Charles Blake is curious to know more about Matthew. At Mary's suggestion, he asks Tom Branson about him. This is my idea of how that conversation might have gone. I own none of these characters, but I like them a lot!

A Softer Side reviews
Inspired by a scene in S4 E8. Mary is curious to know why Charles Blake seemed so happy to be interacting with little George. Feeling the need to know more about his "softer side," she finds out quite a bit more than she expected. One-shot by a first-time author, emboldened by the example of so many wonderful writers here! Julian Fellowes owns these characters.
