This story starts the night after Lavinia's funeral. Mary discovers that, contrary to what she always had imagined, she is not a lost cause. All she has to do is looking beyond the walls of Downton and discovering that, indeed, she and Richard make a good team, in difficult times and in happy moments as well. In this AU, Christmas Special never happens.
