Author has written 14 stories for Downton Abbey.

Hello

Thanks for reading my stories. Just to reassure everyone I love MM in the they are my hearts, my forever OTP, the "I will go down with this ship" kind of love. I write a touch of angst. But it is never meant to manipulate or to antagonize. It is not meant to denigrate any character. I love them too much! :)
