Alex and Anna's wedding was cute, I liked the sunset and Mary giving orders to make sure her best friends wedding goes well. Matthew investigating Branson was excellent.

On a fupjnal note *tears* Thank you so much for this amazing story. It has it all: intrigue, mystery, romance, passion, thrilling adventures, and emotional and beautiful moments between family, friends, and couples. The regular and extra characters were compelling and with inner life. The modern twist and references to canon were very smart. The descriptions and attention to details are remarkable. I didn't expect Anna and Alex's relationship at the beginning but it was interesting. The development of Matthew and Mary's relationship is the best, they have come through so much and I know their bond can only become stronger. The final conversation was great! I liked that you mentioned Lavinia, Thomas, Erik, and even Charles to leave the sword hanging.

I enjoyed immensely this journey and I'm grateful I found your stories and that you share them with us!

Wow, I'm having separation anxiety! Can't believe this is over. Loved the conversations between Alex and Edith and between Matthew and Sybil. I can't get enough of Matthew and Sybil in this verse! Edith and Bertie, Sybil and Tom, Lavinia, Charles Blake, Thomas, babies Crawley-so much left open. Can I hope for a sequel? Epilogue(s)? One shots?

Loved it! The honeymoon seemed fun, they are so lucky to have a month off. I liked how the season 2 episode 1 conversation turned naughty, who would have thought it could be possible
Matthew and Mary making fun of people serious-dancing is relationship goals. I loved the conversation about being the right time to be together, I think it's accurate. Mary controlling her natural instict to object him and "falling in love and marrying me was the best decision" made me smile.

Excellent portraywl of classic behavior of people in retirement, the mails are so accurate! Robert not having more free time because he didn't work that much but pretending it's a big change it's classic Robert.

Mothers already expecting a baby and moving the attention to Sybil and Edith is anothet classic.

I was surprised by Violet's cursing. Alex's past was troubled and it seems Anna's was difficult too. They are well suited.

I basically screeched when that man turned out to be Erik. But with your arrangement of the chapter I got immediately flooded with MM fluff and I am alright with that. I loved the wedding! I would never have thought that all those characters can come to an understanding when I read the first chapter but here they are – young, happy, ready to face the challenges together. And all of them are family now, which is lovely. Great emphasis on the friendships that formed or got stronger over those two years – especially Matthew with Sybil and Alex with Edith(!). I have to say my imagination in running wild now with those loose ends you’ve left for us. I find really interesting Lavinia working for Matthew’s charity but with Sybil’s insightful eye… yes, the wheels are turning.

Also, congratulations on finishing this story! You had people hanging on your every word until the very end and the work you’ve put into this story, the research, I often wondered – where you in all those places you’ve written about because it all feels so real? This story was a pleasure from the very beginning. Thank you ever so much!

When I first started this story, I wasn't sure about its subject matter-gambling and casinos-which hold no interest for me. Yet, you are such an inventive author, who seems to have done a massive amount of research for this fanfic, that I could not stop reading. Thank you so much for sharing your creative talents. In a modern AU, you kept that DA special love shared by Matthew and Mary alive and strong.

All good things must come to an end! I've really loved this story and the final chapter was no exception. While I am hoping that there might be a sequel, I understand that's a lot to ask, and you're already a prolific writer on this site. Thank you for sharing this story with us! It was a lot of fun to read

I would also like to thank you for this wonderful story. You started this when I graduated from high school and I have been reading in every week. I waited eagerly and anticipated each chapter week by week while in college. Reading this was the highlight of my week and it would give me something to look forward to especially after a stressful and tiring week of school. I have to say that you are one of my favorite authors and I loved this modern AU. It is such a incredible translation of the cannon into modern times. I believe that the characters are represented accurately from the cannon in this modern era, and I absolutely love their interactions with each other and how you focused on each character giving them each a plot line even if it was small. I was really surprised by the relationship you wrote between Anna and Alex in the beginning, but I also believe that they truly complimented each other. But most of all, I fell in love with Mary and Marthew's story and relationship. They are my favorite tv romance couples and I love that you were able to focus more on them giving us an insightful relationship of what could have been in modern times. Thank you again, and I hope to read more from you soon!

I know that you said it was almost over in a PM, but I wasn't expecting it be to now!
Will there be a sequel since there are some unanswered questions?
If there is not going to be sequel I hope that you still have other stories in mind.
I'd hate for you to stop writing fanfiction now that Downton is over.
In any case I loved it. It was such a great story and I will miss the weekly updates.
As always I enjoyed the love scenes between them and Matthew telling Mary that he'll always want her and not just for her body.
I also enjoyed reading Anna and Alex's honeymoon and the conversation between Violet and Isobel.
No matter what she says you can tell Violet thinks of Alex like a son.
Guest chapter 45 . 3/24/2016
Wow! At first I was a little lost for words when reaching the end of the chapter and seeing "fin". I remember while in the middle of reading this final chapter saying, "Wow, this is an eloquently written chapter", but my only concern was that Mary and Matthew were not in it enough. I then got a bit nervous when Lavinia and Erik were introduced. However, I was completely enthralled with Mary and Matthew's final conversation. And after looking back at not only this final chapter, but this saga as a whole, I believe that is was a good time to end it on a good note. You tied up some of the loose strings while keeping others hanging.

I can't believe this story is over! I'm not ready to stay goodbye. please start something new! I adore your stories and I adore this universe ah I'm so sad it's over.

Nice ending to such a fun story to read! And I like that you didn't tidy everything up, there are still potential problems coming up but we know they'll get through them together :-) chapter 45 . 3/24/2016
This ending was perfect! Just how I hoped this story would finish. That said if you bring Lavinia into this universe to try and screw fluffy happy Mary and Matthew OTP I will be so upset! There can be no others while one of them walks the earth! Though I will still read whatever you post, because you are definitely one of my favourite Downton Abbey writers. Til next time, cheers!
Guest chapter 45 . 3/24/2016
Fin? Is this truly the end? Doing a JF - leaving the progression of the characters lives now up to our imagination? Or do you have a possible follow-up for this story?

Will Sybil hire Lavinia - her working for Matthew?
Charles deciding to keep a close eye on Matthew's new non-profit and Crawley Group donations?
What was on the flashdrive that Erik forwarded to Mary? Thomas' curiosity about it all.
You have me and many others hooked on this AU. A few one-shots possible?
