Elsie's Etude by chatelaines reviews
Carson & Hughes married, impending BabyBates!, smut, feels and flashback sequences — because I don't know about you but I really want Carson to revisit the Cheerful Charlies chapters of his life at least once. And Elsie's got to reveal more about Becky. Obviously plenty of S5 spoilers, and maybe S6 ones if I'm Nostradamus. Rated M overall because there will be adult scenarios ;)
