    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

    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

    This will be a collection of short, smutty fics inspired by passages from Anne’s journal. Obviously I’m going to be taking a lot of liberties but I'll be starting from something she actually recorded as happening. The first chapter is from before she met Ann, but Ann will probably factor in later.

    Summary

    Strange but true: historical F/F romance Gentleman Jack presents the finest ever on-screen depiction of a Slytherin-Hufflepuff relationship, and its curious dynamic. This crossover fic was born of that realisation, transplanting Anne Lister, Ann Walker and other figures from Anne Lister's secret diaries to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy in the early 1830s, and reimagining them as teenagers.

    Summary

    A ficlet series of Anne Lister’s lovers, as seen through the eyes of Hozier songs because I am 98% convinced Anne Lister ghostwrote all his tunes about women in her life.
