    Summary

    One might mistake Thomas’s first day at the House for the advent of Eros, with the way the maids lit up upon his introduction; in utter contrast, the male servants received him with disdain and eyes green with envy. Little did they know that Thomas skirted beyond the base instincts that compelled most men; his interests - though not yet privy to anyone - would bring upon scandal, excitement and adventure.

    Pre-series featuring Thomas's early days at Downton.

    Summary

    Written as a fill for an old Downton Abbey kink meme prompt:
    “Dr. Clarkson is careless about his new "medicinal, soothing cigarettes" (if you can believe that fine physician would do something as silly as that, after all he is SUCH a good professional) and Miss O'Brien ends up taking one by mistake next time he visits.
    Cue Accidentally High O'Brien doing stupid stuff downstairs and upstairs. Bonus for Daisy and Thomas trying to sneak her quietly back to her room, but her escaping several times. Extra bonus for understanding Cora. O'Brien/Cora is optional.”
    POV characters: Thomas, as well as Cora, Daisy, Anna and Isobel.
    Can be seen as a season 1 Christmas Special of sorts!

    Summary

    Post-Season 3 finale, but before the Christmas Special.

    After The Incident, Thomas knows he cannot resume his life exactly as it was -- those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. Thankfully, traumas have a tendency to get people to reevaluate their lives and want to be better. But how does one change -- and can one change if someone won't give them a chance?
