    Summary

    After an unexpected encounter in Mr Thornton's study during the dinner party, Margaret finds herself trying to understand her complex feelings for the man who both infuriated and excites her. A mid-canon retelling of North and South with more kissing but the same amount angst and misunderstandings. Possibly might be a bit dodgy timeline wise as I didn’t realise everything happens so quickly after the dinner party..

    Summary

    "A happy family is but an earlier heaven" - George Bernard Shaw

    Set in the world of my completed story A Strange Situation, these are basically plotless fluffy happy oneshots that I need to write to cheer myself up during these awful times. Prompts and requests absolutely welcome! They're in a totally random, non chronological order.

    Most chapters are a U (G?) rating and totally family friendly. Any E rated chapters are fully labelled so you can skip those if not your taste.

    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

    Judy Abbott, Caroline Bingley, and Margaret Hale are roommates at a prestigious women's college in this modern, epistolary mash-up of three classic novels: Daddy-Long-Legs, Pride & Prejudice, and North & South. Other characters from the source material and various Austen properties will make appearances, but the story primarily follows these three women as they navigate college. Ship tags will be added as the story progresses, but most ships will be canon-compliant.

    (Formerly titled "And Crown thy Good with Sisterhood")

    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

    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.
