    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

    Sotheby is visited by Nelis Skellig, his ex-colleague - at Downton Abbey.

    However, things become ugly when he explains why he resigned from his job at Dreamland...

    Rated M for violence, threats, name-calling and swearing.

    Note: This story contains a couple of homophobic slurs that are used by Skellig against Thomas, which I would never use in real life (I found this part very difficult to write.)

    Summary

    Hello all. I'm really happy today, celebrating the fact, that I'm just writing my thirtieth story. Yay for me! When I started my fanfiction adventure, I would have never thought, that I will go that far..Luckily, I did. Because of my little jubilee, I decided to do a little experiment, that was in my head for quite a while. Those of you who read my stories regularly, know, that I usually write in canon, giving Charles and Elsie similar attributes, as they have in the series. It is going to be different this time. Totally different. I suspect that not all of you may like it, but I'm hoping you will. This is very experimental story and I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this. Summary: I want to introduce you to the Crawley family and their servants, but if you think it's cliché and you already know them well by now, fasten your seat belts, because you ain't seen nothing yet.

    Summary

    AU where Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes are husband and wife throughout the series. Set during the third season.
    Mrs. Hughes discovers a lump and she makes a plan.
    PART II: Carson worries about his future and his families as he realizes they're all getting older.
    Disclaimer: There is outdated language in this story when referring to people with disabilities and POCs, so just be mindful of that going in. It’s very mild, but I think a disclaimer still should be used.

    *Important Update: I've decided to end this story at chapter 10. I'm saving chapter 11, in case I decide to do a part 2 for this, but for now I think it best to end this story here. Thank you all again for the wonderful comments you've made on this fic.

    Summary

    Jest słoneczny poranek, żwir chrzęści pod nogami, ze wszystkich stron otacza mnie intensywna zieleń i pachnie, jakby dopiero co padało. Brakuje mi odrobinę, charakterystycznych dla Londynu, smrodu i duchoty, do których zdążyłem się już przyzwyczaić. Downton Abbey widać jak na dłoni z miejsca, w którym stoję, więc powoli ruszam w tym kierunku, dopiero teraz rozumiejąc słowa kamerdynera: “Nie ma potrzeby, by po pana posyłać, panie Kent. Jestem pewien, że jeśli tylko nie pomyli pan stacji i wysiądzie na właściwej, trafi pan bez najmniejszego problemu.”
    Nie spieszę się. Pociąg przyjechał zgodnie z rozkładem, więc mam jakiś kwadrans na dotarcie do pałacu. Myśli znów wędrują do minionych zdarzeń i serce ściska mi z bólu na myśl, że tak łatwo zostawiłem wszystko za sobą, nawet się nie oglądając. Zamieniam wspaniałe, bogate w wydarzenia, londyńskie życie na wiejską sielankę. Zamiast usługiwać elitom, żyć ich życiem, plotkować, flirtować, zawierać ciągle nowe znajomości, chodzić do pubów, grać w karty, włóczyć się ze znajomymi, będę spędzać czas ze służbą, patrząc wciąż na te same twarze i w samotności czyścić wiekowe pamiątki.
    Wmawiam sobie, że tak będzie lepiej, że to jedyne logiczne rozwiązanie.

    Summary

    She'd measured him, helped him choose a style and a fabric from the vast collection she had… When it was finally done, she had helped him step into it, done the buttons up at the back, and given him a surprise kiss on the cheek, resting her hands on his shoulders from behind him as he looked in the mirror.

    Thomas is caught crossdressing and the downstairs react. It takes a near tragedy for them to realise how much their words can hurt.
