Author has written 84 stories for Downton Abbey, and Ghost Whisperer.

I have written a wide variety of fanfiction stories here, covering many bases, but most are one-shots, modern AUs, and romantic fluff because that is what I am most confident writing. I also very much enjoy writing smut when I'm in the right mood. About a quarter of the fics I've written have been smutty.

Ghost Whisperer

I have written one story for Ghost Whisperer. As much as I love the show and I enjoyed writing this one story, it is highly unlikely that I will write anything more for Ghost Whisperer in the future.

Moonlight Walk – M, one-shot

Downton Abbey

For all of my Downton stories, you can assume that they’re modern AU unless otherwise specified.

Practically all of my Downton stories are Sybil/Tom orientated. However, some stories have a much heavier focus on other characters.

We Made the Most of Love – K plus, multi-chapter, complete, period AU, predominant characters Mary and Matthew
Christmas at Downton 1921 – K, one-shot, period AU, predominant character Mary
That Was Then, This Is Now – K, multi-chapter, in progress, period AU, predominant character Mary
True Love – T, one-shot, predominant characters Mary and Matthew
She’s a Fighter – T, multi-chapter, in progress, predominant characters Mary, Anna and Bates

Now come all of my Sybil/Tom stories.

Whilst almost all of my stories are one-shots, I have written a few multi-chapters. These are the complete ones.

Long-lost Love – T
Family Visit – K
12 Days of Sybil and Tom – M
Natural Love – M
Next Door Neighbour – M
One Phone Call Away – M
When We Dream of the Stars - K plus

And these are the in progress ones, some of which I haven’t touched in months. I have not intentionally abandoned them. I simply drifted out of them and haven’t had the time and motivation to get back into them. I intend to complete all of these in the future, though it will likely take me years to get them all done.

A New Start – T
Pillow Talk – T

As I said, most of my stories are one-shots. These have varying ratings, lengths, themes etc. Browse your way through to find what you might enjoy.

A Children’s Easter Party – K
A Starry Night – K
A Sunday Morning in September – K, period AU

These stories were written as part of Smut Weekend Part Deux and Lady Sybil Lives (LSL) Week in 2014. For the Smut Weekend, I wrote one story per day, getting more and more smutty as the days went on. Then I wrote one story per day for each theme of LSL Week.

Smitten in Puppy Love – K, Smut Weekend Part Deux
Not Today – M, Smut Weekend Part Deux
Race to the End – M, Smut Weekend Part Deux
Up to the Task – K, LSL Week: Angst/Hurt & Comfort

One Phone Call Away (Chapter 6 update) – T, LSL Week: Blogger’s Choice

For Sybil x Tom Romance Week 2017 I set myself the task of writing one story for each day of the week, as per the theme of the day.

Our Love Unfurling – M, Romance Week: Anniversary
Two Hearts – K plus, Romance Week: Historical Romance, set in the same universe as Broken Hearts Can Heal
Their First Chapter – K plus, Romance Week: Contemporary Romance
Trust Me, Help Me, Love Me – K plus, Romance Week: Romantic Suspense

Dig for Victory – K, Romance Week: July 2017 Rock the AU: WW2
Pillow Talk (Chapter 6 update) – T, Romance Week: Free Day

Some other Sybil/Tom fans who are fanfiction and Tumblr users organised a Rock the AU theme for each month. The idea is that, by having a theme each month, it may provide writers with some inspiration if they’re struggling for ideas. In 2014, I set the goal for myself to write a one-shot for each month. So here is the list of the fics I wrote for the 2014 Rock the AU themes.

January: World War II: Air Raids Aren’t Completely Terrible – K
February: Valentine’s: Valentine’s Courage – K
March: Bond: Spies and Sex – M
April: Spring: The Joys of Spring – M
May: Mayday, Mayday: Emergency Room Anguish – K plus, set in the same universe as Chase Me Charlie
June: Weddings: Insecure Away from Home – K
July: Summer Holiday: Ice Creams and Sandcastles – K plus
August: World War I: Time to Cry – K
September: Sport: Time and Attention – T
October: In Costume: Backstage Crew – K plus, also part of LSL week 2014
November: Snow: Tea with Snow – K
December: Christmas Holidays: Flattery Works Wonders – K plus

In the middle of 2020, I started up Rock the AU again after it had died out, with the intention of going back to my roots of 2014 and writing one story for every monthly theme. I started in August. These are the fics I wrote for the 2020 Rock the AU themes.

