    Summary

    After the royal visit, life barely returns to normal at Downton Abbey. A series of marriages, births, and deaths would be difficult enough for the occupants even if there weren't vicious criminals on the loose. Familiar faces from the past come back to haunt the current occupants, and once again Downton plays host to an unwelcome guest. Stuck in the middle of all of it, Thomas Barrow must come to terms with what it means to be a flawed human being, and lay to rest all the demons of his youth.

    Summary

    That Downton Abbey fanfiction where the author just builds up complex backstories for our beloved characters with heavy helpings of flashbacks, and mixes it with the tiniest bit of canon-divergence to bake an embarrassingly self-indulging slow-burn angsty romance.
    Oh, and this time, Jimmy Kent is defenitely queer.

    "Suddenly, a man came in, and it seemed like the world had somehow, inexplicably titled on its axis.
    He was elegant and tall, clad in a nice suit. He was very pale, with jet black hair, slicked properly. Beautiful.
    He moved sublimely gracefully, with a cigarette dangling off his fingertips. His eyes were a clear grey, and Jimmy felt his gaze piercing through him, like swords. He was eyeing him with what Jimmy felt like was appreciation, and something akin to desire.
    Jimmy felt his cheeks warm up and forced himself to smile but his mouth felt very dry all of the sudden.
    "Who's that?" the man said."

    Summary

    (Set (vaguely) sometime between WW1 and Spanish Flu, and it's winter. And Sybil hasn't done a runner yet. And Thomas is there. And yeah, to be honest I have no idea when or where this fits in the context of canon, but it's somewhere in there.)

    Cora suffers a fall on some ice. O'Brien is disturbed by the similarity to past events. Cora is given a cocktail of drugs to ease the pain, which also lower her inhibitions. O'Brien is at hand to apply some ointment to strained muscles on Her Ladyship's back. Things fall into place, and then fall out of place.

    The results are distressing for all involved.
