Downton Abbey - old light

(This was very much inspired by Samson by Regina Spektor - I originally intended to write some sort of "you are my sweetest downfall" kind of philosophical angsty scribblings [because that is how I roll] but then I found myself latched onto the lines "beneath the stars came falling on our heads/but they're just old light" which is how the title came into being. A little light stargazing, Sybil/Branson)

Downton Abbey - fool (for you)

(This one has been posted at the pit of voles, but I like it, so it's going up ~everywhere~ - it may even be my first AO3 Downton fic, oh my! Written entirely on Valentine's Day, so maybe it's just a point of pride... And I'd say this was the closest I'd got to actual fluff for these two. Sibyl/Branson, I think of them as Sybil/Branson, not Sybil/Tom... does that say something about me?, Valentine's Day 1914 [mostly])

Downton Abbey - True Love

(Oh hey, it's that couple I can't decide if I ship or not. Matthew/Mary, vaguely set at the end of the party, after That Announcement [I set a lot of fics then...?] I quite often review Matthew/Mary fics with the caveat that if what they've written happens, then I could ship Matthew/Mary, but I still don't - that make sense? I don't know, it's late, I'm tired - and that's sort of where this came from... Writing the way that I could ship it. Which I'm hoping comes across here; I'm hoping it works! There's barely a hint of Sybil/Branson; what has become of me?)

Downton Abbey - Moments

(LET ME REVEAL THE PROCESS BEHIND THIS ONE: I see a fic on the Downton Abbey comm which is Sybil/Matthew, I get excited, said fic is flocked. I get irked because I want to read me some Sybil/Matthew goodness, and then I end up writing some. [incidentally, fic was indeed goodness and worth the wait :3] Except that it isn't that Sybil/Matthewy, it's more... friendship with a hint. Potential Sybil/Matthew. Because Sybil/Branson is my OTP and I have great difficulty writing stuff that isn't my OTP XD Set roughly during the garden party, after Matthew and Mary's conversation but before the news is announced.)

Downton Abbey - Five Proposals and One Wedding

(I've never written any of these 5 + 1 fics before - well, one, but it's Jupiter Palladium and basically made of spoilers, so. The idea for this one occurred to me last night, so I ended up scribbling down the first couple and theorising the next few. For once I actually set myself a word limit - each of them is 100 words, which was bloody difficult... Sybil-centric, because I love her, oh yes I do.)
