    Summary

    As butler of Downton Abbey, Thomas Barrow sees and hears all. You'd think people would have that figured out by now. When Mr. Talbot hires an old friend from the war to work at his car shop, Thomas isn't sure he likes what he sees, or hears, or... feels.

    Actual Summary!

    An utterly self-indulgent after-the-end fixit-fic in which:
    1. Thomas Barrow finds true love with someone who is just as heartbroken and scarred as he is.
    2. The lukewarm reaction to his suicide attempt is addressed
    3. People appreciate Barrow’s genuine attempts to be a better person.
    4. Carson really takes him under his wing in training him to become butler.
    5. Henry Talbot has a more interesting backstory than just “car racing” bc imo that was pretty boring.
