    Summary

    After the royal visit, life barely returns to normal at Downton Abbey. A series of marriages, births, and deaths would be difficult enough for the occupants even if there weren't vicious criminals on the loose. Familiar faces from the past come back to haunt the current occupants, and once again Downton plays host to an unwelcome guest. Stuck in the middle of all of it, Thomas Barrow must come to terms with what it means to be a flawed human being, and lay to rest all the demons of his youth.

    Summary

    Something must have happened to his brain when he'd tried to kill himself, a lack of oxygen or something, and now he was hallucinating all the people who had died at Downton Abbey. Lady Sybil and William and Mr Pamuk, that was just his guilty mind playing tricks on him. The others were just from stories he had heard during his time at the Abbey. The Black Monk and Grey Lady. That must be it, and it was probably only temporary. He only wished the ghosts knew that so they would leave him alone.

    Summary

    He hadn’t written to Richard yet… it had only been a week since Richard had returned to London and the King and Queen had carried on and Carson had returned to retirement and Thomas got his office back. He didn’t want to seem too eager… Richard had kissed him, Thomas hadn’t even initiated it but still… Thomas felt his old fears lingering in the shadows of his heart. He’d learned his lesson about initiating contact with other men. What if Richard regretted it? Regretted him?

    He took a deep breath and opened the envelope, sliding the letter out, unfolding it carefully. A slanting, purposeful script greeted him, two pages, front and back, all for him, apparently. Thomas gulped and settled in his chair to read.

     

    Thomas and Richard fall in love through letters and Thomas find safety and home in a surprising place. Just pure, unadulterated fluff.

    Summary

    Charlotte Bronte has written: “No mockery in this world ever sounds to me so hollow as that of being told to cultivate happiness. What does such advice mean? Happiness is not a potato, to be planted in mould, and tilled with manure.”
    Thomas Barrow would agree with her, and he has to find his happiness in his own time fighting his demons. Those around him will eventually understand him.

    Summary

    "Andy was stood at the doorway eyes wide, gawking, as anyone would, at the scene in front of him. It is not a common occurrence, after all, to walk in on the Butler of Downton abbey and a royal Valet snogging in an office"

    What would've happened if Andy had been just a minute later to announce the royal departure? What would he see? Who would he tell? It's all well and good, advising to be circumspect, but agreements have to be approved on both ends, and the words "I promise" are so hard to say when two mouths are pressed together.

    (Or tracking how fast information spreads in a house as big as Downton with staff unable to keep their mouths shut about anything. Ever.)
