    Summary

    "But — and this is something only Mr. Carson and Mrs. Patmore know — I have family. I have a sister. Rebecca, I call her Becky. I'm sorry I didn't tell you before"

There's only one snag — they have also asked her to invite any family, and she wishes to bring her sister, Becky, to Downton for once. She confides her wish to Thomas and Anna. How do they manage to organize a comfortable and beautiful visit for Becky? What hurdles do they have to face from a society not tolerant towards mental disabilities?

    Summary

    The year is 1947, and as the world rapidly changes in the wake of World War II, the extended Crawley family gathers together in preparation for a London season. Surely scandal cannot resist the temptation of having them all under one roof.
    --------

    "'Now dear,' Cora Crawley began, unfazed, 'shouldn’t you be thinking about your season this year? Your sixth already isn’t that a lovely thought. You mustn’t fret; this family is large enough that you can find someone looking out for you at all times. And really, I always say no woman is truly a debutante until she can also be called a survivor.' Cora waved her knife as she spoke, and Sybbie’s eyes tracked it warily."

    Summary

    "Do you think your little stunt fixed everything? They still hate you. Else would they have asked you to think of what "brought you so low" right after you recovered? Will Carson let you stay on as long as you think he will? He still expects you to leave with another job and smiles.

    He has to wipe away a surreptitious tear. He knows that the voice in his head is being quite right. His colleagues may pity him now, but loving him, respecting him is quite out of the question. And true, he is not expected to stay on here. The air swirls with a miasma of hopelessness, and his wrists begin to sting fiercely, in tandem."

    Thomas reflects on his suicide attempt, and what it means to kill yourself slowly. CW: Suicide Attempt
