Cherish The Moment by OrangeShipper reviews
AU, August 1917. On a too-rare trip home from the trenches, Matthew tries to cherish the time he has with his family, as hard as it is to forget his life at the front. One-shot sequel to With All The Time In The World, though can be read alone. Strong T rating for implied smut and language.

What's In A Name? by miss Kittyplank reviews
This one-off story compliments Home Is Where The Heart Is, so I would probably read that before otherwise this won't make too much sense. It details the births of all of Mary's children - with Richard and Matthew (so pre- and post- HIWTHI) - and the naming of them.

en pointe by arabesque05 reviews
Matthew doesn't really know much about ballet; but he knows a lot about finances and how to run a business, which was the whole point of bringing him into the company in the first place. Still, it doesn't prevent Mary from looking at him as if he were a fly found in her soup. Modern day ballet AU.

In a chance meeting the day after the princess and the sea-monster argument, Matthew and Mary's simmering bitterness and insults descend into a power-play that they were not at all prepared for and cannot control. AU 1x02 smut.
