddaughter might actually fall in love.

    Summary

    Two years after her mother dies Margaret Hale follows her father, Richard Hale, from Durham, North Carolina to small-town Pennsylvania. Richard's new job teaching at the local community college put him and his daughter in contact with John Thornton, a local entrepreneur looking to finish his bachelor's degree.

    Margaret, having just transitioned from a high-profile criminal defense attorney to public defender, thinks she has the world figured out. She knows the current American criminal justice system is broken, the vast majority of the world's evils come from capitalism, and John Thornton is definitely an ass.

    John Thornton would rather eat glass than listen to the privileged and out-of-touch daughter of his new professor explain to him how the world works. At least, that's what he'd say if anyone asked.

    ---

    This is a modern retelling of Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South set in America, all characters belong to her.

    Summary

    Post credit scene for North and South in which the characters actually have to resolve the mess they've made - with one another and in their communities - instead of just fading into black...

    Summary

    Margaret self-reflects after the strike and realizes she cares for Mr. Thornton in a way that is quite possibly not very platonic whatsoever.
    How does the story unfold differently with this startling realization?
