Bring me back to life by Chelsieobsessed1980 reviews
I know that I have already written one story based on Elsie's health scare, but this plot is just to good material to leave it alone, so this time I will lead us through the scene where Charles found out that Elsie doesn't have cancer, but instead of singing (that was lovely, wasn't it?), he will react in quite different manner, which would lead to a another course of events.

I will Mr Carson, very much by Chelsieobsessed1980 reviews
Here is another idea that appeared in my rather Chelsie-crazy mind. A famous "Don't tell me you'll miss me" conversation that happened in episode 6 of season 2. What if it had gone another way than it really did? Wouldn't it be a perfect moment to start the journey with our Chelsie, instead of waiting for it till the end of season five? Let's find out ;-)
