The Life and Times
by Jewels5 reviews
She was dramatic. He was dynamic. She was precise. He was impulsive. He was James, and she was Lily, and one day they shared a kiss, but before that they shared many arguments, for he was cocky, and she was sweet, and matters of the heart require time.

Phantom Limb reviews
Full disclosure: I stopped watching the show after 3x05 because I knew that the writers would not give Mary the chance to properly mourn Francis before throwing her at another man...and I NEEDED to see her mourn because, quite frankly, *I* am still mourning. So here is my take on Mary's journey, from her POV, as she both holds on and learns to let go. (In progress)

The Choice reviews
"If I was meant to love her, then I was meant to choose her." A narration of 3x05 from Francis's point-of-view. One-shot.

He Won't Be You reviews
A continuation of the conversation between Mary and Francis that occurs at the end of 3x03. When Mary reveals that she is considering a marriage to Don Carlos of Spain, she realizes that fears for the regency are not the only thing weighing on Francis's mind. One-shot.

My Sun and Stars are You reviews
Since it looks like the happy, carefree moments we've begged for are never going to happen, I suppose it's up to us to supply our own. I've always wanted to see Mary and Francis have a day - just ONE DAY - where they got to enjoy one another and be young and in love. So I'm giving them that. This takes place between 1x07 and 1x08, and I promise to try to go easy on the angst.

Time and Tide reviews
A narrative account of the conversation in which Francis tells Mary that he is dying. Some creative liberties were taken to make it, you know, MORE painful. Sorry. "Time does not bring relief; you all have lied. Who told me time would ease me of my pain! I miss him in the weeping of the rain; I want him at the shrinking of the tide." -Edna St. Vincent Millay

The Boy reviews
This was intended to be a sequel to "The Girl," chronicling Francis's life from the point of Mary's departure up to her return. It's not finished, and I doubt it ever will be now that the fandom is in shambles, so I'm submitting it as is. (Note: The character of Alain Janvier was intended to be the blacksmith who taught Francis to make swords. I never got that far. Sorry.)

"You don't move on from a love like that. You can only hope to survive it." This started out as a couple of outtakes from my story "In Their End is Their Beginning." After the fireflies scene happened, I thought I might dust it off and try to make something of it.

The Girl reviews
To Francis, Mary was never 'just a girl'. She was THE girl, and by the time we first see him onscreen, he has already found and lost her once. This story follows him from the day he first sees the dark-haired girl who had crossed the sea to be his bride, to the day he awakens to suddenly find her gone, knowing that years would pass before-if ever-he sees her again.