August: Prom/Ball: The Lady in the Corset - M
September: Double Date: Remembering the First Date - K
October: Abroad: Loitering Souls - M

In the Sybil/Tom fandom, there are a great deal of events organised. As already mentioned, I have previously taken part in rock the AUs and Smut Weekend/LSL Week. I have also written some birthday drabbles for a few people, taken part in the STEAMM event and taken part in a number of the organised fic exchanges over the years.

Broken Down in February – K, Valentine’s exchange 2015 for JessieBess
Complicated Decisions – T, Christmas exchange 2013 for Ducky82
Rekindled Love – K, Christmas exchange 2014 for Ducky82
Her First Irish Christmas – M, Christmas exchange 2015 for gingerbreadsargent
Hosting Christmas – M, Christmas exchange 2016 for gothamgirl28
Silver Linings – M, Christmas exchange 2017 for mimijag
Through Darkness and Snow - T, Christmas exchange 2018 for gothamgirl28
Fractured Love - M, Christmas exchange 2020 for pearlydewdrop
Complete Family Exhaustion – T, STEAMM (Sybil/Tom, Edith/Anthony, Mary/Matthew) 2013
Perfect – K, birthday gift for Repmet 2014
Of Course I Don’t Mind – K, birthday gift for piperholmes 2014

If you want to see some more of my writing, feel free to go to my Tumblr page (). Sometimes there I receive prompts, which I use as inspiration to write little drabbles. These don’t tend to make it on to my fanfiction account, but I’m still very proud of some of them. If you do pop over to check out my Tumblr, I warn you that I’m very poor when it comes to tagging, so you might find it a little challenging to find my drabbles. I suggest a good starting point might be to search for Sybil Branson, Tom Branson or Sybil Crawley on my blog and then go from there.

The Sybil/Tom fandom is incredibly talented (as is the rest of the Downton fandom, but I just happen to know a lot more about Sybil/Tom specific stories). As such, I encourage you to go and check out some of the other authors in this wonderful community. I suggest taking a look at my favourite stories as a starting point. Happy reading!

12 Days of Sybil and Tom reviews
The story of Sybil and Tom as they spend from December 25th to January 5th spending their lives together - making gingerbread men, building snowmen and much more. Done as a modern AU and unrelated to anything else. (Most chapters will not be rated M, but the first chapter is - think of it as a Christmas present for all the Sybil/Tom shippers!)

She's A Fighter reviews
Modern AU. Anna is almost killed in a car accident and Mary, her best friend, John, her husband, and Thomas, the driver of the car try not to worry themselves too much, always telling themselves that she'll get through it without any problems, despite what they really feel inside. Rated T because I'm paranoid that I'll rate it too low.

Complete Family Exhaustion reviews
Modern AU. STEAMM day fic. All of the Crawley sisters are at Sybil's with their husbands and children for the Christmas holiday. The ladies go out to get some shopping done and the men stay at home and do their best to control four trouble-causing children. Only rated T because I'm paranoid about the ending being a bit suggestive.

You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth
Based on the song by Meat Loaf. Modern AU in Ireland. Sybil and Tom are on their honeymoon - not on their first night together - and they enjoy each other's company... Starts with just fluff, but it quickly escalates into smutty goodness.

The Female Voice of Reason
Modern AU. One-shot. Set around Christmas time. Sybil wakes up to find that Tom and his friends have got drunk and have made Sybil's house completely indistinguishable to what it was when she last saw it. Just a bit of fun - not really a story for any purpose at all.

Christmas at Downton 1921
It's Christmas in 1921 at Downton Abbey and Mary narrates what happened on that day. There are ups and downs and a few tears, and of course, the annual Crawley Christmas argument, but what would Christmas be without all that at Downton Abbey?
