Ugh wasn't this just the best thing ever?
How beautiful, I'm so glad they have their little girl. And I love the Banna touches, you've painted them so well. John and Elsie as siblings works incredibly well too.

Just when I think it can't get any better IT DOES. I blame this story for my recent addiction to CarsonxHughes AU. They really do work in any situation, in any setting, because they are so clearly the perfect couple. As always I love your writing style. It's so clean and flows so beautifully. Loved it.

Awwww an astounding wonderful chapter again! Loved it very very very much! Don't even know where to start. This: "We are going to get this baby out of me. And we'll do it soon." This was sooooo incredibly in-character Elsie! As was dismissing the doctor. I loved impatient Charles. I half expected him to blindly march through the door in that middle of the final stage.
And I loved the epilogue, that words made the chapter even more perfect. And there's a second! I was so happy when I read that, it really sucks being an only child. So thank you!
Your descriptive style of writing was also very splendid again, very fluently to read.
Okay, I was very disappointed when I knew this would already be the last chapter, but you made a whole bunch up by writing a very satisfying, very wonderful one. Thank you very much for this chapter and story, I've had a wonderful time reading it. Thank you!

...and you are wonderful for writing this incredibly lovely story. :) I didn't expect the ending though, but it was all the better for it. Thanks for all of this. :)

Wow, I can't believe Thomas died. He's often a nasty chap in stories, but isn't often actually killed off. I'm kind of sorry for it, since he seemed so penitent at the end. But perhaps only in his death throes would he admit how kind Elsie was to him, and how he should have been more grateful. I think if he had been kinder, Charles might have been more generous if the baby were a boy and Thomas was out of luck in terms of the title and inheritance. Of course there could be nothing done about the inheritance, but there were things like allowances, perhaps Crawley House (did someone live there already? I know Bery's in the dower house...) for life. Anyway, great chapter!

Ha! It's so hilarious that she kicks the doctor out of her room! So Elsie. I'm glad Mrs. Turnbull was there to help. I know from reading the Script Book that Isobel Crawley was a Turnbull before she was a Crawley, so I think she must be a woman capable of helping with a birth.
I also love that she screams and hollers and curses. She doesn't try to be silent and ladylike. It hurts, so she's going to scream! So perfect.
Poor Charles is going nuts downstairs, where of course he can hear her yelling, which isn't very reassuring. But he knows at least that this is to be expected. It's too bad he doesn't have anyone with him to help him feel calmer.
I liked that they named their daughter Mary and I loved that this ended with her telling him that she had something just below her heart again. Sooooo sweeeeet and wonderful. Just marvelous. Great chapter and great story.

That was just... I'm just so happy now. Sighs

Perfect ending to a perfect story! I love that they had a girl and I love that you left the possibility for them to get a boy as well.
I knew Elsie was going to do this her way, poor doctor, he probably didn't know what hit him.
Can I say that I very much hope for a sequel? If you find the time of course.
Anyway, thank you for this very very VERY enjoyable read that has managed to make me happy almost every day!
