    Summary

    "It is not simply that I dislike him! It is that I have seldomly met anyone I liked less!"

    When one careless act sets off a chain of unexpected events, Margaret Hale is forced into a marriage with John Thornton, the very man whom she despises most of all. However, the brooding mill owner entertains some feelings of his own on the matter, and might not quite be the man she has taken him for.

    Summary

    When a new maid arrives at the Thornton household, Mrs. Thornton takes little notice. However, Sibeal's beauty and intelligence ignite an interest in Mrs Thornton that quickly becomes a flame.

    *I firmly believe that Mrs Thornton is a lesbian, I don't know why, but she has really gay energy lol. Maybe it's that she never remarried, even though marriage might have helped pull them out of poverty sooner? This is an interpretation of how this would look, if she came to realise/accept this part of herself, with the added difficulty of class difference, culture and status. Also, this is definitely a work in progress, so... I guess I'll edit later?

    A retelling of Gaskell's classic. Saudade- a nostalgic longing for someone or something that was loved and then lost, with the knowledge that it might possibly never return, aka a love that remains.

    Summary

    An accident at Marlborough Mills leaves John Thornton gravely wounded, and Margaret Hale is the only one able to offer him round-the-clock care. Taking place just before her father leaves for Oxford, Miss Hale is forced to confront her feelings for a man she isn't sure will ever wake up again. Some angst, some fluffy "locked in a room together" HEA goodness, and lots of tragedy to start. Blend of the BBC 2004 miniseries and the book. Please see notes if you wish to avoid descriptions of the incident.

    Summary

    Dixon has always considered Mr. Thornton a pest. So she decides to get rid of him just as she would any other vermin that enters the house. This combines text (in italics) from Elizabeth Gaskell's wonderful book and Sandy Welch's amazing BBC script (neither of which do I own). Reviews and comments are welcome.

    Summary

    Margaret Hale had never envisioned herself moving to the harbour town of Liverpool.
    She did.
    Margaret had never spent time trying to find a rich husband in need of a wife.
    Mr Thornton did spent an awful amount of time falling for the proud indifferent daughter of Mr Hale.
    Margaret Hale was certain she would forever detest merchants and everything Northern.
    She was wrong.

    AKA the Jane Austen-esque regency AU no one asked for. Rating may go up.

    Summary

    flowers have blossomed across john thornton's skin from the time he was thirteen. smatterings of baby's breath, the occasional hydrangea, a buttercup...he'd always written them down, knowing that somewhere out in the world, his soulmate was waiting.

    margaret hale had soulmarks on her skin from the second she was born. she'd always assumed her soulmate was a raucous person, based on the inconvenient, obvious placement of the blossoms that would appear on her, like the echinacea that had exploded across her eye.

    neither of them ever expected to find the other, but here they both are.
