Author has written 88 stories for Stargate: SG-1, and Downton Abbey.

Hello!

Aside from three very early Stargate SG-1 fanfics, welcome to my sizeable repository of Downton Abbey writings. Nearly all Matthew/Mary, usually together, occasionally on their own, with many guest appearances along the way. A rather alarming number happen to be M-rated. What can I say...!

If you're familiar with Tumblr, my blog over there can be found here - do pop over!

If you're a tweeter, my own account is @ClunkHall - please feel free to follow or say hello. Tweeting usually consists of writing updates, RL mutterings and sudden attacks of feelings about M/M.

I hope you enjoy what you find! And have a lovely day. :)

It was the end between them, they knew that, but what they'd shared would make the lives they must endure easier to bear. At least, that was what they told themselves... for having known each other, how could they bear it now? AU from 2x08.
