    Summary

    As a result of her actions during the riot, Margaret Hale and John Thornton must marry. Margaret is determined to make the most of the unexpected turn in her life.

    Yes, alright, it's one of THOSE fics, loves. (As if North and South didn't have enough of them, I’ve gone and written another one.) Here we have the forced marriage trope but without all the misunderstandings and angst and torture over married "activities". Like my friend DaisyNinjaGirl (Whose similarly inspired story is wonderful. Please read it.) I wanted to answer the question 'What if John and Margaret both decided to be honest and open and just try, for the love of all that's holy, to actually get along...all while properly shagging like normal people?' And here we are.

    This is for anyone who's ever come home from a bloody long day and just want a smutty, happy, North and South story.

    PS. This is already complete. (Yes...I wrote all 19 chapters...aren’t I clever?) So Happy Christmas, loves. I hope you enjoy it!

    Summary

    “I suppose I wondered,” John said, his voice a little too light, “I wondered if anyone had taken the time to tell you—to explain—what happens between a man and a woman when they are married?”
    “Mama left a letter for me.” Her eyes flickered to her dressing table, where some pages lay open. Her chin lifted. “I hope I am not a coward.”

    Summary

    This was my first North and South fanfiction that I wrote almost 12 years ago (cue internal screaming) . It’s a modern retelling of the original Gaskell story. If modern’s not your thing, give me a chance to steal your soul. I’ve made a few converts over the years.

    Go on then. Have a peek. This is where my John and Maggie were born.

    But yeah, it’s old. It’s got warts, and all sorts of problems. I’ve posted this on here before, but for some odd mental insecurities, took it down. A friend (Shout out, TRavine) encouraged me to post it here again. So here we are. I’ll be quick editing through the chapters. Enjoy!

    Summary

    A missing scene from "From the Ashes - Break of Dawn", I just could not resist writing.
    What if aunt Shaw had indeed heard John and Margaret, that night, during her visit to Milton?

    This is basically just smut (sort of). ;)

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.
