Author has written 7 stories for Downton Abbey, and Vampire Diaries.

I like: beautiful words, champagne, books, books, books, red nail polis, italian, lavender, espresso & Downton Abbey.

I believe that Maggie Smith is simply da bomb. And you may tell her I said so.

I like to read stories about Matthew & Mary and Sybil & Branson. I also like to read stories that are updated often with quality storytelling. But I won't lie–if the storytelling is good enough, I will wait forever with an update. I hope that this is what you can expect from me. But we shall see...

In other news, just got myself a tumblr: ladonnaingenua dot tumblr dot com. I post about the story I am writing so you might be interested.

Never Such Innocence Again by Chickwriter reviews
June 1918. "All alone, with plenty of money, and a house in Eaton Square? I can't imagine anything better." It came too soon for her, and now Lady Mary Carlisle feels nothing. Definitely AU and positively M/M.

Thoroughly Modern Mary by Silvestria reviews
It's Christmas Eve 1921 and the prodigal daughter has finally returned from Paris, her modern morals the only thing more shocking than her modern hairstyle. No Christmas Special spoilers. Rated for glamorous smoking, wild Charleston dancing & innuendo.

A Girl You Knew reviews
AU Matthew marries a very much alive Lavinia, and the show that flopped keeps flopping and the dance they danced keeps playing in their heads. Mary realizes she is not the only girl in the world, but a girl he once knew and decides to do the unexpected. While Mary comes back to life, Matthew realizes what he's given up. It's not what you think...or could it be? As of Chap 31, M.

Where Babies Come From reviews
A Grace-verse drabble for a special someone. Eventually it will be added to the group of Grace drabbles but this one skips ahead in time a bit. If you haven't read Grace, this won't make much sense. If you have read Grace, I hope you like it.

Love Letters reviews
In the distant future/AU. "Sometimes they send one another postcards. Glossy tourist attractions on one side not withstanding, this is how they know where the other is. Of course, you can only say so much on a postcard. There is protection against saying too much." They were together & happy. Now they are apart. Is it possible to find one another again?
