    Summary

    Anne can feel herself moving into unfamiliar territory, her thoughts and emotions barreling towards the precipice of…dare she even think it…monogamy? In spite of her built-in guardrails, the barriers she put up after all her trials and tribulations with Mariana, it’s a risk she’s willing to take. She likes Ann. A lot.

    **********

    Anne Lister bets her new neighbor that she can make a woman fall madly in love with her in 30 days or less. But in this case it’s not just any woman…it’s Ann Walker.

    An attempt at fun, humor, and some sexy stuff. And there’s some corporate takeover stuff in here, too.

    Just take a chance and read it 😎. You might be surprised.

    Nobody dies!

    Summary

    Anne’s mouth dropped open. She felt tears welling in the corners of her eyes.  She had to find Ann. To stop her from doing what she planned. She didn’t know where she was and couldn’t slow her mind down so she could think where Ann could be so she could go to find her.

    She raced down the stairs and was out the front door before anyone could ask where she was going. It was going to be hard to find her. She knew it only took her 25 minutes to walk to Crow Nest but that could be 25 minutes too long. She may have done the deed already and Anne knew she couldn’t live without the woman who held her heart in her hands. Why should she have to do that?

    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

    Ann recognizes her as soon as she speaks. Miss Lister hasn’t changed much since she last saw her, which was years ago, when Ann was 18. Her sharp, tan face is as handsome as she remembers and her voice still has that low, smooth tone.
    Yes, she remembers Miss Lister very well, and she knows that her attraction to the older woman hasn’t shifted in any way. In fact, if her warming face weren’t indication enough, her draw to Miss Lister has only increased upon this miraculous meeting.

    Summary

    I love the scene when Ann Walker reveals that she was only 14 the first time she saw Anne Lister. Here’s my take on how it might have happened. This story is told from Ann Walker’s perspective and how she reacts to that first sighting.
