    Summary

    "It is not simply that I dislike him! It is that I have seldomly met anyone I liked less!"

    When one careless act sets off a chain of unexpected events, Margaret Hale is forced into a marriage with John Thornton, the very man whom she despises most of all. 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.

    Summary

    "...At that point in time, there was not much there to remind people of the man who had, so long ago, initiated the construction of this building, according to plans he had drawn up himself. A man with a vision, and the burning ambition to put it into action, and establish the very first cotton mill on the European continent."

    All fiction aside, this is the true story of John Thornton, the man who inspired the character in Elisabeth Gaskell's North and South.

    Summary

    When a new maid arrives at the Thornton household, Mrs. Thornton takes little notice. However, Sibeal's beauty and intelligence ignite an interest in Mrs Thornton that quickly becomes a flame.

    *I firmly believe that Mrs Thornton is a lesbian, I don't know why, but she has really gay energy lol. Maybe it's that she never remarried, even though marriage might have helped pull them out of poverty sooner? This is an interpretation of how this would look, if she came to realise/accept this part of herself, with the added difficulty of class difference, culture and status. Also, this is definitely a work in progress, so... I guess I'll edit later?

    Summary

    This is an attempt at a happier ending to the Great Exhibition scene between John & Margaret. This combines text (in italics) from Sandy Welch's amazing BBC script and Elizabeth Gaskell's wonderful book (neither of which do I own). Reviews and comments are welcome.

    Summary

    A retelling of Gaskell's classic. Saudade- a nostalgic longing for someone or something that was loved and then lost, with the knowledge that it might possibly never return, aka a love that remains.

    Margaret Hale returns to Helstone to live a peaceful life but instead has to move to the smoky town of Milton. An encounter with the nouveau-riche, hardened mill master John Thornton with traumas of his own lead to conflicting opinions, intensified by a growing attraction between the two.

    Summary

    An accident at Marlborough Mills leaves John Thornton gravely wounded, and Margaret Hale is the only one able to offer him round-the-clock care. Taking place just before her father leaves for Oxford, Miss Hale is forced to confront her feelings for a man she isn't sure will ever wake up again. Some angst, some fluffy "locked in a room together" HEA goodness, and lots of tragedy to start. Blend of the BBC 2004 miniseries and the book. Please see notes if you wish to avoid descriptions of the incident.
