    Summary

    “Tell me how this works,” Hank says. He tries to find the words despite how hard he is, how wild this is. “Will they—are they going to…grow? Even if I’m me and…you’re you?” It’s not the most eloquent or intelligent way of saying things, but Connor seems to understand him all the same.

    “I don’t know,” he whispers back, raspy voice sounding hopeful and a little bit afraid. “I don’t want to lose them, but they can’t—I can’t let them go until you fill me.” There’s a pause, and then Connor presses his forehead against Hank’s. “I’ve never loved a human before.”

    That makes Hank see stars even at the peak of day.

    Summary

    After being arrested for gross indecency with another male person, Thomas Barrow learns that he has a natural gift which will plunge him into a startlingly different society which exists in parallel with the one in which he has lived his life until now. He’s not entirely sure whether or not that’s a good thing….

    Downton Abbey/Sentinel fusion. (If you are not familiar with the Sentinel, fear not: the note at the beginning of chapter 1 will fill you in on everything you need to know.) This story occurs in the same universe as my other Sentinel/Guide stories, but is intended to work as a standalone.

    Diverges from canon toward the end of series 3 (3x07 UK or 3x06 US)
