    Summary

    Thomas parted the leaves and looked down, waiting for his eyes to adjust to the darkness. What he saw inside was most definitely not a fox, or a badger. At first, it looked like a bundle of blankets, off-white and rather ratty looking. But then a tiny, chubby, hand poked out and Thomas’s mouth fell open at the realisation that it was a baby.

    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"

    Mrs. Hughes is retiring, and the Crawleys throw her a retirement party. 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

    Apparently now that Alfred was trying to take this cooking test at the Ritz, he couldn’t be arsed to be a real footman anymore.

    Whenever he wanted to gallivant off to the kitchens, he was allowed to skive off, leaving Jimmy to do everything. And Mr Barrow wasn’t even sympathetic to Jimmy’s plight! If anything he enjoyed it, or at least the results of it, if meals lately were any indication.

    Jimmy could not abide that.

    Summary

    Hello everyone...good to be with you again. I'm guessing that by now, most of you have seen the new movie, so I can give you the story referring to the famous bedroom scene..I love that it was in the movie, but I think that it could be much more interesting than the original, so here is my take on that scene.
    Story summary: Elsie is trying to gain Charles's attention, the night before he goes to France, but he is so preoccupied with other things, that he barely notices her. Fortunately she has a secret weapon ;-)
    Legal note: I do not own any of the wonderful DA characters.

    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
