Had things been different by Captainfredrickwentworth reviews
This is a retelling of Gaskell's North and South, but with a twist. At the beginning of our story, when Margaret is propositioned by Henry Lennox, she feels obligated to agree. (I've used a bit of poetic license with her reasons). Anyway, Margaret marries Lennox and then goes to visit her parents a few months later, as they have moved north. What will happen when she meets John?

I am afraid I should be a Coward reviews
Sometimes darkness brings enlightenment. Soon after John Thornton's first proposal, our heroine begins to realize that the master of Marlborough Mills isn't the problem. North & South from (mostly) Margaret Hale's POV. I tend to stick mostly to the novel, but there will be glimmers of the 2004 BBC adaptation, too. (Thanks for the feedback! I'll be updating this story soon! :) )

The Terrors of Expectation reviews
Catherine Tilney has some very extraordinary nightmares. The title is from Northanger Abbey, but I've manipulated the original meaning of the phrase to fit the themes of the work. :) Yeah, I like the Disney Haunted Mansions. Catherine would love them, too. ;) Happy Hallowe'en!

Things Jane Fairfax and Frank Churchill might have been thinking/doing while everyone else was distracted by picnics. I use some of Austen's text to fit the pieces of my version of their plotline together with their actual plotline in the novel. It's meant to be canon-compliant.
