A wasted friendship...
So much potential for stories.

A beautiful heartfelt story. Now I wish she didn't die, and this wasn't AU. I always wondered what Sybil would have to say to her old army friend if she ever found out about Jimmy and "the night" (aka the kiss). Heartbreaking, because of course we know how this turns out for "Lady Sybil Crawley Branson". But a super story, and keep up the great work!

This is gorgeous, a really wonderful 'what if' but I'd like to think the house would have stood behind Thomas like it did (more or less) in the program.

I really liked this, it's a really lovely character study, well done!

I always thought that Sybil and Thomas could have had some sort of friendship after working together in the war - if one of the Crawleys was going to be friends with him, it would likely be Sybil (though he and Edith being snarky bffs is a good idea too), since she's so kind and good. I definitely enjoyed this one-shot, especially since Sybil lives, and I liked the name for her daughter too.

I adore this fic, it's really nice to see someone care for Thomas. I really miss Sybil in the programme. I really hope you write more of these, or even a sequel :)

Wonderful piece. I love the last line, "...sometimes friendship, like love, doesn't really give a body any choice in the matter." I could see Sybil reaching out to Thomas, even after everyone's turned their back on him.

How wonderful to see another story from you! I really loved this. Great dialogue and characterization. And of course bonus points for Sybil being alive :)

This is wonderful! Sybil is such a dear, I can totally picture her doing this in the show, if she were still alive. And I like how you've written Thomas, too- not evil, just misunderstood and could use a friend. Which he now has :) Also I thought his confusion over Saoirse's name was quite funny.

This is a wonderful, wonderful story! I love how you characterize Thomas, you did such a great job. And Sybil was fantastic!

This is brilliant. I SO wish Sybil was still alive because I can absolutely see her doing this.

This was so well done! I'd love to see you write more about them!
