From the Beginning
by ChelsieSouloftheAbbey reviews
Friendship birthday fic for the amazing dibdab4. Stand alone, but perhaps the precursor to something more. Pre-canon.

A Little Unsteady reviews
A little in-canon Chelsie fic that opens on that scene by the sea in Brighton. What did they talk about - what did they THINK about - as they stood in the surf together? And what was it like, those months in between realizing love, and acknowledging it?

A Yorkshire Summer reviews
It's the summer of 1927 in Yorkshire! Expect loads of love, sweetness, multiple pairings, and lots of drama! EDITED AND UPDATED AGAIN: This started as a Chelsie/Baxley fic and has greatly expanded. And while there's lots of happy scenes, there's some angst. Expect lots of Richobel and LOTS of Thomas/OC, with lots of other downstairs folks mixed in and a happy ending for everyone!

Phoenix Rising reviews
A Baxley "first kiss" fic. Takes place during the events of the show's finale a wee bit longer afterwards. There's a reason Phyllis checked her hair in the mirror prior to trying to catch Edith's bouquet! This is a companion to my Baxley story "60 Pubs in York". (Not required, but suggested, reading to catch nuances).

In the Hallway & In the Study reviews
A tiny, fluffy Chelsie moment, inspired by her heartfelt speech about their wedding venue in that posh drawing room.

60 Pubs in York reviews
My first foray into Baxley fic. As the title implies, the story will revolve around their journeys and investigations in York, to exonerate Bates for the murder of Mr. Greene. As my Chelsie readers know, I tend to write in-canon, but there's lots of empty canvas with these two. I hope to fill some of it in satisfactorily.

Night Moments reviews
Chelsie-centric, period set, mostly in-canon "missing moments" fic, starting in 1920 (S3), with a little twist: all events, conversations, and activities (AHEM) take place between the hours of midnight and four a.m. Expect later chapters to bump this to an "M" rating, for obvious reasons. A loose companion piece to A History of Moments.

Donk's Honky Tonk reviews
Modern AU Fic, focusing on Chelsie pairing, primarily, but others as well. All of your DA faves will make an appearance. Elsie Hughes runs a cozy local dive called Donk's, owned by Rob Crawley. There will be intrigue, romance, POSSIBLY MURDER!, line dancing, Patsy Cline, shots of whiskey, neon signs shaped like boots and more! A gift fic for my hubby, at his request.

In Flux reviews
An in-canon Chelsie fic set during the duration of Season 5. Touches on all of the things, big and small, that create tension, high emotions and, eventually, the impetus to action for our favorite butler and housekeeper. References will be made to my Chelsie monolith, A History of Moments, and excerpts therefrom may be woven into this story.

The Gift reviews
A small, multi-chapter story about the endurance of love, how we touch each other, even after we are gone. An epilogue of sorts to "A History of Moments". Events and characters are based on my monolith to Cheslie, so new readers might miss some things without reading AHoM. WARNING: STORY TAKES PLACE AFTER CHARLES HAS DIED. It's sad, uplifting, loving, hopeful.

A History of Moments reviews
A Chelsie fic delving into significant moments of their past at Downton, canon moments and beyond. Begins shortly after Elsie arrives at Downton and will follow through their entire relationship. Other characters appear, but this is most definitely a close-up look at how this relationship and his couple evolved over the decades. A few chapters have mature content

A Caryl fic inspired by and starting just before the events of 7x10. I write with rotating POV between Carol and Daryl, and attempt to keep all characters in canon as much as possible. This story is a reflection on the light, the life force in all of us, and what happens when Carol attempts to darken hers by retreating from the world and all she loves. It simply cannot work.

I'm baaaaack. Loved the S5E1 premiere, of course, and I started writing a one-shot inspired by THHRW (The Hug Heard 'Round the World"). A one-shot that is...no longer a one-shot. Some reunion thoughts and pre-ZA musings, and, of course, eventual Caryl. Rated T due to addressing domestic/child abuse and occasional swear word.

The Lady & the Tiger reviews
Directly following "The Grove" (S4E14). I hesitate to call this story "Caryl", but I suppose it could be perceived that way. My take on what happens when the two former confidantes meet again, after both losing so much. Carol's POV. Short, multi-chapter fic.

Post S4 Mid-Season Finale. Spoilers abound. Well...I'm back, for now. Everything I write comes back to Caryl, eventually, but this will likely include POVs other than theirs as well. All is scattered, and pieces are missing. Can the group ever be whole again? Can their hearts ever recover?

Stone - Or, A Rock & a Hard Place reviews
A short, melancholy one-off after viewing S4 E4. This very likely is my Caryl FF swan song.

Compost is something created from discarded scraps and dying matter, turning these things into a viable source of life and sustenance. Eventual Caryl, but also the story, in snapshots, of how two such viable scraps become life-sustaining. Story starts beginning of season 1 with new material and in-canon scenes...

A one-shot fic-let meant as a companion piece/epilogue-of-sorts to "The Art of Opportunity". Set within that story's narration, eight months later, the day Maggie delivers her baby. Established Caryl. Sweet snapshot. Enjoy!

The Art of Opportunity reviews
Inspired by the preview for Season 4. Love all of the possibilities with the expansion of the core group. Daryl and Carol have always had something special, inching their way towards something more than friendship. Can anything (or anyone) delay - or interrupt - that journey? Read to find out...I missed writing Caryl fic!

Foolish Words & Calm Places reviews
A Sherlolly experiment. Never written these characters before, but I have really enjoyed certain moments between the two on the show. I love writing about atypical relationships, and theirs certainly could categorized as one, if only because Sherlock Holmes is one of the parties to it! For now, it may just be a collection of moments...but stories often have lives of their own, no?

The Time is Now reviews
My version of Book 7...I started this fanfic back in '06. Very in-canon through Book 6. Didn't get to finish before DH came out, so it fell out of canon. Now, I want to revive it and HOPEFULLY Finish it. Romance/Action/Drama. Mainly Ron/Hermione shipped, but Harry/Ginny as well. Told in rotating POVs from the main trio's perspective. Love, death, Horcruxes, the Burrow and more!

Shoe Box reviews
Hi lovely Caryl shippers! This is a one-shot based on the following contest prompt from the USS Caryl Tumblr: Write a Caryl-centric story that a) takes place in the watchtower; b) contains the phrase "deer are so (f**king) majestic"; and c) reference the following items: a rubber ducky, a purple scarf, a toothbrush and a shoe box.

Those Lonely Little Spaces reviews
At the request of CheapTrixie - another TWD Caryl fic. A "missing moments" fic from S3E10 onward. Will be as in-canon as possible through the finale... Carol/Daryl rotating POV, but lots of other character development as well.

Pink Paperclips reviews
"The time for pleasurable things is over". This story begins mid-S3 as Carol muses over her past and her present, wondering that such a world could still bring unexpected moments of pleasure and joy. This is a story of the hopeful qualities of human nature, and how hope can live side by side with sadness. Primarily Caryl, but general/drama fanfic as well.
