Author has written 8 stories for Downton Abbey.

This is an account for stories co-written by OrangeShipper and Silvestria.

We are British, have a slightly unhealthy obsession with tea, and a far healthier one with Matthew and Lady Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey. We RP these characters on the DA Forums and on twitter as @Lady_M_Crawley and @CaptainCrawley and our RPs have expanded beyond the confines the game into stories which we would like to share with you here.

Matthew: OrangeShipper

Mary: Silvestria

Our stories tend towards having happy endings. By 'happy endings' we mean 'lots of kissing'. You have been warned! We hope you enjoy reading them and will check out the stories we have written individually as well.

Consequences of the Castle reviews
Summer 1913. When a bitter argument at Scarborough Castle turns into something altogether more passionate, Matthew and Mary find themselves forced to deal with the emotional and practical consequences of their unthinking actions. S01 AU smutty epic.

Not So Under the Weather reviews
Several months into their marriage, Mary finds herself a little unwell. Matthew makes the mistake of bringing it up at dinner with their family. Fluffier than a goose down pillow. Future fic because it's going to happen.

Bubbling Over reviews
AU sequel to Storm in a Tea-Cup. What if Matthew had followed Mary out of Crawley House as you all wish he had? In other words, a subtle exploration of the Slap Slap Kiss trope. For those of you who miss S01. Now with added heated rain kissing!
