Very late review, I'm sorry, but I didn't want to miss the chance to tell you how much I loved this chapter. There's a quiet kind of contentedness about it that after all the angst, all the decisions to make things better really is heart warming. Love M/M visiting York for fun, together, visiting a church (ha, nice call back to the Edith/Matthew visit both in canon and in your story as well as to their strange honeymoon, at least it was for me and it was so BEAUTIFUL to see the two of them together now, enjoying the visit as well as each other company!).
I can't wait for the next update :)

This was a really lovely chapter, I like the slow build of trust and comfort its really beautiful!
I loved the bit about not feeling like his wife it was so sad and true and the end scene was just wonderful! can't wait for the next chapter!

Mary and Matthew paint the town...Gah I love it ;)
They are seriously so shy and adorable and awkward, it's so lovable I don't even know how else to describe it.
They're moving forward though, slowly but surely. Loved when Matthew wouldn't let Mary hide her feelings from him. It wasn't that long ago that he would have let it go to spare themselves more discomfort.
And that kiss (almost!) was so aching and beautiful and hot at the same time. Can't wait for more

Absolutely adores this chapter!
| Paty chapter 16 . 7/31/2012
Awwwww, they're finally getting there! Now they're both afraid, which is understandable, but they're anxious to be in each other's arms. They deserve to be happy. Mary is really sorry abou everything and Matthew needs to let it go already and give her another chance. Hopefully we will get a KISS in the next chapter! A few more weeks until more episodes! :D :D oh, and I agree with you (saw your post on tumblr) - it's obvious that the argument is before the wedding! And I'm sure it won't be nothing. They'll be okay by the end of the episode! Love, Paty.

I have broken english tongue: So only a few words. Very nice composition, like a classical suite. every movement has ist own theme, there is some change of dynamics and some difference in the instrumentation and aaawww, I can only cry DACAPO !

Beautiful as always, my dear! The ending scene gave me goosebumps! :P I absolutely adored it, and it was well worth the wait. :) But please...update soon!

This chapter is adorable! It felt so easy and charming and the feelings are so accurate for a hesitant new start! I just want to keep reading! :)

"What is it, my dear?"
Died. DIED. Flailed, wanted to cry. This is so wonderful... I love how they're almost starting from scratch. Oh, how sad that it's "Mary's child" but then how he's thinking of her as "Mary"- and they're able to be so honest with each other- you're laying the foundation for something that will probably destroy us all in the best way possible. The heartbreaking sweetness and care they're taking with each other now.. cannot wait to see how this develops.. "Mary's child" still killing me. Whatever we can do to keep the writer's block away!

So happy that they had such a wonderful day! :) Looking forward to the next one!

Another great Chapter... Loved the time in York. One of my favourite places to visit. I felt like I was there with them wondering the cobbled streets and lookin in all the unusual and entertaining shops and narrow laneways. Thanks for taking us all on a trip through a great place to visit. Oh, bye the way the rest of the chapter was great as well!

SIGH. Such a delicate, complex portrait of a marriage you continue to weave. :D I LOVE the progression - from Matthew being concerned that Mary isn't home (to subtle hints that Matthew himself has perhaps been hiding away at work) to their DATE! :) Mary's fussing over her appearance was positively charming and Matthew's nervousness was just...aww! And the city of York just comes alive through your words (and theirs - some SERIOUSLY excellent witty banter! :) I squealed delightedly over M/M'S CHURCH VISIT (AHH!) and their luncheon hand-holding (and "properly married," :( ) You've painted a beautiful picture of a married couple trying to get reacquainted - it's daring and brave, and absolutely OUTSTANDING. OMG and the ENDING - no date would be complete it! :D I cannot WAIT to see how they continue to progress and heal...it's utterly spellbinding to watch them. :) PLEASE update soon! :D

I nearly passed out from anticipation when I saw the story had been updated.
I'm glad you decided to get them, on their own, out of claustrophobic Downton to help them clear their heads and move things forward.
To think I was in York just a week ago, I'll have to go back on a sort of pilgrimage!

Aaaaahhhhh! Yoooorrrrrrrk! :D I LOVE LOVE LOVE that he's trying not to think of her as anything other than Mary, just her as her own person and not as any of the other roles that she fills. Aaahh and Isobel! Trying not to be offended that his attention has shifted to Mary. Oh but MATTHEW spilling his tea because he's all excited and nervous about seeing her! AND MARY...so happy that she thinks he's just sharing a bit about his day with her. He's not shutting her out anymore, and even that is more than she's expected. OH BLESS THEM. And she's dressing to impress! I loved that exchange with Anna because she obviously knows that they're sleeping apart, and she'll have seen them rebuilding the tentative friendship, and it's almost like something a friend would say when you're trying to impress someone and they're telling you that you look fine. :)
And the accidental touching on the train, and later with their hands in the pub...they're so awkward and not sure how to be with each other, because I think it would be SO easy for them to slip back into how they were before, and they wouldn't even think about it, but that would only confuse things further. So yes, awkwardness is good because they need to learn how to be friends properly and not be sneaking kisses like they did before. :P Oh but the presents...I do love that.
Also, did not know that about the Minster being smaller than Manchester Cathedral! :P But oh their little...misunderstanding, I suppose, it would. It could have easily escalated and turned things very sour, but that Mary told him *why* and was honest about it is a step in the right direction. Erm...interrupting for SHIRTSLEEVES ROLLED UP. YES. AND THE KISS. So tender, and beautiful and just absolutely perfect. *Happy sigh* :D

Great chapter. This story really is so thoughtfully constructed and well paced. I know you say you've had writer's block, but I would never guess it from the flow of this chapter. Can't wait until the next update.
