    Summary

    "A happy family is but an earlier heaven" - George Bernard Shaw

    Set in the world of my completed story A Strange Situation, these are basically plotless fluffy happy oneshots that I need to write to cheer myself up during these awful times. They're in a totally random, non chronological order. Prompts and requests absolutely welcome!

    Most chapters are a U (G?) rating and totally family friendly. Any E rated chapters are fully labelled so you can skip those if not your taste.

    Summary

    A mid-canon retelling of North and South (some BBC, some original Gaskell), taking up from the aftermath of Mrs. Hale's death. As Margaret processes her grief for her mother, Mr. Thornton's anguish only increases when he learns of a new charming mill-owner who befriends the Hale family. Through misunderstandings and angst, they finally learn to see eye to eye. This is a slow burn to their HEA, with plenty of kissing and fluff along the way. All explicit (i.e. smut) chapters will be labelled accordingly in the beginning notes. I'm posting a new chapter every Saturday :)

    Summary

    “While the Master of Marlborough Mills was thinking about all these worst-case scenarios, something moved in the corner of his eye. Some reflection in the glass. He looked at it. Surely it was a figment of his imagination. He turned around and she was standing there. The curls of her hair dancing in the wind as she looked at him with a shy but determined smile. They locked eyes and he couldn’t help it, a wide smile came to his face. He could not believe it! There she was, in all her regal glory, with a bag in her hand.”

    A small one-shot that picks up where the 2004 series end. Contains Northbound trains.

Some angst, some fluffy "locked in a room together" HEA goodness, and lots of tragedy to start. Blend of the BBC 2004 miniseries and the book. Please see notes if you wish to avoid descriptions of the incident.
