Author has written 28 stories for Downton Abbey, Something's Gotta Give, and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.

Downton Abbey - OTP: Cobert

Other ships: Chelsie, Baxley

I also write some highly speculative (and therefore very fun) things about Violet and her husband (Patrick). Also, Martha and Isidore, and Rosamund and Marmaduke.

Something's Got to Give - OTP: Harry x Erica
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - OTP: Phrack (But I haven't written one about them yet.)


In the works (I'm behind on almost all of these - sorry):

  1. The Absinthe on My Lips - Cobert Holiday Exchange, 2014, Addicted to Love prequel- not sure how far it will go. ;)
  2. Strangeness and Charm - including the Cobert courtship and I haven't planned how far
  3. Seven Devils - first months of Cobert marriage, ?? chapters
  4. Those Sweet Words - Cobert Valentine day fic - featuring Vipat as well.
  5. A Violet and Patrick fic - unsure how long it will be - Just Be
  6. Richobel fic, Put Your Arms Around Me
  7. How Sweet and Wonderful Life Can Be - Erica x Harry, from the movie Something's Gotta Give
  8. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody - Modern AU sequel to Addicted to Love involving Cobert, Vipat, Rosaduke, and Marthadore (the Levinsons as sex therapists) - not a clue how many chapters.
  9. Hardest of Hearts - young, pre-marriage Violet and Patrick.

Author's note: I tend to weave elements from my other stories into current ones. So if you read something that seems familiar to the characters but not to you (and seems unexplained), it's probably because it's shown up in a previous fic. For example - a certain emerald green scarf which makes appearances or is referred to in Open Your Eyes (originally), Heartlines, and Spectrum. Another example - One of my OC characters, Hazel Perkins, makes her debut in An Affair of the Heart and reappears in Spectrum. There are other elements that show up in different places as well. *Never hesitate to ask me about something about which you are unsure.*


In case you want to read the Cobert stories in chronological order:

  1. Strangeness and Charm (Summer 1888) - incomplete
  2. Seven Devils (October 1888-February 1889) - incomplete
  3. Open Your Eyes (February 1889)
  4. Take Me Back to the Start (October/November 1890)
  5. Those Sweet Words (February 1893) - incomplete
  6. An Affair of the Heart (Summer 1894)
  7. A Gift Worth Unwrapping (Christmas 1920)
  8. Come Away with Me (July 1921)
  9. The Silence in Between (August 1921)
  10. Heartlines (October/November 1921)
  11. Spectrum (November 1921 - May 1922)
  12. Dashing Through the Snow (January 1931-ish)

And the modern AU:

  1. The Absinthe on My Lips - incomplete
  2. Addicted to Love (Four years later)
  3. A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (Six months after that) - incomplete
