    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

    Anne Lister's life is crumbling after dealing with an extremely traumatic event. She's depressed, her love life is a disaster, and she just wants to run away and hide. This situation is foreign to her and she doesn't have the skills to navigate her way out of it. Ann Walker to the rescue.

    This is written more like a movie script.

    Summary

    I love the scene when Ann Walker reveals that she was only 14 the first time she saw Anne Lister. Here’s my take on how it might have happened. This story is told from Ann Walker’s perspective and how she reacts to that first sighting.
