    Summary

    She'd measured him, helped him choose a style and a fabric from the vast collection she had… When it was finally done, she had helped him step into it, done the buttons up at the back, and given him a surprise kiss on the cheek, resting her hands on his shoulders from behind him as he looked in the mirror.

    Thomas is caught crossdressing and the downstairs react. It takes a near tragedy for them to realise how much their words can hurt.

    Summary

    Anna had less of a relationship with Thomas than one might expect, given that they’d worked together for the better part of three years.

    Exactly what it says on the box.

    Summary

    Robert Crawley could count on one hand the number of people with whom he had been totally honest about who he was – what he was – and... frankly, even as the years wore on, that fact sometimes made it difficult to be as happy with his life as he would've liked. At least he was surrounded in his home by people who understood all of those feelings.

    Halloween 1926:

    Summary

    After Thomas' suicide attempt, we didn't get to see much of what he did, or what happened, that helped him to eventually feel better. It's unlikely he got any professional therapy, but it seems to me that something had to happen that helped him to change. This is my take on what happened--the work he did with himself, and the interactions he had with the people who care about him--that helped him to eventually decide to go on living, and in particular in this story, how he got back to work.

    I'll add more character and relationship tags as I go.
