Because I love the downtonabbeysmeangirls blog so much. I’ve mixed timelines and seasons in this, woohoo!

Also, I have no idea why I made Branson look so angry. (Also made some quick edits and then posted on my Deviantart)

Well done. I especially love Mr Carson’s harrumphy face.  It’s all brilliant, though. Also loved “Desperate wannabe cricket players” and the last set of people - most proper and most deviant.  Beautiful.

After yesterday’s turmoil..and I DO mean turmoil…of spoilers, leadings, suggestions…I have no idea how to feel. But this…*FEELS* OMG!

One of the best moments in the entire first season.

Did anyone else hear him say ‘and my wife, Mrs. Carson’ here? ‘Cause I swear I heard that.


I heard it.

Me, too. Definitely.

This describes my S5 feelings perfectly.

S1E3 - The End of the Evil Limp Corrector

The scene when I knew for sure that Elsie Hughes was my favourite character…

Finally!  Here’s Chapter 8. 

Excerpt:

She opens the door to find him standing at the window, barefoot on the plush carpet. He is in pyjamas and dressing gown, his hands clasped behind his back. He turns to her as she closes the door. He’s washed his hair and left it without pomade; his curls are unruly and he looks… amazing. He no longer looks like a butler, but like her man, her lovely man, at last. Her deep blue eyes meet his, brown edged with grey, capable of such thunder, now filled with tenderness. 

Thank you, as always, to everyone who likes and reblogs and reads and reviews!  And thank you kouw for beta magic and conversations and all the fabulousness.  SO many ideas & formulations in this fic develop out of conversations with kouw.  THANK YOU.

Hopefully Chapter 9 will not be far behind, because a large chunk of it has already been written…

Fontenoy is one of the guest rooms mentioned in Season 4, Episode 2. It’s the one with the fateful house party, and the horrible horrible thing that happens to Anna.  Lady Raven stays in this room, and I picked it because (1) it doesn’t resonate TOO much with the tragedy, since it is not Princess Amelia (the one Dame Nellie stays in),  (2) the other room mentioned is “The Chinese,” and “Meet me in the Chinese” brings up a bunch of Orientalist, imperialist, exoticising nonsense that I don’t want to get into, and (3) I thought it was time to take them out of the Blue Room.  :)

Found this little JIM in The Rainbow!

"Lord and Lady Grantham are still going strong (after he almost cheated on her), but for anyone else over 40, love is either presented as a thing of the past or mocked, such as in the case of Mrs. Crawley (Penelope Wilton) or Martha Levinson (Shirley MacLaine). We can only hope that Mrs. Hughes’ (Phyllis Logan) flirtation with Carson at the beach is not just brought on by heatstroke."

My word, I forgot how close they were standing in this scene. I guess they really missed each other’s company during the season…. :). S1, Ep. 7.
P.S. you can’t tell me that they needed to stand that close to talk about Beryl (who was all the way in the kitchen…).
