    Summary

    Retelling our first season (series) of Gentleman Jack (BBC/HBO) in poetry, mostly free verse written in the two-three months after the series began. I try to keep the drama and humor while also expanding on the points of view so that secondary characters get to react to the Ann(e)s.

    I intend to post three days a week--MWF--which should keep us all going until just before Season (Series) Two (finally) starts. (Also, I'm American, so if I slip up, let me know, and if my 'take' on these characters doesn't align with yours, I'm sorry. I am putting this out there as what my watching of the show several times and reading of at least six of the books leads me to thnk.)

    I welcome polite commentary, even--and perhaps especially--if you disagree on my readings/viewings of characters. Key word: polite.

    In the end we must ask ourselves, "In this situation, given who I am and the world as it is, What Would Anne Lister Do?" (WWALD)

    Summary

    Anne Lister is becoming increasingly frustrated by Ann Walker over-exaggerating her aches and pains. During a particularly fraught week, she decides to stop coddling her wife and take a harsher approach. Surely, when Ann stops getting the sympathy and attention she so desperately desires, she'll stop pretending she's in pain?

    Summary

    "See, this is why I didn’t tell you!”

    “You make it sound like I have no self-control, Marian,” Anne sighs tiredly over dinner, distractedly pointing across the table, “Pass me the mashed potatoes, will you?”

    “Sometimes I’m not sure you do!” Marian huffs, continuing to ignore her request, “She’s his teacher, Anne!”

    Summary

    With three handkerchiefs and a chemise missing, Marian is on a mission. Unfortunately, she again winds up being in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees rather too much of the private side of her sister and Miss Walker's relationship.

    Sequel to The New Normal but you can read them in any order.

    Summary

    It was the day when Marian’s world went decidedly off-kilter: Anne was wearing purple and Miss Walker sat at the Shibden Hall breakfast table. And then, an aimless stroll in the woods left Marian witnessing rather more than she had ever planned to see of her sister and her new wife.

    Summary

    "She strides to the end of the corridor and opts for the stairs over the elevator, climbing down the four flights two steps at a time, her long legs carrying her quickly and effortlessly to the bottom and out the back door of the hospital. Her car is parked only yards away, a perk of having worked enough hours to have “Chief” in your title. She tosses her purse onto the passenger seat, powers up the car and checks her phone. Another text, this one causing a flush to pass over her cheekbones. Without a second thought, she steers the Tesla towards downtown, suddenly craving a cocktail with a view. On the radio, an anxious newscaster is at the tail end of reporting on a severe traffic mashup involving a limo and three other vehicles. Multiple injuries, some serious. The location, she notes, within the sphere of Walker."

    Summary

    Starting from the end of the BBC Gentleman Jack series (Suranne Jones & Sophie Rundle). My interpretation/rendition of the couples married life until the end.

    Taking inspiration from Anne's diary about what her life was like from the point of marriage onwards. It's going to be a rollercoaster...

    Summary

    In 1919, after having (accidentally) shoved one of her tenants into a wall and (not so accidentally) tried to run off to join the Air Force, Anne Lister is invited to leave the Shibden estate.

    With few options left for her in Britain, Miss Lister travels to New York, on the journey meeting a fellow Englishwoman - the wealthy heiress, Ann Walker, sent to the US in the hope of finding a doctor who can cure her seemingly endless aches and pains.

    However, Miss Walker’s troubles are quickly attributed to ‘lack of the vote’ by the enigmatic, (and maybe rather snobbish) Miss Lister, (suffering occasionally from the same kind of pain) who puts herself immediately to work curing her friend of both her physical ailments and a lifelong loneliness.

    Get ready for glamour, gangsters, new money and, of course, a budding forbidden romance as Anne juggles rescuing an oil company with securing the hand of the love of her life.

    (Or, the one where Anne Lister was born a century later and had more of a chance.)

    Summary

    After a little research, I found out that Anne Lister died 1840 in a town in present-day Georgia (the country, not the American state), which I believe was colonised by Russia at the time. Honestly, that was one of the most sad things ever, jesus christ. Poor Ann! Either way, den enes död den andres bröd (one man's death, another man's bread), as we say in Sweden, so I came up with this story. It is written from Ann's perspective, and I have tried to be detailed and consistent.

    Summary

    She remembers the first time she sees her.

    She is firmly seated in the Ravenclaw section of the game, watching the players whizz by with Harriet and John Booth, her new friend, squashed on either side of her. It is Slytherin versus Gryffindor and Anne Lister is the one to beat, so much potential for only a fourth year. She is the seeker for the Slytherin team, moving more swiftly than Ann has ever seen anyone play in her lifetime.

    Summary

    Anne is in a bad temper. She has been in a bad temper since she woke up. She scolds Argus and shouts at Joseph and indulges in a particularly long and vicious argument with Marian over the state of the front yard.

    Ann watches it all with creeping dismay. She too woke up not entirely herself this morning, her back aches more than usual and she feels constantly, ridiculously on the edge of tears. She thinks she may be coming down with something. 

    Things soon go from bad to worse.

     

    Shortly after moving into Shibden, Ann gets her period and indulgent schmoop ensues.

    Title is a reference to the euphemism Anne uses for her period (‘cousin’) in her diaries. Inspiration came from a quoted diary entry in Anne Choma’s official companion - “[Ann’s] cousin came this morning, and I was most tender over her.”

    Summary

    Modern AU where Anne is the CEO of Lister & Co, a famous energy-related company, and Ann is an artist trying to distance herself from her relatives. They already saw each other years ago, but that's when they really meet at a business event that their lives truly become intertwined.

    Or just me writing everything that comes to my mind when I think about Anne and Ann.

    Summary

    Steph watched as the man in front of him attempted to sit up before painfully retreating back to a reclined position. He watched as his friend looked down, taking in the bloodied bandages and the cut binding. “I think you owe me at least an explanation.” The doctor finally spoke, urging the man’s fearful eyes to meet his. 

    Lister sighed, a pained noise coming from his white lips. “Good Lord. You know.”
