Author has written 9 stories for Downton Abbey.

If you hated the finale of S3 on Downton and wish Matthew could return to Mary and George in a plausible way, FOLLOW ME. I've found a way to make it happen

I love happy endings in fiction as I am a firm believer that we all suffer enough heartache and pain in the real world. My quest for this nirvana on the written page motivated me to write Downton Abbey fan fiction as I am a huge fan of the show (pre Season 4).

I ship Matthew and Mary like no other. To me, their romance is as epic as Rhett and Scarlett or Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. It would have pleased me to no end to see that romance in tact when the curtain finally came down on Downton Abbey. Sadly Julian Fellowes steered Downton in a entirely different and in my opinion, tragic direction. That is why I have taken it upon myself to bring the floppy-haired solicitor from Manchester back to life in a plausible way. The stories that I have created could be canon.

It is my fervent hope that you will enjoy Matthew and Mary's tales. Please share your thoughts with me as I truly value your opinion. A great deal of time and research went into creating this AU and reviews not only make my day but encourage me to write more.

You can find me on tumblr and instagram, too. Just search for msmenna.
