|The Yankee Countess|
Author has written 23 stories for Downton Abbey.
An American living in America, but an anglophile at heart. Lover of of all things related to "Downton Abbey" but especially stories involving dashing Irish chauffeur Tom Branson, and the lovely and rebellious Lady Sybil Crawley.
I solomnly swear to give readers Happy Endings, because life can be too cruel at times and we all deserve to be happy, at least when it comes to reading about characters we love.
Also, as a Sybil/Branson shipper in the realm of "Downton Abbey" and all AU universes inbetween, I solomnly swear to NEVER kill them off; no matter the story, no matter the genre; you are guaranteed that they will live in my work, no matter how harrowing the situation seems, you can at least relax in that knowledge. This is my vow, as an author to you, dear reader.
