Downton Abbey & Zombies by The Yankee Countess reviews
What if the Zombie Apocalypse took place immediately following WWI? What if the poison gas used in WWI caused serious, biological repercussions, that brought the dead...back to life? What if the men and women of Downton Abbey, both upstairs and downstairs, had to unite to fight off a horde of flesh-eating monsters? Inspired by AMC's "The Walking Dead"

Say You Will Save Me by LittlePoppett reviews
This is from an idea thrown about on tumblr yesterday that in my impatience in waiting for someone else to write, I had a go at myself. AU. Tom and Sybil are not caught prior to their elopement - how do both they and the family react to their sudden marriage, undertaken with such secrecy?

Can the present be something neither the past or future could? And should it? This is my Anthony. Although I love him dearly, he is prone to getting things backwards. Thinking what should be said when he should say it instead. Or, saying the wrong thing completely. But that's alright. Edith is her own woman now – or trying hard to be – and she doesn't mind driving.
