Suppression by coldie voldie reviews
There is a word that exposes the very soul of John Thorntons relationship with Margaret Hale. One word which defines their love, their life, and their desperate pursuit of one for the other. One word that ties together each shared moment, and embodies every aspect of a battle not so easily won: Suppression.

Missing Pieces by BlueHeeler reviews
Some of the personal/emotional scenes in the finale were to short and there was such a big gap between where we were left, and MK married and expecting their first child. This fic extends a couple of scenes from the finale that I wish were longer and takes a quick trip past the finale to see what would have happened. MK with a few chunks of Dutchy. Repost from another forum.
